There comes a point in my life where I always sit and wonder where I’d be or what I would be doing if I hadn’t of had children when I did. I know that my life would have been completely different, but just how different could it be?
I love my children and I definitely wouldn’t change my life at all but there is just something deep within that makes me wonder where I’d be, or what I’d be doing.
It’s been a few weeks now that Joshua has been telling us when he needs to have a wee or a poo and he hates having a dirty nappy on so we tried him with a potty but he just wasn’t having any of it. He wouldn’t even entertain the idea and after an afternoon of being nappy-free, he cried until I had put him back in a nappy so that he could have a wee. He’s got great holding skills! But it was pretty clear that potty training wasn’t going to happen for us because Joshua just did not want to sit on the potty without a nappy on.
When we was offered the opportunity to review Toilet Train Bing I jumped to it, I knew that this would be perfect to help Joshua get on the potty and realise that it was okay to sit on the potty to have a wee on.
I realise that I’ve been away from my blog for some time, in fact blogging has been the very last thing on my mind and it’s something that I have missed, so very much.
There has been so much happening that I lost focus on all the hard work I had put into my blog and it has certainly been neglected. Although I’d prefer not to get into the details about my unexpected absence, I feel like deserved some explanation. After all, you are all a huge part of my life.
Having a child with so many different allergies, egg being the main one, it’s increasingly difficult to find snacks for him that he can have. Most things contain egg, especially in the additives. So, I started looking towards vegan products but, like gluten free products, they can get quite pricey. I was lost for ideas and I didn’t want to keep him on fruit, yogurt and rice cakes forever. I wanted him to have some variety.
That was until I came across these wafers from Kiddylicious. What a life saver they have been.
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.
