FAMILY CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS

Since becoming a parent, Christmas has become my favourite time of year.  For me, Christmas feels really magical this year in particular as this is the first year that Jack really understands what Christmas is. Now aged 3, he is super excited about putting the Christmas tree (we may have already done it!) and seeing Santa. I'm really trying to implement some Christmas Traditions that we will do year upon year. Things that Jack can come to expect and be excited about.

LITTLE RAGAMUFFIN CHILDREN'S INTERIORS REVIEW

Having moved house at the beginning of this year, I am currently still adding the finishing touches to Jack's bedroom. Jack is three years old and is car obsessed. To be honest it's not just cars, it's pretty much anything transport related. Emergency vehicles, Airplanes and helicopters - you name it, Jack loves it. I decided on a transport theme for his room and with a fire engine bed, car rug and transport light shade, we are well on our way to decorating it according to this theme. Having already got these basics, I've been looking for accessories that will transform the room and make it look very special for Jack.

THIS MUM CAN | I RAN A MARATHON


Two years ago I couldn't run for thirty seconds without staggering to a stop. I used to struggle to catch my breath before I even hit the end of the road. Cheeks flushed, I would plod back to my house and try to forget about my dream of completing a marathon. I thought running would give me some me-time back post pregnancy but to be honest I found it a very difficult hobby to do on my own. The beeping of car horns and jeers of 'I could walk quicker' didn't help either.

STRUGGLING WITH SEPARATION ANXIETY AT NURSERY | TIPS


Jack has been at Nursery for four weeks now and with half term quickly approaching, I thought I'd reflect on the last few weeks and how we as a family have transitioned to having a little boy at school.

DC Super Friends Interactive Power Punch Batman Review | It's Batman Day


Like many children his age, Jack is Batman obsessed. From the very moment he first set eyes on the opening titles of the Lego Batman movie, he has become fixated on Batman, his sidekick Robin and villain The Joker.

Pasta Kidz: The Inventing Tubes | Review


Books are essential to a child's development. They are also a lovely way of spending time with your little one. I absolutely adore reading to Jack. I love how stories capture his imagination and transport him momentarily to another place.

 I'm always looking to add books to Jack's collection so when I was sent The Pasta Kidz: The Inventing Tubes by children's author Bryony Supper,  I couldn't wait to share it with Jack.

LIFE IS ABOUT TO CHANGE | JACK'S STARTING NURSERY


A new chapter in Jack's life is about to start and to be honest I'm not sure if I'm ready for the change. Jack is starting Nursery in September. In around three weeks time he will be walking through the school gates and into another one of life's adventures. Bag in hand, he will trot off and no doubt absolutely love being able to play and learn whilst in the company of children of a similar age. Whilst I absolutely believe this is the perfect time for him to go to Nursery, I have been left wondering what I'm going to do without him.
