I can do it on i-self

“I can do it mummy” “No I’m doing it” “No! I was doing dat!” “No! I can do it i-self” “I want to do it” Etc etc etc. The phrases go on and they’ve started to become the bane of my life. I’m actually sat writing this post tantrum, snuggling a now settled but recently…

Get on your bikes and ride.

Toddler P has been a treat this week, for all I joke and complain about her determination and wilfulness of being a two year old. She’s a darling, she really is and as if like magic, she gives me that sparkle when I need it most, like she knows what mummy needs. I actually think…

Changing the game plan.

Sometimes you've got to shake it up, toddler P is at that age where she's changing all the time, we get over one hurdle or phase and it opens up a whole new can of worms. What once was a tight nit, established routine can suddenly been chaos because she's hit a new milestone and…

Then little missy decided she needed a wee wee. So we navigated the tight cubicle with a pushchair and then she started.... Her strong wilful nature…

Santa is real.

I've just read the most heart warming story about how to talk about the truth of Santa with your child it was on this Facebook post and I love it. It sums up the true spirit of Christmas and giving for the sake of giving. It's about kindness because kindness should be something you do…

Ready for it.

My little girl is done, she's done with time off from the child minders, she's done with Christmas and she's done with the holidays. Toddler P and me have had a great break but this time of year, the post Christmas pre-back to work lull its tiresome. It's good having these few days to take…
