Wicked Wednesdays #03

Time for Wicked Wednesdays again! I really look forward to reading everyone's posts and seeing their pictures. I actually haven't taken that many pictures this week, I have been really busy trying to tidy the house after Mr F destroyed it at the weekend doing DIY.

When people ask how I find having two children I am always able to say (a little bit too smugly) that I love it and they are both angels. We have been really lucky that Little G has never shown any jealousy. Until now....

On a normal day I usually take between 20-30 photos (more if you count the outtakes!). Up until 8 months ago they were all of Little G and she knew it. So now here we are with two daughters and the camera has to be shared. She does not like it one bit! 

I actually tend to take more photos of Baby L as I want to make sure I capture all of her firsts, I want her to have the same number of photos as Little G has of her first year. Little G doesn't tend to do as much now that she is almost 3. I mean she does stuff but just not 'firsts' you know?

The other day I was trying to get a photo of Baby L doing something, can't think what now. So there is me 'mamamamama' trying to get her attention, cue a fantastic smile ... ready press.... BAM! In jumps Little G, totally blocking the shot! Moooooooooooooooooooooove!

She always smiles so sweetly 'look at me mummy!' and I have to pretend that I am loving taking a photo of her when really I want to shove her out the way so I can capture a moment!! You can see Baby L's leg poking out haha!

It is really quite annoying but what can I do? Poor girl. Do your children have any jealous tendencies?

Don't Panic!!

I am sitting here trying not to worry, but I cannot help it. Certain things cause me to enter panic mode and until those things are resolved I cannot focus on anything. I sit there in turmoil. My mum always says KEEP CALM, DON'T PANIC! (She actually shouts in a comedy way, not sure why).

Wicked Wednesdays #02

It has only been through reading other posts and blogs, where I have found myself nodding along to various parenting crimes, that I have realised that I too am part of the 'bad mothers club'. Wicked Wednesdays over at Brummymummyof2 sums this up nicely as real mothers share something wicked from the past week.

The Liebster Award

I am so excited to be writing this post! Since I started blogging back in May I have noticed other bloggers being nominated and hoped that one day somebody would nominate me. Last week the lovely Jenna over at Tinyfootsteps tagged me in her Liebster Award post- big hugs to her as I was feeling a bit down about my blog and she totally made my day!

Wicked Wednesday #01

This is my first Wicked Wednesday post! I noticed the linky a couple of weeks ago but it has taken me this long to get my act together! I love the idea, post up a photo that is truly wicked for whatever the reason! I am not a 'perfect' mother and so this suits me down to a tee! 

My first entry is this charming photo of Little G after eating a Smarties cake. It was a boiling hot day and the chocolate had melted, resulting in an extremely gooey mess!

Do I love my baby?

When you become pregnant you hear tales of mothers not bonding with their babies. You wonder how these 'awful women' can be mothers and vow to love your baby more than anything in the world. Then as the pregnancy continues, and your hormones begin to rage, sometimes the worries begin to creep in and you may feel that you won't love that little baby growing inside of you. Most mothers go on to have their babies and all is well, but for some women this does not happen. They find themselves asking 'do I love my baby?' days, weeks and even months after the birth.
