SMA® Nutrition “Come & Wean With Us™” & Competition

When I wrote my first post for the SMA Nutrition Come & Wean With Us campaign a few weeks ago, P3 was quite happily plodding along in her weaning journey with little struggles if I’m honest. Since then our weaning journey has changed quite significantly. P3 is learning to feed herself completely, when I say completely I really do mean it. Everything …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 13 Months

To my Princess 3, You still look so much like a baby to me yet your personality is growing older by the day. You’re 13 months and there’s no hiding you are far from that tiny little newborn you once were. Since your birthday you have taken more and more steps. You’ll nearly walk the whole length way of our …

SMA® Nutrition “Come & Wean With Us™”

Weaning can be such a scary stage of development for any parent but I believe specifically if you are a new mum with no previous experience. That’s why I have teamed up with SMA Nutrition to be part of a blogging team that is there to support and guide you through the tough, exciting and messy times of weaning along with celebrity …

My First Pizza from Little Dish A Review

We eat pizza a lot in this family. Pizza (and pasta and cheese) are always available and are my “go to” food for a quick meal when time is rushed or the kids are screaming the house down where I’ve forgotten the time and it’s nearly bed time but their tummy’s are hungry. We very rarely order a takeaway pizza …

#innocentFiveADay Fruit & Veg Fest and A Competition

I was up, showered and basically dressed before my three daughters and hubby had even opened their little eyeballs Tuesday. I always hate it when this situation occurs. It’s like I’m breaking the law of sleep and should be severely punished but it was all for a good cause. Innocent Drinks had invited the girls and me up to Fruit …

Mindful Eating Challenge

Last week we embarked on a mindful eating challenge. We were given the challenge by Legal and General who organised a five day recipe box to help us on our journey. Every single day of our lives we cook things that are convenient without giving it a second thought. So many times I’ve wanted to change the way we eat …

American Inspired Staycation – #SantanderStaycation

Funny enough, P1 has just returned from a holiday, a full 9 days with her Grandparents. She stayed in the UK this time in a beautiful place in Gloucester. I am so jealous of her little trip away because we have put off a big, long family holiday for nearly three years. The main reason of course is the price. …

My Sunday Photo – 16/08/2015

One of my new friends over here in Sevenoaks invited me to her daughter’s Christening. I felt so honoured to receive an invite to not only the ceremony but the little lunch afterwards. A couple of weeks before the Christening my friend asked if I could take a couple of photos of her family for her on the day which …

Eating Out With Kids At Cafe Rouge Bluewater

We were invited along to try out the new kids menu at our local Cafe Rouge last weekend. I’ve only ever experienced a breakfast at Cafe Rouge whilst holidaying in CenterParcs so I was extremely excited and totally nervous about dining out with all three children. Going to a restaurant is certainly when hubby and I feel the strain the …

Persil Cook With The Kids

P1 wants to be a chef. She loves cooking, baking and everything in between. I hate cooking with children. Baking I can just about manage but cooking a meal is normally a no go situation. I hate the mess it creates when children are involved and it’s made even worse when they never listen to instructions. But I braved it when …

My Sunday Photo – 26/07/2015

I went through Primary School with a very small group of close friends. Twins and another girl. Although I was friendly with everyone there was the usual divide of the popular kids, the normal kids and the ones that had no friends at all. I was probably, I hope, in the middle neither popular or unpopular. When it came to …

“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. It’s how we helped her to lose her dummies that she was so addicted to last year and that “cold turkey” approached …

Bernard Matthews – Mealtimes Games

“Stop playing with your food!” I remember being told as a child. I hear myself saying this to my own daughters countless times a day, especially whilst P2 moisturises her hands and face in yoghurt or baked beans. Well what if playing with your food was allowed? Bernard Matthews challenged me to come up with 3 different games that the …

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 …

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 …
