Dear 20 year old me ......

Pre twins, pre depression, I used to hate body hair and would rid myself of it every other day and I had an obsession with dying my hair as soon as my roots peeked out! 

Nowadays I can rarely remember the last time I shaved my legs .... They have out done themselves and were ( I've just sorted them out) longer than Jon's! 
I have been walking around with man legs!!!!

I've also let my hair turn into that dull mum hair where I don't really care what it looked like and the greys don't  bother me.

I gave myself a long hard look this morning and I heard my 20 year old self shouting at me! 

"Sort it out!!!!"

So.....

Dear 20 year old me,

I'm sorry I've stopped caring, 
I'm sorry I'm so tired all the time, 
I'm sorry I feel empty most days, but I will try try try my hardest to care as much for myself as much as I care for the boys! 
................
I will not let my leg hairs get disgustingly long, I will re kindle my friendship with my razor, I will re kindle my love for having nice hair! I will re kindle my love for myself!!
I will not let myself get into such a mess! 

If I don't I will allow you to come and give me a slap! 


Hair has been dyed the greys and inch long roots are gone .... Legs now resemble lady legs!

I have good days, I have bad days 
I am a mummy
I am a 29 year old woman.

I do not need to let myself go just yet!

Review || Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture

So its my cousins wedding this weekend and I'm having to make my legs suitable for public viewing! Usually my legs are hidden and the only leg skin that see the light of day are the bits that peak out behind the holes in my jeans.

I don't tend to get my legs out but when I do, I do like them to look good!
I'm pretty lazy when it comes to shaving my legs, and I will let them grow rather wildly if I have no reason to show them off! Obviously something Jon loves hates with a passion!
I was very kindly sent Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture , to try! The fact its an all in one really appealed to me, because.... I am..... a lazy shaver!

Potty Training Academy // Sticker Chart.

Ru has taken to potty training like a pro! He's had hardly any accidents and is no longer using nappies during the day.

I started him off in Bambino Mio training pants but after a day of a couple accidents he started taking himself to the toilet without any prompt from me.

I introduced him to his Potty Training Academy sticker chart on day one and he was very keen to fill it up, so even when he didn't need the loo, he would try and squeeze something out just to get a sticker.

We used both a toddler loo seat and the carry me potty, but he prefers to do his wee's just like his brothers...standing up. He sings putting out the fiiiire when he's weeing (god knows where he got that from! lol.) 

The first real test was sending him to nursery and seeing if he returned with a bag full of wet pants. I made sure the washing machine was free for his return but when he came home wearing the same outfit that he went in in was such a win.

The sticker chart was a great help with gett…
