However, I’m always on the hunt for a good bargain and here’s how we managed to spend the night {Read More}

Making Meals with the Kids

Children always manage to find the most inconvenient times to decide they need a cuddle or just want to literally stand hugging your leg or asking you questions, don’t they! My two seem to know instinctively when it is time for me to start making the dinner and they almost turn into some sort of clingy, whingy whiny horror that only manages to get under my feet. Well, instead of having arguments or tantrums and trying to force the children {Read More}

Tears Into Smiles

When the sun is finally shining bright And your little toes wiggle in the gentle breeze Running, jumping, climbing to the greatest height Kicking balls, flying kites, digging in the fallen leaves There’s a part of me always looking out for you Silently wincing, flinching, cringing, as you take a small tumble. Instead of keeping you wrapped up close, like my heart often tells me to I stand aside while you discover your new limits telling me it’s ok to {Read More}

Why two is enough for me.

I always thought I wanted three children; both my husband and I come from families with three children and three just seemed to be the magic number. However, now I have actually been pregnant, gone through childbirth and have my two beautiful, strong-willed, independent children, I can quite honestly say that two is my magic number.  In a way I think it helps that we have a girl and a boy – that way you don’t second guess and wonder {Read More}

Selfish Mother

Okay, so this is probably a little of an exaggeration but truth be told, whenever I do something ‘big’ for myself, I do feel that pang of guilt parents often get. I feel as though I should be at home with my children instead of out enjoying myself. But reality is, parents need ‘me time’ to be the best parents they can be. If we as parents don’t have a break every once in a while, we won’t be giving {Read More}

First half term of shool: done!

It’s been a whole half term for Isabella at Big School. I can’t believe her first half term of school is done – although I have noticed a huge change. From worrying about how my little August baby would cope to knowing she’s happy and settled is a wonderful feeling.   So what’s changed? She’s grown up a lot. I know that seems like a really obvious one but having been around older children and just being in a school setting, she {Read More}
