I’m really enjoying Elijah being two. I’m enjoying spending time together a lot more as he tells me everything he wants and talks to me now. He asks me to play with him and expresses himself so much more. He is still having tantrums galore but they’re shorter and he understands a bit better when I explain no means no. Although I’m not looking forward to more tantrums I’m still looking forward to watching Elijah continue to blossom into the happy, smart boy he already is! It’s so much more exciting when your kids can talk to you and when they say I love you there’s nothing better.
Nothing can beat a autumn morning walk 🍁🍂
Happy 2nd birradiated to the happiest boy ❤️
Today’s blog post is all about what I do to calm down. Have you been keeping up with my daily blog posts? To read the latest copy the short link or check my bio!
Today’s read for our animal obsessed boy, it’s been raining so much today so we’ve stayed in and read and napped. We’ve both got this horrid cold that’s been going round and sticking to your chest so I’ve been utilising his nap time and napping too. People never tell you how hard being a parent is when both you and your child are ill it is so draining! Currently whacking the heating on and watching hey duggee under blankets!
We’ve spent our evening making Christmas cards. I know it’s early but considering i take like a month to remember to deliver any sort of card it’s probably right on time😂

Hello and welcome to our page. This is a blog which will primarily be run by me Charlie-Jane. This blog will be one which isn’t stuck to one specific genre. I will blog about anything and everything from family life, mental health, to reviews on skincare. I will always be a honest blogger and give honest opinions and try to not sugar coat life as there is no such thing as the perfect parent/child/human. So if you’re looking for a bit of everything this is the blog for you!

A bit about the Hazelwoods.

My name is Charlie-Jane and I am currently 24 years young. I’ve worked in many different jobs from a teaching assistant of small reception age children to working with asylum seekers/youth offenders and learning difficulty to working on a busy ward. I’ve recently became a stay at home mum to look after our son after deciding that what was best for my mental health and our family. My husband is 25 six months older than me. He is a small business owner and now the main earner for us. We met when we where teenagers through friends but didn’t start seeing each other romantically till we where 19. We started dating and fell in love almost immediately and the rest is history. We recently got married and we brought our own house a few years ago which we LOVE decorating. We had our son Elijah almost 2 years ago and you can say he is quite the character! He’s very energetic and it’s non stop chasing after him and trying to teach him everything he needs to know to learn to be a person! We live together in a terraced house just on the outskirts of a small town in the countryside. We live locally to lots of forests and rivers and beaches so we always have lovely countryside drives and places to visit.

So welcome to our blog! And if you want to contact me at any point look at the contact section of my blog! Subscribe or follow for more posts and updates!

        Through the woods and parks is the nearest for me, but the beach, I would have to take a trip, or a holiday. 😊

        My favourite time to go is morning when it’s not busy, it’s quite nice but can get quite busy it’s only a 20 minuite drive from our house so we’re quite lucky!
