Mumful Minutes  ❀️ Mummy to two girls πŸ‘­ πŸ’› From Manchester πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ πŸ’š Finding ways to find time for me too πŸ’™ πŸŒ·β˜€οΈπŸ“πŸ’†πŸ» πŸ°β˜•οΈπŸ·πŸ’…πŸ» πŸ’œ #mymumfulminutes πŸ’– #makeitmumful

Do you spot a theme in our bedtime reading?! 😬 We have a family dental check up on ThursdayπŸ‘¨πŸ»β€βš•οΈ but we have a bit of an issue...last time we went the dentist checked the Little Miss’ teeth first by putting his fingers in her mouth to open it. She didn’t like it and cried...my Little Lady was upset that he β€˜hurt’ her sister and wouldn’t let the dentist see inside her mouth at all 😳 Being who she is, she obviously hasn’t forgotten about this πŸ™ˆ we are reading the books and I have bribery waiting for her when she’s been! (A hula hoop 🀣) any other tips? πŸ™πŸ» it probably doesn’t help that I despise the dentist too although I try not to let it show 😒 Help please friends!!!!!

Well Dinky Dot, you arrived in this world in a bit of a rush and in the past two years I don’t think you’ve stopped πŸ˜‚ You are the cheekiest, most loveable little monkey I know πŸ’ you brighten the day of anyone who crosses your path β˜€οΈ Thank you for being your sister’s best friend and co-conspirator πŸ‘­ Please don’t change...ok maybe change the sleep issues 😴 I love you so much (so much that I’ve even messed up my instagrid pattern for you 🀣) Happy Birthday Baby Girl πŸ’•

🌟 Parenting hack 🌟 I first saw this idea on @mrsemilynorris YouTube channel πŸ‘ŒπŸ» I found the extra large pill boxes on eBay and filled them with snacks and treats for the journey 🍭 they kept them going all day and it went down incredibly well with both of my girls πŸ’• it was worth the little bit of extra organisation, we would definitely recommend it and will do it again πŸ’« .

We made it!! The captain looked familiar though 🀣 Jokes aside, the flight itself wasn’t too bad ✈️ it was only just over 2 hours but with the Little Miss restless on my knee it was long enough! Hotel seems lovely and they’ve upgraded us to a suite πŸ™ŒπŸ» so there are two separate bedrooms and a lounge. The girls are sharing though...wish us luck with that πŸ€

Newsflash! Spare time doesn’t really exist when you are an adult, let alone a Mum! πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ So when you actually want time for yourself you have to MAKE IT 🌟 Put it in your diary if you have to, I do πŸ‘πŸ» Every Sunday I’m going to a @hiit_fit bootcamp with the lovely @tomnashpt and @mattquirkpt and getting myself strong(ish) and lean(ish) πŸ˜‚ You will find me at Stamford Park at 9am with the awesome @franchiorando looking pretty sweaty but smashing it πŸ’ͺ🏻 and having some giggles along the way 😘

Round the corner, not far away, Bing begins...his two week hibernation in the freezer 🀣 We arrive back home from holiday two days before my Little Miss turns 2 πŸŽ‰ but I couldn’t not make her a cake 😱 so this morning I made her a #bingbunny cake πŸŽ‚ She just LOVES Bing 😍 and her reaction was definitely worth it 🌟

Don’t let the little ones ringlets and big brown eyes fool you!! She is an absolute monkey πŸ™Š if you have followed me for a while you will know about the sleep trouble my Little Miss causes me 😩 her latest phase is messing around for an hour before falling asleep 😀 I don’t know if I need to shorten her lunchtime nap (which she still definitely needs!!) so she is more tired for bedtime?? Any suggestions?!?!?

This photo pretty much sums up being a mum to two girls πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Everywhere you go in my house you will be within touching distance of a hair bobble EXCEPT WHEN YOU FLIPPING NEED ONE!!!! πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ I seem to constantly be buying packs of bobbles because I’ve not been able to find any, to then discover 15 on the table 😫 Can anyone make any sense of this madness?!? .

When I was at university, Thursday nights were *the* night to go out πŸ’ƒπŸ» (I went to Leeds and it all about β€˜Tequila’ at Bondi on a Thursday πŸ™ŒπŸ») Now I’m a few (ahem!!) years older, even the memories of those nights makes me tired 🀣 It’s not yet 8:30pm and I’m off to watch my iPad in bed πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Today was one of those days that only a trip to @yogberries_limited could fix 🍦 it started at 4:40am (not a typo) when the Little Miss wanted to start her day 😱 causing bad moods all round 😀 I then managed to lock my keys in my car at Sainsbury’s 🀬 and had to be rescued by my dad who needed to go to my house to get the spare car key 😳 After a nap for the Little Miss, we NEEDED a yogberries πŸ“ followed by a trip to the park and early bedtimes all round πŸ›Œ
Please tell me I’m not the only one who’s done stupid things due to sleep deprivation?!?! πŸ™ˆ
