Parenting | What Are Food Jags?

24 September 2018

 I went on a course all about eating and the term came 'food jags' came up a lot and it's so important that as parents we understand just what food jags means. For those that don't know, food jags means eating the same foods every single day. I recently wrote about tips on what to do if your child doesn't eat but I wanted to pop this on separately as it may only appeal to a specific audience.

Parenting | When Your Child Doesn't Want To Eat

17 September 2018

It's okay to let children eat with their hands

I recently went on a course all about children and their eating habits or lack of them. It really did open my eyes to just how many children out there either refuse to eat or will only eat certain things. I suppose we have been lucky that both our children are good eaters, I can't imagine what it must be like for parents whose children don't. Hopefully the tips below will help you deal with 'when your child doesn't want to eat'.

Our Morning At Mattel Play Liverpool

17 May 2016

A few weeks ago we popped along to Mattel Play Liverpool for the first time. I'm not sure who was more excited about visiting, Little J or Me. I had read lots about the new interactive play centre and it was all positive. I was a little unsure about visiting at the weekend as I was worried it would be overcrowded so we headed down to the Albert Dock quite early on a Saturday morning.

Wiplii Cardboard Toy Review and Giveaway

5 May 2016

Whether we are playing inside or out little J always has to have a tent or den set up. He loves to have a space were he can go and chill or play on his iPad. We have a pop up tent and I am always trying to jazz it up a little with cushions and stickers to make it look more appealing. When I fist heard about Wiplii and their range of cardboard toys I was really interested as I hadn't seen or heard anything like this before.

Friendship and adventure abound with the heart-warming tales of three year old Masha and her retired circus star friend, Bear, in their first DVD collection released by Abbey Home Media on Monday 25th April. We stumbled across Masha and the Bear just recently and little J loves it. It's actually really cute and after reading about it online I noticed Masha was voiced by Elsie Fisher who also voiced Agnes in Despicable Me.

Kiddyum Frozen Ready Meals

Little J has recently been trying out Kiddyum ready meals. Now if you are a parent you may, like me think ready meals are not for kids. They are usually processed foods crammed full of salt and sugars to make them taste good. However after reading up on Kiddyums I was please to learn that they contain all natural ingredients, no added sugar and low salt.

Celebrating Little J's 3rd Birthday

14 April 2016

If you follow me on social media you will already know that Little J's birthday didn't go exactly as planned as a few days before he got Chicken Pox. It's just typical isn't it especially when you have lots of fun and exciting things planned and he had waited so long for his birthday. As you can imagine he wasn't feeling great and probably celebrating was the last thing on his mind, but we did try to make his birthday and the days after as special as we could.

I'm Off To Have Tea Party With The Gruffalo

As most will probably know by now poor little J's birthday didn't go exactly as we had hoped as he had Chicken Pox. He is only just now starting to feel better now which is so sad because he missed his special day. However we did make a fuss of him for about a week later enjoying special treats, presents, visits from family and friends and lots of cake. We were sent a lovely Gruffalo party pack from House of Party which originally was meant to be for his nursery party but as he was ill we have had quite a few tea parties at home.

Although we have CBeebies on TV I do like to have a back up of DVD's they keep little J entertained  especially on car journeys or when we go away.
