toddler eating birthday tea

N’s not had a birthday party yet.  Well a proper one.  He just had his cousin round for tea and a play.  My intention is to hold his 3rd birthday party once the weather’s improved and I can turf all the kids outside to play in the garden, and they can have a picnic. But we’ve […] Read more…

When to let go (or not) at soft play

Softplay toddler

I think we’ve been to our last birthday party for a few weeks. The last one was interesting with N to say the least.  It was held at a soft play that we’ve not been to since he was probably under 1.   It was always more pricy than another larger soft play in our town, […] Read more…

Review: 360, Milton Keynes

| Days out, Reviews

Yesterday N and I went to 360 in Milton Keynes for a meet up with some friends.  We don’t get to see them very often, what with work and family, so we like to make the most of it so the 3 boys can catch up and have a good run around together.  Plus I’d […] Read more…

Toddler friends

| Days out, Observations

Being 2 seems to be the start of having friends.  Before N’s been happy to tag around after his old cousins, and vaguely do activities at nursery alongside other children, but it’s great to see him really connecting with other children. What amazes me is how quickly children get used to being with others.  It’s […] Read more…

Boys and doors

| Days out, Observations

Met up with a friend and her son today for a morning at ‘Baby Bounce’ and for a spot of lunch.  The boys are only 5 months apart, but don’t see each other that frequently, so it was funny to see them get used to each other again. Baby Bounce is in the leisure centre. […] Read more…

Big kids soft play

climbing at soft play

Today we joined one of N’s friends at a soft play place in town for her 2nd birthday.  N’s never really that fussed about soft play.  He tends to head straight for the things he has at home or are just toys on the ground as such (Little Tikes houses, hoovers, trikes, rocker etc).  Although […] Read more…

Child magnet / Pied Piper

| Days out, Observations

As my tagline says, I’m not really a child person.  Strange I hear you ask, given I have one, however it’s very different with children in your family and those you see frequently, seeing them grow up. But bizarrely children seem to be like cats…they always go to people who aren’t keen on them. Whenever […] Read more…

Nursery parent’s morning

| Milestones

We had N’s second parent’s evening morning the other day at nursery.  While we get a daily write up of what he’s been up to in his book, I love going in to find out in more detail how he’s getting on, checking out the photos they’ve taken and working out what we need to […] Read more…

Confident climber

| Days out, Milestones

The last time we went to soft play we had a result….whoop, the first time he clambered up the steps, through the tunnel and down the slide all by himself.  All very exciting for me.  It means I don’t have to drag myself round it any longer. Although he also decided he wanted to follow […] Read more…

National Forest Adventure Farm

| Reviews

Seems like ages ago now, but around the Easter holidays we’d been quite busy meeting up with various online mum & baby friends.  The last occasion was a trip to The Forest Adventure Park at Tatenhill, nr Burton.  A friend goes regularly, and it did live up to expectations even though the day was a […] Read more…
