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!
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
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...

On … Continue reading FUN WITH DUNELM FOR WHEN IT’S TE’PEEING IT DOWN THIS SUMMER
Recently downloaded the new Ed Sheeran album and got a certain song stuck in my head, which, as it happens, lent itself quite nicely to a parenting parody. Sleepless nights, Tom Hardy, group peeing, Spanx, and Dairylea - here we go... First video up on my new 'Tired 'N Tested TV' channel - more in the … Continue reading Smell of You – A Parenting Parody
What to expect, when you're done with the expecting... So, you're knocked up. Congrats. No doubt you'll have shelled out a small fortune for NCT classes to help you prepare (or so you can find like-minded local mums to get post-natally pissed with) and you're now feeling a little more informed about childbirth. But this … Continue reading The After Birth

Want to earn some mega brownie points, or at the very least, an hour off having to watch that painfully annoying little piggy? If you want to put smiles on little faces, without putting holes … Continue reading Peppa’s Pancakes
