Teeny fingers and teeny toes. Oh my boy, the last 3 months has flown by. Slow down! #3monthsold
When I first weaned Woody I did this thing where I pretended that my children didn’t rely entirely on tomato ketchup to make any kind of meal palatable. Who was I kidding?! How did people parent before ketchup was a thing?! Nora in particular is an absolute sauce fiend but as long as she eats, I’m happy. Especially as this Heinz No Added Sugar and Salt ketchup means she can dip away to her hearts content. Eggs and sauce though?! Yes or No?! It’s an absolute no from me but this little gal just can’t get enough p.s is it too soon to joke about the chicken pox fiasco?! #ad#heinzketchup#noaddedsugar
If in doubt channel your inner . Scrap that. Wear the rainbow! I have the same photo on the same spot from the last few years and it touches my heart to see these floppy haired heads creeping up my body. What’s the old wives tale? That no son is shorter than their mother? It’s at this point in their little lives that I just can’t imagine that at all. We’ve left the baby days long behind us, reminisced a lot on this holiday looking at old videos on the phone, of Sammy charging down the hospital corridor with a nappy waddle and clutching a balloon to give to his new baby brother. Looked at the very first photos of them, leading to lots of leading questions from their curious minds. We have real conversations now. In Sammy’s school report his teacher said “He asks questions sometimes that makes all of our brain’s ache - in a good way!” It’s not the endless why? that you get when they hit 3. More what ifs and what abouts. A holiday in a home away from home means they are exactly the same but in the sun. I’m still asking the same things, put your shoes on eight times before we head out, stop arguing in the pool “both handstands get 10/10!” but that’s life! There’s something about being here, about knowing we have some precious time with Granny that softens it all though. Feeling very lucky. And hopefully one day they might read this and know I wasn’t just nagging all week. That I love being with them. Even if my boy said “Mama, I think you look good in your bikini. Your tummy is wobbly but you look like Pre Middle Age.” “I said Pre as in your not quite Middle Aged.” Much better son
Anyone else super tired this week? It’s the last week of term and I feel like we’re a family of snails slowly creeping our way to the finish line

I’M JOINING IN WITH MY #LITTLELOVES AT COFFEE WORK SLEEP REPEAT
Yesterday was a mix of amazing and devastating news. But today, as I’m dragging both boys out of bed by their ankles, I’m focusing on the little good moments, like when Theo’s pants split and instead of falling out over weetabix we laughed at split pants.
This month I have been shopping for the perfect head scarfs, mixing and matching outfits for our holiday (in 4 weeks), stepping up on my exercise plan, trying out a new skincare range and preparing myself for the end of Year 2 for our little man. All I can think about right now is Happy Holidays, I think I might have to start the countdown. Is it ever too soon? #lifecloseup#simplethingsmakemehappy#littleloves#findyoursunshine
Our eldest little love Juno is earning her keep these school holidays. The younger two are constantly squabbling and producing a load of washing each every day... This #mumboss life can certainly be testing. Luckily they are damned cute still (and also bribable with screen time, ice cream and mandarins)

Sometimes the thought of all the work in being spontaneous makes me want to hold back.
But the look of joy on these little faces as they splash in puddles and dance in the rain makes the wet laundry and trails of water through the house all worth it.
I will always remember the first time we played in the rain as a family. The little man was shocked that I wanted to go out in the down pour.
But now playing in the rain is one of our families special things. We love it when it rains! #makingmemoriestogether#themagicineveryday#letthembekids
