Posted in Advice, Top Tips by

I thought I’d end this year similar to the last two where I talk about what I learned in 2016 and 2017.

It’s been a rather challenging year with lows and highs, and I just hope the 2019 offers more of the happiness we’ve carried through 2018.

Leo’s Dairy Intolerance

Posted in Baby, Life by

At the beginning of the year Leo was a little sickly and we weren’t sure how we could help ease his tummy bugs and general sickness, as he was constantly ‘under the weather’.

I read something online that said to remove cows milk from a baby or toddlers diet and substitute for soya as dairy can contribute to sickness and by some miracle, we saw Leo become less ‘sicky’.

Happy Halloween!

Posted in Photography, Seasonal by

Who had a spook-tacular day? We kept it pretty simple this year as Leo had been at nursery all day and our road was shut off so we couldn’t go anywhere.

Lemon and Blueberry Mini Muffins

Posted in Life, Recipes by

Leo has started to become a little bit of a ‘fussy eater’, so I started googling fun food ideas for toddlers that were also really good for them.

I came across a load of different muffin recipes that were jam packed with veggies and decided I’d make something from his favourite fruit, blueberries!

5 Things I Said I Would Never Do as a Parent

Posted in Advice, Top Tips by

Before I became a mum, I would always make bold statements about the type of parent I wanted to be. But one thing I should never have said is “I won’t let my child do that”.

It’s quite easy to make assumptions of the type of parent you will be when you don’t have a child, but once you become a mum or dad you soon realise that ‘perfect parenting’ doesn’t exist.
