I am feeling very emotional about the whole thing, he seems to be growing up […]READ MORE

I used to be one of those people who thought I knew it all about parenting, and that I would be a perfect parent, that is, until I had children, and then realised how utterly wrong I was, and how little I actually knew about the reality of having your own children One thing I […]READ MORE
So, I have pondered over whether I would actually blog about my weight loss attempts, other than to write about the type of eating plan I was using, and some recipes, but I have decided to jump in, and do a weekly goal setting and blog about my progress (hopefully not lack of) I figure […]READ MORE
The Mad House of Cats and Babies celebrated one year of blogging, this past Friday. I started the blog in April 2012, but didn’t actually “do anything” on the blog until the 16th of August when I wrote this first post. I cannot believe I have been banging away on this keyboard for a year, […]READ MORE

Grandma and Grandpa arrived, and brought gifts, and then went off to France, they’re back this weekend. Small Boy found the karaoke function on his music player, it was cute, at first, now it means we all need […]READ MORE
I would like to point out, that my 3.5 year old doesn’t normally volunteer to wear reigns, and never has actually worn them. He found them in a bag of stuff I was given a long time ago, and was clearing out, wanted to wear them, for this outing, and insisted that his sister be […]READ MORE

Welcome to the Mad House. I originally started this blog, in a blur of sleep deprivation, to get my thoughts and feelings down somewhere, on parenting, second time round, with a baby that had major sleep issues (and not just normal ones) but it has grown and grown. We are now well into our fifth year at the Mad House and you will find blog posts on anything from gardening, to politics, with lots of ramblings on parenting, and also about living with food intolerances. I blog about cows milk and gluten free cooking too.
