Toys: Toilet Training is no Big Thing with Bing!

Toilet training doesn’t rank high on many mums list of ‘fun things to do with toddlers’ let’s be honest. So anything that could potentially make the job easier is welcome. Step up ‘Toilet training Bing! Every mum will know who Bing is- the bunny that is bigger than his dad/carer/childminder – Flop! He gets a bit worked up about things…

My Four Year Olds favourite Netflix series

Athena is a bit of a telly addict, I think I only have myself to blame as I relied on the TV to be a bit of a babysitter when her little brother arrived and I had a not quite two year old to entertain during long feeds and naps! As a result she is quite happy to spend an…

What the kids Did: Thomas & Friends Railway Pals

Arlo loves trains, he also loves putting things together and taking them apart so when I presented him with the Thomas & Friends Railway Pals set he was pretty excited!

Athena has always been interested in torches and lights so when…

Starting School: School Uniform Tips & Picks

The time has come, I need to start thinking about school uniform for my little school starter! I don’t want to leave it till the last minute and risk not being able to find what we need and I also want to give Athena time to practise getting dressed and undressed herself to make sure she can manage! I’ve been…

What the Kids Read: May faves & Monster Party giveaway

For the past few weeks the kids have been reading these three books on rotation. Well, they can’t actually read – so I’ve been reading to them and they’ve been looking at the pictures and reciting along where they’ve picked up the words! You can’t go wrong with Shirley Hughes books – they’re always just so simple and lovely and…
