Weekend Activities Even The Kids Will Enjoy

It can be hard to find time to spend with our family in this busy modern world, but the weekend is the perfect opportunity to stop what we’re doing and make the most of the precious time we have with your kids. Of course, our little ones might be more than content watching films for hours on end or trashing the house playing around the house , but we don’t want them to do that all weekend. There’s a chance they’d get bored of sitting in front of a screen all day anyway (it’s probably unlikely). That isn’t to say we can’t all cuddle together and watch a film on Netflix as a family, for example. Sometimes that’s nice. But the point is that it’s nice to go on adventures together as a family.

Any parent knows that putting the kids to bed can be a nightmare. Most families have at least one child who tries to avoid sleep. Most have cunning ploys to stop us sending them to the land of Nod.

They are the one that it seems like nothing can phase! Of course, in real life, it’s a bit more complicated than that as we need to have the ability to do both. To help with this follow the advice below. read more

Introducing #RockingMotherhood Tag

A little while back I wrote 10 Reasons I Rock at Being a Mum…. because I felt that sometimes with all the ups and downs of being a mother it was easy to forget what made us great mothers and concentrate where we fall short or would like to improve. I wanted it to focus on the small but great things mothers do right day after day and celebrate it. The post had an amazing response and Sarah aka The Mumzilla suggested that it would make a great challenge! It’s taken me a long time to actually act upon Sarah’s suggestion but I’m finally introducing the #RockingMotherhood Tag and would love you all to take part.
