I’ve been looking absolutely everywhere for some non-cheesy but still super cute Father’s Day cards and it’s so hard to find nice ones. A first Father’s Day is kind of special so I really wanted to get something we’d want to keep instead of popping in the recycling! I figured that surely I can’t be the only one having this problem...right?
So far, the best places for cards I found was Etsy and Not On The High Street as they seem to have more modern, fun designs instead of the usual photo mashup/ personalised name stuff.
For now, I’ve put together a (hopefully) helpful list of a few favourite card ideas I loved for a first Father’s Day...

So I’ve got a controversial question for all you new mums out there: when’s the last time you did something just for you?
The thing about motherhood is that it is so easy to get sucked into the vortex of looking after your baby that you forget all about looking after yourself. And, in my experience at least, the likelihood of you doing that is probably doubled when you are looking after a baby who is having problems with teething.

If you are reading this through puffy, sleep deprived eyes whilst drinking your third coffee of the day in a bid to stay awake, then let me start with this: one day, hopefully not too far from now, your child WILL sleep through the night.
In the meantime, I want to reassure you that you are so so so not the only one pacing the kitchen at 3.30am, trying everything in your arsenal to soothe your baby back to sleep at the same time as trying not to WEEP that another night is slowly ticking into morning, with both you and your baby awake.

If there’s one thing that being a mum has taught me it is that, just when you think things will never change, they suddenly do – often overnight. In fact, I’ve noticed that it’s often just when I start thinking, “OMG Minnie is NEVER going to potty train/sleep through the night/learn to read” that something shifts and it all falls into place.
The problem is, though, that changing overnight thing can cut both ways…as I found out the hard way when Coco started teething.

You know what I’ve realised lately? I think that almost anything important we undertake in life goes through a few teething problems in some form or another.
I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately because we are in the middle of renovating our house. But it turns out that that’s easier said than done when you buy a small damp cottage and then find out all it is made from is mud - well they call it Cobb but all I can think of is that it’s an expensive mud hut!
