Easter Gifts For The Whole Family

AD | Gifted items Now that Erin is 3 she is really starting to understand more about celebrations and holidays. We have already had a few conversations about Easter as nursery have been doing things like painting chicks and eggs recently. I think this year Erin is going to be really excited about Easter this year and being the kind of child she is, she’ll want to make sure John and I have something too. So, with that in mind I wanted to share some Easter gifts for the whole family! Something I remember about both of our holidays in

Stikets Name Labels Review & Giveaway

AD | Paid partnership with Stikets & gifted items  Erin already goes to nursery for 3 days a week but after the Easter holidays she’ll be going up to 4 days thanks to her 30 hours of funding. Just the other week I noticed that some of the labels we had on Erin’s official nursery jumpers had fallen off in the washing machine. I needed to get something new to replace them, as well as to label some of the other items of clothing Erin wears to nursery on a regular basis. I recently teamed up with Stikets to review

Children’s Book Review: Circle

AD | Gifted Item One of John’s favourite times of day is Erin’s bedtime because it means that he can read with her. Today John is reviewing one of Erin’s newest books, Circle by Jon Klassen and Mac Barnett! Triangle and Square are visiting Circle, who lives at the waterfall. When they play hide-and-seek, Circle tells the friends the one rule: not to go behind the falling water. But after she closes her eyes to count to ten, of course that’s exactly where Triangle goes. Will Circle find Triangle? And what OTHER shapes might be lurking back there? Circle is

Guest Post: Mummy To Dex On Tackling Fussy Eating

For the longest time now Erin has been a fussy eater and it’s so frustrating sometimes. It’s nice to know I’m not alone though. Nicola from Mummy to Dex is here today talking about her own experience and sharing some things she has done to to help with tackling fussy eating. Dexter has always been a good eater, ever since he was born. I struggled to get him to breast feed, but he took to bottles really well and would drink 8oz every three hours, on the hour every day. When he turned six months, we chose to baby led

Children’s Book Review: Bear Moves

AD | Gifted item On average Erin will probably have 3-5 books at bedtime so we’re always looking for new titles to keep her interested in the stories. Today we’re looking at Bear Moves by Ben Bailey Smith and Sav Akyuz. Bear’s in a dancing mood, and his friend Bunny is happy to help out with the boom box. With moves like Furry Breaking, Running Bear (you run but don’t go anywhere), and the classic back spin, who could blame observers who might want to bust a move of their own? Bear Moves features the same crazy, fun loving, Bear

Places To Visit Before Your Child Starts Infant School

I can’t believe that in only a few months we’ll be applying for Erin’s place at an Infant school. We only have 18 months left to take advantage of being able to go anywhere with Erin no matter what time of year it is. There are a few places that I would love to take Erin before she starts school, mainly because I know it would be cheaper for us! (Images are from some other blogger’s reviews! Be sure to check them out) Disneyland Paris This is a bit of a biggie and I’m pretty sure we won’t be able

Happy 33rd Birthday To Me

Yesterday was my 33rd birthday. I actually had to think a little while back about how old I was going to be. I think especially since Erin was born I haven’t really paid too much attention to myself or my birthdays. When Erin asked me how old I was going to be she proceeded to tell me I was old so I guess it doesn’t really matter how old I really am any more now! Usually we don’t do anything at all for my birthday. This is the busiest time of year for John at work and he’s not really

Fuzzikins Fuzzi Babies Review

AD | Gifted items Keeping Erin busy and entertained on days when she isn’t at nursery can be quite tricky. Sometimes she has the attention span of a goldfish and only wants something quick and relatively easy to do before moving on to another activity. We were recently sent the range of Fuzzikins Fuzzi Babies for Erin to try. Fuzzikins Fuzzi Babies come in 3 options; monkey, hamster and lamb. Each pack contains a baby animal, matchbox bed, three colouring pens, a toy bear and 2 sheets of stickers. Erin couldn’t wait to get stuck in and she chose the
