A Grandparents perspective

Just want to say a huge thank you to my mum for writing this guest post for me on her perspective as a first time grandparent.

January family update!

Sebastian is coming up to a year and a half, he is learning new words every day, he now has about 30-35 words in his vocabulary, and has even started to put together some phrases, some of my favourites are; ‘please mama’, ‘bye dada’, ‘don’t care’, ‘I did it’, and the funniest has to be ‘ohhhhh bugger’, especially funny when he uses it in context! I have to fight off laughing when he shouts ‘ohhhhh bugger’!

Little-known facts about us

Some Little-Known Facts About Us I trained as a nurse for 3 years qualified and then realised it really wasn’t for me!

5 Tips for Doing Laundry Quicker with Kids

So, when it was just my other half and I we probably only put the washing machine on once a week and only had two loads of washing, whites and dark’s! Now we have two babies and I must have been doing between two and four loads each bloody day. No, that was far to much time spent doing laundry, so I thought, what the hell can make this easier for me so that I’m not spending two hours a day washing, drying, folding and putting clothes away? Aside from hiring someone, which was far to costly for our budget, … Continue reading 5 Tips for Doing Laundry Quicker with Kids
