Staying out of the sun has never been more fun! Our brandnew SunHats by Elodie Details are made with natural cotton fibres for a smooth fit. And by adjusting the folding of the brim and the length of the neck strap, you can create the style that suits your current mood. Or your kiddies’!
The sun is out and A is on his way from the airport. We can't wait to see him! Happy Saturday ☘️ #mytinytribe
That way to @sealifeweymouth new Caribbean Adventure Playground Mummy! This one is all excited and ready to go to the opening today. Only a couple of hours to go and we're really pleased the sun is shining too....
OMG guys!! It has come to that time already!! Leo is too big for his bassinet and I have to move him in to his cot Tonight is his first night and I have already told Chance I'll be camping out for the first weeks because #attachmentissues
Anyway, it will only be for his first sleep for now because we co-sleep whilst breastfeeding but if he miraculously starts sleeping through the night then he will be in his cot all night and I will miss him soo much!! my baby is growing so quickly.
I have put him down awake tonight to see if he falls asleep on his own (yeah right mum!). But I have the help of this cute hippo nightlight from @vtechtoys and he loves listening to the lullabies.
Sweet dreams little Leo. Please God let those teeth settle tonight!
Getting the kids off to sleep and then spending some quiet time in my favourite place (is the bathroom not every mum's quiet place? ) to go over my notes for tomorrow. I care so deeply about what I'm sharing tomorrow. After a week away on vacation I can't wait to be with my Home family. @homesyd

An introduction... I'm Sarah, married to Chris and Mum to three little ones - Oscar, Alfie and Flo. I think for the most part we look like your average family of 5. Having danced for a living, I've since found my passion in writing. Chris, works in the city as a banker (promise he's not a w#%*$r though ) and loves rugby and cycling. Oscar our eldest, is an avid fan of Justin Fletcher and a whiz on the scooter. Alfie, partial to the odd biscuit or 10 🙄 adores Dinosaurs and Flo can be found most days, pushing her "bebee" (baby) around in her buggy or dancing to the Peppa Pig theme tune.
Not altogether different to your family you might think?... except Oscar, my eldest at 4 years old, has Down Syndrome.
We hadn't known about the Down Syndrome before he was born and despite having the screening and it coming back as "low risk", (despise the word "risk"... "chance" is a lot better surely?) it appeared Oscar and his Down Syndrome, had slipped through the net.
If I'm completely honest (which I've always vowed to be on here) I was devastated. When the paediatrician told us she was sorry, she suspected our baby had Down Syndrome, I genuinely thought my world had ended.
I think before Oscar, I naively thought that "bad stuff" didn't happen to people like me. You see, that was my attitude then. The "bad stuff" I was referring to was the Down Syndrome, which in hindsight, 4 years on, is so far removed from what I think now.
I was a broken women in the beginning, spending hours a day worrying about Oscar's future, our future as a family and what it meant having him in it. I worried about how he'd cope, how we'd cope...I worried a lot at first.
But 4 years down the line, I've realised I don't worry nearly half as much. In fact I now realise having Oscar has been the making of our family... He's the little boy who inspires me everyday.
So I decided to start writing a blog back in January 2014 and what started as a bit of an outlet for me, somewhere to write down my thoughts and feelings, an online therapy of sorts, has since turned into an award winning blog which I'm told has helped "new" parents going through something similar.

I found something that rivals stepping on Lego...Ouch!
Oh, and Jack's birthday cake is made. He recognized it as Elmo, which just proves he has a brilliant imagination.
Goedemorgen! Mijn sfs zit erop; bedankt voor het meedoen en voor alle enthousiaste & lieve reacties!! Overweldigend hoor... Wat zijn jullie toch een stel leukerds! Gisteren hebben we Bens traktatie voor maandag alvast klaargemaakt: een heus dinobos met dino-surprise-eieren (en nee, het zijn geen paaseieren!! aldus Ben ). Maandag komen er nog worstenbroodjes in het bos. Fijn weekend mensen, geniet van de zon!!
🏼 Oh how I love you xox
Ich musste gestern noch eine #osterhosi nähen! Ist ja nicht unbedingt der Stoff, denn man auf Anhieb bei mir sucht aber ich konnte ihn gestern nicht liegen lassen
