Round Like A Circle

I’m feeling angry at myself. The anger gets stronger each day. I hate who I am. Who I’ve become. Where I’m heading. Why do I have no motivation? I have three things I need to do: 1) Express milk. 2) Tidy the room. 3) Exercise. I fail to even do one of those each day! All are as important as …

Fancy Dress Party

P1s God-Mother (aka in my blog as GM) celebrated her birthday with all her friends by holding a Film Character themed fancy dress party last night. Getting my costume was very last minute, my OH wore his work suit, P1 her favourite dress up and P2 in her bunny sleep suit… We all had a lovely time. It was actually …

V.I.M – Very Important Mummy’s

I hate being judged. Every single day I get judged. The main reason is because I’m a young parent. I can’t even hide away from being a younger parent because I’m 140cm tall (4ft 7in ish). My local children’s centre run several groups/sessions each day, all week and I’ve been to the Breastfeeding Group twice. On the first time a …

Bliss Buggy Push!

This is a plea… A plea for everyone to dig deep in their pockets (virtual, online pockets) and donate to a charity that is very close to my heart, Bliss. I don’t normally take part in anything to do with charities. I hate the way they rattle their tins in your face when you walk down the high street or …

To my Princess 2, This is your monthly update, it’s a little out of sync because I decided to do this when a month had already started. I really hope you and your sister will read these when you are older, something for you to look back on and see what we were all like back then. Week 14 This …

Wedding Planning – 115 Days To Go

So far wedding planning has gone quite smoothly. I’ve probably just jinxed that. We have got the date we wanted, and managed to book the reception venue we wanted. Ok, it’s not our original plan of having it all done in a beautiful stately home, but it’s still going to be perfect. We’ve ordered our invites, I’ve chosen a dress …

Gym Session Or Relax Session?!

Since our weekend away I’m happier, I think my OH is happier and our lives together is a lot more calmer. On Monday night we enjoyed another baby-free evening together. I always love being on my own with my OH because it reminds me that we are still “normal” people deep down. We still have a relationship that the fire …

God Looks After Nightmares

I’m feeling very guilty this morning. I was moaning about my brothers alarm vibrating on the floor above our bedroom waking us up to my mum through the bathroom door when P1 suddenly starting crying. I rushed into her room. She was clearly very very upset. She’d had a bad dream and the way she described it I’m not surprised …

Proud Mummy Moment – Nearly Rolling

It was only yesterday that I was moaning to the breast feeding support lady about how many babies P2s age were really chatty and some rolling over but P2 wasn’t. Now today, we have a screeching, squealing and very chatty little lady who has spent a good hour flipping her hips over and has even managed to get on to …

Allergic Reaction

Whenever I ask my OH to get me something from the shops I always get really nervous about what he’ll actually bring home with him. I had one of these incidents when I went into hospital to give birth to P2. With the amount of false alarms and hospital visits I’d run out of the little travel sized spray deodorants …

Our Weekend Away to Aldeburgh

We’re back to reality. We spent Friday to Sunday in Aldeburgh, a very beautiful seaside town in Suffolk. We stayed at the Wentworth Hotel which was paid for by my Mum for my OH birthday present from them. The hotel was just stunning. Really old fashioned, very posh and the staff were all welcoming. We didn’t know what to expect …

Mums Birthday Meal Ruined

We had an awful evening. It was my Mums birthday meal, her birthday is actually today but we are going away for the weekend. We went to test the food at the place we want for our reception venue. That part was fine. Something was completely wrong with P2, I tried everything… Boobie, nappy changing, covering/uncovering blankets, rocking, swinging, carrying, …

Building Up A Supply

I’ve been quite relaxed about expressing my breast milk. But now P2 is 16 weeks old I know that the weaning stage is right around the corner. My OH and I have agreed to wait until she’s at least 6 months before she starts on baby rice. Even though I weaned P1 at 4months. I read on the back of …
