Elijah is one!

Okay so it's definitely time for the obligatory 'where-has-the-time-gone' 'they-grow-so-fast' blog post. But really, where does the time go? I have a ONE YEAR OLD!!!!! I know I keep saying it but I just honestly cannot believe it. One whole year I've kept myself AND a baby alive. For one year I've had my life… Continue reading Elijah is one!

23 firsts in 12 months

Where does the time go? Elijah is one tomorrow. ONE!!?? This time last year I was hurled up in a ball in bed, thrashing myself around, two hot water bottles on rotation force feeding myself for energy waiting for my waters to burst. The sweet child of mine is currently fast asleep after yet another… Continue reading 23 firsts in 12 months

11 Things Nobody Tells You About Parenthood

Motherhood is weird as fuck.

You put the food on the table. You make sure they're clothed. You make sure they're healthy. You do the bedtimes,… Continue reading Being A Single Mum

Post Baby Sins

Before I had a baby, I was one of those non-parents who definitely did not know best. One of those 'oh I'd never let my future kid scream like that in public' and 'isn't that kid too old for a dummy' because let's face it, a few mates with kids and I had a motherhood degree. Right? WRONG. So… Continue reading Post Baby Sins

Weaning: The Right Way

I started weaning Elijah onto food the week he turned 6 months old, and it was so so stressful. I had this image in my head, that at 6 months old I'd start baby led weaning and all would be great! Well it bloody wasn't. Elijah is such a grabby baby, like every toy he plays with goes straight… Continue reading Weaning: The Right Way
