So the Christmas tree is going up the weekend. Traditionally it goes up on ToyShow night but with been a really cool co-parenter the big kid won’t be here so it will most likely be Saturday night. I’m dreading putting up the tree though. I can just see the boy climbing it and swinging one handed laughing at me like Chucky the Clown. I’ve considered all of these toddler proofing idea’s.

So you wants kids, lots of them, little cute ribboned munchkins running around your home all gleeful. Think you are ready? I’ve compiled a list of things you should try to prepare yourself for parenthood or toddlerhood, cause that’s when it all begins. It’s a breeze till they start walking and talking in my opinion. I think I’ve covered everything but as always if I’m missing something let me know in the comments below.
Realistically babies don’t actually need any Christmas presents but I’ll admit even on my first I spent a ridiculous amount on toys she never played with. I’ve made a list of toys, teethers and stuff I would buy again and again that will double up useful and as a lovely Santa gift if you need to put something under the tree especially if you’ve older kids. They’ll also make great gifts from friends, god parents and grandparents. Continue reading

The boy or ‘The Terrorist’, as I like to call him is nineteen months old now, a fully fledged toddler. I’ve mentioned before on my blog that I save his life on a daily basis.

Raising toddler boys is serious work. Continue reading
This morning was grand. No fighting. No arguing. We made it to school on time. The babies napped n’sync. I played some games with the one-year-old. Breakfast and lunch was eaten with no fuss. And I had a couple of uninterrupted coffees. Continue reading
Before I even start I should mention I have a high pain threshold, always have. Last year when Frankie was a few weeks old I broke my foot and walked on it for three days before going to the hospital. Then a few weeks later I split my head open because I’m an absolute disaster and went to my local pharmacy. Horrified at what the pharmacist seen, she recommended I go straight to hospital and I ended up with staples. Continue reading
When I had my baby I held him every second I possibly could. I skipped dinner so he could stay flaked across my chest. I ignored the post man and visitors knocking on the door because he looked too comfortable to be disturbed. I cancelled nights out as I preferred to watch him sleep. And I dreaded visiting friends and family because they robbed my cuddles. Continue reading

I tell you something – two kids are a breeze, like they practically rare themselves don’t they? Add one more to the equation and it’s a whole different world altogether.
She’s twelve weeks old now, and I still don’t have my shit together.
