Katinka’s Tail Review – It’s A New Judith Kerr Book, People!

Judith Kerr OBE . Oh how I love her. Come on, we ALL do – show me a parent, and I’ll show you a battered copy of The Tiger Who Came To Tea. Her oddly age-irrelevant and rather wonderful ‘When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit‘ is one of my top ten comfort reads. I grew up with wonderful Mog, and enjoyed them all again the second time round with my children when they were small. But I couldn’t get quite as excited...

TOP Buys for Swimming with your Baby & Toddler #ExperiencedMummaTip

When your ‘babies’ are 6′ teenagers, it’s sometimes easy to forget those far-off days when they actually needed you every single step of the way. But it’s astonishing how much knowledge you stack away in your brain that’s just sitting idle, waiting for the day someone asks you (or till your babies have babies, and you can become *that* granny with all the advice). I was chatting to a fellow Brit in...

Sunday Picture Book – Dear Zoo

We love books – obviously – and we often review latest releases. But I’ve been a parent for nearly twenty years, and I know that the older books sometimes get overlooked by new parents – and they’re missing out on a gem or two of bedtime reading. I think we all know the Very Hungry Caterpillar, of course, but I find newer parents may not know Albert Le Blanc, Little Tiger or Spot. There have been some beautiful picture books that we’d...

Review of the Graco Evo XT – one rather fabulous stroller #GenerationGraco

Last in our #GenerationGraco series is a review of the Graco Evo XT – a fabulously sturdy pushchair that appears to be perfectly suited to our rural lifestyle. Once unpacked, clipping the axle, wheels and basket into place was a doddle, and we were literally ready to roll within minutes. Even with all the fab pushchair testing we’ve done recently, this one created an immediate impressed face. It looks great, of course, but...

Graco Modes 3 Lite Travel System Review #GenerationGraco

I’ve said it a lot recently – Graco is a name has been trusted by many parents for decades, and by me for almost twenty years now. But it’s been a while since I had a baby small enough to push around on wheels, so when Graco sent over the  Modes 3 Lite Click Connect Travel System I enlisted the help of the lovely Emma with baby Danny to put it through its paces for me. It’s a neat looking system, and like so...
