CABS – A Home Birth Story

Time has a habit of distorting memories and I think with birth stories this is a good thing.  Not that I had particularly difficult birth that I want to mask I just wanted to wait before I started tapping out something so special and personal to me. As with the …

December 2017 Change is in the Air

As December 2017 and the year begins to close it puts me in a very reflective mood. Also an excited one as to the prospects of what the new year is going to bring.  Planning, plotting and basically thinking I can take on the world!  A change is in the …

Winter Snow Christmas Sensory Box

When I received some happy mail last month with the little foam package material in, I didn’t get disheartened by the mess opening it created. I turned it into opportunity by creating a Winter Snow Christmas Sensory Box.  What FUN! Squirreling the bits away into a box for a few …

Happy Days November 2017

It’s that time of the month when I take a look back at the happy days moments from the last month just gone.  Something I used to endeavour to do weekly has become a manageable monthly occurrence. Life has a habit of showing you the hard, and downright lows, especially …

Surviving A Long Train Journey With A Toddler – NO SCREENS!

We’re seasoned train travellers with our little Robot son. He’s 2 and while most our journeys are less than an hour we have destination south coast in our sights. Visiting Family that live across country with a fun-filled 7 hour train journey. Yikes.

With Christmas round the corner quite a lot of people will be considering catching the train to visit family. I figured it would be a good time to share with you a trip I made solo with my toddler back in the Summer. I was a tad daunted to say the least but knew we’d be okay.

Hello Baby Girl

This is just a quick short post to tell the TwoTinyHands world that the new edition to our family arrived here on Tuesday and we are all doing well. Meet my baby girl Chloe with all the family: Obviously I’m going to give her a blog name soon, it wouldn’t …

Baby Wearing – My New Bag!

Baby Wearing – My New Bag! Ever since the Robot was 3 days old I’ve carried him, in slings, wraps, carriers, buckles, whatever you want to call them I’ve done it.  I love the closeness of baby wearing and the bond we’ve shared. This post is a sort of carry …

Happy Days October 2017

The purpose of this post is to concentrate on all the happy things that have happened over the month. We’ve certainly had some happy moments but being heavily pregnant is starting to take its toll on how happy I can actually feel. I ache now, moving is slow, parent/friend support is spread very thin, poor Dave is juggling work and waiting for that moment I go “I’m in labour”. As of the 29th it’s not yet! I can’t wait… Let’s take a look at some of the happy moments of the past month.

Happy Days September

I can’t quite believe it’s the last day in September today.  It’s gone so quick and I don’t really feel like it’s been fun packed and as full as it could have been.  It’s all been about survival and making it through each day at the time.  We’ve definitely been …

A Pipe Dream, Reality or Hobby?

Becoming a parent, one that stays at home, does something to your confidence, it wrecks it, at least mine anyway.  I feel like I’ve become a little bit socially awkward and I often stay away from situations where I’ve got to talk to people I don’t know.   That makes me …
