Siblings March 2018

These two are too close this month, just too close! I think it’s a combination of a few things, from awful weather weekends keeping us inside a bit more than usual, the excitement of our upcoming holiday and Little Man being poorly a couple of times. All of these things …

Siblings February 2018

A new tradition has started in our house. Apparently, every Sunday is now Disney Day! The kids decided this two to three weeks ago, when we got our Disney World holiday countdown up and running. They tell me that as it is now this year that we are going, they …

It’s The Little Things That Count

I sit and write this at the end of a long day. Nothing too traumatic or dramatic, a common enough occurrence for any parent. Little Man has a sickness bug. As such, I’m running on about two hours of broken sleep and have been cleaning and taking care of him …

A 5 Step Guide to Child-Proofing Your Home

Whether you’re a well-established parent or a newcomer to our whacky (but wonderful) world, the safety of your young one(s) is imperative. Baby-proofing your home and ensuring your little one will be safe can seem a little overwhelming. But, there’s no reason to panic. We’ve put together a smart little …

Siblings January 2018

We had a brilliant Christmas break, a much needed fortnight off school for these two. We broke up quite late so they only had a couple of days off before the big day itself – it’d be fair to say that excitement levels were high! It actually worked quite well …

Meet the HiPP Buddies and the New Range!

As you know we’ve been working with the lovely team over at HiPP Organic sharing my reflections on the weaning days and this month they have a new savoury range out to shout about. Read on to meet the HiPP Buddies and the new range along with the chance to …

The School Run Mums

It’s a funny old thing, the school run. With Boo now in Year 3, I’m into my fourth year of doing them, and to be honest, they felt like old-hat two weeks in, so nowadays they are very familiar ground. Of course, with Little Man recently starting in Reception, it’s …

Siblings December 2017

Ah, the excitement levels in our house right now! And we still have over a week left at school as my two break up on the 22nd. Christmas is such a special time, and of course children get excited by it all. With my two, as one is excited, then …

Educational Fun with the Kids

Like many kids these days, my children love technology. They are growing up with it, it’s perfectly normal for them to use it and I suspect they will soon be surpassing me in finding their way around the latest gadgets. I’m pretty good, but I am from the generation that …

Siblings November 2017

Another month has rolled around! So what’s this last month brought to my pair of siblings? We’ve had half term, a welcome break and it was great to see the two of them enjoying each other’s company all week. It’s funny how quickly I’ve adjusted to not having my Little …

10 Eighties Movies That Your Kids Must See!

We love our films here. We have a family movie night every weekend, and I’d say that our kids have watched a fair few classics as well as the more recent releases and a whole raft of Disney pictures. As children from the eighties, the Husband and I have a …

Bassetts Vitamins Supporting Family Fun!

The summer is now a dim and distant memory. The darker days are drawing in and it’s definitely feeling chillier. The heating is on and it’s so tempting to just stay in and hibernate until the spring! I have always preferred summertime and the warmer months, and there’s no doubt …

Little Man’s First Parents Evening

Last week we went along to parents evening at the kids’ school. I was really looking forward to meeting with Little Man’s teacher. He tells me very little about his days, but what has delighted me is how happy he has been to go every single day since he started. …

An Energy Boost For The Holidays

Now that both of my children are at school, I have found that I’ve settled into something of a routine Monday to Friday each week, generally revolving around blog work, studying, the gym and housework. Yes, all the exciting things happen here! I am used to being alone for several …

Keeping A Birthday Journal

Today I am talking about keeping birthday journals, as this is something that I love doing for my children. What’s a birthday journal all about? Every year, after I put my kids to bed on their birthdays, I sit down and write in their birthday journal. It’s a keepsake that …
