This year has been a busy one for all sorts of reasons. When September rolled around and October was on the horizon I started to wonder if I had done the right thing deciding to do Little Man’s 4th birthday party at home. I thought it would be easier with a new baby (or babies as I thought at the time). We were only inviting a few of his little friends as he had just moved from nursery to prechool so wasn’t really mentioning preschool friends yet. Then I started to worry as people started looking at me like I… View Post

Halloween has really got Little Man excited this year especially after our pumpkin trail at the weekend so in my wisdom I thought I would do some Halloween based activities with him over half term. Now, this sounds very Pinterest of me I know, however if you were reading my blog this time last year you will have seen my absolute fail at a Halloween craft. I am not very creative I think it is fair to say. This is where my lovely Mum comes in. She used to run a playgroup and then worked at a primary school so she… View Post

If you catch up with me regularly on here you will know that G works away so I fly solo with this parenting lark in the week. Even before I had Little Lady organisation was key.

Today is my Little Man’s 4th birthday. 4 years ago today after a long induction he came into the world, all 10lbs 6oz of him! It only really feels like yesterday and with a new baby in the house certain things really remind me of his baby days. To say I am proud of him is an understatement. Since turning 3 the change in him this past year has been amazing. There is no sign of that baby that was thrust into my arms. He is strong willed, kind, thoughtful and most of all a joy to be around. His… View Post

So as I have mentioned previously Little Man has been in nursery since he was around 10 months old for 3 days a week while I went to work. He has always loved and other than a few blips over the last 3 years things have gone fairly smoothly. As he is an October baby so doesn’t go to school till he is nearly 5 we made the decision to move him to a school nursery or preschool (I call it this to differentiate between the two but essentially it is just a different nursery) so that he could adapt… View Post
