Parental wine night

Some nights you just need to sit back and reflect on the challenges of parenting. The wins…and the losses (be honest we all have them) so we have started a weekly de-brief! You have all heard of the mummy blogs. The endless narration of parenting from a maternal point of you (and I love them…

Things I’ve learnt about being a twin parent!

The practicality of parenting twins is a very different in reality from what you think it could be. 2 kids growing up together, sharing everything, never alone…it sounds so poetic! And I am reassured by other twin parents that there comes a point in time where it gets easier! However, it is certainly different in…

Double Take…….You said what?

“Argh….” I cringed as I rolled over in the middle of the night….this is getting ridiculous I thought! Something is not quite right here! I’m 2 weeks into knowing that I’m pregnant, that makes me nearly 6 weeks,  a complete surprise…I have no idea how it’s happened (no not in that way! I did pay…

Lean on me…..

So you’ve probably had a second or 2 by now to process the fact that you have not just urinated on a stick and shoved it in your partners face AND you have just discovered the BIGGEST secret in your life and whether you are 3 weeks (like i was) or 7 weeks you’re now…
