As a kid I loved snow. As soon as I caught sight of it falling from the sky I would be listening to the local radio in the hope of a snow day. As a child and teenager a snow day was bliss. A day off school to sit at home, watch television, drink hot … Continue reading Argh It’s Snowing… Again!
In the U.K. information is given to expectant mothers on bonding with your baby, especially within the first few hours after birth. Midwives explain the best way to do this is through skin to skin contact, which simply means placing the fresh, newborn baby onto mother's chest so their skin meets. That way baby can … Continue reading Bonding with baby
The first three months were a blur as we tried to establish routine. Each day we had a rota of who would help out with each feed. We relied heavily on my family as David's sister was also pregnant and needed the support from her parents. To say we couldn't have done it without them … Continue reading Twins – 1 year on
The beginning of 2018 did not go as planned. If you know me then you will know I am a planner. It's my one true talent. When I was younger and I would see my other siblings excel at music or sports and I would ask my parents what I was good at. "You are … Continue reading When Things Don’t Go As Planned
One of my favourite songs as a teenager was Baz Luhrmann's Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen). Released in 1999 I did not stumble across the song till 2005/2006. It instantly became a hit with me and my best friend. We even downloaded it and listened to it on our MP3s (I'm showing my age!) A … Continue reading Everyone’s Free To Wear Sunscreen
Over the past few weeks I haven't ventured out with all three kids by myself much. Don't get me wrong I haven't become a hermit, my personality wouldn't allow for that! I have gone to meet people for coffee or soft play dates. I have spent time with visiting family and met my brother at … Continue reading My Family – The Museum Exhibit
I am not really the blogging type. As a hopelessly hooked consumer of books, I far rather reading what others have to say, than subjecting others to my own thoughts - but Victoria has been persuasively asking me for some time to do a guest post and, given all she does for our little clan, … Continue reading Not All Fathers Wear Capes
"How do you do it?" Is a question we got asked a lot during the first year of the twins lives. I presume people would look at us with the twins in the double buggy and Finlay standing on the board and think we are juggling a lot. But I began to quickly realise the … Continue reading First Year Milestones… For Twins
This week is filled with baby milestones. The twins will turn 1 on the 5th November and Isaac has now moved into his forward facing car seat. We could no longer take the screams he was making while the other two looked happily out of the window! With the twins birthday fast approaching naturally David … Continue reading Do you want to have another baby?
I used to like checking in with my Timehop app to see what we had been up to “on this day” in previous years. I have to admit this past year I haven’t had enough time to check the app. I’ve been caught up in the twin fog. But I don’t need an app to … Continue reading A Year Ago…
