5 pros of returning to work after maternity leave

5 pros of returning to work after maternity leave

I recently went back to work after 13 months. Due to a short hospital stay at the end of August last year, just under a month before giving birth, I started maternity leave a couple of weeks early. I’m fortunate that I am going to be working part time for the next year or so rather than full time. However, I’m still missing Autumn like crazy!

To make myself feel better, I’ve decided to try and focus on the positives of going back to work. View Post

The NSFW side of CBeebies

The NSFW side of CBeebies

If you live in the UK have a pre-school child, chances are that you are well acquainted with CBeebies. Astonishingly, some mums (and dads) actually start to have a bit of a thing for some of the characters. Mrs Helicopter is no stranger to these feelings (don’t read if you’re faint-hearted, or weak-stomached for that matter!) While I’m absolutely certain I’ll never be one of the “tumble tarts“, (women who would actually like to get together with Mr. Tumble for some fun), you do find that your brain seems to try and find ways to make it more interesting. After all, it’s quite mundane having the same old brain-numbing thing rotated three times a day and seeing the same episodes every couple of weeks.

I’ve noticed that on occasion, things are said that sound quite dirty out of context. Sometimes it could even be misconstrued within context! I like to think that they throw these things in to keep us on our toes and see if we’re actually listening. View Post

Sunday review: Babease Stage 2

Sunday review: Babease Stage 2

I’ve been a fan of Babease for Autumn since we first started weaning her, just before she turned 6 months old. I loved how you could see the ingredients used at a glance on the back of the packet. However, it was when I met their founder, Tom Redwood at the Baby and Toddler Show a few months ago that I really became aware of who Babease were. I could see, feel and hear the passion that goes into making these products.  View Post

Halloween Baby Costumes 2017

Halloween Baby Costumes 2017

I love shopping for clothes for Autumn and there are some lovely things around this autumn. I equally love finding festive outfits for her to wear for Christmas and Halloween. They’re only little once, so I feel I’ve got to make the most of it!

While I was window shopping, I thought as we’re now only a few weeks away from Halloween why not share my top pick of this year’s costumes for babies and toddlers in supermarkets and the high street! View Post
