Travelling Parents – Globetrotting with Children

Travelling Parents – Globetrotting with Children

Hundreds if not thousands of people a year opt to give up their lives and travel around the cities or even the world. But you may be surprised to learn that a lot of these people are parents that take their child along for the ride and whilst many people may question their choices it seems to work for them.

Some people opt to buy a property in a city like London to visit every now and then to give them a definite home between travelling but others opt to travel the world with little to no stable home. However, as already said it works for them and is often suggested to be a far better life for a child than simply staying in one place. But with two very different options what do they offer?

Progressing swimmingly with Puddle Ducks!

Progressing swimmingly with Puddle Ducks!

A couple of months have passed since my last update on Autumn’s toddler swimming lessons with Puddle Ducks. She’s had lessons (with a break in the middle) since she was a three month old baby and she’s now 17 months. Over the last few weeks, though, I have really noticed her skills developing quickly. It’s amazing to see! View Post

Creating my own adults-only escape

Creating my own adults-only escape

It can be difficult being a parent sometimes, for many reasons. One problem is the lack of privacy and another is the inability to have nice things without them getting ruined.

Sarah over at Boo, Roo and Tigger Too is asking bloggers to create an adult’s-only hideaway. I thought I’d  take on the challenge and visualise a little piece of paradise where I could take time out to relax and maybe even have a hot cup of tea! As much as we love Autumn, it’d be lovely to have a place just for us where we could escape to without being surrounded by randomly strewn toys and other general baby/toddler stuff. View Post

Autumn’s favourite books, autumn 2017

Autumn’s favourite books, autumn 2017

It’s been absolutely ages since I last wrote about Autumn’s favourite books. She still absolutely adores books, so much so that a few months ago I bought a small bookshelf for our living room. As it’s at such a low height, she can get her books herself and look through them independently or ask us to read them. Although her vocabulary obviously doesn’t extend that far, being 13 months old, she waves the book at one of us and makes a noise! Although she looks at all of them, she has some definite favourites at the moment. View Post
