We already do nursery three times a week and starting school next year seems to be getting closer and closer, so it’s safe to say packing lunches and thinking of things to put in my daughters lunchbox (that won’t be repeatedly rejected) is on my mind a hell of a lot. She is FUSSY and… Read More Lunchbox Drama – A fussy threenager.
I love food and I love to eat out. Delicious food with no clean up? It’s a winner. Going out for a nice dinner is one of my favourite things to do and I spend far too much time at coffee shops than is normal. When I was pregnant I was determined that I would… Read More Top Tips for Eating Out with Kids
This is the second instalment of #LittleLoves. We’ve had a pretty relaxed week to be honest, I have a uni assignment due soon which I haven’t spent nearly enough time on and Joe’s hours have been all topsy turvy with him doing days instead of nights which has thrown my evening routine out somewhat. I… Read More A Weekly Round Up #LittleLoves – A Lazy one.
We decided (I decided, my husband disagreed with me setting up yet another direct debit) to get National Trust Family Passes last month. My friend has recently got them with her family and I thought it might motivate me to get out and about a bit more if we had passes and ideas for places… Read More Getting National Trust Family Passes
We need to talk about sleep, yours and your toddlers. I’m knackered, absolutely knackered because… drumroll here please people… my 2.5 year old toddler doesn’t sleep through the night and I can’t seem to fix it. She used to, she was a very good baby and used to go to bed with no problem and… Read More My 2.5 year old doesn’t sleep through the night.
Up until recently I was a helicopter mum. Well, I suppose I still am to a certain extent but recently I feel like I have really made some progress in loosening those apron strings a little. We went to a local softplay the other day and for the first time ever, I let her go. I didn’t put… Read More Helicopter Mum.
We have a notoriously picky eater. Every single day we seem to have mealtime battles. She goes through phases of only eating beige food and it is exasperating. I have done what I consider to be a ton of research online about her eating and I have been handling the problem the way I see as… Read More Mum Vs. Dad – Mealtime Battles.
Isabelle is 2 and a half now, it’s probably about time, right? I made a half hearted attempt a few months ago, which resulted in a defiant toddler refusing to sit on the potty and me cleaning up wee every few minutes and gave up. Then my friend who has a daughter the same age… Read More Potty Training. Will we ever leave the house again?
I’m grumpy. Gilmore girls is on, it is 9.24pm on a Tuesday night and Isabelle has only just gone to sleep. The evenings are supposed to be mine dammit. Ugh. So I interviewed for a job on Friday. It was a full time job, which I wasn’t really sure about. The job itself looked great,… Read More Disappointment & Relief.
I haven’t been very active on my blog recently, which is a bit silly considering how much in its infancy it is. The thing is, things have been a bit crazy and I just had to put blogging on the backburner. But whilst we are still in the choppy waters, calm seas are hopefully ahead. We… Read More Standing still on a roundabout.
