  • Lovely list! So agree that like you, I am so grateful that I get to be a stay at home Mum to MM and witness all her firsts. I also get a lot of grandparent guilt too! And I am always questioning my parenting skills! Lots of snaps! Does Arthur go to nursery at all? I can’t figure out whether to send MM for a few hours a week so she has more of a chance to socialise.. Random thing to ask I know! X

    • Haha definitely a lot of snaps there!!
      I take Arthur into school once a week the local nurserys here scare me a little so I take him in to play at the international school where the smallest kids are 3, I stay with him the whole time we are just there a couple hours he loves it, I think for learning to socialise with other kids it’s fab as there aren’t any little kids clubs or anything else here I could take him too! Xx

  • What a lovely list – sadly mine would be nowhere near as genuinely sweet and loving, more like one long list of disasters like baking Kelp Cupcakes (and conned the children into eating them). Actually now I say that I think there is a blog post in that somewhere! I do do the guilty bedtime thing though….

    • Haha I think it’s all the pregnancy hormones making me gooey!!! Kelp cupcakes is genius…I’d say that’s good parenting right there 🙂

  • Thank you so much for tagging me lovely! I adore your list, it’s so sweet and genuine. I should really take a leaf out of your book and laugh at the toddler tantrums too – they still completely overwhelm me and I daresay I’ve had quite a lot of practice now! Xx

    • You’re very welcome lovely 🙂
      Haha I probably shouldn’t laugh, there are definitely days where they test me though!!
