Noah’s overnight stop in hospital

Noah’s overnight stop in hospital

It struck me yesterday that Isla, Daddy and Noah have all visited A&E since lockdown started. Isla as she had a concussion. Daddy, as he has been getting chest pains, which turned out to be torn cartilage by his ribs and at the weekend, Noah. Noah presented with abdominal pains, to the right of his belly button and he was in a lot of pain. I wanted to document what happened at the stop in hospital, in case it helps with someone else in the future. VIEW the POST

It then ends up that you become only mum and dad for a while, forgetting that before your cherubs came along, you were husband and wife. You had fun and romance and a lot of love for eachother, and while that love hasn't changed, you certainly do things differently now. You need to think about how you can keep the relationship alive while you navigate feeds, nappies and endless sleepless nights. VIEW the POST

Looking after your dogs during lockdown #PawsitiveVibes

We have loved being at home with the cat and dogs during lockdown. It's nice as our Rambo (the Jack Russell) has developed a really close bond with Noah. He follows him everywhere and cleans him, like he's looking after him. It's so cute. We have been having fun with the dogs, using the training treats to get them to sit and give paw.
