Makeup On Children

I caught P1 using a pen to draw on her eyelids and a highlighter over her face. Quite tasteful colours actually. She told me it was her makeup. She must watch me putting my makeup on all the time and it never occurred to me that she would want to do the same. But of course she would, she’s a …

That First Giggle

I cannot believe it. For weeks I’ve been trying to get P2 to laugh. Pulling so many faces, getting my voice to places I never knew it could reach and generally being rather silly – now they weren’t failures, she smiles at me constantly. I sneezed. She giggled. Yup, an accidental sneeze as I was clearing up the biggest, leakiest …

She Just Loves Her Mumma!

I love the closeness I get from co-sleeping with P2. But in all honesty I haven’t co-slept in ages!! Last night, I was pretty much forced to co-sleep. P2 didn’t fall asleep until 11pm. She was put in her Moses as normal. She then woke up at 12:15!!!!!!!!! I fed her, then when she was fast asleep, I put her …

Tonight

Tonight, I’ve had a little too much to drink. Tonight, I’m on cold nine. Tonight, I have the whole future with my OH ahead of me. Tonight, I’m wearing my beautiful white dress. Tonight, I have the biggest grin on my face. Tonight, I have a wedding ring on my finger. Tonight, I’m watching my two beautiful girls in their …

233 Days Left AND Counting

I’ve currently had 160 days of my maternity leave. It seems like forever since I was at work. I’m very nervous about returning. We’ve decided to extend my maternity leave to the full entitlement, which makes my return date 2nd January. That makes me a little more relaxed but so much has changed since I was there. I feel like …

Absent Mother

I was apart from P2 for the longest time today. I’d decided I deserved a break… I didn’t exactly need one, I just fancied one. She was without me for 4hours!!! It was slightly stressful to start with. My OH was very nervous and reluctant to leave her with my parents. But I persuaded him and we went off the …

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 …

Blast That Baby Fat

P2 is now three months old and I think it’s about time that I start trying to get my body back to it’s pre pregnancy, ironing board state. I’m breast feeding and I’m happy with my weight. I just want to tone up a bit more and maybe get rid of my flubby tummy. So yesterday I took part in …

To My Princesses – Letter 7

To my Princesses, So today, now P2 is beyond three months I’m going to write monthly letters to each of you separately. I thought this way it will be more personal for the both of you – P1 on the 24th of each month and P2 on the 6th. So this letter is my last joint letter to you both. …

Green Pomelo – Minky Baby Pink Cloth Nappy Review

So there’s a positive line on the pregnancy test. You’re having a baby! Now it’s time to start getting excited and buying lots of bits for your new arrival. I bet the majority of you naturally thought about all the nappies you’d have to stock up on. The first ever disposable nappy was invented in 1948. A baby will use …

I’m Missing Out On Things

Look at the frown on that face!! P2 has become more reluctant to fall asleep in her bouncer or car seat. In fact she’s quite reluctant to fall asleep anywhere during the day. And when she eventually does, it’s for a quick half hour power nap… and that’s if we’re lucky! I don’t know if this is an age thing?! …

Touch Me

It’s so crazy how grown up P2 is becoming and so fast she’s doing it! In the past few days she’s really begun to touch things, hold things and bite things – uh oh! Don’t worry, she isn’t suffocating herself… Yesterday, she was absolutely fascinated by my OHs top. Staring intensely at it, trying to reach forwards to grab it. …

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 …

I Didn’t Invite You Aunt Flow?!

Aunt Flow decided to pay a visit. I’m not overly impressed at her unwelcome visits. This is the second visit I’ve had since P2s birth (not counting the 6 weeks I bled continuously). Don’t get me wrong a visit from AF means that I’m not pregnant and have working ovaries and womb – fantastic. However, I’m breastfeeding, exclusively so why …
