just watching her 'staycation' vlog aka staying in a motel after her nans funeral. i notice how she LOVES to complain about cyprus (like having to get up at 5am), and her and lee sniggering all the time, feel sorry for the poor baby with a narcissistic mother like that

I've been thinking she's a little obsessed with making Cyprus out to be some difficult baby but I put it down to her being a new mum and her just being Grace.

She's the kind of person who'll do something not that strange like eat a dessert food before dinner then run to twitter like "omgerd I'm so RaNdOm!!!"

But it's a little sad how she'll say Cyprus is being moody, giving her attitude, or "fighting" with her. Of course, being a mum is hard. Babies are hard.

She doesn't seem to be doing it in a way that's meant to be intentionally negative but more like "see, I'm a mum now I understand mum things, I can complain about things only parents would understand" but it comes off as her baby being a "not easy" baby. Which most babies aren't, but still.

I’ve unfollowed. I was scrolling Instagram and I’ve just realised life’s too short to watch what a crappy person does. And continue to watch her disrespect and disregard her partner, those who saved her life, those who allow her to do nothing for a living while calling herself a “content creator”. And I’ve definitely had enough of grand fucking rising and 50 shades of beige to the tune of “I deserve”.

If I’m honest, I unfollowed her years ago, and only refollowed her once she got Covid. Which makes me feel like a shitty person but oh well

After watching the latest vlog I feel Grace hasn't really got a connection with Cyprus. Its almost like she could be his aunt, sister ect.. Im not saying she doesn't love him but she hasn't got that motherly bond. Understandable as the first moments of a babies life when born is when the bond between mum and baby is made. My friend gave birth to her baby but suffered from depression as soon as the baby was born he went to live with her grandmother, she got him back when she felt better but the mother bond was broken by then hes 5 now and she still stays she feels like she doesn't have a connection with him like all the other mums do. I do sympathise with grace on the level but on the other hand she is really selfish and if it isnt about her she gets really nasty, she needs to grow up

Sadly I have to say I feel the same. I really hope she doesn’t read here, because you know, that’s another level than discussing someone‘s shitty outfit, say. Didn’t even watch the vlog since I find vlogs in general really boring, but from the images and videos on insta I got the impression her cuddling and every contact with him seems really forced and somehow uncomfortable. But then, Grace never was a somehow natural person. Everything seems forced with her.

Babies need you to be responsive to their needs whether it’s feeding on demand or sleep patterns, I know a lot of people try to impose routines and sleep training (and there’s whole schools of thoughts around those that I won’t get into lol) to varying degrees of success. Don’t get me wrong there are times where I wish I could make a cup of tea before I have to play with my LO first thing in the morning but it’s just mum life 🤷🏻‍♀️ Sadly you’ve got to roll with the baby punches otherwise you’ll drive yourself mad, I say this I have to practice serenity about it regularly!

100%. That's what I mean. I'm not a mum but I've babysat loads of infants including overnight and I can't imagine running to tweet about every little thing. It's just part and parcel of looking after a kid. You follow their lead.

Then again before she gave birth Grace did say she'd train her baby to sleep through the night or self soothe when crying. Back then we commented on the other site that reality would hit.

Add what she's been through she might be surprised at how hard it is to "manage" Cyprus. Like others said, she may not have a bond due to what happened and on top of that she believed if she just did her intuitive soul connecting malarkey she'd raise a baby that would just slot into her expectations.

Oh sorry my love I agree with you! I wasn’t disagreeing!

Yeah her parenting style isn’t something I’d do myself and tbh it feels a world away from this earth woman grand rising schtick she has for her personal brand? You’d have thought she’d be all over responsive/attachment parenting rather than proud to be doing CIO / sleep training.
 
I think it’s a shame that she’d rather splash out on a designer bag then pay the ‘fees’ at nursery, it’s such good socialisation and as an only child something he’d really benefit from. Priorities all wrong in my opinion.
Agree, but the on boarding fees (registrations, deposits, buying extra bits for nursery, etc) alone likely exceeded the cost of that Bicester village bag & then you’ve got the ongoing financial commitment of £xxxx pcm. The thing is there’s a LOT of discussion going on about how unaffordable fees are & how it penalises mums (led by @pregnantthenscrewed). If she wasn’t too preoccupied living a delusion she could be a really powerful voice in that discussion representing self employed mums/mums with long term health conditions?

I don’t think it’s about money. I wouldn’t be surprised if she doesn’t send him to school! All those toxic teachers pushing a toxic curriculum blah blah blah.

That’s true actually and a good point which I agree with, she could be using her voice and platform to spread awareness.

It wouldnt surprise me if that was the case. She missed out on the first 3 months of his life, i’d be shocked if she wasnt slightly detached. Hopefully if she does feel these things she’ll seek help

I done the same unfollowed her then refollowed when she was ill and then unfollwed when all her self indulgence starting popping up. I felt her quite real in the weeks after she came back but that slowly turned into her being back on her bullshit and if not, even worse. Also her kid isnt even that cute and her style is laaaaaaame so i lees' so try hard. Im a humble neutral grand risings earthly risen from god crap. Pls. You had nurses consultants working tirelessly and intensely to keep u alive. My mum was in icu not long before covid came out i saw how intense the care is in there..... The lack of gratitude she has given the staff and medical team is obsurd. She has given herself all the credit. Which is bullshit. She is not a higher being. Her and lee act like they are the first people to have a baby. The familyhood. Bore off.

wow she never fails to get a humblebrag/pick me comment in does she - "Due to how hard I worked in 2020".. Grace, I can guarantee its nowhere near the level of hard work those that saved your life have put in the past year or so, and in a lot of cases for a lot less money and challenging conditions..
Just commenting to say... this is NOT the definition of a 'pick me' 🤐 if you're going to use terms, use correctly.

Pick me is a woman who agrees with men/ tries to people-please men for male approval. That's all.
This is what happens when street slang gets popularised and people miss use it.

Despite finding the vlogs abit meh so far I still tuned in to this weeks haha. It was interesting to see Grace and Lee still having the same awkward discussions around getting engaged that they've been having for years at this point. It really does blow my mind cus I just dont get it, surely pressuring him and cajoling him into it defeats the entire purpose? Either propose to him yourself or accept the situation for what it is. Not to get pseudo psychological but I wonder if he's holding out because its the one area in their relationship where he is totally in control. I feel like I've seen this dynamic with a lot of IG/Youtuber bf's where they almost just form a backdrop in their significant others lives (unless they have really high flying successful careers of their own). And Grace has that type A personality where she feels she has to control/run everything and feels that everything Lee does has to hold up to her own imposed standards (like how she has a tendency to lowkey undermine his parenting choices). So this proposal and the when/if/how is the one thing between them that he gets to hold over her. Not even in a malicious way but like a sub-conscious thing.

I didn’t put my child in nursery because my husband work from home and we have family who like to have them a few times a week…

I like to spend time with my child at every chance I have (although I do like having days just to focus and work). We used money saved on nursery on outings and activities at home (during lockdown). As soon as funding was through though I decided to do it a couple of times a week for socialisation as Covid really messed that up for my little one. I didn’t however spend the money on myself…does she do baby groups with him?

Interesting....... You sound so insightful! I think this is very true.
