Cherishing changes.

I sat down to write a post called “you never know it’s the last time”. And then discovered I’d already written it. So I’d better write something a little different πŸ˜‰ Tigerboy hasn’t weaned yet. What he has stopped doing is feeding in the day. He doesn’t seem to want my milk any more – […]

I’ll give you something to cry about.

This morning I brought Smallest to the swimming pool for her weekly swimming lesson. It runs alongside a women’s only swimming session, populated mainly by women of a certain age. This leads to an interesting mix in the changing room, and this morning we just couldn’t seem to get out of the way of an […]

We’re here again – hospital adventure part two.

10.38. Today’s nurse didn’t seem to care whether we ended up sitting with a bunch of possibly infectious children til I pointed it out, so now we’re in a room at least. No cot, so again I’m pleased I brought the car seat in. We’re on the appt board today, name spelt wrong obviously, so […]

Tired tweeting.

Typing one handed and slightly tipsy over the head of a beautiful babe slowly going to sleep at my breast. On my breast? Whatever. She is definitely beautiful. They all are. The gorgeous 11 yo who doesn’t fit under my chin any more. The slightly shaggy 7 year old just visiting from another planet. The […]

Baby led weaning.

So there’s a new report out is there, that now says exclusive breast feeding until six months could be a problem. I haven’t read the report. I’m not going to. I haven’t even read any of the newspaper articles about it. I’m not going to do that either. I just caught up on twitter that […]

There are no bars here.

Recently I came across an article by Erica Jong that is getting a less than positive reaction. The article is entitled Mother Madness and the tagline reads Spend every moment with your child? Make your own baby food and use cloth diapers? Erica Jong wonders how motherhood became such a prison for modern women. Hm. […]

Lansinoh breast pump and accessories review

When I went back to work 14 weeks after Big was born, sending expressed milk to nursery with her was my personal line in the sand. I couldn’t stop her crying, I didn’t really know how to hold her, and I didn’t know what to say, but I knew she was having my milk. So […]

She's got the whole world in her hands

I don’t do those monthly letter to a baby posts that so many bloggers do. But I’ve realised that I barely mention soa except in passing, so I thought I would do a post focussing on her as she is right now, or in another month or so I’ll have forgotten. She’s 10 months old. […]


Aargh, days are slipping by without blogging again! Tim was away for a couple of nights at the beginning of the week, which cut down drastically on my (evening) computing time. It also meant a convoluted set of logistics for the Monday evening activities – Big was picked up slightly late for her fun swim […]

Two hands free

and half a braincell working πŸ˜‰ (so know how you feel Deb!) Soa is currently on her big sister’s knee, or trying to crawl up her shoulder. She appears to like crawling up ppl’s shoulders. She is a very strong willed baby, who likes to feed frequently, but for some reason, doesn’t open her mouth […]
