Film Ideas For Children That Don’t Like Animation

For the longest time I have been trying to get Erin interested in watching films. I would love to be able to sit on the couch with her on a rainy day, with our duvet, and cuddle up to watch something fun. Unfortunately, it really hasn’t gone in my favour. Erin has always quite liked cartoons and is happy to sit and watch random videos on YouTube for a while but a film she just will not bother with. We have tried all sorts and up until recently, the most we could get out of her was 40 minutes of

Celebrating Valentine’s Day As A Family

Up until recently John and I have never been in a situation where we could go out together on our own without Erin. We don’t speak to the majority of John’s family and my family don’t live near us at all. Fortunately, my sister is living with us at the moment so we have had a bit more opportunity to have some time to ourselves. However, Valentine’s Day is not a thing for a husband and wife alone in our house but it’s a family affair. If you’re quite similar to us then there are plenty of ways that you
