Valentines Crafts from Baker Ross

E loves arts and crafts so when the postman delivered a box of Baker Ross crafts she was very excited and couldn’t wait to have a look. There was an assortment of the new Valentines, Spring and Easter crafts included and we cannot wait to share with you our creations. We have started off with the Valentines Craft – Foam heart-shaped glasses. We have been sent a pack of six foam glasses and a bag of love bug stickers to use on them. They are so cute! E chose to decorate the red foam glasses and I was instructed to do the pink ones! E emptied most of the stickers out ready to use and I also got some sparkly gems out from our craft drawer to use. What I love about this craft is that E was able to do it on her own, the stickers peeled off really easily so she… View Post

Yucoco Personalised Chocolate For Valentines Day – Review

With Valentines day fast approaching everyone is looking for that extra special gift, something personal, something a little bit different. Instead of the usual flowers or box of chocolates which most people give for valentine’s day, why not give your valentine some personalised chocolate?

Stuff Emily Says – Threenager

E was on the sofa singing “Let It Go” and then she started making up her own lyrics, singing about mummy and Sunshine to the tune of “Let It Go” when halfway through she stopped, held up her hands and said “WAIT JUST A MINUTE. IS THiS A NEW VERSION OF DAT SONG?” And I’m  like, well YOU’RE making up the words here so…yes? In other stories about E’s shenanigans, after a time-out I usually ask her “Okay, are you ready to talk about it and what have you got to say?” Yesterday the timer bleeped on my phone and before I got the chance she looked at me and said “Oh Mummy, shall we talk about this.” Which seems to be a theme around here because the other day in the middle of a post-timeout discussion she heaved about big sigh and said “Hmm, can we talk about something else?” Plus, she’s pretty much… View Post

The Sacred Hour

Each day, when E come’s home from Preschool, I gently question about her day. Being the girl that she is, she had other things on her mind. She gave me very little back, and it felt like she was sliding into a secret world at school that I would never fully understand. All I ever get out of her is that she played trains and lots of other things, when I ask what snack she had I got the reply cheesy biscuits and the reply is always in her threenager attitude, as if to say enough of the questions, just let me play. On a night-time E always wants me to get her ready for bed, on rare occasions she will let daddy. One night after reading stories I asked her if she had a good day today, her reply surprised me as she started to talk about preschool. She told me about people… View Post
