When the twins (who sleep in separate bedrooms) were ready, we removed the sides off their cots and turned them into super-cute toddler beds. They were, in fact, pretty good at adapting to these new beds – I think Harry got out of it a lot for a few nights – but then they mostly ‘got on with it’. They…

Oh my. I think I blinked, Christmas was over and the new year arrived! Wow..the last few months of 2016 whizzed by and I cannot believe that we are now all back at work, talking goals & diets and into a brand new year once more. Without sounding too cliche our Christmas really was absolutely amazing and the twins (at four…

The school summer holidays are nearly at an end now – just one week to go – and I don’t know about you but I am feeling pretty tired and have completely run out of ideas for fun stuff to do! Over the last five weeks the twins and I have been out to parks, been swimming, done numerous playdates, soft play,…

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…

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…

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.…

When the twins were a few months old, somebody (I can’t remember who) told me that they would get ‘easier’ at around four years old. I didn’t quite know how to react to this news, and thought (at the time) that four years old felt SO far away. “It can’t be all that bad surely?” I naively thought. Of course there have been all…

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 –…

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…
