It’s time for me to face facts – I can’t call it ‘baby weight’ when Jack is nearly two! I’m very aware of the fact that my body is very different now, when Shane and I first met I was only 16 and still dancing to stay in shape. I was a petite size 6-8 … Continue reading My Mum Bod
Jack, the little darling, has taken to waking up any time from 4.45am-6.30am most days, for as long as I can remember he's always been a 7am kind of guy, which suited me just fine.
