The Party Is Over!


We had a birthday party for DS2 at home this afternoon and it’s over! I have that wonderful feeling of relief you get after being responsible for other people’s children, they all left alive and without serious injury.
I was worried we hadn’t invited enough children but the noise proved otherwise. We had four of DS2’s friends from school, DS1 had a friend, my sisters three children and my three boys. I planned a few traditional party games such as pass the parcel and musical statues but the favourite had to be the ‘wrapping up the mummy game’. We picked three volunteers and split every one into three teams. Each team had two minutes to wrap up the volunteer with toilet roll to make them look like a mummy. The team at the end who was most covered won. They had so much fun, you couldn’t see the living room floor through all the toilet roll but they ended recycling it all by throwing it at each other. They were crazy but DS2 had fun and that’s all that matters. I love watching how my boys are around their friends they can be so different and it’s lovely to see the friendships they have built.
I have a mountain of pizza left overs and cake that I’m scared I might eat if it looks at me any longer so I’m off to eat an apple (and then no doubt end up scoffing all the cake anyway).



I am a 28 year old mum living in Kent. I am totally outnumbered living with my husband and 3 boys but I love the fun and adventure they bring to my life. As a family we enjoy being active and to get out and about as much as possible. A little about us Me- My husband and I met 12 years ago when I was 16 and him 19. Being so young I don't think either of us expected a nervous first date at the cinema to lead to marriage and 3 children but we soon became inseparable. It can be hard staying 'girlie' in a house full of boys. DS1- DS1 is very sporty. He enjoys football, rugby and swimming but his real passion is motocross. I think hubby would have happily had him on a motocross bike the second he took his first step but he first started to ride when he got his first 50cc bike at 6 years old. Now, aged 8, he rides with complete confidence on his 65cc and is desperate to start competing. As his mother I will always worry about him no mater what he does but seeing how happy this sport makes him makes me want to support him 100%. DS2- DS2 is a real animal lover. He would love nothing more than to have a house full of cats and dogs but unfortunately for him the only pet we have is our goldfish named 'Goldie'. When we visit family who have dogs DS2 will happily sit there for hours talking, stroking and trying to teach them tricks. Computer games is DS2's favourite pass time. He was gifted a tablet for Christmas last year and now, at 6, he has my husband bugging him on tips to get new levels. To keep active DS2 really enjoys swimming. He is not afraid of the water at all and would swim every day given the chance. He has such a loving, caring personality. DS3- DS3 is, well, a real handful as most 2 year olds are. He is never short of energy and zooms everywhere at a million miles an hour on his favourite balance 'motorbike'. Much to my husbands joy DS3 is also obsessed, yes obsessed with motocross. All he wants to do is play motorbikes, wear DS1's helmet and boots at any given chance and watch the videos of DS1 riding. DS3 learns so much from his older brothers and he surprises me everyday with how daring and forward he is in so many ways.
