My opinion on this matter has been varied. Being the oldest of 5, I have watched my mum raising all different types of children. My sister was a demon child (i'm not offending her by saying this as she is well aware). She misbehaved and cried pretty much from the minute she was born. Just … Continue reading The Dummy Debate?!?!
When I think back on those first days and weeks it seems like it all passed in the blink of an eye. However living it was an entirely different story. Days felt like they would never end, and taking our boy home seemed like it was light years away. It was 12 days before I … Continue reading Then There Was You… Final Part
Being a first time mum I have discovered a great many things about having a child. Things like never expecting to have a long lie ever again are obvious, but I didn't fully understand that every time I ventured out with said child, it would be the equivalent of moving house with all the "stuff" … Continue reading What’s In My Bag – Venturing Out (Toddlers Edition)
The day after Matthew was born I was moved from the labouring room into a single room. I felt quite lucky being allocated a room of my own, what with having so little privacy in the open wards. It wasn't until later on that morning that I overheard one of the midwives telling another staff … Continue reading Then there was you… Part 2
As I've mentioned in a previous post, I am a big fan of books. Unfortunately since having my little boy I've found I no longer have the time to pick up a book and get lost inside the pages like I used to. However... I do try to as often as I can, having even … Continue reading My Current Favourite Books
Follow my blog with Bloglovin Generally speaking, raising kids is hard work. Toddlers in particular I find, are like navigating your way through a minefield. They have a seemingly unending amount of energy and if my little human is anything to go by then you will spend most of your day chasing them around the … Continue reading MUMMY MUST-HAVES (Chill Out Edition)
As I've previously shared, my son was born prematurely and with this comes several potential problems. Due to being subjected to several rounds of antibiotics as a baby, as well as having mine and his dads allergy-ridden genes, he has become a sufferer a few different allergies, including Eczema. When it first appeared, it was very minimal. … Continue reading How we deal with baby/ infant Eczema!
Apologies for this follow up post taking so long. It's been a crazy few weeks and time has quite literally gotten away from me. We have all been struck down with every sick and flu virus going and even now, I still feel like i'm at deaths door. Anyway... Michael and I were just going … Continue reading Trying Trying Trying… Pt 3
In April of 2015 I had a minor meltdown. I was home by myself and felt an overwhelming rush of emotions that resulted in a good 8 hours of self-loathing and depression. It was a culmination of years of failed attempts and getting pregnant and crazy hormones. My husband came home from work and spent … Continue reading Trying Trying Trying… Pt 2
My husband and I have been together (off and on) for 16 years. We were High School Sweethearts. He is the best person I have ever known. Kind, considerate and everything else in between. I knew, despite the many fall-outs, that he was my person. By that I mean, even on the occasions where we … Continue reading Trying, Trying, Trying…
Follow my blog with Bloglovin So I had a blog a few years ago which I really enjoyed writing. It was a mixture of beauty and lifestyle posts, and I posted most days. This time around I'm not quite so sure of the content I want to focus on. I have many interests and therefore … Continue reading Still Trying To Figure This Out!
