Introducing…Katie and Dylan!

Ever since I started my blog back in January 2016 I’ve tried to be as honest and open about my family life in my posts as I possibly can but one thing I have never disclosed is my children’s names. From my very 1st post I’ve always referred to them as K and D and I honestly don’t know why. I felt like I almost needed to protect them from the internet which is ridiculous really given that their pictures are up there for everyone to see and a lot of people who read my blog and follow me on social media know their names anyway! I’ve always found it difficult when writing about them to just say “K” or “D” and I’ve slipped up on a few occasions over on Instagram/Twitter. Plus if you were to look on my husbands Twitter you’d blatantly see their names on his bio anyway (he’s Stateside84 if anyone cares to give him a follow! 😉 )

So I thought I’d do a little blog post and introduce them, my beautiful little children that you read so much about.

KATIE GRACE

Katie is 3 years old (going on 13!) she’s outgoing, bubbly and very intelligent. She likes to talk ALOT and can be quite bossy at times. We chose the name Katie Grace purely because we liked it and not for any other reason. We didn’t know when we were pregnant with her what sex she was so if she was a girl, she was Katie and if she was a boy, she was Jake. It’s as simple as that. She is our beautiful first born, the daughter I always wanted and the little girl we adore.

DYLAN ALEXANDER

Dylan is 15 months old and our miracle baby read here. He has a smile that could melt the hardest of hearts and a temper like a raging bull! (I’m hoping it’s a faze haha!) He is just full of gorgeousness. We found out we were having a boy at our 20 week scan but it took us 5 days after he was born to give him a name. He was labelled “baby boy” for the first 120hrs of his life. We wanted to make sure his name fitted his personality and I think it does just that. He is beautiful with his thick blonde hair and large eyes. Our little fighter, our baby and our son.

Top 5 most annoying kids TV programmes (As voted by me)

Childrens TV – I have a serious love/hate relationship with it. I love it because it gives me 5 minutes (OK, half an hour) break to either sit and have a cup of tea or get some much needed house chores done and for that, I am forever grateful for but I also hate it because there are some programmes which K loves that literally drive me up the wall. I’ll be honest, I’ve labelled this my top 5 most annoying programmes but I could easily label it my top 20 most annoying programmes but lets not be too harsh! In no particular order…

Peppa Pig

Peppa-Pig

 

Jesus that pig is bossy! And mardy! (northern term) and lets not forget a little bit cheeky. The bing bong song gets stuck in your child’s head and they end up singing it for the rest of eternity!  Also, Daddy Pig is a useless baffoon. Hats off to Miss Rabbit though, that woman is a grafter!

Something special

mr tumble

Two words: Justin Fletcher. Is it just me that thinks he’s creepy!? Especially when Mr Tumble appears. *shudders*

In the night garden

In-the-Night-Garden

Why does no one speak properly in it? What is Macca Pacca? and why he is so obsessed with cleaning? Also, why do the tomblyboos kiss each other and pull their trousers down?? Strange, strange programme.

Topsy and Tim

topsy-and-tim

Not a programme I completely despise except for one minor thing – Topsy and Tims mum and all of her perfectly twintastic smugness. Patience of a saint and not at all realistic.

Balamory

balamory

What’s the story in Balamory? No one cares. The singing and dancing is cringe worthy. Thankfully there are no new episodes anymore but the downside is that they just repeat the old ones meaning that we have to endure the weird lad in a kilt awkwardly dance in front of his pink castle.

Are there any childrens TV programmes that really annoy you? Can you relate to this? I’d love to hear from you!!

XOXOXO
