Weekend Away

So it’s 8am I’m wide awake and the day has started normal for a mum of two you might think, but I am on a girls weekend away in Barcelona and I could have had a lie in – annoying! I didn’t think I would ever be able to go away and leave my boys […]

Navigating Returning to Work

Navigating returning to work as a mummy of two has been just as it sounds a journey.  I wrote previously about the decision of whether to return to work or not and since then my husband and I have looked at loads of options.  We realised pretty quickly that for us it would not work […]

Having two children

So what’s it like having two children? This is a question I asked anyone and everyone from about 6 months pregnant with my second. It was at this point that I began to freak out. Would I be able to cope? How would I manage and balance the needs of both? Everyone assured me it […]

Potty Training Stubborn Boy

So here we are in week three of potty training and I am dealing with a very stubborn boy.  Potty training stubborn boy is currently summing up my existence. He is just like a mini me and that is hugely frustrating as I don’t whether to laugh at ‘me’ or get irritated by his seeming […]

Cheap Family Meals – Pasta Bake

Cheap family meals are what I am always seeking and I just recently remembered another which was one of my favourites; my mum’s pasta bake.  We often used to have this as children and I would always be left wanting more.  I mean cheese, pasta, tomato and mince what’s not to like… As a mummy I am […]

Baby’s First Birthday

Today was the little ones first birthday and I was more excited last night than I am for my own birthday.  There is something so magical about a baby’s first birthday the idea of everything being brand new and experienced for the first time really appeals to my imagination and makes me go OTT on the celebration front. With […]

Formula Milk after 12 months.

I am currently confused… This happens a lot as a mummy I find as there is just so much conflicting advice about everything. Using my slightly dodgy mummy compass I am trying to work out whether or not I should still be giving formula post 12 months or not. We have always stuck with one […]

Navigating Potty Training

Potty Training off I go again… When finding my way through this particular minefield I have struggled to even find the entry to the maze let alone actually be able to locate the centre! We originally tried this when our eldest was 28 months and it went great for a month or so, but then […]
