The childrens father left the family home 20 months ago and between us we have been riding on a roller coaster of emotions whilst we sorted out the house, our finances and access to the children. We have had our ups and downs and if I am completely honest we have had more downs than ups. We have argued, shouted at each other down the phone, fallen out over texts and we have cried many tears. We have both met new people and are happy with our lives but it took time to accept each others new relationships.
Through all of the tough times I am pleased to say that the children did not witness any of the bad times. Don’t get me wrong they saw a few tears from me but I never told them what they were about. I would just say I was feeling sad. When the childrens father lived with us the children never witnessed ANY arguing or falling out between us and if you ask my children they will always say that. Even when he left the family home on some occassions when he would pick the children up we would have a laugh about something at the door and my children seem to remember that.
I have always been abit of a goddess in the kitchen, I take after my mother with that one and have always cooked for myself and the children homemade dinners using fresh vegetables and meat. From the moment my children started weaning onto food I started cooking for them and I pride myself on the fact that neither of my children have ever had one jar of baby food. Don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with giving babies jars of baby food it just wasn’t for me, I just couldn’t wait to cook fresh dinners for my babies. They have grown up having homemade food every night and I am so proud of them because both children are pretty good eaters and will try anything.
I don’t know about you but I love nothing more than a nice thick fluffy warm towel when I get out of the bath, because there really is nothing quite like the comfort and smell of a fresh quality towel to wrap around your clean body. When the children were tiny I loved wrapping them up in a fluffy towel after their bath, I used to enjoy sitting with them snuggling, until they had dried off.
A few weeks ago I had a lovely email drop into my inbox asking if the children would like to take part in a Pyjama Party with The House of Fraser. All the children had to do was pick a film of their choice and a pair of pyjamas each from the House of Fraser website and they could join in. The children could not wait to sit down and have a look at what was on offer. I knew straight away which pair of pyjamas Little Bird would pick and I was not wrong.
