To My Princess 2 – 10 Months

To My Princess 2, Double figures baby!!! You’re 10months old today. I’m in shock really, it’s going so quick and you are also developing at super rapid speed. This month you mastered crawling. After spinning around in a circle on your bum or on your tummy, overnight you just got up on hands and knees! You are picking up speed …

Letter To My Nan – 3 Months

Hi Nan, Things aren’t getting any easier. I try to talk about you every day with P1 but you know her, she just wants to talk about something else or play. I showed P2 the photo I have of you on the window seal, she stroked your face which left me emotional. I keep having the sudden realisation that she’ll …

“This weekend has been very slow and relaxed. It’s been nice”

Our weekends are always so busy. Usually travelling to Essex for swimming or seeing family. This weekend has been very slow and relaxed. It’s been nice. It started with P1 having a sleepover round her Great-Grandad’s house Friday-Saturday evening. So Friday evening I did the house cleanup whilst hubby was out with his friend. Saturday, I was up really early …

“I’ve never had a member of the family that has Alzheimer’s”

Something in the news has really touched me. A man seeking love after his wife is stricken with Alzheimer’s. I’m trying my hardest to understand his point of view but I’m struggling. I’ll put it bluntly. I think he’s selfish. I’ve never had a member of the family that has Alzheimer’s, so really I can’t comment, but my Grandad stood …

“I’m kicking myself for swapping the rooms around to be honest”

I don’t know how we managed to co sleep for 6 months. I’m a complete lover of co sleeping don’t get me wrong. Back when P2 was more of a potato and breastfeeding, it was easier and it actually meant we got more sleep between us! It’s been terrible the past week. I’ve not slept from fear of P2 choking …

“It’s 28 days until Christmas”

It’s 28 days until Christmas. It feels like it’s suddenly crept up on us. I cannot believe that it was nearly a year ago that we were taking our yearly “generations” photo with my Mum, P1, me and my Nan. 2011 2012We didn’t get a chance to have a generations photo with P2. Nan didn’t get a chance to have …

“I’m so glad I made the decision to go green and use cloth”

I’m an ex-disposable nappy Mummy. I used them for nearly 3 years with P1. I used them up until P2 was 3 months old. I now use cloth nappies. I’m absolutely addicted to the variety of styles and colours that I can choose from to match P2s outfits. This week she’s been poorly so I’ve been going through nappies like …

“I love onesies!”

I’ve wanted a onesie since they arrived to the fashion scenes last winter but I never got one. Mainly because I thought they wouldn’t do my size being only 4ft 8in tall! My friend A gave me one Friday. I have not stopped wearing it since that evening. They are even more comfy than pjs. No wonder it’s the main …

“I’m definitely feeling a lot calmer about Christmas”

I’m definitely feeling a lot calmer about Christmas. Yesterday, I traipsed my friend and P2 around Lakeside Shopping Centre to do my Christmas shopping. It was such a lovely day and really great to spend some time with someone outside the family. I hadn’t seen A since our wedding day so it was a good time to catch up. We …

“first ever school parents evening”

After school every single day I am faced with this scenario: Me: did you have a good day at school? P1: yes. Me: great. What did you do? What did you have for dinner? P1: I don’t know. I can’t remember. I can nearly guarantee that you all know of or have experienced this scenario. (If you haven’t I’d like …
