Arrrrgggghhhh World Book Day!

Tomorrow is World book day, our school didn’t dress up last year and I felt like they missed out a bit, but now I’m thinking it was great cos it took all of the stress away. You know how it goes, the email comes out from the school , everyone goes crazy for a couple […]

What are Dads for?

I often wonder if my daughter misses out with not having a father around at all, she has strong male role models all around her, but recently a couple of things have come up that I see as ‘dad’ jobs, the first is gross and the second I’ve just got on with. Farting, letting out […]

After school clubs

Cast your mind back to when you were at school, apart from netball, did you take part in any after school activities? This term my 5 year old daughter has been offered the chance to go to after school clubs, here’s a selection of what’s on offer, cricket, parachute fun (I presume they are meaning […]

When/how will co-sleeping End?

The fact is, my daughter has snuck into my bed in the middle of the night for 3 years now. She doesn’t get such a good night sleep and nor do I, so I’ve tried everything I can to get her to stay in her bed. She does fall into a slumber in her bed […]

Nativity problems

The cast list has gone up and hearts are broken, she only got the role of sheep 2. You would think it was the end of the world for my friends 6 year old daughter, sobbing uncontrollably at the thought of having no other lines than “baaaa baaaaa!” To say at the nativity. I totally […]

Soft play, heaven or hell?

Soft play, most people’s idea of hell on earth. Brightly coloured crash mats and climbing frames all covered in snot and jammie dodgers. That’s why the kids MUST keep their socks on, just in case the slip on something that shouldn’t be there. There’s a coffee shop that sells cakes that are too good not to […]

That woman, those shoes and the play date….

Let’s just have a little conversation about this woman who has tried to charge another mother £325 after a pair of boots got pen on them at a play date. Whaaaat? I’ve got too many questions, like why is a little girl wearing such expensive shoes if you’re going to be so prissy about it? […]

Just too tired….

I have a very tired little girl on my hands this week. My 3 year old is caught up in all the Christmas festivities in a big way. Everyday it seems there’s another thing going on, whether it be making another decoration to go on the tree, nativity or trip to see Santa, and it’s […]

Toy sale strikes fear!

Well done if you went to the Supermarket half price toy sale last week and got through it. I felt ready after watching a tv show on SAS training. I found myself in the middle of the bun fight and it was brilliant, much fun was had ‘politely pushing’ people out of the way, you […]

Pleeeeease don't do that!!

Must I point out EVERYTHING that my 3 year old shouldn’t do? Should I have to tell her that spaghetti hoops are to go in your mouth not up your nose. Should I have to tell her that you don’t have to ‘huggle’ the shop assistant that asked if you needed any help. And should […]
