100 Toys - Review


 
I hate to say it, but I can be a bit of a toy snob. If I had my own way, Aoife would only ever have had lovely wooden or fabric toys. But, when your child is absolutely obsessed with Peppa Pig you can't help but give in to their endless requests for the matching merchandise.
So far, my need for traditional toys has only gotten as far as a rocking horse that we got for her first Christmas, so when 100 Toys contacted me to take a look at their products I jumped at the chance.

Nursery Nightmares

I have previously touched on Aoife's nursery experience on my blog; she started attending a day nursery when she was only five months old and has always loved her time there. That is, until recently. Over the last six months we have had tears during ninety per cent of her drop offs.

SENSSE Silicone Facial Brush - Review


Looking after my skin is something that I strive to keep on top of, especially as I have suffered from dry, sensitive, acne prone skin for as long as I can remember.

Bluestone Day Three: Soft Play, Camp Smokey and Fairies.

'If you go down to the woods today, you're sure of a big surprise'
Jimmy Kennedy
Our third day at Bluestone brought about even more glorious sunshine; enough so that Aoife had the chance to get her legs out - something that certainly doesn't happen too often in Wales!

Perineal Massage with the Natural Birthing Company


Something that I haven't fully discussed on my blog is the results of my labour and delivery with Aoife; the gorgeous 7lb 10oz bundle left me with a third degree tear and, what I recently discovered, a three unit blood transfusion as a result of a 2.5 litre postpartum haemorrage. The aftermath initially put me off of a vaginal delivery again and I even queried about an elective c-section for any future deliveries.

You're Going To Be A Big Sister!


I'm sat here writing this as you sleep next to me; I would like to say peacefully but that would be a lie. Even when you are sleeping, you still create so much noise with your snoring, grunting and thrashing around - I've ended up with quite a few bruises from you kicking out in your sleep over the last couple of years.
