#PampersPooface – Cotton Wool VS Pampers Sensitive Wipes

As a parent we can pretty much guarantee when our children are about to or doing a poo just by looking at their facial expression. Pampers have recently released a hilarious video that celebrates that pooface and it is so super cute! It’s funny because I really do remember P1 and P2 having a pooface, they still do now, but …

“We’ve slipped back into a horrible routine”

I had hoped to be writing a post about how well P2 was doing with giving up milk. We decided about two weeks ago that we needed to cut it out completely to start with. Like an addiction.

My Sunday Photo – 19/07/2015

We have been spending loads of time lately doing things as a family. I think as they all start getting older things are becoming much easier when we go out.

Our Stay At Premier Inn & A Peppa Pig World Day Out

I have no idea what it is about Peppa Pig but she has addictive qualities. P1 was just as obsessed as P2 is now. P2 watches probably on average 10 episodes each day whether it’s on the iPad or in the telly. It’s crazy. I suddenly realised that she’d probably be old enough to enjoy Peppa Pig World at Paultons …

“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 …

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.
