Slumber Melodies Lamb

197

This adorable Slumber Melodies Lamb from Summer Infant will be your little oneโ€™s best friend in no time. The loveable lamb is not only super soft and extra cuddly, but will also sooth your baby with lullabies and nature and womb sounds.

Turn Slumber Lamb into Cry Activated Mode and the lamb will automatically turn on to the last setting it was on when it hears your baby wake up. Slumber Lamb also features a hook and loop strap that lets baby take this soft and cuddly companion on the go โ€“ it also conveniently hooks onto cribs, strollers, car seats, bassinets and more!

 

  • Soft and cuddly
  • Features 6 lullabies and nature and womb sounds
  • Cry Activated Mode will turn to the last setting when your baby wakes
  • Hook and loop strap allows portability

 

It is the cutest and cuddliest toy ever! I love it and so does Jack. We’ve been using it for couple of weeks now and it has soothed him to sleep every night without fail

It’s the perfect addition to his crib. Even Harry who is 3 thinks it’s lovely and cuddly, he pinches it from his crib often. The lamb has womb sounds and lullabies but Jack’s favourite is definitely the lullabies.

We love him so much that we have bought him on holiday with us this week ๐Ÿ™‚


 

The only slightly negative thing I could say is that it’s very sensitive because every time my OH coughed, it went off but as the lullabies are so lovely, they never affected  Jack. And I quite like that it’s sensitive because Jack doesn’t always wake by crying, sometimes he just fidgets and moans so it’s great when this goes off and soothes him again. 


These lambs are for sale in Toys r Us now for ยฃ19.99 which is an absolute bargain in my opinion, I highly recommend them!

Wicked Wednesday

Last week my sister came to visit with my niece and my brothers daughter was also visiting so we decided to take all the kids to soft play. The kids were all loving it until Harry spotted a lorry outside and he spent 30 mins watching it picking up shit (literally). Boys!

Scoff Club Review

img_7768

What is Scoff Club?

Scoff Club is a monthly subscription box for people who love retro and classic sweets. It’s a nostalgic trip down memory lane, when you used to pick up some sweets with your pocket money at the weekend, or on the way to school. When you used to grimace as you tasted the ultra sour jellies, or chew for what seemed forever on the Drumstick lollies. If this brings back memories then Scoff Club is definitely for you.

Each month we select a range of delicious retro sweets which are packaged up and sent for you to enjoy.

Scoff Club makes a perfect gift for anyone with a sweet tooth, it’s perfect for sharing in the office or with friends and family. Or, if you’re like us, it’s perfect to just scoff by yourself!

Before I go ahead with telling you something. As you will see the photo’s are not my usual standard. That is because I had to pick up my box from the post office and then I headed straight to my mum’s. My battery had ran out on my phone but everyone wanted a sweet so I took a few quick photo’s of me opening the box and what was inside on my sisters rubbish phone and thought, I’ll take some better ones later. But they were that yummy, I didn’t get a chance to take any more photo’s ๐Ÿ™‚

So we received….

  • Clotted Cream Bon Bons
  • Tutti Fruiti Fizzy Cubes
  • Chocolate Honeycomb
  • Eye Poppers
  • Reese’s Pieces
  • Haribo Jelly Babies
  • Watermelon Rockets

All were yummy and there wasn’t a single bit we didn’t like.

Clotted Cream Bon Bons

Oh my goodness these are devine! Bon Bon’s are a favourite in our house and who doesn’t like clotted cream? I didn’t know they came in this flavour but I will definitely be looking out for them again.

Tutti Fruiti Fizzy Cubes

These are not fizzy, they’re strange. Not in a bad way though. They are not what you expect at all. The only way I can describe it is they foam up in your mouth. It’s very odd, yet addictive. If someone would ask me to describe the taste, I wouldn’t say Tutti Fruiti but I don’t know what flavour I would say. I just know they taste lovely

Chocolate Honeycomb

Now everyone know’s these as being like Crunchie. I love Crunchie’s but because I am very fussy with chocolate (I only like galaxy or cadbury’s) I didn’t like these but the family demolished them.

Eye Poppers

These are mega sour bubblegum. They’re not my kind of sweets but the teenagers loved them!

Reese’s Pieces

Again I don’t like the peanut butter sweets (it’s just for toast and that’s it IMO) but the teenagers loved them. They have both asked for these again.

Haribo Jelly Babies

Iv’e said before that Haribo’s are one of our favourite’s, we love all of the Haribo sweets but the jelly babies are my absolute favourites so I was mega excited when I spotted these in the box and I am not ashamed to say that I ate the pack and did not share ๐Ÿ™‚

Watermelon Rockets

These tasted exactly like watermelon. These were my sisters favourites. They are not hard sweets but they were not as soft as I thought they would be.

 

I would love to receive one of these boxes each month, I highly recommend them.

If you visit the Scoff Club website, you can get 20% off your first box ๐Ÿ™‚

My top items for travelling with children

As a mum of four (two teenagers and 2 younger ones) I’ve been on many trips and holidays and travelled with children so I know how difficult it can be at times. But I’ve used and seen a few items that I think help whilst travelling with children. Some items I’ve used and some I’ve not but I think they’re a good idea and I intend to buy them for our holiday in October ๐Ÿ™‚

In Car DVD Player

These are great for long journeys to keep the kids entertained. We like to let our children read books, colour, play eye spy and other in car games but there is only so much you can do to keep them occupied. These give you a little break if it’s a long journey.

Plastic Boxes

I saw this on a social media site a couple of weeks ago and thought it was a fantastic idea. You know those boxes you get with lots of sections in and a lid? Well you could use them to put snacks in for the kids, like those expensive bento boxes. Genius!

Trunki SnooziHedz Blanket

I love these! They’re a pillow and blanket in one. Perfect for keeping your little ones cosy in the car when they nod off as all children do on a long journey.

Seat Organiser

I love the look of this Diono. When travelling with kids you need so much and it can easily mess up the car or it’s in a changing and not easily reachable while travelling so this is perfect to keep the drinks, wipes, snacks, books, toys etc in one place.

My Carry Potty

When you have children in the car you can guaranteeย they need the toilet at the most inconvenient times. So this My carry potty is brilliant for when they need to go and there are no toilets available. And if there is nowhere to dispose of the pee, it’s OK because you can close the lid until you do find somewhere because this is sealed tight and wont spill.

These are the items I recommend to make car journeys with small children as easy as possible. Good luck and happy holidaying ๐Ÿ™‚

If you have any other items you love or tips, please let me know in the comments x

Don’t make boys play with dolls!ย 

185

Reading the title you may think I’m one of those ‘boys should be boys and girls should be girls’ type people? Well you would be wrong. I have a daughter and 3 sons. My daughter has played with dolls, dressed as a princess and painted her nails but she has also climbed trees, played with cars and pretended to be a pirate. My boys (two of them as the third one is only 14 weeks) do all the usual ‘boy things’ but I have a photo of my teen son (that I won’t show you for embarrassment) in his sisters princess dress and just the other week Harry was playing with a doll, pushchair and ironing board.

182

I definitely don’t think boys should be boys and girls should be girls, I dislike people that do think like that (I don’t hate them because I don’t have the time or energy to care what they think) but I also am not keen on the parents that seem to force that boys should do ‘girls’ things and wear pink and that girls should do ‘boys’ things. You know the ones that post it everywhere that their son is playing with a toy kitchen and have big long sentences how they’re bringing their boys up to be sensitive, kind, know how to cook etc. Well that’s great but I prefer to just let my children grow up how they want. There are boys that like ‘girls’ things but there are also boys that don’t like those things and you know what? Both kinds of boys are great.

And then there’s the parents with daughters that don’t seem to want their girls to be girls. They see a princess book about prince’s and they say how they want their girls to be strong, independent and to not want their girl/s to think they need a man. Well I would love my daughter to be a confident, intelligent and independent women. I don’t want her to think she NEEDS a man to make her happy BUT I also am quite happy for my young daughter to hope to find the right man to make her happy, to dream of a prince that will sweep her off her feet and make her feel like a princess. What is so wrong with that? It doesn’t mean she won’t be a strong independent women. Even they love to dream.

I believe that my children will all make their own choices in life (obviously with some guidance as they’re children) they don’t need it forcing upon them.
