“We’ve just had a four day weekend”

IMG_0562.JPG

I am the type of person that is quite content with lazying around the house. After a while it does start to feel like you’re in jail, sharing your cell with screeching children, which is why I now make the effort to attend two play groups a week with P2 and P3. I met a lovely lady well over a ...

To my Princess 1, You are now 6 years and 3 months old. I’ve not been writing as often to you as I feel your progress is a bit slower now you are older. Since turning 6 you’ve started your Early Literacy Support sessions at school. I’ve really seen your writing improve. I didn’t think you were struggling but after ...

A Potty Training Update for P2

potty featured

We are about to hit 10 weeks mark so I thought it best I update you all on our progress so far. P2 is young for potty training in my opinion, but when she insisted back in January I couldn’t just ignore it. She didn’t grasp the concept very well. In fact there were many days when I spent the whole ...

10 Ways to Entertain Kids on a Road Trip

road trips featured

P1 has always been really good on car journeys, she’d fall asleep pretty instantly or she sits quietly listening to the radio and singing. However, P2 is growing completely differently and I miss the easy journeys we used to have. P2 gets very agitated and bored being in the car for a long amount of time. Party Bags & Supplies ...

A Day In The Life of a Mummy Blogger

featured

Blogging most certainly takes over your life. It’s actually become part of the family. I get quite proud and emotional about it if I’m honest. My little space on the Internet has grown so amazingly in just two years. The things we’ve had the chance to experience, like days out and new products, makes life so much easier at times. ...

Body Confidence of a Mum of 3

featured me

I was interviewed today for a magazine. The main aim was to talk about what it’s like to be a young mum. I felt very nervous and anxious before the phone call and it was even worse whilst talking as I unearthed the past again. But during that call I was asked questions about what it’s like to be a ...

A Letter to my Toddler Going Through The Terrible Twos

DSC_7989

To my Toddler, As you throw yourself around the room with legs flailing because you weren’t allowed an ice cream at 7am, I feel myself getting frustrated already. The tears are falling from the argument we’ve had over milk and you have been shrieking for over 20 minutes. You smacked me square in the nose so I told you off ...

Stabilo EASYoriginal Pen and EASYergo Pencil Review

featured stabilo

P1 has been receiving Early Literacy Support at school. I was a bit sceptical about it all at first, I wasn’t sure that it would help and to be honest I hadn’t noticed a problem with her writing or literacy. I thought she was doing well. I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to try out a special pen and pencil ...

“It’s a precious moment of the day”

I’ve come to the very harsh conclusion that my evenings cannot be spent hugging my baby girl any more. I knew this and have known for a long time but it was working so well for us. P1 and P2 went to bed by 7pm and then P3 had her bottle and we snuggled down on the sofa or armchair ...

Childs Farm Bubble Bath and Hair Detangler Spray Review

featured

I have to admit that bath times are certainly not my favourite time of the week, and when I say week I mean it. I couldn’t hack being a mum that baths daily. There just aren’t enough hands on my body and hours in the day. However, I’m pleased to announce that P2 has warmed up to water and is ...

I want to be a woman not just a mum!

admin-ajax

Last year my hubby bought me a subscription to the Cosmopolitan magazine. I was given a choice as to what I wanted but I chose this one because I wanted something separate from the topic of parenting. I’ve never been into fashion, makeup or girly things. I’ve always worn whatever the heck was in my wardrobe which has either been ...

Brilliant Banana Bread Recipe

Our meal plan that I created is now in full swing. I’ve made Fruity Oat Bars and lasagne (recipe will be available soon). I’m actually really enjoying baking and cooking, although the washing up at the end of cooking fresh is not so delightful. On Friday morning, Red Nose Day, we were all up even earlier than normal so I ...

Siblings March 2015

featured sisters

In true fashion, I left taking our sibling photos until the last minute, today to be precise, and typically things didn’t go to plan. I wanted my sibling photos to not only represent them as sisters but to be adventurous and ones to keep in the family album. My plan was to take them outside as the weather has been ...
