I'm a planner. Big Time. I research, guestimate, and prepare. I'm always thinking twelve steps ahead. I'm always organised. I've always got everything for any occasion in my bag. I'm always on time (usually a bit early!) It's one of my biggest strengths. Any one who knows me, knows if I want something I generally … Continue reading Hi My Name is Sarah and I make lots of lists.
A print hangs proudly in my house, I can't remember exactly where it was from, but I remember it definitely struck a chord when I saw it. Mother Knows Best. My own mother (as much as I love her) is always forthcoming in sharing her opinions, especially when it comes to babies, kids … Continue reading Mother Knows Best
Ask any parent of young kids what they remember most about that first year bringing up baby, and you can probably bet after sleep deprivation that teething is a hot topic of conversation. And oh yes, last week shortly after hitting the 6 month mark, baby L was sporting that all too familiar rosy, … Continue reading Teething : A survival guide for all SUPER MAMAS
I have an image in my head of how family mealtimes should be. Kids sitting quietly and happily round the dinner table answering enthusiastically as Daddy asks them about their day, whilst Mama dishes up a hot and healthy home-cooked meal for everyone which they all sit and tuck into with gusto. I'm pretty sure … Continue reading The Daily Battle Of The Empty Plate
So last week I embarked upon a mini 3 day holiday with the boys. My sister owns a beautiful little caravan in North Wales and we thought we might spend a few days by the seaside, leaving the men at home, drinking wine, and soaking up a bit of sun. My hubby was more than … Continue reading Sarah Said That On Tour: WELLIES & WINE – the joys of caravaning with kids
I'm really lucky to have made some fab mama friends over the past 3 years, and so happy to still be in touch with old friends, some of whom have also become mamas at the same time. I also have an amazing close-knit family of strong women and sisters who are also super-mummys. So this, … Continue reading An Open Letter To All My Friends… I’M SORRY
Contrary to popular belief I don't actually wear the trousers in our house (and sorry hubby, neither do you..). No, you see Nap Time is King of our Castle. And he's been gloriously reigning over us for nearly 3 years. You see, newborns are sneaky creatures aren't they? They're all cute dimples, nice smelling, marathon … Continue reading Nap Time RULES
There are lots of worthy adversaries us supermamas come up against in our day to day lives. I wonder what a Family Fortunes style mummy poll would bring out as the top 5? I can probably guess a few of the biggies - Naps, Tantrums, Teething, British Summer Time, Mr Tumble... Well, I'll take all … Continue reading The (Sand) Pits
It's taken me a little while to get around to this - namely because I was waiting for my bank balance and my ears to recover but as the summer holidays are almost upon us if anyone is considering taking the kiddie-winks to CBeebies land this might be worth a quick read before you go! … Continue reading Sarah Said That ON TOUR: CBeebies Land review
A little change of pace with this post just to shout out to all those amazing multi-mummys who I hope will nod and agree with me. And to all those second time round mamas-to-be awaiting their newest arrival - probably with a mixture of excitement and sheer terror at how baby number 2 will come … Continue reading All for one and wine for all!
