“Finally we have a preschool placement”

I have been desperate to get P2 into a nursery or preschool. She’s been on four different lists. It feels like such a long time since we put P2s name on the first nursery and preschool waiting list. This week we have finally been offered a nursery place for our beautiful 2 year old. Finally we have a preschool placement! …

Boba 4G Baby Carrier Review – Slumber-Roo Brand Ambassador

During 2015 I am a Slumber-Roo Brand Ambassador. We have already helped to give our feedback on one baby carrier and now I’m going to introduce you to the next one. The Boba 4G. I stopped baby wearing when the weather was absolutely sweltering but now it’s cooled down a lot I’ve been using the Boba 4G more frequently. The …

A Special Moment In Time

I have quite a few moments in my life that are really special to me for different reasons. Meeting my Hubby, getting engaged, my wedding day, even my Nan’s funeral held special moments for me like me writing and reading a letter to her in front of everyone and the fact that the whole room was packed to the extent …

Moving From Cot To Big Bed

When we moved P2 out of her cot and into a “big bed” we went about it completely the wrong way. When we found out about P3s impending arrival I panicked. We needed the cot that P2 inhabited for the new baby and we needed to do that before the new baby arrived so being the hormonal pregnant person I …

#SwapYourStroller With SmarTrike

Pregnancy, bad weather and life in general sort of took over and it’s quite hard to believe that we haven’t got the SmarTrike out for nearly a whole year! We are dreadful I know but the weather has improved significantly so we have taken the opportunity to dust P2s SmarTrike Dream 4-in-1 and use it a little more frequently. We …

Barbie Spin ‘N Ride Pups Review

The latest Barbie movie to hit our screens is Barbie and Her Sisters in The Great Puppy Adventure. Barbie stars as herself along side her sisters and their pet puppies. My girls love Barbie but they love animals, specifically dogs for P2, much more. Put these together and this film is set to be a huge hit with P1 and …

Doona Review – The Older Baby

Lately, as I’ve been watching my chubby munchkin grow and thrive I have been wondering how we are going to cope without our Doona. I’m sure that she has plenty of time left in the Doona seeing as it’s weight limit is 13kg and P2 has only just hit that herself but the Doona has become a staple part of …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 9 Months

To my Princess 3, You have now officially been outside longer than you were tucked up inside my tummy. You are 9 months old. It’s crazy to think that in just a few months time we’ll be celebrating your first birthday. We’ll probably end up having a joint birthday/wedding anniversary/birthday celebration seeing as you arrived the morning after my own …

“There’s now no need to wrap our toddler in bubble wrap”

When P3 was born P2 went from a tiny toddler snuggled in my arms to this huge giant of a child. Since turning two she’s changed so much that it’s really scaring me. She’s no longer a baby in any sense and has become such a grown up and independent little sausage. The things she says are just immensely amusing. …

Gymboree Sevenoaks Review

Getting out and about is so important to me at the moment but as I no longer have a car that I am able to drive (hubby’s car is manual and I possess an Automatic License) I find myself a little stuck with options. I am thankful that we have two stay and plays within walking distance from our house …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …
