The mess!

Do you ever get the kids into bed, relax on the sofa, possibly with a glass of wine, and then look at the piles of toys and think – what’s the point of tidying it up when it’s just going to get messy again tomorrow? I know I do. But as much as you keep telling your brain to shut up, it keeps on saying…..You cannot relax until it is tidied away on the toy shelf or in the toy box. But hang on, perhaps for a change you should just tidy up the kitchen and get a fry up on. Or even have a teddy bears picnic After their tour of Australia I think It’s time Kate and Wills put George to bed. The excuse here is that I can’t make stuff like this with a two year around who wants me to play with her but won’t let… View Post

Toilet Training Update!

You may have read my post from a couple of days ago regarding the toilet training saga we were experiencing. Well what a difference a day makes. The day after writing that post E used the toilet. After lots of wet pants I opted for bare bum time. She obviously needed the toilet and she said she needed to go upstairs, off we went and she then sat herself on the toilet and did a wee! Once that happened she was highly excited, she received lots of praise and a chocolate mini egg. From that point on E has been drinking lots because she tells me she wants to do big wee’s. E had a little accident whilst at pre school yesterday when she didn’t get to the toilet in time but aside from that she is doing well and trying really hard. We have told her if she stays… View Post

Peppa Pigs Big Splash!

Earlier in the year my mum told me that Peppa Pigs Big Splash was coming to the Hall for Cornwall, Truro, I decided to book tickets. I knew that Emily would enjoy it but I was also a little worried that she would have a short attention span, I had visions of her wanting to run around a packed theatre. The day before the show we told Emily that we were going to see Peppa Pigs Big splash, she seemed excited but I think that’s because she thought we were going back to Peppa Pig World. On the morning of the show we set off with plenty of time thinking that we could get in there with time to spare. That plan didn’t quite work out as we spent a long time trying to find parking. This was Emily’s first time to the theatre, her eyes were as wide as… View Post

My Struggles With Toilet Training.

I believe there must be a lot of mothers like me who must be failing in toilet training in their first attempts. I spoke to a couple of friends and also to a few mothers i befriended in the toddler play groups but i was not able to get them divulge the details of how did they manage. They were unanimous that this was not a problem for them. Mothers with two children said the elder one learnt on their own and the second one learnt by watching the elder one. Great!!! The two elderly ladies in my life, my mother and my mother in law remember very less of it now except for the fact that they too did not struggle with it, their babies got potty trained on their own. How much I wish for my Daughter would have been like their perfect children ( who are offcourse… View Post
