Sian – Monday’s Modern Families

Sian is a full time working mummy; living in the greenery of Berkshire and commuting into London every day. She spends her time trying to find the elusive balance between working hard to save for a house and being with her little toddler, H. Her greatest loves in life, aside from her son and hub of course, are list making and collecting an unnecessarily large amount of notebooks. Sarcasm and swearing feature largely in her daily vocabulary, much to her husband'a dismay.  Until I was 27 years old, I had been very vocal…continue reading →

Jenny is a full time mum to 3 young boys. Kyle (9), Nate (3) and Hugo (14m) who are slowly turning her hair grey!. When the boys are in bed she turns to her alter ego – KyNa Boutique, an online organic clothing store for 0-6yrs.

When your outside looking in we look pretty normal, if you…continue reading →

We are so excited to relaunch our series of Monday's Modern Families and are really happy for the lovely Fi from Childcare is Fun, to share her story with us. We've meet Fi several times now and are happy to report she's just as lovely as she comes across on Twitter. Our Modern family It's still strange for me talking about about 'my family' because once upon a horrid time we never thought we'd have one. Infertility sucks. It's one of those rubbish things that everyone tries to empathise with but unless they've been…continue reading →

Laura – Monday’s Modern Families

This weeks post is from Laura, she shares her story about Samuel. From Samuel's very first check up at the doctors at 8 weeks I knew something wasn't right. Even though he said everything was fine I couldn't settle. I asked for a second opinion and was referred to the local screening clinic. It took around 6 months from then to finally get a diagnosis Samuel never tracked objects, he never acknowledged you when I entered the room, never made eye contact while feeding and those precious first smiles took a long long…continue reading →
