First Time Valley Mam

 

 

Words and Using in context.

I finally heard my 6 year old say ' I love you'. Z's speech has started creeping in and he's doing well, it's mostly requesting. So he'll say 'toilet, or toilet time' when obviously he needs the toilet. There's things I know he can say like the days of the week and...

Cardiff’s Winter Wonderland

We have been to Cardiff's Winter wonderland for the last three years, this year I was so excited to be invited* on opening night. This year there's no big wheel, thankfully as Z tries to get me in every year! But we were greeted to the Drop Tower, standing at 90m I...

No more pull ups!

So in April we started to toilet train Z, at one point I wanted to cry and quit, but we continued. When we finally mastered the art of peeing into the toilet we had to get the poo too. Disaster. In June I was buying a new mattress for my bed, as Z used poo as paint...

Bedroom art with Edu prints plus posters

When I got offered to review * some posters from Edu prints plus I jumped at the chance after looking at their website. There's so many lovely posters to choose from it was really difficult to choose just three! I know Z can read, maybe he won't always say things out...

Rock Of Ages

I was invited * to see the opening night of Rock Of Ages last night in New Theatre Cardiff. Off I went again not knowing what to expect. All I knew that it was a love story. Sitting in the audience waiting, I was taken back to drunken nights in my hours playing rock...

Term one complete

I can't believe we've finished the first term back already. Next term will be the Christmas concert!! We don't have parents evening until we go back after half term, but I'm hoping that Z is doing ok in his new class. He's always happy to go in maybe not so happy...

Stickman Review

Today we were given * tickets to go and review stickman at New Theatre Cardiff. I'd checked with the school to see if I could collect him and drop him back off and it was fine. So off we went for a little birthday treat! He knew where we were going as he was so...

Turning 6

Today you turn 6. For the first time ever you'll be closer to 10 than birth. 6, let that sink in for a while 6. I remember 6 years ago I was worried because they were bringing you into the world early, you made a quick screaming entrance and from that moment you...

The toddler stage!

I remember back when Z was around one, him and Iz were two days apart, she was doing so much more than Z, from pointing to talking. Z didn't point and certainly didn't talk. At the time I said I was eagerly awaiting the toddler stage, the one that they chatted away...

October, Baby loss and miscarriage awareness month.

So October is baby loss and miscarriage awareness month.  Where people light candles and share posts on social media. I know I did without knowing how hard being that 1 in 4 is.  Z who up until May, I wasn’t 100% certain but you can’t go through a confirmed...

Hopes and dreams

In a few weeks you'll be six. This time six years ago I had dreams and expectations one big one was going to express and you were going to be breastfed. This time five years ago you were signed up to school. This time four years ago I was still expecting you to do...

Rainman

I was invited * last night to see Rainman at New Theatre Cardiff.  When Z was diagnosed a few people told me he’ll be like rainman, this didn’t make any sense because of course I’ve never seen the film! All I knew was a man found out he had a autistic brother. The...
