This Mama life

Eat, feed, change nappies, wipe faces, entertain, sleep, repeat. Eat, feed, change nappies, wipe faces, entertain, sleep, repeat. Oh, not forgetting the coffee, concealer & poop explosions, repeat version of this scenario too! Ah, this Mama life, it’s a bit like groundhog day really, isn’t it?!

As a little treat to break our daily cycle, the boys and I bravely ventured out for a spot of brunch. Now, I say brunch because I could never possibly make it out of the house before 11am, how people mobilize themselves with more than one child before midday I will never know?!; and I say bravely, because well, my almost 4 year old ended up licking jam out of the pot and turning well, a bit feral (perhaps partly a Mama fail letting him eat sugary jam in public?!).

Two kiddos is certainly a juggle that I am slowly but surely getting used to- made easier by the fact that there are a few bits that never leave my changing bag whenever we dare to leave home; toys, outfit changes and of course my trusty Huggies Pure Wipes– I’m telling you now I’d be in a right pickle on our days out if I forgot those! With a jammy face and fingers from Grayson and a poo explosion from Roo, they certainly came to my rescue on this particular outing.

Both my boys suffer with dry skin come these chiller winter months, so I like to make sure the wipes I mop them up with are made with natural fibres* and pure water and are pure and gentle on sensitive skin –  all through day time to changing time, bathtime and bedtime. We’ve been quite lucky that neither of them have ever suffered from a nappy rash- but I put that down to using the best products we can get our mitts on. Which is why we choose Huggies Pure Wipes.

Despite the jam-pot-licking scenario from Grayson, the poo explosion from little Roo, and the fact that I ate my lovely veggie brunch one-handed (which I have discovered can be done with most food items and I seem to be developing a particularly good skill at it!), we had a fun morning outing together, with the help of ‘Nanny plum’, a few cars and my trusty Huggies Pure Wipes, we all made it out alive and in one piece- even if I probably acquired a couple more crow’s feet to add to my current collection.

This mama life can be hectic and all-encompassing, but at that very same moment, it’s so rewarding, beautiful, hilarious and precious. It’s the everyday things; sticky fingers,-the mismatching socks, the constant ‘sorry we’re late’ excuses. All moments I know I want to remember fondly when I’m an old lady with liver spots and silver hair sitting in M&S cafe sipping tea and eating prawn sandwiches, wishing my kids were there for me to clean up after!

  1. I love watching and reading about your Mama life and makes me wonder how mine will be! Chaotic I’m sure but a different kind of happiness that I have now!

  2. You have a wonderful family Hannah. It makes me so happy and proud as a mom. Without a doubt, it is the most rewarding thing in the entire world.

  3. It was too late for me to realize that my six-year-old marriage was only an episode, I feel that I try every time to convince my husband to love, commit and respect me as the queen of his heart but time worsened everything, he never changes to becoming the man I once fell in love with despite my humanly efforts.
    I was encouraged to share this review eight month after my husband’s loyalty was restored by a man I call my spiritual father; dr. wakina {dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail. com}. My spiritual father practically made our hearts unbreakable and our love 10 times stronger. We have been enjoying the benefits of his spell on us.
    Hope you are encouraged never to let go after reading this review? Note that there is hope and love on the other side only if you begin now to fight for the future. Thanks for your time.
