Daddy is Nice

Every time my husband feels helpless with the chaos our kids bring, he comes back from Arya’s room and says: “I HAD to give her the iPad cause we need to have some time for ourselves”.

And I follow Arya every day restricting her iPad hours just for this.

Today was the same, he, working from home, let the emotionally blackmailing almost-three-year-old chipmunk watch her cartoons and once he’s left I had to pick up the mess cutting Arya off her addiction.

It was the nap time so of course I got treated with real diamond tears … and this: “Mummy, you’re not nice. Daddy’s nice”. And she sat down desperately in the corner to finish her lamentations.

“Oooof course daddy’s nice. Ooof course he is”

Are You a Good Mum feeding Your Baby Good Food?

Do you feed your toddler healthily?

I’m very much into healthy eating but I think this obsession is going much too far. One thing everyone needs to understand – very often (for example in children’s case as well as pregnant women) it’s hormones who dictate and “force” us into what we choose to eat. There are children who eat a lot at some point of their lives because their growth spurt is different than those who don’t feel the need to eat so much. As long as it’s all monitored and looked at together with burning calories through healthy activities like sport, don’t eat junk food or sweets everyday, it’s all good, I think.Now let’s look at pregnant women- for goodness sake – it is so overwhelming “eat this don’t eat that” eat healthily if you care for your baby. Do these people who give this amazing advice know what craving is? My sister was throwing up whenever she even smelled any food and the only thing she could eat was toffee sweeties. Bad mother. Horrible mother!!! When I was breastfeeding the only thing I could eat was chocolate (and I am not a chocolate fan). I stopped caring for these over exaggerated warnings and instructions. Fed up
