I’ve been postponing this post for a long time and I’ve been trying to forget the situations that we have been through. Reading other blog posts on this subject helped me realise that it’s time to tell our story. It also helped me realised just how unbelievably lucky we are compared to other poor souls.
Yes, we have had multiple miscarriages. This is our story.

I would never really describe me/us as a traditional person/family. I remember thinking as a child that traditional things are highly likely to be something boring, but now I’ve changed my mind.
Since realising that you can basically make your own traditions up, I feel more compelled to try out new things of our own accord and see how they work out.
When it comes to Christmas we still do everything the same way as was done when I was a kid. Christmas presents, visit family, advent calendars, Christmas music on the radio, Christmas TV specials, maybe even a walk out somewhere cold (and probably muddy). But since we have been parents, New traditions are starting to weave their way into our annual celebrations.

Here’s a selection of the demands I get to hear – some more regularly than others. A couple are from different children or are made up (I’m sure I’ll never be asked for a horse!). Seriously though, I do get to hear the most ridiculous demands:
“Daddy I want a horse!”.
“I want to drive the car!”.
“That’s mine!” (Any object whatsoever).
“I want to watch your tablet!” (4.32AM).
“I want a rainbow!”.
“I want cake!” (All day at random times).
“I want one of those for Christmas!”

When TrackR got in touch to tell me about their Bluetooth tracking key fob, I was delighted to get involved! Toddler E is only 2 years old and is forever picking up every object within reach and moving it to an undisclosed location, secret only to her!

Bad timing when you are already later than usual, after having to change a surprise ‘poo-bomb’ nappy…
Read more after the break where you can have the chance to win one of these great devices.

Toddler E has only just turned 2 and is already talking like mad. She just seems to pick up any phrase she hears and either says it, or attempts to say it. Dangerous time, let me tell you!
She does seem to be a bit young to be able to say these things, but hey she’s got competition to be dealing with!
Here’s a list of things she’s saying that she has picked up from our family and friends. Does anyone else have to put up with this level of abuse?:

Well ain’t this a fine thing? I did used to have mad hair when i was at school, but I don’t know where this resemblance has come from! Does she look like Keith to you? Haha.
I wonder what will happen if i play her the song?
