As promised, here is my “from bump to birth” post. It might get a little long winded, but I’ll put lots of photos in to break it up 😀 It all began back in April 2015. We weren’t actively trying for a baby, but we also weren’t stopping it – if it happened, it happened… Continue reading From Bump to Birth
Or something like that.. Today we had a pre-birthday celebration for William at home. We chose today as it meant that we wouldn’t have to rush around school tomorrow, and other family members would also be able to join us. It was a nice casual day with family coming and going. As the hostess, I… Continue reading The Hostess with the Mostess!
I still remember Lily’s first day of primary school. We were all super excited about it, and like every other parent we spammed social media with pictures of Lily in her new uniform and big smiles. She didn’t show any fear or worry, quite the opposite in fact! We weren’t getting out of the door… Continue reading Lily’s First Day of School 2015.
It’s a fascinating experience to watch your baby grow and learn new skills. I couldn’t wait for William to start walking on his own, mainly because it killed my back hunching over and holding his hands whilst he walked, (selfish, I know.) People would say to me “Oh you won’t be wishing he could walk by… Continue reading The first tumble of many to come…
Apart from Saturdays, (because, you know…it’s the weekend, and even if you have a really busy day, you still have Sunday to enjoy doing naff all!) my next favourite day is a Tuesday. But only if I’m organised about it! And do you know why? Because Lily and I have created a Tuesday Routine. A… Continue reading Why I like Tuesdays.
I am not known for my organisation skills; more so the lack of. You can guarantee I will leave the house without something (luckily, I’ve always remembered the kids! phew!) Sometimes it’s my phone, or my purse, or forgetting to refill the baby bag. (don’t forget to do that…no nappies or snacks can make for a… Continue reading Birthday?! I’m not ready!
Since starting this blog I’ve had a little voice in the back of my head, niggling away saying “You haven’t explained yourself well enough as to why you’ve created it!” For me, is the answer. I want to be able to look back on the lives of my children, and us a family and relive the little moments that might… Continue reading This is for me.
As a parent, that is what we are first and foremost. The children come first, end of. But every now and then we are allowed to be our former selves (pre-kids) and have a few hours of just you. No nappy changes, no dinners to cook, no bathtimes, no housework; just you. You’re finally able… Continue reading Off-the-clock
It’s time. When your baby first enters the world the last thing you’re thinking of is needing to baby proof the house. You know, quite obviously your 1 day old baby isn’t going to grab the scissors you left on the table, or touch the hot oven rings, or hide the TV remotes in the cat basket, or… Continue reading It’s time to baby-proof the house…
When William was a few months old, he used to settle on daddy with no trouble. A year on, this is no longer the case. We have a mummy’s boy through and through now, much to daddys annoyance and frustration (and at times, mine!) I love my boy dearly, but what I wouldn’t give to… Continue reading A Mummy’s Boy.
