Birth Reflections Service At The Coombe Maternity Hospital

By | May 4th, 2019|breastfeeding, Parenting|0 Comments

I had to write this while it was fresh in my head because I'm still completely reeling after my experience on Thursday. I want to shout it from the rooftops that this service exists because I'm not quite sure if I can truly articulate just how much it's impacted me since.   Birth Reflections is [...]

Preparing For A New Breastfeeding Journey ♥

By | March 11th, 2019|breastfeeding, Parenting|0 Comments

I wanted to write this post while it's all fresh in my head. I've just attended Nicola O' Byrne's breastfeeding prep class and I am full to the brim with new information and most importantly confidence and excitement for this next chapter in my life. Nicola is a certified lactation consultant and an all round [...]

New Baby New House

By | November 27th, 2018|Lifestyle, Parenting|0 Comments

I don't like to do things in half do I? We moved in to our new house less than a month ago and the comments starting flooding in about "new house, new baby". I giggled at every single Instagram comment or suggestion that this would be the next chapter for us. Little did anyone know [...]

No More Dodies In This House – Four Years Of Soothing

By | September 14th, 2018|Parenting|0 Comments

I actually googled the word dodie so forgive me if its wrong but that seems to be the way most people spell it. I could have said soother (or pacifier to my American and Canadian readers) but in our house it has always been a dodie.     I can't believe I am writing this [...]

What Being Four Looks Like

By | June 30th, 2018|Parenting, Uncategorized|0 Comments

I wanted a bit of a time capsule to look back on to remember what having a four year old was like. The little quirky bits and specific anecdotes which might blur a little as time moves on. So here is a little look at what life is like with our four year old.   [...]

Billy’s 4th Birthday Party At Celbridge Playzone

By | June 13th, 2018|Parenting, review|0 Comments

  I can remember it like it was yesterday. I had been so convinced that I would go in to labour earlier than my due date (I now recognize that was "hope"). I desperately wanted to meet him and the 30th May always felt a million years away. It's funny because in my head it [...]

The Turn In Billy’s Eye & Why He Is Wearing An Eye Patch

By | May 12th, 2018|Lifestyle, Parenting|0 Comments

So I thought I would write a quick post about our situation with Billy's eye because it seems to affect a lot of parents and it just might help someone else. I've received a lot of messages on Snapchat and Instagram ranging from asking me to explain what happens at the appointments right down to [...]

That Time My Three Year Old Broke His Leg For A Week

By | October 24th, 2017|Parenting|0 Comments

Let's jump right in to it shall we?   It was a Sunday afternoon. Hubby was over in Cardiff at the Ireland game and myself and my aunt decided to take "the kids" to a play centre. This is something we never do and it was a total novelty for them on a Sunday. We [...]

The Perfect Saturday

By | October 10th, 2017|Lifestyle, Parenting|0 Comments

It seems a bit narcissistic to write an entire blog post about why I enjoyed Saturday 7th October so much doesn't it? But this is a website about me, my life and my thoughts so I'm thinking that ship has well and truly sailed. I wanted to document this one though because I'm still very [...]

High Strung Parent To Slightly Less High Strung

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

I'm evolving every day as a mother. So are you by the way. Unless you are a father in which case you're doing the very same as a Daddy. I'll be honest, I am not the kind of person who looks back with regret because truth be told everything makes sense in the moment. We [...]
