One Third Stories is a company that produce a monthly subscription box aimed at 4-9 year old children, so that they can learn a language through naratives. I loved this idea, and was keen to see how it would work.
Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean children should stay indoors. There are so many winter outdoor activities that kids can do, that there should be no excuse not to wrap up warm and get out there. I read somewhere that there was never inappropriate weather, just inappropriate clothing. So get on the wellies and waterproofs and get outside.
I honestly thought it might be easier second time round, but in truth it’s not. Harder even maybe. My youngest, my little baby boy starts Primary School tomorrow. The next milestone reached seemingly so quickly, and mummy can’t quite keep up. I’m as emotional tonight, maybe more so, as I was this time last year with his big sister starting.
The last few weeks have seen a lot of first and lasts for my children. Culminating in Oliver leaving Pre-school and Isla finishing her first year at Primary school on Friday. Everything is happening so fast, and emotionally I am struggling to keep up.
Father’s Day is fast approaching, and I don’t know about you but I always struggle for ideas. Not just for my dad, but also for James on behalf of the kids. This year I wanted to think outside the box, and find some unique and unusual gifts for Father’s Day. This is my round up of my favourite Father’s Day gift ideas with a twist!
It’s such a cliché I know, but I seriously I can’t believe where the time has gone. On Monday, my youngest, my little blue eyed baby boy, my Oliver became 4 years old.
This year, for their 4th Blog ambassador programme, Mark Warner Holidays have asked us willing entrants what our top ten travel must haves are. Like most mums, my absolute holiday essential is to make sure my kids are happy, so we thought we would hand the task over to them.
OK, so I’m pretty sure this isn’t a groundbreaking statement and that I’m not alone. We all know children can be irritating sometimes, and they know how to push your buttons. Recently however I’ve realised that there are a few things my kids do, or don’t do, that really irritate me! You know, properly wind me up to the point of near explosion!
