My two P’s are supposed to be identical. We found at our 12 week scan that we were expecting twins and the sonographer couldn’t be certain, but as pretty confident that they were identical. Why you ask – here comes the science!    Identical Twins are known as monozygotic twins. This is where a single egg is fertilised by a single sperm – then splits exactly in half, creating two identical DNA sharing babies. They share the same blood type – and are the same sex. Now you may laugh at this, but the amount of my twitter friends with…

It was Charlie’s school picnic today. It sounded such a lovely idea – bring along your blankets and we will all sit in the sun with your children and friends LOVELY! Then after there’d be a show put on for them inside and then you can toddle off home early. sounded such a lovely afternoon. WRONG. Complete and utter chaos. Now I’m in no shape or form claiming to be an expert parent (did you not READ my bad mums club post?! but I’d like to think that at a family event I would keep an eye my son. Surely…

I was lucky enough to be sent a complimentary bottle of InfaCare Night-Time Baby Bath from the lovely folks @infacarebaby and it’s a winner with us! It comes in a huge 750ml bottle which is perfect for me with my twins! The bottle is a squeezy one – again a winner with me who hates waiting to tip out the last dregs of the bubble bath when it’s nearing the end The product itself smells absolutely gorgeous! I have quite a fussy nose so some bubble baths seem too extreme for me but this smells so good I could eat it!!…

Ill be the first to admit I was absolutely as dreading weaning as it was a sign my girls are growing up far too fast. However as they are now 7 months we are underway – I am just loving it!! I had a bit of a panic after doing the age old reading a parent book & saw that they were saying by 7 months babies should be having 3 meals a day – I panicked. Then took to Twitter where I was reassured by lots of lovely tweeps and picked up the mantra of “food is for fun, until…

I woke up on Tuesday 11th December 2012 praying my little monkey in my belly was ok (not to mention feeling awful and so so poorly sick) Dragged myself down to the hospital and lay across DH as we waited to be called into the scan room. When we were I apologised as I hadn’t got a full bladder as I could barely keep a sip of water down. They agreed to try to scan me so on the bed I hopped.  Many people have asked if I knew I was having twins or any inkling – the truthful answer…

The girls I was lucky enough to be chosen as a Mother & Baby magazine awards tester back in the summer. I was sworn to secrecy at the time so forgive me! It was amazing each day to get parcels of goodies to try and was lucky enough to get to keep most of the items so want to say a massive thank you!! Anyway as the awards have been announced & given out I thought I would share with you the ones I absolutely loved and it seems I wasn’t the only one! This was one of 3 pumps…

So this week I turned 28. A pretty boring age if I’m honest. However I hit this milestone with 3 children – something that I didn’t think was possible when I hit 27! It got me thinking though about the big 3-0. It seems like such a big deal to start a new decade and I admit the thought it a bit weird. I will suddenly sound really grown up when I say my age. I had Charlie when I was 23 so I’ve never had a wild hedonistic 20s and that doesn’t bother me one bit.  My dream 30th…
