Nuna REBL Car Seat Review

It can get a little confusing when you have a baby. All the different products, technologies and safety requirements that come from the responsibility of having a baby. I remember when P1 was born and I wasn’t allowed to leave the hospital without the nurses checking that she’d been safely fitted into her car seat. Things have changed slightly since …

My Sunday Photo – 02/08/2015

So we have survived the first week of the summer holidays. It’s been a tough one if I’m completely honest but we are there at the end about to head into the second week. We’d planned not to do much other than the appointments we had scheduled and some Gymboree sessions in the first week. The girls have to adjust …

“My hair is falling out”

I didn’t necessarily decide to have long hair. It just grew and I’m awful for attending hairdressers. I’ve been once a year sometimes less since having children. But I didn’t think I’d ever be sitting in the position I currently am. My hair is falling out. I expected hair loss after pregnancy. It happened with P2 leaving me with an …

Persil Cook With The Kids

P1 wants to be a chef. She loves cooking, baking and everything in between. I hate cooking with children. Baking I can just about manage but cooking a meal is normally a no go situation. I hate the mess it creates when children are involved and it’s made even worse when they never listen to instructions. But I braved it when …

Crafty DIY For All The Family

Let’s face it, DIY jobs around the house aren’t actually that fun! In fact, they are more of a chore that you leave on a list of things that need doing for as long as you possibly can.    With the kids off school for summer these jobs are just going to get put off for even longer! Firstly you …

#PampersPooface – Cotton Wool VS Pampers Sensitive Wipes

As a parent we can pretty much guarantee when our children are about to or doing a poo just by looking at their facial expression. Pampers have recently released a hilarious video that celebrates that pooface and it is so super cute! It’s funny because I really do remember P1 and P2 having a pooface, they still do now, but …

“Finally we have a preschool placement”

I have been desperate to get P2 into a nursery or preschool. She’s been on four different lists. It feels like such a long time since we put P2s name on the first nursery and preschool waiting list. This week we have finally been offered a nursery place for our beautiful 2 year old. Finally we have a preschool placement! …

Boba 4G Baby Carrier Review – Slumber-Roo Brand Ambassador

During 2015 I am a Slumber-Roo Brand Ambassador. We have already helped to give our feedback on one baby carrier and now I’m going to introduce you to the next one. The Boba 4G. I stopped baby wearing when the weather was absolutely sweltering but now it’s cooled down a lot I’ve been using the Boba 4G more frequently. The …

“We’ve slipped back into a horrible routine”

I had hoped to be writing a post about how well P2 was doing with giving up milk. We decided about two weeks ago that we needed to cut it out completely to start with. Like an addiction. It’s how we helped her to lose her dummies that she was so addicted to last year and that “cold turkey” approached …

My Sunday Photo – 19/07/2015

We have been spending loads of time lately doing things as a family. I think as they all start getting older things are becoming much easier when we go out. Yesterday, we headed to Eynsford Water Ford where we went when we had the heatwave but we didn’t get to take P1. Hubby had ordered, from the request of P2, …

Our Stay At Premier Inn & A Peppa Pig World Day Out

I have no idea what it is about Peppa Pig but she has addictive qualities. P1 was just as obsessed as P2 is now. P2 watches probably on average 10 episodes each day whether it’s on the iPad or in the telly. It’s crazy. I suddenly realised that she’d probably be old enough to enjoy Peppa Pig World at Paultons …

“Separation anxiety has consumed P2!”

Have you heard of children experiencing separation anxiety? I have but I’ve never truly experienced it until now. To be honest I think it’s been creeping upon us for a while. I first witnessed the terror myself when P2 panicked and cried because she couldn’t see me amongst the mummy’s on the playground. I had her in complete view but …

I have never ever ever had a travel high chair or booster seat so was really interested to see how I would put the Babymoov Up & Go Booster Seat through it’s paces as for the previous 6 years I have never needed one. We’ve had it for a few months now and I’m pleased to say that we are …
