It's always a proud mom moment when the creche supervisor tells you, your little one hit another child, as I hang my head in shame. She did reassure me though that all of the toddlers are doing the same thing. It's all about testing boundaries apparently! Poor mum has been the subject of these incidents … Continue reading More discipline issues
I was feeling quite smug about the terrible 2's as I felt I was getting away with something horrendous. It turns Isobel was just saving up some bad behaviour so she could hit me with it all in one week! She has been moody, irritating, irrational and just plain grumpy. OK I know she is … Continue reading Terrible 2’s and Tantrums
Isobel seems to be going through some real developmental changes lately and nothing works but mommy huggies. We had a big long cuddle this morning before we left for creche, as she gets a little confused when Monday's come around and the routine starts again. She doesn't want to leave mama so I had to … Continue reading Mommy huggies
I cannot believe it is 2 years since I started writing about my journey with Isobel and all the changes I've seen since Here's a recap to my first blog. Thanks for all the comments, feedback, advice and follows. Love Isobel & Mommy
I think from 20 months to 3 years must be the most frustrating time for parents and toddlers. They know what they want to say but we as parents have to try and decipher their code.

Well there has been a lot of change going on, since we went through potty training in July, which feels like a lifetime ago now. During lockdown … Continue reading The next chapter..
These were the words from my little girl this morning when she first got up and the first time she has said them. I really hope she is happy, happy! To be fair she is living her best life, spending unlimited time with mom and dad every day. Daily walks to the park for a … Continue reading Happy happy happy…
One more time, I'm likely to go flipping mad! I bought a musical book and CD for Isobel months ago and since we have been in lockdown, it gets played at least once a day. Like all of us with our favourite tunes, Isobel has her token favs which I can now switch too without … Continue reading If I hear the wheels on the bus…
I celebrated Valentines Day last weekend by meeting up with my NCT group for dinner. As per our usual coversations we caught up about all the things are little ones are now into. But on a deeper level we talked about the difference in raising boys and girls. We have roughly an even mix of … Continue reading Who are we rearing?
Just as you think you have settled into a great evening routine, another bout of sleep regression drags you back into reality of toddlerdom! We are about 2 weeks into this phase now and at first I thought it was illness as Isobel is recovering from a bad ear infection. She seems to be also … Continue reading Sleep regression -we meet again
