My Mum Guilt Over Spending Time With Our Second Child

 

For a long time, it was just me and Kye-two little besties-a Mother and her Son-the two of us spending every day together while Daddy worked.
We attended playgroups, met up with other Mummy’s and their little ones, and most importantly-we made incredible memories that will stay with me forever.

Personally, I look back on time with Kye and also remember how he got me through my darkest days-at 18 months old, unbeknown to him, his Mummy was going through the first of three miscarriages, and I can honestly say, I know I’d have fallen apart without him.

Itty Bittys ~ Hallmark Cards ~ Product Review

We were sent this bundle of the cutest cuddlies we’ve ever seen, from Hallmark!

 

Hallmark are obviously one of the biggest suppliers of greetings cards, but now, they’re also selling these little cuties!

Itty

Created by Adan Chung-he began by sketching a quick interpretation of what popular characters could look like if they were just a bit “itty bittier”-which is where the products name “Itty Bittys” came from!
Soon, Adan’s simple-but-fresh portrayal of popular licensed characters inspired an entire collection that continues to grow.

With their small stature and super-cute style, they make the perfect gift or stocking filler. Even if it’s a treat for yourself itty bittys are perfect for every occasion. itty bittys may be small but there’s certainly a whole lot to love!

We were sent characters from Star Wars, along with a Flash (DC) and Dorothy (Wizard of Oz).

The children fell instantly in love with them-both insistent on taking them to bed with them-which was fine as Olivia only had Dorothy (although we did have two nights where she’d lob her down the back of her bed-and we’d be met with screeching until we retrieved her).  However, Kye took every Star Wars character and the Flash with him-meaning we were checking on him at our bedtime, but also needing to remove an Itty Bitty from underneath him, or on top of his face!

Itty

Ozeri ~ Nifty Kitchen Gadgets ~ Review

Ozeri kindly sent me these nifty Kitchen gadgets to review!

What was I sent?

Pro Digital Kitchen Food Scale, 1g to 12 lbs Capacity, in Stylish Black ~ Amazon ~ £9.99*

NiftyHonestly the most exciting product Ozeri could’ve sent me, I needed some new scales SO badly.
They’ve by far been used more times than I’d imagined I would have used them by now! They need 2 AA batteries to get working, and have two buttons, one to change the measurement you’re following, and the other to switch the scales on and off, and to reset the weight to zero.

Nifty

 

 

Ozeri Artesio Electric Salt and Pepper Grinder Set, BPA-Free ~ Amazon ~ £14.99

NiftyMuch bigger than I’d assumed they were going to be, these salt and pepper grinders remind me of that Gavin and Stacey scene where Bryn comments on the size of the Italian restaurants pepper grinder! (Ok ok they aren’t that big).
Battery-powered for push-button easy dispensing of salt or pepper, with a see-through container makes monitoring salt and pepper levels easy.
Each run on 4 AA batteries, and no assembly is needed!

Nifty

 

Ozeri Fascina Electric Wine Bottle Opener and Corkscrew ~ Amazon ~ £12.95

NiftyHow nifty is this not so little contraption! Seriously so easy to use too, you literally load it up with 2 AAA batteries (which are included), and the hand held device removes both natural and synthetic corks!
The opener uncorks a bottle of wine in just seconds, and the integrated foil cutter removes the foil easily!

Nifty

 

The links to the products are above-head over and buy some for yourself-you won’t be disappointed!
