I use to blog when the kids napped, or when they were in bed. Now I’m napping with them or eating my body weight in crap. The blog is taking a noticeable landslide in the past week but bare with me, I’m sure I’ll have loads to be giving out about when we become a family of six in a short few weeks. (more…)

Due to a blood condition, I will never be allowed donate blood but I’m very supportive of the Irish Blood Transfusion Service (IBTS). Today is World Blood Donor Day and this week also marks Blood For Life Week (13th-17th of June) and with this in mind, I’ve decided to put together a little post in hope that anyone in a position to donate will consider donating, or will help pass the message on that the IBTS needs your blood.

Lovely bit of sun here in Dublin, and to top if off Daddy
had a whopper hangover and decided to take the day off. After a four hour nap with Frankie this morning, I was full of beams. Let’s go the beach I said. It will be fun I said.
It’s amazing what a bit of sleep can do for you. I feel like a new woman now that we have a solid routine, a strict one that I’m abiding too because as selfish as it might sound to some I’m reeking the benefits. There have been slip-ups of course but my kids have all slept in their own bed for naps and throughout the night. I won’t lie, I miss the cuddles something terrible but at 32 weeks pregnant I need the rest. Putting Kadie into her own room has been one of the best decisions we’ve made as a family in a long time.
During the rare heatwaves, my little babogs always seem to go on a food strike, and if I’m honest it stresses me out something terrible at times. I’ll try anything to keep them snacking, cool and hydrated, and these little healthy snacks seem to be working a treat. (more…)
The past month has been awful here on the sleep front. I’ve broken down in tears too many time to count in recent weeks due to utter exhaustion. Yesterday Joe and I agreed without argument (for a change) that it was time to give Kadie her own room – in hope she would settle better at night. Wishful thinking but we are at the stage now that we just need some sleep… (more…)
I get asked regularly how I do it, how I keep my reach, how I get to review all the cool stuff with the four kids, and I always reply that it’s because I absolutely adore blogging. It’s more than a just a hobby for me. In fact, right now it’s my job. I actually cannot believe I’ve just typed that but it’s true. I started this blog with nothing and built it with the help of google, other bloggers, conferences and Facebook groups. (more…)
Following my rather glowing review of Kadie’s beautifully crafted wooden keepsake box, I have a £35 Dust and Things voucher to giveaway to spend how you like… (more…)
Isn’t it magical how our bodies create tiny life? However in return, we succumb many obstacles. Obstacles I won’t miss that’s for sure. Here’s a list of things I won’t miss about being pregnant:
Lads, I have a new obsession and it’s not even 24hrs old. I’m piecing together my hospital bag over the next month and it got me thinking… Wouldn’t it be cool if there was a newborn nightdress type thing, and well there is. Thanks to my trusted Irish Parenting Blogger pals, namely www.theclothesline.ie. They exist in the name of bundlers. (more…)
