Meadowhall today was filled with babies. I don't know if I'm a bit hyper sensitive, but seriously everywhere turn, there was a baby, and gorgeous babies too. I know, I know all babies are cute, these babies though super cute. And everywhere. I could literally feel my ovaries aching. (I've still not had a period … Continue reading Every where I turn, babies
So last night the boy confessed he was scared about the whole baby thing and needed me to do a test sooner rather than later. I've been putting it off. I don't think I'm pregnant. At all. I think I'm ridiculously stressed about money or the lack of it and that's causing the delay. Even … Continue reading Oh, baby.
As it comes to that all familiar time of month where I'm late - due to stress and eating all the crap, my mind can't help but wander to how I would tell the boy I was pregnant. Not satisfied with wafting a positive test in his face, I'm think of the ways I could … Continue reading Baby reveal ideas
This isn't as callous as it may seem. Delly has, for want of a better word, been a little shit today. That's probably putting it mildly. I'm talking that behaviour that would put you off having kids for life. Firstly I gotta say my kids are amazing. On the whole they are polite, kind, loving … Continue reading Bad mouthing the kids
This is a line from the musical Hamilton. I have yet to see it, but adore the soundtrack. This line always pops out at me. In hindsight if only I'd heeded it's advice. My 18 month plan had put me in a good place. A really good place. Just telling myself out loud it doesn't … Continue reading Talk less, smile more
By 9 o’clock this morning I’d almost written off the day already. My ex hasn’t got a car at the minute. His broke on Thursday, he rang me on Sat to ask if I could pick something up. I was in the Lake District but got my mum to go to my house and drop … Continue reading Ex stress, and impromptu trips.
I hate soft play during the school holidays. I avoid it like the plague. However today I've been coerced, and as I actually have a shit ton of work to do, I stupidly thought maybe I could crack on while they ran themselves ragged. Nope. Lincoln came to me crying. A boy had hit him. … Continue reading Soft play hell
So day 42, forty bloody two and my baby dreams have come to an abrupt end. I'm cursing my body, tender boobs, slight nausea I was convinced it'd happened. However no. Laying in the tent this morning, I had one of this really good cries. Crying because however much I'd convinced myself I'm ok with … Continue reading Silly Cycle
So as we are all besties now I thought fuck it we can have a personal post. Maybe some people sending me some positive vibes is what I need. Quick back story both me and the boy have kids from previous relationships. My three. His two. His two are older. Teenagers. Mine are teeny babies. … Continue reading TWW
Linc just got stung by a wasp. And was hysterical. I’ve never been stung by a wasp and judging from his reaction I never ever want to be. However this is not the point of my post. The point is I lost my cool. Despite what you may think. I am a very laid back … Continue reading Silly wasps
