Getting outdoors with children; Deer Park, New Forest

Getting out and about with your children is great for all the family. It helps get rid of excess energy from children and I used to find slowly pushing the pram around would calm my screaming babies long enough for me to grab 5 minutes of sanity restoring time! It doesn’t have to cost money to go out and about, and we’re really lucky in the UK to have some fabulous free parks! Mamas and Papas know the importance of getting out and about easily with your child, and have produced a wonderful infographic on the best parks to visit in London! But it’s not just in London, there are places all over the UK you can visit for free, and enjoy the great outdoors! Continue reading

Our Top toddler essentials!

A simple way to maximise your money..

Whatever your budget, everyone needs to make their money work for them. Every month we carry out a financial audit, or in simple terms we sit down and see where our money goes each month! It’s quite interesting how much this benefits us, as it allows us to really make the most of the money we have. While it’s easy to say cancel that gym membership you never use, or the chocolate club you joined on a whim, can you do anything about bills for things you really need, like household energy?

At 20months..

At 20months your child should.. I sit reading the parenting books much as I did when I had my first child, except now I am all to aware that these books are just a guide, and are not definitive.
