February 16, 2017

It started with Hedgehog’s bum.

In the space of about four hours, she erupted with the worst case of nappy rash I’ve ever seen. Worse even than the time we had to get steroid cream from the doctor for a flare up that came about from diarrhorea, that came about from teet...

Mole started preschool last month.

Two mornings a week of blissful quiet in the house, with only the sound of Hedgehog toddling around and the kettle boiling for tea to be heard.

Hedgehog and I have cuddles that last for hours, sometimes we snooze together on the sofa, w...

Anyone with toddlers or babies will know that leaving the house is virtually impossible.

Last week, Mole won an award for causing the most stressful and time consuming ‘leaving the house’ experience I have ever known. This was also on a day when Mr M&H was home and she...

Lately, I seem to be winging my home days with Mole and Hedgehog in an aimless and haphazard way, compared with my carefully thought out routines and regular playgroups that made up my maternity leave.

Take last Monday for example. After dropping off Mr M&H at his place...

Mole: “Muuuuuum, mum, mum, MUM, MUMMMM!”

Me: “What?”

Mole: “What’s that?”

Me: “What’s what?”

Mole: “That out the window”.

Me: “It’s the moon”.

Mole: “Ooooh. What’s it doing?”

Me: “It orbits the Earth every day”

Mole: “Where’s it’s mummy?”

Me: “The moon doesn’t have a mummy”.

My name is Hedgehog and I am a very cute one year old. I use this to my advantage all the time, like getting maximum cuddles out of mummy, daddy, or to be honest, anyone who is passing, as I like being carried around.

My day starts at 6am, when I get bored of being in m...

Mole and Hedgehog enjoy quite a unique living situation for these days, I think. They play in the street with the neighbouring children. They draw chalks in the road, ride up and down on their bikes, and generally run amuck. I sit on our front garden bench with a cup o...

Last week we all went on holiday to Norfolk, to stay by the beach in a caravan.

It was wonderful and ‘intense’ in equal measure. Intense because we were living with a one year old and nearly three year old 24/7 with only a curtain to separate us at night. The unsurprisi...

Mr M&H is away on a stag do for his brother. He left on Friday morning and is meant to be back sometime on Saturday. I have been looking forward to my peaceful evening of DVD box sets for weeks.

On Friday night, after Mole and Hedgehog are in bed, I hang out the laundry...

Watching Mole and Hedgehog’s minds develop is a bit like watching a fuzzy picture gradually get clearer and sharper coming towards us, or slowly turning a dimmer switch from off to full on.

Last week, I was reading Mole the bedtime story “Billy Moves Out”, which is abou...
