    You Have One Job: Don’t Raise A Dickhead

    You’ll have to excuse me today. I’ve just finished watching all 4 episodes of Little Boy Blue (seriously, if you haven’t seen it, you HAVE to) and I’m a bit emotional!   As the final recorded episode finished, our Sky box automatically tuned into the last channel we were watching (Comedy Central, obvs) and the brilliantly funny Chris Ramsey was talking about life as a fairly new parent. He started talking about the whole world of pressure and responsibility on a new parent’s shoulders, and I sort of zoned out after he uttered these words. “When you bring a life into this world… you have one job above everything else……

    Awkward Shit My 3 Year Old Asks: Why Is My Mini Wet?

    I suppose it’s fairly lucky that when it comes to my kids I don’t really have a filter. Does anyone?! After a pretty hilarious (erring on troubling) few days of trying to give my 3-year-old the answer to her above awkward question, I got to thinking about all the other awkward shit she has started to ask now her vocabulary is allowing her to literally vocalise her every thought. There are loads I could go into (as I’m sure you can imagine!) and maybe I will in the future. For now, I’ll focus on this one…   Why Is My Mini Always Wet?! This one has caused a bit of…

  • Life With Two Kids: No More Please!

    This time 18 months ago, the idea of having more than one kid was as far from my mind as possible, let alone more than two! And yet, here we are with two kids. And there we were a couple of months ago desperately taking pregnancy test after pregnancy test to see if I was pregnant with number three.   Let me just clarify, though, this was not excited testing. This was “Shit, fuck, I still haven’t come on! please don’t let there be two lines” testing. We most certainly do not want anymore children, and this was the epitomy of pregnancy scares. I wanted to write a post about…

  • Working Mum Wednesday New Friday

    Working Mum: Wednesday Is The New Friday!

    I’m not overly keen on the phrase ‘working mum’ because, let’s face it, a mum’s work never really ends! But I do have paid job outside of wiping my kids arses and all the rest of the fun stuff that comes with having kids…   Except my work very definitely involves wiping kids arses! Sometimes I think I must be nuts to do what I do, but I can’t lie I do enjoy it. Most of the time! And the fact that I get to say “Have good weekend – oops, I mean rest of the week – guys!” when I leave on Wednesday afternoon makes it just that little bit sweeter.…

  • Baby Brain And Mum Brain Memory Lost

    Memory: Have I Lost Sight of What is Important?

    First of all; when does Baby Brain become Mum Brain? Amelia is 3 and Wills is nearly 10 months old, so does that mean I’ve moved onto the latter, or can I still blame the former for my memory shortcomings?!   I’ve always been a china shop’s worst nightmare, with my big clumsy size 8 feet, and tendency walk around lost in my own head (or a book pre-kids). And my memory has never been the greatest, I’ll admit. After I had Amelia, I definitely suffered with Baby Brain, often forgetting vital baby items when we went out, as well as losing things nearly daily. It gradually got better, until I had…
