What The Tooth Fairy Pays in UK Homes

Sausage is in year 3 now and is in a class of absolutely lovely kids. Her main little group of friends are all fantastic and I love chatting with them while they’re lining up in the mornings. One thing that I noticed this morning is the distinct lack of teeth between them! One of Sausages bestows, who we’ll call Miss Custard, was telling me that she’s lost two teeth I’m the past week! She decided …

You think of ties, shirts, a wallet, a belt, or the kind of thing that he commonly receives for birthdays and Christmas. So why not show your dad how much you really thought about your gift this Father’s Day? …

Rest Well in Sleeptember

Rest Well in Sleeptember

Sleep has always been a funny old thing in our house. Husband and I could not be more different – he’s a lifelong, bona fide insomniac who is sometimes awake for days on end, whereas we have a running joke that I could fall asleep standing up…and I actually DID once! Sausage and BB fall somewhere in the middle. Both sleep really well but neither of them are able to fall asleep particularly early, so …

Do You Let Your Kids Play Sports?

Do You Let Your Kids Play Sports?

Sausage is getting to an age now where after school clubs seem like more of a priority and Husband and I have been doing a lot of research to find things which we think are suitable for her. She loves a bit of rough and tumble and has been asking about trying a martial art for some time. Her hero at the moment is Ronda “Rowdy” Rousey, the undefeated female champion of the UFC, who …

Jeremy Corbyn – A New Hope

Jeremy Corbyn – A New Hope

Yeah, okay, so the title of this post seems rather Star Wars related and I won’t deny that this meme had more than a little bit to do with it: Aside from mildly amusing internet memes though, there does seem to be an air of jubilance and hope surrounding Jeremy Corbyn’s appointment as the leader of the Labour Party. In fact, whilst sitting here on Saturday morning with my daughters, waiting for the announcement to …

With the kids now back at school, we’re well on our way to being back in a routine (despite poor Sausage having been off for the first three days of this week with tonsillitis :sadface: ). Brantano has produced a number of infographics to illustrate what a school week looks like in various countires around the world; here’s the UK Another country that Husband and I really like the look of is the Netherlands. We’ve …

Huggies Pull-Ups Review

Huggies Pull-Ups Review

A few weeks ago, Huggies got in touch to see if we’d like to work with them on a review of their Pull-Ups, and they kindly sent us some daytime pants, night-time pants and a whole selection of other goodies to try out, including a potty. Burrito Baby has got to an age now where she’s really vocal about going to the loo – she’ll often declare “WEE WEE!” or “BOOM BOOM!” just before going, …
