The Perfect Mum

We all wish we could be the Perfect Mum, but the reality is very different. Just ‘Good Enough’ is perfect enough.

The Dream –

Your Breastfeeding, making home-made meals, your house is spotless, you’ve lost all the baby weight, have a full face of make-up and a new hair-do. You’ve taken up a new hobby that’s always interested you and attend mummy meetings and baby groups.

Your new bundle of joy is wonderful he/she is a baby that sleeps all night and…

What I've Learned About Breastfeeding

Little B is almost 3 months old. That means every single day, multiple times a day, I've put her at my breast to feed and nourish her. After the first few goes at it, you tend to get to know the ropes and it becomes second nature. Here are six things that I've learned from my very short time breastfeeding.

It can hurt

But then it gets better! For the first 6 weeks or so, every single latch made me wince in pain.…

RELAX! MOVE OVER THE PERFECT MUM – WHY TRYING TO BE PERFECT IS NO GOOD FOR ANYBODY



In today’s world, we have very high expectations of ourselves. We’re always shooting for the stars, obsessing about this, that or the other in that everything-has-to-be-just-so kinda way. Yet how many of us have uttered the words “there’s no such thing as…

Ultimate Checklist – How Much Does It Cost To Raise A Kid?

Seeing babies and young children with their parents everywhere you go may tempt you into wanting a child of your own. But the question is, can you really afford to raise a child, at least at this point in your life? Consider your own needs, as well as the needs of your future offspring, and figure out if you can fulfil all of those needs before deciding to start a family.

The good news is that you certainly don't have to be rich to have the family of your dreams. There are smart ways…

9 Ways Raising Babies Is Like Raving, Baby

So Ibiza has been in the news this week as a number of b-list celebrities jet out for some richly deserved look at me-time.

After I’d got over the envy of the perfect tans (I may be catching the sun on maternity leave, but my bright-white-foot-wide-nursing-bra-strap-marks make my arms look like they’ve been designated laybys by the Highways Agency), I was also forced to face the realisation that now I’m a mum I WILL NEVER GO RAVING AGAIN.

It doesn’t matter that the last…

Happy Mother's Day by Silverbird Family

www.HappyMothersDayIsEveryday.com is a youtube video that can be given to any mom. The message says, "I love you mommy" from any child.

People would not exist if it were not for Mother. Even I did not understand why my Mother made such a fuss over me when I was child, but now that I have children of my own, I certainly understand what my Mother went through with me.

This is a wonderful fun calypso reggae style song and once…

Manners

So rapidly blossoming is her vocabulary that all swearing, of even the lowest level, must be muttered through bitten off lips for fear she will clasp her flapping lugs about its profanitous phonemes and spit them, some three hours later, at an unsuspecting stranger in Tesco.

Stuck Record

My musical tastes are fairly eclectic.

In the right mood, I can enjoy Frank Sinatra, Green Day, Aqua. I know certain Disney soundtracks off by heart (the cool ones, not just The Little Mermaid) and I am more than happy for my Micra to screech onto Morrisons car park with Joe Dolce blaring. Gilbert O'Sullivan, Spice Girls, Queen, Dizzee Rascal, June Carter Cash, T'Pau; if it's one of those days, they're all fair game.

Yet never, ever, have I felt the urge to belt out the theme tune…

Betty's Birthday

Betty is one year old.
And I, unsurprisingly, am not at my target post natal weight. Bloody Domino's.
On the plus side, there has been a notable improvement on the condition of my genitals when compared with this time last year (my undercarriage now in fine fettle - incontinence and raging haemorrhoids aside - thanks for asking.)

Ideas and Bus Stations

We went for a walk in Lymm. 

Lymm's posh. Posey. No dog poo about. A bit la-di-da. 

The sort of place where you tell people in work you went for a walk - because just by having been there, you must by association, a Good Person. Their bus stops look like this:

The bus stops by us aren't wooden - there are a garish yellow tubular metal. Which means they aren't burnt to the ground, and as added bonus, you have the opportunity to receive a quick lesson in the most fashionable…

Night Terrors

I know, FOR A FACT, this sort of thing does not happen to everyone.
But, please God, tell me it happens to a least a very occasional few; even the tiniest, most minute, mentally scarred, esteem bereft, negligible fraction of the world population - so I know it isn't just me.

'Nursery'

I should be looked after by my own Mother or at least by my Nan, who has been bailing Mum out a couple of days a week since January. I should not be foisted upon the well-intentioned, stimulating, encouraging, highly qualified educational professionals she so heartlessly ditched me with. Sure, I've made friends with groups of engaging, amusing, wholly congenial children of my own age. One of them tells really funny jokes, and I don't know any yet, well, except the ones he told me.…

Nursery Practise 2

Clearly the excitement of returning/the opportunity to break her mother's heart prevented her from having her lunchtime nap, so, shattered and unable to fight it any longer, she finally dozed off in the back of the car on the way there, at exactly 13:27 - three minutes before she was due inside the building. Good stuff. I plucked The Poop's lolling body from her car seat, and cuddled her, head on my shoulder, fast asleep, across the car park. …

Wearing Shades

1) Select a frame which suits your face shape and personality. Sure, you want to come across as quirky and fun, but at all costs, avoid an 'Elton John' inspired selection. Comparisons to the camp, wigged up, ageing pop star are inevitable, regardless…

Happy Blogday Birth

It's funny this blog. And not just the side-splittingly hilarious sort of a quick 'ha ha' funny (although, *mwah* thanks for noticing); but funny odd.

Every day, it's there. Hanging round like an eggy trump that refuses to waft away. Mithering me while I'm trying to load the dishwasher ("what you gonna write about?"), while I'm eating my tea ("what you gonna write about?), while I'm fobbing off the Avon lady ("what you gonna write about? Eh? Well? You've had all day,…

Parting

I have just discovered, while towel drying (incredibly carefully) the seven follicles atop The Poop's pate, that seemingly over night, she has sprouted enough hair to HAVE. A. PARTING.

Baby Book 2

There it is. Amid the pile of 'Stuff I'll Get Round To Shortly'. You can just see it, peeping out from beneath the unwritten Christening 'Thank You' cards that should have gone out in April. 

Let's have a look inside it. Yep. Untouched since that February post.

This, ladies and gentlemen, categorically and undeniably proves I'm the carefree, cool, nonchalant, easy going mother I always knew I could be. Kerchiiiing! It might even mean I'm not a weirdo…

Nursery Practise

She would be upset. I knew that. After almost a year of my daily guidance, love, support and tuition, being left in the care of lesser human beings was always going to be a shock to her system. Still, the trade off for not being in my sublime company is the opportunity for her to become more adaptable, mature, sociable and have greater confidence in her own abilities. Okay, so it's not a fair trade, but again, that's another life lesson that'll stand her in good stead. Turns out abandonment…
