AD | Gifted item There are two things that Erin loves nearly more than anything else and they are Peppa Pig and a good tea party. Peppa Pig could be on our television all day and Erin wouldn’t mind at all. In fact, she’d probably be really happy about it. As soon as I saw that there was a Peppa Pig ‘Peppa’s house tea set‘ I knew it would be something that Erin would like. What’s inside the box: The Peppa Pig Tea Set comes with the following items: Tea pot in the shape of Peppa’s house 4 cups 4
AD | Gifted item Erin is currently starting to read and write so we’re always looking for things to help her learn certain letters. B Is For Baby by Atinuke is one of our newest books and it focuses on the letter B. Baby’s brother is getting ready to take a basket of bananas all the way to Baba’s bungalow in the next village. He will have to go along the bumpy road, past the baobab trees, birds and butterflies, and all the way over the bridge. What he doesn’t realize is that his cute, very curious baby sister is secretly
AD | Paid collaboration Over the past couple of months ago Erin really started to crave more independence. She wants to walk down the street and not hold hands as much. She wants to run off ahead sometimes. She also wants to play upstairs on her own. Although we have a baby monitor in her room it only covers the area where her bed is and that leaves at least half of the room in a blind spot. Baby monitors, especially ones with video capability, can be expensive and it’s not something we really need another one of considering Erin’s
AD | Gifted item In January Erin turned 3 and changed where she goes to nursery. Her old nursery sadly closed down so we changed to a Montessori nursery. Since then Erin has really thrived and she has become more and more interested in what happens on a daily basis. We have a large calendar/ white board where I write down everything we do and Erin asks what some of it means. Instead of Erin using my calendar which is quite frankly a bit boring, we were recently sent a Danilo’s ‘My First Calendar’. There are three options available; Peppa
AD | Gifted experience Whenever we travel John and I always like to look for the best deal or a way to save money. Something we have found numerous times is that buying vouchers in advance for meals can work out much cheaper than paying on the day. Just last week we headed to Ipswich for a few days and we wanted to have at least 1 meal booked and paid for in advance. In the past we have had a really good experience with Buyagift vouchers and have been to places such as Planet Hollywood and Zizzi. When I
AD | Gifted Items Erin wanted a bike pretty much as soon as she walk. She saw other children on theirs and desperately wanted to be the same. Up until recently Erin had a Toddlebike2 and has really enjoyed riding it. She’s gone from practising in the living room, to playing in the garden and then to going for a ride down the street. As she turned 3 earlier this year the Toddlebike2 was no longer working for Erin and it was just too small for her. We decided to upgrade Erin to a balance bike and Kiddimoto helped us
AD | Gifted items Spring is finally here after what seems to be a very long wait. The weather is slowly getting warmer, the nights are getting lighter and that means I have been looking forward to getting out in the garden more. Our garden is actually really basic but I just don’t go out there during the winter. So, when the time comes there ends up being quite a bit I need to do to get the garden ready for summer. This year Home Bargains sent us a wonderful selection of their gardening products to help us out. It’s pointless
AD | Gifted Item Crocodiles are probably one of Erin’s favourite animals. We sing songs about them, have puzzles in the shape of them and we love reading stories about them. Today John is talking about Kiss the Crocodile by Sean Taylor and Ben Mantle. Down in the jungle, three best friends – Monkey, Tortoise and Anteater – are playing silly games together. After Stick Splash, Scary Monsters and Silly Dancing, they spy Little Crocodile and his big crocodile mum in the swamp. Do they want to play a new game, Little Crocodile asks … a DARING game. KISS THE CROCODILE!
