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.

What do babies really need?

If you could only buy one item for your baby...just one...I'd say let it be a tube of Bepanthen nappy cream. I couldn't rave about it enough. Yes, let your child run naked and hungry as long as he/she is well moisturized in some Bepanthen. It's the only thing your baby will really need :) On a serious note, I'll always list that before anything else. And then coconut oil.…
