Joovy Purpleness Caboose Pushchair Review

As you all know, because I’ve been banging on about it catching up on reviews, I went to The Baby Show last month. When I was trying to find the Fisher-Price stand I stopped to ask a friendly face at the Joovy stand. Pam clearly could see my sweaty, struggling face as I pushed the borrowed double buggy so started …

BBC Children In Need 2013

We’ve spent the whole evening watching every bit of BBC Children In Need. Both my hubby and I shed quite a few tears. People think that kids are so flexible to everything. I could definitely see that in the stories that were told tonight. They are flexible, but they are not indestructible. Things do effect children in ways we could …

“P2 has created her first piece of artwork”

At 40 weeks and 2 days old P2 has created her first piece of artwork. We went to a Messy Play group for 0-2yrs. It wasn’t overly “messy” focused but I braved the paint. The black paint. She loved it, wiggling her fingers all in the paint then bashing the paper. She had no idea what she was doing or …

New mothers ‘bribed to breastfeed’ by NHS with £200 shopping vouchers

I breastfed for 6 months. Exclusively. Rarely gave expressed breastmilk and never gave formula. Right up until 6 months. I didn’t wake up and decide that I wasn’t going to breastfeed anymore. P2 decided one day that she just wasn’t interested anymore. The pain I felt emotionally of her decision was overwhelming! I never imagined myself to be a mother …

“The time has come to lower the cot”

The time has come to lower the cot to its lowest setting. Our baby girl is getting grown up! I have no idea how I’ll reach into her during the night now. I’m 4ft 8in tall and struggled to reach her when it was on the middle setting but needs must. It’s pretty scary how my two princesses are so …

Thorntons Christmas Hero

I’ve been playing a little bit of Secret Santa and who better to play with than Thorntons?! They asked me who I thought deserved a special chocolate treat. I instantly knew who – my Grandad! My Grandad is 83 years old. He certainly doesn’t look it or act it either. He’s very deceiving! He’s no ordinary Grandad. Right from the …
