Too young to have FOMO?

I was given what I think was a back handed compliment today, someone suggested I was too much fun and little un was probably creating because she thought I’d be having a bit of a party without her, haha. I mean can 5 year olds get FOMO?? Should I make our time together more boring […]

Can I go out tonight please?

I’ve got a problem and I could do with your help, please help me with this one. My five-year-old won’t let me go out! I’m a single mum with the sole care of my daughter, no weekends off, nothing, nada. So yes the problem is she won’t let me go for a night out, a […]

How to finish with the moon?

All the way through being a mum I’ve sort of had a project on the go, it’s the main issue of the day if you like, I’ll concentrate on that until we get it nailed then look for the next mission. So, it might be eating decent food or potty training or not taking your […]

Split up from my kid on a flight!

I really can’t believe what I’m about to tell you. We’ve just had a lovely holiday in Sardinia, went to the airport to check in for the return flight and walked away with our tickets. It was pure luck then I looked at the boarding passes to see if we had a window seat for […]

I need your help with the dentist….

That’s twice now, twice that we’ve been to the dentist and Lois hasn’t opened her mouth, twice now that I’ve been through the embarrassment and twice now that I’ve had to rebook the appointment so that the dentist can hopefully one day, count her teeth before she’s in her 50s. This time I even went […]

Merry Christmas, for one day only.

The reality never lives up to the dream does it? And that’s never more true than at Christmas. We all strive for the perfect day with a turkey dinner and a snowman built out the front of our house, just like the pictures on the cards. But it’s just not like that is it? I’ve […]

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 […]

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 […]

Do I tell her or not?

Lois was due to have her 3 year old jabs this week. Appointment made I then agonised over whether to say something about it to her or keep schtum. If I tell her, will she have nightmares and wake up screaming about needles? But if I leave it, will she hate me forever for giving her […]

How do you choose a school?

In just about a year my little one will be starting school and there seems to be a lot of ‘mum chat’ about it, everywhere I go. The question that comes up is where will you send her? Here’s my first point, I wasn’t aware that we got a choice, I thought you just went […]
