Now you are four

My eldest turned four yesterday. Happy birthday, big girl. I wasn’t planning to write anything, but it seems almost rude to gloss over what is a Very Big Thing in the life of a small child. It’s hard to believe it’s been four whole years since the day we went …

Planning the perfect Disney princess party #DisneyParty

The idea of arranging and hosting a children’s birthday party strikes fear into my heart.  So far, I’ve got away with it; I’ve never held a birthday party for either of my children. I know, I am an awful parent. However I maintain that at least until the age of …

And so that’s it, baby stage over: Turning two

My birthday sleepover and a visit to Peppa Pig World

Last week it was my birthday. I got two pairs of slippers; I think I have officially reached old age. I’m OK with that. They are nice slippers. It also happened to be half term for my sister, who is a teacher in a school with enviably long half term …

Make bath time magical with Colours of the Sea Ariel

I’ve tried so hard, but I admit defeat. She has had blocks, bricks, cars and trains. She’s watched Cars and she’s watched Bob the Builder. She’s never been forced into pink. But all to no avail; My little girl just wants to be a Disney Princess.It started with Frozen. The …
