Monday looks abit like this. Olivia has this thing with hiding things...especially my door keys. So I have spent the last hour trying to find them. Same thing happened on Friday and we almost didn’t leave the house (which isn’t a bad thing as we spend a good chunk of the day in the garden) Thankfully they were found in her sandpit, clever hiding place ay! I think she wanted Mummy to dig for treasure.
If you were a toddler, where would you put Mummy’s door keys?

HOW TO THROW THE ULTIMATE CHILDREN’S PARTY (New blog post)
.
.
Organising the ultimate children’s party takes military precision, a great deal of brain power, a shed load of creativity and not to mention time. Hands up, if you don’t have the time or you’re a little stuck for inspiration yet want to give your child a party to remember? Both my hands are firmly in the air. .

So what now? .

‘WILDE COCKTAILS’ @mrfoggsgb with @thecuriousmummy IS COMING SOON!! (As soon as I have finished mastering the dark art of iMovie) #wildecocktails #cocktailhour #funtimes #thecuriousmummy #bloggers #vanessawilde #mrfoggsresidence

Milestones are not just for kids. Us parents go through them too. The primary school mile stone is upon us and in five months from now my little boy will start primary school. Primary school?!? how did that happen?! I’m a little shocked at how quickly time is racing. We have been talking about it with just about everyone. Seeking advice and opinions about the excellence of our school choices and today we learn where Finn will go. Future decided, just like that. Think I need a cuppa and a lie down. Wishing all the mamas & papas of Pre-schoolers the best of luck for your primary school choices.

All Lola's suspicions were confirmed when Sky offered to rearrange her cushions. #thecuriousmummy#matty_bass_theouters#mrlazard#poodlesofinstragram#poodles

Monday does not look like this. This was taken yesterday at @mrfoggsgb in Mayfair when my ever so wonderful husband @thecuriouspapa took over the childcare duties so I could catch up with an old buddy. Despite being away from the kids, I spent the entire time talking about them. When I got home, I discovered that Finn was inside the box of his new @officialscalextric (because playing with an empty box is rite of passage) , Daddy was ‘testing out the new Scalextric’ not the box and Olivia was sound asleep. Now I know what they really get up to when Im away. Maybe I should go out more often...well that is providing Finn stays away from the box (see my stories) .

Today the hubster is back to work and I’m back to normal #stayathomeparentlife i.e. running in between various play dates and classes. Yippee😉Anyhoo, happiest of Monday to you all❤️

Today I got to hangout with one of my oldest TV buddies to talk motherhood @mrfoggsgb in Mayfair. It’s amazing how much our lives have changed since she pretended to faint in front of @kategarraway at @edinburghtvfest and I had to explain that she didn’t need CPR. Instead of talking ‘shop’ we instead discussed our most embarrassing motherhood moments and between us we have a fair few. Oh the glamour. Anyhoo, hope you’ve all had a chilled Sunday. I’m about to write a new recipe post which will go live later this week so stay tuned. .

It’s been a fun week with these two, although on Friday I had a moment. I was at Balham Station, carrying the buggy single handily down the stairs, whilst keeping an eye on Finn as he made his decent into the @londonundergroundofficial . When Olivia decided to empty the contents of her water beaker out on me and herself. I stopped midway, to confiscate the beaker. She thought it was hilarious. I might have muttered an #adultword under my breath, yet still beaming the toothiest grin possible. Finn was still walking, so I picked up the buggy and out of nowhere this beacon of light appeared and took hold of half the buggy. This wonderful soul had witnessed my misery and helped me when i needed it the most. I wanted to hug her but I would have appeared slightly deranged. Especially as my jeans were saturated from the crotch down. Instead, I thanked her a million times & got back to that toothy Mum grin.
I have to say there has been so many amazing people on the tube this week, who have either helped with carrying the buggy up & down the stairs or have offered entertainment for those long tube journeys. Traveling with the 2 under 4 can be tricky at times so if you see a mama out numbered by her kids, offer some help even if it’s a smile. It will honestly go a long way.

The Easter break has been so nice but quite full on. Everyday there has been a monster activity and today is no different. We’re are off to @kewgardens for the Peter Rabbit trail. I’m hoping the weather stays dry so I can get some nice pictures from our day. Hope you are all surviving the easter holidays. What fun things have you been up too?

Here she is, dancing in front of the mirror when (she thought) no one was watching.
This picture was taken over the weekend at my brothers new house. Olivia sneaked off upstairs into one of the bedrooms, found a mirror and began singing & dancing without a care in the world. Before she realised I was there, I walked in & started to dance. The look on her face when spotted me was priceless, she could not stop laughing and then joined in. .

Apologies for the grainy picture, this was me happily smiling at the beginning of my Labour with baby number one.
This time four year ago, I was a few hours away from being a Mum. Feels pretty surreal to think I was ever without child, let alone anticipating the birth of baby number one. It was Thursday evening in 2014 and I had emptied the midwife’s medicine cabinet of paracetamol, gas & air, pethidine and a fat epidural. Yep, my inner hippy wasn’t in the delivery room. She had decided the hospital wasn’t for her and was hiding out in my birthing pool which I had left at home 3 days before. Bitch. My dreams of a Home birth had been dashed after my waters had prematurely ruptured without a twitch or a twinge. Fast forward through an induction and the rest is history. This time four years ago, I was so excited to meet our first born, yet today was all about embracing his excitement. .
