Morning Mummy – My Top 10 Wake-Up Calls

I no longer need an alarm clock to wake me up.  In fact I haven’t needed one for the last 4 years.  You see Harry is the most effective alarm clock I’ve ever had because he wakes at the same time EVERY DAY, his voice has no volume control and his “snooze” button doesn’t work.  I also never know what to expect out of his mouth as he greets me in the morning.  Some of the things I have woken up to have made me question whether someone gave me Read on…

Month of Firsts – April 2017

Here we are again, time to round up all of your “firsts” for another month.  I started this series of posts because I have a type of epilepsy that affects my short term memory.  Quite simply if I don’t write it down I forget it.  I don’t want to forget the moments that have brought a smile to my face, those that pulled at my heart strings and even those that left me wanting to rip my hair out in frustration.  So, Harry this is what – I can remember – you got up to in April.

Minion

He Said What – Part 2

One of the things about young children is that they say what they see.  It is said with innocence but it doesn’t make it any less embarrassing.  There have been so many embarrassing moments that they have just become common place.  Unfortunately my child doesn’t come with a volume control switch.  When he wants to draw my attention to something he usually points at it or – even worse – he runs over to it.  Over the last few months his observations have gone up a level as has my Read on…

Month of Firsts – December 2016

Here we are again, time to round up all of your “firsts” for another month.  I know I am a little behind on posting these – as I have been for the last few months – so there may be some things I have forgotten.  In fact the eagle-eyed might have noticed that I have skipped November completely.  I started this series of posts because I have epilepsy and it affects my short term memory so it is only me that misses out in the long run, as things you did that made me laugh Read on…

Month of Firsts – October 2016

Another month and another instalment of Month of Firsts. The series of posts I started because I was struggling to keep track of what you did and when you did it.  I love looking back and reading what we got up to as it brings the memories flooding right back.  However, of late I have been a little tardy with these posts.  I am so not up to date with what you have been up to – hence this post being written in Feb – but it highlights to me just how important it is Read on…

Time Flies

There are some features of Facebook that annoy me – I DO NOT PLAY CANDY CRUSH SAGA NEITHER DO I WANT TO SO PLEASE DON’T INVITE ME – is a particular bug-bear of mine – and then those that make me smile, such as the feature that let’s you see your memories from previous years.  This particular reminder blew me away because remarkably it showed what had happened on the same day over the last 4 years, and so I wanted to share it here.  In my opinion it is a set of quite special photographs Read on…

Month of Firsts – September 2016

Another month and another instalment of Month of Firsts. The series of posts I started so that I could keep track of what you did and when you did it.  I am late with posting September’s update, but I doubt I will ever forget this month, as this one has been pretty significant.  So, Harry this is what happened in September: Started school – Let’s start with the main one shall we.  School. A milestone that seemed ages away and yet here we are already.  You only do mornings, but that doesn’t matter, you are still in school.  Read on…

Pumpkin Patch

Magic Moments // Pumpkin Picking

I have never picked a pumpkin.  I don’t particularly like pumpkin so there has never been a need to.  But having a child means you have an excuse a reason to try new things.  I’d seen photos of friends that had gone pumpkin picking and it looked like good fun so I decided that we were going to give it a try. I had a romantic vision of fields full of autumnal colours, neat rows of pumpkins, and happy children skipping among them.  The reality was very, very, different.  Now, I have only watched Read on…

Month of Firsts – August 2016

Another month and another instalment of Month of Firsts. The series of posts I started because I was struggling to keep track of what you did and when you did it.  I have to say that August has to be my favourite so far.   Whether it was more poignant because it is the month before you started pre-school or perhaps it was just because we had such a fun family holiday, fitting so much in to it.  I honestly can’t put my finger on it.  It could well have been both.  So, Harry this is what we got up to Read on…
