To everyone that told me I should put my baby down. To the people that told me that I cuddled him too much. To the ones that said I'm making a rod for my back. To the relatives that said he should sleep on his own. To those that said he would grow up to be clingy. To the friends that said he would never learn to be independent. And that he would never want to leave my side.

You were all wrong.

How are your summer holidays going? Keeping busy and enjoying the sunshine I hope? I've been trying to keep my three children entertained by having a loose plan for the summer break with a list of ideas that we are working our way through. One of them is taking part in Save the Children's Den Day!

I have always had a preference for natural beauty products and recently I have been making more of an effort to make conscientious decisions about what to buy for myself and my family. Weleda have been making "clean beauty" products since 1921, factoring in not only natural ingredients but thinking about sustainability and the environment too. With Cleaner Beauty becoming a bit of a trendy term for 2018, the brand want to make it clear what it means to them.

I meant to post this review months ago so huge apologies if you've been waiting to read it! I wrote it back when Essie was six months old, but do you remember we had that choking incident? I struggled for a long time after that and life felt very surreal. And it seems I just forgot to hit publish! I have been having a good sort out of my laptop files today and came across it sitting there, waiting to go live. Big oops! So here it finally is: my review of one of my absolute favourite baby nursery products, the Sleepyhead Deluxe Baby Pod!

Am I in my children's good books or what! I surprised them one day after school with a box full of the brand-new season three Hatchimals CollEGGtibles. These are adorable little toy creatures that come in small, speckled eggs. Like the larger Hatchimals Surprise Eggs, they need their owners help to hatch. We were sent a selection from the new season to review, which has resulted two VERY happy little boys!

Do you know, I still can't believe that Essie is a year old. And I certainly haven't got my head around calling her a toddler yet. Just how much longer do you think I can get away with calling her my baby? She looks so grown up now, there's no denying that, especially when you see her walking around, chatting away, getting into mischief. Oh, so much mischief!
