The title says it all - we all get it (please say yes, make me feel better). Here are my trials and tribulations from the last couple of weeks which lead to a mountain of Mum guilt which normally explodes around 11pm when I can't get to sleep and my whole very pregnant body is … Continue reading Mum Guilt
By June we will have 5 girls and 1 boy - we are good with that, our boy has accepted that he will be top of the tree to a crew of girls. It always fascinates me how different boys and girls can be. Our first-born had the usual array of boyish and neutral toys … Continue reading The terrible 5s (No, its not a 2 the wrong way round)
Dear the 4 of you, I love this time of year, the garden is getting greener and we don’t need as many woolies – we’ve been caught out this year haven’t we? 4 Snow days off school in March! I love you very much, but weekends, and school holidays really are just fine for family … Continue reading To my 4 little friends on Mother’s Day….
Turn the clock back to when I was 18 (so, a very long time ago) - and I do what all trend followers do and have my belly button pierced. Of course pre-babies my tum was quite a feature (I thought), flat, toned and with the addition of a pretty sparkly stone on a bar, … Continue reading Sticky Plaster Please
I did it, I got to 20 weeks. For me, 20 weeks always seemed such a long hill to climb and frankly I've been feeling so poo that it's a very welcome point to reach. I'm half way!!! and in twin mummy terms, I'm over half way (my last twins were born at 37 weeks). … Continue reading The big gender reveal…. (apparently)
Am I showing my age on commercials, or can anyone else remember the Daz Doorstep Challenge? Well Daz, I'm ready..... the children have been to Forest School. 2 days of mud bathing with their friends in the pursuit of outdoor education. Ever heard of, or been to a forest school? Very trendy in education right … Continue reading Anyone remember the Door Step Challenge?
Teeth have been a very constant 'thing' in our house. The twins have been teething literally since they were born, and are currently growing their big back dudes. Their mood as you can imagine is far from rosie. Our 5-year-old persists with trying to find a wobbly tooth in the hope that she can join … Continue reading When you forget the Tooth Fairy.
A bit of a delay in sharing my musings with you, the Ball family got the winter sickness bug - our house has only just stopped smelling acidic and I swear I have never washed so many bed sheets in a week!! As I type Twin 1 has just thrown up all over her cot, … Continue reading Guest
Since the regular appearance of the Red Mist (see last blog) I've been trying hard not to lose it - after all, I kind of like my children and I would be totally lost without my hubby, so being a little nicer needed to happen. What has actually happened is; I went with the time … Continue reading Behaving like Goldilocks and a turn on the bus.
Does that title mean anything to you? Let me describe it to you. You are pregnant and today is a good day, you are smiley, joking, and happy however something upsets the balance, perhaps a knife in the fork tray, or a mug in the glasses (you get my drift, something really major) and this … Continue reading The Red Mist.
