Max, Mouse and the Doll’s House Review and Giveaway

Check out our book this week for #BookReviewMondays

Our latest book we have been reading is called Max, Mouse and the Doll’s House by Christine Johnson. Now I’m reading to two of them. Baby dottie is more alert now as she’s growing at nearly 9 weeks old, and baby girl is taking lots of interest in books now. I often see her sitting down with a book, chatting away to herself and pointing at the pictures.

Before you get to our review, here is a little bit about Max, Mouse and the Doll’s House….

Potty Training with Little Budgie’s Done A Fudgie

Baby girl is now 26 months old. She is very switched on and has shown that she is nearly ready for toilet training. A few weeks back we reviewed the Step’n’ Potty from Bumbo, but she wasn’t quite ready for potty training then. When we saw the health visitor for her 2 year check up, she gave us some advice on potty training, but said to leave it for a couple of months due the change in her life of having a little sister next week. She said that with having a newborn in the house would be a big adjustment without having potty training as well in her life. So we will be back on the potty training in the Summer. Taking small steps as we go along.

For now though we have been reading this great little book called Little Budgie’s Done A Fudgie by Simon Harris. It’s all about a little bird taking his first steps out of a nappy onto the potty.
