Emily's First Day At Preschool


Oh Emily. How have we got to this day already, today was your first day at preschool. A day that I've been dreading and you've been excited about. I've never hidden the fact that I find it really hard to leave you, I hate it, and it makes me anxious and worried and gives me knots in my stomach. It's something I've been determained never to pass onto you, something that I never want you to have to experience or notice. I guess when you're bigger, and a parent yourself you will understand to some extent, but at the moment I'm sure you just think I'm embarrassing.

Family Memories, and Quitting Smoking


Growing up, I watched my grandad smoke, a habit I absolutely hated, and something that I knew I would never do, ever. I stuck to it too, I can happily say, I have never touched a cigarette in my life, and I think that is purely down to watching how hard it was for my grandad to quit. When he finally decided that he no longer wanted to smoke, he wasn't expecting it to be as hard as it was. I remember him constantly chewing gum to try and distract him and kick the habit. I'm proud to say that he managed to do it.

Siblings [April 2018]


Every month when I sit down to write these, I just end up staring in awe of how big you both have got, and how amazing your bond is. I always wanted a little girl, and I was lucky enough to end up with two, not just two, but two who are absolutely adorable together and the best of friends, and that couldn't make me any happier if I tried. You do have your moment of jealousy, but overall you two are pretty inseparable. 

Being An Adult Sucks Sometimes


I'm a little bit quieter than I normally am on here, and to be honest the reason for that is I just don't have much to say at the moment. I'm feeling a little bit down and lost. I'm trying to support my Grandma, and help her out with the things that she needs, and I've also been looking into preschool for Emily - which is a huge deal for me.

Paddling Pool Splashing


Yesterday was the hottest day of the year, naturally, I had to get out the paddling pool for the girls. Isabelle hasn't actually ever seen the sun or warm weather like this, even though she is a summer baby - it really did feel like we had the LONGEST winter known to man. Emily couldn't wait to get outside to play, I had actually cleaned out the sand and water table the week before in preparation for her being able to play out there. So it took me a matter of minutes to fill it all up.

Picnic In The Park


Sam and I tend to get a little bit of cabin fever, especially when the weather is nice. The girls love being outdoors, Emily especially and we don't have a garden, so when the warmer weather does come - we find ourselves going out more, or getting really frustrated that we don't have a garden or both. Sunday was the first day in a long time that we have had really nice weather, doesn't it feel like we have had the longest winter known to man? My poor summer baby doesn't know what the sun is.
