Our Weekly Roundup #15: Happy 2nd Birthday Clara

DSC_0824This week Clara turned 2. She’s been talking about her birthday for the past couple of weeks, telling everyone what cake she was having and singing happy birthday to herself randomly!

Izzy was at school on Clara’s birthday so Hubby took the day off and we made the most of some rare time just the 3 of us. We took Clara swimming, and then to pick her birthday balloon. She chose a massive Minnie Mouse balloon which then had to come all round town with us. We had babycino treats at Costa before picking Izzy up for the school Spring fayre. Later we all went for tea together and before bed the 2 girls were running around dressed as Neverland fairies playing in a new princess tent. Clara was over the moon with the celebrations and Izzy was really proud and telling everyone that it was her little sister’s birthday.

23 Month Update

It really amazes me just how much Clara grows and develops every single day. She’s like a sponge, just soaking up everything around her. I try to think back even three years ago when Izzy was Clara’s age and I feel guilty that I can’t remember how old she was when she did certain things. At least for Clara I will have these updates to look back on, even if I am pretty rubbish at keeping up with them (it’s been 3 months since our last update!).

Kiddyum frozen meals: a quick fix for busy families

Family life can be hectic at times – it can be a juggling act trying to manage work, the nursery drop-off, school runs and all those extra-curricular activities. And that’s before you even think about making a start on the housework. So when it comes to mealtimes, cooking healthy meals from scratch is probably the last thing you have time for!

So when Clara and I were asked to try out some Kiddyum frozen meals they sounded like they could be the answer. On the days I’m not working, I’m chauffeuring my eldest daughter to after-school dance classes and swimming lessons, so by the time we get home the kids are starving and don’t want to wait ages while I cook tea. I need to get something on the table pretty quick, but at the same time I want to make sure my children are eating healthy and nutritious food. (more…)
