Why I got my daughter a wooden spoon for Christmas

Alice | Letters to my DaughterBlog, Parenting & Family, Support & Mental HealthLeave a Comment

I read a heartfelt post recently by Wendy from Naptime Natter about PND at Christmas. It got me thinking about the pressure parents can put on themselves to make Christmas perfect for their children, even when they’re really tiny. Be it going all out on decorations, chasing down every last item on the baby gift guides, taking them to ALL the Christmas … Read More

Have yourself an eco-friendly Christmas day

Alice | Letters to my DaughterBlog, Parenting & FamilyLeave a Comment

Christmas is a time of mass consumption and produces a lot of waste. We’re getting close to the big day so chances are you’ve already done most of your shopping, and hit up the eco-friendly Christmas gift guides if you’re that way inclined. You’ve bought your wrapping paper, your Christmas tree and decorations are up, I’m not going to undo … Read More

11 thoughts I had while pregnant that will make you LOL

It still amazes me how totally, utterly clueless I was before having a child. In my arrogance borne of inexperience, I freely judged other people’s parenting whilst holding a very clear idea of exactly the type of parent I would be. No nonsense parenting, impeccably mannered children, days full of enriching activities and never a raised voice. I’ve pretty much … Read More

Welcome to #BlogCrush week 43! Does anyone else feel like they’ve misplaced a couple of weeks somewhere?! It feels like Christmas is hurtling towards us at a rate of knots, and the to do list is still disconcertingly long. I’ve decided that I’ll just keep plodding through it in a vague order of importance and whatever doesn’t get done, doesn’t … Read More

Dear Daughter: Believe in something

Alice | Letters to my DaughterBlog, Dear Daughter, Parenting & FamilyLeave a Comment

I have some big, sometimes controversial beliefs. I label myself a feminist, and that automatically gets me both cheers and groans depending on the audience (you tend to just look blankly and turn back to watching PAW Patrol). I also champion breastfeeding and a mother’s right to the support required to meet her goals, and to feed her child for … Read More
