Becoming a parent is one of the most amazing life accomplishments, I could have ever wished for. For the first time in my life, I felt truly needed and loved unconditionally. Fast forward, now I have three kids to raise and a busy life schedule to keep up with. There are a few things I have learned, few tips I have picked up, and thousands of family adventures that I want to share with all of you. This is our family life from days out, pregnancy diaries, baby and toddler milestones, parties and just documenting our everyday life as a family of five below. Choose your category and happy reading!
Family Days Out
We love experiences new adventures both far and close to home. Sometimes its the little family walks along the beach that were unexpectedly the best time. We also like to try new things as the kids get older. Here are some fab ideas for what you can do with the smaller ones and then the bigger ones once they start growing up together as a family.
Pregnancy & Births
All three of my pregnancies and births have been completely different. Here is my pregnancy diaries for each month, along with my birth stories (which was the fastest) and everything that has to do with becoming a first time parent to a pro parent. It’s not all roses but you’re not alone.
Potty training is probably the only milestone I have gone through as a parent that I absolutely hated. Weaning isn’t too bad and can be fun and learning to speak and laugh is fab but potty training my three is still an ongoing battle. Here is what we have tried and what worked and what we are still doing to get this house dry for good!
I love a good party. I love to plan parties even more. Planning parties for some can be daunting. Where to start? What to do? I have kids party ideas here, and checklists for planning the perfect party for adults and kids alike. Don’t forget to stop by my recipes section for party food too. Another firm fave topic to share.
There are so many different ways to wean your baby and it’s all about what’s right for you and your baby. I have weaned all three of my babies differently. From babyled weaning to homemade purees, to store bought pouches and chunks, I can guide you how to try each one and find the one right for you.
This is where we document our family life. Those big milestones we don’t want to forget, those unforgettable adventures in a back field or just the amazing bond between siblings and our monthly family photos we take. It’s great to look back and share our family life with you over the years here.
With having three children and two back to back, sleep routines are so important to get right. They help solve so many other problems that you may face as a parent like bad eating habits, grumpy/tantrums and more. Sleep is the key and getting a good sleep routine is blissful when you get them sorted.
