The well known books will always be favourites such as “Room on the Broom” and “Stick Man”. But what about all the other books, because let’s face it, there’s a lot but not all make it to our homes and just end up making there way to the back of the shelves in the shops and never seen again. We...
doll, play, girls, boys, pink
What a Toddler knows is that he or she loves activities, whether that is role play, building, drawing or going to the play park. All can be done equally well with toys that are blue, pink, yellow, or green, but whoever said that certain colours are for a specific genders? Men wear pink and women wear blue don’t they?

The modern world of toys still baffles me, the cheap and nasty plastic crap that’s in shops is terrible, but that isn’t the only problem – it’s the price too. Far too many toys on the market now are just way over priced in my eyes. What’s even worse are the themed toys, like the ones that are based on...

A week to some dads may be enough but to me its just not enough time. A week can fly by so quick and once your back to work you miss so much! If I go back to when we were expecting Z, I was on the sick for 6 months so I got to spend those all important days...

When life was simple and all wee needed was a little 2 bed bungalow. If I rewind back a bit to give you a little background story. I bought my first house when I was only 19 years old, a little bungalow in the centre of a old pit village, It really was a perfect house for us, and a brilliant...

Tips on how best do it can be quite difficult as every child is different but I remember just always having the potty out for my son to...
  I cried, I was feeling low, I told myself this is it, its time to say goodbye. I can’t take feeling like this anymore. The devil inside kept telling me they would be better without you, you serve no purpose in this life. My head was like a thunderstorm, lots of black clouds, thunder, lightening and the dark thoughts...
Money management is very important, we learn from our parents behaviours and if we constantly think money grows on trees then we will never learn and think it is ok to spend spend spend. As a child I was always taught by my Grandad to spend half and save half. I think he first opened a post office savings account...
