Leap Day 2016 – Fresh Air At Coolings Nature Trail

Every four years we gain a day. A leap year. This year marks our youngest daughter turning 17 months. Social media was filled with posts about making the most out of the extra day but I personally was ready to spend my day being a slob. Then the guilt came over me and we decided to head to the Nature …

An MRI Scan On A 3 Year Old

I really love the Timehop app sometimes. It reminds you of the insignificant events of your life and the really important ones that you shouldn’t forget but do. A few days ago it showed me a status where I was feeling apprehensive about the MRI scan my eldest had to have. It was four years ago today.  The photos in …

Britax DUALFIX Car Seat Review

As part of being a Britax Mumbassador, I have been given the Britax DUALFIX car seat to review and share with you guys. On first impressions the DUALFIX looks super modern and funky. It is also quite large and very heavy. So we move onto the technical side of things. The DUALFIX is a Group 0+/1 car seat which means it is …

My Sunday Photo 2016 #9/52

We were up and out the door this morning for 9:30am to drop P1 off for her first service as a Brownie. It was the divisions Rededication Service and we were invited to go along and watch. I hadn’t realised it didn’t start for 45 minutes after we dropped P1 so we reluctantly decided just to pick her up at …

The 3rd Time Of Moving From Cot To Bed

P2 was just 15 months old when we moved her from cot to bed, or mattress on the floor to be precise. I don’t remember when I moved P1, I’m pretty sure she was much older. I thought we had plenty of time before it would be P3s turn but that time came and on the 23rd February she came …

Pampers #SagGoneGrooveOn

A saggy nappy. We all know them. The type that hangs off your baby’s hips, dangling soggy and wet between their legs. It is making me cringe just thinking about it. I have OCD when it comes to nappies. It has to be on just so or I am forced to redo it, five times if need be. I have …

She’s A Brownie

I popped P1s name on the waiting list for our local Rainbows group when we moved over to Sevenoaks. Over two years ago now. Just before Christmas we had confirmation that she had a place. Then a few weeks later we were contacted about a place in the Brownies group. As P1 is now 7 years old she was in …

JOHNSON’S 3 Steps To Better Sleep

If you are a long term reader of my blog you will know that sleep is not my best friend. I had 19 months of broken sleep with P2 before we introduced P3 to the mix and it now equals to 3 years of broken sleep. So my experience of sleep certainly hasn’t been a good one and when JOHNSON’S …

Sow & Grow with Innocent Drinks

We had such a lovely time at Fruit Towers back in August that when Innocent invited us along again we just couldn’t say no. All five of us headed into London on Tuesday to have some lunch at the headquarters of where my girls favourite drinks are thought of. I The journey was very straight forward but rather stressful with …

10 Reasons Why I’m Not Having Any More Children

We were never sure whether to stay with two or venture into the world of three children. Three seemed scary and now that I physically have three little humans I am 100% sure that I’m not having any more children. I know that is probably a bit of a negative statement to make, especially at just 23 years old but …

Siblings 2016 – February

Literally just last night we entered a new phase in their sibling journey, sharing a room together. Ok, P1 and P2 have shared for about two years now and that has gone so well but yesterday we swapped the rooms around and now all three girls are sharing one bedroom. One bit of space. In an ideal world, P1 would …

Numberbundle Review

Parent consultation evening a few weeks ago really opened my eyes to the struggles P1 has academically. Numberbundle contacted me a few weeks ago and I was super excited about the concept but never got round to actually doing it with P1. Then this week the school had their opening evening where we were able to go into her class and …

How I Manage Bath & Bedtime With 3 Children

If you’ve been a long term reader of my blog you’ll know that bath times have always been something I dread. At the moment we don’t actually have a bath, our rented property just has a shower which is perfect for me when I need to get dressed quickly but for a family with three young children, it’s hard. I …

Our Weekday Morning Routine

My weekdays are busy. There’s always something I need to be doing with one or all three of my girls. I’m lucky that more often than not my Hubby does the actual running kids to school or nursery but I’m the one who prepares. He just gets himself up, washed and dressed. Here’s what a typical school/nursery run morning looks …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – 6/52

This weekend has been all about our middle girls birthday. It’s really lovely that it’s fallen on a Saturday as we have been able to spend time properly celebrating as a family. Today P2 is continuing her birthday treats with a theatre adventure with her Nannie meaning I’ve had some time to do some art with P1. It was really …
