I'm all about the honesty and the (possibly slightly *over*) sharing. But sometimes I realise there are more complaints coming out than positive thoughts. Then I feel it's time to reflect on all the good in my life, how lucky I am, and to express gratitude. So here are five things I'm grateful for... 1. Having had a full night's sleep last night (first in a LONG time). 2. Looking forward to seeing my husband every single morning for our little chats. 3. Being able to work and mother at the same time (except when I can't - see last night's post). 4. Having the huge support of extended family and friends l. 5. Having a lovely home to live in, and a family to fill it with. Would love to hear your five?

"We’ve moved quite a bit in the past few years, which was how our decluttering started. Now we only own a couch, a small dining table, and our mattresses." Single mum-of-one and writer, Kay Haupt (@kayhaupt), on home life in rural Iowa... link in bio.

The reality of life with two young kids: baby crying cos he's desperate to feed, toddler clinging on because she's desperate for attention. Been sharing some thoughts over on Twitter about how best to get any work done with a baby and a toddler... I seem to forever be looking after/having to ignore one. Except for about two hours in the evening but working then (which is what I've ended up doing) means no rest ever. With the toddler in nursery two days, I can boob and rock baby into a slumber for a little while but no long stretches to work. How do you make it work, freelancing and looking after two (or more 🙀🙀🙀) kids? (Ps. If you don't have two yet but think you want to, it's also AMAZING seeing them together. Pure magic. And some days it's super easy to achieve loads. Just not every day). Xx

Following a smooth beginning to breastfeeding with my firstborn baby, I assumed round two would be even easier. I couldn't have been more wrong. But a whole load of you amazing mums came to the rescue and I've now compiled yours (and my own) tips for making breastfeeding more bearable in the early days... Link in bio.

So, what we going for folks? I'm a D2, Rich is a C3 (wtf???!) - seems I've been making his tea waaaay too strong for the past eight years. My parents request something resembling C1. Eurgh. #tea #getitright #theearlyhour
