“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 …

Letter To My Princess 2 – 2 Years 3 Months

To my Princess 2, I just can’t believe that you are 27 months already. In the scheme of things that is such a short amount of time yet it feels like you’ve been in our world for a lot longer. I cant believe how well you are progressing with your personality. You are such a cheeky little girl and you …

How Does Your Baby Self Settle?

At two years old, P2 is still waking in the night demanding milk on average twice a night. We’ve begun the “weaning” as such by reducing her intake during the day. She’s now limited to a cup in the mornings, not a bottle, and one 9oz bottle at night. I’m confident that she’s getting enough calcium as she’s having plenty …

I’m Going to BritMums Live 2015

I blogged about my sponsor for BritMums Live this year being Fisher-Price, that can be viewed here, and now I wanted to join in with the BritMums linky as I’m completely awful with remembering faces and names, I’ll usually know who you are by your child rather than the actual blogger themselves. Plus, I’m super shy so want to prewarn …

Letter to my Princess 3 – 7 Months

To my Princess 3, 7 months means that we are now in the lead up to your 1st birthday and that’s just crazy. The newborn days are behind us now which makes me super emotional. You are our very last baby and seeing these months quickly zooming past and you growing so quickly is sad but in a happy way. …

Toddler Night Terrors

If you are a regular reader you’ll know that P2 has never been very good with sleep. Right from the very beginning up until recently she has woke on average 3 times a night but since turning two things certainly looked on the up. She had been sleeping through more often than not, if she did wake it would be …

5 Tips for Making the Most of Your Money

I have never been good with money. In fact I’ve been quite disastrous. I was in debt when I met my Hubby. I had car finance, missed phone bills and a credit card. Over the past three years of being with Hubby I’ve learnt a lot about money. Just by watching him I’ve learnt so much, listening to his many …

Bedtime – Winter vs Spring

It’s 9:30pm and I’m tucked up in bed. I’m exhausted and have had enough. For nearly four weeks, the clever ones will realise this was the clocks going forward, my evenings have been sucked away into the oblivion. Rewind a week before the clocks and I had finally gained a child free moment of the day to blog, to watch …

Watching My Daughters Grow

Quite obviously the hot topic this week has been about the School Admissions and quite rightly so but for me, all I keep thinking every time I look at my three daughters is just how fast the time is going. Their childhood is swiftly passing us by. This week has seen a few changes that I’ve seen in their behaviours …
