Ten Things Ive Learnt in My First Term as a School Mum

Being a lover of reflection what better way to kick off 2018 than reflecting on experiences as a  ‘School Mum.’  Being my first-born i had no prior experience or expectation on how everything would come together and plan out so what better way then to put pen to paper and tally up what I’ve learnt thus far.

  1. You ‘Love’ getting rid of them for a few hours but once their in school you spend most days twiddling your thumbs wondering what they’re doing.
  2. Cliques are still a thing,even among the playground pick up chaos. Everyone has their set group of Mums and Dads they congregate too. Good luck if you’re a newcomer, its fair to say it took me a good three months to find a common ground with my fellow pram pushers.
  3. HeadLice are yet to become extinct. Those pesky creepy parasites have managed to divide and conquer and if you don’t get a forwarded email or text from the school weekly informing you that ‘Little Visitors’ are doing the rounds then do your kids even go to school? I use a DIY Headlice ‘repellent’ and Spritz Big Littles hair every morning before we clamber out the door  followed by a  quick check every evening.
  4. Extracting the daily play by-play of what your child did that day is a minefield, you need a BA(hons) and playground lingo certification to make any sense of the ‘I can’t remembers/and or i don’t knows.’
  5. Watching your child in their first christmas nativity is a heart kicker, Big little only sat on the stage and belted out a few songs with everyone else but the big ball of emotions came colliding even before he walked into that rather stuffy assembly hall.
  6. You will spend more time washing and ironing your childs uniform than you do your own clothes. After their first week you’ll be the proud owner of a  lovely set of blue paint stained jumpers and scuffed school shoes but you’ll keep them anyway and just hope their teachers and peers think it happened that day.
  7. Never did the Alphabet seem more tedious until you teach your child phonics (Ah (A) Buh(b) Cuh (c) etc..)
  8. Be ready to give up 30 Sundays of the year for the obligatory  birthday parties..don’t get me started on the christmas cards, you think writing it out for one class is bad, wait until you have multiple children and your writing ‘Merry Christmas’ 60+ times.
  9. If you need to drive to school for pick up you better be prepared to leave half an hour early just to park your car.
  10. They grow so fast! its only been three months but im pretty sure he’s a giant, a giant who has mastered the sassy eye roll and learnt a ray of different swear words.

If you’ve started on your second term as a ‘school parent’ tag me in your top ten list and let me know what you’ve learnt over the past few months.

Reflecting on the old, Hello to the new..

I know many think the whole new year new me posts are overrated but I can’t help but get sentimental when looking back at the last 12 months.

Without a doubt I found courage and strength from a place I wasn’t aware existed. Jacobs “differences” came to a head as I chose for him to have surgery and put his life into another’s hands not once but three times. He taught me the definition of fierceness and tenacity while i watched his journey of recovery.

My big little started reception.Feeling so out of control giving half of my heart and soul to teachers whom I don’t really know, but with good faith I hope they discover the smart witty loving soul as did i.

I started on the journey to rediscover myself and had fun with old and new friends. I found a real friendship along the way, she somehow manages to be the complete opposite of me yet we founded an even ground.

I also went through a school Appeal, failed but gained knowledge, earned my independence back, jumped out of my comfort zone, danced the night away to little mix with my dad, Saw James Arthur in concert, watched my twin brother jump across the globe for a new exciting job and fought for my littles in different situations that arose along the way.

Here’s to another world wind 2018 as I prepare my littlest little to go through the same operations as he did this year. Il also watch him flourish come September when he starts nursery school and probably ugly cry for a good few days over the fact I’l be handing my own little shadow to the education system.

Il  witness my big little grow as he navigates his school years, and teach him a few life lessons along the way.

I’m sure there will be some lows and tears to come but I look forward to experiencing the new and reflecting once again this time next year 💖

 

Happy and safe New Year

Halloween Activities for Children

Halloween is a time that catches not just the attention of teens but sets children imaginations wild, perhaps the idea of diving into their goody bags gives them a pre sugar rush fuel after Trick or treating; or the maybe it’s the Dressing up that fires up their imagination and gets you into the spirit of Halloween. To make life a little simpler  I’ve made a guide of simple activities the whole family can enjoy.

  • Collect Pinecones and make a ‘Spooktacular’ garland with them.
  • 22810500_10159590418730014_1859366337_oVisit a pumpkin patch.
  • Roast Pumpkin seeds.
  • Take an evening walk to admire any neighbourhood decorations.
  • Have a pre Halloween photo shoot with some fancy dress, all you need is a white or the more appropriate black sheet and some blue tack for the perfect backdrop.
  • Make a Spiced Apple crumble.
  • Make an Autumnal sensory box ( you could include crunchy autumn leaves, pinecones,conkers, pumpkin seeds to name a few)
  • Halloween Bath All you need is some  black food colouring and some Jackolantern Balloons. Don’t panic it won’t stain the children, promise!
  • Cotton Ball ‘Ghosties’ – a tactile craft for toddlers using chalk, cotton balls and buttons.
  • Make Monster Hands! Everyone loves a hand-tracing activity, right? Beans and lentils add some sensory fun to this craft.
  • A monster mobile is a whimsical way to upcycle some cardboard toilet rolls and can liven up the hour before bath time.
  • Snuggle up on the sofa with some Cinnamon spiced milk and pop on some family friendly Halloween inspired films such as: Caroline, Casper, Hocus Pocus,  Curious George a Halloween Boofest (2013), The nightmare before Christmas(6+) and Pooh’s Heefalump Halloween Movie.
  • Have a Halloween Tea Party displaying all the crafts you’ve made if your opposed to treat or treating, a simple yet fun way to enjoy Halloween from the comfort of your own home.

However you decide to celebrate Halloween this year please be cautious and respectful of neighbours that may not be so warm to the idea of Halloween if you do venture out. Be safe and remember to have fun.

Child Sling Review

After Jacobs surgery I needed to find a way of keeping his arm elevated and secure, being only two i scoured the internet in search of something age appropriate and that’s when I came across ChildSling.  Now i am challenging  you to find any sling suitable for tots on the high street i can almost guarantee  you will not find anything. Until you end up with a child in an arm cast this  mere oversight is something you would never come across but when your put in the position of desperately needing one,this product gave me my sanity back.

Child Sling is a very Simplistic idea with functional abilities. It’s a family run business making it easy to get in touch with the creator if you have any additional sizing questions or Custom fabric requests. Child Sling has children’s wants and needs at its core while never compromising with quality. This product makes life a little more bearable while going through the ordeal of having a child in a cast whether that be from an operation like Jacob or from an accident at home.

I remember sitting in the car on the way home from Jacobs first operation paranoid and vulnerable wondering how id ever keep his arm elevated after being told the only way to reduce his risks for compartment syndrome was to keep his arm higher than the rest of his body. I came across the ChildSling website and quickly typed out an email to ChildSlings Owner Tracey asking her if she could size up Jacobs arm using a picture as I didn’t have a tape measure to hand and that’s exactly what she did. She replied almost instantly with a sling that fitted Jacob perfectly which I then went on to purchase, it was sent out via next day delivery which meant i had it in my hands by 1pm the following day.

22532033_10159540588635014_885832157_o

Child (and tots) Sling Features:

  • Custom designed fabric of choice
  • Reversible Fleece Lining
  • Comfort Adjustable Neck strap
  • Free Fleece Sleeve to go over the neck strap for comfort
  • Webbing Band to secure arm in sling
  • Baby Design available with extra waist strap
  • Easy to Wash by hand

 

History and Origin of ChildSling

I couldn’t find anything for my twins when they fractured their arms within two weeks of each other. They we miserable uncomfortable and didn’t want to go to school almost embarrassed that it had happened.A child is in a big white hospital sling and every person they meet greats them with’Oh dear what have ‘you’ done?’ My children felt like they did something wrong to make this happen and it quickly had a negative affect on them both.I saw my daughter shrink away wanting to 22447669_10159541413460014_1530301758_nhide.My thinking cap came on at thats when i taught myself how to make ChildSlings. My Children were greeted with ‘Wow what a fantastic sling’. They were proud to show them off and therefore the injury/operation was mentioned as a secondonary subject and not as a blame, turning the experience back into a Positive moment.My twins could not wait to get to school to show them off.I started making slings for a few children that we met in the waiting room at fracture clinic (we were there a lot between the two of them) Children we encountered sat there admiring my children’s slings while they were trying to sit and hide their less appealing hospital sling. Each time we were at appointments the more parents would ask where I’d purchased the slings from, after confessing I made them myself and the fact they weren’t so widely available the disappointment in the air was hard to hide from. Being the compassionate person i am, i vowed to make each child we met their own sling as i jotted down their address in passing and not even once did i go back on my word. So that’s how Childsling started and I’m still here now making slings nearly 7 years later! —Tracey Basta, Child Sling.

ChildSlings Start at £12.99 and slightly increase in price if it’s a custom order or a larger sling. Price wise I believe it’s a very reasonable price range for an organic home run business. I would without a doubt recommend these Slings to any Tot Child or Teen suffering from Sprains, broken/fractured upper limbs or problematic arm injuries. If anyone would like to purchase a sling then click here which will send you directly over to Childsling Online shop. If you purchase one let ChildSling know I sent you! 

A Special Donation of Slings has been made on behalf of Tracey from ChildSling and a donation from myself and has been gifted to Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital London on Wednesday 18th October 2017  for children like Jacob who are going through surgery for Genetic Abnormalities of the upper limbs.

Where i am, Where I’ve been and Everything in-between..

Once again I’ve managed to disappear off the blogosphere world so I thought id update you all with the Ins and outs of why I’ve been so quiet.

If you follow me on Instagram you would probably already seen that September has been a bit of a Crazy one for me. My eldest started Primary School all while I have been at Great Ormond Street Hospital with my younger son while he has gone through three surgeries consecutively for three weeks in a row.

Jacob (younger Son) has had a surgical procedure that in short rotated his forearm 180 degrees. This had to be done in stages as to not compromise the blood supply and lower the risk for compartment syndrome. If you click here  you will be able to go back and read in more depth about what led Jacob to needing the Surgery, and at some point I will do a post sharing an in-depth of what the condition is and try to raise a little bit of awareness for it.

So although this isn’t much for an update ,the past 9 months have basically been limbo awaiting an operation date for Jacob so on part I felt like my life has been put on hold, Now we are one week away from the Plaster coming off for Jacob and a few weeks away from Franks first half term il be trying to kick it up a notch with this posting malarkey and get some routine and order back around here.. ( here’s hoping)

 

To keep up to date a little better, keep checking in with me over at my Instagram id love to see some familiar and some new faces.

Mountain Buggy Nano Unboxing and Full Review

Today we have the super exciting Mountain Buggy Nano to review for you.

mountain-buggy-box

After changing my car to something a little smaller and updated I found myself in desperate need of a new Pushchair. It was essential to me that it’s fold was compact  and could still accommodate an older baby with comfort and most importantly safety at its core.

On my search for a small folding buggy I came across the Nuna luxx Pushchair which we found beautifully made, sturdy and very reasonably priced however  it wasn’t compact enough to fit in my boot (  for reference i have a Ford Bmax Ecosport which has a trunk size similar to a ford fiesta) without taking up the whole thing so i researched a bit more and came across the Mountain buggy nano.

Now the Nano retails between £229-£249 depending on which retailer you decide to purchase from and is available in Black, blue (nautical) and red (ruby)

Mountain Buggy nano promises a Lightweight design at 5.9kg which incorporates a compact size when folded, this lightweight travel stroller can easily fit into many carry-on luggage overhead stows for planes, trains and cars, making traveling with your baby easier and much more convenient as it includes a shoulder carry bag included in the box.

Mountain Buggy Nano is suitable from birth with the added addition of the mountain buggy cocoon that is available to purchase separately. The Mountain Buggy Nano holds a max weight of 20kg (44lbs) which should average you at around 4 years of age.

Features and specifications of the Mountain Buggy Nano

  • Lightweight (13lbs)
  • Compact Fold – height: 51cm / 20″,depth: 30cm / 12″, width 54cm / 22″( with wheels attached )  46cm / 18″ (without wheels)
  • Extendable sun canopy with mesh window when in recline mode
  • Multi recline
  • Adjustable leg rest with foot bar
  • 4 point safety harness with two hand unlock so child can’t undo the harness
  • Inbuilt car seat adapters
  • Lockable straight or swivel wheels
  • Inbuilt rear suspension
  • Puncture proof EVA wheels
  • Spacious dipped basket
  • Carry bag included

 

Now the Mountain Buggy Nano really is compact, I put it next to my regular sized handbag for a comparison and I was astounded  how they sized up next to one another. The same bag pictured below also fits in the basket which should give you a guide on what kind of changing bag you could store underneath. For such a compact fold it features such a roomy seat with plenty of head room perfect for a growing child to get you through the years and stages.

 

To fold the Nano you do need both hands so that is worth baring in mind if you do travel on public transport especially  with a younger child and need to pop it away. To fold you click two buttons either side of the hood and the top half of the frame folds over, you then squeeze the middle part together with two hands and then it folds into itself and secures itself with an auto lock system.

Mountain Buggy nano features a 5 point safety harness which individually clips together, I personally found it So much easier than others where you have to clip two pieces together first and then clunk them in for example; The one featured on the Nano  is super straight forward another bonus is its easy to adjust the length of the straps which is helpful when you’re in a rush.

The Hood is pretty average sized and it does lean against your hands when holding onto the bar if it’s folded up, I cant lie i have used Pushchairs with larger hoods but it does the job and with the Nano being so small you have to be open to compromise.

Recline on the nano is good, easy pull system and has 3 recline postions, i found it easy to put down but slightly harder to get back up with the weight of the child against it but again its a very minor niggle i wanted to mention. The Nano has a ventilation mesh opening secured by velcro when in recline mode, I think this is such a good idea yet super simplistic and cant wait for the weather to warm up to test it out fully. The Nano also has an adjustable footrest perfect for growing and tired legs.

My final thoughts on the Nano is that it is very much an urban families dream with such small fold and one-handed push you could whizz up and down the streets easily. If you’re a family who goes on many outdoor expeditions then im not sure if the tiny wheels could keep up with all terrain on a frequent basis. For my family personally this is just what we needed and i think we would struggle to find another Buggy or Pushchair that can compete with the features the nano has to offer. One minor niggle that frustrates me more than it probably should is the fact the Nano comes WITHOUT a  raincover, the company have included special touches such as a carry bag yet lack one of the most universal item that is standard with most higher end buggies, so please address this in a future update as ive been caught in the rain on a few occasions now and am yet to purchase a raincover separately.

Apart from that we have really Loved Reviewing and testing out the Mountain Buggy Nano for you all.If you have anymore questions or ive left something unanswered please leave us a comment or get in touch via one of our other social media outlets, and do let me know if you have found anything that could give the Nano a run for its money.

Thanks for Reading,

Coco Bow Mum on the Run Bag

I recently reviewed ‘Dawn’(here) another of Coco Bow’s Changing bags and instantly fell in love with the quality and style and wondered if i would ever find another Baby Changing bag that would be my ideal of perfect that could also give their Motherknot collection a run for their money; yet here i am idolising the ‘ mum on the run bag.’ ironic eh?

14002489_10157331368175014_2025976900_o
Coco Bow Mum on the Run Bag

Now, the Mum on the Run Changing bag is the first in Coco Bows collection to be made from Leather Look PU. Many people have a love or hate relationship with ‘faux’ leather but Coco Bow have defiantly done their research and sourced the higher quality grade PU available as in my opinion this bag is as close to Leather without being the real thing that you will surely find.The leather look fabric has given the bag much more versatility and has enabled them to open up the collection to a much broader audience including Vegans!.

The Mum on the Run bag retails for £112 and  is sold directly from CocoBow.  Coco Bow have been generous enough to let my lovely readers have a whopping £10 off ANY bag using the code PAIGE10 so click here to head over to their website and get shopping.

Main Features Of The Bag:

  • Removable lining with four expandable pockets and a zip pocket
  • inner zip pocket, which can be used without removable lining
  • Generous sized front pouch
  •  Easy accessible back zip pocket ( ideal for phone, keys)
  • Mini Sized zip pocket at the front of the bag (perfect for small items such as spare change, cards and lipstick ladies!)
  • Studs on the bottom of bag to protect it when on the floor
  • Lined with Cocobow’s ‘Bow’ logo interior throughout the inside of the bag
  • Unique Tassle Chain
  • Iconic Coco Bow logo Keyring
  • Protective dust bag to keep bag in

 

To give you all an idea on how deceiving the size of this bag is, here is a list of things I carry with me on a day-to-day basis:

  1. TWO Sippy cups 13942729_10157331368250014_1968873207_n
  2. TWO changes of clothes
  3. WetWipes and 4 nappies
  4. TWO sets of snacks
  5. Large purse
  6. keys
  7. Phone
  8.  Pen
  9. Mini hairbrush
  10. Feminine Products
  11. Binky and Muslin
  12. Sunglasses
  13. Jacobs Glasses case
  14. Lipstick ( of course)

For me this bag houses the essentials and extras too. I envision this fitting in with a Parent family of one baby right up to a family with Two toddlers ( like myself) or families with slightly elder children too. As always Coco Bow never fail with sophistication and style and create the perfect bag for stay at mum homes and working ones also providing ease with the removable lining which lets you take this bag from home to office and back again without the hassle in-between.

I hope you enjoy my Changing bag review series as much as i have been trialling them for you. As always if you have anymore question please get in contact.

Thanks for Reading, and Thankyou to Coco Bow for sending us out your Mum on the Run Bag to Review.
