This week has been a tough one. I've been filled with so much guilt, been feeling so unbelievably upset, completely emotional in ways I'm not usually and irrationality worried over everything. I can't seem to shift this feeling even though deep down I know I'm doing nothing wrong. I'm parenting in the exact way that… Continue reading Mama guilt
This has been one of the most packed weeks I think I've lived in a long time.. there's been job interview, trial shifts, party planning, birthday prep, doctors appointments, march planning (I'll post more on that later) and a wonderful bout of some horrendous tonsillitis to top it all off. There's been tears, tantrums, laughs,… Continue reading What a week!
This week is postnatal depression awareness week. The wonderful Sophie Farrow of Bad Mum collected stories from mother's to help bring awareness to PND and to allow mother's to say it as it is. I was very lucky to be involved in this week's campaign and would love if you could pop over to her… Continue reading PANDA awareness Week

Yesterday we had fear like I've never felt before. We woke up hours before the baby and come 11:30 she finally awoke. To many this is the dream. For us this was not normal. Our little lady slept all morning, when she finally awoke she was weak, limp and somehow still tired. She was burning… Continue reading Sickness
This week we have all been struck down with the cold. Scott's god an immune system built from Titanium so only had a few sniffles and a scratchy throat. I however have been snorting, coughing and aching from head to toe. Quite literally since I've had headaches then tore off part of my toe nail,… Continue reading Sickness
Where has the time gone? It certainly does not feel like it's been 10 months since our little lady made her way into the world. It feels like she's been part of our lives for hardly any time at all yet I can't remember her not being here. I mean I remember life before baby,… Continue reading 10 months!
At 8.5 months old we officially have our first word. She's been shouting it (she doesn't use her inside voice) for the past month along with 'ma da ba ha' but we just put it down as her making sounds and finding her voice since she also likes to look you dead in the eye… Continue reading First word!
When I had a baby I realised quite quickly that having some form of routine was goig to make my life easier. Now I'm not talking a fully planned out itinerary with feeds, nappy changes and play time all accounted for at particular times. I'm talking more like bedtime routine or a pattern you follow… Continue reading Routine.
