The Tea and Cake | Edition No. 12

Well this week we embarked upon our potty training journey and sufficed to say, it’s been interesting. Anyway let’s not dwell. We’re looking forward to a pretty laid back weekend with one party on Saturday afternoon, otherwise we won’t be venturing too far from our house, potty and a wide variety of accessories to help clean up!! If you’re here for the first time then all you need to know…

Why Potty Training a Toddler is Like An Episode of Dexter

Why Potty Training a Toddler is Like An Episode of Dexter

Dexter Morgan of the wonderful series Dexter (well wonderful until the last couple of seasons which I’d truly rather pretend never happened) lives by a code – the Harry code. (Oh and sidenote – if you’re not familiar with the show, Dexter kills people – but only the bad ones , so its ok. Harry was his adopted dad who taught him to kill only the bad people, but to…

The Friend Failing

The Friend Failing

Due to the working schedule I used to have and still do in some part, as well as not having a driving licence,  it means I am rarely doing drop off and pick up on the nursery run. I do not know the other mums and I only know a snippet of the names of the other kids Harrison plays with. When I was pregnant, we were offered Hypnobirthing classes…

March 15 | Papery Peep

I can’t help but worry, as I look at my last month of papery loveliness, that I am slipping back into post-H habits of not making enough time for reading. I think all us mums have a hard time finding all the time for all the things we love. So I really want to try harder to read and make time for my first love. So back to the subject…

Smiggle UK Launch

We were very excited in the Potty Mouthed household to hear that Smiggle have now opened their UK site. Any new opportunities to purchase stationery are greeted warmly here (except by my husband who frets at my current account balance…) H was particularly delighted with the haul of Smiggle products we were sent to review. I have most definitely passed on my love of stationery and writing to my little…

Master of the Universe

Master of the Universe

There was always a plan in my mind, which formulated very early on, when I was a wee girl of about 11. With my head barely poking out the top of my Judy Blume, Famous Five and Point Horror books. I was going to University, no matter what. I would become a successful career woman. And become master of the universe. I had it all figured out and you know what,…

Forever Bespoke | Personalised Children’s Name Frame

When it comes to adding decorative touches to H’s room, I have always been eager to find to source items which are unique and also represent the feel of his room. His previous nursery was tones of mocha and cream and his current room has darker tones of brown. Often decorative sets for kids rooms seem to come in the standard prescribed colours (pink for girls, blue for boys –…

{The Ordinary Moments 15} #12 | Letting Go

I promise that this post will in no way be making reference to a well-known Disney blockbuster and most especially a very catchy song we all think of when someone says the words “Let It Go”. So moving on quickly….. I have never been very good at going to soft play, parks and children-heavy areas with H. I am prone to over-protectiveness, I cannot deny it. I get a bit panicked each…
