Five Things I Learnt From The First Year of being a School Mum.

Five Things I Learnt From The First Year of being a School Mum.

Schools Out For Summer! Today is the last day of the the school year 2018/19. Lucas’ first ever year at school and also my first as a school mum. Another milestone passed and so many more years of schooling ahead of him. It seems like moments since I wrote this post about his first day at school. I was full of anticipation and worry of how he would get on. I read that post back and feel proud that he…

The Ramblings of A Guilty Mum – Nursery

The Ramblings of A Guilty Mum – Nursery

Previously, if you’d asked me what I thought about children going to nursery, I would have said it was the best idea. I would have told you that Lucas went from eleven months old. I would have told you it made him confident, independent and sociable. These are all still true. However, as Sienna begins nursery this week, I’m feeling mum guilt more than I ever thought I would. Our circumstances are totally different this time around. Sienna’s nursery place…

One

One

My beautiful baby girl,  Today you are one. Twelve months, 365 days in this world and yet, it feels like only moments since I was sat in the peaceful birthing centre at Pinderfields Hospital with you (all 9lb4oz of you) in my arms, wrinkly, new and fresh.┬áToday is your first birthday. You are my second born. You are my last baby. Daddy and I feel like our family is complete so, with no younger brothers or sisters to follow you….

The Roversi Routine

The Roversi Routine

Ages ago, I asked on Instagram (where I reside 90% of the time) what posts people would like to see on the blog. One of the responses was about our routine. Initially I thought “Why is our routine interesting or different to anyone else?” but then I thought that, actually, we have an unconventional life. My routine with two children works around my husbands working hours. I suppose our routine is slightly different. I’ve decided to focus on weekdays as…

I Hate Weaning

I Hate Weaning

There, I said it. I hate weaning. I just don’t get these people that say “oooh i love weaning, it’s so much fun watching them explore food!” For me, it’s a lot of pressure and a massive ball ache! Some say that parenting in general is a lot of pressure and I suppose it is. There is a pressure to parent them into half decent human beings that don’t lick windows/eat their own poop. With weaning though, there are so…

Relax & Sing, Wakefield

Relax & Sing, Wakefield

Every Thursday afternoon, Sienna and I walk five minutes down the road to a little community centre for her Relax and Sing (now called The Mummy Circle) session. It began as Baby Massage. More recently as she has started to do more than lay on her back and look slack, the sessions have evolved to “Active Baby” with singing, toys and sensory stimulation. Oh and cake, there is always cake and a cuppa.

What’s In A Name?

What’s In A Name?

Like the little Shakespeare quote for the title? Now I’m no longer going to be a Drama teacher, I need to wedge the theatrical side of me into other stuff – ha ha! It’s actually just an intro to a baby names post! The line is from Romeo and Juliet: What’s in a name? That which we call a rose By any other word would smell as sweet; Juliet is stating that Romeo’s name is meaningless. A rose would still…

The Guilt

The Guilt

Mum Guilt…that’s what a phone in on This Morning centred around. Stemming from the fact that one of the Kardashians had left her two month old baby to go to Coachella festival.
