Anyone who follows the blog knows that I love photograhy. Add in the fact that I’m a blogger and a mummy – a snap happy one at that – and it’s at no surprise that I take a lot of photos. And I mean A LOT. So many, that when I upload them to Flickr for safe storage, there can be anything from 500 – 800 each month. So, when the team from Photowall got in contact asking me if I wanted to choose something from their site to review, there was never any doubt that it would be a new photo wall print that we would choose.
We’ve all been there. You used to have a great connection with your partner but then kids come alone. And with it the late nights, early mornings and extreme exhaustion. With the ever increasing pile of dishes – and let’s not even mention the washing – it’s easy to get stuck in a rut of trying to keep on top of a routine but never quite managing it.
In the midst of all this chaos, it’s easy to loose track of each other. It’s never something you plan to happen. However, before you know it, you’ve gone days with little more than a ‘hi’ and ‘bye’ in between. So here it is, my top 3 tips for remaining connected in the midst of kiddie chaos.
For those people who follow the blog, you know that we have a toddler in the house – well, 2 in fact – but this particular one is a little on the small side. At 3 years old the Bear is wearing a mix of 18 – 24 month clothes that are getting a little short in the leg, and 2- 3 years that just hang off her. So yeah, she’s a little small for her age.
This doesn’t usually cause us many issues but some things can become a struggle. Like meal times for example. We love all sitting up to the table together but this means that the Bear usually ends up knealing to eat her meal. The reason being that she refuses normal booster seats that strap her in. With sounds of “I’m not a baby anymore, mummy” ringing in my ears, her old booster has now been donated to her younger brother (who as a 17 month old fidget, most certainly still needs to be strapped down!). This means that we had a gap in our lives for something for the Bear. Enter the BabyBjorn Booster Set
Just like most of the country, this week the snow decended on us. The Bears have never even seen snow in person, let alone played in it so it was with great excitement when it arrived with us on Friday. Out we went, and that’s what we’ve done pretty much for the past 3 days…..in and out the house playing in the snow, then coming in and getting warm!
