If you are a regular reader you’ll know that P2 has never been very good with sleep. Right from the very beginning up until recently she has woke on average 3 times a night but since turning two things certainly looked on the up. She had been sleeping through more often than not, if she did wake it would be …

My Healthy Habit with Juice Plus – Week 12

I started my weight loss journey 12 weeks ago nearly 13 this Thursday. I haven’t updated for a month and that’s mainly because the Juice Plus Journey, healthy eating and exercise has sort of gone to pot.

Would You Get Your Child’s Ears Pierced?

It’s been labelled as child abuse and parents that get their children’s ears pierced are very openly abused themselves with hurtful comments. I’m one of those parents. I had P1s ears pierced at 6 months old, I wanted her to have the choice of whether she wanted to wear earrings as …

“Mummy, how do babies get inside your tummy?”

I thought I had a few years to come up with my answer to the birds and the bees questions. My six year old thought differently.

I can’t remember the last time I saw P1 swim but I do remember the last time we took P2. P3 was in my tummy and I …
