Why don’t I give my children sugar?

Why don’t I give my children sugar?

I have been wanting to write about this for a very long time because it has been on my mind a lot. Do we need sugar? Does our body need it and most importantly, do our children need sugar?

My toddler is almost three years old and I can’t lie – he did try chocolate, he had maybe 5 lollypops in total, and he did try other sweets here and there but, he has them so so rarely, I can’t even remember the last time he ate a candy. My 16 month old never had any sweets or chocolate and I’m not planning to introduce it to him any time soon. I get judged for it sometimes and that happens with many things I do, but as a parent, I know what’s best for my children.  (more…)

How I survived at university with two babies

How I survived at university with two babies

I was seven months pregnant with my first baby when I started university. I went to university straight from college. I didn’t want to take a break because I was afraid I will get too used to being a stay at home mum and will never want to go back to studying, therefore I just wanted to get my degree, with kids or not. Started university late September, have birth 2 months after, in December, and thank God Christmas was just around the corner so all assignments needed to be pretty much done before the holiday. We only started again late January, so I had more than a month to just enjoy the status of being a new mum. By the time I started year 2, I got pregnant again, but this time I gave birth in June so I had the whole summer just for my babies. How did I survive it all? Keep reading! (more…)

A visit to Paradise Wildlife Park

A visit to Paradise Wildlife Park

Last week we visited Paradise Wildlife Park in Hertfordshire and it brought back all sorts of memories. I didn’t visit the zoo many times when I was a child, but I do remember the days I did go to the zoo with family or school. I treasure these memories and I hope my children will do too. This was my children’s first ever visit to a wildlife park. I’ve heard of it before but never imagined it would actually be worth the visit and so big. We spent 6 hours there; the longest we’ve ever spent visiting something with the children and I still feel like I didn’t see it all.  (more…)

How I potty trained my toddler in less than a week
