A couple of weeks back Abosca Ireland a baby basket, box and hamper business got in touch offering one of their deluxe boxes for Little Miss Kenzie but I have decided to give it away to one of my readers instead. I’m at the stage now where we kind of have everything we could possibly need. And personally, I think these hampers and baskets are a wonderful idea for a baby shower gift or for a mum-to-be and we are well past that stage! Abosca has a whole range of gift boxes from breastfeeding to deluxe Aveeno hampers. (more…)
I was only in the shops this morning and my local Centra is all set for Pancake Tuesday. The minute you walk in the door there’s shelves stacked with ready made pancakes mix. You know the one that you just need to add milk or an egg or something to the bottle or mixture. And do you know what it bugs the life of me! Pancakes are so simple to make and nine times out of ten we have all the ingredients in our cupboards. It’s literally a case of putting them all into a bowl and mixing them together. And if we happen to be missing an ingredient it’s probably cheaper to buy it than buying the ready made mixture itself. It’s just a big money racket in my opinion (like Valentines!) and really, who has the money these days to be falling for it? (more…)
It’s official. I have two toddlers now. Two little rascals. Two little head melters running around pecking away at the last bit of sanity I have left. I’ve been in denial for quite some time, I didn’t want to accept my little squish was growing up. She’s gone from baby to brat in the blink of an eye. A cute little brat though… (more…)

This afternoon we were invited to hop aboard the famous Rathwood Express and take a trip down to the woodlands with Little Bo Peep and help her find Seamus, her lost sheep, obvs. (more…)
Last month I entered the Herfamily.ie healthy living challenge competition on a whim, I really didn’t think we’d get picked to take part but we did and here we are with just a couple days left of our five-week challenge, and I couldn’t be more proud of our little family. We’ve kicked our bad habits and we’ve become healthier overall once again.
A couple of months back Louise, a reader of blog and owner of LC Photography got in touch to see if I was interested in getting some photos of Kenzie as she is trying to build her current photography portfolio. It so happened Joe and I had been in talks about getting some done as we’ve some of the Toddler and the Wobbler (the poor Big Kid has none!). So I was only delighted. Louise is currently following her dreams in her first year of college whilst juggling home life, two kids and full-time photography course. (more…)
