The curse of being a dark haired woman

I’ve often listened to very fair haired people talk about having to wear mascara everyday, and draw on eyebrows, and wondered what that must be like.

It was a new school year, and my eldest daughter had just started at a brand new nursery school. That all important year before school, and a full five morning a week schedule.

Managing Child Behaviour; well, trying to anyway

A few weeks back I published a post featuring some insightful lessons on positive parenting that I was desperately clinging to after a tough few weeks with our two year olds behaviour. Our five year old also had developed a new found attitude at school that was making me feel like the child, not the parent. more “Managing Child Behaviour; well, trying to anyway”

Swimming lesson hacks for parents of small people

When it comes to swimming lessons, we have been rolling with the punches for a while now.
