"The smartest pants" ( Potty Training Update)

  So we have the books (mummy's and JT's) and we have the decorated potty, all we need now is big boy pants so it was ......

and we found some that sir loved of course they had to be Thomas the tank engine ones!. he loves them and is a very proud to own such stylish pants!

He has been doing very well with wee's on the potty and none on the floor as yet, the stickers and praise have all helped too. 

So all in all a great start and a very happy little man strutting his stuff in his "momos" (Thomas) pants.

Mummys on a diet hide the cake!

As with the majority of the country I too have been subjected to the well needed new year diet!.

So I set myself a target day for the 1st February to begin my diet, the 1st of January would have been such a tormenting date to start for me as the cupboards were still bursting with all the goodies from Christmas.

January was a month to invite friends and family over for nibble party's which gave us all a chance to catch up after the festive season and to get rid of all those naughty sweet treats lurking in the cupboard.

1st of February came round so quickly but I did need to start this diet as I am now the heaviest I have ever been, all my own doing mind you, too much indulgence and not enough exercise. So with a downloaded app on my iphone, and good friends who too are on diets and are very supportive, we conquered our first month, with watching what we ate and implementing exercising to our daily routines. we go power walking together 2 days a week and swimacise once a week, and by adding it in my daily routine is a real help to so its not so much of a chore but just part of my day to day now.  

And it is paying off I'm now just under a stone lighter and well on my way to my goal. This is the most determined I have ever been on any diet and to keep the exercise up is inset in me now for instance this Wednesday we had a parents consultation at Little Miss M's school (which went very well), on  the evening we walk normally, so determined I went with my husband who was fitting a carpet for his aunt and uncle in Faversham so I took little JT with me in his pushchair and power walked down to the marshes and back, and the views we had were stunning and a great talking point for me and my little man.

and when we got back the sun was out so we enjoyed a lovely stroll down the track chasing our shadows which JT thought was great fun. 

So getting fit can be fun too for all!
I will be a yummy Mummy x x

"wee wee mummy" it's that time again!.

I would normally apologise for being absent for the first 2 months of this year, however you can appreciate how family life can just sweep you along without a second to stop. We have had a few things (exciting)  going on in the Crazy Daisy household that have had to take priority over my beloved blog. All will come apparent in the next few months ( fingers crossed)  I will keep you posted.

Well it's that time again in parenting where we have to admit that our babies are growing up. My little JT has been saying for a little while now when he is doing a wee in his nappy, but this week he has been taking his nappy off when he has been wetting it.

We brought him a potty and a book just before christmas just so he can get  used to seeing it, sitting on it and he enjoyed reading the book ( sometimes whilst sitting on the potty) , with the occasional wee on it. However today we have made some changes to his bargin £1 potty with yet another bargin of 99p thomas the tank engine stickers, and the end result was a very proud little boy, who straight away shouted " WEE WEE MUMMY!!" he was very pleased as he stood to find his first wee in his improved potty, and all for £1.99.

So as you can all imagine a very proud mummy sits here typing this to you, but also a little saddened as this means my baby boy is not such a baby but is growing up in to a Toddler. Just one more step in him gaining independence and not needing me as much.

I will keep posting updates on little man's progress and our adventures with Potty training.
