A letter to Oscar on his seventh …

Dear Oscar Today you turned seven! I know it’s a huge cliche, but I can’t quite believe how quickly the past seven years have gone. As I said to you this morning, seven years ago you changed my life – you made me a mummy. I wrote about the day…

The parenting rollercoaster – stop the ride I …

As a mum of three, including 3 year-old twins, I often get asked “How do you do it?”. If I’m brutally honest, somedays I really don’t know! Recently I’ve been finding this whole parenting lark hard. Really hard. All three of our children seem to waking up before 6am, particularly…

The demise of the daytime nap

When the twins were still tiny, we worked hard to ensure that they were in a good, predictable routine (I think it’s the only way to survive twins!). As a result they’ve always been good sleepers. They go to bed at 7pm and sleep until about 6/6.30am. They’ve also always…

Potty training begins

On Friday Heidi began her potty training journey. A week ago I bought a pack of Huggies Pull Ups as they were on offer. Heidi really took to them and has been showing a real interest in the potty, so on Friday I decided to take the plunge and let…

Losing Bunny

Earlier this month we went to stay with our friends over the bank holiday weekend. We had a lovely time and the kids were all really well behaved, which is always a bonus! On the journey home, we realised that Oscar didn’t have his beloved Bunny. Bunny is a Jellycat…
