~ ALIENATE ~ verb ~ Make (someone) feel isolated or estranged. Ava and I have recently been subject to being isolated from a situation due to the fact we don’t have a Y chromosome. You would think in this day and age we could rise against our little gender boxes and the “I can’t play with you because you’re a girl” messages would be eradicated but alas they are not. I’ve said it before and I will keep saying it. I’m raising a strong, brave and beautiful child. Who won’t listen and be subjected to “you can’t do that because you’re a girl”, “that’s for boys”, or any of those other inequality messages. I will not let people isolate and insult her because she’s a girl. She will grow up in a world where she CAN do things and not be restricted by prehistoric views.
She will have friends of every gender, race and religion and be INCLUSIVE OF ALL because that my friends is what the FUTURE WILL BE! #themuddymummyblog #dontalienate #equality #equalopportunity #equalopportunities #genderequality #futurewillbe #shecan #shewill #strong #brave #beautiful #strongbravebeautiful #inclusive #allinclusive #inclusiveofall #raisingthefuture #raisingthemright #raisingthestandard #raisingthenextgeneration #raisingchildren

~ DADDY’S NAIL PARLOUR ~ Ava noticed this morning that her nail varnish was chipped so we had to restyle her toenails. She loves to “help” by holding the pot whilst your painting. Which is slightly terrifying prospect. I managed to get this lovely photo of the two of them. 💚😍 #themuddymummyblog #ava #nailparlour #nailvarnish #toenails #daddynailparlour #daddynailsalon #toddlerlife #toddlernailsalon #daddydaughter #daddydaughtermoments #twoyearsold

~ IN THE LONG GRASS ~ Just around the corner from our house is a lovely large open area. Full of extremely long grass. Ava had a fantastic time. Touching, lying in it and generally just having fun. 💚 #themuddymummyblog #ava #inthelonggrass

~ SPIRIT THE NEIGH ~ Ava is absolutely in love with her birthday present from @lewby07 She’s called him Spirit after the film/tv show. She reenacts scenes from the tv show with him. It’s definitely one of the cutest things ever. 💚 #themuddymummyblog #ava #spirit #reenactment #imaginativeplay #spiritridingfree #toddlersofinstagram #toddlersimagination #horseplay #rockinghorse #netflixoriginal

~ WORK BUDDIES WITH THIS ONE 💚 ~ Had a lovely first day and even more great was spending time with Jimms. We got to have lunch together, and commute together. Here we are on the way back from @waitrose with our free coffees in our reusable mugs. 💚#themuddymummyblog #husbandandwife #husbandandwifeteam #husbandandwifetime #bestfriends #coffeebuddy #coffeebuddies #coffeetime #waitrose #waitrosefreecoffee #gildridgepark #workbuddy #freebie #reusablemug #nopapercups #lunchtime #mondaylunchdate

~ FIRST STRAWBERRY OF THE YEAR ~ Ava and I enjoyed the first two strawberries of the year yesterday afternoon. They were so deliciously sweet. The herb bed is covered in Strawberry plants so here’s to lots more this Summer. 🍓 #themuddymummyblog #firststrawberry #firststrawberries #firststrawberriesoftheyear #growyourownfood #growyourown #homegrown #grownfromseed #strawberry #strawberries #summer #summertime #garden #gardening #mummygarden #mummygardener

~ ROSES ~ Have been meaning to take a photo of all my roses for the past week. 2 don’t have any flowers on yet but these 6 are looking really good. 🌹 #themuddymummyblog

~ WHEN ONLY TWO LOLLIES WILL DO ~ Ava and I spent the afternoon gardening. Whilst Jimms did some bits inside the house. She suddenly disappeared off inside to the freezer and told Daddy she needed a lolly. 😂 At first a Fab would not do, but once outside the 100s&1000s were calling from their freezery home and she had to swap. 😂 Mummy got given the castoff Rowntrees until we had to “swap now” every 4 licks and I had to “lick quickly” to “stop” it “dripping”. 😂 #themuddymummyblog #ava #twoyearsold #toddlerlife #toddlersofinstagram #icelollies #fab #fablolly #rowntrees #rowntreeslolly #garden #saturday #whenonlytwolollieswilldo

~ DUPLO NAME THAT FILM ~ First 3 are Jimms’ last one is mine. Guess the films in the comments! #themuddymummyblog #bankholidayweekend #fun #guessthefilm #guessthemovie #duplo #duploscenes #duplomoviescenes #duplofilm

~ DUPLO NAME THAT FILM ~ Just for fun. Several weeks ago Jimms sent me several scenes from films made from Duplo. It’s now become a thing in our house. It’s so much fun to try and think of new ideas each time. Coming up next on these little squares some of Jimms’ masterpieces and one of mine. #themuddymummyblog #duplo #duplonamethatfilm #moviescenes #duplomoviescenes

~ MEMORIES OF OUR WEDDING ~ Had a lovely time watching the Royal Wedding this morning with Ava and it got me thinking about mine and James’s wedding. Here we are 5 years ago. Marrying my best friend. Would be amazing to see everyone else’s weddings! use #letsseeyourweddings 💚 #themuddymummyblog #weddingday #royalwedding #ourweddingday #maggiesottero #beautifuldress #nototopsandtails #pauldemuthphotography

~ MEASUREMENT DAY ~ One month ago I decided I would take my measurements and set myself a goal. In 4 months 8/8/18. I wanted to have lost 10lbs, 10cm from my waist (both bits 😂) and 10cm from my hips. Today I retook my measurements. I’m really pleased with the results so far and several people have complimented me saying “you look like you’ve lost weight”. For the past week I’ve been doing @bodyfitrevolution.co.uk May challenge. This week our reps multiply so wish me luck. 💚 #themuddymummyblog #themuddymummy #mumfitness #onehundredpoundstolose #ninetyfivepoundstogo #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #healthymum #healthymummy #pcos #pcosweightloss #pcosweightlossjourney #pcoslife #mumsofinstagram #mumsofinsta #weightlossjourney

~ A TEAPOT ~ Yesterday Ava joined me for my breastfeeding peer support class as she didn’t want me to leave her at the crèche. We were given various images and quotes to look at around the history of infant feeding. When the class was asked “What we thought this image was of?” Ava proudly answered before anyone else, “A teapot.” 😂😂 #themuddymummyblog #themuddymummy #bfpeersupporter #bfpeertraining #peersupport #breastfeedingpeersupport #ava #teapot #feedingvessels #toddlerinclass

~ BOOK CLUB READ ~ So I’ve joined a book club on fb run by my bf. Each month or two we are going to be reading one of the books from the @usborne_books young adults range. A way to get us all back into reading after having families (Although not exclusively aimed at Mums and Dads) and give us some “me” time. So far I’m 7 chapters in and really enjoying reading Am I Normal Yet? By @hollybourneya If anyone is interested in joining the book club dm me and I can go through the details and add you to the group. 💚#themuddymummyblog #mummytime #hollybourne #hollybournebooks #aminormalyet #reading #bookclub #cuckoocorner #usbournebooks #gettingbackintoreading #mentalhealthawareness

~ PJS IN THE PARK ~ Ava has been quite unwell for the past 24 hours. With a racing heart rate and high temperature but over lunchtime rallied to ask to go to the park. So we jumped in the car and went down to the road to Upper Dicker and found this absolutely beautiful gem of a park. Lovely wooden equipment. Completely empty. Large grass playing area. Will definitely be our park to go to in future. Ava loved being out in the sunshine plus the added bonus of being in her pjs. This afternoon her temperature has calmed down and she was semi back to her normal chatty self. 💚#themuddymummyblog #themuddymummy #outside #sunshine #ava #pjsinthepark #pjday #feelingpoorly #upperdicker #upperdickerpark #almosttwo

~ CAKE MAKING ~ This afternoon Ava and I had a fabulous time making some little cakes together from a cake kit. It was our first experience baking together and I took several little films of the whole thing. From watching the film back all I can say is lots of love, licks and kisses went into our finished cakes. 😂🙈💚 #themuddymummyblog #ava #bakingtogether #toddlerbaking #toddlercooking #daddysapron #daddyschildhoodapron #crackingeggs #lickingspoons #kissingcakes #cakemaking #cakemaker #starbaker

~ THROWBACK ~ I know it’s not #tbt but just saw this picture on my fb from a year ago. Wow look how different Ava is. #themuddymummyblog #ava #oneyearago #oneyearagotoday #throwback #twodaysearly

~ WOMAN OF THE FUTURE ~ Happy International Women’s Day. Here’s to raising a strong, intelligent, brave, caring, compassionate and beautiful woman of the future. May you always be able to go and achieve everything your heart desires. Here she is today in her “boat” with one of her many bears. 💚 #themuddymummyblog #internationalwomensday #ava #womanofthefuture #womenofthefuture #intelligent #brave #compassionate #caring #beautiful #achieveyourdreams #makingmemories #boat #playtime #littlelady #thefuture
