This month has been a busy one to say the least but I have managed to squeeze in quite a bit of reading which has been great. With a mix of historical, thriller, mysteries and modern: it’s been a diverse month on my bookshelf to say the least. This is what I’ve been reading:
We’re very lucky to have friends who had children at the same time as us. That means that not only do we have a set of people who understand how awful and wonderful parenthood can be at times, but the kids also have a ready-made set of little friends who they love spending time with.
Getting together at Christmas to exchange gifts is always a struggle. So, this year we decided to get everyone together and have a Christmas party for the little people. As soon as we told the Bear she was incredibly excited. Here’s how to throw a great Children’s Christmas party.
One thing that both my Bears love is animals. Specifically, cats and dogs. So, when we were contacted to try out the Puppy Dog Pals Doghouse Playset along with a Puppy Dog Pals Deluxe Friends Set, there was no hesitation. So, if you have little ones that are fans of the show and are looking to maybe invest in some toys for them, this is what we thought.
If you have never heard of Desenio before, they are a company that provides Scandinavian design posters and picture frames. I love their core principle in that they believe that stylish wall art should be affordable to everyone. Something I could not agree with more.
I was recently given the opportunity to select a few items from their range. With a new dining room and play room to add the finishing touches to, as well as Henrys room to transform from a room fit for a baby to one fit for a little man, it was perfect timing!
Now the Bears are older, we’ve started to dig out the games and enjoy family games afternoons together. We already have a handful of kid’s classic games which we have been given as Christmas gifts, but now we’re sitting down all together we’re on the lookout for something that we can all enjoy. That’s not quite as easy as it sounds as it needs to be engaging enough for Darcie at 4, but simple enough for Henry to be able to still get involved with at 2.
So, when we got the chance to take a closer look at Jitterbug from University Games, we were eager to take a look together.
