When I became a mother, I believed my path would have been different then it has ended up being. I grew up watching my mum and Dad parenting me, my older sister and older brother and what an amazing job they did so when I became a mother I wanted to provide that for my baby and provide him with a family, a loving home and a happy life, when I became a mother I believed that this was the only way to raise a child and for a child to be happy and how wrong I was, know I am a mother and a single one at that I can know see that all I ever needed and wanted was a
Happy healthy little boy to go on adventures with and spend my days with. When I became a mother I realised that dreams don’t come true but maybe those dreams aren’t what you really needed and the dreams that you didn’t wish really do come true. I have my boy to myself, he has a loving family, a happy life and a loving home so yes when I became a mother the dream I never dreamt came true and that was you (Alfie white) you are my greatest achievement and to have you call me Mummy ever day and tell me you love me is all I need in life. Here’s to the single mums who do it all alone our dreams came true the day our baby’s where born and we realised it’s us against the world.

Taking pictures of the boys while they are asleep is always a little anxiety-provoking, and I have woken them up once or twice, but it's so worth the risk! 😴😴😴😴
This picture was especially nerve-racking because I decided to do something totally crazy....and remove their pacifiers! 😅

For two and a half years, my Mush and I have had a wacky little love affair... Now that there’s two in the mix, however, I hate to admit that it’s hard to find the time and patience to enjoy him the same way. For instance, I used to love it when he climbed on top of me, but now I worry he’ll suffocate his brother who I’m usually carrying. Watching Peppa is no longer our snuggle session, but yet another time I spend nursing. And instead of us dancing to all of Michael Jackson’s greatest hits, I have just enough energy to moonwalk through ‘Billy Jean’. It breaks my heart that I don’t know how to fix this because even though my love remains undivided, everything else is. And so I can only hope that when we do have our moments together, he is reminded that despite the arrival of a smaller mush, he’ll always be my baby ♥️ #emotionalmama#myfirstlove#momlife#momprobs
Here's the latest set up in my lounge. As you can see we've been taken over by so much plastic that it's infected my brain and I no longer care that there's a bright orange @aldiuk bag for life under my feature oak floating shelf 🤷🏼 SEND HELP.

My baby is two today! Not quite sure where the last two years went- time flies when you're having fun 😄 He's definitely kept us on our toes, our sweet little wild one- a real joker, his brother's shadow and I'm forever thankful I'm their Mama 💙
Today my husband has the day off so we're off to soft play and out for lunch before collecting our eldest from school and celebrating at home!
As usual I've got some gorgeous bits from other small businesses- I've tagged the pic (rosette is from Let The Fun Begin on facebook)🎉
😂😂trying to get a nice picture of us both - apparently Theo’s having none of it! 😂😂

Meet Jordan (1.5 years old) and Spero (3.5 years old). They often swap clothes (coz Jordan fits Spero's sizes better) and love each other like you've never seen two brothers love before (watch my insta story tonight) 💙 Yes, they fight over a toy car or train (or who gets to watch their show on tv) but my wish for them is to love each other and be best friends always 💙 #jordanconias#speroconias#mumofboys
Silence- the house is silent, there is no one making a million trips to the toilet because they don’t want to sleep, no one is hungry or thirsty or wanting a book. There isn’t any alarm set, or someone needing a midnight hug. No lunches to be made, no playing of games. There is just silence.
This silence means time with Dad, but it’s hard being Mum, I know I’m doing the right thing, but the right thing sucks. I’m being selfish, I want our kids to myself. I know the importance of building a relationship with Dad, but it’s hard being Mum. I wonder if this is what it feels like for Dad? The silence. I wonder if he realises how hard it is being Mum, a Mum sitting in silence but the silence in this house says ‘Mum did everything right’ the silence in this house says ‘mums a great mum’ the silence in this house says ‘we have two parents’. To often kids are used as pawns because the silence is too hard. It’s hard to forgive a person who hurt you, it’s hard to say yes to being alone. It’s hard remembering your children have two parents due to anger and pain and sadness and fear.
I want to make sure my children understand they are loved by both parents and that love is why Mum was happy to sit in silence. (I fully understands that ALL situations are different, and some people’s silent times can be stressful, and anxiety ridden but I’m blessed in knowing my kids are safe and loved) #parentingblogger#singlemum#mumlife#soloparenting#coparenting#kidsofinstagram#mumofboys#mummyblogger#charlottetalksalotofshit
Here’s to 5 days off 👌🏻.!Chilling with my 2 babies ♡, need to move but this is far too cosy. Also, notice the 2 stretch marks above my belly button? Any recommendations on creams/oils to help ?
