Good or bad parenting?

I’m yet to determine if the story im about to tell you makes me a good or a bad parent. Me and a friend of mine took our kids to a nice big play park to have a run around, let off some steam and have fun at the weekend. Good? We perched ourselves on […]

Do your kids put you off?

Can I just say, it’s EXTREMELY off putting while you’re doing a workout in the living room, to have your 5 year old daughter acting as a judge for Strictly Come Dancing, holding up score cards marking your work. And announcing that when you get a 1 that means you’re out!

Do I have the weirdest child in the world?

My five-year-old daughter has just wolfed down a full roast chicken dinner, minus the potatoes, she doesn’t like them not even chips, strange kid huh. Nothing really out of the ordinary there, until you hear what she asked for next. With a clean plate in front of her she asked “Can I have some more […]

Caught cake handed! 

Caught out! Yep I got caught red handed trying to hide the fact that I was stuffing my face with chocolate Swiss roll from a kids party buffet. I wasn’t even hungry until the bowls of sausages and crisps started to come out. My daughter only eats 3 wotsits and half a chicken nugget on […]

My tip for fussy eaters

I was amazed at something we found on Holiday so I’ve brought it home with me. The kids all get a lanyard to wear around their necks and for every food they try or each healthy food they eat they get a sticker. I’ve never seen my four year old tuck in so much. The […]

It’s just baby weight

I’ve just chucked out 40 bras! 40 bras from a pre-baby time, that I’ve kept, thinking that my body, at some point will go back to its original shape. Ha, no such luck, she’s nearly 5 years old and I’m still trying to lose the pregnancy weight. I feel sick when I see celebs snapping […]

Christmas crazy

I’ve been called crazy for being so organised for Christmas, but I can promise you there’s method in my madness. By the 1st of December I am completely sorted for the festive season with cards written and the presents all bought, its plain sailing from then on in. You see it frees me up completely […]

Am I being clever or lazy? 

Does anyone else see an easy option so clearly? I’m probably living up to my ‘bad mum’ title by saying this but my daughter is a fussy eater and so if I can spot a way to feed her that doesn’t take a. any cooking from me and b. Any preparation from me, then I’ll […]

Rowing with a 3 year old….

Omg 3 year olds are hard work! Last night I started to write a list of all the things that my little girl had had a paddy about. Remember, They all happened within an hour and I had to either justify all of these things or back down and let her do what SHE wants! […]

The absolute bonus having a toddler….

Having had a lovely week away in Cyprus last week and making the most of the all-inclusive buffet, I was dreading getting on the scales.There were 8 of us away together and it really shouldn’t have been a competition as to who could fill their plate the highest but it turned into that. And I […]
