I noticed cradle cap on Oscar’s head just a few weeks after he was born. It wasn’t very pleasant looking but after googling cradle cap images, I realized that his wasn’t that severe after all. Weeks went by that I didn’t actively try to get rid of it, but during bath time I would shampoo and rinse his […]Read More Tried & Tested – Coconut Oil for Cradle Cap.
My husband and I aren’t the kind of couple that shower each other with gifts for no reason. We’re the special occasions kind of couple – birthday’s, Christmas, Fathers Day and Mothers Day, that sort of thing. I would class giving birth, a special occasion too though! I had experienced quite a difficult pregnancy and as most of us know, giving […]Read More Push Presents – Just how popular are they?
I love shopping and I love my little town of New Ross, so I figured compiling a list of gorgeous gifts from independent retailers was a good idea (if I do say so myself) 😉 We’re all quick to buy online and travel afar to shop but I love browsing around and having a look at what’s […]Read More My Christmas Gift Guide from Shops in New Ross.
Olivia and I were thrilled to have received a Lottie Doll & Biscuits the Beagle dog to review over the Summer. She was grinning from ear to ear when a package arrived in the post that was just for her and when she saw her new Forest Friend Lottie and Biscuits the Beagle dog in real life, she couldn’t wait to start playing […]Read More Review – Forest Friend Lottie Doll
I had this lovely idea recently that I would bring Olivia to my 28 week antenatal appointment. Her dad couldn’t get off work for it so it was the perfect opportunity to have a mummy/daughter afternoon and include her in even more of this pregnancy. She’s a typical girl – sweet and maternal and extremely […]Read More Note to self.
I didn’t know when I would be sitting down writing this post. Just a few weeks ago I couldn’t see and end to how miserable I was feeling. I would cry easily just out of pure frustration. There was a bad aura in our house because of it all and my husband was feeling crappy […]Read More My Hyperemesis Gravidarum Update
I’m delighted to announce that I am pregnant with our second child. Olivia is thrilled to be becoming a Big Sister as you can see by the photo. But to be honest up until now, there hadn’t been much excitement as I’ve been suffering with the devil of all morning sickness – Hyperemesis Gravidarum. Surprisingly […]Read More Pregnancy announcement & Hyperemesis Gravidarum
Olivia is in her twelfth week of play-school, twelfth! I don’t know where those twelve weeks have gone, but as the saying goes “time flies when you’re having fun”! And my God is she having fun. Play-school has never been a daunting thought or experience for Olivia since we first mentioned those words at the beginning of Summer. […]Read More The Kid Is Alright.
A honeymoon is the traditional holiday taken by newlyweds to celebrate their marriage in intimacy and seclusion. (Wikipedia) And normally without children too! So why did I feel nothing but guilt when we left our three year old behind? Last month we spent eight nights away from our little girl. The longest we’d ever been apart in all […]Read More Our Childfree Honeymoon.
In our house Olivia’s dad is the “techy” one. I haven’t had much interest in downloading apps or playing computer games at all. But the times we’re in now most kids are drawn to computers, iPads and phones so having appropriate apps and games for them is quite important (in their little eyes anyway) And […]Read More Review – Kidloland App.
