Siblings May 2015

I asked P1 today what she thought about being a sister and her answer was just one word, fun! I realised that through all the problems we’ve been having with them individually, as sister’s they do spend a lot of time laughing. I want the three of them to be absolute best friends but right at the moment P1 and …

Parenting Three – 7 Months In

We are nearly 8 months in from becoming a family of five. Having three children has changed our family dynamics and the way we live quite drastically. It came as a bit of a shock when I first found out that we were expecting number three and it took me a while to really come to terms with it. We’d …

Journey To Fit with the Fitbit Flex

My fitness goal has really changed since I started my Healthy Habit with Juice Plus. When I first began I weighed 46.2kg and initially my journey was solely to lose some weight. Technically, my BMI was in the healthy range for my height so I didn’t really know how much I wanted to lose. I still don’t. In just over …

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 …

My Sunday Photo – 10/05/2015

I have taken a real back seat on the healthy eating and exercise thing which is certainly not what I wanted to do as I have a dress to fit in for a wedding in two weeks. But I have and I’m quite ashamed really. Yesterday, the postman delivered to me two exciting fitness related things for me; my new …

“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 …

McDonald’s Football Mum Of The Year Awards

We are yet to embark on the life of school clubs and other hobby related activities. P1 just isn’t that type of girl and certainly isn’t an active person due to her hypermobility. However, we were recently invited to a local Football Club to meet former Team GB Captain and Arsenal Ladies Defender Casey Stoney as part of the drive …

Mixing Up Play with Petits Filous #MagicSquaresPlaydates

Being a stay at home mum has changed me. I never intended to be a stay at home mum. I wanted to be a working mum and be a role model for my daughters but our circumstances changed. I feel completely privileged to have the opportunity to watch my three daughters grow and be the one they solely depend on …

Bumbo Floor Seat & Play Tray Review

One of our staple items for P2 when she was a baby was the Bumbo. It was also around the time when there was a uge media frenzy about them being so unsafe. Well we’ve been sent the new Bumbo Floor Seat & Play Tray to try out with P3 a little later in her development than I would have …

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 …

A Visit From The Tooth Fairy

P1 came home from school yesterday after being at her after school club. It was just after 6pm. Wednesdays are her longest days and sometimes I wonder how she physically copes with them but she enjoys it so much because her best friend goes. She got home and we gave her the brand new Barbie she has the task of …

The General Election & The MADS Blog Awards

So today, we packed the kids up and headed to our local polling station. I felt really nervous actually. I have no idea how the whole “politics” thing works and I certainly haven’t been following each party to know what they are promising. I woke this morning and had a quick look over each party’s websites to see if anything …

How Does Your Baby Self Settle?

At two years old, P2 is still waking in the night demanding milk on average twice a night. We’ve begun the “weaning” as such by reducing her intake during the day. She’s now limited to a cup in the mornings, not a bottle, and one 9oz bottle at night. I’m confident that she’s getting enough calcium as she’s having plenty …
