Children’s literature-Storytime Magazine-Review and Giveaway!


If you’re like us (and I’m pretty sure like most of the worlds parents), you have story time as part of your bedtime routine.

I’m always after new stories, new books, and new concepts to shake story time up a little, so, when I was sent two magazines from Storytime, I knew the children (and I) would love them! Continue reading “Children’s literature-Storytime Magazine-Review and Giveaway!”

Weekend Box-Snazaroo Mini Face Paint Range-Review

How much do your children love face paints?  If they’re anything like my Daughter (just her-my son isn’t as keen), then the answer will be “thiiiiiiiiis much”, (while they hold their hands as wide apart as possible).

We were sent a Weekend Box and inside, were some awesome mini packs of Snazaroo face paints! Continue reading “Weekend Box-Snazaroo Mini Face Paint Range-Review”

Fudge Kitchen-Home Kit Kids in the Kitchen-Review

Hands up if you love fudge!

I do!  I mean I love pretty much any food-I’m one of life’s “grazers” (like a cow really), but how much more fun is grazing when there’s fudge involved!?

 

Fudge Kitchen sent the little ones their very own fudge-making kit! Continue reading “Fudge Kitchen-Home Kit Kids in the Kitchen-Review”

Meccano from Spin Master-Imagination & Creative Play Review

When I was younger, I was kind of half girly girl, and half tom boy-I loved barbies, dressing up and pink things, but I also loved cars, action men, and building things!

I also absolutely loved Meccano-so, when the opportunity came up for me Kye to review a box of it, I was more than happy! Continue reading “Meccano from Spin Master-Imagination & Creative Play Review”

BritMums-Healthy Red Meat-Cooking Challenge

I was given a challenge from BritMums, to cook my little family a healthy red meat dinner!

Before I begin, a small disclaimer if you will*
*I am not a chef.  I’m not even a very good cook.  I mainly just give making dinners a good attempt and hope for the best!

 

One of my main issues with cooking is that the children are always around, so I don’t find time to make new dishes-however, I do like to give them the best food-food that is healthy and tasty. Continue reading “BritMums-Healthy Red Meat-Cooking Challenge”

Why my Son is scared of the world, but I’m not completely sad about it….

 

Over the last 6 months, my son (7), has begun having nightmares, and sometimes anxiety before he’s even gone to sleep, about being scared of the world and situations around him.

My Dad and Step-Mum, both work closely with children of all ages, and have assured me this is normal-something I confirmed with our old friend Google.  Apparently at this age, children become more aware of mortality-their own and other peoples.  They overthink situations that usually wouldn’t get a second thought. Continue reading “Why my Son is scared of the world, but I’m not completely sad about it….”

My Message To You

This is by far one of the easiest blogs I think I’ve ever written, and will probably ever write.

It is a blog filled with different messages-those of hope, sadness, disbelief, anger, thanks and fellowship.

For months (possibly years), I’ve been blogging about my experiences of baby loss, trying to raise awareness for recurrent miscarriages and mental health issues surrounding and following on from losing a baby.

Most of the blogs I write, highlight two major mental health issues, incidentally, two I suffer from-anxiety and depression.  But these issues stem from one other diagnosis I have also been given, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Continue reading “My Message To You”

Helicopter Parenting-Do You Really Have All The Facts?

Helicopter Parenting
Some have heard of this term, others may be  wondering what it is.
To clarify, “helicopter parenting” relates to a parent that hovers around their child, being overprotective, shadowing them, keeping a short distance between them, in case of accidents and other life issues.

 

This is me. I’m a helicopter parent. The thing is, I don’t want to be one.  I certainly never chose to be one.  It kind of just happened. Continue reading “Helicopter Parenting-Do You Really Have All The Facts?”

PJ Masks-Powerful Fun For Little Heroes-Magazine Review

Myself and my daughter, were kindly send a PJ Masks magazine to review! Olivia is a massive PJ Masks fan, so this was very well received by her!

PJ

Most pre-school magazines are pretty bang on with how appropriate they are for their target age-we reviewed a CBeebies magazine a little while ago (see here) and, although Olivia was a little younger, she still managed to get a lot out of the learning pages.
