{Raising Little People} Precious Firstborn Syndrome

Precious Firstborn Syndrome. Totally a thing. Like should have a support group with coloured ribbons or something.

If you have had a child, you have experienced at least a smidgeon of this syndrome.

I swear a girl I know may as well have been the founding partner of the syndrome. No shit, she used to sterilise her baby’s toys after every use. Gawd, I was lucky to shower once a day and somehow she managed to sterilise a zebra chew toy 4 times a day. Plus one time she rang maternity to ask if there was a particular sanitiser to use on her nipples before allowing her bambini to suckle..

Anyway, this article by Shauna Anderson ‘Precious Firstborn Syndrome‘ is an absolute riot. baby

Grab a coffee, read this and immediately feel better about yourself and your own parenting style.

{Raising Little People} It’s a boys club…

So, there is this exclusive little club I am not a member of. They speak their own language, have their own rules and eat a bucket load of lasagne.

The little boys club is a world of its own.

My nephew opens my eyes up to the way boys see the world very differently to little girls.

The clever Shauna Anderson has written a very funny eye-opening piece about the ‘7 things mothers of boys will understand‘.

It is quite a humorous eye opener as I sit here surrounded by barbie dolls and pretend make-up..
