“I’ve decided to take part in the Vlogmas hype”

I can’t believe we are actually in the run up to Christmas now. I feel like this year has gone so quickly!! Last year I made the girls a Santa sack each although I still haven’t finished P1s which is really awful of me. Seeing as I’m actively delving into the world of YouTube I’ve decided to take part in …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 14 Months

To my Princess 3, Wow, 14 months! I know I say this every single time but your babyhood is going so quickly and it feels like each time I blink you are doing something new. I have started to stop referring to you as a baby because you are now walking. It is very rare that you crawl and I …

Why Do Babies Cry?

Babies: For newborns, crying is their main way of communicating. Toddlers: Toddlers cry because they’re hungry, tired, uncomfortable or need affection – just like babies. Preschoolers and school-age children: Children tend to cry less as they get older. Once they can talk, it’s much easier for them to tell you why they’re upset and what they need. Why do we …

“The reality is I’ve been in my onesie all day sitting on the sofa”

Although I’m posting this today, Tuesday, I’m actually writing it yesterday. Confusing but I wanted to publish this yesterday but the video which is hopefully now below took literally all day to load to my computer. Blooming technology. As I’m writing this there’s a faint sound of snoring, I can hear Hubby downstairs watching YouTube videos and I’m sinking into …

“P3 stared at him warily”

Wednesday’s are always one of our busier days but at the same time it’s quite a pleasant day as P1 goes to an after school club. This week we invited my Grandad over. When my Grandad travels the 40 odd miles from his house to ours, I always worry that he’s coming such a long way and we never really …

Siblings November 2015

Family dynamics are changing. Our littlest is walking and causing lots of disruption. P1 loves that her baby sister is now able to play and the games they play are much more varied. However, P2 is struggling to come to terms with the situation. Her baby sister is now even more into destroying her games than ever before. Today we …

“I was bound to crack at some point”

Every so often, usually around when my period is due and I’m a hormonal wreck anyway, I have a mini breakdown where I feel useless and like I am failing. The girls have been slowly tearing away at me for a few weeks now and I was bound to crack at some point. Yesterday this happened. It was just after …

#BEDN – 12 – Your Local Area

I absolutely adore the area we live in. It is ranked at one of the richest towns in the UK which isn’t surprising and that theme sort of runs through the entire area. The health services are far more efficient and superior to the ones back in my home town, Essex. The schools are much better and that was one …

A Video Blog – Our Week November 2015

I am naturally beginning to take more videos of my girls. It’s a really good way to capture a moment or a memory. Technology makes storing these moments so easy too. I honestly believe that if I didn’t have my blog then I wouldn’t have half as many photos and video that I do of their childhood. Last week, Saturday …

“The attention just one little human needs is incredible”

This weekend is the usual first weekend of the month when P1 and P2 head back to Essex to spend time with my Mum. I’ve felt mixed emotions surrounding these weekends. The girls enjoy themselves and it gives us space but it hasn’t ever really made life easier. P3 loves to cause enough fuss and demand enough attention to make …

#BEDN – 4 – Photography

It’s really crazy to think how far photography has come, especially very recently. From when I was a child there are plenty of very blurry, low lighting and low quality images of me. The photos are mainly of big events or birthdays taken on a camera that got dusted off for these momentous occasions. Go from back then to nearly …

#BEDN – 2 – Love Mondays

I think Monday has to be one of my favourite days of the week at the moment. Monday’s used to be one of the worst, it was either back to school for me and then it was back to work after a weekend but since being a stay at home mum to a school goer, Monday’s are about getting a …

“I think the duty I hate the most is having to be nurse”

Parenting is a mixture of every job under the sun. It’s about being a chef, a taxi, a teacher, an actor, a body guard, a cleaner, a friend and an enemy. But I think the duty I hate the most is having to be nurse. It feels like we are currently in a never ending cycle of illness. Those germs …

A Video Blog – My Second Birth Story

I am really enjoying making videos for my YouTube channel and although I am still a very, very tiny fish in the ocean YouTube, I still feel quite warm and fussy that my channel is getting views. I have a few videos over there that I haven’t yet shared here, like my Facts & Favourites vlog where I let you …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 13 Months

To my Princess 3, You still look so much like a baby to me yet your personality is growing older by the day. You’re 13 months and there’s no hiding you are far from that tiny little newborn you once were. Since your birthday you have taken more and more steps. You’ll nearly walk the whole length way of our …
