Artist Carla Daly illustration review

I love this beautiful ‘Irish Jig Gig’ family illustration by Irish artist Carla Daly that we received for Frankie’s room.

Personalized with Frankie’s birth date, time, weight, hospital and family names. The photo really doesn’t do it justice, the colours are so bright and fun. The illustration measures 30 x 40 cm, it’s perfect for framing.

Carla’s really colourful illustrations are unique and perfect for a birth keepsake or Christening gift.  All illustrations and gifts are very reasonably priced and are available in loads of different themes with free post and packaging.

My Left Foot

So I have pretty much had the worst luck ever, which is strange considering everyone around me says I’m the luckiest person they know. I’m the one who wins every raffle I enter and the Bingo jackpots, although I’ve yet to win the Lotto. I went and broke my foot four weeks after giving birth to my baby boy, Frankie. So now I have a seven-week-old baby boy, a demanding four-year-old daughter Kayla, and NO LEFT FOOT! And no, it didn’t happen on my first night out since having Frankie (it’s going be almost 12 months before I can wear six-inch heels and hit the pub again since becoming pregnant). In actual fact, I was having a water fight. A mother of two can still have fun!

About

My Little Babog is an award winning Irish parenting and family travel blog. I’m Kellie, a serial coffee drinker, a bit of a rocker, a professional cake eater, a cloth nappy enthusiast and mammy to Kayla, Frankie, Kadie, and Kenzie. I’m on an amazing journey, winging it all the way. Here you will find my parenting fails and honest tales.

My eldest is Kayla. She can be found making YouTube tutorials on my phone with her Lottie Dolls or searching for fairies in the garden. She likes climbing tree’s, unicorns, snails, my makeup and loves reading. I spend my day’s bargaining, bribing and counting to three with this one. Kayla’s daddy and I are separated and we both co-parent.

Frankie is my koala bear, I cannot piss in peace with this one. We don’t practice attachment parenting but he can be mostly found on my back, hip or leg. He likes PJ masks and Beat Bugs on repeat, the great outdoors, anything with an engine and custard creams. I save his life on a daily basis. I’ve recently just shipped him off to preschool and it’s bleeding deadly!

And Kadie, she made a dramatic entrance into this crazy world in August 2015 with an unexpected home birth. She potty trained at twenty months old, she eats like a horse and loves terrorizing her big brother and her Care Bear. She’s the feisty one, a climber and drives me to the brink of insanity.

And finally Kenzie, the latest addition, born July ’16. She’s a cloth nappy wearer, exclusively breastfed and a snuggle monster. There are only ten months between Kadie and Kenzie, Irish twins. I must be mad. I am mad.

We absolutely adore adventures and you can find us exploring all the hidden gems Ireland has to offer whatever the weather over on my ‘Adventures of Eire’ series or in my Facebook group. I also write for My Kids Time, cover holidays over at Family Friendly HQ and I’ve just taken a job with them doing their sales. You can find me by the kettle, praying for Joe to finish work early or on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. I’m also a Snapchat addict, my handle is @mylittlebabog.
