Toddler tea time: A simple five step process

Getting decent food into the big one seems to be a constant struggle. Out and about, I don’t even try to force vegetables into her any more (unless they’re bean shaped and covered in tomato sauce) for fear of the public tantrum. At home though, this sucker for punishment just …

Weekends with the kids

It’s the weekend! Sweeter words were never uttered. Ah, that’s right. I forgot. I have two small children… It means absolutely bugger all. If you don’t have children, which probably isn’t a big percentage of the readership of this blog to be honest, your weekend might include one or more …

Mummy’s hangry: Post pregnancy dieting

Most women who’ve just given birth, with the notable exception of celebrities, tend to leave hospital – shock horror – a few pounds heavier than when they got pregnant.  You can’t have failed to note the furore that surrounded poor old Kate Middleton when she dared to leave the hospital …

First time mums

I liken First Time Mums to learner drivers.  We were all there once, for some of us not so long ago, but once you aren’t one any longer you suddenly know better.  Just like learner drivers, First Time Mums begin to irritate you irrationally and you find you now have …
