Bloods Tests For My Four Year Old

After a really bad night with P2, I was up early and down the hospital for 8:40am. I had to put P1 through having blood tests. She used to always have blood tests when she was a baby. But the last time she had anything like this was her jabs or her MRI (I can’t remember which was last). For …

Sorry, One Of Those 4am Mum Moments

Well the birds are tweeting, I don’t think I’ve ever heard birds in this house?!, and I’ve just been woken up by P2. So?! What makes this unusual, special even, is that P2 went to sleep early last night. My OH went to the gym, P1 was in bed and my parents also went to bed early. Leaving just P2 …

Pit Of My Stomach

I had a really horrible Mummy moment at 4am this morning. That really sick feeling something’s wrong. My precious baby girl was still asleep. This probably wouldn’t have worried me as she used to wake between 3-4am. But for the past few days she’s had a feed somewhere between 1-2am. I jumped up, not even knowing what the time was …

May Bank Holiday Fun In The Sun

We’ve had a lovely bank holiday Monday with my MiL! I even experienced my first half pint of alcohol (cider to be precise) since… Well about a year. I decided, half wouldn’t hurt especially as I’d just fed pher!! It’s not like I’m some sort of breastfeeding alcoholic. Although there is a part of me that is scared I’ll harm …

What A State

It’s been a busy day. And a hot day! I must have looked a right idiot walking through town – I was wearing a black vest top, pink jeans and my black knitted winter boots!!! My pumps have basically fallen apart and my toenails are currently fashioned by P1s artistic nail painting, not sandal/flip flop friendly. P2 and me had …

How Does It End Up Like This?

Tuesday’s and Thursday’s used to be my relaxing days. When I was pregnant; they’d be my days to sleep and spud about in my Jammies. Watching countless episodes of CSI. I could probably still do that, P2 is quite flexible and enjoys chatting to me in bed. Our snuggle times. But living with parents means I’ve got to keep on …

1AM Mummy Moment

I suddenly woke and ran to P2s cot. She’s in there, has been since 10:30pm, it’s now 1:35am and i don’t normally get woken by her until 3-4am, but I had a heart stopping panic… Why is she so quiet? I’m so silly. She’s sound asleep. Quite happy. I’m not! I miss her dreadfully being by my side. This was …

Co-Sleeping To CotBed

We put P2s cotbed up the day we moved back to my parents house. This was partly because we thought we would be having a premature baby but mainly because it was easier to get all furniture we needed put up before “stuff” took over the bedroom. The cot was there acting as a dumping ground for three months before …

Hello Old Lady

P2 is growing old before her time. Surely at some point in evolution our heads would become adapted to laying down during the first few months of our lives and prevent us from getting a bald patch at the back of our heads!! Surely… P1 suffered from baldness too. Her poor hair rubbed off literally. Now our gorgeous P2 is …

Challenge Day#10

Absolutely fantastic day… Hadn’t raised my voice at all right up until 7pm when I noticed some lovely art all up my mothers lounge wall… Her cream wallpaper. Naughty step was done. And P1 was made to clean the drawings off by herself. Which she did with a massive grin on her face!!!!!! Why oh why can’t she just behave! …
