When I bought our previous car seat I’ll admit that I didn’t really know what I was doing. I didn’t really know what I should be looking for and I didn’t know what was good and what wasn’t. I ended up buying a car seat that wasn’t really that great for Erin. Every time she would fall asleep her head would fall forward and nothing I did would stop that from happening. That surely wasn’t very comfortable or safe for her. So, I had been looking at getting a new car seat for a while, especially as Erin is now
Back in March we had our first attempt at potty training. We got all kitted out with the Summer Infant My Size Potty and Erin loved it. We gave Erin time to get used to the new potty and a few weeks after it was delivered we got Erin some knickers and gave it a go. It didn’t turn out too well though and Erin just wasn’t ready at a place where she was ready for potty training. We gave up after a couple of days and decided to wait until the weather was nicer and Erin was slightly older
Being a family that doesn’t drive means that some holiday destinations are quite hard for us to get to or it means we can’t take everything we would possibly need. You may have read some of our posts recently about our holiday to Haven in Caister-on-Sea and to get here, we had to take the bus. Luckily, we are able to get a bus 5 minutes from our house and it dropped us right outside Haven. If it had been further away, we might have struggled. As Haven is a self catering holiday park I thought I’d try to be
We’re are in the middle of a pretty hot heatwave (or, you know, that thing called summer) at the moment and sometimes, it’s just too hot to go out in the middle of the day. As much as Erin would love to be out playing in the garden or at the park all of the time, it’s just not practical. If you have children that are old enough to stay up maybe that bit later, early evening is a much more comfortable time to be outside. Here are 5 ways to spend a summer evening with the family: Play in
When it comes to buying presents there are generally a few websites I go to first. For Erin I absolutely love Wicked Uncle as the choice they offer is fantastic and they always have things I have never seen elsewhere. However, until recently I thought that Wicked Uncle was just for children. It turns out they have something for everyone with gifts for babies all the up to the oldest of adults. Yep, they have gift ideas for Big Kidz! When I first heard about the Big Kidz category I was really excited. Not only do I have John to
Sometimes Erin gets into a mood where she doesn’t really want to play with toys. She’s such a creative child and she would much prefer to do something arty or crafty so I have a cupboard stocked full of things for her to do. One of her favourites though is to play with dough. She asks for it over and over again but just playing with the dough on its own can get a bit boring. Recently we were sent the Nick Jr. Ready Steady Dough Super Duper Dough Set and Erin was super excited as soon as she saw it.
Last month we went on a family holiday to Haven. We chose to stay at the Caister-on-Sea park as it was easy enough for us to get to by bus. Being a family that doesn’t drive we tend to try to make things as easy as possible and the bus dropped us off pretty much right outside. Anyway, while we were on the bus a quite large group of older ladies got on part way as what I can only imagine was a regular shopping trip to a nearby town. Erin, being Erin, was her loud and cheeky self and
