Challenge Day#3

10:30AM – Have to raise my voice to level 3, P1 has wet herself for the third day in a row and I’m not pleased! She isn’t a baby anymore and has been toilet trained for over a year now. 12:00PM – P1 starts to walk away from the car and into the car park, luckily no cars but I …

Challenge Day#2

7:30AM – Ask P1 to get dressed using a very cheerful happy, excited level 0 voice in the hope that my happiness will have a positive reaction with her. It does the trick and she laughs happily as she goes to the toilet and lets me dress her. 7:40AM – P1 happily eats her Rice Krispies without any fuss. 8:00AM …

Challenge Day#1

After writing a post about how low I have got with P1s behaviour (roarrrrrrr) a fellow blogger introduced me to 365 Day Challenge with The Orange Rhino. This is a challenge where you have to not yell (unless when your child is running across the road etc) for 365 Days, if you break it, you go back to day zero, …

School Disappointment

3:30am – P2 is having a feed. It’s been a restless night so far. Check my emails to see we have already received P1s primary school offer. Nearly burst into tears as she’s not been offered where we applied! We viewed three schools in the area, you are meant to put three schools of choice down. We hated two out …

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome

I’ve cried tonight. It’s amazing how the human body reacts to certain things. I read a blog post tonight about a lady going through one of my biggest fears. Cot death. Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Just writing those words makes me want to cry my eyes out, hold my daughters close. I like to know I can protect them from …

New Look For LWPP

Welcome to my new, very sexy, very self hosted blog! I’d love to say I had the brains and patience to figure self hosting out by myself… I didn’t. I owe this to my OH. Who has literally spent hours doing it. I’ve still got to go through all my hundreds of photos and change the locations. I’ve done 2 …

Epidural – I May Have Offended – Sorry

I think this post will upset quite a few people but the topic has come up a lot recently, what with One Born Every Minute be on the telly again. I don’t mean to upset anyone, these are my own opinions! Epidurals. (When asked for, not in emergency cases like caesareans) I’ve always been quite open to the idea of …

DP – Imperfection

I only received the DP in my email late last night and I haven’t had any inspiration to join in some previous ones but this one I have. So I don’t care that it’s slightly late. Imperfections — in things, in people, in places — add character to life. Tell us about an imperfection that you cherish Although I truly …

New Hair

I made it. And I surprisingly didn’t feel that emotional whilst I was gone. My boobs clearly missed P2 as I felt them filling up half way through my hair being coloured. Apart from that it was quite nice to not have to lug a carseat around or worry that P1 is walking too close to the road etc. Do …

I’ve Just Got To Be Brave

Just a quick post this morning. I’m about to leave P2 for the first time since she was conceived!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That’s like a whole year ago! I’m so nervous. She’ll be in the fantastic, well experienced, loving hands of my MiL. Am I still nervous? YESSS! I don’t even know what exactly I’m nervous of. The emotions I’ll feel leaving her? …

Caesarean Awareness Month

It’s Caesarean awareness month according to the NHS Twitter account. I’m going to hold my hands right up in the air and say that I’ve always thought of planned c-sections as the easy way out – too posh to push. And emergency sections being a good thing because you don’t get the pain of pushing a baby out of your …

You Either Love It Or You Hate It

I ventured into Hobbycraft today to grab some bits to start off the girls Arts & Crafts box. What an expensive shop! P1 walked in and the first thing she said was “Wow this is amazing!” And that’s the exact same reaction that I had when I used to go with my Mum and spend many hours going down every …

I Never Imagined

Blogging has become a huge part of my life. Before I started Life With Pink Princesses I had a blog over at blogspot, over there I only posted a couple of times a week. But here, I clearly post more, this is because I love the feedback I get and the ease of connecting with other bloggers. I had my …

A Squishy Read

Just a quick review because I’m watching the Grand National. We’ve been given so many things for P2. We’ve been ultra lucky from our friends and family. We have bags and boxes full of toys ready for when P2 needs them. Yesterday, P1 found a soft book that she wanted me to read to her. So I got both girls …
