Potty Pressure

We’ve been counting down the days to the school holidays. Not only for the fact that being off work is brill, but because it seemed the perfect time to start potty training. Potty ready, big boy pants bought and a copy of Pirate Pete’s Potty and we were ready to go. If you have seen any of my tweets over the past few days you’ll know it hasn’t exactly gone according to plan. In fact, it’s been a bloody disaster. To be honest, I’ve doubted a little that he was ready, but with my mother in law telling me how…

Fun In The Garden

Whilst the weather has been so amazing, and with the start of my summer holidays, we spent most of last week in the garden.  I have to admit the garden is originally the only reason we came to view the house, but we both fell in love with it instantly. O loves being outside, he’d never come in if he had his way, and always wants to help out. I didn’t even need to ask him to fill up the pool, I went to turn on the water and came back to find he was already doing it. The hot weather…

Love The Little Things #30

Here it is, the summer holidays have finally arrived!  I’m so excited at the thought of no more work for 5 weeks and lots of time spent with my gorgeous little man.  As I’m always off on a Thursday it feels like today is the first day of the hols and I’m loving that the wonderful weather is continuing.

The Ordinary Moments – Hide and Seek

O loves a game of hide and seek.  It’s  one of his faves, but there is something you need to know.  He is the worst hide and seeker ever!  Honestly, he is! His seeking skills aren’t great.  Whilst counting to ten he will have a sneaky peek from behind his hands (great big cheater) and despite this he can still miss seeing someone who is virtually in front of his face! But it’s his hiding skills that are truly terrible! He always chooses to hide in the place where he has just found someone.  Originality is not his forte, and he hasn’t quite grasped the concept that he has to hide…
