Grandparents Are The Bomb

My Grandparents are without a doubt the most amazing people in my life. They’ve always been there to support, guide, tell me off, bail me out with money issues in the past, feed me, teach me and most of love me no matter how smelly my attitude was as a child. My Grandparents babysit P1 every Tuesday and Thursday – …

Saturday Sleep

Yesterday was a very chilled day. My OH has been feeling pretty yucky for the past few days, probably caught from P1, so just wanted a day of relaxing. P1 spent the whole day upstairs in my brothers room with my Mum and stepdad – they are decorating it for when he gets back today from seeing his Dad. Living …

I Never Imagined

Blogging has become a huge part of my life. Before I started Life With Pink Princesses I had a blog over at blogspot, over there I only posted a couple of times a week. But here, I clearly post more, this is because I love the feedback I get and the ease of connecting with other bloggers. I had my …

A Squishy Read

Just a quick review because I’m watching the Grand National. We’ve been given so many things for P2. We’ve been ultra lucky from our friends and family. We have bags and boxes full of toys ready for when P2 needs them. Yesterday, P1 found a soft book that she wanted me to read to her. So I got both girls …

I’m So Proud

Ok just a “I’m so proud of my daughter” moment… This little lady is amazing. Both my girls are amazing but it’s currently 4am and this particular daughter has just woken up for her first night feed. After her usual 9-10pm crying non-stop episode that’s she’s made part of her routine since having her jabs… She finally had her feed …

Children And Pets

There’s so many articles and opinions on children and pets. I was brought up with a variety of animals – my mother was a veterinary nurse for over 15years, all of my childhood memories involve animals in some way of another. So my opinion is that it’s a good idea to introduce children to pets and animals at a young …

Organisation Is The Key

I would love to hear everyone’s tips on keeping a house tidy and in working order. You can purchase my eBook here: Becoming …

Why Isn’t It My Sleep Time Now?

I’ve had one of those days when you just sit there and think really?!? Those photos were taken earlier… You would never have guessed that P1 had just been sick. She’s been complaining of feeling sick for a few days now and I’m utterly convinced it’s because she hasn’t been eating properly recently – that’s for another post. She gagged …

DP – The Transporter

Tell us about a sensation — a taste, a smell, a piece of music — that transports you back to childhood. As a child I spent many holidays with my Grandparents at a farm. My Grandad had a very close friend who owned a farm in Somerset and we used to go over to help him manage the farm. I …

Money Can’t Buy Love

I was devastated when my fingers puffed up so that I couldn’t wear my engagement ring or my 18th birthday ring for my Grandparents during my pregnancy. Last Tuesday, I was sat in the doctors having our 6 week check up. Twiddling with my birthday ring when I suddenly realised my engagement wasn’t on my other hand! I panicked to …

Car Crash Trauma

I travelled to Kiddicare yesterday again to get P1 a new carseat. On the way there I noticed a pretty serious accident on the opposite side. All the emergency services, quite a few mashed up cars and a huge pile of traffic building up behind. As I drove past I felt a shiver down my body. A rush of emotions …

You Will Obey

Last night P1 ended up in bed early. This usually happens once a month and it’s enough to get her behaviour back on track. Last night my OH and I were completely at the end of our tether with her. The “naughty step” hadn’t worked its wonders and we were still getting smirks from her as we told her to …

I’ll Swap For The Longer Straw

So who the heck handed me the short straw this year? I’ll do absolutely anything to swap it. My two pregnancy experiences couldn’t of been more different. P1 – easy pregnancy, no sickness, 7weeks early but natural birth, 19hours of labour, no wounds down below, she had troubles breathing, weighed 4lb 13oz, bleeding ended within 4 weeks, milk dried up …
