Oh Baby Girl

So today I got to see Hallie’s consultant. She has a twitch that she has had since birth. It’s more of a tremor to be honest and is actually really beginning to worry me as its getting worse and worse. It is really juddery, almost fit like, and is in her arms and legs and…

Maternity Ward Nights

So I am trying, trying really hard to think kind thoughts, to send good wishes, to share calming vibes, but I just want to scream SHUT THE *^#+ UP. I feel so mean, so nasty, but so tired and in pain too. Plus my partner is not here talking in a loud normal level voice…

I switched the milk – will he notice?

Will Grayson (3) notice I switched his milk this morning? Well he spotted the Koko on the counter and pointed out the palm trees, telling me it was a beach. I distracted him with Noddy, thank heavens for Auntie Jen on Milkshake, breakfast to.  He sat and munched his breakfast without any milk related fuss….

Ouchy — sleepy tea to the rescue

One broken tooth, one major dental phobia and one presumed infection equals one very poorly and ouchy ear and a very sad and pained mummy. Feeling so sorry for myself tonight.  Finally finally having my tooth fixed on Saturday, under sedation, amazingly covered on my Maternity Exemption. But until then I need some kind of…

Saturday morning soak!

I’ve snuck off for a bath! Daddy is clearing out Grayson’s bedroom ready to start painting for the new ‘jungle / animal bedroom’, Ruby is snoozing and Grayson is happy to be having ten minutes of iPad fun. So I have escaped, to put a conditioning treatment on my hair – a mummy need!! Ruby…

My special little man

So Grayson might have Dyspraxia, and possibly ADHD. These are the initial thoughts of my sister who is qualified as a SENCO in school.  Preschool have already confirmed they have concerns, well at least they confirmed this when I raised my concerns.  Having that conversation was massively hard, part of me was so relieved that…

Heart Melting Mummy Music Moment 

So this morning on the ridiculously long journey to Pre school, don’t even get me started on the A1, Grayson was asking for music. So whilst sat going nowhere, I found Justin Fletcher’s (Mr Tumble to most of us) album on Spotify and popped it on. It was the cutest moment, Grayson transformed from sleepy,…

Time to be me …..

It’s time to just be me, and to stop fretting, comparing and putting pressure on myself. Big deal, I started this blog and have been utterly rubbish at writing it! The more I stress about the fact I have not kept up with it, the longer I leave it and the more I stress and…

Let the Pinteresting Commence

So I set myself a challenge a while back to ‘do’, ‘make’ or ‘achieve’ two of the zillions of things I pin on my Pinterest boards each week.  After all what is the point if they just sit on the boards and gather virtual dust?! This morning I decided to brave it, in two ways….
