Sleeplessness, Dancing and Buckets of Rain


Today has been a miserable day.  Hubs headed back to work after a few days off, leaving me to solo-parent two under two.  The rain has been torrential and the littlest of my brood refused to nap, not even a wink! Now usually I rock parenting two so young. I’m no expert and far from perfect, but over the past…

A Potty Training Dilemma


The eldest of my girls will soon be two and so the question of when to officially start potty training keeps popping into my mind.  Up until now we have had successful use of the potty, but by no means are we fully trained.

Pusheen from GUND UK Review


We’ve all had a giggle at Pusheen the cat as she pops up on our social media, often dressed to impress and eating something yummy.  I regularly use the Pusheen ‘stickers’ on Facebook, just to exaggerate my mood.  So when we were asked to review the Pusheen soft toy range from GUND UK, I couldn’t wait to show my girls…

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.…

Judgement


We live in a world where people are too quick to judge.  As individuals, we work hard to make ourselves and our families happy.  We make decisions that will hopefully be a benefit to us.  Decisions that we feel are right and decisions that we have often turned over in our minds for a very long time before acting on them.…

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.

Love the Life You Live


It’s human nature to look at a perfect Instagram feed and immediately assume that person’s life is better than your own.  Its part of our make up to compare what we have, to the person who seems to have it all.  It’s estimated that the average person spends one hour and forty minutes browsing their social media pages each day.  How much of this…

A New Year and a New Start?


I’m not a big believer in New Year’s resolutions.  I think if i’m going to make a change I should just do it.  No preparing myself for it, just biting the bullet and going for it. However, as 2017 is fast approaching I can’t shake the niggling feeling that something has to give.  The freshness of the New Year seems…
