Bedtime – Winter vs Spring

It’s 9:30pm and I’m tucked up in bed. I’m exhausted and have had enough. For nearly four weeks, the clever ones will realise this was the clocks going forward, my evenings have been sucked away into the oblivion. Rewind a week before the clocks and I had finally gained a child free moment of the day to blog, to watch …

Watching My Daughters Grow

Quite obviously the hot topic this week has been about the School Admissions and quite rightly so but for me, all I keep thinking every time I look at my three daughters is just how fast the time is going. Their childhood is swiftly passing us by. This week has seen a few changes that I’ve seen in their behaviours …

Siblings April 2015

This month has seen a significant change in my set of sisters. Their youngest sister is now sitting, still slightly wobbly, but she’s sitting and that’s what counts. It has meant that P3 is now slightly more interesting to P2 who hasn’t really taken true notice of her until now, suddenly she wants to play with her baby sister rather than …

Rockin’ Baby Patience Reversible Pouch Review

I really didn’t think I’d be such a lover of baby wearing but I am. I talk about it a lot on my blog and I’ve been lucky enough to try many types of carrier. The latest one is very different to the usual ones I’ve had. It’s the Rockin’ Baby Pouch. We have the Patience Reversible Pouch and I …

Our Sunshine Afternoon in the Easter Holidays

This morning, like most of our recent mornings, I opened the blinds to clear blue sky and sunshine. Last year we had a pretty hot summer but I was unable to enjoy it properly because I was heavily pregnant and sweating like a pig. Now P3 is here I’m certain to enjoy it. Getting out in the sun doesn’t have …

Toys R Us Toyologist – Barbie Malibu House Review

We were invited to join the Toys R Us team of Official Toyologists and the girls were given the task of testing out the Barbie Malibu House. It arrived whilst P1 was at school and the box was absolutely huge! P2 was really excited when we opened the box and was grabbing bits here and there. It wasn’t the easiest …

Our Weaning Journey – First Tastes with HiPP Organic

I know that weaning can be a stressful time for any parent, I’ve been there twice before and have made it through all the good and the bad bits. I wanted to create a series of blog posts on weaning. Of course, I am not medically trained and my way is certainly not the right or wrong way to do …

Mr Kipling #BetterWithCake – The First Week of Easter Holidays

We were given the really tough task of eating cakes. I know, terrible! Not just any cakes though, none other than Mr Kipling’s exceeding good ones. I arrived home one day last week to a delicious selection of Mr Kipling cakes; Cherry Bakewells (my favourite), Viennese Whirls (a close second favourite) and French Fancies. The first week of the Easter …

My Baby No Longer Loves Me

Under all the activities and excitement we’ve had the past few days, P3 has had a week where she’s been quite under the weather. The poor little mite has dealt with a lot in her little life already and when this cold hit her, it really hit hard. All week I’ve been wiping snot from her nose, changing some nasty …

Fun Spring Cleaning Facts With Spaceways

P3 is really not herself. I’m unsure what the cause is and think it’s a mixture of many things. Teething. A cold. The six month separation anxiety stage of her development. For the past week she has not wanted me to leave her side, its not even leaving her sight because that would be fine. I have to physically be …

Using Up Unwanted Easter Eggs – Chocolate Nest Recipe

Easter is just around the corner and if your children’s Grandparents (Great-Grandparents) are anything like ours, you’ll already have a huge stash of chocolate building up! We had said we weren’t going to give chocolate to the girls this Easter so I decided to create little chocolate nests to spread the chocolate consumption a bit better. It was also a …

“I’ve been my daughters comfort when she’s feeling her worst”

I told myself last night that I had certain jobs to do today. Our easter holiday break begins this Thursday and quite frankly our house is a pig sty! Everyone, except me typically, have come down with colds and I’ve slowly watched the mess creep on top of me. I’ve put caring for the kids and hubby above the cleaning, …

Green Sheep Baby Twist Natural Latex Cot Bed Mattress Review

Nearly a year ago P2 abandoned her cotbed and made the transition to a mattress on the floor. That sounds so awful and she’s still there but it has prevented her falling out of the bed which is great. Since then the cot has been a dumping ground, in fact it was stacked higher than me of bin bags with …

Letter to my Princess 3 – 6 Months

To my Princess 3, I can’t believe you are already six months and we’ve made it through half of a year of sleepless nights and poopy nappies. At six months you have rolled once, laughed twice and are sitting slightly unaided for 30 seconds. You smile at everyone. Having said that, you have definitely started to feel some separation anxiety …
