I set my son a reading challenge during the build up to Christmas
It’s December and that means one thing…Christmas is coming! I feel we can now officially start thinking properly about Christmas.
Two’s company, three’s a crowd. We’ve all heard the saying. Is this true with children? Here’s my take on parenting three children…
We had only got to the start of the walk when we glimpsed our favourite tree…a horse-chestnut and there were conkers all over the floor!
There is something special about sleeping in a field under canvas. It was time to share the experience with the whole family.
Keeping fit as a mum can be a struggle, here is how I found my way to fitness…
I am a stay at home mum and my children are now at school, but I still don’t have enough time in the day for everything! How does that happen?
It is amazing what you find out when you stop and properly make time to converse with your children.
I have previously written about inspiring my children, however lately I have noticed how my twin girls are inspired by their big brother.
There is something special about watching siblings grow together, interact and learn alongside each other. The uniqueness of their relationship as a young child is awesome.
This is a question most parents seem to ask themselves on a regular basis…why won’t kids listen?
There is an abundance of wonderful opportunities for after school clubs and activities these days but there needs to be some time for kids to play and relax – so are there too many organised activities for kids?

I love listening to children experiment with language. They make such innocent mistakes that can also be hilarious…
Winter can feel like a long time cooped up indoors, especially with children. However, there should be no reason children can’t play outside still.
We know that kids need regular exercise but how active are you as a mother, and does this reflect in how active your children are?
Now the summer holidays are looming and I am thinking about 6 whole weeks of keeping children entertained, so I decided to make a summer bucket list for the holidays
Last weekend we were lucky enough to go to the New Forest for a few days. We absolutely love it there and autumn is definitely our favourite time of year to visit.
The other week, we found time for a visit and family time. The kids had a great time playing with their twin cousins.
We survived our first holiday abroad! Yay, it seems a long time ago now, but this is the first chance I’ve had to write about it.
Do kids get more fun from playing outdoors or indoors sat in front of a computer screen? I know what I think, what about you?
We have never been abroad as a family before, so booking a holiday for a large family, was an unexpected experience!
We spend ages preparing for an activity, whether it’s a craft, a game, or even a trip out. We research ideas, gather equipment, set it up and pack bags for trips out. It all takes time and effort.
Tools are dangerous. Tools and children don’t go together, however, here’s why I let my children play with tools..
