Lion Hudson Children’s Books – Missing Jack by Rebecca Elliott

featured

I’ve always been a book lover. These days books are heading towards becoming only digital editions, but for me there’s nothing better than physically holding a book in your hands. Having three daughters makes it super difficult to find time to sit and read, so my extent to reading is online blogs and magazines. However, my girls are following in ...

Princess 3’s Tongue-Tie Procedure

IMG_9697.JPG

I was up early this morning after being woken up from my dream about my Nan by P1 upsetting P2. It was 6am and the house was still pretty dark. The early morning was ok this time as its been a busy day. Today was the day for P3s tongue-tie to be looked at and hopefully snipped. We’d been referred ...

Decorate Your Own Wooden Train by National Railway Museum Review

featured

I hate mess. I hate messy play. I’m a pretty boring parent I guess. We have a huge plastic box absolutely overfilling with art stuff. Believe it or not I’m actually quite an arty person deep down. For me to get the art box out requires energy, patience and the right mind set. Today I had one of those moments ...

“Mummy, how do babies get inside your tummy?”

IMG_9380.JPG

I thought I had a few years to come up with my answer to the birds and the bees questions. My six year old thought differently. The question was sprung just as I was kissing P1 goodnight. “Mummy, how do babies get inside your tummy?” She said innocently. She’s witnessed my two pregnancies, seen my tummy go from flat to ...

Aden + Anais Starburst Cozy Plus Sleeping Bag Review

featured

I don’t use blankets during nap or night time with P3. I’m scared to. I get a sickening feeling in my tummy when I see photos of other babies wrapped up in a blanket. I used blankets for P1 every day and I used them for P2 only less regularly. When P3 was born the only way she’d sleep was ...

“It was the icing on the cake” – Last Day of Half Term

featured

We’ve had an exciting ten days off school for half term but the end half really has seemed to drag. We’ve done something every day this week which is huge for us as we tend to use the half term to relax. We’ve been to soft play twice, P1 has had a sleepover, we’ve seen my MiL and BiL on ...

Tommee Tippee Big Adventure – Straw Cup Review & Competition

featured

Friday morning we woke early. I really hate being awake when it’s dark outside and the girls are still snoring, oh and especially on a school holiday. But we had a good reason, we were off on a Big Adventure to see Tommee Tippee at The Baby Show. We’d been invited to a Princess & Pirate Party so the girls ...

Johnson’s Baby – So Much More Campaign

featured

I was invited along to the Johnson’s Baby So Much More Campaign launch. Unfortunately I was unable to attend due to feeling completely washed out from a double migraine and with P3 not very well too. I was quite desperate to go. Literally everyone I speak to says that bathtime is their favourite time of the day for many reasons, ...

The Traumas of February Half Term 2015

featured

I’m asking you to think about the absolute worse tantrum you’ve ever experienced with your child or relative. Times that moment by about 10 and you’ll have a clear image of my daughters. I look at these photos of them that I captured the other day and wonder how such beautiful little creatures can be the devil monsters that they ...

Half Term Nature Trail Adventure

featured

This time last year our household had been hit with a sickness bug (according to the TimeHop app) and half term, with all its plans and promises had gone out the window. I felt so guilty that week but we couldn’t help being ill. Nearly every school holiday since we’ve had some sort of illness that’s prevented us from enjoying ...

“I wish I could capture every second”

IMG_9172.JPG

Hubby is on his iPad as he usually is when we settle down in bed and I’m blogging. But there’s something slightly different. There isn’t the sound of a light snoring from P3. It’s been replaced by sniffling, grunting and the sound of her baby babbles. She’s quite content and awake in her SnuzPod. This is the difference. Normally each ...

Valentines Day 2015

featured

We’ve had an extremely different weekend. P1 and P2 have been for a sleepover round their Grandparents in Essex and we’ve had a weekend of just P3 which has been surprisingly easy. It hadn’t gone unnoticed that this weekend was also Valentines Day and I wanted to plan something for hubby as a surprise. I’m not overly good at surprises ...

“I absolutely hate going to soft play with my girls”

IMG_8682.JPG

It occurred to me today that I absolutely hate going to soft play with my girls. I’ve always thought of soft play as being a place that you can sort of relax and know that your children won’t hurt themselves too much thanks to the soft play equipment. When P2 was born, I went to our local soft play once ...

Parent Friendly Stays #ParentPanel – Treworgey Cottages, Cornwall

featured

I love thinking back to my own childhood holidays and the memories that surround them. Lots of country air, fields, animals and pure magical experiences. My Grandad had a very close friend who owned a farm in Somerset. We’d spend our holidays there helping muck out the cows, running around the many acres of fields and feeding the animals. For ...
