Our New Family Car

We’ve been in Kent for just over two years now. Right at the very beginning I was wrapped up in the death of my Nan, unpacking our belongings, P1 starting a new school and P2 becoming more and more mobile. I didn’t get out and about very much to explore and so came the decision to sell my beautiful 2009 …

My Sunday Photo – 04/10/2015

Last Sunday I was waking up, granted it was super early, in a huge king sized bed with the sounds of birds singing. Fields and trees as our view. This morning I’ve had a full night of cosleeping with P3, I can hear cars and see buildings. I’m feeling grumpy today. Agitated. It’s through lack of sleep and I’ve only …

Barbie Rock ‘n Royals Review

Barbie has been around my whole entire life and they have certainly come a long way since then too. P1 has a huge collection of various Barbie’s who are mostly naked with scraggly hair now. The technology side of things has also improved and P1 especially loves watching all the fantastic movies that come out. The latest one is the …

5 Benefits Of Sensory Play

Think about your favourite memories. How many of these have a particular colour, smell or sound associated with them? The smell of a crackling barbecue in the summer or the roar of the crowd when your favourite football team scores a last-minute winner, are two examples. Our brains trigger flashbacks to those happy times as soon as our nostrils or …

Siblings September 2015

All of my close friends have boys or at least one of each. I have girls. Three girls, three hair styles to create and at the moment three dresses. There’s going to be four sets of “the time of the month’s” and makeup, shoes and boyfriends. My girls really are very different to one another. P1 is slim, wobbly and …

“We took an obligatory first day at nursery photo”

P2 has been ready for nursery for a while and it feels like such a long time since we joined various waiting lists. I needed to give her more than I could offer. For her to build friendships and grow her independence and confidence.  To follow some structure as she learns more and more about the world she lives in. …

Being Busy & Thinking Ahead

We’ve successfully completed the first full week back to our school routine, although I’m still not quite used to the early mornings and I keep sleeping through the alarms that were switched off for six weeks leaving us pretty rushed every morning. Having a set routine seems to help P1s behaviour though and she’s been really good up until the …

Teaching My Daughter About Money With thinkmoney

We were recently challenged by thinkmoney to decorate a piggy bank but to also think about what financial advice we want our girls to carry with them until they’re older. I was certainly never good with money and spent my very early “grown up” life in debt and borrowing money from my Grandad constantly. Meeting my hubby changed things, he …

To my Princess 2, You are now 2 years and 7 months old, well three days ago you were any way. This past month you’re vocabulary has come on leaps and bounds.

Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Smart Stages Scooter Review

My mind has turned to a certain little persons birthday that is fast approaching us. At the end of the month my youngest baby girl will be turning 1!
