We're only a few weeks into 2019 and already it has been the best year so far! This time last year we had just accepted an offer on our old house after months of waiting, and we were also in the process of buying a new one. What a long, stress inducing nightmare that then… Continue reading A perfect birthday!
I'm sure I've mentioned a few times already about how Munchkin1 loves to sing and dance, and to suddenly burst into song at any time, anywhere. And I love it! Probably because I also like to sing my way through life, and also probably where she gets it from! Try it sometime, it makes boring,… Continue reading Life’s a happy song!
I just wanted to share with you something the Munchkin said to me last night that made me chuckle. Every night at bedtime we read stories and sing some songs together before she settles down to sleep. I like to teach her as many songs and nursery rhymes as possible, including the songs my Dad… Continue reading Mary’s Little Lamb
You get pregnant. Everyone is excited. They tell you that your life will be full of joy, nappies and sleepless nights, but what they don't tell you is what happens after the baby stage. Nobody tells you of the moment your sweet little baby transforms into something monstrous, something terrifying. The moment they become (dun… Continue reading The Curse of the Threenager!
This time last year we had a just turned 2 year-old and were excited to meet our new little Munchkin in a few months time. This time we're entering the New Year with a just turned 3 year-old cheeky little Madam, a 7 month-old happy, grabs anything in sight little man, and looking forward to… Continue reading Happy New Year!
So this morning as I sat down to give Munchkin2 his morning feed, I checked my phone to find I had a notification on Twitter. This turned out to be a nomination for a Blogger Recognition Award from the lovely Sue at Mama Mia. It was such a lovely surprise and I'm delighted to accept… Continue reading Blogger Recognition Award
Oh wow have I got some good ones for you this time! Munchkin1 never fails to crack me up, and some of the things she has been coming out with have been brilliant. In fact, she had just said one to me a moment ago when in the shower... "I have beautiful hair Mummy!" "You… Continue reading Munchkin says… #3
Yes! We actually managed to have a good night's sleep in the super comfortable Premier Inn beds! Munchkin2 woke up for his feed at 4am, and other than waking to use the toilet at about midnight, Munchkin1 slept until just before 6am. Breakfast opened at 7am so we were there with rumbling tummies as soon… Continue reading Chester! Our mini holiday – Day 3
Our second day basically started at 2am when Munchkin1 woke up saying she was wet. Luckily we had been smart enough to remember to take disposable inco sheets with us to place on her bed, and there was a 3rd bed made up so we pinched the spare duvet and sheet from there. We gave… Continue reading Chester Zoo! Our mini holiday – Day 2
Our mini holiday this year was to Chester for 2 nights. On the way we visited Eureka Children's Museum, here's what we got up to on Day 1 of our trip.
