Mummy Dreams


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

The more I look at Baby Glitter, the more I can see that soon she won't be her name. She will soon grow out of babyhood and be firmly placed in a new chapter of her life, toddlerhood. She is developing a sense of self, recognising behaviour and growing into a beautiful little girl.

Whilst there'll be a heartfelt pang when she is no longer a 'baby', I'm feeling so excited for the future and what this brings for my relationship with her, and thought I would share some of my hopeful highlights.



Mummy - Daughter Dreams


Sharing a slice of cake together at the lovely garden centre near our house and chatting.

Her being really pleased with how I did her hair that day.

Allowing her to paint my nails in a rainbow of colours.

Getting dressed up together for family parties.

Blowing up balloons for her birthday.

Seeing her face on Christmas mornings.

Taking her to meet Santa.

Explaining about the magic of the Tooth Fairy.

Reading books under thick blankets as the rain pounds on the window.

Lighting candles and torches in power cuts and telling stories.

Building dens with pegs and sheets.

Making crafty art for when Daddy comes home.

Decorating cakes with sweets and icing.

Delivering holiday treats to neighbours.

Singing our favourite songs in the car.

Writing letters in pink felt tips.

Drinking hot chocolate from matching mugs. 


What do you look forward to doing with your children?

Toodlepip!

  8. I look forward to dressing up, french plaiting her hair, pampering ourselves with face masks and mugs of hot chocolate and telling secrets...

    My bf's daughter is 6 and she is almost like mine - well on weekends. We paint our nails together, play games, talk about everything - both important and just plain silly, bake cakes, make masses of decorations for christmas/halloween... I just love spending time with her.

    This is such a lovely post xx

  9. Aww, this post made me tear up a little bit! hehe So sweet, Louise! Baby glitter is beautiful and even though I'm not a 'mummy' I know this 'next chapter' is going to be special too. I wish you both in this new chapter in your life will be full of joy and surprises. xx

  13. My mum passed away last night so this has really made me well up. I am 18 and too young too loose her and will never have the chance to experience so many things with her, she won't be there when I get married or have a baby.
    You are an amazing mum and Darcie is extremely lucky to be able to share this relationship with you.
    love Ellie

  15. Darcy will always be your baby, no matter how old she is. She's a beautiful little girl. And your hopes for the future are lovely. I wish I was able to have done that sort of thing with my mum :) you're an amazing mother xx

  16. What a gorgeous little girl! As a nanny I have really enjoyed doing some of those things you mentioned as she has grown up! My favourite thing it getting 'baby-cino's' and banana bread at a local cafe, especially on a rainy day!

  19. This actually made me a little teary. I just turned 37 and my "baby girls" are almost 18 and 19 now. I miss all of the things on your list. Enjoy them while you can. The things I now look forward to with my daughters are shopping together, them helping me keep my style youthful (hehe), going out for lunch, watching them fall in love, seeing them blossom as they take on the world. Hope the joys of parenthood never end! X

  20. Louise, because your religion and 'church going' is apart of your life, could you maybe do a post on how you plan on or how you are all ready incorporating it into Darcy's life? xx

  35. This has really pulled on y heart strings!
    I am excited about taking my little boy to his diet football game (or any other sport/activity he wishes to take part in)
    Teaching him to swim and ride a bike :)
    Baking out first cake together!
    Hearing him say "mummy, I love you"

    He's 13month old so a little younger than baby glitter :)
    Having a child is the most amazing, most special, rewarding part of life, everyone that gets to have a beautiful baby is blessed in so many ways <3 xxxx

  47. Louise you are such a wonderful mother. Posts like this always make me want to be a mummy and I'm only 18. Hhaahah! It's great how you inspire all of your readers to try harder and be better. I'm sure Darcy will grow up in a strong and beautiful woman. And of course she'll have a big box of amazing memories with her family. :)x

  48. My little boy is 4 now, and is now old enough to appreciate and ask for a 'movie night' together. With lots of popcorn, hot chocolate, and searching for a film to watch together. This weekend we did Hocus Pocus - he still finds it a little hard to concentrate on a whole unanimated film but he's getting there :-) I also love bringing him out for lunche if we happen to go shopping at the weekends, and he loves baby cappucinos and cupcakes and ham sandwiches. He's also recently started to make his own bed as a surprise for me in the mornings while I get ready for work, and comes and tells his daddy and I how much he loves us every day because he is so used to hearing it from us. It just gets better and better Louise, so just enjoy every moment and don't mourn the passing of each milestone, as there are many more wonderful ones to come afterward xxx

  49. Awwww this is such a cute little post Louise :)
    I've been reading every post & watching every video of her since she was born, shes certainly going to be a wee head turner :) hehe
    i'm actually glad you have put the other videos of her back on youtube as i think its a really good way for her to see what she was like when she was born & making her remember memories :)

  55. My daughter is turning three in November, it really is amazing how fast the time flies. We are now at the stage of doing some of the things that are on your list and I promise you, that they will be the most amazing moments of your life. My daughter loves to have her hair played with and put into different styles and the look on her face when she likes it, is just precious. I couldn't imagine my life without her and it is nice to see another Mother that enjoys the little things <3 x

  56. This post is so cute, it makes me think of how I would love to make my own little family when i'm older. You always seem to point out littler things in life and that you don't need lots of expensive days out, to enjoy spending time with your children and that's what I love about you! P.S - Another "Mummy Dream" could be putting a mince pie and a glass of milk out for Santa <3 xx

  57. Awww Louise, I don't even have a child and this post totally pulled at my heartstrings. So sweet! I hope to create something like this for my future children.

I was just thinking what would this post look like if you had a little Baby Boy instead of Baby Glitter.. you are so blessed that you can share this with Darcy.. have you ever thought of having another baby (I know that you don't want to:)) so that you can do this once again with another new person that you created..?:)

  65. Wow! It's definitely true when they say how quickly babies/toddlers grow and develop! I've missed seeing Darcy on your blog and in your youtube vids and what a difference! You can definitely tell she's blossoming into a toddler! It's not been long since you stopped having her in your videos and she looks so different! She's so beautiful Louise you are one very lucky mummy! Loved reading your dreams for yourself and her they are adorable x

  82. This is so sweet! Darcy is going to grow up being a wonderful little lady with a mum as loving as you are. :) I'm definitely a few years off from even thinking about kids, but I think I really want a little girl to play dress ups with, help her learn French and a musical instrument, introduce her to music and just generally be one of her best friends. :)

  89. A great idea to help make christmas morning even more exciting is to get some boots, as in male boots, then in the room with the christmas tree put the boots on the floor and put talcum powder around them so that it looks like snow and make it look as if santa has walked through the room to the christmas tree, Then just add a few twigs with leaves on from the garden so it looks like he had a bit of a struggle and bravo! This honestly made me so excited when i was little!

    ReplyDelete
  90. She is absolutely beautiful! You're so lucky to have such a gorgeous little girl :):)
    So happy for you and your little family, you always seem so happy in your videos and instagrams etc!
    I've been watching your videos for a couple of years now and loooooooove them!! This may sound really silly but watching you and other youtubers videos has such a big impact on my life! I have an anxiety disorder and a couple of other issues in my life at the moment and sometimes it can get very, very hard. I've found over the last few years that the main distraction and escape from this is watching yours and others videos and reading your blogs. Theres just something about being able to pop onto youtube and just see familiar faces,(if you get what i mean?) its werid but its like a little separate world you can escape to where everyone’s happy and talks about makeup :):) I must be coming across like a complete weirdo, but i'm not I promise , I basically just wanted to say thank you so much for doing what you do, it really helps me and makes me happy! thank you again! Cant wait for more posts and vids :)
