The Fantasy Box Review – Sex After Baby

When a slightly unusual email found its way into my inbox, I had a little giggle inside then thought it would be a fun thing to accept. The Fantasy Box arrived through my door, in discreet outer packaging, not long after. I felt slightly nervous about the post, the reaction and the actual reviewing of the box with its contents …

“I had made the definite decision not to cosleep with P3”

Cosleeping with P2 was not a conscious decision that we’d made. It just happened and we managed to get more sleep despite having a leg in our ribs or our eyes getting poked out. We coslept for around a year on and off. Although it worked for us, I had made the definite decision not to cosleep with P3 under …

“Having just one child is like going on holiday”

The first weekend of every month we have just P3. The other two go off for a weekend with my Mum. These weekends are strange for so many reasons. One thing that always comes up is that there is always a moment when hubby says “so this is what life would be like with just one”. Hubby was thrown in …

3 Easy Recipes For Children’s Lunches With Bernard Matthews

When P1 first started school she was a packed luncher. She loved it but I absolutely hated trying to find new, filling ideas to put in them each day. She ended up eating chocolate spread sandwiches, some fruit and crisps each day. So as soon as the Government gave free school meals for Key Stage 1, we switched to school …

A Princess For A Princess #hairglowrapunzel

The Disney film Tangled holds a special place in my heart. One of the first things my Hubby ever said to me was that he had been told he looked like Flynn Rider and then P1 began to say that he looked like Flynn. It was funny little joke between us and so when we were offered to review the …

Talking About Sleep With Arla Big Milk #BigSteps

I am beginning to think I should be editing the caption of my blog to “A Blog From The Heart Of A Sleep Deprived Mum” because quite frankly, that’s all I seem to be blogging about lately. Sleep is a sore subject for me and that’s due to the lack of it. When I read back on when P1 was …

How To Make An Angel Outfit From A Pillowcase

When I googled how to make P2s nativity costume I was surprised to actually be stuck for finding any tutorials. It was probably the places I was looking or I’m just a blind bat, but I took Pinterest photos for inspiration and made it up as I went along. I am actually so pleased with the result, she’s an Angel …

“I’ve decided to take part in the Vlogmas hype”

I can’t believe we are actually in the run up to Christmas now. I feel like this year has gone so quickly!! Last year I made the girls a Santa sack each although I still haven’t finished P1s which is really awful of me. Seeing as I’m actively delving into the world of YouTube I’ve decided to take part in …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 14 Months

To my Princess 3, Wow, 14 months! I know I say this every single time but your babyhood is going so quickly and it feels like each time I blink you are doing something new. I have started to stop referring to you as a baby because you are now walking. It is very rare that you crawl and I …

My Christmas Wish List 2015

I have been putting off my Christmas list this year because I have already told anyone who has asked the things I’d really like, a duvet set and clothes mainly, so there didn’t seem a need to write a post. But I’ve been reading other wish lists and gift guides and have seen a few things that I’d love to …

Why Do Babies Cry?

Babies: For newborns, crying is their main way of communicating. Toddlers: Toddlers cry because they’re hungry, tired, uncomfortable or need affection – just like babies. Preschoolers and school-age children: Children tend to cry less as they get older. Once they can talk, it’s much easier for them to tell you why they’re upset and what they need. Why do we …

Mamas & Papas, Joules & Little Green Radicals – A Kids Clothing Haul

I must confess that I don’t really buy P2 or P3 any new clothing. The clothing they wear each day are either second hand, gifted by family or friends and hand me downs from P1. This month has been an exciting one for P2 and P3s wardrobes. We’ve been lucky to receive some gift cards and clothes to review that …
