Tinsy Winsy Weeny Tot Dolls **REVIEW**

Whenever Evelyn goes quiet you can almost guarantee to find her playing mums and babies with her dolls. She loves playing with her dolls, caring for them and playing mums so of course she wants to bring them with her everywhere we go! However her dolls are quite big and bulky and she gets tired carrying them around quite quickly, so when I heard about these new Tinsy Winsy Weeny tots dolls I knew they could be a solution!

3 toddler friendly Autumn crafts.

Can you believe the summer is over already!? There is definitely more of a chill in the air and the nights are getting darker earlier and earlier by the day. We drove past some conker tree's on our way to school this week and my son was so excited about going to collect conkers again this, which for me thinking about what Autumn crafts we could do.

So here are some of our favourite Autumn crafts, if you do have a go at any of them I would love to see your results over on my Facebook page or Twitter page!

Conker catapillers!

Gather up lots of different sized conkers and get a grown up to drill a small hole through the centre of each one (we used a thick needle and thread for some but it was quite tough so a drill would be quicker). Thread each one on to wool or string making sure you use your biggest conker first as this will be the head, we then placed an acorn casing at the tail end of ours. Tie of the ends of your string and you could now draw a face on your catapiller or even paint it! We used some googly eyes and a pipe cleaner for ours.

My Baby Days Are Over.

This week I have waved both James and Evelyn off for their first days at Junior School and Pre-School! Barely able to believe that this time has whizzed by already and that I'm actually stood here when it felt like only yesterday I had a baby in my arms.

Evelyn is starting pre-school!

As I sit here now labelling up Evelyn's coat and get new water bottle I think back to before I had her, the worry I had about how I would adapt to being a parent of two and of course whether I was having a little boy or a little girl!

Then on Monday 9th June 2014 Evelyn came bursting into the world with an almighty cry, giving us a glimpse into the diva she was going to be as she grew. Evelyn certainly hasn't been the most easy baby or toddler for that matter. Meal times are trying at best and even now 3 years on we still haven't cracked bed time or sleeping through. But saying all that she has brought us so much joy, so much happiness and so many moments of laughter.


Ben 10 Toys **REVIEW**

You may have seen across social media that there is a Ben 10 Twitter party happening with the chance to discover lots of the new range of Ben 10 toys. There will even be a chance to win some Ben 10 goodies for yourself, just make sure you use the hashtag #Ben10Toys to join in!

We received a selection of these toys to show you and to test them out before the chat so here is what we thought.

The reality of the summer holiday...

A few weeks back as schools were winding down for the summer, parents everywhere were panicking. Scouring Pinterest and Facebook groups for things to keep our children entertained for the entire summer holidays, all 6 weeks long of it!

Now its not that I don't enjoy spending time with the kids, I actually love spending time with them and getting to see them playing together. Its also great fun being able to go out and about and not being tied down to the regime of the school run times. However 6 weeks is a long time and I don't know about you but I find it incredibly different to find activities to fill the whole time!

"But Mummmm I'm bored" seems to be the favourite phrase in our house this summer.
