Little Tikes Mini Mechanic Play Set Review

As regular readers will know, I am a massive fan of traditional, wooden toys. Our house is full of wooden toys, a wooden play kitchen, wooden sand and water tables and children’s wooden furniture. I think I have a bit of a wooden obsession to be honest! If there is a wooden version of a toy I will always opt to buy that one over it’s plastic alternative. However, Little…

Naps… Or Lack Of

LP never used to sleep. It took hours of rocking and shushing and pacing and crying and pleading and hoping and hugging and more to get her to sleep until she started sleeping through at about 15 months old. LP then slept religiously from 7:30pm until 8:30am every night, hardly ever needing to be settled again. She would also have a two hour nap every day after her lunch. This…

Little Man’s Teething Hell

Little Man had been out of sorts for a little while – grouchy, snotty, waking up even more often that usual through the night. He had turned into ‘someone else’s baby’ – the one that winges solidly and never settles, cries constantly and won’t let you put them down. Our Little Man wasn’t a baby we recognised. Little Man’s grizzling and unsettled ways continued past his 5-month-day and we were…

Weight Watchers – Falling off the wagon and getting back on it!

I missed two Weight Watchers weigh ins – the first because everyone was poorly and the second because a friend came over and it meant that today it has been 3 weeks since my last weigh in. I now freely admit that over those three weeks I fell off the Weight Watchers wagon. I ate a lot of things that I probably shouldn’t have – I had a lovely package…

Babymoov Booster Seat with Tray Review

We were recently sent a Babymoov Booster Seat with Tray to test out and review with LP. LP has always sat with us at the table for meals – from weaning all the way through to now. Why would we need a Babymoov Booster Seat with Tray? The concept of the Babymoov Booster Seat is that rather than a high chair the child is sat on a dining chair with…

Trolley Time for Two {The Ordinary Moments}

I always used to enjoy going food shopping with LP. It was time for her and I to have a wander, have a chat and sing songs as we were going up and down the aisles with her in her trolley. We’d play row the boat as I pushed her round and we’d sing Old Macdonald. She’d say bye to each aisle as we turned to go into the next…
