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

Playmobil Easter Eggs Review

AD | Gifted items This is the first year that Erin is really starting to show an interest in Easter. She has already sussed out where the Easter eggs are in the supermarket and she might have had a couple already! Instead of being all about the chocolate we want to make Easter fun for Erin and that means finding her some non-edible gifts. Playmobil kindly sent us their range of eggs! The range consists of 4 different eggs and what is really great is that they are not aimed at specific genders. The eggs are aimed at children aged

7 Great Outdoor Days Out In Norfolk

AD | We received press tickets to some of these locations Before moving to Norfolk I can honestly say I really wasn’t much of an outdoorsy type. I would have much preferred to stay inside, in the warm, and watch a film or read a book. Norfolk is such a beautiful place though and especially since having Erin, we have tried to get out and about a lot more. If you’re looking for something to do in Norfolk here are some ideas for outdoor days out: Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure Park Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure Park had been somewhere I wanted to

Orchard Toys Sound Detectives Review

AD | We received this product free of charge. All opinions are our own.  One of my favourite activities to do with Erin is to play games. I love that we can play something fun while she gets to learn something at the same time. Orchard Toys have such a great range of games for children and we were kindly sent one of their newest releases; Sound Detectives; to try out! Sound Detectives is unlike any of the other Orchard Toys games as you need to use an app on your phone to play. The game is aimed at 2-4

Experiencing Croup With A 3 Year Old

I am not a medical professional so if you think your child has croup, either ring 111 out of hours or see your GP! One of the worst things about being a parent is having poorly children. Erin has had a few times where she’s been really very poorly or hurt herself quite badly in the past and some situations especially have been scary as hell. Just last week we had another scare and it came out of absolutely nowhere. On Tuesday I noticed that Erin’s voice was a bit raspy and it sounded like she was getting a bit

Fun In The Bath With Child’s Farm

AD | Gifted items For a really long time Erin has loved a bath. Except for on nursery days (because she falls asleep so early), Erin has a bath at least an hour long and it’s one of her favourite times of the day. However, being in the water so much, especially in winter, can really dry out Erin’s skin and she has eczema prone skin too. Child’s Farm kindly sent us some of their products for Erin to try. When it comes to baths Erin has a few things she needs and the first is a shampoo that can

10 Reasons Why I Don’t Take My Child To Soft Play

It’s not and it’s never been a secret that I used to be the manager of a soft place centre. When I first moved to Norfolk I took on the job as general staff but it wasn’t long before I was promoted. Honestly, even working there as general staff really wasn’t my idea of fun. Back in 2013 when I took the job I didn’t have Erin and I didn’t even particularly like other people’s children. But, I needed a job to pay for our wedding in Orlando so I did what I had to. Never did I think I
