The Juggling Act – Working From Home & Life With A Toddler

By | April 4th, 2017|Parenting|2 Comments

Things are a little bit crazy at the moment. There is an overwhelming amount of things happening. Some are in plain sight and some are "behind the scenes". Safe to say I'm finding it difficult to juggle everything. Balance is a foreign concept and one I haven't felt in quite a while.   I won't [...]

By | March 22nd, 2017|Food, Parenting, Recipe, review|0 Comments

Does anyone else have a toddler who literally eats all day long? I've said it time and time again - I got an eater rather than a sleeper.   Little man is great for the grub, it has to be said. He is constantly snacking though. Like all day everyday. If we go somewhere I [...]

I'm afraid to say it in case I'm wrong lads. I'll whisper it in case he hears. Toddler man has selective hearing these days. I THINK WE ARE DONE WITH NAPS. Like for reals. We had a false alarm a few months ago but this would appear to be the real deal. I need to [...]

Starting this blog was a pipe-dream of mine. I loved reading other blogs and was avidly following other women's pregnancies through their websites and blog posts. It felt so real and so open. I had always been a massive lover of writing. I'd write anywhere that words were allowed. I was the third year student whose [...]

Reasons I Felt Super Down Last Week

By | February 18th, 2017|Parenting|0 Comments

What a cringy title. This is a bit of a "does exactly what it says on the tin" post. I was on a real low last week and it kind of scared me. As some of you will know I suffer with anxiety and it's something I have learned to accept in recent years. In [...]

By | January 13th, 2017|Parenting|8 Comments

I am always a bit weary about writing these posts. I suppose I am exposing myself and putting my hand out to be slapped or something. People will wonder how a parent can let something like this happen. HOW a toddler locks themselves in to a room. It is important to me that this blog [...]

I don't like to do things in halves, me.   So a couple of months ago we started Billy at a playschool. He is VERY attaached to me so it felt like a good idea. He would be mixing with other kids and developing a bit of independence. He is very social and just loves [...]

VIDEO – I Gave Little Man His First Haircut

By | November 8th, 2016|Parenting, Uncategorized|1 Comment

Why oh why is this so emotional? I mean I knew it always would be, but it really feels like a huge milestone.   It's no secret that I adore the little man's hair. It is wild, crazy and full of of random curls. It just totally represents his personality and I really love it. [...]
