Unusual Familiarity & A Teething Baby

An unusual sense of familiarity – a river a drool – and a toddler asks “Why?”. Find out more in todays latest post here!

I woke up this morning feeling slightly out-of-sorts. As if we had gone back in time….

It felt like when Liam and I first starting dating and I stayed over at his Dads with him. The room looks very similar to his old bedroom – it’s strange. We’re still trying to get used to the layout of this place.

Liam and I spoke about the things we needed to do before the children returned back from their Dads, and so far we haven’t got much done other then putting locks on cupboard doors in Auroras room to stop her escaping and hiding in the roof.

We were meant to pop out to get everyone registered at the doctors, but because we needed proof of address, and we haven’t had our copy of the tenancy agreement yet, we haven’t been able to do that.


So far today I’ve had a very grumpy Kiiara on my hands. She’s teething at the moment so she’s not her usual self. The pools of dribble coming from her little mouth is ridiculous!

I honestly don’t remember Aurora suffering as much as Kiiara has with her teething. She seemed to just take it in her stride. It’s amazing how different children can be dealing with their own normal development.

I’ve stocked up on teething gel which usually seems to ease it for a little while and I’ve have ‘Calpol’ handy just in case.

With everything else having to be sorted out, dealing with a very upset clingy baby is making things a little bit harder to do. I’m hoping her first tooth will break through soon and hopefully the others will follow without any trouble.

I’ve been looking up about ‘teething bracelets‘ and ‘teething necklaces‘ but they look rather dangerous to me. I’m assuming they are probably safe, but as i’m a bit of a worrier, I’ll just stick with teething gel and extra cuddles.

I feel completely exhausted today as Kiiara wouldn’t settle last night. She was swapping from one boob to the other all night, which meant frequent tossing and turning for me, but that’s the joys of co-sleeping.

To top off our day Aurora has officially turned into a little sh**. As amusing as it is occasionally, she is now asking “why?” to everything.

She also utters for me to go away. The joys of having kiddies! No matter how hard it gets though, they are a massive blessing to me.

I’m hoping things will be a little easier tomorrow and we manage to settle in better than what we’ve done so so far. It feels like we’re on a holiday, and it doesn’t seem to have sunk in that we’re actually back just yet.

I’m looking forward to seeing my older babies – it’s been two weeks since I’ve seen them. I know it’s going to be super busy going from two kids back to four but hopefully they might assist me in getting things organised again (wishful thinking).

We have a busy few days ahead, but I’m looking forward to the Weekend again to be able to go out and enjoy the sun, and the beautiful sights of Llandudno. I just need to remember to take the ‘teething gel’ and ‘Calpol’ – things could go south if I forget them!
