She’s Crawling

P3 is crawling. Well not particularly getting from A to B but she’s certainly getting there. This development has happened earlier than both her sisters. P1 crawled for the first time around her birthday and P2 crawled at 9 months 2 days old. P3 is 8 months 2 weeks old. I don’t remember the ins and outs of P1s crawling …

“I’m trying to enjoy every inch of sun”

Life seems busier than ever at the moment. Probably because I’m trying to enjoy every inch of sun that shines in the sky this year and our little home houses three active monsters so I’ve sort of been push to go outside whether it’s across the road, out in the access way or to the park. Park being the popular …

Letter To My Princess 2 – 2 Years 4 Months

To my Princess 2, This past month has seen you really change. You now seem like a little girl rather than a toddler. You are walking more and more. I wonder if we really need a double buggy half the time. You walk to playgroup, to Gymboree and to the park. It’s making life so simple. You’re speech is just …

My Mum, In The Eyes Of A 2 and 6 Year Old

There’s a new thing I’ve seen going around Facebook lately. You are asked to question your child without prior warning and without prompting them. After receiving my not so fantastic Mother’s Day card where she couldn’t answer the question “what makes mummy laugh”, I thought this would be a really fun thing to do with P1. Here’s our answers: 1. …

“Her face was tear stained and she held my hand tightly”

P1 has once again been awful at bedtime and even managed to fall out of her bed, which is over 4ft tall, an hour after being put to bed and after numerous times of telling her to lay down and go to sleep. I struggled to find sympathy for her. That sounds so mean but she didn’t cry and there …

My Sunday Photo – 31/05/2015

I missed last weeks my Sunday photo as we were having far too much fun at a family wedding. Last Sunday was also my Grandad’s 84th birthday. Seeing as this Sunday will be spent doing a food shop and hopefully out to the park if the weather permits, I thought I would share a photo from last week that makes …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 8 Months

To my Princess 3, You have been in the world and in our lives for 8 months now. In the scheme of things that’s such a short amount of time but it doesn’t feel that way. It feels like you’ve always been a part of our lives. Admittedly, we haven’t had you weighed in quite a long time by a …

“I woke up this morning knowing how the day would pan out”

I have been in tears today for two different reasons; complete exhaustion and complete joy. I woke up this morning knowing how the day would pan out. The same as every day at the moment with P1 and P2. There would be arguments, there would be tears, there would be fights between them and the battle would continue strong as …

A Wedding & Longleat Safari

I went a little bit off duty Sunday and Monday. With extreme lack of signal over in Wiltshire and it being a bank holiday there was absolutely no need to keep checking my emails and the only reason I did touch my phone was to check the time or take a photo. That was also where my off duties were …

“Playgroup was absolutely heaving with new people today”

It’s been an odd day that seemed to start really early even though it actually didn’t. Hubby was up two hours before he usually is, the time I normally get up with P3, to pick his Auntie up from the airport with my MiL. I was left to watch four kiddies, get them dressed and give breakfast. Everybody was safely …

Teething Troubles

I find it a struggle to remember the baby days for both P1 and P2. Despite the fact I’m sort of reliving everything now with P3 I still cannot bring back the memories very easily. There’s something in particular that I’ve tried to remember because it feels so different this time round. Teething. I’m guessing that because it wasn’t such …

Siblings May 2015

I asked P1 today what she thought about being a sister and her answer was just one word, fun! I realised that through all the problems we’ve been having with them individually, as sister’s they do spend a lot of time laughing. I want the three of them to be absolute best friends but right at the moment P1 and …

Parenting Three – 7 Months In

We are nearly 8 months in from becoming a family of five. Having three children has changed our family dynamics and the way we live quite drastically. It came as a bit of a shock when I first found out that we were expecting number three and it took me a while to really come to terms with it. We’d …

“Along trotted this small, scruffy looking dog. In a preschool”

P2 has been on the waiting list for a preschool since January. I’ve soon come to realise that they are extremely sort after in this area and it’s clear that she probably won’t get a place until she’s nearer 3 years old. We decided to add her to a couple of the waiting lists. Not because we’re impatient but purely …

A Visit From The Tooth Fairy

P1 came home from school yesterday after being at her after school club. It was just after 6pm. Wednesdays are her longest days and sometimes I wonder how she physically copes with them but she enjoys it so much because her best friend goes. She got home and we gave her the brand new Barbie she has the task of …
