Are they all yours???

I don’t think I ever thought about being a parent much whilst growing up in fact I was never that keen on kids, I would never ever want to hold a baby that was far to scary! I certainly never dreamed that one day I would have 4 of my own and 2 step children!…

Is it ok to not be ok?

These last few weeks have been hard! Like seriously hard. Whilst I sit here reflecting on them I’m struggling to actually remember what was hard and why it was hard? Because that’s what happens life gets shit we ride it out put on our big girl pants and crack on! You get over it and…

Mum problem’s….

Brace yourself because this one is a bit of a moan….. Do you know what really gets my back up? Really put’s me in a crappy mood, rile’s me, makes my blood boil? Bloody places with staff that treat you like shite because you have children in tow! Sod off! I am so fed up of…

Sharing the love…

This one is for big families, other like minded people that thought having multiple children was a great idea! Oh it is I wouldn’t change it for the world but….. How do you share your time? It’s so easy to get into a rut of the mundane Groundhog Day style life. You wake up rush…

Yes I definitely remember..

I definitely remember I mean how could I have even forgot? The destruction and determination of a toddling baby! It’s fun guys, I mean it’s heart warming watching them take those first steps it brings tears to my eyes, for me it’s my favourite milestone and I remember them all taking their first steps so…

When it all get’s a bit too much….

December has been a monumentally crazy month! Relentless, exhausting, exciting, expensive, beautiful, joyful, hard, testing, trying…. These are all word’s that have described my December, there has been high’s… Watching the children beam in their school nativity’s and make me proud. (Even if Stan was just a stupid animal) His words not mine. My daughter performing…

Tis the season!

It’s been a hard past few weeks, between Frank and I we have had every bug going passing them back and forth, a few new teeth thrown into the mix, broken sleep, tired worn out overexcited kids all resulting in one frazzled slightly cray cray mumma! However we are coming out the other side and…

Build each other up..

My 5 yr old came home this week telling me how it’s important to build each other up and be kind. It was the cutest thing and it really touched my heart. They talk about values at school and how we can show these values to one another. They teach Respect, Friendship, Love, Forgiveness, Honesty…

It’s all coming back to me now….

I’m tired.. there I said it. I’m tired, he’s tired, she’s tired were all bloody tired but who’s more tired? The parent that goes out to work? The parent that stays at home? The teenager? The grandparents? The daily commuter? We are all trying to live the best lives we can, trying to make the…
