Elves Behavin’ Badly

Elves Behavin’ Badly

I’m a bit late blogging about it. I’ve been ill with one thing or another for the vast majority of the past 3 months. This has put me behind with absolutely everything! Obviously, Autumn, my day job and any paid commitments on the blog have had to come first.

Anyway, a couple of months ago I got an email saying that I’d won a competition with Elves Behavin’ Badly. It was something I entered at Blog On Xmas. It was a total surprise, as I thought it had probably already been drawn by then! The elves at the event loved my turkey hat and that clinched my prize! View Post

Win a Paladone & Good Bubble bath time fun bundle!

Win a Paladone & Good Bubble bath time fun bundle!

Do your kids enjoy bath time? Bath time with Autumn is one of my favourite ways to spend quality time with her. She’s just always so happy splashing around in the bath and playing with her bath toys. She gets so excited!

I’m excited to say that two fantastic companies are giving you the opportunity to make bath time just as fun with your children too! On the other hand, if your children don’t like bath time, these may help to encourage them. Please take the time to get to know Paladone and Good Bubble a little better, don’t just scroll past!

When should you first take baby to the dentist? (+WIN)

When should you first take baby to the dentist? (+WIN)

So, when should you take your child to the dentist for the first time? There seems to be a lot of misinformation around about when you should take your baby for their first check up. Shortly before Autumn turned 6 months old, I went to a class at one of our local Children’s Centres. As well as learning about weaning, we learnt about dental care too. It turns out that where I’m based in Medway there’s a scheme where babies are given a Medway Smiles passport. It’s encouraged that they first go to the dentist between 6 and 8 months old.

Here’s some more information how to look after your baby’s precious teeth as well as a giveaway! The prizes you’re in with a chance to win will help you to protect those pearly whites.

Tutora Best Parent Insight Blog

Tutora Best Parent Insight Blog

I have some exciting news today. If you haven’t already seen the badge on my blog over the past few days, I’ve been shortlisted for Tutora’s Best Parent Insight Blog! I’m very excited about this, as it’s the first time I’ve got recognition for my blog from an organisation. Of course it’s been wonderful when I’ve received ‘awards‘ from other bloggers too though.

I’ve dabbled with blogging over the past 12 years, but this is the first time I’ve taken it ‘seriously’. I’ve quite literally poured my heart and soul into this blog since I started writing it at the end of January. The fact that people actually read it and enjoy it is amazing, but I love the fact that I’ve helped other people. View Post
