Motherhood mojo
I've noticed lately that I'm a very different parent to F than I was when O was his age, and I'm not really sure if that's down to how different they are (and they really are VERY different) or the fact that I've kind of found my motherhood mojo. I mean, th...

Having kids will change your life
There's nothing that has the power to change your life quite so much as becoming a parent. Whatever life was like before you had kids, I can guarantee you that you won't even recognise it once they arrive. The short list of things that having a baby changes...

Down the rabbit hole
TRIGGER WARNING: This post is about death and loss. Please keep yourselves safe. Last May, one of my oldest friends lost his girlfriend suddenly and silently. His story is not for me to tell, but I remember with sick clarity the moment his text came through...

Valentine's Day with kids = ZERO ROMANCE
Valentine's Day becomes a totally different animal when you have kids, doesn't it? If I'm completely honest, I've forgotten what the last few were like, but I do remember the first one. My husband (then boyfriend) was incredibly excited (I don't know) and w...

The Great Conjuntivitis Epidemic

The "Motherhood Challenge"
Today I am taking on the "Motherhood Challenge". And by taking on, I do NOT mean taking part. I'm not on Facebook, so I've only heard about this new fad through other people and my husband has shown me what it entails. For those of you who don't know, the M...

The post of not coping
This is a warning: I'm going to be brutally honest today. If brutal honesty isn't your bag, look away now. I am OVERWHELMED. Everyone in our house is sick with a cold virus, including me. The kids aren't sleeping and need painkillers and cough syrup adminis...

A post in favour of routines
Before I had kids, I didn’t realise that routines were
such a controversial, touchy subject. But apparently they are, so I’m going to
out myself in this post as a routine aficionado. I love routines. I’m a routine
junkie. “What’s happening next, Davina?” “I...

Is It Just Me?
I’m looking at women’s magazines today after a conversation
I had about them with my husband last night. There might be a bit of my usual
parenting content, but it’s mostly just muted outrage. Let’s start with Mother &
Baby, since I always intended for this...
