Getting Through with Two Under Two


My eldest will be two May which means my time of parenting two under two is coming to an end.  It’s been an epic two years of tears, tantrums, laughs and memories.  Not all of the tears and tantrums were from the kids either!  I often wonder how I’ve gotten through the last two years alive, but I did and…

Reflections as my Littlest Turns One


I’m struggling to believe that a whole year has passed since the littlest of my girls was born.  This time last year I was waddling around waiting, not so patiently to be induced.  Excited to meet our second born and even more excited not to be pregnant, after carrying my first and second for what was very nearly eighteen months straight.…

Making the Most of Life Around Shift Work


Since Hub’s changed his job two years ago, as a family we’ve had to get used to living life around his shift patterns.  Previously he worked Monday to Friday.  They were long hours and he brought a lot of work home, but it was Monday to Friday nonetheless.  He was always here during the night and our weekends were guaranteed downtime from the daily grind.…

I’m not the Mother I Thought I’d be.


Even before I was pregnant I had a clear idea of who I would be as a mother.  My children would listen to me, they wouldn’t throw tantrums and we would enjoy playing all day.  I also didn’t feel like I would need to work, being a SAHM would be enough.  I had the rest of my life planned out. After…

Term Wellies Review


I believe that getting my children outside into the fresh air is so important.  Letting them explore our local countryside, splash in puddles and squelch in mud is a huge learning process, not to mention great fun.  Recently we were given the chance for Baby J to try out some fabulous Term wellington boots, given that we spend so much…

From SAHM to Working Mum: Acceptance and Changes


As the first birthday of my second baby draws near I’ve found myself re-evaluating our family situation.  Little E’s birthday will also mark the second anniversary of me giving up my business to become a SAHM.  A dream I’d had for years.

Lunchtime with Ella’s Kitchen


A few weeks ago we were sent a range of Ella’s Kitchen snacks for my girls to try out.  They went down an absolute storm, so when we were asked to try out their range of dinners I just couldn’t turn them down! We were sent a selection of their 7+ months pouches, at just under 10 months they were perfect…

Dear Diary: Accepting I’ll Never have Another Baby.


The littlest of my babies will be one in April.  She’s hitting milestones left right and centre as she changes from baby to toddler.  She’s eating solid foods and crawling along the floor trying to keep up with her big sister.  Long gone is the tiny baby we bought home from hospital. A huge part of me is glad that…
