Just another Monday morning

7:52am: I open my eyes and squint at the clock. Shit, it’s almost 8am, how the hell did that even happen? At this point I would usually have been awake for several hours. The small one is asleep next to me, as per the last two – three? – weeks? …

Return of the germs: 5 ways to make sick days fun

I live in a cursed house. I swear that half of my blog posts are moaning about illness in some capacity but that’s because a) we are always sick these days, or that’s how it feels and b) being ill really sucks. I make a crappy sick person; even my …

Two small ones, one year on: How times have changed…

This time last year, I was just starting this blog. I had a six month old baby who had just learned to crawl and a feisty, chatty two year old. As you’d imagine (or can guess from the exasperated tone of my posts) it was hard work; I often felt …

Flying solo: One weekend of parenting alone

One hour and 17 minutes. That is how long I have been sitting in my children’s room, waiting for them to fall the f*ck to sleep. Specifically the small one. It is Saturday night, and it’s almost 8.30pm. By now I’ve basically read the whole of the internet and I …

No one likes a tired Whingelet

The big one went to her cousin’s for a “sleepover” last weekend. I say “sleepover” as by all accounts, not a great deal of sleep was had due to her waking in the night and demanding Peppa Pig. Wouldn’t get away with that at home, young lady (sorry guys). Daddy …

Happy Halloween…

So not only do we have to suffer the indignity of the clocks going back this weekend, but it’s also Halloween on Monday. Yup. Hold on to your pants. Back in those relaxing and hedonistic days before children I probably enjoyed Halloween as an excuse to dress up in something …

Me and my shadow: The clingiest kid in town

I’m aware I’ve done a lot of moaning about my son lately. I would apologise, but that is basically what this blog is for. I don’t make money out of it, it eats up the majority of my very limited spare time, it’s way more complicated than I ever anticipated, …
