Grocery Shop, Baby Strop

So I was scheduled to write Part 2 of my relationship blog post however, I have been side tracked by a mummy nightmare to say the least! For the purpose of the blog I’m going to name it “THE SHOPPING TRIP FROM HELL”

Just when I thought I had my S@#T together with this motherhood thing! My trusty newborn, reminded me that this is so far from the truth..

I was initially very sceptical about taking my now 7 week old grocery shopping, as I just pictured me being that mum in the store with the screaming baby getting looks from shoppers as they picked their tomatoes! However, on this particular day I decided that I would brave it! In preparation I fed my little boy and timed it for nap time! (1 point to mummy)

On arrival, I felt confident that I would be able to have a bit of a browse before picking up my essentials as baby would normally sleep for 2 hours…… However, nothing could prepare me for what would happen 10 minutes into my shopping trip!

My “little angel” began to cry. We are not talking a small cry, one that could easily go unnoticed, oh no, we are talking the mother of all screams like alarm bells screeching, Nails dragging on a chalkboard! After around the 3rd dirty look from the less than impressed shoppers, I took him out of his carseat (1 point to baby) and carried him round the store in one hand while I pushed the trolley in the other hand trying to throw everything I needed into the trolley at the speed of lightning! You can just picture it now can’t you my trolley crashing into others while I repeatedly say sorry while crashing into the fruit and veg stand, all this while he continued to scream the entire store down!

Phew, I made it to the till! (1 point to mummy). At this point I actually convinced myself that it wasn’t that bad. I was greeted by a lovely shopper who commented on how cute my little man was, as I turned him around to show him off (proud mummy moment)! He projectile vomited all over me! We are talking in my mouth, on my face, all over my clothes, all over his clothes! I just remember some one saying “some body get her some tissues” oh I needed more than tissues, I needed a big black hole, I needed a secret entrance under the till, I needed the floor to swallow me up! I needed A NEW SET OF DAMN CLOTHES!! I was then greeted by a shopper who asked “Is this your first child” as another shopper wiped baby sick off both me and my child! “NO” I stated “NO it’s not”.

At this point I was so ready to abandon my shopping and the baby 😂 (I joke) and make a sharp exit, never to return to that store again! When a guardian angel appeared, a fairy god father, a heavenly being, who also happened to be the security guard! This wonderful man cleaned the baby sick off my face, packed my shopping bag, and took it to the car for me, what an absolute babe! (10 points to the security guard)

Moral of the story: No matter how bad your days been.. Just think of me knee deep in baby sick being cleaned up by random strangers in the middle of a supermarket!

Who am I

Dear diary,

So who am I? I asked some of my closest friends and family to describe me in a few words as I found this question quite difficult.. amongst many words I was described as, a control freak, stubborn, selfless, wise, supportive, inspirational and “weirdly masculine” yes you heard right weirdly masculine.. don’t really know what to make of that but moving on swiftly!

Where do I start? (From the beginning I guess). Let me start by letting you know that I am by no means an expert at writing! However, I’ve been been on maternity leave with my second son for around 6 weeks and whilst off I’ve been looking for blogs and vlogs that I can sink my teeth into to help me overcome this daunting time that is the transition from one to two kids.. and how to look half decent while trying to conquer such a mission lol so far I’ve failed miserably! Whilst I have found some amazing vlogs and a couple of blogs I thought I would have a go at this blog stuff and share snippets of my crazy life trying to take over the world (with two kids in tow LOL, this should be fun).

So you have an idea of the kind of topics I will delve into on my blog I just want to give you a little “blurb” about my life! I’m a 27 year old city girl and a mother of two, to a crazy 3 year old who is currently going through the “I’m right your wrong stage” and a 6 week old baby boy who has literally arrived and taken over the whole household with what we call the enemy of motherhood COLIC (I’ll save that story for another day). While being a mother of two gorgeous boys I work full time in the Criminal Justice System, maintain a home (well at least try LOL) and have a fiancé who I’ve been engaged to for 7 years (ages I know again that’s a story for another day LOL). I’m a fun loving girl who loves to be pampered, go on girly dinner dates, shop and have a gossip over a glass of baileys, which I feel at times has been the topic of conversation amongst other mothers who feel I should be at home 24/7 baking cakes and never leaving my house unless I am with my children! Firstly, NO! I am a mother first, however I am an individual who deserves and insists on having me time, as should every other mother to prevent insanity haha! (Again I go off track lol). So to save us all some time I would like to list some of the stuff that is close to my heart that I will be blogging about, Motherhood, transition from one to two, how I juggle my career, family and fiancé, relationships, girl talk, stereotypes, fashion and style!

So I suppose you’re probably wondering the type of people I will be able to relate to during my dear diary journey (If anyone LOL). I would say, young mothers although I’m not super young I would consider myself still 18 in spirit! Working mothers, career driven women, mothers to be, those who are starting out in life with families, mortgages, Independecy and financial aspects of life and finally those who love to live and live to love!

I highly encourage comments, suggestions and questions from my readers as it helps me to get to know what you all like to read and whether I am talking complete nonsense ha-ha!

Can’t wait to start my journey with you all.. And connect with likewise women for a chin wag haha!!
