The Gender Question – Reveal or Not Reveal??

On 29th April 2016, we have our 20 week scan at the hospital and will be given the opportunity to find out the gender of our second child! This time we have decided we would like to know, despite not finding out with our daughter. Having experienced the surprise of not knowing, and knowing friends and family who found out in advance, I can see both pro’s and con’s to finding out the sex! Here are my thoughts AGAINST finding out the gender: When we were pregnant with our first we decided not to find out the gender and there were...

Easter Bonnet Parade – RAH!!!

As much as I love craft, no one ever warned me before becoming a mum just how bloody difficult Easter Bonnet creation can be! As a mum to a nearly 3 year old, I figured that us making a bonnet together would be fun – We could spend some quality time together, sticking on chicks and buttons and then sit back and gloat with our creation, which she would then wear with pride and not want to take off!

REVIEW – Sebamed Baby Products

When you talk to other women about babies, one of the first things they say is usually something to do with the smell of their hair and their soft skin, with an ooh or an ahhh thrown in for good measure! There is something permanently nostalgic about that brand new perfect silky flesh, and so when you have a baby, you want to make sure you keep your newborn clean and smelling beautiful – as hard as that may be with the inevitable baby sick and nappy explosions. Your baby’s skin is so delicate and precious, that finding the right lotions and potions for...
