My plans were that Ellie would be completely toilet trained by the time the 6 week holidays were over but the closer we got the more I realised she really wasn't ready. She would have tantrums whenever we offered the potty or cry if she didn't have a nappy on. She would tell us it… Continue reading No more nappies
Ever since Ellie was first born I have loved Nuby Products. In the hospital we used the First Infant Milk Starter Kit which used Nuby teats. Since that day Ellie refused any other branded bottle and on her second day at home we had to go to Boots and buy a set of Nuby bottles… Continue reading Nuby Trendz
I remember taking Ellie swimming while on maternity leave and I clearly remember being in the water 5 minutes and having to get out because she HATED it!

We visited Enginuity, which is a science museum in Ironbridge, (Telford, Shropshire) during this half term and is one of ten museums in the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage site. We are incredibly lucky to have these museums on our doorstep and want to make use of what our great town has to offer.

Wow the terrible twos are in full swing over here. I have always heard that redheads have fiery tempers but I'd never fully believed that hair colour could define temper yet I seem to have the fiestiest toddler ever!
