Stupid things I have done whilst sleep deprived

Good news! The baby has a tooth. Maybe two, I’m not entirely sure. All I know is I was attempting to feed him at soft play and, well, ouch (see, I knew they were lying when they said feeding a baby with teeth wasn’t painful). Upon inspection with my finger, …

Guest blog: The Other Mother’s guide to toddler TV

This guide to toddler TV has been written by a good friend of mine. She has a two year old and is currently incubating number two. It was when my daughter was about a year old (and driving me nuts) that I first¬†decided to make use of the electronic babysitter, …

The perils of a mobile baby

I’ll come clean. As a first time mum, I was naive. I wasn’t ‘my baby does x because I’m a perfect parent’ naive or ‘I’ll never give my child a dummy and they’ll only eat organic vegetables and never tantrum in public’ naive. I wasn’t that kind of arsehole (I …

Hell’s teeth: The molars are coming through

A big and hearty welcome to my new readers. As lovely as it is to meet you all, I do feel the pressure is on a bit now. Rather than ranting anonymously into the abyss, I realise I should probably put a bit of thought into attempting to be witty …

There is nothing that delights me more than a Shit Parenting Meme. I am fortunate, perhaps, that the majority of my Facebook friends are fairly intelligent decent sorts and my feed is often meme-less, but the occasional doozy does slip through. I have compiled a number of these for your …

*That* viral Facebook rant

I don’t think any parenting blog would be complete today without sharing this wonderful Facebook status rant. Part of me hopes it’s a deliberate troll post (of course, the easiest way for me to make this blog go viral would be to make offensive statements about breastfeeding being close to …

Big firsts: With two under two I’ll take all the wins that I can

I haven’t updated in a while because, well, there hasn’t really been a lot to update. Potty training went to shit (fortunately figuratively rather than literally) as soon as daddy was back at work. Suddenly weeing on the carpet was more fun than stickers or chocolate. I made the executive …

Play Don’t

I could write a long post about the difficulties of looking after two children.  Maybe one day I will*. Things you may take for granted when there’s just the one, like spending all day feeding, going back to bed straight after breakfast, or even just taking twenty minutes (and the …
