What Mother’s Day means to me…..

I remember growing up when it was just myself and my Mum. Seeing how hard she worked to provide for us, look after me and play both parenting roles. I just remember just wanting to always show her how grateful I was for everything she ever did for me. I still feel like that now.  […]

Don’t judge a book by its cover

Don’t judge a book by its cover is one of my favourite sayings.  You never know what someone is having to deal with. You don’t know what’s going on inside. I remember the early days after I had lost Ethan, looking around and thinking that everyone who had a baby where lucky. That they had […]

Pinterest Mum

What I wish I knew before I became a Mummy. I don’t know about you but about 80% of the time I am totally winging it with this motherhood malarkey! I couldn’t wait to be a Mummy and have my own children when I was younger. I thought I would smash parenting. With always having […]

Bedtime routine

I couldn’t decide today what to write for my blog post. I feel a bit lost in my thoughts at the moment as Ethan’s birthday creeps closer and only weeks to go. I thought about a few subjects but instead I decided to write about something a little more light hearted. As the ones that […]

Parenting with FND

One of the many things I get asked about with having FND is how I manage with having a toddler (a wild child toddler at that!). Now I won’t lie it’s not without great difficulty. The first thing you have to try and wrap your head around is do not feel guilty. This is something […]

I'm a boy Mum

What’s it like being a Mum to boys? I’ll tell you what it’s like… Gross, Amazing, Loving, Kind, Caring, Considerate, Fun, Exciting, Adventurous, More grossness, poo and bum conversations (Alfie once told me that his poo looked like a digger lol) and shouting various things such as; “Don’t play with it Alfie” and “Hands out […]

Alfie I have a secret

Alfie I have a secret. I love to cuddle you at night when you sleep. Watch as you dream, smell your sleepy smell. Drink up every breath of you and watch you in awe and amazement. As I watch you sleep I wonder what dreams fill your still new and exciting mind. What pieces your […]
