“It’s like someone flicked a switch and made me motivated”

It’s Friday already which means that P1 has completed her first week back to school and we’ve completed our first week back in a slight routine. This week has really been different. It’s like someone flicked a switch and made me motivated to move instead of lazing on the sofa. I’m still struggling to get up early, physically getting up …

Back To School After The Christmas Holidays

I can’t quite figure out if the Christmas holidays went quickly or slowly. With the household being poorly pretty much the majority of the holidays, the days seemed to roll into one and it was over within a blink of the eye. On the other hand, it seems like forever since it was Christmas. I want to be more organised …

To My Princess 2 – 1 Year 11 Months

To my Princess 2, We had a magical Christmas. It was the first one you understood and were able to enjoy. You was so well behaved on P1s birthday and didn’t get upset about her opening presents when you couldn’t then on Christmas Day you opened and appreciated each present. It was lovely to watch. I can’t believe you’ll be …

“P2s tantrums are beyond bearable”

The girls have swapped roles. P1 and P2 that is. I’ve wrote many posts about how naughty P1 is and how I don’t know what to do, and generally P2 has always been happy and well behaved. This past week or so we’ve seen some huge, horrible changes in P2. P2s tantrums are beyond bearable. She does the throwing on …

“I’d been imprisoned in my own home for 8 days!”

It had been 8 whole days since I last ventured outside the house. Hubby had been for food shopping or to take P2 to the doctors but not me, I’d been imprisoned in my own home for 8 days! At first it was quite nice to just chill out in our pjs. But the day we found out the car …

Christmas 2014

I sort of took a bit of an unexpected blogging break over Christmas. It wasn’t the plan and I wanted to blog but thanks to the newest update of the wordpress app, I’m unable to add featured images or any images without the app crashing. I wasn’t about to compromise on quality for the sake of a few posts so …

To My Princess 3 – 3 Months

To my Princess 3, It’s crazy that three months have now passed since you entered the world so dramatically. It’s hard to imagine my life without you. I’ve seen a real change in you the past month. You are exactly like a real baby now. So alert and awake! You are completely obsessed with your hands and fingers. Sometimes you …

To My Princess 1 – 6 Years

To my Princess 1, I can’t believe where all these years are disappearing to. I have to admit it does feel like such a long time ago that you were that tiny premature baby fighting for life. You keep asking me if by being six it’ll mean you’ll be big as in tall. I have to keep reminding you that …

Christmas Party 2014

Every year my MiL holds a little gathering for all the family. I remember the first party I went to. I had felt super nervous as it was the first time I was going to meet hubby’s family. They all live pretty far apart so having a full family gathering is quite spaced. The first year I was pregnant with …

“My breastfeeding experiences are over”

It’s been over two weeks since we breastfed. Just under two weeks since I last expressed milk. It’s gone. My milk is gone and therefore my breastfeeding experiences are over. I didn’t shed any tears about stopping. Deep down I knew this was the right choice. My body is returning to normal. A heavier, chubbier normal but still normal. My …

“She revealed to us that she already knew what she was getting”

On Thursday we made the brave decision of taking a trip to Toys R Us. Exactly a week before Christmas I expected the place to be crammed with people and low on stock. I was wrong. Ok, granted it was busy but we were able to wander around at our leisure with P2 running about like an excited mess and P3 in …

“We are now 13 days since we last breastfed”

The morning after I had wrote about P3s slow weight gain I woke up at about 2am and sterilised some bottles. She’d been restless and squirming and my boobies for a while and it was upsetting me. The whole situation was upsetting. I felt completely useless. I received many helpful advice from the health professionals and from fellow blogging friends, but I …

Princess 1’s Birthday Party with My Little Pony

Every time we arrive home from one of P1s friends parties, we get bombarded with requests and ideas that P1 wants for her own party. Last year we didn’t have one, we didn’t have the funds to throw a party in a hall or playcentre and our house is certainly not big enough for it to be held here. So …

“I get such a warm fuzzy feeling when I receive gifts”

There’s certainly a trend in the blogging world right now with Christmas just two weeks away! Every where I look there’s photos of Christmas decorations, food, gift guides, Christmas jumpers and product reviews. Oh the reviews are coming in thick at the moment for me and at times I’ve felt completely overwhelmed and slightly scared I’ll lose some readership by …

“Our house has been filled with germs this weekend”

Our house has been filled with germs this weekend. Hubby has had a cough for a while now but Friday saw P2s temperature rise and her cheeks were bright red. She was due to spend the day with her Grandparents which had to be cancelled, however P1 went for a rescheduled sleepover instead. On Saturday, I woke with a snotty …
