The Rise of the Threenager

Everyone knows about the terrible twos, and most, if not all parents of toddlers will, at times, experience the joys of the toddler tantrum. The complete meltdown over the simplest thing, the hyperactive yet overtired energy of a someone who missed their nap, or the embarrassing moment where you are completely and utterly humiliated in public (see – The Day My Toddler Made Me Cry). But you can be forgiven for hoping that when they turn 3 you can kiss them goodbye. Oh no, how wrong you are – the turn of 3 brings with it something far far worse,...

REVIEW – Party Bags & Supplies

Last week my daughter turned 3 *sob*. I cannot believe how fast the time has gone. It feels likely only yesterday that we bought her back from the hospital as a tiny little bundle in her car seat! 🙂 As she is getting older, she has made more and more friends at nursery, and this year, we had our first ever “proper” party, where we invited a number of children to attend including nursery and family friends alike. Erin was VERY excited, and kept checking that all her friends had been invited! 🙂 As exciting as parties can be,...

REVIEW – Father’s Day Cards

Erin is a MASSIVE fan of Despicable Me – so much so, that whenever we go anywhere, she appears to be able to pick out a Minion from a mile off – most recently in the supermarket! With Father’s Day fast approaching, I wanted to get Daddy a card from Erin & Bump that featured her favourite characters! There are obviously a number of online card retailers at the moment, so knowing where to start to get the design you want can be a bit of a minefield. We were introduced to – the home of official licenses to...
