What’s in Baby’s 2017 Christmas stocking?

What's in Baby's Christmas stocking 2017 feature image

With just a few days left before Christmas day, I’ve been busy packing up Baby’s oversized Christmas stocking. Last year Baby was only 4 months old and tiny enough that she could have been squeezed into her stocking along with her gifts. She’s grown a lot since then and even if she hadn’t, there’s no chance that she would fit in amongst the huge haul of stocking stuffers she has this year!

Christmas Gifts for 1 Year Olds

Christmas gifts for 1 year olds

Christmas is my favourite time of year, and unlike most people I love Christmas shopping! The fact that I have my mane shop bought and wrapped by 1st of December probably has a lot to do with this. 2017 will be Baby’s second Christmas, which I find much more exciting than the first as she is now old enough to find the festivities exciting, even if she doesn’t understand them yet. Unlike last year, when Baby was a little lump cuddled up in her rocker. This year she is a little ball of energy who sweeps around the house leaving […]

Review: The Cheeky Elf + Giveaway

Review: The Cheeky Elf

With Christmas just around the corner I’m starting to get excited about all the Christmas fun I can get up to with Baby this year. She’s still young but it’s never too early to start Christmas Traditions, so when the opportunity arose to review a Cheeky Elf starter kit I really couldn’t wait. About the elf tradition Back in the 2000’s the elf tradition was born. Suddenly households were buying their children unassuming toy elves which would magically (or through the hard work and planning of many a devious parent) come to life at night and get into all sorts […]

Christmas Shopping Rage

Christmas Shopping Rage www.grumpymum.co.uk

This post may not sound Christmassy enough for Christmas Eve, but it was inspired by my visit to town just days before Christmas. Every year I meticulously plan my Christmas shopping, specifically so that I will not need to visit the shops during Christmas week, but this year something went horribly wrong. Three days before Christmas I discovered that Grumpy Teen and Child both have God sized Christmas stockings and I had not bought anywhere near enough stocking fillers to do the job. So, with panic in my eyes, I bundled up Grumpy Baby and headed into the hell that […]
