RootsandWingsParenting online baby massage course review

(This post first appeared on www.meetother mums.com)

I love the ethos here at meetothermums.com; not only does Sally (aka meetothermums) help mums to find their #mumtribe, but she also showcases great blog posts from fantastic members of the #BlogSquad. One of the best things about being part of the #BlogSquad is connecting with other #blogsquad members.

When Alexia, aka Roots and Wings Parenting, a fellow #BlogSquad member, invited me to take part in her unique RootsandWings online baby massage course, it was an opportunity too good to miss.

I suffer from milestone envy

(This post first appeared on www.meetothermums.com)

I’m not a ‘Competitive Mummy’ (I don’t think so anyway!) but I do suffer from milestone envy. This is the constant worry that my baby is somehow falling behind in his milestones as I watch other babies conquer them one after the other. I tell people that he’ll do it when he’s ready, but who am I really trying to convince?

Surviving without sleep

(This post first appeared on www.meetothermums.com)

I was a lover of sleep.

It had to be dark, not even a slight crack in the curtains.

It had to be silent, no ticking clocks or traffic noises.

It had to be flat out on my stomach in full starfish pose.

It most definitely was MY side of the bed (so back off!)

Now it’s a completely different story. But every now and then, I dare to think back to the good old days – or more specifically – nights. Where sleep was exactly that – sleep. Simple. Calm. Relaxing. I still am a great lover of sleep – but it’s not dark; it’s not silent; it’s not starfish and it most definitely is NOT my side. Just where did it all go wrong? A long, long time ago we decided to have a baby…

I got tagged by the lovely miss_mummy_life to write a blog post about rocking motherhood. I’m really glad she tagged me as it’s made me look for the positives in my motherhood journey so far and give myself a pat on the back! (It’s far too easy to be constantly critical).
