An Eye for an Eye. (An Eye Related Post.) …Eye.

My son permanently sleeps with one eye open. I assume this isn’t because he doesn’t trust me and his father not to steal his worldly possessions from out under him (snot encrusted Spot the dog puppet, nah your alright you keep it) while he dozes, or because he doesn’t trust me not to do a […]

You are a potato, but I love you.

‘If there was one thing you could have done differently or better in the lead up to having Addison, what would it have been?’ Shamoo the pregnant whale asked of me while trying to maintain the serious look in her eye and struggling not to lose her cool as she slowly and repeatedly sunk in to the […]

Don’t call me Mum. (The Journey.)

The ‘perfect’ mother.

I am desperate to breast feed but I am struggling. I shouldn’t give up? Breast is best? My milk hasn’t come in at all yet the health visitor said. So he is feeding on fresh air. My nipples are bleeding and cracked. I am in agony. I should pump more and suck up the pain? […]

The Mummy Club.

At school I was the kind of girl that always, without fail, was picked last for any type of team sports. Hang on; I feel I need to labour this point. I was the kind of girl that got picked last for any kind of team sports even at my own birthday party. If there […]

Moments in time…

There are moments in my life when i suddenly think to myself, i want to remember this exact moment forever.And then promptly forget all about it. Life can be such a rush when you have a baby. life is a rush anyway but since having a baby it has speeded up a few thousand notches. […]
