Just a matter of weeks until these guys get to meet their little baby sister!
What the parent says: “I’m concentrating on something really important, ok? Let me finish this and I’ll be with you soon.”
What the child hears: “You need to tell me about the cornflake you just found on your sock? Well then, fire away! I can just completely start over what I’m doing here later. Seriously, it’s no problem - focus comes to me like a switch. This cornflake business is more important, so tell me everything I need to know about it. Everything.”
"Mummy, I think you’ll still be beautiful without your bump." <3
5 weeks away from having a baby girl, and I spend my Friday night wearing a purifying face mask and browsing Pinterest.
Someone tell me these things are connected…
Having one too many coffees is like having one too many wines - you know you’re past the point of no return but there’s no going back…
31 weeks through our third pregnancy tomorrow! Excite.
With our first we’d have ticked 812 things off our ‘1,000 things we have to do before the baby gets here or we won’t be prepared enough and the whole thing will be a disaster and we’ll be awful parents and our child will grow up knowing we were completely unprepared for their arrival and develop all sorts of psychological issues stemming from that and what if we don’t get them all done and I CAN’T BREATHE I THINK I’M GOING TO PASS OUT AGAIN’ list by now.
This time… what list?

Don’t hold back on those likes for my sake - I don’t see them as creeping, I see them as a symbol of solidarity in this crazy parenting gig ;-)

Oh, I have no problems there - my boys are the sweetest little guys and never drive me crazy!

It’s been a while since I had the pleasure of doing both the morning and afternoon school runs for our kids (at schools a bazillion miles from each other), so when I got the chance to re-live it yesterday I jotted down all the things I missed about it:

After stepping on *yet another* deadly piece of Lego last night I gave their branding a quick makeover so that it actually reflects the true nature of their product.
Hopefully the marketing team at Lego will take heed and go ahead and make these changes official.
