Mums Birthday Meal Ruined

We had an awful evening. It was my Mums birthday meal, her birthday is actually today but we are going away for the weekend. We went to test the food at the place we want for our reception venue. That part was fine. Something was completely wrong with P2, I tried everything… Boobie, nappy changing, covering/uncovering blankets, rocking, swinging, carrying, …

Building Up A Supply

I’ve been quite relaxed about expressing my breast milk. But now P2 is 16 weeks old I know that the weaning stage is right around the corner. My OH and I have agreed to wait until she’s at least 6 months before she starts on baby rice. Even though I weaned P1 at 4months. I read on the back of …

Opposites Attract

It’s been a very long day today. P1 started our day with an argument over food and then over wearing tights. My Mum had booked the day off to spend with us so having it start so dramatically was a little frustrating!! P2 had the horrible visit to the nurses room to be jabbed in the thighs. This time one …

Bank Holiday Fair

We always get to do something different when visiting my MiL. Always exciting. Today’s adventures was a summer fair. It was not what we expected. We thought it would be in a school field, few stalls and maybe a bouncy castle. But nope, there was a dog show, loads of stalls and several bouncy castles and inflatable stand. We enjoyed …

Chinese Meal

It was my Mums friend, now my friend too… I hope… Engagement party tonight. I felt a bit nervous about going as it was at a Chinese restaurant. I hate Chinese, the food not the people. It’s mainly because I’m such a fussy eater. I hate to try new things. Such a child. Well, we went along and had a …

Swans Are Swimming

I woke up today feeling fantastic. Ok I’m still bunged up and can barely hear anything but I’m loads better. I managed to stay at my Grandad’s meal for about 15minutes before I got my OH to take me home. Today, we’ve been to watch P1 have her swimming lesson. Although she’s been in the same group for ages I …

Happy 82nd Birthday!

My Grandad is 82 today! He’ll never read this because he’s a typical old man and doesn’t have the Internet. My Grandad is truly the most amazing man on this earth. Sorry to my OH. He’s always been there for me, through thick and thin. I love you Grandad! And Happy Birthday.

Illness To Rein Again

I think due to the recent lack of sleep I’ve been experiencing my immune system is well and truly down and has let in another stinking cold! I’m bunged up to the extent it actually make me sick. My head feels like it’s going to explode at any minute and my throat feels like I’ve been downing fire sticks!! Ouch! …

Running On … Zilch

I don’t think I’ve ever had such a bad nights sleep. It was seriously dreadful. I was disturbed by every member of my little family; My OH, P1 and of course P2! P1 came home from my Grandparents asleep so we put her straight to bed as it was her bedtime anyway. P2 didn’t go to sleep until 11pm. My …

Baby Yoga

I hate Mother (Parent) and Baby Groups… As in I feel so uncomfortable about them not that there’s anything actually wrong with the groups. I always feel like people are watching me and judging me because I am a young Mum. I felt slightly out of place at the Breast Feeding group and thought I was definitely more suited to …

Co-Sleeping In The News

My Twitter and Facebook have gone absolutely crazy about co-sleeping. The news has come out with yet another report about it. I feel quite angry about it all – there’s so many different views on co-sleeping and parenting that it’s hard to know what you’re meant to do with your baby. I co-sleep. Not all the time, but more often than not. …

Sunday Specials

P1 seems to have lost all social skills today. The amount of times she’s been on the naughty step! We’ve had a day at the MiLs. It’s always nice going there because there’s so many toys for P1 to play with that she can’t physically get bored. Plus it’s been quite decent weather so she’s spent a lot of her …

Sweet Dreams

((Quick reminder that I am on Twitter and also on Facebook so getting following/liking)) Since having P2 I’ve posted about how she only poops every few days. Well today was that day. When she has her clear out it’s always quite a mess. When wearing disposables it would leak out of her nappy in all directions, onto her vest and …
