We’ve known our days in Dubai have been numbered for a little while now. A combination of work projects coming to an end, and a desire to be closer to family with two small children under our wings means that we’re moving back to the UK. This week! We’re so sad to leave, but with … More A Privilee Life
The wonderful world of little people is a crowded place. Crowded in the sense that there is an overwhelmingly large array of brands, products, lotions, potions, gadgets, safety gear and more to baffle and bemuse new parents. My husband and I did, almost literally, go crazy with the baby gear first time around. We spent … More In Love With…Stokke!
Millie just past her six-month mark. Six months! Her baby year is flying. Yet I knew it would happen… Having done this whole baby thing before, I’ve come to learn that second-time parents are gifted with at least some preemptive wisdom about how things are about to go down. First thing first. You absolutely feel … More Capturing The Newness – Our Shoot With Sophia Mattia Photography
As any frequent reader of this blog will know…I love a good bit of baby wearing. In fact, I’d quite literally say that its helped keep me sane through my days with two Velcro-babies! From easing baby reflux, to getting little FOMO babes off to sleep (Zachy), to having my hands free to just do … More In Love With…Luxe Carriers
Oh, the hazards of parenting!! I recently buggered my foot/ankle in an entirely ungraceful fashion. How? By running up the rather solid marble staircase in our villa to retrieve my hysterical 3 year old. I thought he had morbidly hurt himself somehow with the screams, but apparently he was just sad to accidentally wake up … More No Rest For The With-Kid
Because…an easy ride is for the weak! #1 – Thou Shalt Kick-Off In The Car Well, there’s no time like the present. Start as you mean to go on and show those parents who’s boss! All that threenage energy has to go somewhere, so why not unleash it in an unholy temper tantrum when Mummy … More The 10 Commandments Of Flying…When You’re A Threenage Hellraiser
Baby-wearing. Wearing my baby. I love it! It’s something I did from Zachy’s very earliest days (after I realised that he was NOT the type of baby happy to be put down AT ALL!) At first it was for the convenience with him, and then it was for the pleasure. I loved keeping him close, … More Ten Reasons I Love Baby Wearing
This post was originally called ‘Things I Can No Longer Do As A Mother Of Two’…but the above title just seemed way more accurate, because, man! A trip to the bathroom is a planned and meticulously executed family affair right now, whereby, WE ALL GO! It’s on the one hand hilarious how mundane tasks (and … More My Kids Won’t Let Me Wee!
It’s Zachy’s 3rd birthday in August. I know – I still can’t quite believe my baby boy is almost 3. How?! He is growing rapidly, and so is his awareness. He seemed so excited by the Christmas just gone, and this time around, he seems to know that his impending birthday is a special day … More In Love With…ImagineMe
Picture the scene. You’ve been up several times feeding the baby that night. She enjoys her final feed (phew) at around 4:30. You drift back off to sleep, hoping to get a few extra Zzzzz, while also being mildly relieved that the night is almost over. Nights are tiring and fear-inducing with a new baby. … More Screen Time… Sometimes It’s Needed
