I know it’s often said that time goes by quickly and your kids aren’t little for long, but it takes on a whole new meaning when it’s your little ones who are doing the growing up! Yesterday, William turned two years old. It just doesn’t seem possible that 731 days have passed, and yet when… Continue reading My ‘not so little’ boy turned two!
A year ago today, Bringing up the Berney’s came to life. (Here’s my first ever post!) I set this blog up in an effort to record the lives of my children and family living. I wanted to be able to share our lives with family and friends, and have a communal place where I could share… Continue reading My Blogs First Anniversary.
2018, it’s here already. It doesn’t feel like a moment ago we were saying farewell to 2016 and celebrating going into 2017! And yet here we are… I have a lot to be thankful for in 2017, the biggest is welcoming our newest addition Rubeon to the family! We had a bit of a tough… Continue reading 2018
Last Sunday, I was extremely lucky to have been thrown a baby shower by my sisters and mum! Initially I wasn’t sure whether it was a bit rude of me to have a baby shower as I had one for William and wasn’t sure on the etiquette on if it was greedy to have another… Continue reading Baby Berney #3’s Baby Shower.
I can’t believe it! My little blog is 6 months old already! Thank you to all of you who have been supportive and reading it. As you know I started it as a way to remember various points in our family life, but it’s also becoming a bit of an emotional release for me too.… Continue reading 6 Months into Blogging!
It’s that time of year again when we celebrate and appreciate our dads, whether they’re your dad, step-dad, dad-in-law, or your partner is daddy to your little ones. Whoever they are, this is a day for them! When it comes to raising children, it’s often seen as “the norm” for the mum to… Continue reading Happy Fathers Day!
After a few tears, tummy aches and nerves of starting Beavers, Lily now has the uniform AND got invested last week! As I explained briefly before, being invested into Beavers is basically an initiation ceremony. Everyone stands in a circle, and the Leader calls forward the newcomers to stand in front of them and put… Continue reading Lily was Invested!
It’s been a long 21 weeks, but Martin and I have finally broken our silence to the world to announce that our family is expanding once again! Baby Berney #3 is due on 29th September 2017! (I hope. William was 2 weeks late, they might follow in big bro’s footsteps…) Family and close friends have… Continue reading When Four Became Five.
On Saturday, Martin and I celebrated our third anniversary of being together, and thanks to Grandma and Nanny, we got to celebrate on a date night without the kids! (Much to Lily’s disappointment that she wouldn’t be joining in.) It’s a rarity that we are ever completely child free, we can often lose one but not the other.… Continue reading Our Third Anniversary.
I had my birthday the other day, and it passed by like any other day. I actually kept forgetting it was my birthday, ha! I’ve come to realise that as you get older, and your priorities shift (e.g. becoming a parent) your birthday just isn’t as exciting as it used to be. Not… Continue reading I turned 23.
