Super heroes or stupid…we took our twoddlers to dinner!

I love it when I read those comments by mums like ‘it’s easy going out with kids’, ‘don’t let it change you!’ Because I think one of 2 things. Either you have really f@cking easy kids in which case GO YOU! Or you are one of those nauseatingly positive people! Of which, much to the…

Makeup+toddlers don’t mix – operation clean up!

I’m pretty sure that when you read page one of chapter one of any parenting book it probably starts with observations like: ‘Don’t leave child unattended’ or ‘don’t leave child around water or in a car’ or maybe even ‘remove any hazards from child’. I wouldn’t quite know because upon finding out I was having…

Kids parties are an endurance sport…

Holy crap I feel like I have just stumbled home from 4 days at a day/night festival where I quite clearly have not slept, have drunk way too much and been dancing like it’s 1999! Having said that I’ve never been to any kind of rave party so I don’t really know but I kinda…

A Tale of Twins – Part 4

Once again I find myself alone, staring at the ceiling of a hospital room. This time there is nothing but stoney silence. It’s a weird silence. An unknown silence after the chaos of the last 24 hours…I’m not sure what to think. I’m full of emotions and my mind is racing at a million miles…

A Tale of Twins – Part 3

I stare around the completely dark room. My heart is pounding at a million miles, my head throbbing and I’m trying to re-trace what happened? I can hear babies crying, mothers babbling and as my eyes begin to focus I can see a curtain and dull lights above it. I hear a lady coughing loudly,…

The Tale of Twins – Part 2

It was a beautiful Monday morning as we made our way over for another scan. Three weeks in hospital and I was starting to feel like I ran the place. Over all my mood was down, this was never how I imagined my last weeks of pregnancy to be. I always thought I’d be swanning…

Sometimes getting out isn’t the best idea!

There are a couple of things that I have learnt since becoming a twin mum. The first is that the simplest of every day tasks can become an almost impossibility. The second without fail something will go wrong! Simply put that is why this year I have found myself replicating a turtle cross snail and…

A night with newborn twins!

Urgh…my subconscious mind is rattled again. I can feel my conscious try and fight it. “No you are imagining it…..it’s not true….it’s in your mind” My conscious mind becomes more alert and low and behold the gentle muffles of a stirring child can be heard in the background. A few stand alone cries, they could…

Going green for premmies – a prem tale!

If you asked me 10 years ago if I wanted kids, like every young adult my answer was yes. Like all people though, the reality of pregnancy and child birth was a vague thought, I really had no idea what I was in for. Fast forward to January this year and the early arrival of…

I haven’t pooped in days!

Well sorry, but I just had to tell someone! You see this is just an example of something NO ONE ever told me could happen after pregnancy! Seriously, it may be the most AMAZING process known to man kind, and I’ve gotta admit it’s bloody awesome, BUT, perhaps pregnancy should come with somewhat of a…

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…
