[ . . Wonderful Week . . ] Daily delights

Tummy time

Oops it has been nearly two weeks since my last Wonderful Week post but I have been a little bit busy attempting to be a Mum.

Every day it gets a little bit easier but I am still focusing a bit too much on the negative bits. In an attempt to snap myself out of it I have started to record the good bits of every day. I need to be able to look back and easily see the good bits, because there are actually quite a lot. The problem is that after a day of being screamed at with a wide awake baby I struggle to remember them and the bigger picture and get sucked into the baby vortex.

The idea is also partly inspired by Kirsty at Imperfect Page's blog which I read regularly and her beautiful things lists. As this is mainly a reminder for me I have set up a separate blog so I can post them easily on a daily basis.

I have called this record my daily delights - after all I do love an alliteration - and you can find it here.

So, since my last Wonderful Week post I have enjoyed a walk amongst the bluebells (I will blog soon), realised that sometimes selfish can be good and actually written some blog posts. But, more importantly E has acheived a lot more.

There is more playing and new noises. There has been tummy time in the sun and lots of kicking on his bouncy chair, which he is currently demonstrating whilst I type.

You see, it is all good.

I just need to remember that x


  1. It can be so overwhelming at the beginning and very hard to see the wood for the trees so to speak. That is why I love blogging so much. I go back and read what I wrote after Piran was born and I can't remember much of it at all!

  2. Thanks for the link, I'm really pleased that my beautiful things inspired you, although I have failed to keep up with it the last few weeks... I keep saying I must start again, and I will some day.

    Would you like advice about the screaming? I'm resisting the urge to say anything as I guess you may be fed up with people saying "is it this, is it that?" when you have tried everything! But if you'd like some ideas then say and I'll offer some suggestions. Alternatively, Mumsnet, although it gets bad press some places, is a goldmine for information.

    Your little baby is so beautiful and he looks so thoughtful in that picture. I feel quite weepy thinking of how mine are growing up!

  3. What a gorgeous photo! It's so good to actually stop and take time to remember the good things - so easy when you're sleep deprived for it to all feel like Groudhog day I think! You've definitely realised that a lot quicker than I did! :-)

  4. Thank you for the kind words everyone. The blogging is really helping me get it out of my system and acting as a diary which no doubt I will look back on one day and chuckle at :) . Kirsty, so glad you are picking your beautiful things back up! :) Also, I would love any suggestions you may have. To be honest he is a lot better than he used to be but I still find it the hardest bit to deal with. Lx


Please leave a comment, they make me smile and make my day x
