Reasons to be cheerful...

I like this bandwagon and I am going to jump on it... here are my reasons to be cheerful:

IT'S SATURDAY! Which means I get lovely hubby home for today and for tomorrow so that I only have to do half the number of nappy changes. Oh yes, life is sweet.

Little Tinkle finally has a TOOTH. Well, almost. There is a bit of something there sticking up through her gum. It has been a torturous process and I cannot even imagine what it will be like when those big muthas at the back start coming through, but as a mother of a 10 month old who has only just got one, I am allowed to be a little bit cheerful about it.

I'm in PARTY PLANNING mode - CK will be experiencing her first birthday in a couple of months and I have already started getting excited and planning the party. Yippeeee. Fancy dress for adults and kiddies, cake for little un's and lots of wine for big un's. Nice.

So despite a major lack of sleep, a sore back, a whiny baby and a boring domestic day of putting up stair gates and tidying dangerous substances out of baby-reachable-drawers... I am still cheerful.

Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy with a Heart


  1. Good reasons to be cheerful! There is always something to be grateful for :)

  2. I presume that being cheerful about the tooth is an indication that you're not breastfeeding her...

  3. Good reasons, especially the party planning I love doing that :)

  4. Thanks guys and yes Fran I finally finished feeding at New Year - 10 months was enough for both of us it turns out. CK only wants a bottle now. I'm happy with the fact that it coincided with the getting of teeth!

  5. Hi, Thanks for joining in and have wonderful fun planning the party.

    Hope you will join in again next week.
