The Time According To Toddlers.

A Toddler is a tricky beast at things concerning time. Their lack of punctuality is basically a crime. The concept of “a hurry” will fall mostly on deaf ears. And waiting for five minutes will feel more like twenty years. In general our small people don’t grasp time or what it’s for. So when it… Continue reading The Time According To Toddlers.

Supermum. (A Parody of Julia Donaldon’s Superworm).

It no secret that I am a huge fan / bordering on groupie of Julia Donaldson and her incredible children’s books.  They say that imitation is the ultimate form of flattery, which makes me very complimentary indeed as Supermum (A Parody of “Superworm”) is now my third parody of her work.  I also need to mention… Continue reading Supermum.

​An epic tale I share, one which may haunt forever more. A perilous, fraught journey to the realms of “The Front Door”. You’d think that two kids down now I’d be somewhat more prepared? Or had at least the decency to feel a fraction scared? But no. As wild and cocky as a stupid mum… Continue reading Quest To The Front Door…

Potty Training: The Rules

We’ve started potty training as The Boy has now turned two. If for no better reason than just “something fun to do?” *straight face* The Christmas tree’s a gonner and the room is bare and glum. What better sight to fill it than my offspring’s streaking bum? So… We read the training manual and we… Continue reading Potty Training: The Rules
