A Sleepover At My Grandad’s

Just over a week ago hubby had planned a trip to see his Nan who had just had an operation. It meant that I was going to be home for a couple of days (one night) on my own with the three girls. Part of me was excited and part of me dreaded it. So hubby suggested that I go …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #14/52

Please accept my apologies for the late posting and the different styled featured post for this weeks My Sunday Photo. I am staying at my Grandad’s for a few nights with the girls and I haven’t been able to get my internet working on the laptop which is highly frustrating. It’s the first time I’ve slept over his house since …

10 Places To Visit In Kent This Easter Holiday

It’ll be three years in September since we moved our family from Essex to Kent. We hoped for a better life for the girls and since being here I honestly believe that we are. Although there are some amazing places to visit in Essex for families, I have found the range of different things over in Kent so much more exciting. …

Our Good Friday 2016

I needed a good day and what better day than Good Friday. My day started super early, around 5:45am. We were eager to get out with the new double pushchair and also desperate to get some milk as we barely had enough for the night before. So I made breakfast and shoved some clothes on us all so we could …

#LightTheArch With EE

In September 2013, ICT (Information and Communications Technology) was replaced by Computing. When I was at school our ICT lessons were all about creating Word Documents or painting a picture using Paint. But now children as young as 5 are being taught at such a more complicated level. At just Key Stage 1, they will learn to do things like …

Doctor Google Is Not Your Friend

I went to bed last night with a banging headache. I can only think I am subconsciously worrying. Either that or I was utterly exhausted from the day. It started early with a pretty relaxed walk to school with P1 and P3. Of course that didn’t go without dramas as P1 fell flat on her face and made her hand …

4 Unusual Easter Gifts

It’s that time again – when we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus by eating twice our own body weight in chocolate. The giving and receiving of chocolate Easter eggs has been a tradition for more than 100 years. So this year, why not forget the tradition and rather than an egg, give your loved ones an unusual Easter gift? Don’t …

Embracing My Middle Daughter

I frequently forget to focus on all the great things my girls do. Instead getting fixated on the bad, the naughty behaviour or habits they have. Stuck in the same rut of routine and the battle of bedtime. But it’s the start of our Easter holidays, well for P2 anyway as her nursery always breaks up a week earlier than …

What’s In Our Easter Basket?

Being a parent blogger where you are in a community of inspiring people it’s hard not to get excited when it comes to big events in the year. Over the past three years I have seen a new tradition of hampers or baskets being created around Christmas, Valentine’s, Easter and Halloween and each time I have good intentions to join …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #12/52

As you can guess by the lateness of my My Sunday Photo post, our Sunday has been pretty boring. Pretty much all day we have been relaxing with Netflix and gathering energy for the next few days of yet more walking to school. P1s day was probably the most exciting. She had a trampoline party to attend which she really …

The Mum’s Guide to Father’s Day

Over the last 50 years, there’s been a real shift in how things work in the home. Previously, women (mostly) stayed in the house and men went out to work – but, as we know, that pattern is changing dramatically. Nowadays, both partners are responsible for childcare, chores and errands. More than 200,000 British fathers are stay-at-home-dads, and a great …

My girls have very important jobs within my blog. They are the ones that inspire and make it what it is. The ones that give me the bad nights of sleep and the proud school performances. They are what make Life With Pink Princesses. Above all their most important job is to try out all the wonderful items we get …

Siblings 2016 – March 2016

Being a member of a 3 part sister bond must be extremely hard. There’s always someone to fight against for attention, for cuddles and generally with each other. I worry daily about their relationships with each other. Part of me feels that P1 is pushed aside due to school, that she doesn’t get very much time with her sisters to …
