The Dummy-Sucking-Sock-Munching-Lid-Wearing Monster

Somewhere, hiding away in a dark corner of my tiny little house lurks The Dummy-Sucking-Sock-Munching-Lid-Wearing Monster. As a Mum of three I’ve had plenty of experience. There’s three things I’ve found about parenting that are unavoidable. I blame the The Dummy-Sucking-Sock-Munching-Lid-Wearing Monster. It has to be! Right let’s tackle the dummy situation first. The amount of money we must have …

“At first I thought it may be because she’s struggling”

There’s so much going on in P1s life and I find it difficult to stay on board with it all. The other two take up so much of my time that I guilty sort of forget. I forget that she’s not an average little girl. This year has already seen some changes for P1 at school. They’ve started swimming lessons …

“The first argument of the day was about some play food”

My alarm went at 7:45am. This was the third alarm for this morning and so I knew it was time to push my tired body out of bed and get ready for the school run. P2 woke up and immediately wanted a cuddle, I made sure she took off her nappy and went on the potty first. P1 however was …

“We created our first Friday Movie Night!”

There’s an enormous community that comes with being a blogger. I spend a lot of time reading other blogs via the Bloglovin’ app. I tend to follow parent bloggers because I can really relate to them. It also gives me an insight to how other people live or parent and I’m guilty of comparing. Then Molly at A Mother’s Always …

Dear Peppa Pig, I have a bone to pick with you. I want to know when you will be returning my nearly two year old! It started with an episode here and there on the TV. Then they ventured to the laptop through YouTube. Now, Peppa, you have invaded our day to day life. We cannot escape. P2 is demanding …

“I’ve had nearly two years of broken sleep”

I’ve had nearly two years of broken sleep. Mr Google reckons this can have long-term side effects to your body functions. When we first introduced P3 to our nighttime routine, P2 was the reason for the 19months of sleepless nights. Then between the pair of them I was beginning to crumble. Things needed to change and change it did! P2 …

Siblings January 2015

In 2014 I had intentions to join in with as many photo projects that I could. There’s quite a few in the blogging world. I wanted it to help me document our life which was the reason for my blog. It didn’t quite work out as I planned and soon enough we found out we were expecting again. I then …

“It’s like someone flicked a switch and made me motivated”

It’s Friday already which means that P1 has completed her first week back to school and we’ve completed our first week back in a slight routine. This week has really been different. It’s like someone flicked a switch and made me motivated to move instead of lazing on the sofa. I’m still struggling to get up early, physically getting up …

Back To School After The Christmas Holidays

I can’t quite figure out if the Christmas holidays went quickly or slowly. With the household being poorly pretty much the majority of the holidays, the days seemed to roll into one and it was over within a blink of the eye. On the other hand, it seems like forever since it was Christmas. I want to be more organised …

To My Princess 2 – 1 Year 11 Months

To my Princess 2, We had a magical Christmas. It was the first one you understood and were able to enjoy. You was so well behaved on P1s birthday and didn’t get upset about her opening presents when you couldn’t then on Christmas Day you opened and appreciated each present. It was lovely to watch. I can’t believe you’ll be …

“P2s tantrums are beyond bearable”

The girls have swapped roles. P1 and P2 that is. I’ve wrote many posts about how naughty P1 is and how I don’t know what to do, and generally P2 has always been happy and well behaved. This past week or so we’ve seen some huge, horrible changes in P2. P2s tantrums are beyond bearable. She does the throwing on …

“I’d been imprisoned in my own home for 8 days!”

It had been 8 whole days since I last ventured outside the house. Hubby had been for food shopping or to take P2 to the doctors but not me, I’d been imprisoned in my own home for 8 days! At first it was quite nice to just chill out in our pjs. But the day we found out the car …

Christmas 2014

I sort of took a bit of an unexpected blogging break over Christmas. It wasn’t the plan and I wanted to blog but thanks to the newest update of the wordpress app, I’m unable to add featured images or any images without the app crashing. I wasn’t about to compromise on quality for the sake of a few posts so …

To My Princess 3 – 3 Months

To my Princess 3, It’s crazy that three months have now passed since you entered the world so dramatically. It’s hard to imagine my life without you. I’ve seen a real change in you the past month. You are exactly like a real baby now. So alert and awake! You are completely obsessed with your hands and fingers. Sometimes you …
