Baby Number Two

Baby Number Two

The best kept accidental secret - we are expecting baby number two this coming Spring. Just like the royals (Harry & Meghan) we are expecting our baby in April time and couldn't be more excited. Chances of them arriving at the same time? We shall see.  We didn't actually get around to telling all our friends for such a long time, it became more and more obvious when I would arrive to the pub looking like I was carrying more than a big lunch. So, just before Christmas, I went with the big ol' social media announcement days before hitting the third trimester. ...

Oh hello old friend

Okay, I took a bit of time away from this blog. When I say a bit of time, I mean about a year... that's okay right? Different reasons behind it, one was asking myself, what is the bloody point. For the time it takes to write a blog, vs the SEO impact, what is the point. But I'm given myself a slap in the face and said - this has got to work.

Introducing... Tell Kiddo

Tell Kiddo is a wonderful independent label who make storing our little one's ghastly plastic toys and piles of washing a treat. With their smile-inducing monochrome illustrations  on paper and fabric bags, we are thrilled to be included as one of their UK stockists.  Tell Kiddo is a family run business, started when Maria was on maternity leave with her first son. It's well-known that babies first start to see in black and white so Maria spent time painting paper bags for her son's room. Thank goodness she did as she answered our storage prayers!  Shop the full range here...

Childbirth NCT Super Mum Upfront Mama

Things that happen during NCT classes:

Via the hilarious Upfront Mama:  1. You spend your first NCT eyeing all the couples in your group and deciding who you reckon you will and won't end up being with friends with and who you have the most in common with. When you get home, you and your husband discuss this at great length. 2. There's always one Mum to be who is really confident about the whole birth thing and gives loads of advice to the others who are slightly in awe of her. 3. There's another Mum to be who looks like she might faint whenever the...

Au Revoir Sophie the Giraffe

As far as I can tell, guilt and parenting seem to go together hand in hand.  Whether it’s your toddler falling over, or not spending enough time with them because you’re stuck at the office, there’s always something to feel bad about. But the good news is, you can save yourself a guilt trip if you never bought your child the super popular Sophie the Giraffe toy. Why? Because Sophie the Giraffe is a very cute, but potentially unsanitary, breeding ground for mould. Just like when we discovered the mouldy Tommee Tippee cups, parents have been extremely worried and have been sharing pictures...
