Continuing Potty Training And Toddler L’s Week 7 Update

Over the last few weeks, our potty training journey has continued to chug along. Toddler L has come a long way since those first tentative forays onto the potty. We’re not fully toilet trained yet, but I can see the light at the end of the potty training tunnel. The title probably gave it away, […]

Getting Ready For Toddler L’s 3rd Birthday

And just like *that*, it’s Toddler L’s 3rd birthday. During the early hours of Friday morning, it will have been 1,097 days, 26,328 hours, 1,579,680 minutes or 94,780,800 seconds (depending on your time measurement of choice) since she disembarked the mothership. I’m not quite sure where that time has gone – I can still remember so […]

Deciding What To Do With Toddler L’s Crap Artwork

Parenting is all about making difficult choices. Some of these are pretty critical to the future of your kid – do they go to private nursery or the nursery at school, for instance. Other decisions may not appear as important, but they still have the capacity to screw your kid up for good. Take my […]

Starting Potty Training & Toddler L’s Week 1 Update

Back in May, I wrote a post about how Toddler L wasn’t yet potty about toilet training – I know, genius title, you don’t need to lavish me with praise. Well, fast forward two short months, and she’s now not only ready for potty training, but is actually already a week into her journey. In a […]

The Negatives Of Technology When Parenting In The Digital Age

The other day, I wrote a post about how I think technology can help when it comes to parenting. You can have a full read of the post here, but for those too lazy to click, I basically said that you have loads of information at your fingertips, it helps give you ideas (recipes, messy […]

Having A Kickabout With The SSE Wildcats Girls’ Football Team

Never has women’s football been so popular. The FA Women’s Super League continues to go from strength to strength, England’s women are putting the men to shame on the internationals stage and the stars of the women’s game – Karen Carney, Toni Duggan, Ellen White, Fara Williams etc – are increasingly high profile. As a […]

The Positives Of Technology When Parenting In The Digital Age

I was watching Terminator Genisys the other day and it got me thinking about how much we use technology in our daily lives as parents. I don’t want to give the story away, but in this particular film, we learn that Genisys – which later becomes AI system Skynet – is a global operating system designed to […]

Looking Back On Our First Family Trip With A Baby To The Seaside

The other day, I was attempting to organise our photos. At the start of the year, I had a disaster and lost loads of our digital data – I dropped my laptop when playing with Toddler L and subsequently broke the hard drive. Bugger. To make things worse, when I went to get a backup […]

We’re Konfidence Child Swimologists (Plus Win £50 Swimwear Voucher)

One of the things I most look forward to each week is our swimming classes. We’ve been frolicking in the pool for just over two years now and it’s something both Toddler L and I really enjoy. Seeing how much she’s developed during this time is pretty incredible. As much as I’d like to, I […]
