Preserving Adorable & Special Memories

I love taking photographs. Since Bob arrived in our lives 7 years ago my love for photography has grown. Digital photography has changed the way we see photos. I miss taking a film to the developers and the anticipation when you open the envelope. Now we know how our photos look as soon as we have taken them. It does help with waste as many of my prints were not very good. Now you are sure that all of your [click here to read on]

Giving Your Child the Gift of Self Confidence

In my experience one of the most important parts of a child’s character to be developed is that of self-esteem and self-confidence. Although these traits are often viewed as some of the most desirable traits to develop in any child they remain stubbornly difficult to achieve. The argument over nature vs nurture has raged for many years and whilst applicable to this topic, it is not for discussion today. The truth is this is something that could fill ten blog [click here to read on]

My Summer Wardrobe

Summer is here! It seems like we had to wait a long time but then 2 weeks after the snow fell the sun began to shine. My Uggs and winter coats have been packed away and my thoughts are turning to a lovely summer wardrobe. Each summer I find myself dashing to the shops as Bob and Bow have outgrown all of their summer clothes. Somehow, even though I don’t grow out of my clothes, when summer arrives I never [click here to read on]

Chasing A Good Night’s Sleep For You & Your Baby

Seeing your baby sleeping peacefully is one of those rare precious moments many parents find themselves enjoying. Unfortunately, that isn’t possible for everyone to experience. Often babies struggle to sleep through the night which leaves them cranky and parents at their wits end. Luckily, there are quite a few ways a parent can ensure their little one gets that much needed night of peaceful shut eye, while allowing themselves the same luxury. With many things on the market and little tricks of the parenting trade [click here to read on]

Super Shoes

Bow has been having fun reviewing the Shimmy Shoes from Dotty Fish. These shoes have a thicker sole than the previous shoes that we have reviewed but they are still super soft. They are made of durable leather which makes them perfect for developing feet and the sole is non slip. Bow definitely put these shoes through their paces. I was worried that the soft sole may not be able to cope with Bow’s rough and tumble but I soon [click here to read on]

The Potty Diaries -Take 2

I was adamant that I wouldn’t potty train Bow until he was nearly 3. I started potty training Bob when she was 2 and 3 months but it was very stressful and I think that is because I tried to do it too soon. I have many friends who waited until their children were nearly 3 and they all seemed to get it within a week. Recently Bow has been wanting his nappy changing every time he does a little [click here to read on]

Party Time Again

Bob has had an amazing party every year. We always have a theme, so far we have had parties with the following themes; Teddy Bears Picnic, Clowns, Woodland Fairies, Disney Princesses, Under The Sea and Trolls (which I have yet to write about as I am still getting over the craziness).The Trolls Party was quite manic as I think we invited too many people. This year, as she has changed schools, her guest list has grown! I have been panicking [click here to read on]
