How To Host The Ultimate Event

standard July 18, 2017 Leave a response

It’s summer – that means party season. With Short Rib’s Birthday shortly on the horizon, I have to get my planning hat on. Luckily, we’re not at the stage where nursery friends get invited to things (it’s coming soon, I know that) but this year, I can keep it small and that works well for me. It doesn’t mean it doesn’t take a lot of doing though…

It’s a great thing to be the life of the party, however, it’s even better to be the ‘hostess with the mostess,’ right? Somehow, the people born to host make these events seem like a breeze. There doesn’t seem to be any mishaps or rushed planning, and there’s absolutely no stress on their parts at all. The thing is, though, that the key secret to their success is built right into their personality. They are practically hard-wired for it. That doesn’t mean you could never hope to match them; it just means you need a bit more guidance.

It’s summer – that means one thing. You have to now figure out what you’re going to do to entertain your children for six whole weeks.

standard July 18, 2017 Leave a response

So we love technology, and clearly as the owners of an online blog, we’re pretty happy that the internet is a thing too and we are embracing it massively and encouraging our boy to do the same. But the Internet is a major bone of contention in so many families. Should we resist it any longer?

For all ages using tech appears to a big part of our lives now. Is it something that we should view as an essential part of our lives now, or is it a problem that we are so reliant on using tech, but we don’t know how to communicate with each other anymore?

Is Being A Stay At Home Parent Right For Your Family?

standard July 18, 2017 Leave a response

If you’re currently pregnant (your maybe your partner is), you are probably weighing up all the pros and cons of being a stay-at-home parent after the birth. There are many reasons why lots of people choose to quit their job so that they can become full-time mums. When I was pregnant, I’d had loved to have been a position to jack in my job and stay at home with my little one all the time, but financially that simply wasn’t viable for us. For a lot of people it is though. It drastically cuts down the costs of childcare and it will give you a lot more time to bond with your child. But is it really worth it?

There are so many portrayals of the stay-at-home parent that show it to be a really wholesome and fulfilling role and I’m sure it is, in the main. However, what people don’t show are the downsides to it. So, to try and debunk the whole myth of the stay-at-home mum (from someone who isn’t one, and couldn’t be one), here are some of the cons that you should expect to experience along with all the pros.
