I thought I’d share a few of the twiglets’ favourite toys at the moment – not sure if anyone will be remotely interested but I just figured there could be some useful ideas for anyone looking to buy birthday gifts (or Christmas gifts if you’re insanely organised 🀣) for 3- or 4-year olds 😊 So here we go…

Twiglet Top Tips – the Potette

A month or so ago, we started to potty train Cora. Henry wasn’t ready (still p*ssing all over the house if I took his nappy off πŸ™ˆ) and I figured I’d personally find it more manageable to do one at a time anyway, given that I wasn’t sure how it was going to go and had basically no idea what I was doing. Anyway C did amazingly with wee and was dry within a couple of days. She started off doing well with number 2s as well but then seemed to regress after a little while, and now waits until she has a pull-up on at night to go πŸ™ˆ She’s not dry all night so we can’t take the nappy away yet but I’m sure she’ll get there eventually – I’ve read and heard that it’s very normal for πŸ’© to be a bit more tricky to crack.

Twiglet Top Tips – More2Explore

So far my blog has been all about telling my parenting journey and discussing issues I’ve encountered along the way, with a few (hopefully) funny stories thrown in. I hope that it brings a smile to a few of your faces and maybe a bit of reassurance when it’s an issue you can relate to 😁 I’ve decided to introduce something new alongside my usual posts and start sharing some fabulous brands and/or products as we come across them. There are so many small businesses out there, particularly on Instagram, and it can be hard to know which ones are great, which ones are not so great or which ones you can trust. I for one, love recommendations and will often end up buying things I’ve seen people I follow wearing or using (#instagrammademedoit 🀣🀣) If you’ve followed me for a while on Insta, I hope it comes across that I’m an honest and genuine person – for example, I would always say if we were sent something for free (we are very lucky that that happens occasionally). I wouldn’t ever recommend something just because it was free but only if I genuinely loved it and thought it could either make things for others that little bit easier, or just to make you happy so they seem easier 🀣 Anyway, introductory spiel over…. Introducing my first β€˜Twiglet Top Tip’ 😁😁 This week I’m featuring a lovely company based in Scotland called β€˜More2Explore’ and their awesome product, the Adventure Belt.
