“I’m so nervous about P1 having the growth hormone test”

Last year, P1 had some blood tests and an X-ray to check her growth. We’ve been a little concerned and so was the paediatrician but considering I’m rather small (4ft 8in) we weren’t too worried about the results. Last Friday, we finally had the results back – she’s normal. Well, there’s nothing wrong with her bones anyway. The next step …

“The house looks like Primark at Christmas!”

It’s been a week since the sickness bug started and about 5 days since it officially ended for me but I’m still not feeling 100% normal. It’s the school half term and we’ve done nothing remotely exciting which I feel totally guilty about. My blog has taken a bit of a side seat during our recovery process and the house …

“Her behaviour is beyond anything we’ve ever had to deal with”

I’m struggling to remember the last time that I went a whole day or even half a day without having to tell P1 off for something or argue with her. Life seems to be a constant battle – parents against child. Her behaviour is beyond anything we’ve ever had to deal with before. She’s become really rude and I’m really …

Happy 1st Birthday Princess 2

I blinked and a whole year whizzed past. Yup, P2 is a whole year, 12 months, 365 days, 52 weeks old. I know it’s crazy!! I apologise in advance. It’s a long one and a cuppa tea and biscuit may be needed… If you’re not too squeamish that it. I realised that last year I failed to write my labour …

“I’m walking 6.4miles a day”

P1 started her new school today. I had the alarm set for 6:30 but didn’t manage to actually get out of bed until 7. It took about half an hour to walk 1.6miles – exactly what good old Google said.I left P2 at home with hubby and P1 was allowed to use the pushchair. I know that so many people …

We said goodbye to P1 walking the whole journey. Today we said goodbye to being home by 9am. We said goodbye to our afternoons, leaving at 2:35 and being …

“This beautiful little lady has clearly forgotten how to stay asleep!”

I seem to always jinx myself when it comes down to progress with P2. I posted earlier in the week about finally getting some decent nights of sleep. Clearly that was to prepare us for the past two nights!!This beautiful little lady has clearly forgotten how to stay asleep! For two nights I’ve seen every single hour of the night …

“The Dr thinks she may have something called Dyspraxia”

We finally had an appointment to see a professional of some sort regarding P1s hypermobility. It’s taken take nearly 5 months but today we saw a paediatrician and she was fantastic!! The Dr asked a lot of questions. I pretty much had to tell P1s life story. I went through everything that happened at the beginning of her life to …

“Since starting our new routine bedtimes have been a breeze!”

Since starting our new routine bedtimes have been a breeze! We haven’t followed the routine strictly but we start bedtime at about 6:30pm. By this time P2 is very tired as she’s still used to being sleepy nearly straight after dinner. I don’t bath every day, we bath every few days now but I give P2 her milk in my …

You’ve had a few issues with school and been quite poorly. You definitely know how to cause such a worry!! You’ve started new swimming lessons and you were quite nervous but I definitely think …

“Today topped it off when the school received their Ofsted report”

We’ve put the icing on top of a cake that’s slowly been created. Sorry, this post isn’t about yummy treats, it’s about P1s education. We uprooted our family to Sevenoaks nearly 5 months ago to start a complete fresh and better life. The schools are better, the lifestyle is better and the people are nicer. If you’re a loyal reader …
