Making the most of fun in the sun
Summer seems to have come early this year and Leo and I are taking full advantage. Finding ways to keep your toddler entertained in the house all day can be challenging but stress no more my friends.. the sun has arrived to help relieve the pressure, hooray! Gone are mornings full of Cbeebies and gone are afternoons full of reading the same book over and over. Instead days are now being filled with outdoor fun and adventures and wonderful memories are being made.
However, unfortunately for us we live in Wales, famed for it’s cold and rainy climate. Everyday the sun is out me and Leo are also out. I’m not wasting a second of this weather as we know too well that when it rains it pours and the weather can change in a heartbeat in Wales! View Post
Why won’t my toddler eat? – living with a fussy eater
Does anyone else miss the early days of weaning? Where you could just blend healthy food up and your baby would just eat it off a spoon? I definitely miss that.
At the time it didn’t seem that easy but I would take all the blending and mashing in the world over our current situation. Since about 9 months Leo has been self feeding and eating pretty much the same as us. It was all going well, apart from the odd few days here and there, but since he hit about 18months mealtimes are becoming a massive battle.
How singing and signing helped my todder learn to talk
Leo has just turned 20months (how?!!) and we have arrived at the ‘ sponge brain ‘ stage. You know what I mean, your toddler is starting to say more and more words and is copying things you say. I may have been a bit late in recognising that this stage had actually arrived though.
Following a minor accident in the kitchen and an annoyed outburst from myself, Leo said his first ‘naughty word’ the other day. It’s safe to say I was completely mortified and will be watching what I say very carefully from now on!

How to look after your mental well being by writing a ‘to don’t list’
Yes, you did read that right.
I am a woman of lists: to do lists, shopping lists and now, blogging ideas lists. To do lists help me keep on top of everything going on and even if there is loads of stuff to do I always feel like having it written down makes it seem more manageable.
Anyway, we all know the purpose of the do list but this post is all about writing a to don’t list and how this practice can help improve your mental wellbeing.
What a beautiful bank holiday weekend we are having! Did everyone have a lovely easter yesterday? After giving up all sweet things for lent, I must say I am still feeling pretty sick after my massive chocolate binge yesterday.
It is safe to that between the 3 of us we probably had enough easter eggs to stock a small shop!
You know you have a toddler when…
Over the past few months I have watched Leo change from a baby into a little boy right in front of my very eyes. It is amazing to watch him learn and grow, I can’t believe he’s 19months old already!
Like most children his age he is very mischievous, cheeky and some of the things he does just completely baffle me. I have compiled a list of 5 tell tale signs you are living with a toddler. View Post
How are you?
Hi everyone! Please excuse the Mr Tumble reference, that programme has become far too big a part of my life recently and I just couldn’t resist.
I just thought I would write a quick post to introduce myself, my family and let you know what this blog is about.
My name is Wendy and I’m 23. I have been married to my husband Oli for nearly 2years and we have a 19month old son called Leo (we also have a Tom cat called Blue, I am massively outnumbered). I graduated from Swansea uni in 2012 but any big shot career opportunities were put on hold when I fell pregnant in the December. I love being a mummy and up until 6 months ago I was a stay at home mum. I am now working behind a bar a few nights a week and I suppose not much is different in the parenting department except that I miss out on bath and bed some nights. View Post
