Should I Home Educate My Children?

Home Education is a taboo subject. Frowned upon, misunderstood. People envision home educated children to be feral, with no social skills outside their own home and no understanding of the world. But in all honesty that’s a load of rubbish. Home education isn’t for everyone and that’s ok, but it’s definitely for us. We are […]

What a Child Should Know By Age Seven

There are so many lists of child expectations by ages: the age they should be potty trained by, the age they should settle on their own, the age they should know how to write their name, the age they should know their times tables, the age they should be able to read, the age they […]

Driven To Distraction

Car journeys with kids are one of the most stressful times of any day. My two can’t even breath in the direction of each other without it causing serious chaos in the back seats! Siblings are just divine! The engine doesn’t even need to be switched on for the stress to begin. Making sure their […]

Memory Making & Blah

Memory making. A major phrase used on social media, and in hashtags. Have you seen it? Of course you have! If you’ve followed my site for any length of time you know I am all about the memory making, most likely OTT some of the time, but I am desperate to ensure my boys have […]

Things I Will & Will Not Do As A Parent

I absolutely love new parents and their naivety. They have all these fabulous plans and ideals for their future life as parents. They bring home their bundle of joy and have all sorts of plans and dreams going through their little post-pregnancy minds. Let me just stop you right there. NONE OF IT WILL HAPPEN! […]

City Challenge Birmingham

We were recently gifted some spending money by Hotels.com to explore the area of Birmingham. Please note all views are my own. We have loved exploring Birmingham and hope to explore a little more before August is out and maybe delve a little deeper into the bustling town on a less busy day for my […]

Monster Jam is one big monster truck competition full of mud, excitement, stunts and noise! (You’ll definitely need some ear defenders for the younger fans!) We got to see some of the monster trucks […]
