Thanet needs more things to do for children under 5yo 

Last Thursday, Emily and I met up with Clare and her daughter Scarlet. Being half term the opportunities to do anything with our girls in the rain was limited and we bravely thought taking our little ones to the Bumble Bees soft play area would mean that parents would avoid it because it was half…

Park rant: children’s play areas

Okay so I’ve got something I need to rant about, I know I know not another rant, I seem to be pushing a few of these out every few weeks, but here me out because there is a point to it, I promise! My problem is why do teenagers feel the need to take over…

Just a little rant…. 

There are some things that I just don’t get other parents doing. Am I being a snob to disagree? But there are just some things that some parents do that are just not ok. I have to get it off my chest after seeing it happen for the third time in less than a week….

Do you really need to call your child Apple to be different? 

Choosing a baby name can be tricky and sometimes there’s a lot of pressure when doing so too. This name will be your child’s name for their whole life, and it’s daunting. Ask anyone who’s been a parent and they’ll agree. When I found out I was pregnant I was convinced I was expecting a…

Do you really need an etiquette guide for your child? 

Do young children really give a damn whether they’re making a good impression? Posh advert-ridden magazine Tatler has produced a really rather bizarre guide to help parents raise a posh tot with impeccable manners. The guide actually called “The Tatler Guide to Toddler Etiquite”, provides top tips for parents who want to raise the perfect…

Parents and Volume Control, when do you step in?

I need to rant…  So this has been plaguing my mind for months, actually since I moved here and it’s always been a constant question as to whether I should write about it or just leave it. My problem here is a neighbours inability to control her volume on a daily basis. I’ve asked on…

The super slim diet- a kinda review 

Throughout the past 8 months losing weight has been at the forefront of my mind. I need to lose weight, even though there really hasn’t been much of a rush apart from our oncoming holiday in September, besides that Sam says I don’t need to rush and well, I don’t but society, the press and…

This past week…

This week has been mad. Along with the usual work stuff, a bit of babysitting Emily’s cousinin Maidstone, Emily has been in a pretty crappy mood and I’ve not been that far behind either. She’s not only teething and suffering from the never-ending growing pains, she’s also really agitated and frustrated that she can’t crawl….

Why do parents feel the need to make their children look like adults? 

Children should always be that, children. Not made into mini versions of their parents by wearing ridiculous outfits, make up and whatnot. Take glamour model and born-to-shock Katie Price who used to flaunt her oversized knockers in men’s mags under the name ‘Jordan,’ now mother to 6 children by 3 different fathers, is repeatedly in…
