I can’t quite believe I am getting to write this post. Ever since I was a little girl sobbing on the sofa at Dumbo, I have just loved all things Disney. My most prized possession was my Cinderella video and would beg my Mom to let me watch it at any given opportunity as I was besotted with the beauty of it all.

I remember when my friend went to Disney and I was so incredibly jealous. It sounded like the most magical place on earth.

I started looking at prices a few months back just out of curiosity. The girls having turned three have started to become “easier” if that makes sense? They’re more independent so the thought of travelling with them is less scary. Saying that I think they are still too young for Florida so that’s why we looked at DLP.

I thought I’d do a bit of a different post today as the lovely Steph at Mental Parentals tagged me, so here goes:



Are you a stay-at-home or a working Mum?

I was a working parent with Charlie but took voluntary redundancy when on maternity with the girls as travel and childcare was not viable.

Would you have it any other way?

There are days where I wish I had a job for myself but I love that my kids know it will always be me picking them up and dropping them off is nice. I also get to attend every school event and not had to miss anything which is very special.  View Post

My life seems to be full of clichés from strangers. As a parent of twins, I have pretty much heard every twin one going (double trouble/got your hands full etc etc) But as they’ve gotten older and dress so differently, I have a new range of probing questions. Bearing in mind my girls for ONE MORNING a week…I don’t even get to eat  lunch in that time slot. But apparently when you get three whole hours once a week you’re a lady of leisure.The amount of times people instantly ask the following, surely I can’t be alone? 

 

  1. Are you going to get a job? If I had a quid for the amount of times people have asked me that then I wouldn’t need a job ever! It’s the FIRST thing people say to me as I mention they have started at nursery. Now. Let me think. At present, they go from 9-12 on a Friday. Come September they will go every afternoon so fair enough asking. HOWEVER. hey officially start at 12.30ppm, then you read with them until 12.45pm so by the time I get home it’ll probably be 1pm. I have to leave the house about 2.50pm to go get C, so if anyone wants to employ me 1pm until 2.50pm every afternoon, term time only and subject to illness and school activities then YES, please do snap me up.
