Oh! The here she is Edit. ο»Ώ


Oh hi πŸ‘‹πŸΌ I’m back! 

Soz about the 7 month break I was busy muming, drinking coffee &  doing a gazillion Joe Wicks’ hiits to try and get rid of the mum gunt (I’ll save that for another post 😳) 

Slowly but surely getting into the swing of this Mum thing and then BAM something else happens and you’re like πŸ€” did I miss “a how to Mum course?!” because I am not equipt to deal with this…..

Let me catch you up real real quick. Ada Evs is nearly 9 months old … can you even believe that?! She now does not sit still, AT ALL! She’s on the move for a full 13 hours a day 😳 Wants to grab everything and move everywhere she’s army crawling, eating everything ( I mean everything…. she’s currently gnawin’ on the coffee table) she’s got a toothypeg and her favourite word & person is MAMA! (no bigs πŸ’πŸΌ)

Let me catch you up on me real quick. Well hastag mumlife is 100% the funnest & hardest job in the world. Not gonna lie some days I’ve absolutely got it nailed (like painting my nails whilst she’s asleep on me nailed… omg did I just pun?!) Then others I need my Mum and want to hide in the garage. πŸ˜…πŸ˜° *Disclaimer* this totes happened i drank a glass of rose hiding in the garage, you know for a little break πŸ˜‚

Best thing about Mummyhood – pretty much everything! Not being too clichΓ© BUT Ada laughing is legit the most amazing sound ever! 
Worst thing about Mummyhood – This teething lark. Not a fan! It makes for a tough long day! 

Anywho I’m going to get back to this blog every week, I’ll catch you up on the weekly dramas of me and the milestones of Ada. 

Thanks for reading.

peace xx

The 3 month edit.

So I haven’t written anything for a few weeks, because if I’m honest in my free time I’m either asleep, washing or drinking wine! πŸ˜‚

But I thought I’m due a post and somehow Ada is 3 months old already!
So I thought I would write a post about things I’d wish I’d known before she turned up;  

1. Big one! Losing weight is HARD! I genuinely thought I’d  diet for 2 weeks and drop the weight! WRONG… it’s a long tough slog. I don’t get it, I used to be able to survive on maybe 12 cuppa soups for the week and lose half a stone πŸ˜‚ But ooooohhhhh no….I’ve still got 16lbs to go 😱 Oh! And for the mums who do drop weight really quick… stop bragging and eat a biscuit πŸ˜‚

2. When people say sleep when she sleeps?! WRONG! Why? As I have to get shit done! Otherwise the house would look like a hovel, I’d be constantly living in pjs, i’d never drink a hot drink again & well I would never ever get to speak to Jamie.

3. Never say never; I genuinely never thought I’d let Ada sleep in my bed BUT when you are running off so little you will do ANYTHING for an extra hour. I mean anything? YouTube sound effects of hairdryers, washing machines and aeroplanes πŸ˜‚

4. Mum Guilt: I didn’t realise how much this would affect me but it totes has. It’s a real thing & it isn’t fair. You will feel it whether you think you will or not. The second you leave your bundle with anyone else you’ll feel like you’ve abandoned your post. I cried because I felt like she’d know and think I didn’t love her. πŸ˜‚ 

5. You time. Hand in hand with the above. The importance of time alone is essential! Even if just for an evening in the bath with a book. Don’t lose yourself, it’s easy to do. BUT you’re totes still a person not just a feeding, cleaning, napping machine! 

6. Life adjustment. BIG one this. I had no idea how much life would change. All be it for the absolute better but be prepared you are no longer number one! It’s an overwhelming feeling.

7. Booze. Justifying that 3rd class of wine…Because a hangover and a baby is NOT COOL! 

8. Every baby is different. Don’t compare absolutely no point! End of discussion. 

9. Hand in hand with above. Every Mum is different. So what if one Mum is using organic formula and nappies & you’re using formula and aldi specials!

10. Don’t sweat the small stuff.  In a non patronising way literally nothing is as important anymore. Baby love takes up so much in your life and you’re too tired to bother with anything trivial. Let it go πŸ™πŸ» (aka. Arguing about who’s turn it is too wash up πŸ˜‚)

11. You will be ridic emosh. Like a mental person. Your nail polish is chipped .. cry. You burn toast..cry. Watch This is Us holding your baby..cry for hours! It’s ridiculous you are a mental patient! Evens out tho.. thank the lord.

12. The nesting truly begins when you’re at home alone with bubs. Be prepared I’ve started getting all kinds of excited over Zoflora & steam mops. πŸ˜‚ 

13. The appreciation for your parents is at an all time high. I now feel so awful for every time I shouted at my Mum. The thought that Ada could ever do that literally breaks my heart. Soz Mum. 

14. It’s the hardest job in the world. Everyone says it and I never believed it but it’s true. 

15. You’ve totes got this! πŸ’πŸΌ
