It’s been a sick house at Mole and Hedgehog Associates this week. I blame the Autumn cold weather.

First Mole got the streaming nose, then Hedgehog followed. Mole specialises in doing noisy and dramatic sniffs before wiping her nose on her sleeve. Hedgehog prefers the p...

Boys will be boys and girls will be girls, right?.

It reminds me of that Blur song: “Girls who are boys, who like boys to be girls, who do boys like they're girls, who do girls like they're boys”. I get a consensus from a lot of people that it doesn’t matter how equally...

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside, oh I do like to be beside the sea… have I gone a bit too ‘tally ho and hip hip hooray’ British for you? sorry about that.

I’m still reminiscing about our Welsh jaunt to see Granny Purple Hair, which featured a seaside trip just abo...

Mole and Hedgehog are not going to sleep tonight. They are up and down the stairs like a pair of yoyos. This happens about 3 nights out of 7, and it is exhausting. It is true that they slept in the car at the worst possible time of day, aka 5pm, but then, it is not alw...

Me: “Mole, please take your finger out of your nose”.

Mole: “But I’m trying to get my bogey out”.

Me: “Leave the bogey alone, it will come out on its own later”.

Mole: “No it won’t mummy. It will be up there for a hundred weeks”.

Me: (trying not to laugh) “Well I can’t see...

Mole and Hedgehog LOVE animals. Fury ones, scaly ones,  feathered ones, it doesn’t matter. It is the only other thing besides my phone or a laptop that is guaranteed to get their instant attention.

This extends from following around cats and dogs, to chasing squirrels i...

It appears that we have irreversibly changed. We now have children that we are addicted to, and doing ‘adult stuff’ without them is all very well, but it starts to get hollow pretty quickly.

We lately embarked on a twosome trip away – a thousand miles away to Iceland to...

Hedgehog: “Read it mummy. Read it mummy. Read it, read it, read it, READ IT!”.

Me: “Okay, I just need to put your sister’s jumper on first”.

Mole: “Mummy NO, I do it MYSELF”.

Me: “Fine. We have to leave the house in 2 minutes”.

Mole: “Mummy, get out of my room”.

Hedgehog: “...

“Sleep is for wimps”, this is what Hedgehog would say if she could talk more.

As you can tell, its been a particularly bad week for sleep in our household.

I’m now at the stage of making wrong turns and running red lights in the car because I’m so dazed from lack of slee...

Am I alone in thinking that having babies spells financial suicide?  It’s not the extra clothes / food / toys / tickets for them so much as the loss of earnings from at least one of the parents for taking time off to look after them. I have no idea how single parents d...
