The blog post where I talk about sleep, AGAIN!

Yes, I am going to talk about sleep, and probably sound a bit whiney, but this is more of an update post, than anything else. We recently discovered that Small Boy has probably been suffering with chronic ear infections, which are […]

Happy Birthday Small Boy!

This time three years ago, labour was starting. You were on your way. 5 days late, and your birth had some highs and lows, with the fear of meconium aspiration, and that you were in distress. You entered the world as you meant to go on, letting your presence be known, with a little drama […]

I hate being the tooth fairy…

I read a blog post recently by the lovely Tara who blogs at Sticky Fingers, on the topic of  wobbly teeth,  and I chuckled and agreed with her, because frankly, I am not excited by the whole child loosing teeth thing, and it actually grosses me out, but  I kind of put it to the […]

So, do we have an answer….?

Or at least we hope, we have worked out why Small Boy may not be sleeping so well. I am kicking myself, and feel very guilty, that I should have worked it out sooner, but now we know, and hopefully we can work our way to a solution. At Christmas time, Small Boy got flu, […]

A slight problem – I think I am addicted to Angry Birds!

(Photo source) We have a new toy in the house. I have an Amazon Kindle Fire, which replaced my old Kindle, which sadly, got into the hands of a certain Small Boy, who dropped it, by accident, and sent it to it’s death. The Kindle Fire is a tablet device, which can be used for […]

So, what do you do?

When your child is one of those toddlers/children who is feisty,  has a healthy pair of lungs, and is going through that wonderful tantrum stage that those of us who have experienced know so well, and those of us who had children who never went through it, sigh with relief that it’s not their child turning […]
