11 month itch

Last week marked my darling Blake turning 11 months old, which in turn marks a month until I have to return to work. I’m so very sad about having to return to work and leaving her. I was hammering down the office door at around 10 months with Dex, safely returning back on payroll by … Continue reading

Waterbabies

There was a lot of love in our house earlier, specifically from 18:25 until about 18:48, or more commonly known as, Bath time. Both my kids love the water, it’s their happy place. I don’t know if it has any relevance to their love of water but I used to lull in the bath for hours … Continue reading

A letter to my toddler

A letter to my toddler

Dearest Dexter, What an amazing year 2013 was for you. In just a year you’ve gone from a cruising baby to a confident toddler. We’ve watched you grow and learn and develop and become such an awesome little boy. You waited until we’d moved into our first family home in January before taking your first … Continue reading

Scaredy Cat

This year is the first year we’re going trick or treating, and to ease Dexter (and the OH in) we’re only going to visit friends and family. We’ve kinda celebrated Halloween in the past by just being at home and answering the door to kids in bin bags. This year will be the first that … Continue reading

DKD’s Animal Spectacular

DKD’s Animal Spectacular

For Dexter’s 2nd birthday we decided to host a party at our home in our brand new sparkly garden. Dex is mad on animals so we thought an animal theme would be ideal, and I love dressing up so what better than for all the kids to come dressed as their favourite animal! I created … Continue reading

Guess Who’s 2?

Guess Who’s 2?

DKD is 2 years old! Blimey we have a 2 year old. An official toddler. A little man that runs around being all little manly. Our son, our world, our absolute everything, what did we spend our money on before you? He’s amazing (obviously biased). He’s like this mad, bubbly, nutty little dude that has … Continue reading

The K-D’s Visit Kos

Whilst most families are heading away on their summer holidays about now, the K-D’s are still reminiscing about theirs. We went to Kos at the beginning of July, just before the schools finished. And just before it got silly hot. Kos is familiar to both of us. The OH lived and worked there for a … Continue reading

A Letter To My Boy

A Letter To My Boy

Oh DKD do you have any idea how much you brighten my life? How much you make me smile so broadly I think my cheeks will split? How you make coming home from work that extra bit special? It’s your cheeky face, your grubby little hands, your dimply bum, your chunky thighs and your long … Continue reading
