I Love My Mummy Tummy!

As Mother’s we’re always on our game when it comes for preparing for a wide range of surprises (both good and bad), we have eyes in the back of our head and we know better than most that we must always expect the unexpected. Well today, the unexpected happened and it took me a little […]

Preparing For The Toddlerpocolypse

I couldn’t give you an exact date of which I began to notice that my baby boy was suddenly a lot less baby and a whole lot more boy because, that’s precisely how it happened- sudden. With under two months to go until his first birthday, i knew that huge changes were inevitable. What I […]

Surviving Flu Season

‘Tis the season of red, runny noses, sore throats, coughs and sniffles, curling up in a huge woolly jumper on a dark Winters evening and indulging in a large mug of hot chocolate whilst you take a does of trash TV and hope you’re feeling better soon. That is, if you don’t have a baby. […]

Establishing Routine Saved My Sanity

I consider myself to be a Queen of organisation in most aspects of my life, plans, lists, structure and order are all familiar and very vital parts of my every day and I take a little pride in that. Okay, you got me.. that was the way of things and then I had a baby. […]

Baltic’s Sensory Room

This Valentine’s Day was our first one as a family and I wanted to go out and do something all three of us would enjoy but I couldn’t for the life of me come up with anywhere to go. The main issues I had were that we are incredibly bloody skint right now so going […]

I Swore I’d Never Be ‘That Mother’ Yet Here I Am

Over time, we’ve sort of developed a little inside joke about how Kaiber will never be one of those ‘sausage roll babies’ which is pretty much as simple as it sounds to any outsider not in on the joke. You see, here in the North it is a very common occurrence to exit a Greggs […]

We’re Back! But Where On Earth Have We Been?!

Wow. What a roller-coaster of a few months it has been for us. For those of you who follow our story, you will probably be aware that I took an extended break from blogging and Social Media to deal with some issues I have been struggling with mentally and to just invest some quality time […]

Happy Mama, Happy (er) Baby

My posts of late have been a lot less frequent and the tone in general when discussing anything in current time has been a little negative and just plain flat to be honest. It’s always ‘Kaiber is teething, he’s fussy, unsettled, not his usual happy self, fighting his sleep’ and all of those things are […]

It Was No Fairy Tale – The Hospital Stay (Our Birth Story Continued)

Once Carl cut the cord and my baby was finally moved from the warmth of my chest to be weighed, reality began to sink in and all of a sudden I was very aware of the fact that I was in a hospital having just given birth whilst at the time completely unaware of what […]

Clean Home, Clear Mind

I feel f-a-n-bloody-t-a-s-t-i-c. A far cry from the recent tone of my previous posts I am aware but it’s been a very different day than one I am now accustomed to. Today, I had an empty house with free rain to go cleaning crazy and believe me when I say that is exactly what I […]
