The struggle is real- The return to school

The struggle is real- The return to school

Wow! Can you believe the countdown to half term already on the go? It feels like it was only two minutes since I was taking that 'first day' pic! I was wondering how many of our little ones have found the return to school particularly tough this time after an especially long summer holiday and covid restrictions changing the school day norm? I cam across this blog on the mumsnet site and thought it had some amazing advice for any parents with young ones who are refusing to go to school ❤️ https://www.mumsnet.com/children/refusing-to-go-to-school

The 'New Normal'

The 'New Normal'

So, I am sat at my desk today struggling with the fact that it is a Wednesday (I was convinced all of yesterday that it was Sunday) wondering how long I will be suffering with this new case of ‘baby brain’… The girls are back at nursery now four days a week, Isabel is in the last stretch before she starts school and Florence turns three this Friday and I think it is making me feel a little reflective on how things have changed over these last seventeen weeks and what we are taking with us into the ‘new normal’....

Why Choose a Lap Pad?

Why Choose a Lap Pad?

So we are all familiar now with the weighted blanket and the positive affect it can have on our children’s sleep (and how when they sleep we sleep!). But what about children who need that extra level of comfort away from their bed? This is when a weighted lap pad gets to shine! I like to think of ours as mini snoozzzy blankets- they are filled with exactly the same non toxic microbeads and give the user the same sensory regulation through deep pressure touch. Weighted lap pads are particularly helpful for people with sensory processing disorder, attentional difficulties, and...
