    Contemplating motherhood – life with a daughter

    Before becoming a Mum I used to dream of having children from a young age.  I always wanted at least one of each but I knew I wanted a daughter first.  Don’t ask me why because I don’t know.  Whenever I thought of myself as a Mum, it always began with life with a daughter.  […]

    What it’s like to have a child who doesn’t eat

    It’s been nearly 11 years since my journey with attempting to feed Lillie began and it hasn’t got any easier, in fact, if anything, it’s getting worse. She’ll grow out of it As a small child, I was forever being told: “she’ll grow out of it, my daughter was a picky eater at that age”. […]

    Lillie’s Birthday Camping Party Weekend

    As Lillie’s 10th Birthday approached this year I’ll admit I was totally stumped as to what to do for her to celebrate with her friends. She’s had craft parties, soft play, rollerskating, swimming and horse-riding parties in the past. Now we needed something that was a little bit more grown up but still fun. I […]

    Children’s jewellery from Molly Brown London

    Lillie has always been quite the girly girl, her love of all things pink, purple or sparkly has not waned once in her (almost) 10 years. Last year she talked me into getting her ears pierced and some days she changes her earrings twice because she loves the chance to change her look. Molly Brown […]

  • Making Slime: Glam Goo Deluxe Pack Review

    Since slime and Glam Goo became the must-have accessory in your arsenal Lillie has had all kinds from glittery or fluffy to clear and seriously smelly! None of these have kept her (and her brothers) as amused as when she was sent the Glam Goo Deluxe Pack to review in ready for National Slime Day on 17th […]

  • How do you help a child with control issues?

    I always think twice before I publish posts relating to my children. I don’t ever want them to look on Mummy Matters and feel that I am making fun of them or belittling them in any way. One question I always ask is whether I am writing the post for the right reasons. In this […]
