An MRI Scan On A 3 Year Old

I really love the Timehop app sometimes. It reminds you of the insignificant events of your life and the really important ones that you shouldn’t forget but do. A few days ago it showed me a status where I was feeling apprehensive about the MRI scan my eldest had to have. It was four years ago today.  The photos in …

Britax DUALFIX Car Seat Review

As part of being a Britax Mumbassador, I have been given the Britax DUALFIX car seat to review and share with you guys. On first impressions the DUALFIX looks super modern and funky. It is also quite large and very heavy. So we move onto the technical side of things. The DUALFIX is a Group 0+/1 car seat which means it is …

Pampers #SagGoneGrooveOn

A saggy nappy. We all know them. The type that hangs off your baby’s hips, dangling soggy and wet between their legs. It is making me cringe just thinking about it. I have OCD when it comes to nappies. It has to be on just so or I am forced to redo it, five times if need be. I have …

She’s A Brownie

I popped P1s name on the waiting list for our local Rainbows group when we moved over to Sevenoaks. Over two years ago now. Just before Christmas we had confirmation that she had a place. Then a few weeks later we were contacted about a place in the Brownies group. As P1 is now 7 years old she was in …

10 Reasons Why I’m Not Having Any More Children

We were never sure whether to stay with two or venture into the world of three children. Three seemed scary and now that I physically have three little humans I am 100% sure that I’m not having any more children. I know that is probably a bit of a negative statement to make, especially at just 23 years old but …

Our Weekday Morning Routine

My weekdays are busy. There’s always something I need to be doing with one or all three of my girls. I’m lucky that more often than not my Hubby does the actual running kids to school or nursery but I’m the one who prepares. He just gets himself up, washed and dressed. Here’s what a typical school/nursery run morning looks …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – 6/52

This weekend has been all about our middle girls birthday. It’s really lovely that it’s fallen on a Saturday as we have been able to spend time properly celebrating as a family. Today P2 is continuing her birthday treats with a theatre adventure with her Nannie meaning I’ve had some time to do some art with P1. It was really …

Valentines Jam Heart Biscuits

I used to hate Valentine’s Day. I felt it was very commercialised and a date in the diary specifically for people to make money from. Surely if you love someone you should be showing them that each day, not just one day out of 365. But then I joined the blogging world and this year I’m making an effort to …

Breaking Her Milk Habit Before Her 3rd Birthday

At around 6 months of age a baby has the ability to sleep a full night of sleep. P1 was 10 months when she began to sleep an amazing 12 hour stretch. P2 is yet to reach that milestone and P3 exactly the same. They both have habits that need breaking.  A preschooler needs 11 hours of sleep plus a …

A Snowy Winter Morning

I woke up today to our little village being covered in a dusting of white. We’d had a few flakes yesterday evening and at 2am when P2 woke asking for her usual milk, which was refused, I saw out of the window the glow of the snow in the dark. I was so excited for morning to come but by …

“It sounds silly because shopping is such an ordinary thing”

Growing up I always spent time with my Grandparents. Just them and me. My Nan and my Grandad. We went to Scotland for holidays to visit my Grandad’s sister, we went to Somerset to visit Grandad’s friend on a farm he owned. I spent pretty much every afternoon after school with them. But now I rarely get quality time with …

“P1 is behaved at school and a crazy nightmare at home”

I’ve always loved the idea of home schooling. Having no early mornings for school runs and being able to spend time as a family doing the things we loved whilst educating and growing my daughters. But then we have school holidays, and they remind me exactly why I don’t and would never go down that route. There’s something wrong with …

Fluffy American Pancakes Recipe

I am guilty of opening up a batter mix sachet that costs just 30p and making up a batch of pancakes or yorkshire puddings. Pancakes are P1s absolute favourite breakfast and seeing as I am actually really enjoying baking and cooking recently, I decided to give some American pancakes a go today. Here’s the recipe for these yummy star shaped …

TUMTUM Bluebell Out & About Lunch Set Review & Competition

I am awful at forgetting to pack the girls snacks or food she we head out or for a short trip to the park. Then each and every time they moan that they’re hungry despite just having lunch. I never learn. I also think a contributing factor is that I’ve not had anywhere to store anything so when TUMTUM offered …
