    Mess free creativity with little Brian’s chalk and paint sticks: review

    For the last 6 months I have noticed more and more that Ava is loving crafting . She will sit at her desk In the front room for ages creating things. Which is fine with me as I actually enjoy doing crafting with her . I don’t really worry about the mess too much . Sometimes though I need something I can pack away quickly that Isn’t too messy . This is where paint and chalk sticks come in. Paint sticks are like nothing I have ever used before . Think of painting with a glue stick . It’s that kind of soft gliding sensation when your painting on the…

    Getting creative with Stabilo : Round up

    You have probably guessed by now that we like to get crafty. Everyday Ava asks to get her pens out and do some drawing. She will sit for ages in complete silence and create a masterpiece. The lovely people over at Stabilo have sent us some of their products for Ava to try out. The first product that caught my eye was their Cappi 12 fibre tip pens. Ava uses felt tips all the time. She isn’t the best at keeping the pen on the paper sometimes she does draw on her hands. Why do kids do this ! She will do it and then come over to me and…

    BabyLeds Spreads : review

    I have recently found myself getting in a bit of a rut with the food I’m feeding Alby. This is mainly because Ava is such a fussy eater so I tend to cook things I know she will eat. Being back at work means I’m tired of an evening and if I can prevent a toddler meltdown over food then I will. However this has started to really impact on what Alby is eating as I just tend to cook him the same meals as Ava is having. I know, I know I should really be trying to make her eat a ;

    Using B-sensible sheets when taking away the night time nappy with my toddler

    A couple of months ago now we started potty training with Ava. It has gone so well. I think in the last two months we have only had maybe 2 accidents. I started to notice that her night-time nappies were dry when she woke up in the morning. She also started to ask for a wee as soon as she woke in the morning. So I started to think about not using a nappy on a night-time. The lovely people over a B-sensible have sent us a waterproof fitted sheet and two waterproof pillow cases to try . I’m going to be honest when they said waterproof bedding all I…

    Leesa mattress unboxing and review

    Since becoming a parent I have learnt that sleep is so important. If I don’t get a good night’s sleep I really find the next day a struggle. The amount of sleep I now have is less than ever before. Ava generally sleeps through the night and Alby wakes about once. Which yes I know is really good but where as my days used to start at say 9 they now start at 6. I used to not be able to function with less than 8 hours solid sleep. Now if I get 8 hours solid sleep I feel like a new woman ready to take on the world. To…

    Chicco Hoopla baby bouncer : review

    We have recently been sent the Chicco Hoopla baby bouncer to review from Kiddies Kingdom . I know what you’re thinking a bouncer but your youngest is 8 months old . Well this bouncer isn’t just for babies it can be used with children up to 18kg as a chair . Now you know I’m a lover of products that have multiple uses. So this is a big plus for me. We did have a bouncer for Alby when he was younger but he really didn’t like it. I’m not sure why as it was the same one we had for Ava and she loved it. The Chicco Hoopla  baby…

    aidie London Navy blue baby moccasins- Review

    I am a big lover of shoes this is something I have passed onto Ava for sure. Whenever we go into a shop she goes straight to the shoes and picks them up straight away. Normally saying they are cute and asking for them. However I do make sure that I only buy Ava shoes that are good for her feet. As some of you may know we have had issues with her feet and her walking. After seeing a physiotherapist they explained to me that shoes with flat soles and ones that are not too structured are best for kids. They don’t actually need these structured shoes that a…

    A few weeks ago on insta stories I told you that I had some exciting news but I wasn’t ready to tell everyone yet . As I didn’t want to jinx it . Well I could have told you because it all went downhill. Just under a month ago we sold our house we were so excited and straight away got looking for a house to buy . Both my parents and Jordan’s mom had said if we needed a stop-gap we were more than welcome to spread ourselves between them so we didn’t lose the sale of the house. Plus if we timed it all well we would
