We Are All Poorly

It all started on Wednesday. P3 had a restless night which is a little unusual for her but we headed off to playgroup blaming it on the new bottom tooth that was poking through. She was super clingy which is very unlike her and even the other mummies commented on it. She felt a little hot so I took her …

Storytime Magazine Review

I loved reading as a child, I still love reading now, and I’m a strong believe in having something physical to read rather than a digital copy of something. As a toddler, P1 loved books but as she’s getting bigger and learning to read by herself I have seen that love deteriorate. I think I have been focusing so much …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 16 Months

To my Princess 3, I bet you’re getting bored of reading all these letters when they start with “I can’t believe you’re X months old now”. Well I can’t. I sometimes wonder whether you and your sisters will just stumble upon these letters or if I’m going to print them all off and keep them in a folder for you. …

Children Explain ISOFIX With Britax

Becoming a new parent brings you so many responsibilities. One of the most important things is keeping your child safe at all times.

ISOFIX was something that confused the …

Valentines Jam Heart Biscuits

I used to hate Valentine’s Day. I felt it was very commercialised and a date in the diary specifically for people to make money from. Surely if you love someone you should be showing them that each day, not just one day out of 365. But then I joined the blogging world and this year I’m making an effort to …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – 4/52

Last Sunday we had woken up to glistening snow and spent the morning playing in the cold. This Sunday we woke up and headed to Essex, my hometown, to visit my Grandad. We went for breakfast at the Roebuck then off to get P1 and P3 some new shoes. Every time I mention my Grandad it’s always about feeling so …

A Weight Loss Motivation Boost

I am now 3 weeks into my weight loss journey. My main goal wasn’t really to eat healthier but to eat less. Like the saying goes “everything in moderation”. I planned to cut my portions by half and stick to eating 1,000 calories a day. A big thing for me to cut was the biscuits. During the first week I …

Breaking Her Milk Habit Before Her 3rd Birthday

At around 6 months of age a baby has the ability to sleep a full night of sleep. P1 was 10 months when she began to sleep an amazing 12 hour stretch. P2 is yet to reach that milestone and P3 exactly the same. They both have habits that need breaking.  A preschooler needs 11 hours of sleep plus a …

“I may have a daughter with autism”

Imagine giving your child a few packets of sweets, a can of cola and just to top it off nicely a bowl of ice cream topped with sprinkles. You watch their eyes widen, their body begin to go at extra fast, their voices louder and they become uncontrollable. That’s what it’s like to live with P1 right now. As soon …

A Snowy Winter Morning

I woke up today to our little village being covered in a dusting of white. We’d had a few flakes yesterday evening and at 2am when P2 woke asking for her usual milk, which was refused, I saw out of the window the glow of the snow in the dark. I was so excited for morning to come but by …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – 3/52

There’s gradually been more and more snowy winter photos appear on social media and I was left feeling rather glum as I watched the rain pour and the sky dark.

Siblings 2016 – January

For me the Siblings Project starts another year, our second year and once again I’m a little bit late in getting photos and posting. Our weekends are the only time that my girls get to spend quality time as a threesome. The rest of the week is dotted with P3 spending time on her own, or just P2 and P3 …
