“Mummy I’m going to do the Auntie Chloe face and Ewan can smile, okay?”
Yes my children are already in the bath. By Friday Evie is officially pooped. So we’ve had a freezer dinner and now an early bath before we all slob in front of the telly for a bit before bed. Please tell me it’s not just us who does this?🙈

Going to be honest. I was pretty impressed with my take on the Paw Patrol Look Out Tower 😏
And I thought Sean was quite impressed but it got dismantled like 15 minutes later 🙄
Although it took 5 minutes to build and I definitely decided that, that was my big play moment of the day.
I know that I am not the only one who doesn’t know how to (like😬) play. I don’t mind if the play has an end, so board games or crafts. I just can’t do the imaginative play anymore 🤷🏻‍♀️ . .

QUACK!! Yes this little one is quacking away constantly now. Which is quite funny as her brother’s first word was “DUCK!”

Timmies home, it's Friday and I've just inhaled this raspberry and peach cream doughnut. Here's to the weekend my beauties!

Me and my boy in yet another park! But this time, it’s sunny, he’s happy and we had a great time together. Happy Friday everyone ☀️ 🌞 #familydayout #lifewithkids #familyfirst #magicineveryday #capturingtheday #childfriendlybrighton #brightonandhove #budgetlife #brightonkids #brightonmums #brightonlife #parentingtoddlers

Ok, I admit, I'm shocked too.... We have another little girl on the way! 🎀💕 They are going to be the cutest little sisters together, I'm sure they'll be so close as their age gap is so small.... although Robbie is now truly outnumbered! 🤣 Just shows all the myths about pregnancy symptoms and gender really are myths! We were convinced it was a boy but are overjoyed with our surprise girl! 💕💗👩‍👩‍👧‍👦

Oh my heart. I can’t even deal with how cute these two are. Isabelle is trying to crawl, and she has almost mastered it, god help me 🤦‍♀️ Emily is loving the fact Isabelle is moving around more and playing with her although I’m sure that will change when Isabelle starts playing with her toys 😂💜🌈

It’s nearly Friday 🙌🏻🙌🏻
Not sure what I’m looking forward to but I know I’m looking forward to it 💁🏻‍♀️ Maybe it’s so Sean can have his playmate back. He really does miss Ben when he’s at school even if 87% of the time they are fighting 🙄
We had to take Ben’s lunchbox in the other day (straight after we’d dropped him off) and Sean could not understand why we couldn’t ‘get Ben’. He just kept saying ‘Ben friend’ 😩
I really don’t know anyone IRL with children his age so he just has to put up with entertaining himself. Poor baby. At least after the summer he’ll be at nursery and make friends there. . .

// My little helper // Mr loved coming to the pet 🐶 food wholesalers with me this time. He hitched a ride in the trolly 🚗, played drums 🎶 with the dog food tins and was in ore of their fork lift truck 🚨 in action (and a little bit scared 😦🤣) Take him to all the good places!

Peter Pan playground next to @yellowave on Madeira Drive is one of our favourite place to hang out. Lovely equipment, cheap on road parking (£1 an hour) and a lovely cafe with roof terrace and sea views. What more could you need!

Every day her personality is coming out more and more. I can't wait to see who she become and what she'll be like. Will she be like Piper or will she be completely opposite? Either way, she is perfect and I am so in love. #raisinglittles #raisingthoserascals #capturethemoment #magicineveryday #babyblues #mygirl

Paddington and Eliott are good buddies, the storybook may be falling apart but it always makes for an easy bedtime read! (Now, where did Paddington leave his coat this time?)

Sometimes I take a photo and the square of Instagram means I cut off bits that I don’t want to. But sometimes I means I can hide the mess 😏😂
This is Ben. Doing homework. After school 🙌🏻 Which I think shows how on top of everything I felt. Even if it was a little messy 🤷🏻‍♀️
Actually I am learning to live with mess. It doesn’t feel like the end of the world anymore.
Because really the ‘mess’ isn’t that bad. And it has no reflection on my mothering capabilities!
I used to so desperately try (and generally fail, ending up feeling totally useless and 💩 ) to keep it a certain level of tidiness so that if anyone happened to ‘drop in’ (no one ever did) they wouldn’t think I wasn’t coping. There were very few people who saw the mess, and now thinking back to it I don’t believe those who did thought anything of it. I think it wasn’t a surprise considering what was going on at the time.
It’s taken a long time to get to the point where I’m like ‘fuck it, I’ve got two kids and I’m tired.’
Although that isn’t to say I don’t dream of living in a spotless house 😂
And that if I’m already feeling anxious then it can become overwhelming to the point I want to chuck it all out and start again! 🙈🤯 Praying for a better night sleep from Sean tonight. Because I am tired! (May have already mentioned that? 🙄) And I would like some energy for my brain to function enough to plan some stuff out tomorrow 🙄😩🤞🏻 . .

As a toddler my girl was fascinated by water! What could be more fun than throwing pebbles in repeatedly and listening to them ‘plop’. Giggles galore. ❤️❤️ #brightonkids #brightonmums #brightonbeach #familytime #sussexkids #toddlerlife #brighton #creatingmemories #magicineveryday #childfriendlybrighton #frugalliving

Day two at nursery and things are getting better each day, no phone calls to collect early this time, she lasted the entire day! She even had a sleep there, which is impressive. She's still refusing most food but that might take time to get used to. I had a busy day, I went swimming, took the dog for a walk (which felt so weird on my own!) and caught up with some blog work, the house was so silent - bizarre! She's exhausted now after a busy day so hopefully she'll sleep well! 🤞 How was your day?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

“A wise bear always keeps a marmalade sandwich in his hat in case of emergency” Paddington Bear.
Or a wise mum always keeps a pack of brioche buns, a pot of sliced grapes, cucumbers, a packet of rich tea biscuits or bourbons, pasta, crisps, a bottle of water and a partridge in a pear tree 👜

I’m loving the fact it’s spring and I can now buy daffodils again. My home always seems to be full of them. Emily and I just rustled up some dairy free banana and chocolate chip muffins. Let me know if you’d like me to share the recipe on my blog. I can’t wait for Isabelle to try these after dinner. We also made a batch for my nanna as it’s her birthday today - any excuse for cake! 💐🍰
