Forget Food, Think Felt

Are you trying to constantly find something new for your little one to play with around the house? Are they bored of their own toys already? Do they always touch things they shouldn't? Wouldn't it be nice to have a bit of quiet time play? Today I discovered how we can introduce play and imagination through low budget items and most importantly are safe.

Irish Inspired Whole-Wheat Potato Cakes

The humble British potato. So versatile yet mostly steamed, boiled or mashed! Do you have left-over potato's that never get eaten? Have you got a bag of potatoes sat in the pantry? This Irish inspired recipe also eaten in Scotland (usually served for breakfast) got me making some simple, quick potato cakes. Low in butter and using whole-wheat flour, they are perfect for a healthy lunch…

Frenzied Friday – Packing with a Toddler


We travel….a LOT.  But if you are a regular reader of Pardon My Poppet you already know this.  I find it chaotic to try to pack for a Toddler as well as myself.  Often I wake up in the middle of the night the day before we leave in a panic.  ”I forgot to pack the diapers!”  or some other such necessity.  Yesterday, Poppet only slept for 40 minutes.  This did not leave a lot of “me” time in the day, let alone wrapping my mind around packing for our trip to Sudbury in the…

Tears Don't Describe

I wanted to share something with you today that our family has been dealing with for the past year and a half. Ever since I started Izzy on solids we've had a love/hate relationship with the potty. Initially, it was just constipation but now it's developed into a psychological problem. She was so afraid of it hurting that she started holding in her poop as long as she could. It just made she problem worse because by the time she would finally poop it was hard as a rock. Continue

Meal Time Success

Okay, I'm been MIA from my blog. I hope it isn't a case of outta site outta mind with those of you and are following me. I have an excuse though, really. My family has been living out of our suitcases for the past month while we were taking a road trip to our new home. It was a long road trip with stops at both of our families.

Only 40 Calories?

As luck would have it, as a BzzAgent I signed up for a Nature's Own campaign and was chosen to participate. They sent over a coupon to try out a free loaf to see what our family thought about it.   What? Free food and it's something I have to buy for Izzy?!? Umm, yes I'll try it out. One of the breads they offer is a 40 calorie 9-Grain bread made with no artificial preservative, colors or flavors. …

Labels, labels everywhere!

A guest post by Amanda Lehrman from The Momma Files. Amanda Lehrman has a background in education and is a mother to her son Jack. This is her final post in the September Education Series as a guest writer for Mama Tales. With the various spelling strategies taught in school, many parents struggle with which one to use at home. Some of you tell your child to sound out the word, some say to look it up in the dictionary or refer to spell check on the computer. I believe that a combination of…

Random Toys

Personally, I think today's toys do too much. Walking through the aisles at the toys store most of the toys I see are battery operated and play music or make some sort of sound. When I was a kid, the toys we had made us use our imagination. They didn't do anything special unless we invented a story ourselves. As a parent, I try to balance the "old school" toys with the "new school" toys. The ironic thing is that at her age she easily grows tired of them.… Continue

Biggest Mistake!

I've been writing about my adventures in weaning my almost two year old daughter from da Boob. It's her most favorite thing ever! She gets so excited when I whip that sucker out. She loves it so much that she will volunteer "more boo boo peess mama" (translation - more boob please mama) without any coaching from me. I started the process of weaning her about two weeks ago starting with the middle of the night feedings. Things were going pretty good. By the end of that first week I could say… Continue

Last night was the best one yet. I hope I don't jinx myself. We had the same bedtime routine, milk, snack, diaper change and a story before bedtime. She had a little bit of nursing and was out in about 10 minutes. The only time she woke up was for about 5 minutes around 11:45pm because she was cold. After a little bit of back rubbing and a warm blanket she was fast asleep until 4am.

This past week I've been focused on one thing. No, that's not entirely accurate. My focus with Izzy has been on one thing. My goal is to wean her completely from nursing. She is turning two the second week of September and I would like for her to no longer be nursing for any amount of time by then. That might be an unreasonable deadline so at the very latest before we relocate to WA in October.…
