Do you know your Daffodils from your Dandelions?

I LOVE this time of year. I love that when the days get lighter, the sun starts to make an appearance, and the whole world seems to come live with flowers, bloom and colour. Everything seems so much brighter and happier in Spring, and flowers are a bloggers dream – such beautiful backdrops! I have a few favourite flowers, namely daffodils, bluebells and rhododendrons, and I have photos of Erin with all of them! 🙂 We recently went to our local National Trust which was full in bloom with beautiful spring Daffodils. Erin loves the colour yellow, so she...

Trying to convince a nearly 4 year old that it is bedtime when it is light outside is like trying to trying to convince her there is...

10 reasons why ‘Sleep when baby sleeps’ is a STUPID thing to say

Oh Whoever came up with the concept of ‘sleep when baby sleeps’ is an actual real life idiot. Forgive me if I accidentally slip and punch the face of the next person who suggests it. I’ve made no secrets of the fact that both my daughters have been terrible sleepers. Erin didn’t sleep through the night till the age of 2, and so when Neve was born I figured I was owed a good sleeper. That went wrong. I’d previously blogged about how I’d be happy with not 40 winks but one solitary wink, and shared some fascinating facts...

Screening Screen Time

*This is a collaborative post* My daughters are growing up in a digital age. Despite being a bit of a geek, and therefore essentially a pro tech Mum, I am starting to question how much is too much and ask if I should be screening their screen time. As a parent, the iPad and TV can be handy tools of the trade. With a young sibling at home, there have been times when I have had to insist that Erin ‘entertains herself’ whilst I deal with a hungry baby, poop explosion or teething meltdown. As much as I’d love to give...
