When you are a parent some things happen that can only be described as Sod’s Law, so here is a short list of Mummy and Daddy annoyances!

  1. Children only get really ill when the doctors is shut!
  2. A child who normally sleeps through anything will wake at the sound of the second child crying in the night, meaning you have to deal with two at the same time!
  3. The morning your child/ren sleep in till 9, you are wide awake at 5.30am
  4. The only drinks that get knocked over are dark coloured ones – light coloured non-staining ones are perfectly safe!
  5. You child will love the one TV programme you really really dislike!
  6. The children are up all night the one night you really need to sleep because you are up early for a meeting/presentation/important appointment
  7. You get an invite to the super duper ‘should not be missed’ party the one day you can no way get a babysitter!
  8. Your child/ren will inevitably want what they can’t have – the sandwich feeling you don’t have in, the Zingzillas when it’s not on, sleep when you are visiting people!
  9. The only toy they will want to play at 5 in the morning is the drums!
  10. The moment you get a moment to yourself, there is that much to do you don’t know where to start, and by the time you get going the children are back/awake/needing attention etc…….

The Nautilus has landed!

I have been selected as a tester for the new GRACO Nautilus Carseat (Group 1-2-3), you will be able to follow my families’ journey with it here, twitter and more!

Once upon a time there was a family of four, they were selected to try out a carseat and it all began when a big box was delivered! It was like Christmas had come early – Mummy was excited at the prospect of a new item to test, Daddy was geared up to set about fitting his new ‘gadget’ and the two year old was soooo excited about his new chair that had a space for his drink!!! The baby was not so bothered by the whole thing, drifting in and out of sleep – well she is only 12 weeks old so can be excused!

So the package was opened and the delightful looking chair was revealed, Mummy’s first thought was that it was big, but actually the term should of been grown up! It is no bigger in bulkiness than the group 1 chair already used and this one covers group 1, 2 and 3 (It goes form 9 months old to 12 years!). It just looked more like a seat than a baby chair!

The two year old is very impressed and can’t wait to get it in the car to use!

Look out soon for a blog about fitting and our first journey with it!!!

Dear Hubby

I just wanted to let you know that you are a fantastic Daddy, from the moment we had our gorgeous son you took to fatherhood like you had been doing it forever, he is two now and has a beautiful baby sister who you are just as great with!

After we had ID I was very poorly and you were amazing, always on hand to help, to take on the duties when I was too tired and I have to say the way we tag teamed the night-time nappy changes and feeds was fab! This time with Baby E you are just as great, I am better this time (and E sleeps through!) but I still wouldn’t be able to cope without you!

The last three and a half years have been weird, we have had some amazing things happen (the wedding, the births of the children) but, there have been some really tough times, you have been the rock for me and the kids, even when things were less than ideal, it’s been hard but we have stuck together, we will keep on fighting and I know as a family we can get through anything – it may just take some time!

We have recently come to the end of an era, times are a changing – this is a new beginning and it is so exciting!

Anyway, we love you, enjoy your day!

Happy Father’s Day to a wonderful Husband and a AWESOME Daddy!
