Ok, I’ll admit it… sometimes I’ve actually had nightmares about travelling with my kids. It’s not that they’re not capable of behaving, it’s just that they’re toddlers and toddlers can be unpredictable! Often it’s not them I’m worried about - it’s me! What if I forget something? Something important like their food, a change of clothes or worse - an actual child!
I’ve been left in a cold sweat after dreams of running through the airport terminal in my baby food stained clothing, eyes in the direction I’m going, clinging to the bags for dear life whilst Coco sits patiently on the seat I just accidentally left her on.

I’ve spoken about this to you guys before in “breakfast for supper” but I’ve got to say it again… please don’t worry if your toddler is being fussy about what they eat. What a toddler wants to eat can change from week to week! Whilst they might love carrots, apples and celery one day, the next day they may refuse to eat any of those things. You’re not doing anything wrong, it’s just how kids can be sometimes!
So with that in mind, I wanted to draw up a list of some great, healthy snack ideas that toddlers (most of the time) will love. My two can get a bit grumpy if they refuse to eat their meals. I find that keeping some nutritious snacks handy can be a lifesaver for hungry children and also their harangued parents!

I’ve been looking absolutely everywhere for some non-cheesy but still super cute Father’s Day cards and it’s so hard to find nice ones. A first Father’s Day is kind of special so I really wanted to get something we’d want to keep instead of popping in the recycling! I figured that surely I can’t be the only one having this problem...right?
So far, the best places for cards I found was Etsy and Not On The High Street as they seem to have more modern, fun designs instead of the usual photo mashup/ personalised name stuff.
For now, I’ve put together a (hopefully) helpful list of a few favourite card ideas I loved for a first Father’s Day...

So I’ve got a controversial question for all you new mums out there: when’s the last time you did something just for you?
The thing about motherhood is that it is so easy to get sucked into the vortex of looking after your baby that you forget all about looking after yourself. And, in my experience at least, the likelihood of you doing that is probably doubled when you are looking after a baby who is having problems with teething.

If you are reading this through puffy, sleep deprived eyes whilst drinking your third coffee of the day in a bid to stay awake, then let me start with this: one day, hopefully not too far from now, your child WILL sleep through the night.
In the meantime, I want to reassure you that you are so so so not the only one pacing the kitchen at 3.30am, trying everything in your arsenal to soothe your baby back to sleep at the same time as trying not to WEEP that another night is slowly ticking into morning, with both you and your baby awake.
