Some of you may already know the story (or some of it), of why and how we ended up moving Kye, mid-term from his last school to his current one.
Most however, don’t know the full story, and I have rarely told it.
I couldn’t tell you what stopped me really-I think it was a mixture of things; not wanting to rock the boat; I know people who’s children still attend the previous school-and I know there’s a loyalty there. I also think a lot of my reasoning, was sheer stubbornness-I didn’t think I needed to share our reasons for changing something so huge in our Son’s life, because we knew we were doing the right thing for him-and no explanation was needed for that.

So, most of you know already that my Husband and I decided that two children was enough for us-especially after losing three babies between our two children. Aside from the fact, I personally just couldn’t deal with the grieving and heartache that miscarriage brings with it physically and mentally, our second child wasn’t as easy going as our first, and we knew two was plenty with chalk and cheesE as our kids!
We were really kindly sent some personalised books from The Magic of My Name-a treat for both children with individual stories of their names.
I’m starting to think I’m a little addicted to the Learning Resources online shop at the moment-especially for home education learning activities and products for my children. I don’t home educate-they both attend nursery and school-but I like to co-educate I suppose you’d call it, by teaching them things they learn at school at home too!
One of the subjects I haven’t done much of yet, is coding-my Son who is 8, has done a fair bit, but my daughter had zero idea of what it even was.
We were super lucky to receive Botley-a coding robot from the lovelies at Learning Resources, which has enabled me to not only teach my son further coding tricks, but has also allowed him to teach his little sister how to do it!
We were really kindly sent a humongous box of goodies from Googly Fruit! Including crunchy puffs, crunchy fruit snacks, and fruit pouches, as well as a cute alphabet book, and some stickers-this pack was a massive hit with my two children!
Recently, I received a press release from a company called Reroom. I always have a little mooch on the press releases, but never really respond to interior design/home interior releases, because I haven’t really covered that kind of genre on my website before.
It occured to me however, that before I wrote about most of the topics I cover, I hadn’t written about them before-each genre and subject has to start somewhere, and I realised Reroom were the perfect company to start with.
We were lucky enough to be sent some of these awesome Playfoam Pals from Learning Resources.
After the amount of children’s television we watch, I’m surprised I haven’t actually seen these advertised-I have a four year old who pretty much wants everything she sees, but she didn’t know what they were either! Continue reading
A couple of weeks ago, saw the panicked posts and messages between anxious parents, waiting on their child’s school admission emails.
I was one of those parents-eagerly awaiting an email to tell me my Daughter had got into our only choice school-her Brother’s current school. We kind of knew it was a done deal, but as the minutes/hours ticked by, doubt crept in-what if we were really that unlucky and we didn’t get her in! Continue reading
You guys know me by now-you know I’m all for female solidarity-girls and women being there for each other, in a world that is unfortunately still dominated by the opposite sex.
However, I’m also very much into advocating parental solidarity-parents being there for other parents-without judgement, bringing only positivity, advice, help and, well, just being there for each other (regardless of sex). Continue reading
