Taking My Four Year Old To Clubs

When P2 was around two years old I began to have worries about her confidence. She was extremely attached to Hubby and me when we ventured out and would rarely leave our sides. She took about three months to stop crying every morning nursery drop off. But then something changed her. It was like a switch was flipped and P2 …

ALDI Specialbuys New Baby Range

Over a year ago now we reviewed some nappies from ALDI and were so incredibly impressed by them. In fact they were the best nappy for absorbency we’ve ever used but unfortunately, at the time our local ALDI was a pretty long way away and it just didn’t work out cost effective to shop there. Especially just for nappies. But since …

“I may have a daughter with autism”

Imagine giving your child a few packets of sweets, a can of cola and just to top it off nicely a bowl of ice cream topped with sprinkles. You watch their eyes widen, their body begin to go at extra fast, their voices louder and they become uncontrollable. That’s what it’s like to live with P1 right now. As soon …

Christmas 2015

The build up and anticipation for Christmas this year was immense for me. For some reason it all felt so much more magical this year than any other year. I partly blame blogging for that as I am aware of other people’s traditions, decorations and stories that surround Christmas. Since last Christmas we’ve been saving our Nectar and Tesco purely …

“P2 is an enhanced version of the little girl we adored before”

In the past few days I have had so many people say to me that P2 is suddenly so grown up. This thought terrifies me slightly and it wasn’t until then that actually it hit me. P2 starting nursery has completely changed our lives for the better and for everyone. For the first two months we had tears at drop …

A Letter To My Girls Ahead Of The New School Year

To P1 and P2, Today is your last full day at home together during the week. You are playing quite nicely today which is a lovely change from the week we’ve had with you both but I definitely think you are both ready for a break. P1 you are about to go into Year 2 and just saying that out …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 11 Months

To my Princess 3, Today you turned 11 months. These past 11 months have zoomed past and it feels like such a long time ago that you were a tiny screeching baby that we could never figure out. I don’t think you look like other nearly 1 year olds. I still think you are very baby-like in appearance which is …

#innocentFiveADay Fruit & Veg Fest and A Competition

I was up, showered and basically dressed before my three daughters and hubby had even opened their little eyeballs Tuesday. I always hate it when this situation occurs. It’s like I’m breaking the law of sleep and should be severely punished but it was all for a good cause. Innocent Drinks had invited the girls and me up to Fruit …

“I didn’t fully realise just how much I relied on her”

When my Grandad asked me if it was ok to take P1 on holiday for a week I jumped at the chance. A whole week of no arguing, no shouting, no rudeness and battles at bedtime. We needed a break from her if I’m completely honest as at the time, she was absolutely awful to be around. Typically, in the …

“The six week holidays will help to boost my personal blogging”

Just before the summer holidays started there was plenty of talk in the blogging community of fellow bloggers going on a break over the school holidays. I sat there knowing that I most definitely wouldn’t be having a break from blogging ever. We are now in the middle of the second week of the school holidays and I’m already finding …

Crafty DIY For All The Family

Let’s face it, DIY jobs around the house aren’t actually that fun! In fact, they are more of a chore that you leave on a list of things that need doing for as long as you possibly can.    With the kids off school for summer these jobs are just going to get put off for even longer! Firstly you …

Kids Fun At Home with I MUNE NURTURE

We’ve been experiencing some pretty awful behaviour with P1 lately. I’ve been doing a lot of research about it because I desperately want to help her to control and understand her emotions as well as understand them myself. This weekend I’ve especially been changing the things we do. Normally we like to use the weekend to recooperate after a busy …

My Mum, In The Eyes Of A 2 and 6 Year Old

There’s a new thing I’ve seen going around Facebook lately. You are asked to question your child without prior warning and without prompting them. After receiving my not so fantastic Mother’s Day card where she couldn’t answer the question “what makes mummy laugh”, I thought this would be a really fun thing to do with P1. Here’s our answers: 1. …

A Day Out with Three Mobile & A Samsung Galaxy S6 Review

I am without a doubt loyal to my iPhone. After all I have had an iPhone for the past six years and with Hubby also owning an iPhone and being able to message each other for free is just one of the reasons I haven’t changed. But when Samsung released a much bigger phone to the iPhone a few years …

“I woke up this morning knowing how the day would pan out”

I have been in tears today for two different reasons; complete exhaustion and complete joy. I woke up this morning knowing how the day would pan out. The same as every day at the moment with P1 and P2. There would be arguments, there would be tears, there would be fights between them and the battle would continue strong as …
