About a month ago I was asked to review a children's app called KidloLand. I actually have never used children's games or apps on my phone or devices so I wanted to let the kids use it for atleast a few weeks to see if it was a novelty or whether they genuinely liked it. [...]
When does “mummyness” kick in?
Lately I have been wondering when does the 'mummy' skills kick in? You know the ones that not only your mum but your friends mums and then your grandmothers all have in the bag? Even some of my friends have acquired these skills when they entered the world of motherhood but I seem to be [...]
