My first blog post – Here goes nothing!

I’m Leah, stay at home mum to 18 month old Roo (affectionate name, his name isn’t that quirky…unfortunately) and wife to Mr MaxiMumsy. For the last year and a half I’ve been thigh deep in MaxiMumming aka pouring my heart and soul into motherhood, raising this wonderful little boy. I’ve finally gained some clarity now I’m starting to get a little sleep (I know I shouldn’t talk too soon, it may spook and go away again) and finally I feel like I need to get myself back on track.

Australia Holiday – Day 1

It was an earlier wakeup call this morning than I had expected.  Given that I had barely slept at all, it was pretty rubbish to be woken at 5:30am.  By the time I had finished packing last night, I did my fake tan and sat around writing whilst in a squating frog like position it […]

2 week holiday abs countdown – Day 14

The toddler was awake at 5.50am, which wasn’t too bad, but I think i’m just residually tired from so many ridiculously late nights recently that I just felt like a wreck this morning.  Hubby was feeling far more chirpy than me, so fetched the toddler and brought him into bed for a feed.  I sleepily […]

2 week holiday abs countdown – Day 13

The toddler was up at 5.50am this morning, which was alright for hubby who went to bed at 10.30pm, but considering I went to bed just before 3am, I was feeling a little worse for wear.  Hubby brought the toddler into bed and I fed him for a while and had a bit more sleep. […]

2 week holiday abs countdown – Day 12

The toddler was up at 6am, I was not feeling quite so perky after another late night writing/procrastinating/doing holiday prep.  It’s so difficult to make myself go to bed at a reasonable time, because I have always loved the peace and quiet that you get late night/in the early hours of the morning.  I find […]

2 week holiday abs countdown – Day 11

The toddler was up at 5.30am, which felt like torture in comparison to the lovely lie in he had yesterday. Hubby wanted to see if he would settle, but I just couldn’t listen to him calling for us, so broke the rules and went to get him early. I brought him in to bed with […]

2 week holiday abs countdown – Day 10

It seemed like a miracle when I looked at my phone this morning, when I was woken by the toddler chirping my name.  I actually had to sit up and check it again, sure enough it was 6.47am, it may as well have been noon, it felt like such a lie in to me.  I […]

2 week holiday abs countdown – Day 9

The toddler was up just after 6am this morning, which was great and I was actually feeling pretty good when I got up, after his morning feed.  After hubby scooted off to work, I decided to work out a little, but the toddler was being a bit clingy so I didn’t think he would stay […]

2 week holiday abs countdown – Day 8

The toddler was up at 6am and I was groggy from yet another late night.  I got so immersed in my holiday research last night, that I ended up staying up pretty late and finally crawling into bed after 1am, oops.  It’s not exactly the best way to prepare myself for the lack of sleep […]

2 week holiday abs countdown – Day 7

The toddler was up at 6am on the dot this morning and again hubby leaped out of bed to grab him and bring him in to me for a feed, which was much appreciated. I was shattered as I had stupidly stayed up late to catch up with my writing, but at ridiculous o’clock in […]

2 week holiday abs countdown – Day 6

I got up at 6am with the toddler, who was on fine form.  I brought him into bed for a feed and we managed to, have another little doze as he fed.  Finally we got up, I grabbed some greek yoghurt with cinnamon, sunflower seeds and chia seeds, which was a nice light breakfast.  We […]
