I know that this is one that has been done before by plenty of other parent bloggers, but I’m sure we all have our own take on it. After all, everyone parents differently and what matters to some is completely irrelevant to others. So this is my stamp on it, it’s also my chance to pull out some of the baby pictures of my three darlings and remind myself of those teeny tiny, wrinkly newborns.
Ever since having children, I seem to have lost my desire to keep up with the latest fashion trends. In fact my clothing choice is definitely more comfort over style these days. When I purchase new clothes I always reach for a pair of jeans or leggings and a t-shirt but lately it’s making me feel so frumpy and just uncool. So when I was asked by the lovely team at JD Williams if I’d like to choose some items for a post, I knew this was the time to unfrump myself and find my inner cool!
For as long as I can remember Joshua has always been obsessed with construction vehicles. He has a huge collection of excavators, backloaders, dump trucks, bulldozers and various other vehicles associated with construction. In fact, for his second birthday, his nana and grandad bought him a ride on excavator that takes pride in our living room.
So when we were offered to review the Kinetic Rock – Rock Crusher set there was no way I could turn it down. I knew Joshua was going to be the happiest little boy in the world!
There comes a point in my life where I always sit and wonder where I’d be or what I would be doing if I hadn’t of had children when I did. I know that my life would have been completely different, but just how different could it be?
I love my children and I definitely wouldn’t change my life at all but there is just something deep within that makes me wonder where I’d be, or what I’d be doing.
It’s been a few weeks now that Joshua has been telling us when he needs to have a wee or a poo and he hates having a dirty nappy on so we tried him with a potty but he just wasn’t having any of it. He wouldn’t even entertain the idea and after an afternoon of being nappy-free, he cried until I had put him back in a nappy so that he could have a wee. He’s got great holding skills! But it was pretty clear that potty training wasn’t going to happen for us because Joshua just did not want to sit on the potty without a nappy on.
When we was offered the opportunity to review Toilet Train Bing I jumped to it, I knew that this would be perfect to help Joshua get on the potty and realise that it was okay to sit on the potty to have a wee on.
