Is it time for the C word already

Is it that time already? yes I think it might be, the dreaded C word has been posted a lot lately and it seems Christmas is not that far away thanks facebook friends for reminding exzactly how many Fridays etc there are left until Christmas.

All this Christmas talk has given me a kick up the bum, Im normally so organised with present buying and have usually already started by the school summer holidays.  Not this year though with bump arriving, moving house, sorting out new schools and my eldest daughters sixteenth birthday this month I havent even started.

Now Im starting to worry, when you havent got much money coming in it can be a real struggle and with one more to buy for this year too its going to be tough so Im on the look out for bargains, if you see any please let me know. My girls love my little pony, moxi girlz, play dough and have hinted they would like some shopkins. As bump is my first boy im a bit clueless and dont know what to get him ( he will be almost 9 months by christmas).

Ive been entering lots of comps to try and win some stuff as that would save some pennies or rather pounds, so keep your fingers crossed for me and lots of luck to all my fellow compers.

Have you started thinking about christmas? do you save for it?  are you a last minute shopper or do you start early in the year?

would love to hear all your views/comments etc

  1. I always start early with the kid's presies and get when there are deals on. Never pay full price. Good luck for some nice wins in time for Christmas :-)

Speech Delay

So bump is now 4 and he is having problems with his speech I'm at the point now where I'm thinking did I do something wrong? will he ever talk? and I just don't know the answers which is frustrating me so I can only imagine how frustrating it is for him.

His speech started off fine the usual mama, dad, dog etc then it just seemed to stop and no more progress was made and I was too worried at first because my eldest daughter who's almost 20 now didn't really say all that much until she started nursery.

By the time it came to his 2 year review I was slightly concerned and spoke with the health visitor about it and was referred to speech therapy, we waited a while for that and they only saw him once where the speech therapist sat and played with him and gave me things to do at home with him.

We did attempt for him to start nursery last April but it didn't go too well and he didn't go anymore, he is quite a handful and they wouldn't let him stay the whole s…

potty training a 4 year old

So as I said in my previous post about speech delay bump is now 4 and still not potty trained, I started off potty training at 2 and its just been a struggle ever since, I feel like I've hit a brick wall and I just don't know what to do anymore.

he wont sit on the potty or the toilet, have tried everything to encourage him, books, dvds haven't tried a reward chart because he would have no interest in that.  Took his nappy away but he will just wet or pooh himself and not care.

He wears a nappy to nursery and he is due to start reception in September, what am I going to do send him to school in a nappy? I cant do that, I'm hoping and praying he's just going to decide to do it on his own but he is quite happy still wearing a nappy with no prompt to change him if he's done a pooh.

I'm at a loss and feel like a total failure, I've potty trained his sisters perfectly fine so why cant I do it?
