Although I’ve been blogging for over a decade I would no way declare myself an expert: in my opinion there’s always more to learn and ways you can better yourself. But I have learnt a couple of things on my long journey that has taken me through the land of online diary writing.
When we go away as a couple now – just the two of us – there’s a whole host of reasons to get excited.
In all honesty I didn’t think Hux and I would ever get this far and still be breastfeeding: 3 months and counting. I didn’t set myself any goals – I didn’t want the pressure – and I promised myself that if the pain of it outweighed the positive aspects that I wouldn’t feel guilty about switching to formula.
It’s somewhat of a tradition in our house that Friday is a bit of a fun day. Being a stay-and-work-at-home mum means the days can get rather repetitive and all blend into one if there is no weekend fun to look forward to (especially because my husband works lots of weekends) so it’s great to plan mini parties to get excited about.
When we went to Madrid a couple of weeks ago the number one item on my list of things to worry about was flying with two young kids. I’m a nervous flyer at the best of times and I was convinced that Elfie would run riot through the aisles of the plane and Hux would scream his way through the flight.
I was completely wrong; it was actually a relaxing and enjoyable experience.
Despite this little ball of chub repeatedly waking me up all night because Mummy I don’t like my bed, I want to sleep in yours, his little gummy smile is still a delight to wake up to. I guess I can sleep tomorrow night?
Today is Huxley’s conception anniversary.
Our house layout is slightly quirky in that our master bedroom and bathroom is downstairs with all the other bedrooms and our study upstairs. I like to say this is awesome because we don’t hear babies crying in the night (jokes, of course we have a baby monitor) and is slightly annoying when you’re up and down stairs for whatever reason but mostly it works for us.
A little while ago Pregnancy and Birth magazine asked on Twitter if there were any mothers with young babies who wanted to test out baby changing bags. As I change so many bums these days I list ‘poo’ as one of my Facebook interests I responded wholeheartedly with a YES PLEASE.
