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 …

A Fun Day Out At The Brewery Romford

On Sunday we escaped the hustle and bustle of normal family life and dropped the girls in various directions. P1 had a party to attend so she went round to her best friends, and P2 & P3 went to my MiLs. We headed for a day date at The Brewery Romford. We’d been invited along to see what the shopping …

Celebrating The New Year On Holiday

I have been getting quite anxious about Christmas. I am so desperate to make this year one to remember for the girls as it is the first Christmas where they are all aware of the fun and able to get involved. Our Christmas shopping is very nearly completed, we have a few bits left to get and family presents but …

“The reality is I’ve been in my onesie all day sitting on the sofa”

Although I’m posting this today, Tuesday, I’m actually writing it yesterday. Confusing but I wanted to publish this yesterday but the video which is hopefully now below took literally all day to load to my computer. Blooming technology. As I’m writing this there’s a faint sound of snoring, I can hear Hubby downstairs watching YouTube videos and I’m sinking into …

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 …

“P3 stared at him warily”

Wednesday’s are always one of our busier days but at the same time it’s quite a pleasant day as P1 goes to an after school club. This week we invited my Grandad over. When my Grandad travels the 40 odd miles from his house to ours, I always worry that he’s coming such a long way and we never really …

LEGO Duplo Fire Station Review

For some very odd reason fire stations, and fire engines have been appearing in our life; P2 had a lesson at nursery about them and P1 went on a little visit to the local one with school this week. So it was quite a happy coincident to get the LEGO Duplo Fire Station delivered to our house. The LEGO Duplo …

We’re Getting Christmassy

Halloween is now well out of the way and so the shops, TV adverts and blogs have fast become Christmas obsessed. So here I am doing my part to the Christmas hype. It’s just over a month until Christmas and that thought scares me. I am so incredibly excited for Christmas but we haven’t really done anything in terms of …

Siblings November 2015

Family dynamics are changing. Our littlest is walking and causing lots of disruption. P1 loves that her baby sister is now able to play and the games they play are much more varied. However, P2 is struggling to come to terms with the situation. Her baby sister is now even more into destroying her games than ever before. Today we …

“I was bound to crack at some point”

Every so often, usually around when my period is due and I’m a hormonal wreck anyway, I have a mini breakdown where I feel useless and like I am failing. The girls have been slowly tearing away at me for a few weeks now and I was bound to crack at some point. Yesterday this happened. It was just after …

Dreaming Of A Family Holiday

Whether you are a mum or not, you will know that parenting is exhausting. Even on a really good day when you are having a win moment, it is exhausting! Today was not a day full of win moments unfortunately. In fact, the past week has been totally draining. The kids are spending most of their time doing their best …

#BEDN – 12 – Your Local Area

I absolutely adore the area we live in. It is ranked at one of the richest towns in the UK which isn’t surprising and that theme sort of runs through the entire area. The health services are far more efficient and superior to the ones back in my home town, Essex. The schools are much better and that was one …

Musical Fun With Moo Music Sevenoaks

I thought I hated Autumn. I thought I hated the wind, rain and chilly weather. Actually this Autumn, for the first time ever I am embracing it and think that it is actually such a beautiful season. The colours are just so magical to watch beneath your feet and watching the leaves float from the trees is so soothing. But …
