Thank you to the lovely Sarah over at Run, Jump, Scrap for nominating me for the ‘I’m the Mum who…’ tag. Pop over to see her post here and have a read of the rest of her blog, it’s fab! I love reading and writing posts like this as they delve a little deeper into our personalities. So let’s get started. I am the Mum who… Loves planning out my little boys outfits & treats it slightly like a dressing up game. Sometimes needs a break. Sings songs to my boy all day (he even sings back now!) Worries I am not… View Post

Weaning Little Man was easy, he loved his food. In fact, weaning was one of the things I worried about. I’m not a very good cook so I was concerned that I would find it difficult to introduce new foods and flavours to him confidently. However, it was all fine.

It even helped to get me back off to sleep… View Post

‘If you don’t hold Daddy’s hand you will be put in the corner Little Man’ we told our 2 and a half year old on a trip to the park. We are not strict parents, we like to take Little Man places where he has the opportunity to run free a bit.

They need to run and run and run otherwise at 9pm at night they will still be singing ‘Old MacDonald had a farm….and… View Post

Before I had Little Man I would hear peoples birth stories and couldn’t wait to feel the instant love for my baby that so many spoke about. The overwhelming feeling of love for that little person that was yours. I couldn’t wait till I saw my little man for the first time and I would feel that too. Except I didn’t. As controversial as it sounds and as heartless as it sounds, I just didn’t get it. My little boy was shown to me over the screen hiding my open tummy after my emergency caesarean. He was then shown to… View Post
