The dance floor is full, the lights flicker around the room and we know the words to every song that comes on. But this is not a Saturday night on the town. This is a Sunday morning at Constellations and the space has been transformed into one for families to make the most of those precious weekends together. This is the Holistic Harmonies Family Social. … Continue reading Holistic Harmonies: Family Social
There is no doubt that Liverpool is a city defined by music and you only have to take one glance at the baby/toddler scene to see that the city is continuing to invest in the musicians of the future. We have already written about Moo Music and Mini Maestros and here we discuss our third musical experience with Music in Unison. Music in Unison is … Continue reading The musicians of the future- Music in Unison
Phoebe loves a good bath and so finding herself in there at 12pm in the afternoon was a real treat! The events leading up to that early bath involved splattered, smeared and smudged paint, cut grass which found its way into every nook and cranny, along with a nice portion of green rice. No this wasn’t some ultra modern nouvelle cuisine, this was a morning … Continue reading Mucky Monkeys – Liverpool
It’s never the things you expect that trip you up and after getting through the early trials of breast feeding, creating routines, sleep training and the general ‘getting out of the house in less than two hours’ challenges that come with early motherhood I never expected to be so thrown by the weaning process.

The Liverpool Language Lab is based at the University of Liverpool and is made up of researchers and students interested in … Continue reading Liverpool Language Lab
Come on, admit it, you all love to be told you’ve done well. Whether you accept the praise graciously or lap it up it’s always nice to get a pat on the back. Some people thrive on it and it motivates their work, others need help to recognise it as they modestly underplay their achievements. I have to admit I can always work that little … Continue reading The Power of Praise
When it comes to babies the only constant is change. Just as you think you’ve nailed something the balls are back up in the air and you return to square one. As babies can start the classes from only a few weeks old it can be difficult to really work out what time of day is best for baby.

Only weeks into my maternity leave, as I became a regular on the baby clubs and classes circuit, one particular class kept popping up in conversation.
