Baby's First Calendar

If you are struggling to think of a gift to buy for your friends/family new born baby or friends baby shower, worry no more. I have come across this great product which is sure to be the answer.  Instead of buying the typical boring baby outfit which the baby will only probably wear once, why not purchase a Baby's First Calendar. This personalised Calendar is the ultimate baby keepsake which records their key milestones in an easy and fun way. There are stickers for each milestone, an in built room thermometer, safe sleeping advice and space to attach baby’s birth details and photo’s.  It is in an easy to use Poster format so no fiddly baby record book to fill in that just gets forgotten about.

  Baby’s First Calendar Ltd are also a Sponsor to the Cot Death Charity FSID (Foundation for the Study Of Infant Deaths). They donate 10 pence from every sale to FSID to help fund  researchto prevent cot deaths. I'm sure you will agree that this is a very worthy cause. Baby's first Calendar won a Small Business Sunday / #sbs award from Dragons Den Star Theo Paphitis so you can't really get a better endorsement than from a Dragons Den member.  Another great thing about these calendars are that they retail at £17.95 so are really affordable and I am sure that any recipient of one of these calendars would be really pleased to receive such a thoughtful and practical gift! check out the website http://babysfirstcalendar.co.uk/buy-babys-first-calendar  of facebook page http://www.facebook.com/BabyFirstCalendar  for more details.

Silent Sunday

My beautiful daughter Iola and her slightly dishevelled mum

My Slightly chubby three month old son Bryn, who is clearly enjoying breastfeeding a bit too much.

My First Time

Ok, this is my first time in the alien world of Blogging so please bear with me. I am looking forward to getting my thoughts out into the open but my honesty and lack of common sense may scare some of you. Ultimately I am hoping that some of my ramblings may be of assistance  to you but lets not get ahead of myself. After all, I am a 'bad mutha'.

Many women appear to act the 'Perfect Mother' and seem scared to admit openly when they have got things wrong. I want to help women feel that they can be honest about their mistakes. After all, no one is perfect, and motherhood is a journey where we learn from what we get wrong. I may be a 'bad mutha' on times but contrary to popular opinion, I think most mothers feel this way at some time or other.

I am a mother to a beautiful 2 year old girl called Iola (pronounced yola- she's going to love me for this when she's older!) and a three month old son called Bryn. We have our moments and our days are full of ups and downs, but I'm pretty confident that the good times outweigh the bad.

As part of my indiscretions as a mother, I have purchased many an item for my 2 little angels/devils that has proved pointless and unecessary. On the other hand I have bought items that have proved to be absolute 'must have' items so I am looking forward to sharing this with you, in the hope that you can all learn from my mistakes.

Anyway I am going to stop waffling on now and leave you to get on with the multitude of tasks that have undoubtably been laid at your door. I'd like to finish by saying that I am looking forward to getting some followers and having some fun!
