I've had a few comments lately from people who were surprised when I mentioned taking Billy to a restaurant or cafe. It got me thinking about the things that stop people, and some of the tips and tricks that make it as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. As a family we probably eat out once [...]

I'm always on the look out for new and interesting foods to introduce Billy to. I love batch-cooking recipes and storing some of the portions in the freezer. It feels really good knowing what he is eating and knowing exactly what ingredients have gone in to the dish. I'm going to be sharing as many [...]

Feed The Family

I'm on a quest to shake things up in the kitchen. I said in this post that I had come to the realization that I was starting to make the same dinners over and over again. I was putting little thought in to my menu planning and now I want that to change. Of course [...]

The dreaded cough is back. I could have actually (and may have) cried when I heard it coming back on little Billy this week. His eyes were red, his nose was dripping, he was sneezing and coughing every five minutes and he was bloody miserable. How could my little sweetheart be sick AGAIN? Our little [...]

When I Am A Mother I Will Never…

Never say never right? I found myself being really amused today thinking about the various things that I said that I would never do when I had a baby. Some were years ago, some were when I was pregnant, and some were even in the early days of Billy's newborn life. I think I would actually [...]

Billy is 6 months as of the 9th December. That means it's my 6 month anniversary with Motherhood. In some ways it feels like I've always been a mother and in other ways it seems like just yesterday that he was placed on my chest and I uttered my first words to my son, "oh [...]

A Day In The Life

I was inspired by a post over at the lovely Love Little Poppins Blog today. She did a lovely post which described a day in the life of her little family. She too has a beautiful little baby, so I found it really interesting cross referencing our little routines. Maybe this is of no interest [...]

So let's talk about weaning shall we? WEANING! Really? I cannot believe I'm uttering these words. When did my little tiny squishy newborn start needing more than breast milk? I need a pause button. Sob.He eats now. Food. The real type. You know, the stuff you have to buy and cook and stuff? He's a [...]
