• Everything I’ve completely forgotten about baby weaning

    May 29, 2015

    If feeding your child is an act of love then weaning is a messy, messy affair. Quite literally. My new default position is down on the floor, sweeping up bits of discarded food. “Mummy, why are you under the table?” Eliza asks curiously, as Florence grins. I was pretty apprehensive about weaning first-time-round as it seemed…

  • Long weekends and Den Days

    May 27, 2015

    How was your long weekend? Ours ticked lots of Bank Holiday boxes including the park, a picnic, seeing friends and a touch of DIY (luckily, no traffic jams or trips to B&Q). There was also some highly technical and very professional den making. Didn’t you love making dens as a child? Ours was in aid of…

  • Hey Huggies – we’re baby wipes ambassadors

    May 18, 2015

    Baby wipes are pretty much the fabric of parenting life, aren’t they? I’m never more than three feet from at least half a pack. Leaving the house without any would make me very, very nervous. Running out is more than enough to turn a good day bad. With a weaning baby and a toddler who…

  • Baby brain, trains and t-shirts

    May 17, 2015

    Good weekend? Here’s a round-up of life, lately… I was pretty thrilled to be at number 4 in the Tots 100 top ten baby blogs for 2015 (out of 10,000 blogs!) It made me really happy, especially as I’m currently up against my usual blogging battles of baby brain, no sleep and no time…a massive thank you for…
