Today I write this post from the ‘breastfeeding chair’. The chair I spend most of my time in the middle of the night to try and soothe my crying baby. Tonight I HATE this chair. Tonight I wish I had never started breastfeeding or gone on for this long. As you may know, Aria is […]Read More Day 256 of motherhood
So for a lack of any better ideas on blog posts I have resorted to writing a diary post of how my day is going. Although, I do think this could lead to a lot more entertaining content, but we shall see…. Dear Aria, Today you have driven me bonkers! There has been a lot […]Read More Dear Diary… day 255 of motherhood
“I’m really going to make sure I make the most out of my maternity leave”. Next joke… don’t get my wrong, the first couple of months I made sure our weeks were fun filled and we were out of the house pretty much everyday. But now… our days are pretty much playing on the rug […]Read More Famous last words
At the moment I am Mummy. But I seem to have forgotten I am also Holly, a wife, a daughter, a granddaughter, a niece, and a friend. Having a baby just consumes your whole life. You are always referring to yourself as Mummy so that is who you are. When your baby is this young, […]Read More Who am I?
Even if it is only temporarily, Aria has been sooooo much better to settle at night time. No more crying when we put her in her cot, no more crying when we leave the room. A happy, content little munchkin who is soon off into the land of nod! “How long will that last?” I […]Read More Order is restored…
The funny thing about the ‘newborn fog’ is that you have no idea you are in it until you’ve come out of it. Everyone warns you how the first few weeks will leave you feeling confused and tired, but there really is nothing to fully prepare you. The interesting thing is, for me, it wasn’t […]Read More The newborn fog
Facebook is dangerous. There I said it. Since embarking on parenthood I’ve been joining lots of different ‘support’ groups, to speak to other mums and to take my worries away if I ever have any. But in all honesty? The majority of these groups just fill me with more worry, and I’m pretty sure it’s […]Read More #MumLife: The mum world of social media
So, when people talk about mum guilt they are normally talking about the guilt they feel surrounding their children. But I’m not going to talk about that type of ‘Mum Guilt’. The type of mum guilt I have been feeling is in fact, for other mums! Since Aria has been born, in all honesty? I […]Read More #Mum Life: Mum Guilt (But not the type you’re thinking of)
So Aria is 6 weeks old now, and let me tell you. I have learnt quite a bit in the last few weeks! The biggest thing I have learnt though, is that I have literally no idea what I am doing! Okay, that’s a bit of an over exaggeration. I know the basics. Make sure […]Read More #MumLife: I have no idea what I’m doing!
Here is the first post for my new ‘baby related series’ titled ‘#MumLife’. I hope you enjoy this post, and the many more I am sure to write, as I embark on this crazy journey that they call motherhood! So Aria is 3 weeks old, and let me tell you… it has been an adjustment!
