Mums & Tots Round-up: Dealing with a fussy eater

I recently learned a really interesting fact about toddlers and their sudden aversion to certain foods. Apparently it all comes down to an innate behaviour from our ancestors, when young children would roam free in the woods. As we will all know, toddlers love nothing more than to put just about anything in their mouths, so […]

Mums & Tots Round-up: All about birthdays

This month sees my littlest girl turn 3! I cant even find the word to describe the mixture of love, happiness and pure heart ache that this brings. But it got me to thinking about birthdays and how we celebrate? We are more a ‘low key tea party and cake’ type of family. Although we […]
