Traveling during the holiday season sounds like a marvelous idea, that is, until you actually start packing and organising everything. Then it becomes a true mess. The traffic is jammed and the airports are crowded with all the other people who came up with the same idea as you. If you factor a newborn into that equation, the situation will become even crazier, and before you know it, you’ll wish you’d never left your home in the first place. Still, if you organise everything perfectly and if you know what to expect, this may end up being your best vacation yet.
I know that this is one that has been done before by plenty of other parent bloggers, but I’m sure we all have our own take on it. After all, everyone parents differently and what matters to some is completely irrelevant to others. So this is my stamp on it, it’s also my chance to pull out some of the baby pictures of my three darlings and remind myself of those teeny tiny, wrinkly newborns.
Ever since weaning age, Keira has always proved herself to be challenging when it comes to food but I wasn’t aware just how much of a fussy eater she was going to be. From around 11 months old she had already made me aware of what she liked and disliked, or maybe it was just what she wanted to eat and what she didn’t.
I have always been able to count on one hand the foods that she will eat, yep there really isn’t many, and it has been such a stress getting her to eat something new or something that she “didn’t like”. Meal times have been so stressful and most of the time they end up in tears from us both. I never thought that trying to get your child to eat could be so draining, mentally and physically.
You can search the internet and find many excellent articles on why your child should attend preschool which can provide you with plenty of helpful information. If you want to give your child the very best that you possibly can, you should look to have them attend preschool as soon as they can do so. By introducing them to this learning environment from a young age, there are benefits that your child could take into their adult years, creating great habits that can last a lifetime.
It’s just 6 weeks until Joshua’s 2nd birthday and I have done nothing to contribute to it, not even bought a present. To be honest, Joshua’s 2nd birthday really has snuck up on me. I am totally not ready for Joshua to turn 2. Anyway, I am finally making a start on organising things, starting with the invitations for his little party. I absolutely suck at sending out invites in the post and I hate having to buy stamps to send letters. So when I was approached by Paperless Post to use their services, I was delighted. I couldn’t wait to dive in.
