At Charlie’s parents evening, we were told how he is really excelling at reading, math and science. He absolutely loves problem solving and trying to understand why things happen the way they do. When I asked him the question “can you make an egg bounce?” he dissolved into fits of giggles. I think he thought we would drop an egg straight out of the carton and there would be a whole lot of mess. The BBC are launching Terrific Scientific DIY, which is trying to encourages families to try out some DIY experiments over the Easter holidays. These can be simple…

Drip drip drop little April showers! The fourth month of the year already – woah. It’s only when I do my monthly post I realise how fast time really does go by. With a hot month forecast, I’m hoping for lots of blue skies and getting outdoors. Here is a recap of my March bucket list goals and how I got on: Get the stairs sorted. DONE. We have had our under stairs coverted to tthree pull out drawers and a large double cupboard. I keep meaning to blog about it and show you the amazingness as this picture doesn’t…

It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of shoes and handbags. Since having kids, I no longer can splurge money weekly on what I want when I want. I am the ultimate online shopper, by that I mean filling up my online basket with items I am probably never going to actually buy. Over on Pinterest I have a lust list of shoes that I absolutely love and would love to slip on my feet one day. Here is my Pinterest board so if you want to keep tabs on our project make sure you follow me! Follow Twinderelmo’s…

I remember reading a post that a lady had written damning twin parents who dressed their kids the same. I read it with a sense of outrage and amusement that someone would be so ridiculous to suggest how dressing your kids the same could actually affect them. They look so cute! They don’t care! It makes for nice pics and also helps me spot them easily when out. How ludicrous I thought. However as time has gone on and the girls have gotten older, I now realise that twinning for us is wrong and how I regret dressing my girls the…

Today is Mothering Sunday. A day where you show your Mother how much she means to you – whether that be by breakfast in bed, a handmade card, a bunch of flowers or a simple thank you and I love you. But it can also be a bittersweet day for so many including myself. To those who have lost their Mothers, those who desperately want to be Mothers, those no longer with relationships with their Mothers.  Being a Mother has been the hardest yet rewarding title I’ve ever been given. From the moment you see a big cross on a…

In a week where we have witnessed such sadness, it is always nice to look back and try to look for the good in each day. #LittleLoves is the perfect way to reflect on a sad week. Charlie’s school report came home on Monday ahead of Parent’s Evening and I have to say it made me a little teary reading what a lovely all round boy he is. I know as a parent you can somewhat be biased, but there’s never been anyone who knows him well that doesn’t mention his kind caring nature. He absolutely adores his little sisters…

Mother’s Day is a somewhat bittersweet day in our household, but there’s nothing better to put a smile on your face than having your babies shower you with love and little homemade gifts. I am lucky that my husband is such a good present buyer, so I am usually spoiled rotten on Mother’s Day, although a lie in is always the cherry on the cake for me. This year we will probably be spending it at home as my Mother in Law is away on holiday but we often like to send flowers to her online from site such as www.flyingflowers.co.uk to show her…
