About Me

My photo
I live in Kent with my husband, toddler Tilly (henceforth known as Monkey) and another baby due in November. We have two cats, Duncan and Lady Macbeth, and four chickens who kindly lay us eggs daily. We live in the picturesque seaside town of Broadstairs. I enjoy reading, knitting and cooking. I'm trying to be a bit 'greener' (not sure how successfully), and to be a gentle parent. Extended breastfeeding and co-sleeping don't freak me out, we use cloth nappies and try to follow some of the ideals of Attachment Parenting. If that sounds as if I know what I'm doing, I don't! I am also a psychotherapist with an interest in Focusing-oriented therapy, and I have a small private practice in the area.

A Different Food Story...

This is  a more positive 'food' post. If you'd told me even two months ago that I could make my little girl a supper of pasta in tomato sauce with roasted courgette and watch her pick it up and eat her with her hands, I would have struggled to believe you. But here she is, and it warms my heart to see her do it. She's still a tiny girl, a dot, a dolly, but she's eating, and it's such a relief.

Mon, it is just incredible to watch. From being SO cautious about what she put in her mouth to shoving bits of bread, whole pasta shapes. She just seems to have learnt that it's okay to have a full mouth and that she can handle it. And with only two teeth! She still eats very little though and I have to be careful as she will vomit if her tummy is too full.

Yahhhh, well done Tilly :)

It is nice when they start to feed themselves isn't it. I do wish Rye would start again, it's becoming a bit of a pain having to feed him. Ah well, he'll start doing it again when he's good and ready.
