Groggy Summers Day

I really hate storms. Call me childish, but they are scary. I don’t know why or where my feeling of nervousness comes from. The moment I heard the very loud, very angry grumble of thunder I immediately snuggled up to my OH. He slept through the first few hours of the storm! We seem to have finally cracked P2s awful …

A Royal Baby Boy

Firstly, a huge congratulations to William and Kate on the birth of their baby boy! Gosh it’s hard enough being a “normal” mother, whatever that is, let alone being a Royal mother. Under constant watchful, judgmental and nosey eyes. But surely being a royal mother is a hell of a lot easier!! I bet right this second Kate is struggling …

Fluke?

Another very odd night in the sleeping department of P2. I fed her at 9:30pm, put her in her cot about 10:30pm. She then woke up at about 2:30am, but I literally got myself out of bed and put her dummy in her mouth. She fell straight back to sleep until 4:30am. Although she’s rather content and happy, she’s currently …

Hospital Admittance – Again!

Following my perfect night sleep came a dreadful day. I was happy and motivated and began work on my business spreadsheets. A few minutes later I had little white dots which spread across my vision to prevent me from looking at things properly. This was an indication of my migraines I used to have when on the full contraceptive pill. …

Where Did That Come From

After what seems like so many broken nights of sleep, last night was a tad different. Rather unusual and very nice. P2 had fallen asleep at about 8pm, on top of our bed whilst I sat and worked on creating our new business spreadsheets. She was quite unsettled but didn’t feed. She then woke at about 10pm for an hour, …

Sleepy In The Heatwave

I’ve been feeling really down recently. In a sort of hole that I can’t seem to climb out of. I’ll be fine all day, right up until when P1 goes to bed. I’ll just be quiet and down, then randomly cry. I really think it’s a lack of sleep causing this. P2 has been waking and feeding every two hours …

Fly Away

You are all going to think I’m really pathetic with this post but it has to be done. This weather has been amazing. I hate how everyone complains about the cold, wet typical British weather, yet moan when it’s wonderfully hot and sunny!! Why?! I’ve been making use of my Grandparents, MiL and finally our garden at any given opportunity. …

School Appeal Hearing

Life has been utterly crazy recently. I feel like I’m knee deep in wedding planning, business planning and parenting. To top that off, our Internet is down at home which means I’m stuck with shoddy iPhone Internet. Today, well today was really scary! We had our school appeal hearing today. My OH and I dressed up, him in his suit …

Riding A Bike

My grandad has been teaching P1 to ride her bike. He bought her a beautiful bike, pink with a seat for her toys, stabilisers and even a bell attached. It’s been about a year. At first it was reported that she would only pedal backwards. I hadn’t yet witnessed her on her bike until today. P1 was amazing! She actually …

Family Dynamics

Families are funny little creatures. We all have one. It doesn’t just end at your parents or siblings, oh no, it extends to great lengths really. My family itself is totally confusing. My mum has been married three times, I have a younger half brother and a younger step sister. I have a stepdad, who’s family alone would confuse you. …

Over And Done With… Look To The Future

P1 finished school Wednesday. She came home with two books full of bits and bobs she’s done since moving into the “Badgers” room. It made me so proud to see everything and read all the wonderful comments about my daughter. When I picked her up, all her nursery friends went running up to her and gave her the biggest of …

Co-Sleeping Troubles

Co-sleeping has taken a turn for the worse, if you’re my OH, or for the better if you are me. I keep accidentally falling asleep with feeding, which in this heat is pretty easy. P2 will start in her cot and end up in our bed. I have no issues with that whilst she’s small. However, a few nights ago …

The End Of An Era

It’s an emotional Mummy day today. P1 finishes nursery for 6 weeks leading up to the start of big school (which we still have no idea of where she’ll go) I tried to prepare P1 as much as possible. She’s an intelligent girl and I wanted her to have the chance to say goodbye and enjoy herself on her last …

Heatwave

Our breastfeeding journey has been pretty straight forward, only crack sore nipples this time round. Today, I’m worrying. This heat is beautiful and I love being in the sun, but P2 just isn’t feeding properly. One minute she’s feeding all the time, the next she’s really unhappy by my boob and squirms and cries. I’m worried I’m not drinking enough, …
