A new way of eating!

We have entered a new phase of eating where my little lady prefers to eat the sweeter stuff over dinner. I read an article that suggested that presenting your child with both main and dessert at the same time whilst strange had advantages. One being a healthy attitude to all food and another they will less likely rush dinner to eat.
I was shocked by this theory give them together! My intrigue won me over and I decided to try this new way of eating with the little one.
Did it work?
So far the result has been very good but we are only on day 3 but on day 2 only 1/2 her chocolate pudding was eaten before she chose to start on fish fingers ….this in itself suggests this may work! Continue reading


imageToday after yet another early start and a morning of a whole lot of nothing I decided that an afternoon trip to the park was in order.

Today at the park the little one headed straight for the zip-line which at 2 she really is too small, I helped her up and explained that she needed to hold on tight as I walked the zip-line so she wouldn’t fall.

She hates he swings she will happily be seated in one and before the first push she wants out so it was to my surprise when another child sat on the swing she decided that she wanted to try it….she decided that swings are good as I buttoned her coat “swing” but I know that game! isn’t it funny the difference being around others can make!

I then on the way back decided to do my own bit of exploring as a new park open last  autumn and we hadn’t yet found it let alone stopped for a play. I found it all of 2 minutes from the park we were playing in funny huh Lol!


Climbing high!

imageThis was taken the other day on one of our trips to the local park. As I watched her nimbly climb her way to the top I must say I was quite taken aback at this latest feat!I found this particularly amazing I think as this is a skill that the little one can’t practice at home as we don’t have any stairs.
It made me realize and appreciate how quickly information is absorbed, she watched as I most likely quite clumsily climbed up and she was quite fast in her ascent to the top although one there she did wobble with panic as she was now “stuck”!
She’ll be able to manage that wobbly bridge in no time as soon as she improves her balance enough so she dosn’t fall through the gaps lol

The bedtime battle!

What I want to know is what happened to the baby girl that came home from the hospital and at the age of 10 weeks started sleeping through the night every night!
We recently have transformed her cot into a bed and she was very happy with her new bed, we did our best to keep her involved in the change letting her watch as daddy took the cot apart to helping make the bed and choose her teddies!
The downside (for us) is this new found freedom to get up when one likes means getting the small one to stay in her bed is a pain and I am quite sure that 6:30 is too early to get up in the morning! image
