To My Princess 2 – 2 Years

To my Princess 2, I’ve been a little emotional this month as we’ve counted down the days until your 2nd birthday. These two years have gone ridiculously quick but it feels like such a long time ago that you were that podgy little baby at the hospital. You have such an amazing character. You’ve always been so hilarious in the …

To My Princess 3 – 4 Months

To my Princess 3, It seems to be flying by! I need to apologise to you. This month we’ve found out that you have a tongue tie and its left me feeling very guilty and upset that we didn’t even check. Nobody did. Even when you were struggling to gain weight! We’ve been referred to the hospital next month for …

“I want to cherish everything”

When your first baby comes along, the newborn bubble that we plop ourselves comfortably in lasts forever. There’s no rush to get out the house. The 6 week marker comes and goes. You realise you haven’t showered in three or four days, you certainly only ventured out of bed for the loo or to grab food. This was sort of …

Potty Training P2

I toilet trained P1 when she was 3 years and 3 months old. It took just two weeks for her to be completely dry during the day, and from the start of toilet training to this date P1 has never wet herself during the night. Touch wood! I was lucky, she was older and able to completely communicate with me. …

“She has a tongue-tie”

I’m 99% sure that P3 is teething. She’s suddenly become a dribbling wreck and is quite partial to a bit of finger munching… My fingers and hers. Whilst on a little session of chewing my finger I felt something familiar. A tongue-tie just like mine. Obviously, I’m no doctor but it played on my mind a bit. I’ve lived with …

“At first I thought it may be because she’s struggling”

There’s so much going on in P1s life and I find it difficult to stay on board with it all. The other two take up so much of my time that I guilty sort of forget. I forget that she’s not an average little girl. This year has already seen some changes for P1 at school. They’ve started swimming lessons …

“The first argument of the day was about some play food”

My alarm went at 7:45am. This was the third alarm for this morning and so I knew it was time to push my tired body out of bed and get ready for the school run. P2 woke up and immediately wanted a cuddle, I made sure she took off her nappy and went on the potty first. P1 however was …

“We created our first Friday Movie Night!”

There’s an enormous community that comes with being a blogger. I spend a lot of time reading other blogs via the Bloglovin’ app. I tend to follow parent bloggers because I can really relate to them. It also gives me an insight to how other people live or parent and I’m guilty of comparing. Then Molly at A Mother’s Always …

“Dear Peppa Pig, I have a bone to pick with you.”

Dear Peppa Pig, I have a bone to pick with you. I want to know when you will be returning my nearly two year old! It started with an episode here and there on the TV. Then they ventured to the laptop through YouTube. Now, Peppa, you have invaded our day to day life. We cannot escape. P2 is demanding …

“I’ve had nearly two years of broken sleep”

I’ve had nearly two years of broken sleep. Mr Google reckons this can have long-term side effects to your body functions. When we first introduced P3 to our nighttime routine, P2 was the reason for the 19months of sleepless nights. Then between the pair of them I was beginning to crumble. Things needed to change and change it did! P2 …
