Why Do We Have To Do This?

It seems we’ve hit another brick wall with P1. I hate this. Food is such an issue it’s ridiculous. You need food to survive. So why can’t she grasp the fact that she has to eat!! And that one or two mouthfuls just isn’t enough to sustain her. Breakfast is never an issue. She’ll happily have two helpings; a chocolate …

KBBF2013 – The Benefits Of Breastfeeding

So it’s the first day of the Keep Britain Breastfeeding Scavenger Hunt 2013. It feels like I’ve been waiting for this day for ages! But it is finally here, I’ve prepared all my posts and I’m ready to begin. I haven’t posted any breastfeeding photos on my blog before, but I’ve decided to be brave and share some of our …

I’m Vulnerable… Leave Me Alone!!!

Kids are so clever. Ridiculously. Or at least my one is. P1 always knows when we are at our most vulnerable. She’ll choose just the right moments to misbehave and cause a fuss. We had a truly superb day yesterday… We’d been to a play area that we hadn’t been to in ages and we even did some art which …

Hunky Monkey. I Love You!

I’ve been feeling really connected with my OH recently. There’s been a boost of both our efforts with each other and it’s made such a difference. Last night, unexpectedly P2 fell asleep and my OH and I chatted for hours. About the past, about the future, about us and about everything really! I love evenings like those. They feel magical. …

Mummy Time

I’ve had a lovely evening tonight. I’ve been baby free. I’ve been partner free. Yup, my OH babysat (if you can call it that for your own children?!) both the girls whilst I went alone to a Pole Fitness Class at the gym that P1 has her swimming lessons. My OH has always joked about me learning to pole dance. …

Maybe Baby

We had a slight break through last night. P2 had her last nap at about 6-7:30pm. We then managed to keep her awake until 10:30. Where she had her feed and I put her down awake with the mobile playing. She didn’t go to sleep straight away, I had to pick her up and give her a bit of a …

Is A Routine Needed

Sometimes I hate being small. Especially as I’m a parent too. Especially being a parent of P2. She’s huge! Very long, against me she looks like a toddler, against anyone else she’s still my teeny baby. We had her weighed today, 13lb 2oz. Last time she was weighed she dropped a line on the growth chart from 50th to 25th, …

I’ve been eagerly awaiting the date that it starts and we only have one more week to go! Wooo. I have also been …

Happy Father’s Day

I think Father’s Day is a little unfair. On Mother’s Day all mothers are meant to put their feet up and be completely spoiled rotten. On Father’s Day, all fathers are meant to have lay ins and be doted on…Erm… Doesn’t this happen every day?! My OH is an amazing Daddy. He truly is. He’s come into our life, P1 …

Oh Man!!!!!!

Seriously, I’m exhausted. Quick post this morning. P2 just would not settle in her cot last night. She’s done so well up until then. She woke up so many times I felt like a yoyo. I persevered three times but when the fourth arrived and they’d all been within about 3hours of me going to bed, I gave up. I …

This Is The Life

We tried out a different play centre today. The Fun Factory. It has an indoor ice rink, indoor climbing wall, soft play for ages 0-13yrs and a sensory room. I’m still debating as to whether its better than our usual choice of play. I love that it has more of a variety for the children. I love the sensory option …

First Tastes, Highchair Needed Soon?!

This morning we gave P2 her first taste of something other than milk. She’s 18 weeks old, a little early than the newly recommended 26weeks, but considering I weaned P1 at 4 months I’m quite confident that having a little munch on something wouldn’t harm her. P2 was allowed to try a rusk. She absolutely loved it! Her gums munched …

Little Bird Told Me – Papa Bear Review

I was approached by Little Bird Told Me recently to review a product for them. They gave me the choice of many beautiful toys. Luckily, I’m already a huge fan of their products and we have the Mama Bear and Activity Spiral, I really wanted to review the Birdy Bear Activity Toy but my OH persuaded me to get Papa …

DP – Person Of The Year

You’re asked to nominate someone for TIME’s Person of the Year. Who would it be, and why? My person of the year would be my OH. I’m slightly bias of course, he’s the one person that’s been there for me no matter what. In the past year he has held back my hair countless times whilst I suffer with morning …

Hollyoaks Upset

I was getting rather frustrated with a Hollyoaks story line. I know… It’s only a soap. If anyone watches it, you’ll all know about the Sinead O’Connor storyline. She fell pregnant with Rhys Ashworth’s baby, and has now given her baby to her step-mother. The whole storyline has frustrated me. I hate how Hollyoaks is making young mothers look like …
