Keeping Snug With a Shaun the Sheep Sleeping Bag From Slumbersac

I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that the worries you have when you have kids are things that never even crossed your mind before you were a parent. I knew I’d worry, I mean, that’s natural. I just didn’t know that I’d be worrying about things I’d never thought of before. One of the biggest concerns I had when I first had Cameo, my now two-year-old, was when he was in bed. They say you shouldn’t really put blankets on babies when they sleep but if you do they should be tucked right underneath the mattress so that…

What To Do When Chickenpox Strikes

When you become a parent it’s like this whole new world opens up to you. Mostly good, and some not so good. But there are some things that you just don’t know how to handle.

One of the things I’m prepping for now is the inevitable chickenpox attack. We’re making arrangements for him to possibly go to a nursery and a couple of new…

Why We Love Knitting – Giveaway

There’s something about baby clothes that are incredibly cute. To be honest, it’s probably because they’re just so tiny. What makes them even cuter is when they’re homemade. I’m so lucky that my mum is a super talented knitter. I’m not just talking socks and scarves. I’m talking full-on jumpers, cardigans and blankets. It’s pretty epic, watching her create something with her own hands and talent. It’s even lovelier when she knits baby clothes. We still have the first ever cardigan that she knitted Cameo and we’ll keep it in his memory box. Now, she’s knitted Marlos’ first cardigan too…

Moccis – The Cutest Baby Shoes In Town

Having a 19-month-old is pretty interesting most days. Every day Cameo learns something new and seems more like me. It’s become very apparent that just like me, he hates wearing socks or shoes (unless he is going for ‘big walk’) If you put socks on him, he sits and yanks them off. If you put shoes on he’ll pull them off at the first chance. Just like me! I’m a barefoot princess that’s for sure. I don’t doubt that Marlo will be the same. 6 weeks and counting, he is a right fidget with his toes. Let alone when he…
