Encouraging Better Toddler Eating with Clever Grip Cutlery

*Gifted Products

As you will know from some of my Facebook posts, dinner time can be a real struggle in our household. Breakfast can go down a treat and can even last all morning, lunch is usually a healthy selection of finger foods which includes meat, cheese, fruit and so on but dinner time? That is a whole other ball game! Hot meals are not Jake’s favourite and trying new foods is a battle I have started to despise at 5pm. I’m not sure why this has occurred but he has always been a very choky child and has always had issues with different textures so I think it has become a natural progression over the last couple of years.

When Your Boy Really Turns into a Boy!

We’ve gradually made our way through the stages. The terrible two’s weren’t too bad and I would have to say this threenager stage has been much worse but now I have found myself wandering into new territory, a place where my child is testing and pushing boundaries more than he ever has done before. Yep, Jake is turning into a proper boy!

It’s been a change over the last 2 weeks and Continue reading “When Your Boy Really Turns into a Boy!”

The Differences Between a Three-Year-Old and a Two-Year-Old

As a first time parent, it can be easy to get swept along with the milestone charts, the opinions of others, the ‘I did it this way’ advice and listening to a never-ending cycle of those magical words ‘it gets easier’. What many people fail to mention is that the newborn bit is actually the easiest part – so straight away you are being led into a false sense of security that it will become easier. I will be honest with you though, it won’t, it will become more challenging… Sorry. Yet one of the most spoken about phases Continue reading “The Differences Between a Three-Year-Old and a Two-Year-Old”

Toddlerdom- The term used to describe the final transition from cute baby to full-blown crazy toddler.

Not quite yet in the Oxford English Dictionary but I am pretty sure the term will catch on!

Top tips for flying with your child

As I write this I am sat happily and safely in a villa in Zante. I say safely because I can admit that a small part of me was bricking it about flying after so many recent devastating events which have happened all over the world. Maybe I wouldn’t have been quite so concerned if I didn’t have a child; it does seem as though dangers are now much more heightened in my mind with having a little person to protect.

Anyway, we are here and Jake’s first Continue reading “Top tips for flying with your child”

A Day as a Toddler

Imagine your how your day would go if you acted it out as a toddler. I watch my son every day and am drawn into his world of innocence, cheekiness, fun and drama and I just wonder how much more enjoyment adults would get if it was ‘acceptable’ to behave differently. This is how I imagine my day would go: Continue reading “A Day as a Toddler”
