Family Snacks with Organix #ad

As you can imagine two kids under three have LOTS of energy. This means that we try to get them out in the air as much as possible so that they sleep lights out at night (or at least we live in hope!) We love farms, beaches and nature walks which we are lucky to have plenty of nearby. We…

Sharing my ‘talking tips’ for Speech Delay

Hey guys! So as you will have noticed I have been a bit absent on here since around Christmas.

Our Stay at The Connacht Hotel | Review

A few weeks ago you may have seen on my social media that we visited The Connacht Hotel in Galway. The lovely team over there contacted me at the beginning of the year to arrange a visit to their family friendly hotel and as you can guess I was more than happy to take them up on their offer.

Moving to our ‘Dream House’*

In the not too distant future, we will be packing up and moving house. This is not something we had planned or really want to do but our landlord wants to sell and we aren’t in the position to buy.

Why I Don’t Co-Sleep

Here, my friends is why I don’t co-sleep! I love the idea of co-sleeping, all the lovely pics of parents snuggled up with their little ones and that quality bonding time. However, in my house, the reality is far from that!

Adorable Kids Halloween Costumes

October is a crazy month for us. It seems we have things planned for the entire month so I am trying to get the boys Halloween costumes sorted early. I haven’t decided what to dress them as yet (although everyone says Finn should be a pumpkin because, yano, the hair.). Here are some of the super adorable kids costumes I found…
