Staying in Bed: How do you get yours to do it?

Stuntboy has been a bit of a night owl over the last few weeks. And its amazing when you get out of the habit of waking in the night, how terrible it makes you feel when you have to do it all over again… He potty trained himself at three pretty much. He then refused […]

Mummy’s doing homemade Christmas decorations – really?

I don’t do craft – it’s not me. I always end up finding glitter in my hair, or stick my hands together. I would make a rubbish Christmas elf. Because its Christmas; I cannot escape. My daughter makes me do it you know. But I actually end up liking it. So perhaps, I am not […]

I just asked my ten year old what he thought I should write about today and he came up with two ideas and we decided on this one, a battle I face constantly, tidying up and the untidy kids bedroom. Now I do know I am not the tidiest person in the world, but I […]

You’re sitting in the soft play with some other mums and you hear a child start to cry, you look over and your child gives you ‘that look’, the one you know when they’ve done something wrong. But more that that, you know they’ve bitten another child and very soon that other child’s mum will […]

Move away from that screen! Tips for encouraging outdoor play

Saturday mornings have got slight more complicated in the last few weeks as the youngest has started playing football. And he loves it …they are all at that age where the ball goes one way and they all run after it, it gets kicked back the way it came and they all turn around and […]

Potty training tips: It is NOT a competition

I went around to a good friend’s for tea. Her little boy did very well with the old potty training; did it himself virtually.
