Our Weekly Roundup #11

The second week of the Easter holidays was a bit less busy than the first. We got to spend more time at home, watching films, playing with toys and of course eating some of the many easter eggs the girls received!

Izzy and I went to the cinema to see the latest Disney film, Zootropolis, about a bunny who wants to be a police officer. It was really good, even for the adults (although I do love anything Disney!) We went with friends and it’s so nice watching Izzy and her friend catch up. They are like an old couple sometimes, with the things they come out with!

The girls had a playdate with 2 friends that they have known for the past few months. They have really hit it off and play really nicely together. Izzy loves going round to other people’s houses, mainly because she is very nosey! She makes herself at home straight away.2016-04-13-21.17.24.jpg.jpeg

Scratch Sleeves: Stop toddlers pulling out their hair

We’ve been having a bit of a problem with Clara over the past few months. She has been pulling her hair out which has resulted in some big patches where her hair is thinning and short. It’s a comfort thing – she sucks her thumb on one hand and with the other she plays with her hair, wrapping it around her fingers and pulling it. As she always sucks her left thumb, she only pulls the hair she can reach with her right hand – so she has lovely blond curls on one side of her head and short, wispy hair on the other side. However, in the past few weeks the situation has really improved and we are feeling positive that she’s going to break this habit.

The turning point was when I searched on-line for advice on how to stop toddlers pulling their hair out. I came across this website for a company called Scratch Sleeves. I ordered a set of Scratch Mitts for Clara to try, and then the company very kindly sent Clara a PJ top to review.
