F^ck you teeth! Leave my daughters mouth alone!

Teething is s nightmare and as if night terrors isn’t enough, the teething has rejoined for another visit. Hopefully not to last too long this time. Now that her canines are coming through, Emily is drooling hard. My poor bubba just can’t catch a break at the moment and has pretty much gone off all…

Night terrors are relentless lately

Last night Emily had a night terror and dear god it was like summoning something from the exorcist. At first, not knowing what it was, I picked her up and Sam said put her in bed with us, which of course woke up some mini-demon and a full-blown temper tantrum followed, lasting 10 mins downstairs…

Only a few days to go before Emily’s Christening

Emily’s Christening is in less than a few days and this week has been crazy with work, keeping Emily active and busy as well as doing a million other things that I didn’t really need to add to my week but had to do anyway. On top of that, obviously I decided to do the…

The Night Terrors are a nightmare

As if teething wasn’t enough, my little munchkin is now starting to experience the not-so-nice, night terrors. Although not uncommon and usually only lasting a few minutes at a time, it freaks her out so much that she just wakes up and my sleep gets affected too. Like last night, I probably went to bed…

I can’t believe how quick the last few weeks have gone…

Where has the time gone? No, seriously, where has it gone? It’s already been a fortnight since Jane’s funeral, which time has just flown by since, and now in less than 2 weeks it will be Emily’s christening. The event I’ve been planning since January, yes I’m a little bit of an organised freak, and…

Anyone else’s child obsessed with The Boss Baby?

I bought the Baby Boss dvd last month after my sister said we had to watch it. And what to do you know, Emily loved it. Like a lot. She’s totally obsessed and it seems she’s not the only child who is. Ok. So we don’t access to the mini series on our TV with…

Advice for new mums…

Honestly, I’m probably not the best person to give advice on having a baby and what happens next as I’ve only had one baby, a baby, my baby, little Emily who isn’t so little anymore, but in the eyes of just about most, is very little, but I do think there should be some kind…

Dribble Fever Has Arrived

As if having a fever for 24 hours wasn’t enough earlier this week, Emily’s teeth have decided to drop in for a bit of a party too. Now, thanks to the various few teeth trying to claw their way in, another level of dribbling has entered the building too. And I mean a lot. Dribbling…

My Daughter Isn’t In Dresses, So What?

Emily looks gorgeous in dresses, but no she doesn’t wear them all the time. This seems to be a problem for some people, not naming names, that I don’t dress her in dresses because I want her to just have fun. So I felt the need to write something, it shouldn’t bother me, but it…

Children and iPads

A huge debate always occurs around the topic of children and technology. Young children with phones and access to the internet freely is wrong, and I will always stick to my guns as I’ve worked in the online industry for 10-years and have seen some things. But I’m not writing about kids with phones, I’m…

Nappy wars 

When you become a parent, you expect certain brands to be better than others. The more expensive something is, the better, right? So when I first put Pampers on Emily, I will admit I was disappointed. I think Pampers is very overpriced for what it is. But this is what I think, everyone has their own…

Emily is such a water baby, I want to get her into swimming

Last year with friends, Sam and  I went weekly to a swimming group in Margate. It was fun and Emily loved it. She looked so adorable in her little swimming outfit and loved kicking her little legs in the pool with daddy. But the swimming group didn’t last long, not for the little babies anyway….
