You’llYou might never need them but I always have them in the press. Most of these I was totally unaware of when I had Ned and learned the usual way from other mums recommending them or running to the chemist and asking the pharmacist for advice. I put together a hamper for my best friend when she had her first baby in July and all these tinctures made an appearance. Some are not suitable until three months old and some are just for emergencies and some I still use daily with Ned in toddlerhood.
She wants you to text ahead and arrange a visit on her terms at a time that suits her. Child birth and becoming a mum first time, second time, eight time is overwhelming and comes with an enormous feeling of total lack of control. So naturally being in control of when and who she spends her time with is hugely important. For me this time I’m also considering Ned and how much disruption there will be to his little life all of a sudden so that too will play a part in when and who I want calling.
Bless, you don’t quite get what that means and you think your GREAT at eight, nine months pregnant and still thropping along! You’ll literally never get this time again. People aren’t just being kind! Rest!
Ned absolutely devoured this bad boy! It was simple to make and convenient in the little NomNom kids pouches. He gobbled it all independently. Smoothies are a great way of using fruit and getting a portion or two into a toddler who has decided they don’t like fruit this week and you’ve bought loads thinking othe wise! Continue reading
I wonder if a baby knew it had super power would it continue using it for good?
When you announce the joyful news ” I’m pregnant” how often will you be told “Oh your life will never be the same!” There’s continued comments, statements, advice and many Dos and Donts offered to you whether you want them or not.
But sure enough,for each parent, life will never be the same again! It’s not just your life a baby changes or you as a person they change, it’s those unsuspecting on lookers too. Those closest to you, congratulating you and screaming in excitement, they haven’t even realised that this little baby will change them too. Continue reading
New Year, New you….hmm? Bah humbug to that! What’s wrong with the old me!
What did I do so wrong in 2016 that I’ve to change? We all survived didn’t we? Maybe a little greyer and little rounder perhaps. We’re in Ireland… a little hibernation fat is essential! Continue reading
My dad started keeping hens this year, to our delight. Four hens, I named them the Kardashians; Kris, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney. The difference between the shop bought and his is nothing less than shocking! We are now cursed with a high standard for eggs. The bar is set, they’re eggcellent! Not a hope I’d make it through without an egg pun. I’m not even sorry!
This is my waiting patiently face, not for santa, not for the man in red nope….. Continue reading
Always best to say a little bit about yourself when entering a new group, community, world, planet! Well social media and motherhood are a new world to me and both came together in the same year. I’m enjoying both, making plenty of mistakes regularly but succeeding daily too. I was born and raised in County Limerick and did a degree in Intellectual Disability Nursing in The University of Limerick. I went straight from there to The University of Swansea and completed a masters in Applied behaviour Analysis (ABA). Continue reading
