Princess Polly’s Potty – A Book To Help Potty Training

We have been potty training P3 for about five months now. She’s been doing really well but it’s definitely been a slower progress than her big sisters. She has been dry in the day for a while, with the odd accident of course, but her poops are a big problem still. It doesn’t matter how we approach it, gentle or …

It is always nice to let your loved ones know that you are thinking of them and how much you appreciate them. One of the best ways to do this is to buy them an unexpected present. For your female friends and family members, it is really easy to come up with ideas, but for the men in my life, …

Siblings 2017 – September

September is a big month for us. I can’t believe that we are half way through it already! This month has signified big changes in our routines with back to school, two of the girls starting new places and we’ve still got two birthdays and a wedding anniversary to look forward to by the end of September. P1 is now …

Last Summer Sunday At Penshurst Place

I felt a lot of guilt and a lot of excitement all at once about our visit to Penshurst Place for their last Summer Sunday event of the summer. We had decided to leave P3 with my MiL because she had spent the majority of the previous two weeks being super grumpy and we had all been craving some peace. …

Her First Day At Preschool

I have read so many posts in the past week about parents feeling emotional about their children starting school. I’ve never been able to relate to that feeling, I’ve never really felt that emotional attachment to my children, the sentimental need to keep drawings. In fact I thought I had something wrong with me until today. I had little sleep …

You Are In Year 4

Over the past year or so we have been watching a brand new building arise from the old school playground. Each week something would change about it; bigger, the roof put on, windows going in, outer panelling on, new playgrounds created and then finally it was finished before the end of the last school year. The school was moved from …

P3 Had Her Introductory Session At Nursery/Preschool

I have been waiting for this day for such a long time. I was awake so early, getting organised, putting my makeup on and my clothes. Typically P2 and P3 didn’t wake until quarter to eight, like really?! Why didn’t they do this in the holidays?! Somehow we still managed to be a little rushed out of the door. So …

End Of Summer Visit To Eagle Heights

With only one more weekend left until school life and routines return, we felt like we should make the most of it. We had tickets for Eagle Heights sitting on the side for pretty much the entire summer holidays but hadn’t managed to fit a day in to make our visit. My mother-in-law also had tickets so we teamed up …

IOW 2017 Day 8 – Quick Visit To Blackgang & The Ferry Home

The weather was in tune with my emotions for our last day. It was gloomy and foggy. My heart felt heavy with sadness as we prepared to leave The West Bay Club. Staying in the House Of Liz Earle was just magical; it was a fantastic place to recuperate (as much as the girls would allow) in the evenings, for the girls …

IOW 2017 Day 7 – Blackgang Chine

I actually finally had a more chilled out morning. The motivation and excitement for our day ahead clearly got me out of the incredibly comfortable bed at West Bay. Whilst doing my makeup I heard that dreaded thudding of a child falling down the stairs, thankfully P2 had caught her little sister has she nearly tumbled down the entire flight …

Letter To My Nan – 4 Years

On this day four years ago my biggest baby, P1, started her primary school education back in Essex. That day holds so many precious memories. I’d dropped P1 off at school on time, not knowing anybody as we had been through an appeals process and subsequently missed any taster sessions they had. I needed to return back to the school …

Back To School Dramas Sorted With Kickers!

Our beloved older daughter kindly reminded us a few days ago, with less than a week left until school begins, that her current school shoes were too tight for her. We’d been so consumed by the fact P2 was starting big school for the first time that we’d neglected the fact we had another one who was going up a …

IOW 2017 Day 6 – Steam Railway & Ryde Beach

Hilariously my alarm went off, I set up my camera to film me for a few seconds and then accidentally fell back to sleep. I had about ten minutes of footage watching me sleep. You can see a snippet of that in the opening of my video below that accompanies this blog post.  The idea of getting myself up earlier …

IOW 2017 Day 5 – A First Swimming Lesson, Isle Jump & Sandown Beach

Our fifth day on the Isle Of Wight was definitely our most relaxed one. We needed it by this point as our days were long with many late nights and early mornings. Our little family needed to just chill for a little.  We woke up to beautiful sunshine so P1 had her breakfast outside on the decking of the House …
