I’m not *really* blogging at the moment because, you know, I just had a baby. But I wrote this little poem and thought I’d share it here. We are absolutely smitten with our gorgeous new addition and life with 2 under 2 is definitely keeping us on our toes! Despite the exhaustion and non-stop nappy changing, I feel so lucky to be the mother of these two wonderful boys.
I suppose I should start this post by apologising for the distinct lack of pregnancy updates. Honestly, there hasn’t been all that much to report other than me getting enormous (!) and that we have done a hypnobirthing course – which I felt deserves it’s very own post.

I bet 99.9% of parents have thought and said this multiple times when their children are young enough not to be talking properly. TM doesn’t say many words yet, certainly not accurately anyway! He is, however, always making plenty of noise and ‘chatting away’. Continue reading
As parents, I think we are often guilty of focussing on the things we wish we could do better and the things we feel guilty about. When the fabulous Pat from White Camellias came up with the #RockingMotherhood tag, challenging mum bloggers to come up with a list of 10 reasons why they are a brilliant mother, I thought it was a great idea. She kindly nominated me to join in and I have finally got round to doing so! It’s so refreshing to focus on what we are good at and proud of; we’re all doing a great job. Without further ado; here’s 10 reasons why I am rocking motherhood… Continue reading
