Do I want more children?

Do I want more children?

The short answer is Yes! You’ll be surprised but growing up I’ve never been the maternal type, and wasn’t overly glad about mum having another kid and younger brothers for me.

But as I’ve discovered the right person isn’t always the best person, because people change and relationships change. Fast forward to when I found…

Things I’ve learnt since being a single mum

Things I’ve learnt since being a single mum

• I can do a lot more on my own than I first thought (was anxious about) the first few weeks of being a single mum was tough especially with a newborn and a toddler the transitions was a challenge but I settled quite quickly once I was in my own place and had routine, and I just found my own ways of doing things. • I can decorate on my own, just need patience and wait until the kids…

Finding love as a single parent/Dating advice

Finding love as a single parent/Dating advice

Before I dive right into what I want to share, you’re probably wondering where on earth I’ve been for the past 3 months, I do apologise but those who are single parents of 2 very young children you will know how challenging it can be to even…

A typical day in the life of 2 under 2

Before I begin I want to apologise for my recent absence from the blog, but as you can imagine going from one stable situation to giving birth and being a single mummy to 2 under 2, is quite a lot to take in over such a short space of time. But don’t fear I’m back now, and hopefully better and stronger than ever. My typical day starts at about 5.30/ 6 am when Sully would usually wake up for a…

Sullivan’s 5 week update!

Sullivan’s 5 week update!

Can you believe this little one is 5 weeks old! It only feels like yesterday i was in MLU labour ward getting ready to meet him. It really does go by so quickly, and everyday i feel so guilty that i haven’t got in enough cuddles because before i know it, i’ll blink and he’ll be crawling around. As some of you may know I did intend on breastfeeding exclusively for at least 6 months, but with the personal circumstances getting in…
