10 Ways I’m Rocking Motherhood

My lovely friend Sarah at A Mundane Life has tagged me in the Rocking Motherhood tag. So, I’ve had to sit down and think of 10 ways I’m rocking motherhood. I think most of us are rocking motherhood in our own way (well, not some of those mum’s you see in the Daily Mail), and… Read More »

The Bobsy at 16 Months

Now, regular readers will know, from previous updates, that The Bobsy is an angel. This last week however, The Bobsy has not been an angel. She has been an absolute terror! She is quickly becoming a strong willed little lady. Hunky Husband and Bobsy’s Nan, both seem to think she may have got this from… Read More »

The Non-Maternal Mother

I’m perhaps one of the least maternal women going. I do not like children. I never have. However, I always wanted my own. So, I am, perhaps, somewhat of a contradiction. I’m also quite fond of my own, this is, however, because I am raising them in my totally unmumsy way, so they’re not quite… Read More »

Ideal Housework Jobs for Six-Year-Olds

I think it’s important for children, and in some cases, husbands (mine is very good, as I’m sure are many others!) to help out with housework. It is after all, their house. The Boy has always been pretty good at it. He gets pocket money, but not for housework really, just for “being good”. This… Read More »

The Bobsy at 15 Months

I’ve written this whole post as “14 months” then realised she’s actually very nearly 15 months. I am an awful parent that doesn’t know how old my children are! Oh dear. I think it’s partly denial. I just can’t believe she is already 15 months. It’s not until you stop and think, that you realise… Read More »

Our Eleven Month Routine

I often find myself wondering “is this what The Boy did when he was this age?” or indeed, “Isn’t she meant to have more naps?!” but I really can’t remember. The Boy seemed to be a baby for a really long time, I don’t know if it’s because I’m more prepared this time, or that… Read More »

My Top 10 Weaning Tips

Weaning is something we’ve never had trouble with. I wouldn’t even say we’ve weaned, just given them food and they’ve eaten it. At just over 6 months they’ve both been eating the same as the rest of us, not even mashed up or blended. The Boy at 5 doesn’t like cheese, but that’s it, thy… Read More »
