I have spent the last two years of this parenting gig laying some serious Disney loving foundations. It may have been a little young and possibly not quite Disney’s target age range but as soon as Baby TV had got too much and was making my ears bleed we began to watch the movies, sing… Continue reading What is the ‘right’ age for Disney?
Parenting can feel like you need superpowers. The people you spend all day trying to protect regularly conspire against you and you spend your day being physically manhandled by bald little people with a selfish agenda. You are in constant contact with dangerous substances and you save the day time and time again with little recognition.… Continue reading Which superhero do you have most in common with?
2016 was a year of change for our family. Joe got promoted, we moved county, we had our first year as a married couple and our sweet baby turned into a rambunctious toddler. We are heading into 2017 full of excitement for what life will bring us. I envisage Joe will be working hard as… Continue reading 2017. What is in store for our family?
As a stay at home parent, I have always wondered if sending my toddler to nursery seems selfish. I worried that people would think I was lazy or didn’t enjoy my time with my daughter. I also worried that if I kept her home with me all of the time, she wouldn’t develop those crucial… Continue reading Starting Nursery.
Up until recently I was a helicopter mum. Well, I suppose I still am to a certain extent but recently I feel like I have really made some progress in loosening those apron strings a little. We went to a local softplay the other day and for the first time ever, I let her go. I didn’t put… Continue reading Helicopter Mum.
My eyes hurt. They are stinging and I’m not sure if it is tiredness, looking at a computer too long or both. Truth is, I don’t want to go to bed. Because when I go to bed I will go to sleep. When I go to sleep I will inevitably wake up and have to… Continue reading Dear daughter, I’m sorry.
In my family, we bloody love a good film/tv show. We love all things Marvel, we obsess over the latest Netflix series (I’m looking at you Designated Survivor!) so of course we saw Trolls advertised and I knew Isabelle would love it. Amazingly, she sits through films at the cinema no problem (most of the… Continue reading Trolls and a broken nose?
I have a car! Oh my goodness I love it. So much. Although I am still a learner so I have to have Joe in there with me, I feel like so much has changed. I booked my test last night and I cannot wait to pass and get some much needed independence. I really… Continue reading Independence day.
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… Continue reading Tears in Sainsburys.
We went out for lunch today and as we left the restaurant (Beefeater in case you were wondering), I said to Joe ‘I really hope we remember in ten years time all these hilarious little things Isabelle does’. I already feel like I have forgotten somethings, especially from when she was tiny. She used to… Continue reading I hope we remember.
