It can be an emotional journey remembering the moment #remietheofficemascot finally arrived with us. After my two home birth midwives gently coaxed a very reluctant me into an ambulance after they realised she wasn't coming at home they patiently followed me up the stairs at the hospital as I refused to take the lift (I wanted to help my contractions come back as they had stopped). They stayed with me and helped me get my brain around the decisions I had to make despite their exceptionally long shift. They handed over to another very lovely midwife who held my hand in theatre and kept me calm while Remie finally made her appearance with a few tugs of some forceps. I was so delirious by the end of the 56 hours she took to arrive that I couldn't remember names but I will always remember the reassurance and calm all my midwives brought to what is the most insane of experiences I have ever encountered. #thankyoumidwife and thank you @pampersworld for donating £1 for each post like this to support our much needed midwives who are so overstretched.
And then she was 3! #remietheofficemascot on a birthday shell hunt followed by the incredible shell grotto and a trip to @dreamlandmargate to finish the day on the Ferris wheel.
Thank you for celebrating with us Rosa @larkrisepictures ☄🎉☄🎉☄🎉☄🎉☄🎉☄🎉
We're up bright and early and excited to get ready for the @dottodotlondon Christmas market at the museum of childhood in Bethnal Green today.
Come and get your Christmas presents for the littlies from some of the best kids brands around.
This is #remietheofficemascot s first #selfie . Just found it in my phone while looking for a nice picture to post!
#remietheofficemascot has chickenpox. The plus side to being up half the night should be seeing the #supermoon out the window but it's lurking behind clouds. Instead I found this beauty by the always beautiful collage master @qta3 #regram
Finding time to work and spend proper time with #remietheofficemascot has been a two year learning curve. So much admiration for what @mother_pukka is doing with her #flexappeal campaign. If Forivor is ever big enough to employ other people giving all parents flexible working options will be a priority!
For now I feel very luck to have found a solution where one of my best friends and I spend the day split between looking after our two year olds while the other works and then we have lunch together get our own babes down for a nap and then we swap over for the afternoon.
Mornings are spent with two toddlers - a friend and I work swap (she works mornings while I look after her kids and we swap after lunch so I can work on Forivor). This morning we did painting and think I had just as much fun. They've painted the sea in case you were wondering.
We believe in nurturing a generation of imaginative thinkers who are passionate about protecting the planet.
Today is bleak but we have to keep the hope that our children will create a better world.
