I love it when kids don't know what something is called and, rather than ask me, make up a word themselves to describe what they mean. With Elisabeth we never really had this pleasure, she talked very early and never really said anything wrong. Jacob however, is the absolute master at this. He has always … Continue reading Mummy, I’ve got a sore yawn
Yesterday morning I was all ready to sit down and write a post about how tiring and not nice my day was on Friday. Being a mummy is the best things in the world and I wouldn't have it any other way, but there are days when you're so tired, when the kiddos are so … Continue reading Not so bad, considering
Wow, you know you've been busy when writing is one of your favourite things and still you haven't posted for 5 months! I know! Five whole months without as much as a word. Without trying to make excuses, the main reason I haven't been blogging is that we have had a lot of illness over … Continue reading I’m back!
Even though my two lovely kiddos look very much alike, they couldn't behave more differently if they tried. The most noticable difference at the moment is talking. Elisabeth never really did baby talk, she was almost silent until she could discuss the political situation in Africa (so to speak). She talked so well that when … Continue reading Where’s mamma?
The first time someone kisses you is always special. I remember the first kiss with my husband, it was in a nightclub in Clacton-on-Sea. This is 14 years ago and I still remember it as if it was yesterday. Elisabeth gave slobber kisses for ages when she was little (you know the ones that are … Continue reading The First Kiss
Me: Morning Jacob. Jacob: Wow! Me: Would you like a drink? Jacob: Wow! Me: Look Jacob, a dog. Jacob: Wow! Me: What would you like for lunch? Jacob: Wow! Me: Night night Jacob. Jacob: Wow! The boy is a genius 😂
Elisabeth: "Where are my nipples mummy?" Me:"Excuse me?" Elisabeth:"Where are my nipples mummy?" If I find out who is to blame for this they will be in serious trouble 🙂 This Tuesday Elisabeth didn't really want to go to the child minder, she was tired and wanted to stay home with mummy or daddy. But … Continue reading Conversations with Elisabeth 3
Me: 'What did you have for dinner at Jenny's today?' Elisabeth: 'Mash and beans and fish fingers.' - Me: 'Really?' - She actually had spaghetti 🙂 Me: 'You've grown so big!' Elisabeth: 'I'm not big, daddy is big.' Elisabeth: 'Daddy is a boy and mummy is a lady.' Me: 'That's right, daddy is a man … Continue reading Conversations with Elisabeth 2
One of Elisabeth's favorite games at the moment is playing tent, and preferably in our bed. I have tried making her tents in the kitchen and conservatory with sheets over chairs etc but she won't even go near them, the tent is in bed. Every night when we all (if my husband is home in time) go … Continue reading ‘Let’s go in the tent!’
Yesterday was my first day back at work after our kind of disastrous holiday. As if losing a baby wasn't enough, both my husband and I were pretty ill most of the week, not the most lovely family holiday. But, it was great that we did have the week off because I don't think I … Continue reading Back to work we go…
