• Monski Mouse Baby Disco: Bank Holiday Fun

    On Bank Holiday Monday we headed off to Sunny Southbank for a baby disco with kids DJ Monski Mouse. We definitely made the most of the journey there, and I even managed a little *almost* argument in Starbucks (standard)! Amelia had queued so patiently, and when she eventually got her moment to pipe up with her order she was ignored by the staff and the lady behind her in the queue ordered over her! Needless to say I made sure she got heard and got her damn Babyccino! Anyway…   The walk up Southbank towards the Underbelly Festival (where the disco was being held) was very cool. None of the…

    Summer Kids Crafts: Simple Ice Lollies

    I try to do a seasonal display with Amelia once every couple of months. We had Valentines, and more recently we had some spring hand and footprint carrots and flowers up. What with all this hot weather – that is so hot for parts of the day we have been stuck indoors with the curtains shut – I thought what better time to crack out the craft box and get making!   For those of you who are aware of my love/hate relationship with glitter, you will probably be surprised to hear that I actually planned on getting all the glitters out today! I had a plan though, which was basically to…

  • Relocation: MummyMamaMum Is Moving

    It’s official, we’re moving! Worry not, the blog isn’t going anywhere. What I’m actually talking about is (arguably) a little bit bigger than that. We – as in the family and I – are moving home. Not only are we moving to a new home, we are moving to a new town, a new city, a new part of the country! Wiltshire is not entirely new to me, I spent a fair chunk of my childhood living in the West country with my grandparents. But that was a very very long time ago, and things are bound to have changed. One thing, however, that has not changed is the huge amount…

  • Father’s Day Giveaway: Don’t Steal My Thunder!

    Around about this time every year I kind of start thinking about what I might want to do on my birthday (June 16th just in case you fancy sending me on an all expenses paid trip to somewhere I can drink coffee and read books in *almost* solitude for a few days). The planning these days rarely lasts too long, though, as I soon realise that Father’s Day is just a day or two after. In fact, in 2019, Father’s Day will actually be on my birthday (I checked). FML. So this year I thought I would put together a gift guide with a difference. Alongside the Father’s Day gifts will be…

  • Sleep Training: Don’t Wake The Baby!

    When it comes to kids and their sleep pretty much all of us are on the constant lookout for that magical sleepy formula, aren’t we?! I want to start by saying that when it comes to you and your kids I literally couldn’t care less what you do, as long as it works for you! Sleep training, no sleep training, putting baby down with a bottle (guilty), gradual retreat, crawling in next to your toddler, hand holding, co-sleeping – whatever! As long as all of you are getting some kind of sleep, high five to ya!   No Fence Sitting There is one thing that I have always had a…
