Missed Your New Years Resolution? Go for the Chinese one like me!

I’m not a fan of New Year Resolutions.  On Jan 1st we tend to be knackered, broke, and there’s a hell of a lot of pressure associated to them.  Plus, most people fall off the bandwagon within a few days/weeks.  At the end of last year I panicked because I was meant to be launching a whole new exiting project […]

How Play Dates help with school and bullying

So I have mentioned in a post a few weeks back that Curly Headed Boy wasn’t very happy in reception (first year of school).  Last week I explained how I had tackled one of the problems, which is that he often feels overly criticised by the children in his class.  So, I thought I would give you an update on […]

When the wind blows your face will stay like that! Ooops!

Curly headed boy was making funny faces, and I couldn’t resist the urge to tell him that if the wind blows, his face will stay like that. He looked incredulously at me, until I pointed out that people who smile a lot, tend to have smiley faces, and people who are grumpy a lot, tend to have grumpy faces.  I […]

Fancy getting the Mummy Whisperer message out there and making some money?

Are you a Mummy Blogger, Coach, or have an email list that is likely to have Mums on it? Do you like the message that the Mummy Whisperer stands for (see below for a quick reminder!)? Do you fancy helping to let other Mum’s know about me? Would you like to be fairly recompensed for it? I’ve mentioned before that […]

The Mummy Whisperer Blog is now available on Amazon Kindle!!!!

Oooooh, I’m a ‘proper’ writer, I’m a ‘proper’ writer!!!  Can you tell I’m a little excited? Many years ago I did Maths, Physics and English ‘A’ levels, because as a girl if they saw any sign you could possibly do science, they heavily ‘encouraged’ you to do it in my school (there were still only a few of us though). […]

When your child thinks that ‘everyone’ is against him

I’ve mentioned in a previous post that Curly Headed Boy is struggling with his first year at school a little, but we have a plan in place to work on it, and I promised to mention the different things I try, so here is one of them: He happens to be on a table with some very clever, but quite […]

Top Seven Top Tips for organising a playroom and my guilty pleasure confession

I mentioned the other day that I’m a fan of decluttering. I also have a serious guilty pleasure; boxes (I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE boxes!), but also includes to shelves to put them in/on! So Ikea is my heaven on earth. I can spend a whole day in there, especially as I love the meatballs, yum. Becoming a mum, and trying […]

When the environment we are in doesn’t encourage us to blossom

We are a bit like plants, and our children are too.  Some environments help us to blossom, and some are more of a struggle. Put us in the right soil, with exactly the right amount of cold, heat, and water, and we’ll take off like a tree and blossom amazingly. Put us in a place that feels too cold for […]

Remember to see how good you are at stuff

This is as much a reminder to me as to you! I find that we often don’t think we are successful or clever at something because the stuff we have done well at often comes easily to us.  I remember being guilty about revising English, because Maths and Physics was harder.  One of my resolutions for this year is to […]

Thank You Letters that don’t put your kids off forever

I have a mental block with posting things.  I know I have.  I know where it came from too! I can see my Dad on the other side of the dining room table nagging me AGAIN about whether I have sent the Thank you letters for my presents.  I have a touch (ok, maybe a lot!) of stubbornness in me, […]
