What with all the walking we’ve been doing due to car issues, constant child demands and being vitamin D lacking, I have just been completely exhausted.

Caring For The First Tooth With Nelsons® Teetha®

By the time your child is around 2 and a half they should have all their milk teeth but there is no set date for this to happen.

ALDI Specialbuys New Baby Range

Over a year ago now we reviewed some nappies from ALDI and were so incredibly impressed by them. In fact they were the best nappy for absorbency we’ve ever used but unfortunately, at the time our local ALDI was a pretty long way away and it just didn’t work out cost effective to shop there. Especially just for nappies. But since …

My eldest is struggling academically. I never thought she would. When she was at nursery she was flourishing but going to school changed her. Her writing is falling well behind what it should be and so when Twinkl got in touch I was really excited about having some interesting new resources to hand to help my 7 year old bloom again. …

The 3rd Time Of Moving From Cot To Bed

P2 was just 15 months old when we moved her from cot to bed, or mattress on the floor to be precise. I don’t remember when I moved P1, I’m pretty sure she was much older. I thought we had plenty of time before it would be P3s turn but that time came and on the 23rd February she came …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 16 Months

To my Princess 3, I bet you’re getting bored of reading all these letters when they start with “I can’t believe you’re X months old now”. Well I can’t.

“It was lovely to have all three running about together”

Around Easter time each year since moving to Sevenoaks, we have been gifted a membership to the local Nature Trail by my MiL. I think originally it was my MiLs way of getting us to go out more because I was a little reluctant during the first 6 months of living here and was happy to spend day in day …

“I had made the definite decision not to cosleep with P3”

Cosleeping with P2 was not a conscious decision that we’d made. It just happened and we managed to get more sleep despite having a leg in our ribs or our eyes getting poked out. We coslept for around a year on and off. Although it worked for us, I had made the definite decision not to cosleep with P3 under …

“Having just one child is like going on holiday”

The first weekend of every month we have just P3. The other two go off for a weekend with my Mum. These weekends are strange for so many reasons.

3 Easy Recipes For Children’s Lunches With Bernard Matthews

When P1 first started school she was a packed luncher. She loved it but I absolutely hated trying to find new, filling ideas to put in them each day. She ended up eating chocolate spread sandwiches, some fruit and crisps each day. So as soon as the Government gave free school meals for Key Stage 1, we switched to school …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 14 Months

To my Princess 3, Wow, 14 months! I know I say this every single time but your babyhood is going so quickly and it feels like each time I blink you are doing something new. I have started to stop referring to you as a baby because you are now walking. It is very rare that you crawl and I …

Why Do Babies Cry?

Babies: For newborns, crying is their main way of communicating. Toddlers: Toddlers cry because they’re hungry, tired, uncomfortable or need affection – just like babies. Preschoolers and school-age children: Children tend to cry less as they get older. Once they can talk, it’s much easier for them to tell you why they’re upset and what they need. Why do we …
