Blog : Little Lilypad Co

The Little Lilypad is a lifestyle blog mostly written by a mum to two beautiful, cheeky and entertaining daughters. It is sometimes written by the Man on the Pad or by one of our baby bloggers. Occasionally we accept guest posts too. There is frequently talk of shoes and clothing (we love fashion and savvy shopping), chocolate (who doesn't love chocolate) education and swimming (we love this too). It is hopefully helpful, sometimes funny and always honest.

  1. Love Is .... receiving a digital postcard from Ghana celebrating #goodwork

    Posted on

    This school is on the edge of a slum in Accra.  A slum that is home to 75,000 people.   All of whom that we saw waved, high fived us, and wanted to show us their homes.   The school has 250 pupils ranging from 2 to 16 and was started 10 years ago.


    This is a digital postcard sent from TeamHonk (;;  during their travels with Comic Relief in Ghana celebrating #goodwork. 

    For  the past 25 years the money raised through Red Nose Day has been changing the  lives of the poorest and most disadvantaged people in the UK and Africa. Let’s  Keep Up the Good Work. Find out how

    Today's Love is.. post is from Hannah who writes over at A New Addition


    Love is a feeling where two people are connected

    Love is your saviour through the hardships

    Love is when you first look into your babies eyes and know they are your life.

    Love is when they are away but yet with you.

    Love is watching them sleeping

    Love is feeling content

    Love does never want it to end

    Love is breath taking.

    Love is beautiful.

  3. Love is ... laughter

    Today's guest post is from Chelsea who blogs at MSMummyofTwo

    For me love can't really be defined by one word, phrase or paragraph even, no that would be too easy!

    Lets hope there is enough space here for me to try and get across what love is for me? 

    Love is crying through your wedding vows, making you sound like a scratched CD, looking up and realising you are not alone, he is a bigger softy than you, sobbing into his sleeve.

    Love is having your back rubbed during labour, whilst you are perched on the toilet having a poo. 

    Love is holding your hand and asking all the right questions when you have just been told you have a lifelong condition, yes, even woman are lost for words sometimes. 

    Love is never putting any of your washing in the wash bin for your wife because you simply could not bear her having nothing to do.

    Love is bringing home the right baked goods after a hard day with the kids.

    Love is not gagging at the smell of his farts, even stale under the duvet ones. 

    Love is carrying your wife to the toilet after she has had a massive steroid infusion, then her changing her mind.  

    Love is rectifying his housework mistakes without saying a word, okay maybe a quiet-under-my-breath mutter. 

    Love is creating a diversion when he decides to do DIY, in hopes he puts down the hammer and forgets... phew!  

    Love is giving you a lie-in and looking after the children and helping them create an almighty mess for when you wake up, SURPRISE!

    Love is coming home from poundland with more stuff you really do not need and smiling through the horror of it all.

    Love is not telling you that bra gives you really saggy boobs and letting you go the whole day thinking you look fine, when really you look like you have breastfed 10 children at the same time. 

    Love is letting him think those trousers fit, because they are his favourite ant not because he didn't give you the heads up on the saggy boobs thing! 

    Love is going out in public with him wearing those trousers. Oh the camel toe, oh the SHAME!

    Love is every emotion you could think of, its hard and its messy but I wouldn't have it any other way, after all, without it I would have nobody to laugh at!

  4. Love Is ... support

    Today's guest post is from Becky at Family Budgeting. Here is her very simple explanation of what Love Is ...

    Love is in the knowing you are whole heartedly cheered for as you set about your life and that if you fall you will be cuddled, kissed better, patched up and sent off with cheers all over again.

    We need this sort of love from our parents, our partners and our friends
