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.
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
If you know me then you will know that I am as far away as having green fingers as you can get. In fact I think the phrase is brown thumbs! I love plants and flowers but the most I am able to do is buy them and hope that they somehow survive. Something that I have noticed that they are more likely to do, if I leave them alone and don’t get involved. So, when I want contacted to try out a new gardening tool, my first thought was that this one is definitely not for me. However, when I found out that tool was actually Plantpal Watering Globes, I thought that this may actually be a way to keep my plants alive for longer!
Can you see what I did there? *see’s tumbleweed and moves on*
In all seriousness though, if you follow the blog then you will know that I have a pair of toddlers that are very fussy eaters. This unfortunately extends to drinks, and the Bear in particular is very fussy over what she will drink and what she deems as ‘yucky’. So when the team from the Appy Kids Co got in contact and asked us to try their products I was keen to give it a go as I’m always looking for good ‘on the go’ options.
We’ve tried a lot of classes with the Bear and they always start the same way. She sits quietly for a few weeks, unsure about everything as she’s pretty shy and it takes her a little while to warm up. We then have a few weeks of her having a great time and getting involved. Next, we get to the stage where she starts to get bored. And when she gets bored she gets disruptive.
We’ve tried a lot of classes over the past year or so with varying success, so when the guys from Rhythm Time got in contact for us to try theirs, we thought why not.
