The Contraceptive Pill & Me

When I was fourteen I was prescribed the contraceptive pill to “help” with my periods. I’d been having periods from the ripe old age of eleven, and after three years of suffering from crippling pain and nights spent spewing my guts into the toilet, I had decided this womanhood malarky wasn’t for me. I hadn’t really considered the contraceptive pill (I was only fourteen and […]

I Wanna Be Where The People Are

Today I really wanted to write a post about how irritating it is when children REFUSE to sleep because they think that they are missing out on some great party – but that post would have literally been a rant about how Mini has refused to go to sleep the past few nights.

What’s In My (Nappy) Bag?

I seem to be clearing out my bag every two or three days and yet somehow its always full and I’m always left looking like an idiot searching for my purse or bus ticket whilst a queue forms behind me.

This always tends to happen in the […]

5 Ways My Kid Is Trying To Get A New Dad

This post was supposed to be about travelling on a train with a one year old, after our 5 hour (almost) train journey to Edinburgh for our holiday last week, but as luck would have it Mini-Me was as good as a child possibly could be with very minimal effort from me. I had nothing funny to write about and absolutely no advice to give. […]

20 Ways My Kid Has Woke Me Up

As an expectant parent one of the most common phrases you will hear is – “Get all your sleep in now, because you won’t get any when the baby comes!” And unfortunately, it is kind of true. (Although, the idea that you can somehow save up sleeping hours is nonsensical and annoying. I will sleep now, not because you told me too Belinda who works […]

The Unexpected Perks of Having a Small Child

Not to say that there aren’t any perks of having a small child, of course there are, but these are the ones that all perspective parents might not think of. 1- A reason not to go out. Don’t wanna go to that family friend’s Christmas party? Scared of the unwarranted sloppy kiss from your “favourite Auntie”? And not forgetting the awkward conversations about the non-existent […]

10 Gross Things My Kid Has Done

To me M is perfect, but she is just a baby and that means she does some things us mums would rather not talk about…well not me. Nearly every day M does something that amazes and astounds me, but 6/10 times those things are pretty gross. Here is a run down of the 10 best (or weirdest) ones.  1. She licked my foot. Actually she […]
