Leaving the Boys at home alone!

I just finished packing, still need to write a list for Mr. C. (from school starting time to phone numbers, a list what not to pack in the lunchbox and so on...) and do a few other little jobs around the house but tomorrow we are off to Germany, just Molly-May and me for the wedding of my beloved Cousin this Saturday. 

I am so exited we are very close she is more like a sister then a cousin to me and she also done us the honour of becoming Molly-May's God mum which we are delighted about!
I cant wait to see my Family again and spend some quality time with my Nan and Godparents and everybody else.

It will be the first time EVER that i am leaving Finn behind he did have quite a few sleepovers at Auntie and Uncles House and even went for a trip with them to see some friends for the weekend in Kent. But this time i will be apart from my firstborn for 6 days and 7 nights!

I know he is in good hands and will have tons of fun with Daddy who's doing flexible hours around Finns School Times and will have a brilliant Boys weekend with loads of Adventures but i can't help but feel a bit well funny about it. 

I will miss him loads thank god for Skype so i can say goodnight to him before he's off to bed, it will certainly be a weird feeling.

So my blog will be a bit quieter over the next week but i cant wait to share some wedding snaps with you when i am back!

Summer With Gold Stars Challenge with Parragon

When i went to BritMums Live back in July i meet up with the lovely People on the Parragon Stand who asked me if i would like to join in with the "Summer with Gold Starts Challenge" so i thought with Finn starting Reception this year it would be a good idea to maybe start him off with something over the summer holidays.



I chose the "Starting Phonics" Book which is for Age 3-5 years.
Parragon's idea for the #summerwithgoldstarschallenge included to do 
1 page a day for 30 days throughout the summer. 
Now i have to admit that we didn't finish the book yet we just had way too much fun doing things out and about but there is still the afternoons and weekends to finish our book.

Finn really enjoyed filling out the pages and receiving a gold star at the end of each page.


We defiantly will get some more of the great Gold Stars books from Parragon to help Finn along with his first year of "big school" and with prices starting from only 3.99£ i think there are very affordable and a great way to support your child's skills and i know i will be learning along the way too!

Parragon have a wide range of Gold Stars books from counting, writing, maths, phonics 
and many more which you can check out here.
You can also visit their social networks over on Facebook and Twitter.

Disclaimer: I have been given the Parragon Gold Stars Starting Phonics Book to join in to the #summerwithgoldstarschallenge, but all thoughts and opinions are mine.

NEW Munchkin Latch Bottles & Competition!

Back in June i went to BritMums Live where i meet the lovely Munchkin Team who introduced me to their fabulous new Product the new Munchkin LATCH Bottles.
Now we have been Munchkin Fans for quite a while and my first ever review on my blog back in May 2013 was those of the Munchkin Bath Dunkers who are still going strong!


I was chosen to be part one of a group of Munchkin Latch Blogger Panel to test out the new Latch Bottles and i was very exited when i received this lovely Box full of treats:


Inside i found some little chocolates (which didn't last long!) a muslin (comes in always handy) as well as 3 large bottles, 3 small bottles, some extra teat's (size 3 which come in handy in a few month)  a bottle brush (very handy because i just threw my old one in the bin) and the best thing it was all wrapped up and stored in a lovely white Storage Box which i made into a keepsake box for all her cards.

Let me tell you a little bit more about the Munchkin Latch Bottle Features:

As a new mum, feeding your baby is one of your main concerns. We have reinvented the bottle to be more like the breast. 
Stretches 
A correct latch is achieved when mums nipple reaches all the way back to baby's soft palate. The accordion-style teat on the LATCH™ bottle stretches like the breast, helping baby latch easily & correctly

Pumps 
When breastfeeding, baby controls the flow of milk by applying pressure to the base of mums nipple. The LATCH™ bottle mimics mum by releasing more milk as baby pushes against the teat base

Moves
While feeding, the accordion-style teat flexes as baby moves her head. This allows baby to maintain her latch, decreasing ingestion of air & risk of colic.

Anti Colic Valve 
The unique one-way, anti-colic valve located at the bottom of the LATCH bottle allows for milk to flow while ensuring air bubbles do not travel through the milk.


We have been using the Munchkin Latch bottles over the last few month and have to say there have to be my favourite Bottles so far! We found that when i was feeding her with any other bottle she was gulping down so much of her milk that it made her cough and she had loads of wind after woods. With the Latch bottle she has to suck a bit more to get the milk out but this also prevents her from swallowing too much at once. 


If you want to know more about the Latch Bottles head to the Munchkin Website or visit their Facebook and Twitter Page.

But that's not all the lovely Munchkin Bunch allowed me to giveaway one of their brilliant Munchkin Latch Bottle Starter Set to one of my readers so all you have to do is fill out the Rafflecopter form below. The competition is open to UK Residents only and will close at 11.59pm on the 22th of September 2014.



GOOD LUCK!
