Cutlery is still not greatly used in this house, hands are by far the quickest and easiest way to shovel as much food into one’s mouth as possible, and to be honest we are a go with it house, embracing the mess through gritted teeth and allowing Flossie to do it in her own time. […]
The tipped up bowl full of pasta, or worse rice! The thrown plate only for the dog to eat the contents before you are even aware of the commotion, and don’t even let the idea formulate of eating out in public! This was our life before we discovered the most amazing product the Mini EasyMat. […]
Flossie absolutely adores water, bathtime is probably her favourite time of day whatever mood she is in, plonking in some water and she is happy.

This is a word that I swear is given to every baby at some point in their little baby lives, but do we know exactly what it is and how we can help those long crying episodes (the baby not ours I mean, although more on our crying later). I remember those early days when […]
June is such a busy month for us in terms of celebrations, its our 1st wedding anniversary, hubby’s birthday and father’s day (all in a space of 3 days) and never did we imagine it would be celebrated with a 2 ½ month old in tow, our dreams of a romantic weekend away were quickly abolished. […]
