In Reviews, Travel by eva.katona@yahoo.com47 Comments

We’ve been planning the visit to Legoland for ages, but we thought that Bobcat might be just too young being under three. Both mummy and daddy are hardcore Lego fans (even granddad!) so we also really looked forward to the day since we we booked the tickets. Upon arrival, at 10 am on a Saturday morning, term time, we were …

15 Fun Things To Do In Vienna With Small Children

In Travel by eva.katona@yahoo.com9 Comments

I love Vienna. It has been voted to the most liveable city of the world for a reason. I’ve visited plenty of times, however, never with my children until a few weeks ago. Naturally, this time it was a completely different experience, just as we did expect it to be. Not so much of Aperol-Spritzing and Museum Quartier visiting. You …

I’m Happy It’s School Term Again, Does This Make Me A Bad Mum?

In Life by eva.katona@yahoo.com6 Comments

That’s how it feelt in the last few days. Listening to my friends how they are having emotionally tough times as their toddlers are starting in the nursery or with a child minder. Most of my friends (just like myself) are typical helicopter parents to small children. But even though I feel like I’m being overprotective and worrying excessively sometimes, I …

So I’ve been hearing about this farm for ages from my mummy friends. It’s a short drive for a South Londoner, even with a toddler having a grumpy morning.  One lovely July day (when it was 30 C all of a sudden) we finally drove down there and visited it.

We travel to Barcelona every year or two because I love there, it’s one of my favourite places in Europe. I lived in Spain for a few years, it feels like home 🙂 It’s always good fun, very child-friendly and a lot warmer in March than in London. This time we wanted to be near the beach but still close …

The Gro Company sent me one of their fabulous Grobags to review it.

5 Reasons To Switch To Use Reusable Nappies

In Green by eva.katona@yahoo.com4 Comments

With Bobcat we use cloth diaper most of the time, I’d say 90% of the time. We only use disposable (bio-degradable) nappies during the night and when we’re out and about for a longer time (longer than half a day). The 2 main reasons we switched to reusable diapers are: they helped him with his eczema. Essentially, we reduced allergens getting in contact …

Pasta With Salmon And Broccoli In Cheese Sauce – Great Toddler Meal

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

I normally have this in the freezer all the time, for Bobcat and for the days when he’s extra picky and won’t eat anything substantial. Pasta can always come. So it’s a good idea to add as much healthy and nutritious ingredients to a pasta dish as you can. Very simple to prepare, a real comfort food for him. If …
