Finding love as a single parent/Dating advice

Finding love as a single parent/Dating advice

I honestly thought I’d be one of those crazy cat/dog ladies for the rest of my life. I really didn’t think I’d find love again especially being a single mum of 2 kids. 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…

How to entertain a toddler and a baby!

How to entertain a toddler and a baby!

When I say entertain I don’t mean standing up and performing a cabaret or anything, well unless that’s how you chose to entertain your kids but what I mean is how I basically keep them both happy at the same time, it can be quite the juggling act at times.

How I’m finding life with 2 under 2

How I’m finding life with 2 under 2

Today I’m going to share with you my experiences of having 2 children under the age of 2. Sullivan is now 3 weeks old, which I still cannot believe.
