A Day In The Life of…

A Day In The Life of…

Sometimes things do not go as planned, sometimes you try and be Supermom, but fall short! Fall short because you ran out of coffee, your little one is Teething and decided that the day started at 4:30am!!! Yesterday was one of those days where I could have easily just rolled up and felt like nothing I did was good enough! (That is I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a mum to have the time to just roll up and feel sorry for oneself…)

Thankfully my little guy decided that wasn’t on! And so it became that we took a lovely walk with Grandmas old Pram, one giant Biscuit and the dogs desperate for some fresh air.


Yes the day might not have started how I had hoped, and yes Elliot is teething and therefore all my great plans of baking are paused do to him needing cuddles and closeness, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world! Taking Elliot on a walk and seeing him be amazed by the moving leaves, fascinated with the colours of autumn and positively beaming of joy because he is snug with a ginormous Biscuit, well that makes my day! And it reminds you what is truly important. The everyday adventures seen through the eyes of a 9 month old.

Just a few thoughts from me, a little snippet of our every day adventures.

  1. We all have days which don’t go as planned – the trick is making the best of plan B – and it sounds like you nailed that perfectly.
    Looks like your little guy enjoyed the walk and that giant biscuit 🙂

    1. I think he did! And thank you, I think it was just a classical case of mummy second guessing herself and feeling like ‘nothing is going to plan’ #familyfun

  2. So funny, I had exactly the same kind of day yesterday. My little baby girl who is also 9 months, would not sleep the whole day. I was in a bad mood and I decided to go out, in the park and get some fresh air. I am happy I did that, as in a couple of minutes Sofia was sleeping and I was a happy mum staring at her and enjoying fresh air 🙂

  3. You know I never appreciate this when I had my first child and now with two kids to manage, I can’t just get up and go. I can but it is a LOT of work. So if one has an early morning wake, then we are all just stuck at home till I feel alive again, a few hours later.
    I am glad you were able to make the most of your morning. When life gives you early mornings, go for a walk 🙂 #familyfun

    1. I bet it’s even more of a military mission to get two kids ready to go out! Hopefully your kids can play with each other too, and allow mummy to recover from the early waking 😉 xx

  4. I find that when I take time to think about how my daughter sees the world, everything appears so much better. It makes me so happy to see her get excited about the simplest things. Since the clocks went back last week, she’s been fascinated with the darker nights, and a couple of times she’s asked to look out of the window ‘at the dark’. It’s no big deal to us, but she was amazed by it. I love seeing her so excited and I try to feel a bit of that excitement too, and to appreciate the simple things a bit more. Although saying that, nothing makes her (or me!) more happy than a ginormous biscuit!

    1. Exactly it really is amazing to follow how they discover and are amazed by things we just take for granted. But yes if all else fails bring out the ginormous biscuit!! 😀 xx

  5. Awww this is so sweet and Elliott has the best smile EVER. : ) I have those days as well, totally know the feeling when absolutely nothing is going right. But then you look at that little cute face and their smiles and love all make up for it! Thanks for sharing with #GlobalBlogging! p.s. I LOVE the name of your blog, it’s very creative and fits perfectly!

    1. Thank you 🙂 this blogging world is all very new to me, happy you like the name, I thought it fit well too 😀 and yes thankfully their little smiles fixes most things! #globalblogging

  6. That is fabulous. I have days when it could all just go wrong and nothing right. It makes me happy though that with a smile from my son it makes it all right again. Seeing the world through their eyes is pretty wonderful. Definate advocate here for just getting out the house and eating cookies! Thanks for linking up to #familyfun

  7. Ah that’s lovely. Yes you’re right some days are tough but finding the positives in them is such a good thing to do and help us through hose difficult days. What a little cutie you have there. Thanks for sharing at #familyfun xx
