Thumbs up for Summer

Well done to everyone who wore their Thumbsie® in all the hot weather we have been having.  It has been a lovely end to the School holidays, but possibly a bit warm for a lot of thumb suckers in some parts of the UK.

Tips for establishing a bedtime routine

It’s Friday night, there is a gin and tonic with your name on it in the kitchen, you can hear the bubbles popping and the ice melting.  Only one thing stands between you and that gin, your reward for bargaining with, cleaning up after, feeding, entertaining and educating your child all week - and that is getting that child to[...]

A Fairy Outfit and Wellies

Children, in my experience, have a very strong opinion about what they will and won’t wear.  On a January day trip to a local bird sanctuary, my daughter, who was 2 at the time, insisted on wearing her fairy outfit on top of her duffle coat, and twinned it (as that fashion cliché goes) with her wellies and a wand. [...]
