Hopefully it will be if you bear in mind my essential top tips for travelling with toddlers.

Is Your Garden Child Safe?

When we become a parent, we want to spend as much time with our children as possible. We want their younger years to be filled with joy, happiness and fun, and as a result of this we try our best to keep them entertained and content through a range of different activities. As they get older, their needs will change which will mean we will not necessarily have to take as much time to think about what we should do with them, and where we should take them for fun days out. When a child is young, they can be content by simply playing with their toys, reading books, colouring or painting. But, as their age progresses they will be happy in their room, playing games, using the internet or catching up with school work.

Is your Garden Child Safe? Here are some hints and tips to help you keep your garden hazard free.

7 Hints & Tips on Surviving Kids Colds with #VicksTricks

We have teamed up Britmums and Vicks to share with you some of our tips on surviving the Winter kids colds season.  This time of year, kids pick up every cold germ going. Baby girl had her first cold at 3 weeks old about this time last year. As new parents we were very scared at night-time. Don’t you think all kids seem to get worse at night?

The past few weeks she has had various sniffles, coughs and a runny nose. All the babies at our baby sensory class seem to have colds as well. There is no escaping!

The #Rockingmotherhood Tag

I just want to say a huge thanks to Sarah over at Mum & Mor for nominating me in the #RockingMotherhood Tag. Also Pat from White Camellias for dreaming up this awesome tag.

The idea behind #RockingMotherhood is for you to write down 10 things on how you rock being a mum.

Not sure why but I’m finding it hard to complete. Maybe it’s because I’ve always been my own worst enemy when it comes to critiquing myself. Plus I’ve always had the attitude that you can always do better. I apply this to my blog also. I know I can do better, be a better blogger, be a better wife so naturally I can be a better mother as well.

There are plenty of simple ways to ensure your children are safe from injury and it doesn’t have to be mission impossible when trying to create a healthy home environment.

Follow these fairly easy preventative steps and you’ll be well on your way to being parent of the year.

The Tidy Tot Review

As you know we are on the weaning journey. When Tidy Tot asked us if we would like to try out their all in one tray kit, I thought it would be a fabulous idea. Hopefully it will help to keep mess to a minimum!

The Tidy Tot Review

What is the Tidy Tot?

Tidy Tot is a fantastic invention by a busy mum of 3. It’s a bib and tray kit that fits together to eliminate the gap between baby and tray. So no food escaping onto the baby’s lap that you only discover when you lift baby from high chair!

The bib attaches to the tray with velcro and is easy to assemble. It will fold away for easy storage and is ideal for taking out and about as well. I love that the whole kit is easy to clean and the bib is machine washable.
