When you’ve got twins, they come as a pair. They’re always together, you take them everywhere – together. It’s hard to think of them as two different children. So when Hubby suggested that we split-them-up and do something separately this weekend, my first thought was “And do what?”….

Bath time in our house, with twins, is never dull! Someone either needs their face washing, hair washing, teeth brushing or wants to just play! And Harry and Lottie love to fool around and splash Mummy and Daddy! That’s why we were delighted to recieve some funky and fun products to try, from the lovely people at Childs Farm.

We’ve recently got into Planes (the movie). And Planes 2. Harry got them for Christmas from his darling Nanny and Grandad.

However, as I have recently discovered, these are only a very small number of the social media networks that exist. And (to be honest), I haven’t even heard of most of them. So as a parent, this lack of…

As you may well know Harry and Lottie started preschool this week. A day that we have been looking forward to and preparing for. I was hoping that on the day there would be no tears. Day one went really well (I stayed for it) and they loved it. Lots of drawing, playing and singing! The staff and the other children were very nice and…

As you may have noticed, Harry & Lottie have been getting very excited recently about an upcoming (important) day. A day that is upon us this week. First day at preschool. Eeeeeeeeeeeeek! I call it ‘preschool’ but it’s actually a playgroup / preschool. The twins are only 2 years and 3 months old, however it is a session that they will attend (twice a week initially) until…
