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!

A couple of weeks ago, we celebrated Olivia’s 4th Birthday-and boy, does that girl know how to drag out Birthday celebrations (goodness knows where she gets it from…..)

I’ll attach a vlog I put together over the week, at the end of this blog, but first I wanted to review a couple of places we visited during the celebrations. Continue reading “Minnis Bay Brasserie & Gravity Review ~ Olivia-May’s Birthday Week”

#Blogtober17 ~ Day 10 ~ Joke

Today is day 10 of Blogtober 2017, and the theme today is ‘Joke’.

 

As a blogger, regardless of how I describe what I do, and how I spend my time, I still end up being treated as a joke.

I know, I know, you didn’t expect to come over to today’s Blogtober post and read this did you!

But it’s true-I genuinely am treated and thought of as a joke. Continue reading “#Blogtober17 ~ Day 10 ~ Joke”

#HelloYellow ~ Young Minds ~ Supporting Our Children’s Mental Health

Being a Mental Health Blogger myself, it goes without saying how important my children’s mental health is too.

 

So when I saw my Son’s school were supporting Young Minds-the UK’s leading charity championing the well-being and mental health of young people-on World Mental Health Day 2017, there wasn’t any doubt in my mind that I would support them too.

My 5 


Almost 6 years ago I lost my first baby. 


That’s probably not the way to start a blog but to be honest, I can’t think of another way-I’ve
been waiting to find a time when I can speak about what I went through.

And now words seem to fail me.  Continue reading “My 5 “

#Blogtober17 ~ Day 7 ~ Goals

Today is day 7 of Blogtober 2017!  The theme today is ‘Goals’.

 

Obviously I could’ve got the football loving husband involved, and asked him about his all time favourite goals, scored since he’s been watching the big game….  However, I decided not to bore you all to tears with that-and instead, discuss my idea of goals, not just as a blogger, but also with regards to all aspects of my life.
Goals Continue reading “#Blogtober17 ~ Day 7 ~ Goals”
