    My Personal Parenting Evolution

    This is a collaborative post as part of my Ambassadorship with Johnson’s Baby.

    Back in 2015, I set this blog up to chart my pregnancy, and then as a way to document and treasure our baby’s childhood. I’ve written hundreds of thousands of words about how much Pickle has grown, how much he’s changed and his development. I’ve captured him on (digital) film right from those precious first moments in hospital right up until this morning when he delighted in tapping open his boiled egg for breakfast. What I’ve perhaps not realised, that through doing all of this, I’ve also documented my own development. The subtext running through all of my posts is how I’m learning a little more every day about what it takes to be a parent: facing each new challenge as they come, trying to realise and celebrate any successes and find ways to still stay true to myself and my own passions. read more

    Toddler Hair Care with Johnson’s Baby

    This is a collaborative post with Johnson’s Baby.

    In the past few weeks, both Pickle and I have had our hair cut. Which may not sound like much to write a blog post about, but it was Pickle’s very first professional haircut so it marked a huge milestone. Getting your child’s hair cut is weirdly emotional… and I can’t quite pin down the reason why. Is it because it always makes them look more grown up? Is it because (particularly in Pickle’s case) it took such a long time for him to grow what hair they had, that it seems like a shame to chop it off? Is it because we’re purposefully choosing to alter their physical identity? read more

    I’m a proud Johnson’s Baby Ambassador

    If you follow me over on Instagram, you’ll already know that this year, I am a Johnson’s Baby Ambassador. What does that mean? Well, I’ll be meeting with them once a quarter to learn about their research, their ingredients and their products so that I can be more informed about caring for baby skin, and in turn, share what I’ve learned with you.

    What do you know about Johnson’s Baby?

    It’s a big deal to align yourself with a brand. Becoming an advocate for a company isn’t a decision to be taken lightly. Even when you love their products, and would happily use them yourself, it takes a bigger leap of commitment to share your love so publicly. You’re held to a higher degree of accountability, especially when the company is as widely known and used as Johnson’s Baby. read more
