Why we chose the GFCF Diet & Our Results

Last week I wrote about the GFCF diet including what it was, why it is supposed to help and foods to avoid. In the future, I will share some of the brands and recipes I have found which are both gluten and dairy free. Today I want to talk about the signs that made us try the GFCF diet and improvements…

I have been a little MIA on both the blog and my Youtube channel but since the rain has gone away and I have a child destined to be outdoors and another who refuses to sleep all day until about 9pm the time I get on the laptop is usually with one eye struggling to stay open. We have been…

Making a comeback? | Vlog

I usually keep my blog and Youtube channels separate but seen as I had disappeared from vlogging for a few months I just wanted to share my recent upload.

Peaceful Toddler Bathtime Tips

Ellen / October 28, 2015

Apart from the first few early weeks, Aidan has never been a fan of bathtime.

This usually results in a stressful, 2 minute, not rinsed…

Edible finger paint

Aidan is at the stage now where everything goes in his mouth. He is truly exploring the world with his mouth. This makes play time a little more difficult.
