I have to admit that dressing girls is a whole lot more fun than dressing boys. There just seems to be so much more fun stuff out there for girls, and they aren’t limited to just pants or trousers either . I mean, I have no objections to my son wearing skirts and dresses if he really wants to, but he really doesn’t so it’s not an option we explore much. Walk into a kids clothing store, or look online, and there are SO MANY bits and pieces I want to buy for the girls. When it comes to boys, I have to really search and more often than not the things I like are decidedly too ‘babyish’ now he’s the grand old age of eight. And because Bella and Elsie are so close in age and size, I literally cannot stop dressing them in matching outfits. Its so much fun! Here are my top three spring essentials for girls- I cannot wait to start clearing their wardrobes now! (more…)
We were recently sent a new and rather exciting product to test out over Christmas. the mifold car seat. On first glances, it doesn’t look anything like a traditional car seat and to be honest, at first Ghostwriterdaddy and I were a little confused… here are our initial thoughts on the mifold car seat- I’ll update you on when we return from our Christmas travels!
This car seat is billed as the ‘grab and go’ booster seat- ideal for journeys where you need to preserve as much room in the car as possible, or for play dates and impromptu pick ups. It’s ten times smaller than the average booster seat, but just as safe. Because of it’s size, it can fit easily into the glove box, or under the passenger seat for safe storage. It’s portable, so your child can take it to school with them if they’re off to a friend’s house for a play. It can easily fit in the back seat, thus eliminating the ‘how do we fit three car seats along the back’ problem. (more…)
The big day is almost upon us! I don’t; know about you, but I’ve personally been peeling the kids off the ceiling for weeks now. The excitement in this house has reached fever pitch and I’m not sure there’s anything I can do about it now! So as Christmas day approaches and I’ve finally finished work (HOORAY!) my thoughts are turning to Christmas dinner preparations. If you read this post, you’ll know that we don’t do the traditional ’12 people around a turkey’ Christmas day anymore. In fact, last year we made the decision to allow every person in our little family to choose their own Christmas dinner- 2016’s table was adorned with lasagne, pizza, hot dogs… Perfect. The thing is though, that I still want the little ones to have something of nutritional value for their dinner- especially seeing as there will be so many sweets and chocolates hanging around throughout the day. So I thought I’d share what’s on my toddler’s plate this Christmas. (more…)
I don’t know about you, but for me every single pregnancy has been different with my four. Apart from the nausea, that is. First time around I suffered for a couple of weeks so thought nothing of it at all, In fact throughout the entire pregnancy the only ailment I really remember was a bout of heartburn one evening towards the 40 week mark- pretty good going don’t you think? Pregnancy number two was a different matter entirely. I suffered from awful headaches, insomnia and extreme nausea- to the point where my sister-in-law very pointedly gifted me a pack of Sea Bands. I’d never heard of them, but I quickly came to rely on them to beat the nausea day in and day out. When it came to announcing pregnancies number three and four, most people already knew thanks to the tell tale bands on my wrists! And while I’ll admit that it was really only medication that helped in the end with my last pregnancy (read my posts Hyperemesis here), I can whole heartedly vouch for the power of Sea Bands for relieving the symptoms of nausea in pregnancy. I simply couldn’t have managed without them. Recently, Sea Bands have launched a new pregnancy toolkit with the help from experienced practising midwife, Gill Perks, and I’ve agreed to help spread the word. Honestly, Sea Bands are amazing for pregnancy related nausea- a natural and easy way to alleviate symptoms, so that you can re-calim your pregnancy superpowers! Read on to find out more, and to enter the giveaway to win a pair for yourself- I have five to give away! (more…)
