I’m not long in this parenting game but it’s definitely thought me a thing or two in these short few years. You’ll never piss in peace. You’ll never eat a whole meal by yourself. Someone is always hungry. An ass will always need wiping. And you will find yourself being the parent you said you never wanted to be. (more…)

Remember when I said I’d blog more often, I lied. Yeah, I’ve written about days out and stuff but actual blog posts are pretty non-existent at the moment. It’s just hectic, I don’t know my arse from my elbow most days. It’s got to the point were the Big Kid has stopped asking to have friends over ’cause I’ve got a pile of washing stacked up behind the bedroom door that’s almost as tall as herself. (more…)
As a mum with kids who have a room full to the brim with toys, I try to avoid gifting plastics to others at Christmas and it is exactly what I’ve done again this year. I love gifting fluffy pj’s, festive jumpers, slippers and anything to keep cosy through the winters months myself, who doesn’t? Each year I also buy the kids festive knits or dresses, it’s almost become a little tradition and this year was no different. We’ve teamed up with F&F to share some of their festive pieces in store this season and it’s been most probably one of my favourite little sprees of the year. The kids stink of Christmas. (more…)
I’d love to start this by saying all was grand but in reality, it wasn’t. It all started the day of the storm. Joe was home, dinner was on and by dinner I mean I added sauce from a jar to a big bowl of pasta I made that morning in case the electricity went. It didn’t, thankfully. (more…)
We’ve soldiered through many a sickness in this house. We’ve had everything from measles to hand, foot, and mouth. I always saw the light at the end of the tunnel.
Then Saturday happened.
I will never forget Saturday for as long as I live. (more…)
I’m sure you’re all aware by now that our family unit is on our own little eco journey. To date we use cloth nappies, we compost, we use reusable water bottles, buy second-hand toys and clothes and recycle them too. I avoid chemicals where possible and I’m currently teaching my kids about saving energy and water. (more…)
We received a finger licking food box of Organix Apple Rice Cakes, Tomato Slices, Sweetcorn Rings and Carrot Sticks for ‘Kenzie to try out’ last month and unknownst to Organix, these particular treats are cupboard staples in our house, she LOVES them. (more…)
I’m not even joking with you when I say I started writing this post back in March. I use to love writing these posts and recording our family updates and being honest I don’t even know why I stopped. Time maybe, it’s has been really hectic – when is it not? Kenzie’s on her feet RUNNING around, mumbling words. She started just before she turned 11 months and there was no stopping her no matter how much I tried. (more…)
I originally shared this over on Facebook and Instagram as the week flew away with me but I’ve decided to share it here too, to document it to be able to read back on in years to come. Here is the aftermath of Kadie’s unplanned home birth. (more…)
Yesterday we had a wonderful day in Tayto Park, kids in their element as per usual, running wild and free. Me on the other hand, I was exposed to a vile human being and was told to ‘have some more respect for yourself’ as I fed my one-year-old. (more…)
