The term self care is used sooo much these days. But how important is it really? Should self care be such a big deal?
Since the twiglets started school, I’ve been feeling a bit… well… lost. It can be such an emotional time – it certainly has been for me! So how do you cope with feeling sad when your children start school?
After whinging about H’s night waking on Instagram one day, a friend recommended Fidgetbum. She said it had been a complete gamechanger for her twins’ sleep. So when I saw that Fidgetbum were looking for people to test and review their sleep aid, I applied figuring it was worth a shot, and was super happy to be chosen 😁
A fact you may well already know about me: I love rainbows. I love wearing them myself and I love dressing my kids in them 😁🌈 Recently I’ve had a few people ask me: ‘But what are you going to do if they turn around to you one day and say they don’t want to wear rainbows any more?!’ Well… not dress them in them anymore obvs 😂 But here is why, for now, I love dressing my kids in rainbows…
How are we already at the point of our twins starting school?! In some ways, it feels like only yesterday that we were sat on the sofa in our living room, having just returned from hospital, with two tiny, helpless babies in car seats, looking at each other like ‘so wtf do we do now?!’ Overwhelmed, emotional and bloody knackered…
Helloooo! If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of colour 😁🌈 So I thought I’d share the love and tell you about a few of the rainbow Instagram accounts whose glorious feeds bring a bit of sunshine into my day. I haven’t included any shops, as there are so many of those that I will do a separate post on them 😊 Enjoy! 🌈🌈🌈🌈
As the twiglets are getting older and their understanding of the world is widening every day, I’m finding myself struggling with knowing how much to tell them about things. Fundamentally, I believe that honesty is the best policy with children. However, I find myself torn between wanting to be honest with them but also wanting to preserve their innocence while I still can. So how honest should parents be with children?
Today I’m going to share with you a lovely company called Bopster. Recently, we were really lucky to be sent some Bopster children’s luggage to review. We were already big fans of this brand so I was chuffed when they contacted me to ask if we would like to try out some of their range 😊
Reward charts. Such a popular parenting tool. We’re trying one out with the twiglets at the moment, yet I’ve always felt quite conflicted about them. Are reward charts a good idea? I’ll try to explain why I have some reservations about reward charts in this post… 😊
I don’t really consider myself to be very ‘Insta.’ I mean, I post on there (a lot – probably too much 😂) and I love it (again, probably too much 🙈). But I don’t always feel like I necessarily ‘fit in’ as such. I’m not saying this as some kind of pity party for one or anything – it’s just the way I see it. And actually I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t really mind 😊 So here are 5 reasons why I’m not very Instagram:
I’m currently sat in Costa with a coconut latte and a toastie, enjoying a rare couple of hours of peace and quiet. It’s half term and the twiglets are at a Playball camp for the morning. I’m trying to relax and appreciate the time to myself but I can’t help but think about the fraught, stressful few hours we had before we left the house earlier. Destructive behaviour in toddlers can be so difficult to deal with!!
