Monday 25th February 2013. Blood test

Picture is of little man with the magic cream working on his hand. He didn’t feel a thing when they took the blood from him. For those of you who have followed my blog for a while, you will know my little man had a stage where he kept being really ill. For anyone who does not know, we went through a stage from May 2012 to November 2012 of him being ill every other week. He was either sick or had a fever. I kept on taking him to the doctors and they told me it was normal as… View Post

Thursday 21st February 2013. New Shoes

It was only 6 weeks ago that I took little man to get some new shoes. He had gone from a size 4.5 to a 5.5. I bought him some really nice Clarks shoes which cost me £40. This is fine though as I want him to have some nice comfy shoes for his little feet. Yesterday as I was walking past the shoe shop,  I decided to pop in and get his feet measured again. Just to be on the safe side. He is growing so fast at the moment. Not for one minute did I think he would… View Post

Wednesday 20th February. And so it begins…

I have decided that now is the time to start potty training. My little man is 22 months old so I am not going to push him, just going to start off really easy on him. I decided I am going to let him walk around without his nappy on in the day when we are at home. Then every 10-15 minutes I keep asking him if he needs a wee or poo. I got the potty out and left it on the floor in the room. Little man loved it and kept sitting on it and laughing. We didn’t… View Post

Monday 18th February 2013. Tiles

It’s now been 7 months since we had our new kitchen fitted. We both absolutely love it, but there is one thing that has been making it look not as good as it should. This little thing is the fact we still have the old tiles on the wall. You probably wonder why we still have the old tiles on the wall. The reason being I am so fussy that we have not been able to agree on which ones to have,  or even find some I like. We have both finally agreed on some tiles, which I am really… View Post
