Let Socks Be… Socks?!

Most folk are aware of the ” Let Clothes Be Clothes” movement, which encourages retailers to not label clothes by gender and instead allow children to choose for themselves. There’s also the sister movement – “Let Toys Be Toys”. I’ve found a lot of retailers are great now for not labelling things. There’s a whole other battle to get on with, but for the most part retailers are starting to listen or at least try to understand a little.

Imagine my suprise when I saw this on Facebook from a user named Elle…

Learning To Be A Curly Girl…

There comes a time where you have to step up and learn about something because one day your daughter will want to know.

Those who know me, know how many problems I have with my curly hair. I HATE my curls. They’re frizzy, gross and I just can’t do anything with them. They spend much of their life tied back in a ponytail. I used to straighten occasionally but I’ve given that up now as well. Straightening with a toddler? Yeah, ok. That sounds like a laugh… Continue reading

REVIEW – Cuddleroar Toddler Towel

We are big Cuddledry fans in this house, and have been since we bought Eden’s first Cuddledry apron towel when Eden was about six months old. You can find my review of the apron towel here. When Cuddledry contacted us to try one of their toddler towels I could not say yes fast enough, especially as Eden is fast outgrowing her apron towel.

Some people (like the mayor of London… ahem!) seem to think that living in a place like London means that you should expect terror attacks. Needless to say, I do think there’s a certain amount of vigilance that comes from living in the capital city – like any big city I guess. But underneath the hard exterior and the vigilance, for most people there is a deep love of their city and a deep sense of protection. Continue reading

Normal is Boring 

Isn’t it funny how you can see polar opposite things in the same few hours?

On my way home from work today I saw this in a local book stores “Mother’s Day”  window display. Excuse my rubbish overexcited attempt at photography. Continue reading

When Eden Met Eden…

You know the days that make a difference? Where, just for that day, everything is ok? Last Saturday was one of those days.

We went to The Baby Show at Excel in the morning. It was good fun and Eden had the BEST time playing, walking around and collecting as many balloons as she could get her hands on. We also ran into the lovely Naomi from ‘Not A Perfect Parent’ and her other half and adorable little Lola. Eden had a lovely time playing on the ride on toys from Peg Perego and just genuinely being the happy little girl that she is. More on that in a seperate review post. Continue reading
