What To Expect When you have a Caesarean Section

April is Caesarean Section awareness month. I am no expert when it comes to Caesarean’s, however as both my children were born that way so I am going to share my knowledge. Pregnancy is a wonderful time for most women. The excitement of becoming a parent, a wonderful bundle of joy. I felt all of this when I was pregnant. I hadn’t really thought about labour, I knew it was going to happen so I didn’t dwell on it. As far as I was concerned I was going to accept any of the pain relief I was offered. When labour started I was a little bit excited. Most women ideally want a natural birth, however there are many reasons why people have a caesarean section. Not just because they are to posh to push! Emergency Caesarean Section There are many reasons beyond the woman’s control that means you end up having an… View Post

My Parenting Little White Lies

With parenthood, I’ve found myself to be in several situations where I have to stretch the truth to really get the point across. E getting too smart to fall for most of it but I will still use them on both the children as long as I can, Your teeth will fall out – So, your teeth can fall out if you don’t take care of them obviously. However I make it sound more urgent.  When sweet stuff has been eaten and I am telling them that we have to clean their teeth really well or their teeth will fall out. Yes, I love your singing – My daughter can sing but there are occasions when it’s a form of torture and I think make it stop while putting my finger in my ear. Then she’ll ask me if she liked her song I simply reply ‘yes sweetie, it was beautiful’. I don’t have anything… View Post

Wicked Uncle Review

When it comes to shopping for toys I always look online. One, for ease and secondly because there is a limited choice of shops that sell toys where I live. Wicked Uncle is a great website. They sell a great selection of weird, wonderful and different toys, not the sort you would see advertised on television. The website is really well set out, you can either search through different categories, gender and age. The age selection makes it really simple to find a toy that is age appropriate. I found shopping by age bought up toys I would never have thought about buying for a five year old – which is great. Each age range or category lists the most popular toys that are being bought on the website at the top. This is great if you are looking to buy something for someone and have no idea what to buy. Perfect… View Post

Eighteen months old

Eighteen months old today.  Halfway to two. Attitude: Check! Cutes: Check! It’s the combo of doom. J will stand at the front door and cry (or make this weird ehhhgh, ehhhgh, ehhhgh kind of cry/groan sound) to let me know he wants to go out. Then he will do the same sound when it comes to going back home and entering the house. Why so needy, baby? H wants what he wants but has no words to tell me. There was a time when “Eee! Eee! ” meant give me something but now it’s just ‘eh’ and pointing. I can’t decide whether it’s adorable or annoying. He likes to shake his drink bottle upside down, if I don’t have reflexes of a ninja the will then rub the water around. If this is on the high chair it isn’t a problem. Else where, it is just a mess. Baths – Yes! Changing… View Post
