Top 10 Things You Must Have When Raising Twins

Most would think that taking care of twins is as simple as taking care of one baby, just double the effort. That is actually untrue: raising twins is an entirely different, unique experience. For instance, when changing their diapers, it’s not a simple as doing one then the other after—you’re going to be simultaneously changing the diaper of one twin while restraining the other one. That’s just one example out of several. This is why there is gear made specifically to make life easier for you as a parent of twins, and trust us, you will need them. Front-pouch baby… [Read More]

The Truth about being a Blogging Couple

As many of our regular readers know, my husband and I are what is known as a ‘blogging couple’. Obviously, this is my blog, but did you know that my husband also blogs? His blog, DIY Daddy, started back in September 2014, and I started blogging back in June 2012, shortly after the birth of our twin girls. I started blogging as a way to document our children’s lives, but it was to predominantly share our IVF journey with others. I never thought that six years later, I’d still be blogging, let alone that my husband would also have his… [Read More]

We’re all different and that’s ok

Teaching children about body image can be a pretty tricky subject. At the tender of six, it’s not something I tend to think about talking to our girls about. However, when M came out school one day, and passed comment about a teachers weight, it made me think twice. The lady in question was overweight, and I was a tad surprised to hear M say the lady was fat. When we got home, I talked to both of our girls about how every one is different. Some people are tall, some are short. Some have blue eyes, brown eyes or… [Read More]

PAW Patrol Mission PAW Mission Cruiser + Mini Vehicles Review

Paw Patrol is one of those shows that comes on the TV, and makes my children stop in their tracks. They both absolutely love Paw Patrol, and have their own favourite characters. M adores Sky, and even has a Skye costume! R’s favourite is Chase. We have a few Paw Patrol toys already, but I knew that when our girls saw the PAW Patrol Mission PAW Mission Cruiser and mini vehicles they’d love it! In addition to the PAW Patrol Mission PAW Mission Cruiser which includes Robo Dog and his mini vehicle, we also received two PAW Patrol Mission PAW Mini… [Read More]

For my Valentine

I’m not usually one to write soppy blog posts, but seeing as it’s Valentines day, I thought I’d put pen to paper, (or should that be fingers to keypad?), and see what I could come up with! I met my husband, Nigel, when I was 18, and we’ve been together ever since. 13 happy years. I wasn’t looking to meet anyone that day, but when our eyes met through the shop window I was working in as you drove past, I knew there was something there. It hasn’t been an easy journey. Many people said it wouldn’t last. After all… [Read More]
