Weasel Can Tweet

If you’d like more deep thoughts and contemplation on the meaning of life, go follow the Dalai Lama. If you want more of the same – baking for mummy to get over the all bodily fluids she has to deal with, diva-like behaviour of 2 toddlers and the daily life of being a failed yummy […]

How to Train Your Mini-Barista – A Step by Step Guide for Lazy Parents to Raise Useful Children

Husband and I have a goal – to have helpful children. Apart from all that stuff about unconditional love and carrying on the gene pool, we want our lives to be easier. Kids are hard work. Nappy after nappy after nappy, it could drive you insane. So when are they going to pay us back […]

Toddler Brushing Ploy Number 29- A Mirror

The flashing is meant to indicate when they can finish (although 60 seconds seems woefully short), but this is currently beyond […]

Vango Nitestar Baby Sleeping Bag – Maybe Your Kid Will Like It More Than Mine Did

I’m a sucker for cute things and things don’t get much cuter than a baby sleeping bag. After seeing the Vango Nitestar Baby Sleeping Bag on my random browses through Amazon, I couldn’t resist and bought it. It’s not like we had any plans at the time to go camping, but I figured we eventually […]
