“Separation anxiety has consumed P2!”

Have you heard of children experiencing separation anxiety? I have but I’ve never truly experienced it until now. To be honest I think it’s been creeping upon us for a while. I first witnessed the terror myself when P2 panicked and cried because she couldn’t see me amongst the mummy’s on the playground. I had her in complete view but …

5 Things Made Easier With A Babymoov Up & Go Booster

I have never ever ever had a travel high chair or booster seat so was really interested to see how I would put the Babymoov Up & Go Booster Seat through it’s paces as for the previous 6 years I have never needed one. We’ve had it for a few months now and I’m pleased to say that we are …

A Special Moment In Time

I have quite a few moments in my life that are really special to me for different reasons. Meeting my Hubby, getting engaged, my wedding day, even my Nan’s funeral held special moments for me like me writing and reading a letter to her in front of everyone and the fact that the whole room was packed to the extent …

Letting The Children Make Lunch with Bernard Matthews

Meal times can be pretty boring. We all eat, three times a day or more. Children specifically get given their food laid out in front of them and they eat it, or throw it, mash it between their fingers, but usually they eat it. Then Bernard Matthews sent over their next Family Panel task and I was thrilled. Putting the …

Letter To My Princess 2 – 2 Years 5 Months

To my Princess 2, You are very nearly two and half years old. Zooming towards turning three and that’s just too scary to even contemplate. You’ve had two taster sessions at a preschool. It was a decision we felt was right for you as I’ve noticed you struggle to form relationships with other children outside of your family. You cross …

“We survived the hottest day of the year!”

Yesterday, 1st July 2015, marked the hottest July day in the UK so far. Temperatures soared to 36.7C in many parts of the UK. I checked my weather app regularly and the highest we saw in Kent was 34C. A crazy, dangerous temperature but I’m pleased to announce that we survived the hottest day of the year. As I’ve said …

Doona Review – The Older Baby

Lately, as I’ve been watching my chubby munchkin grow and thrive I have been wondering how we are going to cope without our Doona. I’m sure that she has plenty of time left in the Doona seeing as it’s weight limit is 13kg and P2 has only just hit that herself but the Doona has become a staple part of …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 9 Months

To my Princess 3, You have now officially been outside longer than you were tucked up inside my tummy. You are 9 months old. It’s crazy to think that in just a few months time we’ll be celebrating your first birthday. We’ll probably end up having a joint birthday/wedding anniversary/birthday celebration seeing as you arrived the morning after my own …

My Sunday Photo – 28/06/2015

I don’t really have any words this week to accompany My Sunday Photo. We’ve had a week of mixed emotions between all three of the girls. Happiness, worry and of course love. I took this photo of P2 yesterday whilst she was watching her sisters play with the cornflour gloop we’d made. I just love it.

Kids Fun At Home with I MUNE NURTURE

We’ve been experiencing some pretty awful behaviour with P1 lately. I’ve been doing a lot of research about it because I desperately want to help her to control and understand her emotions as well as understand them myself. This weekend I’ve especially been changing the things we do. Normally we like to use the weekend to recooperate after a busy …

Shmuncki Liberty Art Fabric Babygrow & Jacket Review

This time last week I was packing for BritMums Live and heading to London. P3 was kindly sent the Liberty Art Fabric Baby Girl Jacket and the Liberty Art Fabric Baby girl babygrow romper to wear whilst at BritMums Live. This made trying to find an outfit for her so much easier. She ended up being sent three lovely outfits …

Queen Of Hearts Cookie Company Review

I am really trying my best to cut my meal portions and stop snacking as much as I used to in a bid to lose the extra weight I’m carrying but also to be healthier inside. When the Queen Of Hearts Cookie Company contacted me to review some biscuits for them I was actually really excited. It was just before …

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 …

Fitbit Flex Review

When I started my weight loss journey I was a bit of a virgin to anything health related and I certainly wasn’t bothered by how many steps I took each day. Gradually I’ve watched my weight slowly come down and I’ve been feeling far more energised recently. I’ve been wearing a Fitbit Flex for nearly two months now and I …

My Experience of BritMums Live 2015

If you are in the blogging community, attended BritMums Live or like (god forbid) Best Buggy UK on Facebook then you will already know what I’m about to talk about. For those lucky ones who are blissfully unaware, on returning home from BritMums Live 2015 on Saturday it was made aware to me that I, along with a few other …
