Double Crown Nightmare

I have pretty shit hair and I have had for as long as I can remember. I have a double crown and a cow lick at the front of my hair. I’ve never been able to have a nice looking fringe because it’s always ended up with a strange parting in it and I’ve never been able to have a middle parting. I think when I found out we were having a girl I was quite excited at being able to do really fun hair styles for her because I can barely put my own in a pony tail. Unfortunately,

LeapFrog Shapes and Sharing Picnic Basket Review

9 Tips To Transition From Cot To Toddler Bed

Months and months ago we bought Erin’s toddler bed. I planned on Erin using it nearly as soon as it arrived. I realised though that she wasn’t quite ready at that point in time. She had been going through a rough time when it came to sleeping and was barely sleeping for more than a couple of hours at a time. We were still also co-sleeping kind of and napping together in the day. Last month we started solo napping though and Erin transitioned really well. We introduced Erin to her bed as soon as it was put together and

Toddler Travel Boredom Busters

Last week John and I headed off to London for a couple of days with Erin in tow. The last time we took her was last summer so traveling was much easier because she slept more!
