Would You Get Your Child’s Ears Pierced?

Earing piercing in children is certainly a contraversial topic. It’s been labelled as child abuse and parents that get their children’s ears pierced are very openly abused themselves with hurtful comments. I’m one of those parents. I had P1s ears pierced at 6 months old, I wanted her to have the choice of whether she wanted to wear earrings as …

Princess 3’s Tongue-Tie Procedure

I was up early this morning after being woken up from my dream about my Nan by P1 upsetting P2. It was 6am and the house was still pretty dark. The early morning was ok this time as its been a busy day. Today was the day for P3s tongue-tie to be looked at and hopefully snipped. We’d been referred …

Decorate Your Own Wooden Train by National Railway Museum Review

I hate mess. I hate messy play. I’m a pretty boring parent I guess. We have a huge plastic box absolutely overfilling with art stuff. Believe it or not I’m actually quite an arty person deep down. For me to get the art box out requires energy, patience and the right mind set. Today I had one of those moments …

“Mummy, how do babies get inside your tummy?”

I thought I had a few years to come up with my answer to the birds and the bees questions. My six year old thought differently. The question was sprung just as I was kissing P1 goodnight. “Mummy, how do babies get inside your tummy?” She said innocently. She’s witnessed my two pregnancies, seen my tummy go from flat to …

“It was the icing on the cake” – Last Day of Half Term

We’ve had an exciting ten days off school for half term but the end half really has seemed to drag. We’ve done something every day this week which is huge for us as we tend to use the half term to relax. We’ve been to soft play twice, P1 has had a sleepover, we’ve seen my MiL and BiL on …

Tommee Tippee Big Adventure – Straw Cup Review & Competition

Friday morning we woke early. I really hate being awake when it’s dark outside and the girls are still snoring, oh and especially on a school holiday. But we had a good reason, we were off on a Big Adventure to see Tommee Tippee at The Baby Show. We’d been invited to a Princess & Pirate Party so the girls …

Johnson’s Baby – So Much More Campaign

I was invited along to the Johnson’s Baby So Much More Campaign launch. Unfortunately I was unable to attend due to feeling completely washed out from a double migraine and with P3 not very well too. I was quite desperate to go. Literally everyone I speak to says that bathtime is their favourite time of the day for many reasons, …

The Traumas of February Half Term 2015

I’m asking you to think about the absolute worse tantrum you’ve ever experienced with your child or relative. Times that moment by about 10 and you’ll have a clear image of my daughters. I look at these photos of them that I captured the other day and wonder how such beautiful little creatures can be the devil monsters that they …

Half Term Nature Trail Adventure

This time last year our household had been hit with a sickness bug (according to the TimeHop app) and half term, with all its plans and promises had gone out the window. I felt so guilty that week but we couldn’t help being ill. Nearly every school holiday since we’ve had some sort of illness that’s prevented us from enjoying …

“I wish I could capture every second”

Hubby is on his iPad as he usually is when we settle down in bed and I’m blogging. But there’s something slightly different. There isn’t the sound of a light snoring from P3. It’s been replaced by sniffling, grunting and the sound of her baby babbles. She’s quite content and awake in her SnuzPod. This is the difference. Normally each …

“I absolutely hate going to soft play with my girls”

It occurred to me today that I absolutely hate going to soft play with my girls. I’ve always thought of soft play as being a place that you can sort of relax and know that your children won’t hurt themselves too much thanks to the soft play equipment. When P2 was born, I went to our local soft play once …

“P1 has asked to do some baking and go to a soft play area this half term”

Half term has definitely crept up on us. We were invited into the school to watch P1s class assembly. Since joining this school and especially since starting Year 1, she has completely blossomed. Every time we watch her at school she seems to grow with confidence. P1s assembly was about penguins and the South Pole. This is what she’s been …

Shoes for a Hyper Mobile Child with Pisamonas

Nothing in the world can prepare you for parenthood. No manual, no blog or person can ever truly describe what it is like to be a parent. They do give you a slight idea and a slight guidance. When P1 arrived into this world I didn’t expect her to be so ill. I certainly didn’t expect her to arrive seven …
