It's funny, with Jack I was super keen to get him onto solids - it was almost a competition between all the other mums as to who was going to have their kitchen pebble dashed with Weetabix first. Come second baby, I was secretly hoping I'd be able to keep her on milk until she … Continue reading Weaning Week – Competition!
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have welcomed their third child into the world – with Kate birthing a healthy 8lb 7oz baby boy, after a five hour labour. The joyful news was gratefully received by hundreds of waiting journalists - most of which silently thanked Kate’s efficient ‘third baby faff’ for sparing them from … Continue reading One has split One’s V to her A…
Ahhhhhh, Mother's Day... your one day out of a whole year to put your feet up, relax, and not shout at the children so much your angry vein pops out. Isn't it lovely to be so loved, and appreciated by your children and other half? All the feels... https://youtu.be/hTGH0nbpOWI
1) Hat. A necessity for any knackered, greasy-haired mum on a cold morning. Faux fur bobble is a MUST. Say bye-bye to the Batiste and hello to the hiding of shit hair in this winter playground essential. Has to be replaced by actual washing of hair come summer time. 2) Padded coat, fur hood. If … Continue reading How School Run Mum Are You?!

Hi, I'm Sophie and I've birthed a 10lb 10oz baby. A war story I'm now incredibly proud of, but that hasn't always been the case... As a nation we're obsessed with weight - how fat someone is, how thin someone is - how much weight we're gaining, how much weight we're not losing. It sometimes … Continue reading The ‘Big Baby’ Blues
Evelyn is my beautiful, clever, happy / sometimes Devil incarnate toddler - who I love (along with her brother) more than life itself. Next week, we'll be celebrating her second birthday with a terrifyingly shit Peppa Pig cake I've cobbled together, and the whole Baby Annabel section of the Argos catalogue. But... Evelyn shouldn't really be … Continue reading #misCOURAGE
Wrinkles are my (fairly) new arch nemesis... especially the ones on my forehead - which are beginning to get so deep I'm worried I'll start finding things in there, like the TV remote, a cat, old coins - that sort of thing. My husband tells me not to worry - they're just 'laughter lines', but … Continue reading F**k You, Wrinkles
Holiday! Celebrate! Fuck off Madonna - you've obviously never been trapped on a Ryan Air flight for four hours with two screaming, head butting, slightly poo covered children who are hell bent on seat kicking, vomiting, and trying to fly the plane. With only a pack of soggy rice cakes, an iPad with 10% battery, … Continue reading The Family Vacay – Part One
A parody that might just have heads (and tails) wagging in agreement... I give you Moana Vs Millie: https://youtu.be/7z267cMIrc4 Pre kids, Steve and I thought it would be best for all concerned if we practiced keeping another living entity alive before trying our hand at child rearing (although the withered and crispy coriander on our … Continue reading You’re Welcome – When Puppies and Parenting Collide
