Princess 3’s Tongue-Tie Procedure

I was up early this morning after being woken up from my dream about my Nan by P1 upsetting P2. It was 6am and the house was still pretty dark. The early morning was ok this time as its been a busy day. Today was the day for P3s tongue-tie to be looked at and hopefully snipped. We’d been referred …

“Mummy, how do babies get inside your tummy?”

I thought I had a few years to come up with my answer to the birds and the bees questions. My six year old thought differently. The question was sprung just as I was kissing P1 goodnight. “Mummy, how do babies get inside your tummy?” She said innocently. She’s witnessed my two pregnancies, seen my tummy go from flat to …

“It was the icing on the cake” – Last Day of Half Term

We’ve had an exciting ten days off school for half term but the end half really has seemed to drag. We’ve done something every day this week which is huge for us as we tend to use the half term to relax. We’ve been to soft play twice, P1 has had a sleepover, we’ve seen my MiL and BiL on …

The Traumas of February Half Term 2015

I’m asking you to think about the absolute worse tantrum you’ve ever experienced with your child or relative. Times that moment by about 10 and you’ll have a clear image of my daughters. I look at these photos of them that I captured the other day and wonder how such beautiful little creatures can be the devil monsters that they …

Half Term Nature Trail Adventure

This time last year our household had been hit with a sickness bug (according to the TimeHop app) and half term, with all its plans and promises had gone out the window. I felt so guilty that week but we couldn’t help being ill. Nearly every school holiday since we’ve had some sort of illness that’s prevented us from enjoying …

“I wish I could capture every second”

Hubby is on his iPad as he usually is when we settle down in bed and I’m blogging. But there’s something slightly different. There isn’t the sound of a light snoring from P3. It’s been replaced by sniffling, grunting and the sound of her baby babbles. She’s quite content and awake in her SnuzPod. This is the difference. Normally each …

“I absolutely hate going to soft play with my girls”

It occurred to me today that I absolutely hate going to soft play with my girls. I’ve always thought of soft play as being a place that you can sort of relax and know that your children won’t hurt themselves too much thanks to the soft play equipment. When P2 was born, I went to our local soft play once …

“P1 has asked to do some baking and go to a soft play area this half term”

Half term has definitely crept up on us. We were invited into the school to watch P1s class assembly. Since joining this school and especially since starting Year 1, she has completely blossomed. Every time we watch her at school she seems to grow with confidence. P1s assembly was about penguins and the South Pole. This is what she’s been …

Siblings February 2015

It’s only the second month of our Siblings journey and I’m already struggling to find positions to get the girls in together. I’ve heard the saying “never work with children or animals” and my goodness it’s so true! We’ve recently changed their bedroom slightly, giving them space to play and move around. Removing the wardrobe seems to have made things …

“It was also P3s first time swimming”

This morning we went straight from the school run to the swimming pool. P1 swims every Tuesday morning with her school yet we are shamefully a family that doesn’t really go swimming together. I can’t remember the last time I saw P1 swim but I do remember the last time we took P2. P3 was in my tummy and I …

To My Princess 2 – 2 Years

To my Princess 2, I’ve been a little emotional this month as we’ve counted down the days until your 2nd birthday. These two years have gone ridiculously quick but it feels like such a long time ago that you were that podgy little baby at the hospital. You have such an amazing character. You’ve always been so hilarious in the …
