This is Hollie after I told her it was time for bed, nasty mummy!




5 things I said I’d never do as a new parent

When I found out I was pregnant with Hollie I swore there were a few things I wouldn’t do, however I realised soon after she was born that this sometimes isn’t possible. So here are 5 things I said I wouldn’t do but failed miserably at haha.

1. I said I would never co-sleep with Hollie, however after the 2nd week of nearly no sleep I feel asleep with hollie in bed with us and it was the best nights sleep in the whole 2 weeks of her being here and so I continued to co-sleep (safely of course) for the next 3 months.

2. I said I wouldn’t use baby jars and would make all my own baby food, but in reality it is sometimes so much easier to use them and hollie loved them as well.

3. I said I would only use positive ways to discapline my child (that’s not kind, please don’t do that) however one the tantrums started this soon went out of the window and the N word ‘naughty’ soon surfaced.

4. I always said I would only allow hollie to watch 30 minutes of T.V a day, but sometimes when  I really need to get something done watching T.V is the only thing that keeps her occupied.

5. And finally I didn’t want Hollie to eat fast food but in all honesty how can I stop her from the delights of a happy meal every so often!

I hope you enjoyed reading.


The List

A bit about me

Hi everyone, I have been wanting to start a blog for a while but haven’t had the courage to do it. However after reading one of my friends blogs for a while(keep strong and moving forward) I have decided to give it a go!

So this first blog post should help you get to know me a little bit better. I’m Laura a 25 year old mummy to my  beautiful little girl who turned 2 on xmas day and yes it is a VERY expensive time of the year haha. I have been with my husband for 9 years and married for 4 months, we met at school and have been together ever since. He is an amazing daddy and husband but like all couples we have our moments.



I decided to name my blog don’t worry be happy as it’s a saying my nan always used to say whenever I was feeling down, and it always makes me smile when I hear it.

I hope that through this blog I can document moments in my life I want to remember, and hopefully you will enjoy reading it as well.

Bye for now 🙂
