Shopping for a toddler boy
Wilkie, who turns two next week !!, is officially potty-trained. Hooray! It gives me such pleasure knowing I will never have to do that again! Five babies down.... no more to go...! Haha. (Of course there are plenty more parenting challenges to face, but potty-training thankfully isn't one of them.) Anyway, I had forgotten what ...

'Everyone Eats' by Julia Kuo, a cute book for toddlers
We've recently added the cute book, 'Everyone Eats', to Wilkie's book basket in his bedroom, and it's quickly become a bedtime favourite.  It's a cute and simple book, featuring different groups of animals on each page and the foods they eat: rabbits eat carrots, deer eat lettuce, bears eat honey, etc. Not only does Wilkie love ...

Tuesday Tips: Singing in the loo -- create a sense of safety and security
I think a lot of parents are faced with this conundrum: a public loo, two (or more) children, and no room in the loo for the children, the buggy, and all your belongings! (Or something similar.) Sometimes there is the added details of suitcases/travelling alone/sleeping baby, but whatever the situation, it is one of those ...

Wilkie's favourite books -- a round-up of the best books for toddlers
We have already shared our team's favourite baby & toddler books, which is a wonderful round-up of books for the 0-3 age, but as I was looking at Wilkie's little box of books in his bedroom, I realised there are some favourites in there that haven't been mentioned here before.  Some of them have been ...

The Corner House
The Corner House is a place to meet, eat, drink, play, shop, learn and even exercise. Located in Brook Green, next to Shepherd's Bush in West London, it is a great rainy day spot, and there is an underground labyrinth of indoor play things for toddlers and young children as well as a top floor for more ...

Indestructibles -- books for babies (and their big siblings!)
Don't you love it when your books or toys get a new lease on life? I think this is why I am drawn to quality items that last year after year and have multi purposes. And now we have realised that a book series that I loved for Beatrice has a new use I had ...

Little Dish -- sponsors of our London ShopUp event
A while ago, I was sent a cook book by the lovely Little Dish Team. Honestly, it is still one of my main go-to books for when I need inspiration for a well-balanced, easy to make meal (you know the way you sometimes get into a rut of always cooking the same thing? It happens ...

Teething -- with two sweet brands
We have a drooly, constantly sticking his hands (plural) in his mouth, six-month-old babe. He's been teething for half of his life now, and still no teeth! Poor bubba. The teething began one day after we flew overseas for the start of our summer holiday. (What timing!) But there was no denying it, teeth are on the way and we needed to comfort him ...

Tuesday Tips: how to deal with toddler tantrums?
Last week we got an email from one of our readers, asking for a post on the topic of toddler tantrums. Her two-year-old is just starting to have some bouts and tantrums and she said she's desperate for advice from fellow mums. I think this is a bit of a tricky topic, because it is so ...

Monkey and Me
This weekend I started to reorganise my girls room at bit. They have so many toys and books that they have now grown out of. I completely understand Esther's feelings in her recent post -- I do feel slightly melancholic that all of these well-loved items are being packed away. Though I fair a lot better than ...

Annabel Karmel I-Phone App
Now, here is an I-Phone app that actually makes sense and is definitely more practical than Angry Birds. Seriously, who did not panic when it came to weaning their first child? If you are anything like me you spent hours trying to figure out if you should first feed the baby broccoli or a banana. I ...

Peekaboo Farm, fun Iphone app for toddlers
Sometimes we experience moments with our kids that bring tears to our eyes. Like recently, when my 2-year-old boy bravely stepped forward to sing his St. Maarten song for the strangers in the doorway, raising his homemade lantern in his hand, trying to sing the well memorized song but barely making himself heard thanks to losing his voice to a ...

Poisson Rouge
As I have already said I have decided to let my children play with the computer.  The rule, though, is that the games have to be somewhat educational. It's not going to be me that introduces them to the "shoot-them-all" arcade type of games. So it's with great pleasure that I have discovered Poisson Rouge -- ...

Coping with toddlers
Although I've always said I wanted a big family, there have been moments lately where I have had second thoughts... Having babies is one thing, but dealing with toddlers is a whole other challenge. A friend recently told me, "I would have 10 kids if I didn't think that toddler-hood would nearly kill me 10 ...

Playground Rage
I had an instance of playground rage yesterday. (I have the feeling that the longer I am in Paris the more I am feeling the French rage as opposed to British reserve). It got me thinking: maybe the playground is the main learning ground for toddlers for how to defend themselves and maybe, by intervening, I ...

‘Comfort Zones’ is an anthology of essays written by a pool of women writers who were invited to think about their usual ‘comfort’ subject matter and then work against it. This ‘tackling of unfamiliar grounds’ results in a compelling read — according to @vanessa_wild_flours a ‘dip in and out of’ kind of book which sounds like the perfect holiday read to us!
