Switching Childcare for a Toddler – Pros and Cons

Once I found out I was pregnant again I knew a number of things were going to have to change, one of them was AJ’s childcare nursery. I was very nervous about this because I felt AJ had made friends there; she was going to parties and doing things in her class. She’d would even come home and talk about her friends in school so I was really torn about making the switch.

How being in a relationship could save you money – Infographic

You know the saying two heads are better than one? Well it looks like it applies to saving money too! Apparently a couple could save on their things like car insurance, energy bills and gym membership to name a few… I’d say that sounds about right considering I’ve lived on my own and as a couple, it definitely has it benefits! 🙂

Protecting our children from abuse – The PANTS rule

I read this article earlier today and it brought a tear to my eye.

This is something that always plays at the back of my mind – is my daughter safe? Am I doing everything possible as parent to make sure she is well protected? Which is why when I read about the PANTS campaign I just had to blog about it! I know it is something a lot of parents do already (and I’m possibly late to the PANTS campaign rule!) but for people like me that think oh my daughter is too young, well she isn’t! The difference between 2 and 3 is 365 days! So there’s no such thing as being too early to start practicing these rules.

Making the Internet safe for our kids

I’m a mum and quite an open mummy blogger for that matter.

I share pictures of my family online everyday, sometimes I worry this might come back to bite me but I do try to be conscious and careful of the things I post because I know the Internet can be a big, bad and unsafe world out there and I believe being ‘aware’ is the first step.

Hubby and I are very much into technology and gadgets (well kind of) I hate to say we’re geeks (he is probably choking on his coffee now because he can’t believe I just used that word to describe us :)) but yes, we both have that tendency so I’m pretty sure Anjie and her sibling will grow up being quite ‘aware’ too. We’re not going to fight it or prevent it from happening because that’s just the way it is – heck, I’m even going to encourage it!

How to Baby Proof your Home Infographic

So, yes I work for MoneySupermarket and all, but this is a piece I can definitely relate to!

Baby proofing our home is something we’re still constantly doing (even with a 14 month old baby), especially as we recently moved house. As much as we try to give Anjie the space to run around and have fun we also have to look out for her safety. One of her favorite places is the kitchen, which isn’t always a good thing what with all the cooking going on in there! But everyday is a school day so we live and learn! She’s definitely getting to that stage where she wants to be more independent and roam the house as and when she pleases! We’ve done quite a bit so I’m happy with the baby proofing we’ve done, the rest, we’ll deal with as and when required!

Seeing how much I love infographics, I figured I’ll share this one… it’s a baby gift guide which is actually for parents. Errrrr not quite sure about that though! After all, there’s no way I’m using a dummy or a baby play gym!
