Summer seems to have come early with the hottest April since 1949, and if you’re like most people, you’ll be considering getting out the barbecue and potentially heading out on a road trip. Indeed, when the sun has got his hat on, England can be a great place to live and travel – yet despite the weakened pound, many families are still jetting off abroad in search of guaranteed sunshine, both to Europe and more faraway places like America.
Today is National Siblings Day, a time to celebrate those siblings you love. Or bicker with constantly if you are my two! It’s nice to acknowledge your siblings I think. As we have all got older, with busier and fuller lives, it’s hard to stay in touch. You grow up in each others pockets, living in the same house, doing everything together. I remember the day I went to uni. I felt completely lost. There is 10 years between me and my sister, so she was 8 when I went to university and I am pretty sure she wouldn’t have known what was going on. My little ones are 18 months apart, so I can imagine they will very much be a part of each others lives growing up. It’s days like today that make me feel grateful for family.
The summer holidays are approaching and with it – sun, fun, and family time! To ensure that your whole family has the best time this summer, however, it’s time to plan ahead. There are a few things you can do to prepare your home and your budget in order to have the summer of a lifetime, and all you need to do is follow these easy tips:
Isla loves her Num Noms, she really wants to collect the entire set. We didn’t realise there was new nail varnishes to collect in Series 4, Polish-it Noms. We had a fun craft afternoon after our Num Noms Easter hunt. The girls had a lot of fun searching for the collectibles all over the house. Then had some quiet time crafting in our playroom.
We were asked to set up the best Easter Sunday fun for our family using the products on the John Lewis website. There is so much choice, my imagination ran wild. I had so many ideas and I wanted to share them.
As any parent will relate, keeping the kids toys tidy in the house can be hardwork. Making sure you have the right storage options and also making sure the toys are accessible to the children. We decided bunk beds saved us the best amount of space at the moment, as the children share a room. When we buy our own house and the children have their own bedrooms, this will not be the case. So I am starting to look at options that will be perfect for saving space.
The toys in this house are everywhere. It’s the smallest ones that cause me the most problems though: Lego! We’ve all seen that doodle online where the Mum is stepping on Lego all the time. That’s our house. Noah is a typical boy, loves his Lego and Cars. Isla loves her dolls and soft toys. Keeping them all tidy is hard work, so I like to make life easy by having the right storage.
How beautiful is it to receive a handmade gift? Something that someone has spent hours making. When it comes to handmade gifts from the children, it’s even better. They have such creative minds, the sky is their limit. Handmade gifts are the perfect idea for a Mother’s Day present and Handmade at Amazon have made it really easy.
Parents are responsible for looking after their child’s health and teaching them healthy habits for their future life. As a parent, you want your child to be as healthy and happy as possible at all times. From a young age, getting your child into excellent habits for dental and oral health care will ensure that they have healthy teeth and provide them with the knowledge and skills they need to continue this throughout their adult life. Here’s what you can do to make sure that your child’s dental health is well cared for.
Your family home is a place of love and light. Not only will it allow for a beautiful childhood, but it will inform the memories your children craft during this time. They’ll cherish this for the rest of their life, so it could be considered quite important to get this right. Obviously, trying to forcefully inject memories can be unnatural and quite strange, so instead simply keeping your home as wonderful and beautiful as possible can help them understand they are loved, and allow for better personal development as they grow into adults.
