We all need a break don’t we?

The rush of love I felt when I saw my little girl yesterday was amazing. I did wonder how she’d be with me after I haven’t seen her for five days when I went off on a girls break away to Majorca. She has a problem with me leaving her for an hour, let alone […]

First day of school

It’s an emotional thing seeing your little ones go off to school for the first time. I knew that I would have tears, but I don’t really know why? Is it because it’s the end of an era, because they’re growing up so quickly or just pride in them? My daughter started today and I […]

Too young to have FOMO?

I was given what I think was a back handed compliment today, someone suggested I was too much fun and little un was probably creating because she thought I’d be having a bit of a party without her, haha. I mean can 5 year olds get FOMO?? Should I make our time together more boring […]

Can I go out tonight please?

I’ve got a problem and I could do with your help, please help me with this one. My five-year-old won’t let me go out! I’m a single mum with the sole care of my daughter, no weekends off, nothing, nada. So yes the problem is she won’t let me go for a night out, a […]

A world of worry

We welcomed a new baby to the family this week and I can’t get out of my mind how much it is a welcome to a world of worry. Worrying about them, people around them, germs, even the air around them. Worrying when you’re with them that you’re doing too much, that you’re doing too […]

Cadbury’s, stop making my eyes water

Oh my goodness, I’ve just lost it, at an advert for chocolate! Dairy milk have nailed it with this one! A little girl goes to the shop to buy a bar and pays with coat buttons, a plastic medal and a tiny unicorn toy. The shopkeeper gives her the chocolate and takes payment, giving her […]

Bleeding heck…

My four-year-old is doing a project at school about bodies, she’s obsessed with blood. She tells me on a daily basis, there is blood in our feet, in our hands, in our head, in our faces and in our tummies. When I fell over last week her only concern was how much I bled, it […]

The big issues

It’s inevitable that kids cry when they’re tired, hey, it’s inevitable that I cry when I’m tired, but at least it’s at a sad film or because I’ve broken my favourite wine glass, but the my 4 year old daughter really goes for it at the slightest thing. Within an hour today we have had […]

New Year’s Eve-what do you do?

I’m not a massive fan of New Year’s Eve, never have been, I think it’s for people who don’t normally go out and too much pressure to stay awake and smile, but I go along with it and mark it every twelve months. So, NYE-to go out or not? That’s the dilemma every year, when […]

The Christmas nightmare

Have you ever had a nightmare with kids presents? Did you get the wrong batteries or none at all and have to cope with a distraught child? Since last Christmas my 4 year old daughter has been going on about getting a hatchimal, but because they were last years ‘must have’ they were in the […]
