5 parenting things my husband does better than me

This could be one of the most painful blog posts I’ve ever written… You see the thing is, my husband is actually a really good parent and in many ways he’s better at it than me. (Obviously that’s because I do all of the worrying and the stressing for him), but the truth is he … Continue reading 5 parenting things my husband does better than me

There’s no place like home school

    “Woooo! Its half term!” I cried, as I crawled towards the end of Friday afternoon and closer to wine ‘o’ clock. We’ve made it half way through our second term, one more bit to go and I can just be ‘mum’ for 6 weeks of summer holidays.

Don’t judge me – Tales of the unexpected

As we all know, being a parent is an all-consuming, life changing job. It gives us purpose, a reason for being… and headaches.

As I write this, it feels like there is a tight band around my head, the more I think about it the tighter it becomes. My … Continue reading Maybe I’m Crazy – Dealing with anxiety, life and motherhood

“Poops win prizes” and other things I never thought I’d say

Let’s face it, none of us really knew what we were letting ourselves in for with this parenthood lark, all of those hypothetical children we were raising, pre actual children, had excellent reasoning skills and the behaviour of little cherubs. The harsh reality of parenting is obviously completely different. We find ourselves doing things we NEVER … Continue reading “Poops win prizes” and other things I never thought I’d say

I’m turning into my mother – and I couldn’t be prouder

“Aughhhh! I’m turning into my mother!” is a cry I often hear from despairing women, be it on their blog posts or when I’m out and about. (Yes, sometimes I do manage to leave the house these days!)  When I hear these words I often wonder what these women have endured to make them feel … Continue reading I’m turning into my mother – and I couldn’t be prouder
