kids halloween costumes

I’m a sucker for Halloween, who doesn’t love any celebration that includes lollies and chocolate?!!! However, the dress up part I’m not that good at. I’m just not that organised! I don’t understand who has time to lovely craft a perfect Halloween Costume from things they found around the house. I don’t know how to paper mache (I barely know how to iron!) and I have better things to do than spend hours creating a Pinterest-worthy costume that she probably won’t wear. As you can see from above, last year she wore a princess dress and somehow appropriated a hat from somewhere.

spring cleaning

Spring has sprung at last and it brings with it the promise of warm days leading into summer- yay! However, it also brings an expectation of refreshing and renewal- aka ‘Spring Cleaning time’ I don’t know anout you but there are a million things I’d rather being doing besides cleaning and I’ll do every one of them before I pick up that mop (16 and Pregnant marathon anyone?) I’m pretty sure I’d sit through an episode of the Kardashians if it meant no cleaning. So here’s my guide to spring cleaning for you all.

NITS! They are the bane of every parent’s existence. The constant spray/comb/wash/ repeat until they are FINALLY gone. For some reason all three of my kids are nit attractors. You’d think once they were teens you could escape the nits, but not when you have a four-year-old as well- nits are dragged in from kindy at every opportunity.
