{This is life} Sweet & Sour Babies

Okay, so sometimes I am a terrible human being and find slightly inappropriate things funny. Like, take for example, babies eating lemons.

Look, quite simply, it is hilarious. Well, it was until my second baby-bird just happily ate lemons, that was way less exciting.

Amazingly enough, someone, somewhere in the world also finds babies eating lemons entertaining, so much so they went to actual effort to compose a video.

It is well worth the watch.

Here is a teaser of some of the little mites faces:

{Happy Easter} How about this year you hunt a little bit different for Easter Eggs?

Easter – that glorious time of year where chocolate can be consumed at 6.47am without a twinge of guilt, and it perfectly okay that an oversized, giant mammal in the form of a rabbit breaks into your home and leaves behind a trail of chocolate treats.

How about this year instead of the traditional Easter Egg hunt you try something just a little bit different?golden egg

The clever team at Over The Big Moon have put together a gorgeous list of Easter Egg Hunt variations – Glow in the dark anyone?

{Raising little birdies} Necessity is the mother of all invention

They say necessity is the mother of all invention, this is particularly true in this case.

One very clever mother has created a harness that allows her little birdie, that has cerebral palsy, to walk.

upsee-invention2

The Upsee Harness allows children who do not have the ability to walk to see the world from a position of ‘normality’, to give them a chance to walk tall.

In the not too distant future the Upsee Harness will be manufactured widely to allow more families the opportunity to experience this wonderful contraption.

Congratulations to the creator – we salute you.

{Raising Little People} Motherhood: The Big, Fat F$*k You

It is the most important job in the world, but also the lowest paid.

It is challenging and emotional.

Some days seem like an eternity.

No one talks about it though.

Everyone pretends it is easy and that they love it ALL of the time.

Not this lady. She speaks the truth. Lisa from Scary Mommy puts into words the exact way that every one of us has felt as some time or another.

Motherhood: The Big, Fat F$*k You is an honest piece of writing from a mother who today, has just had enough.
