Eating Out With Kids At Cafe Rouge Bluewater

We were invited along to try out the new kids menu at our local Cafe Rouge last weekend. I’ve only ever experienced a breakfast at Cafe Rouge whilst holidaying in CenterParcs so I was extremely excited and totally nervous about dining out with all three children. Going to a restaurant is certainly when hubby and I feel the strain the …

Climbing The Stairs At 10 Months

In January last year P2 climbed my MiLs stairs for the very first time. She was 11 months and 10 days old. It shocked us as she’d never made any indications that she wanted to climb anything. Today, at 10 months and 11 days old, P3 has climbed my MiLs stairs for the first time. I didn’t get to capture …

Becoming Domesticated & A Chance To Win Vanish Products

I have never been domesticated. In fact I am pretty sure that it is allergic to me, or the other way round as whenever I do start cleaning I sneeze and get puffy eyes. My bedroom was always a complete pig sty growing up. I was a typical teen that refused to tidy up the floordrobe, or the hundreds of …

Letter To My Princess 2 – 2 Years 6 Months

To my Princess 2, Two and a half years you have been in our lives. I say it all the time but time is really flying past and it feels like just yesterday that I met my chubby little monkey for the first time. You are so different from your older sister. You’re heavier, sturdier and much more laid back. …

My Friend Freddy Bear Review

At BritMums Live there is a chance to connect with brands face to face. It’s a fantastic way to really engage with someone especially when you recognise a PR team. But there was a stand that really caught my eye. A gigantic teddy and some friendly looking ladies. I approached and was introduced to My Friend Freddy Bear. I could …

“The six week holidays will help to boost my personal blogging”

Just before the summer holidays started there was plenty of talk in the blogging community of fellow bloggers going on a break over the school holidays. I sat there knowing that I most definitely wouldn’t be having a break from blogging ever. We are now in the middle of the second week of the school holidays and I’m already finding …

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 …
