AmiGami Craft Party

To make P1s Easter Holiday that little bit more special we were sent some pretty amazing AmiGami sets so that she could host her own craft party with up to 10 of her friends. I was really excited to see her reaction as she’s been practically begging us for her own set for ages thanks to the TV adverts. AmiGami were …

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 …

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 …

P2 thinks her dummies are with the Easter Bunny.

I don’t remember the events surrounding when P1 stopped using a dummy and ultimately that’s the main reason that I have this blog and wish I’d known about blogging a long time ago. P2 has used a dummy from a baby. It’s been her comfort, my noise stopper and it’s been something she’s depended on in so many situations. When …

Celebrating His 25th Birthday & Easter with Balloon Time

A few months ago we were asked to be part of the Celebration Club for Balloon Time. The time scaled fitted perfectly with my hubby’s 25th birthday so naturally I thought this was a great excuse to throw a party for him. Hubby does so much for us as a family and I really wanted to show him just how …

My Sunday Photo – Easter Sunday 05/04/2015

I had a few pictures I wanted to put as my Sunday Photo for Easter that reflected our past week. There was one of P3 crying, as mean as that sounds, it really reflected the week we’ve had with her being poorly. Then there was the picture from Saturday, when we went to see Mr Tumble and P2 has her …

Why I Admire My Eldest Daughter

I’m taking part in the April Ultimate Blogging Challenge and today’s prompt was to write about who I admire and why. I had planned to write about my Grandad because my admiration for him is fantastic. But I’ve decided to write about my eldest daughter. I’m still debating whether or not that’s a bit strange. P1 is just over 6 …

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, …

My Sunday Photo – 29/03/2015

I’ve seen so many bloggers joining in with a Sunday photo linky so here’s mine: I chose this picture as with P1 a school the majority of the week it feels like we hardly ever get to spend any real time with her. Yesterday, at our local duck pond that we always go to, they were holding a model boat …

Co-Sleeping With My Third Baby

As a parent, we want what is best for our children. Of course we do. How we parent is largely influenced by our own upbringings and more nowadays by the internet. We have the input of every medically-trained professional under the sun telling us what is right and what is wrong. Ultimately, as a parent we know our children more …

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 …

“We’ve just had a four day weekend”

I am the type of person that is quite content with lazying around the house. After a while it does start to feel like you’re in jail, sharing your cell with screeching children, which is why I now make the effort to attend two play groups a week with P2 and P3. I met a lovely lady well over a …

Letter To My Princess 1 – 6 Years 3 Months

To my Princess 1, You are now 6 years and 3 months old. I’ve not been writing as often to you as I feel your progress is a bit slower now you are older. Since turning 6 you’ve started your Early Literacy Support sessions at school. I’ve really seen your writing improve. I didn’t think you were struggling but after …

A Potty Training Update for P2

We are about to hit 10 weeks mark so I thought it best I update you all on our progress so far. P2 is young for potty training in my opinion, but when she insisted back in January I couldn’t just ignore it. She didn’t grasp the concept very well. In fact there were many days when I spent the whole …
