Back when the twiglets were babies, whenever I met a mum with older twins, one of the main questions I'd end up asking was ‘when will it get easier?’ Always spoken with a slight undertone of crazed desperation, meaning ‘please tell me it gets f**king easier, please, PLEASE!'' 🤣 The other day, as I got … Continue reading Has It Finally Got Easier?
Do you ever feel like your children are ganging up on you? Conspiring against you to send you into some sort of mental breakdown, while they no doubt point and laugh uproariously? I certainly do 🙈 I find that the twiglets behave completely differently depending on whether they're together or separate. Separately they can actually … Continue reading Outnumbered
A month or so ago, we started to potty train Cora. Henry wasn't ready (still p*ssing all over the house if I took his nappy off 🙈) and I figured I'd personally find it more manageable to do one at a time anyway, given that I wasn't sure how it was going to go and … Continue reading Twiglet Top Tips – the Potette

I felt utterly and completely overwhelmed in those first few weeks, even months, and constantly found myself wondering ‘is this normal?’ In the very early days, when we first brought our tiny bundles home, the midwives and health visitor … Continue reading How Do You Know If What You’re Feeling Is Normal?
I'm not too sure what the point of this post is going to be – in fact I'm pretty sure there isn't one. Basically I just wanted to have a great big f**k-off rant about how utterly SHIT the twiglets are at going to bed at the moment. Anyone who's followed me for a while … Continue reading Bedtime Battles – a.k.a. GO THE F**KEDY F**K TO SLEEP!
