Discipline and the Super Nanny!

Discipline? How do you do it?

Do you have hard and fast rules? Do you have consistency? Do you follow through on every threat? Do you feel bad if you don’t?

Or are you like us? Just winging it.

What's mine is yours..... kind of...


When you get married, or actually, enter into any kind partnership, romantic or even business, you make an agreement. This isn't a typed out on paper, signed sealed and delivered kind of agreement. This is an underlying, unsaid, code of conduct.

School, Spellings and Me!

There are a lot of situations you find yourself in, as a mother, that you never really thought about when you decided to have a baby.

Like the 4am wake ups to find missing bogeys, or letting them eat floor food just to avoid a tantrum.

That kind of thing.

Phone Shaming

Phones..... we have entered the age where we simply CANNOT live without them. There is nothing a phone can't do.

You can Grocery Shop, book a holiday, order a Pizza, find out the name of that song that's been bugging you for the last 20 minutes, diagnose yourself with a number of rare and tropical diseases, get directions to the nearest soft play hell zone, phone a friend, send a message in endless different ways, watch a film, take a photo, shoot a video, and of course, access the wonderful black hole that is social media!   *sound of a trumpet*

Phones can give us SO much, and yet, their use is starting to be 'frowned upon'.
