Mama Down

I’m usually a positive thinker and I am grateful for every single thing I have in my life.  From the smallest things, to the biggest of things, like my beautiful daughter. But sometimes, it feels like no amount of positive thinking can stop the negativity from seeping in… A couple of weeks ago I found […]

Halloween Paper Plates

I love messy play sessions with my daughter and niece. I think there is nothing better than getting the paint and craft things out and letting them have at it. Having fun and making a mess.  With Halloween just around the corner, my sister and I thought we would use it as our inspiration, and […]

Messy Monday, Crappy Crafter!

I absolutely love all things craft related; whether this be painting, drawing, making jewellery, pottery or whatever… If it involves crafting, I love it. I’m always saving pictures and links to things I can attempt to create at a later date, whether that be by myself or with my daughter, Molly.

Why does my child hate me?

Why does my child hate me? Okay, I know she doesn’t really hate me; she is two years old, she doesn’t know what hate is. But I tell you, it sure feels like she hates me sometimes. This week especially! I would even go as far as saying that this week has been torturous, and […]

Screw You, Night Terrors!

So it’s official; my 2 year old daughter, Molly, has night terrors! And there is absolutely nothing I can do about it! Well, I can give her a massive cuddle when it’s all over but that is about it.

Parenting isn’t easy, we all know that. Why isn’t there a manual to show us what to do? But, we are all in the same boat, which is comforting in a weird way. I don’t know about you but I have found that being a parent can take you on a completely unexpected journey self-discovery. […]
