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 …

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 …

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 …
