Growing up I always knew I wanted to have children, but when I visualised those children they were always girls. I always saw myself as a girl mum. I pictured frilly dresses, Barbie houses, pink bedrooms and dolly prams. When I was pregnant with Theo and found out he was, in fact, a boy I… Continue reading Oh Boy..
Just realised today (Friday) that it’s world breastfeeding week, I’m always late to the party! Every time I’ve popped a picture on instagram of breastfeeding I always get a few questions so I thought I’d do a little post about my story. I breastfed Theo until he was 11 months old, when he decided that… Continue reading On the boob..
I missed out on sharing quite a lot while I was pregnant. Its not that I didn’t want to, it’s just that I think sometimes when things are really hard, they are easier to talk about retrospectively. In May 2017 I found out we were expecting our second baby. I felt every emotion you can… Continue reading HG and Me
Well it’s been a long time since I’ve written anything down and I really miss it, as this is a bit of an outlet for me. I’m sure I get more out of writing these than anyone who reads them but thought I would do a little series of blogs to catch up on what… Continue reading Noah is here..
If anyone out there has a pre-schooler, they'll understand about the endless questions. I hear the word 'why' about a thousand times a day! 'Why do I have to eat?', 'Why is the sky blue?', 'Why do birds have nests?' It's never ending! We were kindly sent this beautiful book by Boolino and we love… Continue reading ‘My First Encyclopaedia of Why’ Review
Tonight I put a three year old to bed for the last time. I can't believe how fast time has gone! It feels like the blink of an eye since I put a two year old to bed for the last time. I remember so clearly doing this last year - your little room, your… Continue reading Goodbye Three…
I'm always telling Theo not to tell lies, to my knowledge he has never lied to me (either he's REALLY good at it or he hasn't figured out how yet). Mr M and I were discussing what to do if he ever tells a lie, we're planning on going down the 'we'll be crosser at… Continue reading Little Lies..
A few nights ago, I went along to the nursery school that Theo will be starting in September. As I sat there (on an incredibly tiny chair) I couldn't quite believe that this time was coming already. That in September I'll have to send him off every day and he'll do things and see things… Continue reading Slow down..
A few nights ago when I was putting Theo to bed, we were going through our usual bedtime ritual which includes teeth brushing. He was there on his little stool brushing away and I thought I'd do my teeth too. I was merrily brushing at the mirror and suddenly I noticed that he was copying… Continue reading Monkey see, monkey do..
You don't mind when I've not got my makeup on or my hair done... you always think I'm pretty. You don't mind when I kiss you before I've brushed my teeth... you always ask for another. You don't mind when I'm so tired that I can't get up... you lie beside me. You don't mind… Continue reading You don’t mind..
