This is the second instalment of #LittleLoves. We’ve had a pretty relaxed week to be honest, I have a uni assignment due soon which I haven’t spent nearly enough time on and Joe’s hours have been all topsy turvy with him doing days instead of nights which has thrown my evening routine out somewhat. I… Read More A Weekly Round Up #LittleLoves – A Lazy one.
Next week my baby turns 2. I cannot even explain how quickly that time has gone. I think the last few months have been possibly the hardest since she was born, but equally the most incredible to watch. I can actually have a conversation with her now, a full chat. She asks questions, she answers… Read More Tears in Sainsburys.
How do you deal with frustration? I am definitely doing it wrong. Take yesterday for example, Isabelle fell asleep in the car for about ten seconds as we were on our way home from getting Joe’s hair cut (don’t ask why we all went, we just always do). Naturally, as it was nap time and… Read More Frustration.
Today has been epically shitty. It has involved a night of little sleep, a missed nap, a full pint of water being thrown all over a 4 socket extension lead (that was in use might I add), crayon on the walls, biro pen on the coffee table and multiple slaps to the face all administered by… Read More Forced Positivity.

Fool. 5.30 – Finally up. Mum changed my nappy and I picked up the old one and threw… Read More A day in the life of a toddler.
Today we didn’t get dressed and brush our teeth until 2pm. We left the house to walk the dog at 2.15pm, ran around the field for half an hour picking daisies and then came home to hibernate. That was the extent of our day. Isabelle barely slept last night, not sure why but I was… Read More How lazy is too lazy?
I am the first to admit that I am a little competitive. I have a niece who is 6 weeks older than Isabelle and although I love her to bits I do have a tendency to compare them. When Isabelle ultimately falls short of whatever I am measuring them on this time, it is not… Read More Is parenting a competition?
I really hope I am not the only parent that loses their shit sometimes. Sometimes (regularly) I have to go into the kitchen and just rest my forehead on the cold kitchen counter and count to ten. Toddlers are beyond frustrating. This age is such an emotional rollercoaster for both them and us. Isabelle seems to… Read More Losing your shit – Toddlers VS Parents
