Following on from my last piece which was a list of my lotions and potions for the boys that I won’t live without. This piece gives handy parent hacks in using them to there best and getting around potential battles with the toddlers! Lets face it when it comes to parenting there’s always a battle worth avoiding 😛
You’llYou might never need them but I always have them in the press. Most of these I was totally unaware of when I had Ned and learned the usual way from other mums recommending them or running to the chemist and asking the pharmacist for advice. I put together a hamper for my best friend when she had her first baby in July and all these tinctures made an appearance. Some are not suitable until three months old and some are just for emergencies and some I still use daily with Ned in toddlerhood.
My top 10 Toys are all toys that were actually worth the purchase! Good value, hardy, stood the test of time and bar the real small baby stuff are still being played with months later. If it’s on the list it bought me time, a cuppa, maybe even a solo toilet break, hell when he was a very small baby maybe even a shower!!
She wants you to text ahead and arrange a visit on her terms at a time that suits her. Child birth and becoming a mum first time, second time, eight time is overwhelming and comes with an enormous feeling of total lack of control. So naturally being in control of when and who she spends her time with is hugely important. For me this time I’m also considering Ned and how much disruption there will be to his little life all of a sudden so that too will play a part in when and who I want calling.
Now it may seem somewhat ironic or even hypocritical of a so called blogger (I use it loosely) to be annoyed about getting unwanted opinions but in my defense I don’t hound down followers, make them follow me, read my blog and watch my stories. I’m hear if you want to ask or listen but it’s totally your choice.
Bless, you don’t quite get what that means and you think your GREAT at eight, nine months pregnant and still thropping along! You’ll literally never get this time again. People aren’t just being kind! Rest!
