To my Princess 1 – 5 Years 2 Months

To my Princess 1, You’ve done remarkably well with the change of school. Ok, your behaviour has gone downhill again but the school have said you are settling in well and that’s all that matters. In fact over half term you kept asking when you were going back to school! You’re a very arty person and this month your drawings …

“I’m so nervous about P1 having the growth hormone test”

Last year, P1 had some blood tests and an X-ray to check her growth. We’ve been a little concerned and so was the paediatrician but considering I’m rather small (4ft 8in) we weren’t too worried about the results. Last Friday, we finally had the results back – she’s normal. Well, there’s nothing wrong with her bones anyway. The next step …

Kiddicare Sleep Diary Project – Part 1

We were asked to participate in Kiddicare’s Sleep project on mums and babies up to the age of 18months. We were asked to document the amount of sleep P2 and I had over 31 days. We started our diary on 1st February so it’s now been 19 days. I’m surprised that I’ve remembered to write in each day actually but …

“The house looks like Primark at Christmas!”

It’s been a week since the sickness bug started and about 5 days since it officially ended for me but I’m still not feeling 100% normal. It’s the school half term and we’ve done nothing remotely exciting which I feel totally guilty about. My blog has taken a bit of a side seat during our recovery process and the house …

“Her behaviour is beyond anything we’ve ever had to deal with”

I’m struggling to remember the last time that I went a whole day or even half a day without having to tell P1 off for something or argue with her. Life seems to be a constant battle – parents against child. Her behaviour is beyond anything we’ve ever had to deal with before. She’s become really rude and I’m really …

H&A Nemo Bubbly Bath Review

If you’re a long term reader you’ll know that we struggle with P2 in the bath/water subject. Although saying this the past few weeks have been a breeze as my MiL has been bathing her on a Wednesday night after P1s swimming. I think it helps that she actually has a bath and we only have a shower/plastic box round …

Unfortunately I didn’t win that title but it’s that time again. The nominations for the MAD Blog Awards 2014 are now open.There’s something about awards that …

Joules Lunch Box & Bath Crayons Review

Something that excited P1 about changing schools was the idea of having a packed lunch. It came completely out the blue because she’d been having school dinners for the past four months. I felt quite lucky when Joules sent us two beautiful packed lunch boxes and two sets of bath crayons.I’d never heard of Joules until my MiL bought me …

Happy 1st Birthday Princess 2

I blinked and a whole year whizzed past. Yup, P2 is a whole year, 12 months, 365 days, 52 weeks old. I know it’s crazy!! I apologise in advance. It’s a long one and a cuppa tea and biscuit may be needed… If you’re not too squeamish that it. I realised that last year I failed to write my labour …

Infasense Justafit Mulberry Sleep Suit Review

Crawling and toddling can spark a huge range of new and exciting things for a child. They can now reach those toys that are out of arms reach, climb mountains aka stairs and press the buttons on the Sky+ box. They also encounter the word “no” at this stage, experience many accidents caused by over independence and those terrible sleep …

Hubby and I have opened our own business! It’s a cloth nappy company and we’ve incorporated the girls names in the company name; Freeva. We have …
