Siblings June 2015

So it turns out that the 15th has really creapt up on me. When I decided to religiously join in with this linky I wanted to have a dozen photos to look at come December that I could one day make into a canvas of some sort. As much as I love natural photos of my girls, I have come …

She’s Crawling

P3 is crawling. Well not particularly getting from A to B but she’s certainly getting there. This development has happened earlier than both her sisters. P1 crawled for the first time around her birthday and P2 crawled at 9 months 2 days old. P3 is 8 months 2 weeks old. I don’t remember the ins and outs of P1s crawling …

My Sunday Photo – 14/06/2015

This week has seen us all be quite poorly. It started with me having a cold which was passed to Hubby. We had to rearrange and cancel seeing family in Essex twice. We were unable to make our Monday Gymboree class and by Thursday P1 and P2 had upset tummies so our Thursday playgroup and school was cancelled. We did …

What’s In My BritMums Live Bag?

I really cannot believe that in under a week I’ll be heading to BritMums Live with P3 in tow and Hubby waiting at the hotel by himself (poor bloke). It feels like just yesterday that I secured my sponsor, Fisher-Price. Last year I was so incredibly nervous about the whole conference. I had no idea what to take, what to …

Father’s Day Competition with MAM UK

I don’t normally buy gifts for Father’s Day. I am someone who likes to believe that we appreciate our Father’s every day. I don’t think I do show Hubby how much I appreciate everything he does for our girls. Making sure that he can work from home, taking P1 to school, being taxi driver frequently, cooking, doing the clothes washing, …

FirstBIKE Racing Red Balance Bike Review

I was so excited about P1 getting her first ever push bike. She was ecstatic too. My Grandad took her to choose but with her hypermobility and lack of strength in her legs, riding a bike has been a slow process. At 6 years old she still uses stabilisers and lacks in confidence to the point she sometimes cries when …

“I’m trying to enjoy every inch of sun”

Life seems busier than ever at the moment. Probably because I’m trying to enjoy every inch of sun that shines in the sky this year and our little home houses three active monsters so I’ve sort of been push to go outside whether it’s across the road, out in the access way or to the park. Park being the popular …

Mattress Next Day Essentials V40 1 Topper Review

I never had a topper until I met my Hubby and he refused to get rid of his horrid, old, discoloured one for so long. Thankfully my MiL came along and saved the day by buying us a brand new, luxury bed topper so we sleep in pure heaven. Sleep is something all parents moan and groan, some have the luxury …

Our Weaning Journey – Vegetables with Cow & Gate Friends

In my experience both Spoon-Led and Baby-Led weaning are equally effective and it’s purely up to the parent to decide which method suits them best. I’ve done both methods and am currently doing a mix of both with P3. You are advised to introduce flavours and ingredients one at a time to make sure that your baby isn’t allergic to …

Managing The Cost Of Living As A Family

Money is a huge factor when people decided to have children. Will we be able to buy all the nappies and milk? The baby products like bouncers and cots? Is there going to be money left over for holidays or meals out still? Children are expensive and every extra penny really does count and for some families can be the …

Letter To My Princess 2 – 2 Years 4 Months

To my Princess 2, This past month has seen you really change. You now seem like a little girl rather than a toddler. You are walking more and more. I wonder if we really need a double buggy half the time. You walk to playgroup, to Gymboree and to the park. It’s making life so simple. You’re speech is just …

FlipBelt Nuclear Yellow Review

I stopped running for a little bit the past few weeks. Life and blog work has been super busy, I wanted to focus on the children a bit more and enjoy everything. But with the weather so beautiful I have started running again and have been using my new FlipBelt too. When I first started running I never even thought …

My Sunday Photo – 07/06/2015

Last year, I was heavily pregnant with P3 during the summer and hated the absolutely beautiful sun we had so this year I am determined to enjoy every second of the sun and heat. When we got home from the park or playgroups I really felt like I was missing the sun. We don’t have a garden which means I …

Leaving The Recluse Behind

When I had P1 I was made to feel ashamed of myself by some mums at the school, despite the fact all my fellow school “friends” we’re very supportive. The petition to have me removed from the school only made me more determined to prove them wrong. But as time went on and P1 arrived it was clear that becoming …

Nuna LEAF Review

As a new mum you soon realise that the amazing little human you created is a time consuming little monster that is permanently attached to your hip. You’re told to rest and leave the housework for another day. I remember being told that this time round, my third, and laughing inside. I’m not leaving the housework because I’ve chosen to …

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. …

“Her face was tear stained and she held my hand tightly”

P1 has once again been awful at bedtime and even managed to fall out of her bed, which is over 4ft tall, an hour after being put to bed and after numerous times of telling her to lay down and go to sleep. I struggled to find sympathy for her. That sounds so mean but she didn’t cry and there …

Arla Big Milk Review

Milk seems to be the bane of my life at the moment. I seem to spend so much time making formula milk for P3 and receiving demand after demand for “a big one milk bottle” from P2. Then there’s P1 who really should be having more for her bone strength and growth. P2 is addicted to cows milk in a …

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 …
