Baby Boom and Barney

The stereotypical, non committal male would have felt the premonition to run and hide if they had participated in the events I did this past Friday morning; I attended the Baby Expo in Cape Town. If you weren’t confronted with a baby belly, you were confronted with a pram or sometimes both. I’m sure the young males were not the only ones who would fear this sort of fare. Several of the husbands and...

Gymn Ball Baby

Unlike my own gymn ball, Granny and Grandpa had an inflated gymn ball at their home. This landed up entertaining my son for some time. My husband then felt inspired to inflate my “not been used since pregnancy” gymn ball and use it as a source of entertainment for our little guy. What a great idea! He loves it. If he catches a glimpse of it as we pass the room where it is kept, we have to make a...

You Can Dance…Having the Time of Your Life

There’s no better way to lift one’s spirits and get in a workout, than to put on your favourite cd and dance like a looney in your lounge! Baby will love it as you twist and turn. There’s also mood music with more gentle swaying motions that used to settle a baby. Ieven found music to be a great help with kitchen duties when I’m cooking and my baby has to sit and watch. He much...
