What Kind Of Sleeper Is Your Baby?

I remember when I was having little J all I could think about was whether he would be a good sleeper or not. It sounds bad but after big J being awake 22 hours of the day when he was young, I had a feeling that little J would be the same. As parents looking after a newborn, toddler or a child sleep is so important and when you don't get any it is all you can think about. Luckily for us little J loves his sleep so we haven't really had any sleepless nights in the whole 3 years, really hope he never changes.

Frontline Plus - Protection For Your Pets

You may already know from previous posts that when I was younger we had two dogs. They were so much fun and I helped out when it came to looking after them. I would feed them, take them for walks and I would give them a bath. The only thing I didn't get involved with was keeping them healthy, that was my parents’ job. They would make sure they had their vaccinations done, their nails cut and took them to the vets for regular checkups. I remember one time my Mum sat me down and told me that one of our dogs had fleas and needed a treatment. I could see something black on her beautiful white coat, it was a flea. She was scratching and looked quite distressed and so uncomfortable. It's important as a pet owner to know that there are preventive treatments out there to help protect your dog or cat, including new FRONTLINE® Plus. When it comes to fleas, prevention is definitely better than cure!

Parenting - Toddlers, Teens and Everything In-between 29/09/16

This week was a big one for us as little J started Nursery. He has attended a private nursery for almost two years but now he has begun his journey in what we hope will be come his primary school. The Nursery which is attached to the school is where big J went and we are thrilled little J got a place too.

Cartamundi Disney's Finding Dory Card Games Review

We are big fans of Cartamundi games so when we were sent two Finding Dory card games I knew little J would love them. He is still playing with his Disney Cars games and he loves Nemo and Dory so I knew these would be a hit.

Swim To The Top Of The Class

I have always said that both boys are water babies. They love being in the water and not only do they enjoy having fun splashing around but they both love swimming. From when big J was born he was always at our local swimming pool. Daddy would take big J every week and it was 'their' time together. then big J started to have swimming lessons and it boosted his confidence in the water. I think swimming lessons are a must for every child as it is a life skill that is so important. Little J also enjoys going to the pool although he only goes once every six weeks or so, something we definitely want to change. On their last visit to the pool Daddy actually said little J could start have swimming lessons now as he is ready.

Disney Tsum Tsums Vinyl Stack Pack Review

As a family we are huge Disney fans, we love to collect all things Disney. I mentioned in a previous post that the last time we were in Disneyland Paris, Disney Tsum Tsum plushes were everywhere. In every shop there were huge displays of the little cuties. Back then I had no idea what they were but I couldn't wait to find out.  Shortly after our visit I started to collect the plush versions of the Tsum Tsum characters. If you are new to the world of Tsum Tsum check out my first post here. Tsum Tsum (which means stack stack in Japanese) sit on top of each other. Recently a vinyl version of Tsum Tsum were released and we were so lucky to receive some.

Gross Magic by Drumond Park Review

Halloween will soon be here and we have been getting in the mischievous mood by trying out Gross Magic. I have to say that this is the most disgusting magic set ever so obviously the boys loved it. I took a step back and let Daddy and the boys get stuck in.

What’s more, their new ‘Veg Fund’ allows families to raise money for their school while introducing children to healthy eating and teaching them where their food comes from.

#AirFryerTakeIn - Making Chocolate Brownies with Philips AirFryer

Since I joined Slimming World I have been noticing calories and fat content more than I ever have in the past. I am conscious all the time especially when eating out. When Philips asked us to take the #AirFryerTakeIn challenge I was quite excited as I love using our Airfryer. For those that are not familiar with the Airfryer you can visit our Airfryer Review. We were sent a selection of different recipes to make that have less calories than if you were eating out.

Our first choice was Chocolate Brownies.

Brio World Fire Station and Firefighter Helicopter Review

I can honestly say that I have never seen little J's eye light up before as much as they did when he saw the huge box that arrived last week. Inside was the Brio World Fire Station and he couldn't wait to get stuck in. I had to quickly get the scissors to open the box because he looked liked he was going to explode. He kept saying as I was pulling the pieces out of the box 'Is this for me?' I love how much he love's toys it just make me smile.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang At Birmingham Hippodrome

A few weeks ago Daddy and I travelled to Birmingham to see Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at the Birmingham Hippodrome. I absolutely loved the film when I was younger, I would watch it everyday after school. I knew all the words and would sing along at the top of my voice. We went to see Chitty Chitty Bang Bang years ago and loved it but the actual reason for our visit this time was that I am a huge Carrie Hope Fletcher fan.

Daddy Goes Shopping On Wicked Uncle

When it comes to buying toys I am a little more open minded than Daddy. Daddy obviously enjoys choosing toys for little J but they are always the same type either cars or lego. So when Wicked Uncle gave us a challenge of browsing their website and choosing some toys for little J, I gave Daddy the job.



The only rule I had was that Daddy couldn't choose anything that had 4 wheels or nothing that you can build with such as blocks or lego.

Bunny Jump by University Games Review

Little J has started really enjoying playing games such as memory games or simple fun games. We have always played games as a family. We spent lots of rainy days with big J playing games and little J is following in his footsteps. When Bunny Jump arrived for little J, I knew he would love it and I had a feeling I would too.

I have mentioned Num Noms before on my blog but if you haven't heard of them Nums are adorable, scented, squishy characters with tons of personality. Noms are motorized mischievous characters that move around, they're scented too. Stack the Nums on top of the Noms to make over 1,000 sweet scented combinations. We were recently invited to an event at our local Bella Italia to celebrate the launch of series 2 of Num Noms.

TMNT Half Shell Squeeze 'Ems Review

When I was younger I absolutely loved the Turtles, I would watch it every morning on Sky One. I had the figures and Raphael was my favourite. Thinking back now I remember I wanted to be just like the reporter April O'Neil. When we were offered the chance to review a TMNT Half Shell Heroes Squeeze 'Ems from Flair Plc I was really excited. It's nice that the Turtles have made another comeback and little J can enjoy them like I did.

Little J has loved Peppa Pig for as long as I can remember so when we were asked to try out the new Peppa Pig Alphaphonics Campervan I knew little J would love it. Little J loves learning and although he knows his letters and numbers there will be a time soon that he needs to learn his phonics.

Celebrating #NationalTeddyBearDay with Build-A-Bear Workshop

As it is #NationalTeddyBearDay this week it got me thinking about big and little J and their favourite teddies. Both boys love teddies, big J when he was younger had so many and little J is just the same. For me there is something special about teddies and I too had a few favourites. They are always there for you when you need them whether its to comfort you when you are sad, to take on special days out or to snuggle at night.

Our Family Fortnight - 03/09/16

The last two weeks have been very busy. We have had a few events to go and they have all been so much fun. We love heading out on little adventures, seeing and trying new things. We do try and combine the events with other fun things too, so while we attended a Netflix event we also made the most of our time in London and headed to some of the major attractions.

Parenting - Toddlers, Teens and Everything In-between 01/09/16

I can't believe that it is September already, this year has flew by. For many of us September means our little ones are either starting nursery, starting school, moving from infants to juniors or even juniors to seniors. It's going to be a tough one for me as I have spent all Summer with my boys and then they go off and leave me. Well little J is just for a few hours as he is just starting Nursery.
