My Top 5 Favourite Shops For Toddler Boys Fashion

My little boy is a November baby, which means that his Autumn/Winter wardrobe is usually taken care of courtesy of his birthday and Christmas presents.  He really does get spoilt and his wardrobe is usually bursting at the seams, and a lot of items get carried over to the next year as children’s sizing can be a bit hit and miss. The only downside is that they are not necessarily the clothes I would personally choose to dress my son in.  They are lovely and he looks great in them but they’re not always to my personal taste.  I can…

The Little Boy Who Lost His Name Book Review

Like most other parents it is part of our nightly routine to have a bedtime story.  O’s bookcase is full, but he often tends to prefer to have the same story read over and over.  I can now recite Rabbit’s Nap without the words and he knows most of Norman The Silly Slug just by looking at the pictures.

Or maybe it’s that I’m just a mum who is fully aware that my little man will be starting pre-school in a couple of months and the more I can do to help his progress the better. We’ve really encouraged his counting and he can quite confidently write his name (if you don’t mind that the letters are all different sizes and all over the page) but I loved the idea of being able to help him start…

The Toddler House Takeover

10 signs that your home is being taken over by your toddler: 1. The biggest clue is the pile of crap toys that will congregate in one corner of the living room.  I swear that pile multiplies over night! And you can’t get rid of anything, ever, because as soon as you try to sneak something away (you know, something that they have played with for 5 minutes about 6 months ago) it suddenly becomes their most treasured possession!
