I was chatting to some of my Mummy friends recently about the subject of children going to bed, as a few friends are having some issues. Discussing this subject really made me realise just how lucky we have been with our twins. Sure, they are little monsters for me in other aspects (they are FAR from perfect during the day!) but going to bed at night has ALWAYS been so easy for…

Parks have played such a huge part of our family life over the last 4 years. I have written many a blog post about our trips to the local park…and taken lots of snaps of the children there too! The twins and I love going to a park and playing – especially to our local one. We have actually been lucky where we have lived, both…

If you’ve been following me on Facebook or Twitter during the last few days then I am terribly sorry about all the ‘drama’. My emotions have been running high and I’m feeling pretty exhausted from it all! First we were going to Rhodes, then we weren’t, now we are again. Phew. Life with kids is never simple. Or easy. Pass me the Prosecco! On Tuesday, after…

Dave and I fell for each other over 10 years ago. It was one of those relationships where you literally can’t wait to see them or speak to them – and get excited when you receive a text! I was in my late 20’s at the time – so we weren’t young kids – but it was still exciting all the same. We had so much fun…we…

Becoming a Stay-at-home-Mum was really important to me personally and I will forever feel fortunate to have been able to do it for the last 4 years. Luckily, financially, my Husband and I were in a position to be able to select this option – and it has worked really well for both of us; achieving the right work/life balance for us as a family. But still,…

Since my twins Harry & Lottie were toddlers they have ALWAYS been interested in children’s crafts and making things. They get so excited with anything to do with stickers, paints, glue and colouring in. In fact, as they get older and are now preschoolers, this is getting more and more of a passion. Lottie especially loves to create things on card and pieces of paper. Although…

I have written before on here about Lottie’s separation anxiety towards me. This has been a really challenging part of parenting as a Mum…having a little girl who doesn’t like being with anyone else, or being away from your side…especially when she is a twin. It is something that I have spoken to other parents, friends, health visitors, sought advice online over – and we’ve tried everything going.…

When I used to dream about myself & Motherhood I actually thought that I was going to nail it. In my head (during the week) I’d be off swimming one day, baby yoga the next, and then meeting up with my new Mummy friends to do Starbucks and shopping with my new baby. Days out galore. I thought I’d really embrace it all and have…

Harry & Lottie own a great deal of toys that they have been given as presents over the last few years. They have a joint playroom and a bedroom each FULL of boxes of toys and games. Mostly of the plastic variety that come in plenty of bits. And whilst they love playing with them it is so nice when they get a toy that is superb quality, vintage and…
