Boo Is 11

Today my girl turns 11 years old. I know, I know, I say it every year, but how is this possible? She was only just toddling around, it was only a few months ago that she started school, surely? And yet here she is, in her final year at primary school, and we’re about to …

The Birthday Week

We are embarking on the birthday week in our household. It’s the Husband’s tomorrow and then mine at the weekend. The Husband has been off since Friday evening so it’s nice to have him home with us. He’s continued to work full time throughout the pandemic, so he’s also enjoyed having a break. Of course, …

Happy 10th Birthday, Boo

Today my daughter turns 10 years old, the big 10! I can’t quite believe that we are in double figures already. Boo seems to be growing so quickly. As a baby, Boo was always on the go, she wasn’t one for slowing down and napping. She wanted to discover everything and when she could talk, …

Happy 9th Birthday, Boo

Today my beautiful daughter is 9 years old. I don’t know why, but ‘9’ just seems so grown up to me. I handled 7 and 8, but 9, 9 just seems too much! Maybe it is because I am seeing those changes in my girl, Boo is definitely growing up and entering into that ‘tween’ …

Little Man is 6!

How can my baby be turning six years old today? Oh, and in truth ‘Little Man’ is now something of a misnomer. He’s taller than all of his classmates and most of the year above him! Little Man has been counting down the months, weeks and days to today. He has been desperate for his …

Today my beautiful baby girl is 8. These eight years have just flown by, and my eldest has ensured that I have loved it all. From baby to toddler to pre-schooler to school girl, Boo has delighted in everything around her. She misses nothing, is freakishly observant, and absorbs all that she can like a …

Little Man is 5 Today!

Today is my Little Man’s birthday, he’s 5 years old today. Five. Just wow. Where did those years go? I’ve seen this boy as a sleepy and cuddly baby, a cheeky daredevil toddler, a shy and imaginative preschooler and now we’re here turning five, as he’s about to become a schoolboy. Little Man is funny, …

Tomorrow I Will Be 40

Or to put it another way, today’s the last day of being in my thirties. I have spent the last few days celebrating, as Friday was the Husband’s 41st birthday and then we had the weekend to ourselves whilst the kids stayed at my mum’s. It was lovely. Today we have Little Man with us so …

Happy 7th Birthday, Boo

Today my beautiful girl is seven years old. Seven! I vividly remember the moment that she entered the world, calm in the water and just so utterly perfect. She was an active baby, an active toddler and as ages 3, 4, 5 and 6 have seen her remain active, I’m going to assume that 7 …

Happy 5th Birthday, Boo

Today my girl turns 5. For the first time since she was born, we’re apart on her birthday as she will be at school. She’s quite content to be going, and another little girl in her class is also 5 today, so I’m sure they’ll have plenty of fun there. It’s another sign of how grown up …

Little Man is 2!

Today my son turns 2. I can hardly believe it. It only seems like yesterday that he arrived, and yet in other ways, it feels like he’s always been here. If you read about his rocky start in life, with me bleeding throughout the first half of the pregnancy, you’ll know that we only bonded …
