A brand new mummy friend asked me the other day about feeding rooms in shopping centres. I used them for the first little while I was out & about (until I realised that people don’t really care that you’re breastfeeding) so I thought I’d write about those I used: the
I’ve been hearing a lot about the antivacs-ers via friends in the US and Australia. Despite the fact that they spell whooping cough ‘whopping cough’, this article explains quite nicely why it’s so important to vaccinate. Herd immunity folks, that’s what it’s all about. Also, nobody wants your measles.
This morning we went on a bear hunt. (We tried out Tall Tales at the Tron Theatre: an interactive storytelling session for kids who are walking to age 3). What good fun! My little lady loved it; especially the part where they were squelching through mud (aka strawberry jelly). I
Ha! This definitely happened. Every time I attempted a shower when it was just me & baby!
We attempted a walk in Kelvingrove Park with the dogs and the trikemobile this afternoon. (I know, it looks like midnight it’s so dark, but I swear it wasn’t even 4pm!) Anyway, the park is waaaay too slippery, especially on the hills (which are pretty much everywhere in Kelvingrove Park). So
We took a little trip to the Riverside Museum at the weekend. It was an attempt to simultaneously get out of the house, and not be outside in the freezing cold. (We’re not big enough for snowman building yet, and although picking up tiny bits of snow and holding them for a while is fun, it results very quickly in tiny cold hands!)
Anyway, it’s big and echoey and not quiet at all. There are lots of trams & buses to climb on, a couple of little kiddie toys to play in, and two very large horses that are seemingly great to point at/yell excitedly at/run towards & away from.
As with all Glasgow museums it’s free, and the cafe upstairs isn’t bad too.
Great place to let a toddler run around for an hour or two, especially when it’s slippery, snowy, crazy windy or freezing outside!
You don’t actually get to look at anything with a toddler running around!
So we tried out Toddler Sense Knightswood yesterday. We used to go to Baby Sensory regularly, and my little lady loved it. But then I went back to work, she went to nursery and we haven’t had the chance to even check out a Toddler Sense class until now! But
We had a meal out at Darcy’s Glasgow this evening to celebrate my birthday. (33! I can’t believe it – I genuinely still think of myself as a 20 year old). Anyway, Darcy’s is a great place to dine with kids. The staff are super friendly, the grub is lovely
Now isn’t this interesting… I don’t doubt it’s more correlation than causation, but still, daddy’s doing the dishes until our new dishwasher arrives on Friday!
This is what I can say about 2014: It’s been haphazard. I’ve looked a riot most of the time and either haven’t noticed or haven’t cared. It’s been mostly ups, with one great big down. It’s been simultaneously easy & hard. I’ve been up earlier than I wanted to be
