All in The Spilt Milk

Boob Out And Singing Moana

Yesterday I achieved the impossible. I took Noah and Winnie out all day by myself to London. We went to my beautiful friend Emma’s house to play with her little ones. This part was fine, traffic on the M25 sucked but both babies slept for the worst of it so I got a few minutes to sing along to grown up songs instead of Moana on repeat.

Today is one of those ‘falling through parenting day’s. I call them this because it literally feels like no matter how organised you try to be or how nicely you ask, you are just not going to get the playgroup that starts at 9:30. Ha! Even if it was PM I think we would struggle to be on time!

Good Days Are Rare But They Exist!

Yesterday I woke up and Noah was in a lovely (not argumentative) mood, his cup was full of love because I left his bedroom gate open so he could go and cuddle nanny when he woke up. This made a huge difference to his happiness, more so than I realised. He was cuddly and helpful and generally a breath of fresh air compared to his usual morning self.  It kicked the day off to a calm start, which is very needed in our house.

Get Them Outside!

When toddlers get too much to handle and the living room feels like it is shrinking, it is tough to think of ways to  keep them entertained, especially when it hasn't stopped raining! Thankfully I remembered we have a lovely little green trail near our house. It's one of those places that you always enjoy more than you realise and end up saying classic lines like; "Why don't we do this more often" and "I always forget this exists". I drive past it every single day, usually several times and noticed recently that it is suddenly been overwhelmed with blackberries!
