Review: Tomy Dancing Pooh

LP has recently learnt to ‘bounce’. She’ll happily bend her knees and bounce on the spot for ages – her feet never move! It’s quite funny to watch and She reminds me a lot of this Tomy Dancing Pooh. Tomy Dancing Pooh is 12 inches tall and a lovely battery operated toy that most parents love to hate! Squeeze Pooh’s left hand to see him dance along to “Up Down,…

Up Close with the Graco Sky

Following on from my first Graco Sky post, I’ve now spent two weeks using the travel system as much as possible. I have used the Graco Sky travel system in every mode – with the car seat, with the pushchair seat forward and parent facing and also with the pushchair turned into a baby nest for Little Man. You can see a video of changing between the different modes here.…

Honesty in Blogging

I have been writing a new post a day on my blog for quite a while. These have been anything from my thoughts, what we’ve done that day, reminiscing, lists of things or reviews.

Now that I’m on maternity leave and Hubby works shifts Bank Holidays are irrelevant. To be honest, every day is pretty much the same to us – there is nothing to differentiate week days and weekends or each week day from another. Our life…

Post-Baby Weight Loss Journey – Weeks 9/10

Last Monday I didn’t have a weigh-in – our Weight Watchers meeting is closed on Bank Holidays and it was also LP’s Birthday party. Because of LP’s Birthday, and her best friend’s Birthday, we have been eating a lot of party food and ridiculous amounts of cake. We only ate a third of her ginormous cake at her party so we then had another 2 thirds to eat between the…

Baby Friendly Drop Scones

September is the start of Autumn and Autumn to me is all about apples, blackberries and plums. The flavours of autumn! I thought that apple pie and crumbles would be too obvious an autumn recipe so instead I have decided to make drop scones. Drop Scones are also known as Scotch Pancakes. They’re incredibly easy to make, can have near enough anything put in them and are very versatile when…
