I’m the Mum to a 17 month old and as such I’m always looking for ways to keep her entertained. Daisy is seemingly quite intelligent so far and I like to try and make sure that we have a wide variety of rainy day activities for 1 year olds.
Daisy turned 2 back in March 2018. For a while we weren’t worried about potty training, as Daisy didn’t seem ready, however, she is beginning to show the normal signs of being ready for potty training. We’re not going to be running in and forcing Daisy before she is ready, but we are wanting to support her in getting used to what potty training entails. Summer Infant has sent us the My Size Potty, to help Daisy on her potty training journey, and here are our thoughts on it.
Our daughter Daisy has a LOT of allergies, thanks to a condition called FPIES. This means that dining out has become fraught with anxiety and stress. Daisy often wants to eat what we are eating, and can’t, and there are next to no restaurants that can cater to her needs. Also, cross-contamination is an ongoing concern too. We’ve recently been sent the Flippa Dining Booster, from Apramo, and have been testing it out eating in the garden with our family.
We’ve just returned from another week at Centerparcs. We never really get tired of visiting but as Daisy grows we are always looking for new ways to keep her happy on holiday. Keeping children happy on holiday might seem like an easy task before you head off. It isn’t unreasonable to assume that your children will be happy on holiday, what with undivided attention, swimming, activities and much more, however, you’ll probably be wrong! Anyway, these are my preferred ways of keeping Daisy happy on holiday!
Soft toys… they are the things that memories are made of right?! At least in this house. I personally don’t have any soft toys from my childhood, which makes me upset. I do however have some lovely soft toys from more recent periods in my life. When my daughter was born, my First Mother’s Day as a pregnant Mum and other lovely occasions. For my husband, he has quite a few soft toys and other items from his childhood, which is lovely. Recently Thomas came home from his parents and he was beaming, and carrying a Mr Bean toy from when he was growing up. This was so cute and we had a nice chat about different memories and soft toys we have had over the years. Our lovely daughter Daisy has recently received some new soft toys and I’m writing this post to show them off to you today.
Daisy slept without a soft toy in the hospital but as soon as we were home she had supervised naps with a soft toy that I had been sleeping with. This helped Daisy to feel comforted and meant that she had my smell near her too.
