“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 It’s been replaced by sniffling, grunting and the sound of her baby babbles.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 …

Siblings February 2015

It’s only the second month of our Siblings journey and I’m already struggling to find positions to get the girls in together. I’ve heard the saying “never work with children or animals” and my goodness it’s so true! We’ve recently changed their bedroom slightly, giving them space to play and move around. Removing the wardrobe seems to have made things …

Potty Training with Huggies – Review

The responsibilities that come with creating your own human is crazy. Right from the word go. We grow them, not just in the womb but beyond. As a parent we are responsible for how they speak, whether they speak one or two languages. We are responsible for teaching them to smile, to stick out their tongues, to play, to sit …

To My Princess 2 – 2 Years

To my Princess 2, I’ve been a little emotional this month as we’ve counted down the days until your 2nd birthday. These two years have gone ridiculously quick but it feels like such a long time ago that you were that podgy little baby at the hospital. You have such an amazing character. You’ve always been so hilarious in the …

Nonabox January 2015 Review

I’m pretty excited that the Nonabox have allowed me to review again this year. There’s nothing that beats the element of surprise each month and I have to be honest that my hubby has started to rush to the package to see what’s inside. January’s Nonabox has been slightly disappointing again if I’m completely honest. It’s not that the products …

How To Cook Easy Fajitas with Bernard Matthews Turkey Breast Chunks

I’m really enjoying being a part of the Bernard Matthews Family Panel, I’m even featured alongside the other parent bloggers which is super exciting. Our most recent challenge was to create a quick and simple family dish using Roast Breast Turkey Chunks and with everyone pretty poorly here it was fantastic to be able to rustle something up pretty quickly. Armed …

To My Princess 3 – 4 Months

To my Princess 3, It seems to be flying by! I need to apologise to you. This month we’ve found out that you have a tongue tie and its left me feeling very guilty and upset that we didn’t even check. Nobody did. Even when you were struggling to gain weight! We’ve been referred to the hospital next month for …

Potty Training P2

I toilet trained P1 when she was 3 years and 3 months old. It took just two weeks for her to be completely dry during the day, and from the start of toilet training to this date P1 has never wet herself during the night. Touch wood! I was lucky, she was older and able to completely communicate with me. …

My New YouTube Channel – Vlogging

When I started my blog in 2013, I began vlogging. I’d basically read out whatever I had put in a post and it was all a little pathetic. I’ve recently been following and subscribing to a few YouTube channels as I’ve found them and have been really enjoying it all. I’ve started to film a lot of my reviews. Showing …
