The toy rotation realisation - you need to do this!!

In the back of your mind you sort of realise that a baby is bound to take over your house a bit, but in reality it ends up being more that you could imagine, at least that's how it is in our house. At this stage Lylie doesn't have a set playroom, this may change when she reaches an age where she is likely to have independent play. However at the moment our whole house is her play room. 
It drives my husband up the wall, it actually bothers him a whole lot more than it bothers me (I am so used to being in the middle of a pile of brightly coloured toys at this stage) He is always asking me when we can 'get rid' of this or that, she doesn't play with half of it anyway. Although I have purchased the majority of Lylie's toys from charity shops and therefore have no emotional attachment to them it is still difficult for me to give them up. What if she decides to play with them later?

Survival Tips - Getting through a wedding with a baby

I don't know about you but now Christmas is well and truly over I am about ready for spring. Today I saw daffodils in the shops and it made me so happy... soon the shelves will be full of egg shape chocolate (my favourite type) The thought of impending warmer weather coincided with a bunch of save the date cards hitting my door mat, that's right wedding season is on the way. Lylie is only just one and she has already attended THREE weddings, so I thought I would share my survival tips for making it through the wedding day with a baby in tow.

Going into 2018 Confidently

Last year was consumed by my newly found motherhood, remembering back to this time last year I was a bit of a mess - mentally and physically. I have learnt so much in the last 365 days about babies and my daughter.. and surprisingly also about myself. Looking back over the past year I can barely recognise myself as the mother I am now. I was terrified to leave the house with this new human I was suddenly in charge of, what if she did a poo? what if she made a noise? Now I feel quite confident in my role, even if I made decisions that I know would receive eye rolls on the mama forums. I own my mistakes. These day's I could even pass as a normal functional human being.
