Life’s Been Tough

I realise that I’ve been away from my blog for some time, in fact blogging has been the very last thing on my mind and it’s something that I have missed, so very much. 

There has been so much happening that I lost focus on all the hard work I had put into my blog and it has certainly been neglected. Although I’d prefer not to get into the details about my unexpected absence, I feel like deserved some explanation. After all, you were all a huge part of my life. 

Firstly, we’re all okay and we’re all in good health. In fact we’re better than okay! We’re surviving the summer holidays (just about) and we’re preparing for Zara’s first birthday! It’s super exciting! Just 2 weeks until the big day and I am so not ready, but then is anyone ever ready for their baby to turn 1?!

It all started with my phone breaking. Zara decided it would be hilarious to throw my phone on the floor and completely smash the screen making it completely unusable. Cheers child. Then the laptop decided it didn’t want to work! It was literally one thing after the other. Following that there were a few issues within the family (which I definitely won’t go into) and it was all going down hill. 

Things seem to have calmed down now, the laptop is working and I have a new phone! Hurray! So I’m hoping that this post is the start of my return after a very shakey few weeks! 

I’m sure you’re all curious to see the little ones, so I’ll drop a few photos for you to see!

Our Go-To Snack | Kiddylicious Wafers

Having a child with so many different allergies, egg being the main one, it’s increasingly difficult to find snacks for him that he can have. Most things contain egg, especially in the additives. So, I started looking towards vegan products but, like gluten free products, they can get quite pricey. I was lost for ideas and I didn’t want to keep him on fruit, yogurt and rice cakes forever. I wanted him to have some variety.
 That was until I came across these wafers from Kiddylicious. What a life saver they have been.
Trying to find egg free snacks is no easy task, but I don't have to worry about with Kiddylicious Wafers.

5 Tips for Dealing with a Fussy Eater

Having a fussy eater in the family really does bring us down and limits dinner times. Here's some top tips for all those struggling.
Ever since weaning age, Keira has always proved herself to be challenging when it comes to food but I wasn’t aware just how much of a fussy eater she was going to be. From around 11 months old she had already made me aware of what she liked and disliked, or maybe it was just what she wanted to eat and what she didn’t.

I have always been able to count on one hand the foods that she will eat, yep there really isn’t many, and it has been such a stress getting her to eat something new or something that she “didn’t like”. Meal times have been so stressful and most of the time they end up in tears from us both. I never thought that trying to get your child to eat could be so draining, mentally and physically.

Fisher-Price BeatBo Range

When BeatBo first came on the scene I knew that my kids would love them. Joshua was always playing with the BeatBo at his cousin’s house when we went to visit so I knew I had to get him one of his own. I’m glad I didn’t because it’s one of the toys that gets played with day-in-day-out, and his tunes are pretty funky! So when I was asked if we wanted to test and review a few toys from the BeatBo range, there was no way I was going to turn that down.

Crawlerz Anti-Slip Sleepsuit Review

As a parent, safety is paramount and slipping on the floor whilst crawling is one we don't normally think of straight away. Luckily Crawlerz did!

I dreaded the moment when Zara started crawling, I knew she was going to be a handful and that she is. I have to dig her out of everything, her curiosity is wild! She will whizz around the living room at super speed, sliding all over our wooden floor. I was a bit stumped at how to help her not slip everywhere, especially as we don’t have a rug. So when we were asked to test and review a Crawlerz sleepsuit I was so excited!

We were sent this item in return for an honest review, all opinions are my own. For more information, please see my Disclosure page.
