As a family, we love having a picnic in the garden and now that the weather is colder, we have indoor picnics! Lots of snacky food; like cakes and biscuits, as well as sandwiches and fruit snacks! It’s one of the kids favourite meals and I can see why! Whenever we went outside to have a picnic, I always ended up using an old blanket for the kids to sit on, which wasn’t ideal if the grass was a bit damp because we would end up with soggy bottoms. Now that we have a picnic blanket from MIU Color, a soggy bottom can be avoided. The picnic blanket has a polyester top and a PVC bottom making it waterproof on even the wettest of grass! It folds up nice and compact meaning I can even carry it in the pushchair basket if we go to the park for our picnic lunch.
I remember going to the cinema all the time with my parents when I was a child and it’s something I would love to do with my children, but I know that there is no way they would ever be able to sit still for long enough to watch a movie. The thought of getting them to sit still for over an hour exhausts me! So when we were given the opportunity to have our own cinema experience at home, I knew this was something I could not pass up, and with it being Peppa Pig I knew Keira, Joshua and Zara would love it! So we had our very own Peppa Pig first cinema experience.
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!
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.
