Weaning Week – Competition!

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 [...]

One has split One’s V to her A…

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.

My husband tells me not to worry - they're just 'laughter lines', but [...]

The Family Vacay – Part One

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, [...]
