Guest blog: Beta Mummy does bathtime!

As anyone who follows me over on Facebook or Twitter can’t have missed, I’m on my holidays! This of course means I’m too busy sipping sangria and sunning myself (or trying to apply suncream to tantrumming children and wishing I hadn’t eaten the prawns at the buffet) to write a post this …

We love the zoo (and I ain’t lion)*

I am totally nailing this mothering thing. Well, around once a month on average; that’s not a bad success rate.  And April’s success story? We had another really great day out yesterday at the zoo. The particular highlight for me (apart from feeding the giraffes and some awesome birds, although …

I hate Peppa Pig

I am not an aficionado of children’s television, but alas, I do know every episode of Peppa Pig word for sodding word. If there is a two year old in the world that does not love Peppa, I have not met them. It seems to have hit upon the magical …

Two small ones: The perfect age gap?

There is a 19.5 month age gap between my two. The toddler is now a feisty and talkative 28.5 month old, and the no-so-little-anymore one a slightly-more-interesting-and-less-screamy-than-he-was 9 months.

Co-“sleeping”: How do you do it?

As those of you who follow me over on Facebook will know, about a month ago, we finally braved it and put the kids in together. Yes, the toddler and the baby are now officially sharing a bedroom. This was always the intention; we live in a two bedroom house …

Happy Easter

…To all the parents who have eaten the majority of their children’s chocolate already. Remember, you are doing the nation’s childhood obesity crisis a favour and your children will come to thank you for it one day. As is tradition, the grandparents went all out and supplied these two with …

Eight things I learned at the farm

I don’t often post things that could be misconstrued as boastful, but on Friday, we (me and the kids, two on one. Where is my medal?) had what I would call a really good day trip to the farm. By really good, I mean we got going almost on time, …

Happy Mother’s Day

Just a short one today before I get taken out for my slap up Mothering Sunday lunch (That’s a lie. Although the in laws are visiting so I might get to sit without a child touching me for a while so that will be nice). I am a very lucky …

Snot fun (it really isn’t): Toddler illness. Urgh

As I write this, from what I am sure is to be my death bed (I promise, I am totally not being over dramatic), I am trying to remember when everyone in this house was last fighting fit. It seems a very long time ago indeed. If it isn’t one …
