Why I Don’t Want More Children πŸ‘ͺ

I’ve always wanted 2 children, my idea of an ideal family has always been the traditional boy and girl. I’d thought of names, what school bags they’d have, imagined family holidays – all including 4 of us. Since having George this has changed – I can’t pinpoint it to one particular reason but I think…

My Goals & Dreams for 2020 πŸ’Œ

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2020 everyone! It’s time to wipe the slate clean and start a new year and new decade. It’s the perfect time to set some goals and aspirations for the next year – I’ve never been that good at sticking to resolutions but I think that I finally have the drive…

Enjoying Christmas with a Newborn | Blogmas πŸŽ„

If you’re going to be spending your first Christmas as a parent this year then firstly, congratulations! You’re in for a magical time while also being the most sleep deprived you’ve ever been – it’s weird and wonderful but can be a little stressful. As George is a November baby, he was only 4 weeks…

A Letter to my One Year Old

My beautiful George, I can’t quite believe that you have already been in our lives for a whole year; it seems like not that long ago you were a squishy little newborn that depended so heavily on me for everything (not that I minded). Now, although you still need me, you’re growing up to become…

1st Birthday Planning | AD [Gifted]

It baffles me that I’m even writing this post, how am I already planning my baby boy’s first birthday party?! I’d been wanting to do a dinosaur theme for a while but didn’t fully research where I was going to get everything from – thankfully I discovered Sparkles Giftwear on Instagram. They specialise in themed…

My First Year as a Mum

6-12 Month Baby Essentials

It’s been a while since I did an ‘essentials’ post and since George is now reaching a year old, I wanted to tell you about the items that have made the past 6 months a whole lot easier. It’s crazy to think that your essential products can change so often, is it really essential is…

Things I Hate About Being a Mum

Now, don’t jump to any conclusions. I love my boy and being his mum is the best thing I’ve ever done by a long way but recently I’ve been finding myself in more low moods about this whole motherhood journey that I’ve embarked on. No-one told me about how down you can get and that…

Bonfire Night with a Baby/Toddler

Bonfire Night. Before having a child this was a yearly event that didn’t require a military operation to plan; you could go to a local display or even go away to watch some spectacular sights. Now there’s a baby (possibly more than one) that you need to consider, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t…

Why Mum Friends Are So Important

Although we can have the most supportive partners, sometimes you need someone who you can vent to that gets it from a mum perspective. When I say ‘Mum Friends’ I don’t mean just any friend who is also a mum; I mean women who will make your motherhood journey easier and listen with no judgement….
