Posts Tagged ‘Mummy’

When you are a parent some things happen that can only be described as Sod’s Law, so here is a short list of Mummy and Daddy annoyances!

  1. Children only get really ill when the doctors is shut!
  2. A child who normally sleeps through anything will wake at the sound of the second child crying in the night, meaning you have to deal with two at the same time!
  3. The morning your child/ren sleep in till 9, you are wide awake at 5.30am
  4. The only drinks that get knocked over are dark coloured ones – light coloured non-staining ones are perfectly safe!
  5. You child will love the one TV programme you really really dislike!
  6. The children are up all night the one night you really need to sleep because you are up early for a meeting/presentation/important appointment
  7. You get an invite to the super duper ‘should not be missed’ party the one day you can no way get a babysitter!
  8. Your child/ren will inevitably want what they can’t have – the sandwich feeling you don’t have in, the Zingzillas when it’s not on, sleep when you are visiting people!
  9. The only toy they will want to play at 5 in the morning is the drums!
  10. The moment you get a moment to yourself, there is that much to do you don’t know where to start, and by the time you get going the children are back/awake/needing attention etc…….

There is nothing we like more in our house than a challenge and if it was to include one of my son’s favourite toys – even better!

So thanks to the competition over on the Who’s the Mummy? blog we were able to get out the MEGA bloks and have some fun!

The first stage is always to empty out the bag of bloks all over the floor, I am sure this is one of my son’s favourite parts of construction!

So with his 5 month old sister (Mouse) and Daddy observing, and me with the camera in one hand, the masterpiece began…..

There was a very clear aim right from the start of what we were going to be building

Legs, our two year old son is very focused when playing with his Mega Bloks, he is not happy until his mission is complete, the concentration is clear on his face!

Not sure he was that happy about the camera attention!

Can you see what it is yet?

and it’s complete……………….

Legs showing us how to use the creation

A final couple of adjustments and the creation is complete – A perfect chair for construction play!!

The Nautilus has landed!

I have been selected as a tester for the new GRACO Nautilus Carseat (Group 1-2-3), you will be able to follow my families’ journey with it here, twitter and more!

Once upon a time there was a family of four, they were selected to try out a carseat and it all began when a big box was delivered! It was like Christmas had come early – Mummy was excited at the prospect of a new item to test, Daddy was geared up to set about fitting his new ‘gadget’ and the two year old was soooo excited about his new chair that had a space for his drink!!! The baby was not so bothered by the whole thing, drifting in and out of sleep – well she is only 12 weeks old so can be excused!

So the package was opened and the delightful looking chair was revealed, Mummy’s first thought was that it was big, but actually the term should of been grown up! It is no bigger in bulkiness than the group 1 chair already used and this one covers group 1, 2 and 3 (It goes form 9 months old to 12 years!). It just looked more like a seat than a baby chair!

The two year old is very impressed and can’t wait to get it in the car to use!

Look out soon for a blog about fitting and our first journey with it!!!

So a new blog – where to start?!

I am Kel, a mum of one with a bun in the oven, not long now until I can say mum of two – the next bundle of joy is due the end of March!

I work full time at the minute and also run my little business from home, Piddley Pix is a hobby come business, both my hubby and me love to draw and paint – so decided to sell some of the bits we do!
So apart from being a mum to a very energetic toddler, baking the second one, trying to chill and get some rest, working and doing stuff for Piddley Pix, I have decided to start a blog too – I may need some tips along the way, so don’t hesitate to tell me what you want to hear about, or what you think!

Cheers

Kel
