A New Phase

So Miss Mimi started 4 Year old Kinder last week. We thought we should do a repeat of 3 Year old this year though as she struggled so much last year, but turns out that her class mates of last year’s class finally rubbed some of their confident social skills off on her by late … Continue reading

A Bird’s Nest.

Mister Maker really is so cool. Another little project Miss Mimi and I have been working on is a homemade bird’s nest…or perhaps it’s a bit of a trinket bowl? Whatever it is, it’s cute and it’s easy to do. Mix some glue and paint together in separate bowls. Create different colours together by mixing … Continue reading

Like bubbles?

I have been a stay at home mum for over three and a half years now. Sometimes it can feel like pure, laid back, easy bliss. Other times, it’s a constant battle of wills and a never ending search for fun stuff to do. Though the challenges I face with Miss Mimi are frustrating sometimes, … Continue reading

Pet Boxes.

I love cheap warehouse shops that stock everything from near-the-use-by-date food (although I’m afraid I don’t do that section well, I’m scared of things like that) to fake spiders to staplers.

The other day Miss Mimi asked me if I could get more of her bracelets out and if she could have all of mine too. She then set about putting them on display and asked me if I wanted to buy anything. I smiled and asked how much did she sell her wares for? Four … Continue reading

One of those days

I don’t like to admit this, but on some days, parenting can be so hard that there are a dozen or so other things that I wish I could be doing to lose my sanity. I could just join the circus and my fear of clowns would do me in…it would certainly be a whole … Continue reading

Playdough Fossils

Playdough is still the bee’s knees in our house this week and when Miss Mimi asked me to pull it out of the fridge again this afternoon I automatically set her up with the playdough cooking utensils. I was quickly told that those simply would not be appropriate for what she had in mind, so … Continue reading
