Getting YOU Ready for School

Getting YOU Ready for School

So, your baby’s off to school in September! There’s lots you can do to help them feel ready for the change – find some of our top tips on our blog post here. But what about you? If we’re honest, we both underestimated what an adjustment starting school would be, for us as well as for our little ones – and Leanne’s a teacher! So we thought it would be helpful to share some of the things that make the transition easier for us.

Getting Ready for School

So, your baby’s off to school in September! It hardly seems possible… where has the time gone? (Though, when we look back, the old adage that the years are short but the days can be loooooong certainly rings true.) There may be nerves. There may be high emotions. There may be blind panic. Some of these may even be coming from your kid. Here are a few things you can do over the summer to ease them – and you – into this brave new world.

Surviving the Summer

Surviving the Summer

Ah, the Summer holidays. As a child, they seemed to go on forever. As a mum – especially a working mum – they seem to go on much, much, much longer than that. Here are a few of our tips for getting through it without completely losing your marbles.

Are you… Holiday Ready?

Yep, it’s nothing to do with how you look in bikini (though by the way, you’re gorgeous – trust us.) As the kids count down to the holidays starting, are you feeling full of delight at the thought of the long summer stretching ahead, filled with stimulating and bonding new experiences and the day-in, day-out company of your little treasures?

Dealing with a threenager

Dealing with a threenager

Three year olds can be brilliant fun, but they can also be – how can we put it – a handful. Sometimes it might feel as if the other parents of ‘threenagers’ are acing it, but if their social media feeds are a tumble of cherubic grins, #blessed baking sessions and play that’s boisterous – but not too boisterous – in a National Trust maintained woodland paradise, they’re only telling half the story.

My little man is off to big school!

When I was pregnant I remember people saying to me all the time “Enjoy the journey, it’s going to go so fast!” Being very pregnant and uncomfortable, I was wishing time away so I could meet this little person in my belly. Fast-forward four years and here we are and I totally get what all these wise people really meant.
