The one about fruit!

Fruit, One of your 5-a-day right. Well, there is certainly no trouble getting this stuff into the Little Ones, in fact I am actually worried that they eat too much of it, can you actually eat too much fruit?

Paw Patrol Rescue Track Sets- Zuma and Skye's Lighthouse and Marshall's Pet Rescue

Little 3 has now reached the grand old age of 27 months and has begun to show a lot more interest in watching the television with the girls and with a greatly improved attention span he will sit and watch for quite a while if you let him. A current favourite programme of his is Paw Patrol and he just loves the character Marshall the most. 

When Spin Master recently got in touch and asked if we would like to road test their Paw Patrol Rescue Track set it was an instant 'Yes' as I knew they would be a hit with Little 3.

Close Parent day and night cloth training pants

I mentioned in my last cloth training pant review that we have been trying out several different brands of washable cloth training pants over the last few weeks, this post is all about Close Parent training pants.

Close Parent pop in nappies were our go to cloth nappy when Little 3 was younger and we loved them. It only seemed right to stick with the brand we trusted and loved to try their training pants too. Not only do they sell day time ones for leak prone toddlers, they also sell the most useful potty training product I have come across- leak proof night time training pants, you can read how we got on with those below.

#PrezzoLaFamiglia- A giant bowl of pasta- don't mind if we do!

We were recently invited by Britmums and Prezzo to take part in their #PrezzoLaFamiglia Challenge. The challenge was to try out the NEW Prezzo LaFamiglia pasta sharing dish as a family and share our thoughts. Well, with pasta being the favourite meal of three members of our family and the thoughts of a giant bowl of pasta that I didn't have to cook, we were totally up for it.

We're forever blowing bubbles

'5...4...3...2...1, Right, Please get out of the bath NOW, I am not asking again'. You would think it would be a battle to get small people into the bath but no, in our house we have to battle them to get out! The Little ones love the bath especially the younger two, Little 3 always asks 'Avin a bath Mummy?' every night as we are getting down from the tea table and more often than not the answer is 'Yes'.

Da da da da....superundies!!

Little 3 has now been in pants around 6 weeks and he has done really well, however, he has a tendency not to tell us he needs a wee if he is busy doing something. This means he is still having the odd accident now and then, particularly at the end of the day when I am busy in the kitchen cooking tea and miss the signs that he needs to go. 

I was getting a bit fed up with a toddler wandering into the kitchen soaked to his socks and did a twitter shout out for some recommended cloth training pants to help contain the mess.

What the Little Ones wear- it is all in the detail

I don't know about you but I really don't like children's clothes that have those plasticy transfer pictures on the front, they look fab to begin with but after a few washes they look like they are faded or starting to crack or peel and even decent brands that last a little longer look tatty very quickly.
