Only Mum's of Boys Will Understand


A couple of years ago we received a gift for our oldest boy Tommy, they apologised, saying they mistakenly got the "girls version", in other words it was pink. I think I nervously laughed and said it was fine. Really what difference does it make? Tommy didn't mind and still to this day will sometimes play with it and now our youngest boy Fraser plays with it too. Gender is just a thing as adults we put on children. Tommy has both a tool bench and play kitchen, he likes them both equally. One shouldn't be seen as a girls toy and the other as a boys toy, they are just toys.

Giving Your Kids The Best Night's Sleep They've Ever Had

You’ve given them some warm milk, you made sure their dinner wasn’t too early or too late, and you’ve read them all a story to get them into the bedtime mood. But still, they get up from their covers repeatedly, and you’re at your wit’s end.

Eventually they’ll go to sleep, of course, but being able to wait for that moment as a slightly exhausted parent is a struggle. So we need to make sure your children’s rooms, and their beds in particular, are perfect for getting an easy and comfortable good night’s rest! If you make the experience more friendly and your kids won’t have any trouble getting used to a sleep schedule.

How To Cope When Sick As A Stay At Home Mum

When you think about how life will be as a Mum and in particular as a stay at home mum, you think of looking after your babies every needs, trips to the park and maybe a few other unpleasant tasks that are just part of being a parent. What you don't think about, is what will happen if you get poorly. I've been both a working mum and now a stay at home mum and although both have their challenges, being with your kids 24/7 is not easy, especially when you're not really up to the challenge. There's no days off for sickness, no special treatment, you just need to get on with it.
