Seven Seas Omega-3 Experiment: Final Results

Earlier this year, I wrote about the first stage of an experiment we were taking part in with Seven Seas. This involved having our bloods analysed to find out the fatty acid composition, with particular emphasis on the omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) within the body’s red blood cells. We got some really interesting results […]

Childhood Memories, Music And Car Journeys

It’s funny the things you remember from your childhood. For me, I have so many memories of trips in the car. I can’t remember specifics as everything has merged into a mangled mess, but being in the car is something that comes to mind when I think back to being a nipper. There’s a distinction […]

Review: My Little Pony The Movie Seashell Lagoon Playset & Canterlot Castle Playset

As Toddler L gets older, she – and I – are discovering new children’s TV shows to watch. Something we’ve dabbled in over the last few months is My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, which we watch on Netflix. This was sparked by my folks who bought her a Princess Cadence toy for her birthday. Obviously […]

10 Signs You’re Obsessed With A Children’s TV Show (The Wiggles, In My Case)

I’ve got something to confess. I really like The Wiggles. Like, really really like them. I think it’s bordering on obsession. I have a problem. Up until a few weeks ago, I didn’t even know the kid-friendly, Australian ‘family’ existed. However, having recently discovered them on Netflix – with Toddler L, might I add – […]

Water Confidence Outside Of Toddler Swimming Lessons

I’m a huge advocate of encouraging your kids to love – or at least not fear – the water from an early age. I guess that’s hardly surprising as someone who has done swimming lessons with their kid for the best part of 2.5 years. For me, knowing that Toddler L is confident, happy and […]

Having A Toddler Who’s A Fussy Eater

We all know that we should eat a healthy, balanced diet. Let’s be honest though, how many of us actually do that? It’s all well and good being told that you should eat 10 portions of fruit and veg per day, but it’s another thing actually doing it. Life isn’t as simple as saying “we must […]

Crap, We’ve Hit The ‘Isn’t Poo Great’ Toddler Phase!

Being a parent is all about successfully navigating your kid through various phases and stages in their development. As a once naive dad, I assumed that these phases were pretty simple – your child learns to roll over, crawl, walk and talk, then they leave home at 18 years old (16 if you’re lucky). The […]

Review: A Family Visit To Crieff Hydro And Action Glen, Perthshire

Earlier in the summer, I received an email from a place called Crieff Hydro asking us if we wanted to come and visit. The place looked incredible and I instantly wanted to say “yes”, but having seen that it was 450 miles away up in Perthshire, it didn’t seem likely that it’d happen. If only […]
