August 5, 2016

Hedgehog is fourteen months old and still taking the boob, just once a day in the mornings. It’s like her morning latte. She wakes up like clockwork at five thirty, Mr M&H brings her into our bed and she settles down next to my body, rolling towards me to assume the bo...

Last month I started a new job three days a week, after spending just over a year at home with Mole and Hedgehog. The transition, in truth, has been hard.

I spent much of my maternity leave with the question of work hanging in the wings. The basic conundrum being of a d...

I’ll be honest, I’ve been looking forward to potty training Mole since she turned two. The thought of only having to change one bum a day instead of two filled me with excitement, plus the savings on the nappies we would no longer have to buy.

She is now nearly three, a...

How do Mole and Hedgehog view time?. The main point is that they don’t. They are completely unaware of time. I don’t think they have any concept of how long a day is, or a week, let alone a month. A year is half a life time, or an entire life time for Hedgehog, so I ca...

It’s the first of our holidays for 2016, and this year I’m on a roll with the planning.  I’ve got them all mapped out for the year, it’s my antidote for an increasingly domestic life with two little people for company. It’s also the first time in two years we’ve been s...

Today I would like to share a particularly futile journey I made last year. A journey made in an attempt to keep myself sane and entertain the Mole and Hedgehog. It illustrates the lengths that a parent will go to ease the monotony of the living room, especially in win...

My name is Mole and this is my house. Mummy and daddy live with me too and they’re supposed to look after me, but the service is pretty dire sometimes.

I mean take this morning. I wake up at my usual time of 5.30am, a perfectly reasonable time. First I start with some s...

At four months old the new born fog of Hedgehog is almost lifted, so we are celebrating with a trip to The New Forest. We are staying in my mum’s (aka Granny and Graham’s) donated caravan. This is my safeguarding to camping after the last traumatic experience, when our...

At the risk of sharing a bit too much, I want to talk about the night Hedgehog was born. It seems rather apt as it’s coming up to her first birthday. From conversations with fellow mums I know that birth stories tend to be wildly different, depending on the mum and on...

When I found out that I was expecting Mole, apart from the inner excitement and dawning realisation of the responsibility that lay ahead, I was also preoccupied with baby shopping. This fed into my existing consumer addiction which most people have, but I quickly reali...
