Great … Continue reading Review- Positive Wellbeing Zine for mums, issue 2, By Isabella & Us
As a mummy of 3 (including the dog) I was delighted to read this new story book from Zara Dogdog We've not yet done the 'school run' ourselves but when September comes and we can hopefully walk to school, I plan to take our crazy Spaniel with us so this book seemed quite appropriate.

I now have a 4 year old and an 18 month old and it has come to my attention there are many things I did with my first that I haven't done with my second. Obviously we all parent differently.

There is absolutely no shame in it. I couldn't breast feed either of mine. Alana was Breast fed for 3 weeks with lots of … Continue reading ‘Breast is best’ if it suits you!
I wanted to write this post for anyone contemplating getting a dog when you already have children. We actually got our dog (Dudley) just as I'd fallen pregnant with my first child. He's a complete nutter Sprocker Spaniel which is a Springer crossed with a working cocker. He's 100% mental. There was always the worry … Continue reading The Pros of having a Dog with Children
Today has been one of those days! Usually you'll get maybe one child that plays up but today it was both even though one was at pre school until 3pm!
