Why only set goals at New Year?

December 31, 2018 | 10 Comments

I’m not sure why people tend to wait until the new year before they set themselves new goals –  for moral support? An obligation to set goals because others are? Don’t get me wrong, i’ve always been the same: ‘Next year, i’m going to………..’ ‘From January i’m going to…………’ This year, having had a few […]

December 28, 2018 | No Comments

Snacks – just how many can one toddler put away? I’m sure they eat every hour or so as a toddler – god knows where they put it all. I’m one of these mean mummies who hasn’t started giving anything that has sugar in yet (cakes / biscuits / ice cream), so  I try to […]

TEETHING hit us very early on when the little man’s first tooth came through at 3 months old! We had a few products that really helped us with the early teething journey, which can be found in one of my earlier blog posts.

Working mums don’t work as hard? HA!

June 20, 2018 | 2 Comments

Until I went back to work after having a child, i’ll admit, it did annoy me (just a little bit) that certain people got to leave on time every day, didn’t have to participate in the late rota, and therefore I (wrongly) perceived this as them having it ‘easy’. Fast forward to me now being […]

Would you use a dummy?

April 23, 2018 | 15 Comments
