Writing A Blog Post Because I Want To

It’s been a while since I’ve had the motivation, or even the inspiration, to want to write a blogpost. 

I got into the routine of just posting because it was what I thought people wanted to read, rather than posting what I wanted to write. So, I thought I’d start here with just a hello update (there’s been a few of them this year), because I think it’s nice to just have that sense of familiarity with my posts. 


My Top Tips For Potty Training - Getting Dry During The Day - Becoming Mumsy

She’s only gone and done it!

Edith, at just two years old, has cracked the potty during the day. Edith is now dry, with only a nappy at bedtime (for now).

We decided when the lockdown was announced and there was a very clear lack of nappies on the shelves in the supermarkets, and prices online had rocketed, so we would see if Edith was ready to potty train. It turns out she was, and she’s cracked it. 

I won’t lie though, potty training has been one of the hardest milestones for us to crack so far, and I also know it’s something that a lot of parents dread. I mean how many of us really want our child to wee on the floor?

Anyway, I thought it might be helpful to write a post about some of the things that helped us to help Edith.

The reward chart looks a mess because Edith kept rubbing it off!

My Baby Is 2! - Milestone Update

So, it’s been 6 months since my last post on Edith’s milestone updates. Edith is now two!

My little girl, who is fast growing to not be so little, is now a two year old. I can’t believe it. Everyone says it, but it really feels like a few weeks ago she was a tiny, wrinkly and slightly yellow newborn. How on earth have the past two years flown by?

Anyway, as always, I like to write these posts to look back on and see just how much Edith has changed and I think it will be nice for Edith to read when she’s older (if my blog is still going!).
