Letter To My Princess 2 – 2 Years 6 Months

To my Princess 2, Two and a half years you have been in our lives. I say it all the time but time is really flying past and it feels like just yesterday that I met my chubby little monkey for the first time. You are so different from your older sister. You’re heavier, sturdier and much more laid back. …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 10 Months

To my Princess 3, You are no longer a tiny baby watching the world go by. You’re firmly in that world, exploring and getting involved in absolutely everything. You are gaining a beautiful personality. It’s so different yet so alike to your big sisters. There’s a cheeky streak about you and I can see you’re going to cause chaos. But …

“Finally we have a preschool placement”

I have been desperate to get P2 into a nursery or preschool. She’s been on four different lists. It feels like such a long time since we put P2s name on the first nursery and preschool waiting list. This week we have finally been offered a nursery place for our beautiful 2 year old. Finally we have a preschool placement! …

“We’ve slipped back into a horrible routine”

I had hoped to be writing a post about how well P2 was doing with giving up milk. We decided about two weeks ago that we needed to cut it out completely to start with. Like an addiction. It’s how we helped her to lose her dummies that she was so addicted to last year and that “cold turkey” approached …

Siblings July 2015

When I see photos of all three of my daughters together I struggle to see similarities between them. They all have the same hair colour. The same big eyes. But they are so different. P1 is the image of me, P3 is the image of Hubby but P2 is a bit of an odd bod. She looks like Hubby more …

“Separation anxiety has consumed P2!”

Have you heard of children experiencing separation anxiety? I have but I’ve never truly experienced it until now. To be honest I think it’s been creeping upon us for a while. I first witnessed the terror myself when P2 panicked and cried because she couldn’t see me amongst the mummy’s on the playground. I had her in complete view but …

Letter To My Princess 2 – 2 Years 5 Months

To my Princess 2, You are very nearly two and half years old. Zooming towards turning three and that’s just too scary to even contemplate. You’ve had two taster sessions at a preschool. It was a decision we felt was right for you as I’ve noticed you struggle to form relationships with other children outside of your family. You cross …

“We survived the hottest day of the year!”

Yesterday, 1st July 2015, marked the hottest July day in the UK so far. Temperatures soared to 36.7C in many parts of the UK. I checked my weather app regularly and the highest we saw in Kent was 34C. A crazy, dangerous temperature but I’m pleased to announce that we survived the hottest day of the year. As I’ve said …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 9 Months

To my Princess 3, You have now officially been outside longer than you were tucked up inside my tummy. You are 9 months old. It’s crazy to think that in just a few months time we’ll be celebrating your first birthday. We’ll probably end up having a joint birthday/wedding anniversary/birthday celebration seeing as you arrived the morning after my own …

” P2 has been on a waiting list to attend a preschool”

For the past 6 months P2 has been on a waiting list to attend a preschool. This wasn’t a decision that came lightly for us. The whole point of me being a stay at home mum and quitting my job nearly two years ago was so that I could be P2s primary carer. Considering I started my working life when …

Letter To My Princess 1 – 6 Years 6 Months

To my Princess 1, I’ve been really disappointed with your behaviour lately. To the point we’ve been to see the doctors because I know this just isn’t normal behaviour for a 6 year old. We have a few next steps and I hope that you are just in a very awful stage at the moment. You’ve been so doting on …

“There’s now no need to wrap our toddler in bubble wrap”

When P3 was born P2 went from a tiny toddler snuggled in my arms to this huge giant of a child. Since turning two she’s changed so much that it’s really scaring me. She’s no longer a baby in any sense and has become such a grown up and independent little sausage. The things she says are just immensely amusing. …

Your Digital Footprints

To P1, P2 and P3, I’ve just got back from BritMums Live 2015 and although the sessions I attended were great there’s one specific one that has left a bit of an imprint in my thoughts. It was about Your Child’s Digital Footprint. Whilst sitting in there I actually thought I was disagreeing with the speakers and some of the …

Siblings June 2015

So it turns out that the 15th has really creapt up on me. When I decided to religiously join in with this linky I wanted to have a dozen photos to look at come December that I could one day make into a canvas of some sort. As much as I love natural photos of my girls, I have come …
