Top That Books – The Velveteen Rabbit and Angry Birds Magnetic Mix-Up Review

As you should all know by now, books are loved in our house. It was very important to me to instil a love of books in our children from a young age and we have religiously read bedtime stories with LP since she was 6 months old. We find that she usually asks for 2 or 3 books a night and we are happy to oblige, it’s one of our…

Second Child Syndrome

When we found out we were pregnant with LP everyone was so excited. Family, friends, colleagues – even strangers in the street! Pregnancy makes everyone go a bit funny – happy, excited, emotional – new life, a new baby on the way!

I love Twitter

I have just passed the 30,000 Tweet milestone on Twitter. I love Twitter and it has become an extension of my social circle for me. I have a group of really close female friends in real life.

Solo Parenting Sucks

I always thought that dealing with LP by myself through dinner, bath and bed, was hard work, especially when she was tiny. Since she started walking, about 7 months ago, dinner, bath, bed got a lot easier when we were doing it by ourselves. As I’ve said before, Hubby works shifts and isn’t always around for LP’s bedtime – at worst he’s not here four evenings out of ten –…

Post-Baby Weight Loss Journey – Week 12

This last week I have eaten quite a lot of naughty food (This seems to be a recurring theme, doesn’t it?!) We had KFC earlier in the week and had lunch in Prezzo another day. I think a little bit of naughty food isn’t too bad for you and you should definitely allow yourself treats. But… We managed to get through at least 2 packets of biscuits this week too.…

Graco Sky Travel System Review

For the last few weeks I have been testing out Graco’s newest travel system, the Graco Sky as I am one of the finalists competing to be Graco’s next Ambassador! Up until the Graco Sky arrived I had been using either a massive double buggy or I’d have Little Man in the sling and LP in one of our traditional baby strollers – this was usually for any outings involving the car…
