The World of Pregnancy and Motherhood…

There was an article some years ago which my manager sent to me as a heads up for having children. I laughed, thinking motherhood would never be like that. How wrong I was! This article flagged up on my Timehop today following a previous share via social media.

With this article in mind at 615am today I set out for another morning of nursery and work preparation. However, you can guarantee when you need to be on time or you need it to run smoothly it just doesn’t. So here’s my “Welcome to the world of pregnancy and motherhood, as described by a member of Cooks Cabin”

A somewhat tongue in cheek post, but all true stories, all in Cooks Cabin, one of them today…

The Great Outdoors!

Cooks Cabin has made the most of the fresh, crisp sun since the new year and this weekend was like no other. Two full days of outings, one to Manor Farm Country Park with the hubster, J and Lexi, and another to Lee-on-the-Solent with family.

I don’t think I’ve ever really appreciated the beauty and sense of calm the sea gives people. It was lovely to visit Lee-on-the-Solent to see my cousin and her family today.

Sleeping {Ordinary Moments Week 4 – 25/1/15}

We have been incredibly fortunate to have a good sleeper, J has always gone to bed at 7pm and is up and raring to go at 6-7 in the morning, on occasions this fails due to sickness etc, though she’s been pretty consistent.

Daytime naps have always been just as good and for the last year or so she has always gone down at 12-1230 for an hour or two. However this seems to have taken a step in the wrong direction, J doesn’t want to go down for a nap and will fight it for as long as possible, my mum even walked her round the block on Monday which finally sent her to sleep! After swimming on Friday morning my ladybug finally dozed off at 130pm and today after a long walk at the beach she finally gave in at 230pm!

I fear very soon I am going to lose that hour of sanity all parents with toddlers and newborns cherish…nap time is on it’s way out! What on earth am I going to do???
