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 …

Siblings April 2015

This month has seen a significant change in my set of sisters. Their youngest sister is now sitting, still slightly wobbly, but she’s sitting and that’s what counts. It has meant that P3 is now slightly more interesting to P2 who hasn’t really taken true notice of her until now, suddenly she wants to play with her baby sister rather than …

Our Sunshine Afternoon in the Easter Holidays

This morning, like most of our recent mornings, I opened the blinds to clear blue sky and sunshine. Last year we had a pretty hot summer but I was unable to enjoy it properly because I was heavily pregnant and sweating like a pig. Now P3 is here I’m certain to enjoy it. Getting out in the sun doesn’t have …

P2 thinks her dummies are with the Easter Bunny.

I don’t remember the events surrounding when P1 stopped using a dummy and ultimately that’s the main reason that I have this blog and wish I’d known about blogging a long time ago. P2 has used a dummy from a baby. It’s been her comfort, my noise stopper and it’s been something she’s depended on in so many situations. When …

My Baby No Longer Loves Me

Under all the activities and excitement we’ve had the past few days, P3 has had a week where she’s been quite under the weather. The poor little mite has dealt with a lot in her little life already and when this cold hit her, it really hit hard. All week I’ve been wiping snot from her nose, changing some nasty …

Letter to my Princess 2 – 2 Years 2 Months

To my Princess 2, It feels like such a long time ago that it was your birthday. You have been two for two months now! We’ve just had the most amazing Easter together and you’ve eaten far too many chocolate eggs and the little face you pull when you know you shouldn’t have unwrapped the lump of chocolate in your …

Celebrating His 25th Birthday & Easter with Balloon Time

A few months ago we were asked to be part of the Celebration Club for Balloon Time. The time scaled fitted perfectly with my hubby’s 25th birthday so naturally I thought this was a great excuse to throw a party for him. Hubby does so much for us as a family and I really wanted to show him just how …

Justin & Friends – Mr Tumble’s Circus at Wembley Arena London

Yesterday, we gave P3 to my MiL and bundled the other two in the car for the hour and a half drive to Wembley. We were off to see CBeebies Live present Mr Tumble’s Circus. We’d discussed the show for a whole week and had really hyped it up, even in the car I was keeping them all excited so …

Why I Admire My Eldest Daughter

I’m taking part in the April Ultimate Blogging Challenge and today’s prompt was to write about who I admire and why. I had planned to write about my Grandad because my admiration for him is fantastic. But I’ve decided to write about my eldest daughter. I’m still debating whether or not that’s a bit strange. P1 is just over 6 …

“I’ve been my daughters comfort when she’s feeling her worst”

I told myself last night that I had certain jobs to do today. Our easter holiday break begins this Thursday and quite frankly our house is a pig sty! Everyone, except me typically, have come down with colds and I’ve slowly watched the mess creep on top of me. I’ve put caring for the kids and hubby above the cleaning, …

Co-Sleeping With My Third Baby

As a parent, we want what is best for our children. Of course we do. How we parent is largely influenced by our own upbringings and more nowadays by the internet. We have the input of every medically-trained professional under the sun telling us what is right and what is wrong. Ultimately, as a parent we know our children more …

Letter to my Princess 3 – 6 Months

To my Princess 3, I can’t believe you are already six months and we’ve made it through half of a year of sleepless nights and poopy nappies. At six months you have rolled once, laughed twice and are sitting slightly unaided for 30 seconds. You smile at everyone. Having said that, you have definitely started to feel some separation anxiety …

“We’ve just had a four day weekend”

I am the type of person that is quite content with lazying around the house. After a while it does start to feel like you’re in jail, sharing your cell with screeching children, which is why I now make the effort to attend two play groups a week with P2 and P3. I met a lovely lady well over a …

Letter To My Princess 1 – 6 Years 3 Months

To my Princess 1, You are now 6 years and 3 months old. I’ve not been writing as often to you as I feel your progress is a bit slower now you are older. Since turning 6 you’ve started your Early Literacy Support sessions at school. I’ve really seen your writing improve. I didn’t think you were struggling but after …
