As Friday approaches, I finally understand the sighs of ‘Thank god for half term’  from parents, teachers and pupils alike across the country.I thought it would be easier to have one child at school because, well they’re out all day right?! So that’s one less to worry about?!I errr, made a mistake.This first half a term has been a massive shock to the system – its not the school runs, its all the newness to get my head around – the uniform requirements, the reading book system, the sticker system, the school lunch system, the parents facebook group, the PTA...

I thought it was time for a blog post that wasn’t about my babies for once (don’t worry, I’m sure it’s just a one off) and I wondered if you might find it interesting to hear about all the prep going on behind the scenes ready for Christmas 2018.You might not be interested to be fair, in which case feel free to switch back to one of my ever-so-pithy parenting observations. So, Christmas.It’s the most wonderful time of the year.Sometimes.And sometimes it’s the most crazed-lunatic-running-around-like-a-manic-and-shouting-an-awful-lot time of the year. I have decided that this year, it’s all in the prep and I’m...

It was yesterday when you arrived in a hurry Causing us all to fret and to worry Just a moment ago when we brought you home And I cried in the bathroom, a bit scared and aloneIt was yesterday when we rocked you at night, Asking ourselves, are we doing this right Just a moment ago it was feed after feed Locked in a cuddle, your every needIt was yesterday when we first heard you talk, Saw your first steps, as you learned how to walk Just a moment ago when we first really knew Who you would be, what made you youIt was yesterday when we learned the...

Happy Friday team MR! Right, here's another post from 2014 whilst I build up ammunition for my next brand new post (though to be fair, as some of you might have seen on my stories this week, Tuesday's parenting escapades could have covered an entire dedicated post entitled 'Losing my shit' or 'Tears, tantrums & Teeth' or even 'Pond dipping; its not for everyone').Anyway I digress.This is just a little something I wrote when Alfie was around 3 months old about how ever-so-slightly insane I was feeling and how this was coming out in my day to day behaviour.Reading this really...

Hello lovelies,So, in 2014 I starting writing a blog called The Brutal Truth (so dramatic haha) after my first child was born and I thought I'd pop some of the posts on here too. As I mentioned before, the context of these posts is generally;Sleep deprived Shell shocked ConfusedTo explain a little, I was the first person from my friendship group to have a baby, as well as the first (of my generation) in our family too. I had never been around babies at all. I wasn't on twitter on insta, and I certainly wasn't part of, or even aware...
