It’s really difficult to eat well when you are busy and you are kind of against planning. I was discussing this the other week and wrote a whole post about it. You can catch it here.
Mothers day falls this coming Sunday, 26th March 2017.
Last week I attempted my first week of semi-healthy eating and also took those first baby steps towards actually planning what we ate for the week.
Now I’m not a ‘Crafty’ person. I am slightly obsessed with Pinterest but mainly I collate food I am never going to make. however, with Mothers day looming I thought it might be nice to take the focus off the expense and maybe drop a few hints OR get yourself involved in some ‘Craft (gulp)’. This would also work if you are looking to make a sentimental gift for your own mother/mother-in-law etc.
I’m not sure how I feel about Mothers day.
Let me explain. I want to knock on your door and high 5 you for surviving thus far, for getting up each day and being the best Mother you can be. I want to take my own Mother on the biggest, best holiday in the whole world. She totally deserves it but when it comes to Mothers day gift guides and all that shiz. I feel weird. I admit it.
Before you have a baby, the notion of reading them a bedtime story as they lay curled on your lap is one of the most appealing images of parenthood. I spent ages browsing bookshops when I was pregnant to find beautifully-illustrated baby books with inspirational and empowering sub-texts. Fast forward two years and guess what my daughter’s favourite book is? Well it’s a toss-up between a Peppa Pig story about a goldfish, or the Dominos Pizza menu. The closest thing you get to a sub-text in that is the calorie content of a Mighty Meaty.
It’s a common question, so common you can feel it coming before the words even come out of her mouth. “So….when are you going to have another one?”
In January, we packed up two bags and set off for Italy. We both love to travel so this didn’t seem too wild for us, except this time we traded in the suitcases for rucksacks and they were accompanied by a folding pushchair, filled with our six-month-old baby. Backpacking Italy with a baby the done thing amongst our friends.
Our eldest boy was born 13 September 2013 and your youngest boy was born 13 October 2014 – and there’s exactly a 13 month age gap – 13, Unlucky for some but not us.
