Weaning Week – Competition!

It's funny, with Jack I was super keen to get him onto solids - it was almost a competition between all the other mums as to who was going to have their kitchen pebble dashed with Weetabix first. Come second baby, I was secretly hoping I'd be able to keep her on milk until she [...]

Happy Bloody Mother’s Day!

Ahhhhhh, Mother's Day... your one day out of a whole year to put your feet up, relax, and not shout at the children so much your angry vein pops out. Isn't it lovely to be so loved, and appreciated by your children and other half? All the feels... https://youtu.be/hTGH0nbpOWI    

The ‘Big Baby’ Blues

Hi, I'm Sophie and I've birthed a 10lb 10oz baby. A war story I'm now incredibly proud of, but that hasn't always been the case... As a nation we're obsessed with weight - how fat someone is, how thin someone is - how much weight we're gaining, how much weight we're not losing. It sometimes [...]

With only a pack of soggy rice cakes, an iPad with 10% battery, [...]

The After Birth

But this [...]

Peppa’s Pancakes

Happy pancake day! Officially the best day of the year. Do you have a little one who loves Peppa Pig? Want to earn some mega brownie points, or at the very least, an hour off having to watch that painfully annoying little piggy? If you want to put smiles on little faces, without putting holes [...]
