What Little H did – 2.6 years

LondonZoo

Hola Little H, This month has seen you back to your normal self. You are slightly more clingy to me than you used to be, but after your upset at nursery you went back to happily going in just as quickly. It was a real relief and Daddy and I don’t like it when you’re unsettled. You’re speech has cranked up another notch and you’re interest in things like schedules, routine and days of the week is growing day-on-day. It’s

The end of napping, toddler struggles and remembering this is my blog

RecooperationPlay

It’s been ages since I wrote a blog post. My mind has just been elsewhere and I have found parts of the last couple of weeks quite tough. One of the last times I wrote Little H had been unwell. She got over her fever and seemed to be recovered. But we sent her back to nursery and she struggled. She cried when I left for work, she cried when Sam dropped her at nursery. By day 2 she had

What Little H did – 2.5 years

Little H, Every month I am astounded by how you develop and grow. This month is no exception! I really cannot believe you aren’t even two and a half yet! You’ve done so much this month including a lot of growing and developing. The end of the month has been a little tough though as you got a horrible virus which has thrown you off a bit. After several nights with a high fever, you were then really unsettled in

Welcome to my monthly feature in which I share some of my favourite online articles for the month. I read a lot of blog posts and articles online and whilst I share a lot of them through tweets, it’s easy to miss them and hard to come back to them at another time. This is a list of my top ten reads for the month, a mixture of formal news articles and blog posts. May was a bit of an

The uncensored truth from our potty training experience

There are some activities which no parent can escape; rites of passage if you will. Potty training is one of them. You can delay it and defer it but at some point helping support your little person to ditch that nappy and not just wee (or worse!) on the floor is going to be the focus of your life. I knew as Little H approached two that that time was coming closer. But we had a lot going on at

Why I took my laptop on holiday

Yes, you read correctly – this a post about why I took my laptop away with me on holiday (in this case a long weekend break to Woburn Center Parcs) rather than leave it at home. It feels a little counter-intuitive I’m sure since holidays are supposed to be a time for taking a break. But if you give me a second to explain then you’ll see that is exactly the reason why I chuck (/ carefully slip in a

What Little H did – 2.4 years

Little H, we’ve had an awesome month doing on lots of fun activities. You have astounded me yet again by developing every day. I swear you spend more time telling me what to do than the other way round! You’ve also been testing me again so mummy has had to develop her ‘Patience’ super strength even further. But I have loved every minute of it. Well, almost 😉

Reasons I am grateful #5

I have kept a Gratitude Journal since the start of 2016. Over that year it made a MASSIVE difference to my mental attitude; I now more naturally see the positive in things. My blog is a place to share thoughts and opinions. But more than that, it’s a place I record life so I can look back in the future and remember how things were. Whilst I will always have my private journals, I also decided to take a leaf

So, welcome to my monthly feature in which I share some of my favourite online articles for the month. I read a lot of blog posts and articles online and whilst I share a lot of them through tweets, it’s easy to miss them and hard to come back

I must remember, she’s only 2…

HorseRiding

Nothing I’m about to say is new. It’s been said by others in one form or another countless times. Anyone who has been or currently is in possession of a toddler will likely relate to this completely. But I need to get it out so I’m going to say this all again: my toddler is driving me to distraction. Everything is a drama. No option she’s presented with is right: she’s tired but doesn’t want to sleep; she’s hungry but
