Being a parent is one of the craziest, most terrifying yet rewarding journeys I have ever been on but it is bloody hard. I’ve wanted to start this blog for a while, I did try before but the timing was just all wrong but now I’m here and I want to share my experiences with you. First of all my name is Paige, I’m mum to two insane but beautiful little ladies, Aria and Isla and I’m in desperate need of a nap or three. I’ve been with my husband Dan for 8 years and married for 3 years; Dan loves cooking and getting on my nerves, so if I post pictures of food, he’s probably the one who’s made it. My two daughters have taught me more about myself in the last two and a half years than I learnt on my own in the first 20 years of my life. Therefore I’d like this space to be a place where I can be honest about our struggles, share our triumphs and maybe learn a few helpful parenting tips along the way.
The Crew –
Mummy – Paige
I’m 22, I’m 5ft8, which can be a pain in the rear when trying to clothes shop not online, I suck at cooking but rock at baking, so if you see any meals on here, thats probably the husband! I’m a stay at home mum, so get the delight of all the cuddles, kisses, demands and tantrums. But when I do get a moment to myself, to be Paige and not Mum (which is extremely rare) I like to read or binge watch something in my PJ’s with snacks, I like snacks.
Daddy – Dan
He’s 21, 6ft5, which makes shopping even more difficult, even online! Dan absolutely adores cooking, playing around and perfecting recipes and would love to own a little restaurant one day. Dan is into football, he supports Arsenal and therefore I seem to hear Arsenal TV everyday and he’s forever reading Sky Sports on his phone (drives me a little nutty).
Aria is Two and a half years old and I’m not sure how tall she is but she is tall, everyone thinks she’s older than she is, bless her. Aria loves playing outside and going for walks, no matter the weather. She’s a little obsessed with animals and always asks to either go and see them at the farm or zoo, or failing that, watching a David Attenborough documentary. She’s super cheeky, sickly sweet and so loving; she’s a picture of perfection, until the tantrums ensue.
Isla is 10 weeks old, so not really too much I can update you on as of yet. She is a super smiley little lady but she’s also pretty windy (Maybe the two really are related?) She loves being outside, always smiling and gurgling until she falls asleep, which is pretty often. She doesn’t particularly enjoy letting me sleep at night, but that’s babies, so I guess I can let her off because she does give some of the best cuddles.
