5 Reasons Why I Love My Daughter’s Preschool Nursery

Picking a nursery, school or preschool is always a pretty daunting task when you are a parent. P1 went to a day nursery back when we lived in Essex, P2 went to preschool although it was called a nursery and P3 now goes to the same one. I hope this post maybe gives you an insight when you decide to …

Juggling A Special Needs Child With A Sibling At School Too

I actually drafted the title of this post a good few weeks ago, just after I had to juggle the need to be in two places at once for two different children of mine. But actually even more has happened since then. Since having two children in primary school and one in nursery, I have been really struggling to organise …

You Never Think It Will Be Your Child

Bullying is something that happens in every school. It’s a part of learning boundaries, personality clashes and bad behaviour. As a parent you hope that your child will never be bullied, that they are kind to everyone and that you never have to be called in to the Head Teacher because of an incident involving your child and someone else’s. …

Going To The Park With Bassetts Multivitamins #nodulldays

During the summer it is easy to get out and about with our children. The warm weather makes us want to be out in it exploring and going on adventures. As autumn sets in, the days get colder and the sun setting earlier gives us shorter daylight hours, getting outside becomes much more of a chore. The Department Of Health …

P2’s First Parents Evening

I just love how things are getting technology based and that you can now book parent evening slots online now! So much easier. We teased P2 about parents evening from the moment we booked it. We kept asking her whether her teachers would tell us that she’s been naughty and cheeky. Don’t worry, she found it funny. I had been …

Spending Time With My Girls

It’s been a weird day. One I want to cherish forever but also one that could quite happily be brushed under the doormat. My eyes opened to the usual cries for “Mummy” from one possibly two of the girls. It’s Sunday so I ushered both P2 and P3 into my bed, shoving Hubby further towards the wall so we could …

Her First Day At Preschool

I have read so many posts in the past week about parents feeling emotional about their children starting school. I’ve never been able to relate to that feeling, I’ve never really felt that emotional attachment to my children, the sentimental need to keep drawings. In fact I thought I had something wrong with me until today. I had little sleep …

You Are In Year 4

Over the past year or so we have been watching a brand new building arise from the old school playground. Each week something would change about it; bigger, the roof put on, windows going in, outer panelling on, new playgrounds created and then finally it was finished before the end of the last school year. The school was moved from …

P3 Had Her Introductory Session At Nursery/Preschool

I have been waiting for this day for such a long time. I was awake so early, getting organised, putting my makeup on and my clothes. Typically P2 and P3 didn’t wake until quarter to eight, like really?! Why didn’t they do this in the holidays?! Somehow we still managed to be a little rushed out of the door. So …

Back To School Dramas Sorted With Kickers!

Our beloved older daughter kindly reminded us a few days ago, with less than a week left until school begins, that her current school shoes were too tight for her. We’d been so consumed by the fact P2 was starting big school for the first time that we’d neglected the fact we had another one who was going up a …

Back To School With Smiggle

Back to school is literally just around the corner for us now. There’s a matter of days to get everything together; uniform, new shoes, coats and stationery sorted. The girls were really excited to receive a huge bundle of Smiggle stationery and back to school essentials when we returned from our holiday. We had actually popped into our local Smiggle …

Getting Organised For Starting Primary School & Giveaway

We have got a pretty busy summer holiday planned. There’s days out, mini breaks and play dates dotted about the entire time so I wanted to make sure I was organised the earlier part of the holidays with regards to back to school. It terrifies the heck out of me that I’ll have three little people to get organised. I …

Reflecting On The End Of Nursery For My Middle Baby

After experiencing being a working Mum with P1, I was fortunate enough to be able to make the decision to be a stay at home Mum with P2. I was going to be the one to watch her do all of those first things and be the one who had taught her. At some point during her first two years …

My Money Managing Tips

If you know me in “real life” then you will know that my husband is very strict on our budgeting and living costs. I used to think living for the moment was the best idea. I splashed out whenever I had any extra money or my work bonus, instead of thinking ahead about bills. But Hubby is much more sensible with money …
