Getting Through the First Day of School

Your child’s first day of school can be emotional for the both of you. If they’ve been at home for the first two or three years of their life, the idea of them going out and living their own life at nursery for a few hours a day can be a hard pill to swallow. As a parent, you can’t …

When Will Winter & Spring Finish Their Arguing?

Seriously Spring time, grow some balls and kick this Winter away sooner rather than later. So in case you are not living in the UK, we are currently living in an icy, snowy, winter wonderland yet again. It’s hard to believe that the photos in this blog post were taken on Friday. On Friday, I found myself outside without my …

Siblings 2018 – March

What an extremely odd month we have had. We were teased with a nice warm weekend, with sunshine and flowers sprouting up everywhere. A tiny glimmer of hope to the Spring and Summer being well on its way, then out of nowhere the Beast From The East hit and covered the UK in thick snow! I haven’t actually taken many …

Is It Lucky To Have Child Free Time?

I hear it so often when I tell people I’m child free and that we get to have this once a month for an entire weekend. “You’re so lucky!” But is it luck really? And is that luck mine or the kids? If you are new to my blog, I am a mum of three girls. I had my first …

Special Needs Diary #14 – Autism Assessment & Orthopaedic Shoes

It already feels like that snowy, winter wonderland we had last week was such a long time ago doesn’t it?! I keep looking at my photos wishing I’d taken more. It was just such a beautiful week. However, for us it also was a pretty awful week for P1. Change effects her hugely as you will know if you’ve followed …

World Book Day 2018

It’s World Book Day. A yearly event that celebrates books and reading. I am a huge lover of a good book, especially children’s books now that I am a parent. I love the excitement every evening when we settle down for a our bedtime story. Sadly, the snowy weather has postponed the school celebration of World Book Day but that …

Snow Day In Kent 2018

I’m here with yet another photo heavy blog post. In case you’ve been under a rock, snow has hit the UK this week and I’m loving it! You all know how much I hate the winter but this specific weather is one that I adore so much. It’s so pretty and so much fun. I was so excited to see …

Siblings 2018 – February

With the weather still pretty pants we have been spending a lot of time indoors at the weekends. I’d love to say we’ve been embracing the colder, wet days but we just haven’t. The girls get miserable when they get cold so it’s not enjoyable to adventure too far away from home at the moment. We’ve had a bit of …

Her 5th Birthday

I had every intention of writing this post up much closer to her actual birthday. I can’t believe it was over a week ago now and that we have a five year old! P2’s birthday was a big deal for her, as each year goes by she seems more and more excited. This time we’d been counting down the days …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Finally On The Waiting List

This week has been a really good one for us as a family. P2 turned 5 years old this week and we had a family trip out, it’s snowed and been frosty a few mornings too but the best news we’ve had this week is to do with P1. Right at the beginning of the week P1 had another routine …

What I Read My Kids In A Week

A bit of a different post from me today. I wanted to share with you what we read in a week. When P1 was much younger I didn’t like reading at bedtime. Bedtime was always quite horrific in this house so reading became a treat thing, rather than a joyous and bonding experience. I have always loved books so I …

Letter To My Princesses 2 – 5 Years

To my Princess 2, It’s your fifth birthday today and I think I’m in slight denial about it. I had picked some nice posed photos of you smiling innocently, but actually these photos speak more about your personality. This past year you have grown in personality. Big changes happened where you went from being a little nursery go-er to a …

5 Reasons Why I Love My Daughter’s Preschool Nursery

Picking a nursery, school or preschool is always a pretty daunting task when you are a parent. P1 went to a day nursery back when we lived in Essex, P2 went to preschool although it was called a nursery and P3 now goes to the same one. I hope this post maybe gives you an insight when you decide to …

Juggling A Special Needs Child With A Sibling At School Too

I actually drafted the title of this post a good few weeks ago, just after I had to juggle the need to be in two places at once for two different children of mine. But actually even more has happened since then. Since having two children in primary school and one in nursery, I have been really struggling to organise …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Preschool Booster Immunisations

My week has gone by with a flash. I swear it was just Monday right? And now it’s a new Monday tomorrow. I have recently been feeling like my life resolves around the school runs, and it really does. Moving forward I need to embrace this school mum life because it’s going to be the way of my life for …
