Amy from The Smallest Of Things tagged me in the Rocking Motherhood tag. I like the idea of it, as the general idea is you list 10 ways in which you are rocking motherhood. In a world full of criticism and doubt it is meant to be a pat on the back. Sounds great right? In

I recently went to a nightclub. An actual nightclub. This is the first time I was actually properly in there since having Alexander. I was “technically” in one a few months ago as part of my friends hen party…. but I lasted all of 10 minutes before calling JHogg to come and pick me up.

Recently a Huffington Post article has been doing the rounds which urges Dads to take more photos of their partners with their children.

When Piglet was born he spent some time in the neonatal unit before he was able to come home. I was lucky, he was only in special care as opposed to intensive care or the high dependancy unit. But that didn’t change the way I felt at the time. Despite complications at birth, Piglet stayed

Piglet 5 months

The last month has flown by – I don’t know how we’ve reached 5 months. Piglet has really changed in the past few weeks and his personality is starting to show through. We’ve found his natural routine finally and its made for a really happy chap to have around! He has rolled out twice this
