A Thank You Teacher Gift & Goodbye To Year 1

I’ve never been one buys teachers gifts. I didn’t even get the nursery that P1 went to for three years a gift to say thank you. That’s how awful I am. I always mean to but then forget. This year, I opted out of the class collection as we wanted to get something for P1s teacher ourselves. I felt a …

What We Are Reading

Reading is so important to me through blogging and through my writing but it’s also something I want my children to enjoy and so far they all love books. P1 has started to read her own stories or at least give them a good go. P2 has finally started to sit still for a full story and P3 loves to …

” P2 has been on a waiting list to attend a preschool”

For the past 6 months P2 has been on a waiting list to attend a preschool. This wasn’t a decision that came lightly for us. The whole point of me being a stay at home mum and quitting my job nearly two years ago was so that I could be P2s primary carer. Considering I started my working life when …

Letter To My Princess 1 – 6 Years 6 Months

To my Princess 1, I’ve been really disappointed with your behaviour lately. To the point we’ve been to see the doctors because I know this just isn’t normal behaviour for a 6 year old. We have a few next steps and I hope that you are just in a very awful stage at the moment. You’ve been so doting on …

Binky Bear Goes To London Gift Set Review

As a child, I loved teddies and soft toys. My kids have certainly followed in my footsteps of their love for teddies and we have only recently given around 4 bin bags full away. When I was sorting the teddies out I had clear piles; TYs, Disney and memorable bears/teddies. We were recently asked to review the new Binky Bear …

“Along trotted this small, scruffy looking dog. In a preschool”

P2 has been on the waiting list for a preschool since January. I’ve soon come to realise that they are extremely sort after in this area and it’s clear that she probably won’t get a place until she’s nearer 3 years old. We decided to add her to a couple of the waiting lists. Not because we’re impatient but purely …

Barbie Rainbow Makeover Hair Doll Review

We’ve been having a bit of a difficult week with P1. It always happens after she’s been away for a weekend so when we received the Barbie Rainbow Makeover Hair Doll I was debating about whether she really deserved it. I’m glad I did give in though as it was also the day that her first ever tooth fell out …

Parragon Book Buddies – Growl With The Animals Review

When I arrived for my first ever BritMums Live in 2014 I was completely overwhelmed by it all. Then when I saw the Parragon stall with ginormous cupcakes (I was pregnant with P3 at the time) I started to feel much more comfortable. I’ve always been a lover of books and with technology taking over our lives I still want my …

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 …
