How to help a toddler with Chronic Constipation – 11 things to consider

I’ve got a busy toddler. She pops up awake around 6am and it’s non-stop from then on. Toddlers don’t have time for a lot of things because they’re too busy discovering the world. Sometimes, one of those things is pooping.

Homeschooling in the UK

The hubs and I were discussing homeschooling the other day. It's because he walked into the room when I was watching a video from Jamelia on why she decided to homeschool her daughters. We suddenly realized that neither of us knew much about homeschool in the UK. We don't directly know anyone in the UK who is being homeschooled either. It's not something I hear much about at all at home but I certainly hear a lot about homeschooling in the USA and I can think of many moms who are homeschooling their children of various ages all over the…
