Getting your toddler to brush their teeth can be a bit of a battle… especially if they hate having their teeth brushed, so here are my top tips on how to get your toddler to brush their teeth.

Top Tops on how to get your toddler to brush their teeth

We are lucky with Boo as she loves to brush her teeth and asks several times a day if she can brush her teeth – and I think this is because we have started early with some good (and fun) habits. Read More…

It’s been a very busy week this week – my husband has been doing a three day course (on top of the one he does two nights a week) it’s related in terms of subject matter but a separate qualification.  (Don’t ask me the particulars it’s scary I.T related stuff so I have no clue!) It has meant a week off work – and extra long days at university studying and even later nights at home studying. His exam was at 9am this morning.

Studying, Studying and more Studying - I am so proud of my husband and all of the studying he has been doing

There really is something really annoying about saggy nappies, isn’t there? I mean they really don’t look very nice and I am sure it can’t be much fun, as a toddler running round with a nappy hanging down to your knees! Even with just a little bit of wee in them some nappies really do sag. So when I was asked if Boo would like to try some Pampers Active Fit as part of the #SagGoneGrooveOn campaign I said yes.

#SagGoneGrooveOn with Pampers Active Fit - we have been very hard at work testing the Pampers Active Fit nappies

I received the box containing the Pampers Active Fit and the demo kit – it was all very exciting until Boo decided that the scissors were for her. She still asks for them now! You can see, in the video how I got on with the demo – (could I keep my hands still for even 4 seconds… nope) and also how Boo got on with the Pamper Active Fit Nappies too… Read More…

I have to say I was looking forward to weaning when Boo was a baby – mainly because I had heard that it was one of those magical points at which reflux symptoms lessened. That wasn’t the case for us, sadly, but weaning was still good, messy fun. (Though let’s not think about the nappies!)

Weaning was...awesome - the fun, the mess it was just great!
My nephew has recently started weaning and it’s amazing the difference between how he and Boo dealt with foods in those very first weaning days. It has brought back a lot of memories for me. The mess, the faces when she tried certain foods for the first time, and the really strange foods she actually liked (and the combinations she ate them in!) One of my fondest weaning memories was Boo tucking in to (and I mean really gnawing on) a steak at my brother’s wedding when she was about 8 months old! Everyone was very impressed and she still likes steak now. Read More…

I feel like this is a little bit of déjà vu as Boo has already started nursery before when she was 11 months old but after three months I decide to stop working and Boo stopped nursery.  But now that Boo is two she is starting nursery again.

Boo is starting nursery - again - finally ready to start the process of nursery again - after a break of nearly a year - I know Boo is ready, but am I

I want to start this slowly, one morning a week and then in a couple of months maybe two mornings a week and then extend those mornings to include lunch.  This is so that by the time Boo is 3 she is ready to do 5 mornings a week and it won’t be as much of a shock for either her or me (mainly me!)
