This is a book that really surprised me!  I knew it would be good, but it is so much more than I was expecting.  Festive Flamingo, by Shaula Maitland, is a magical collection of Christmas meditations for children that is easy to understand, simple to visualise and effective at enabling you to relax and meditate.  

Our lifestyles are becoming increasingly busy and with the festive period...

Becoming a parent is one of the most amazing things that can happen to you throughout your life. But as a dad, there are obvious differences in the pregnancy experience from what our partners encounter. It doesn’t make it any less of a rollercoaster ride though; there are high and lows, it’s a manic pace, and there will be both fear and exhilaration throughout.

Whether it was planned or a surprise...

Fitness has always been in my blood. I have always enjoyed running and playing. My mum has often said how active my brother and I were. Poor Mum! 

This all led me down an exercise path which I have loved. I did the, ‘2 workouts a day for 5 days a week’ at university and I have played many sports - I always loved the pre-season training.  In recent years I have also done the, "I am so tired of...

I love a book that can help teach children something and this book has a great moral. We were kindly gifted 'The little girl and the lion' by author Matt Bacon and have enjoyed reading it with ZaZa.  It is a light-hearted, short rhyming book about a young girl and her clumsy lion friend with an underlying message that you should not take your friends for granted. 

The illustrations are sweet,...

Is it worth taking your child to a music and movement class? Although I am biased, I would say definitely! I see first hand each and every day the huge scale of benefits for children that attend my classes. 

Exercise and Mindfulness 

I deliver Jiggy Wrigglers sessions to ensure that they have just the right mix of movement and relaxation. I want children to be active but also have time to chill bot...

Interactive books are fantastic for keeping little ones engaged.  There are such a variety of books available from being able to touch textures, lift flaps, make sounds and even play peekaboo with a mirror.

We were kindly gifted 'Lift, Pull, Slide, Find ABC' by Scott Barker and we absolutely love all the features!  Each page is unique in its design, beautifully illustrated, and has been well thoug...

We were kindly gifted 'The Adventures of Violet and Bruce, Destroying the Noise Machine' to review which we have enjoyed reading a number of times together.  It is a light-hearted fun book about a little girl and her pet sausage dog who are on a mission to defeat the noisy vacuum. 

Each page has fun and engaging illustrations for little ones and there is a catchy rhythm to the story.  A lot o...

Hello!

It has been a little while since I wrote a blog...more than a little while actually! We welcomed a little boy to our family in April and we've been enjoying some time as a family of four.  I'm hoping I'll be on here a little more frequently now but obviously aside from spending time with my little ones, my main priority is making sure you all get your Storyboxes!  

I can't believe...

Has anyone else been told this phrase since having a child?

As a first time Mum, I can definitely relate. Some days feel more of a struggle than others and that it is never ending.  Other days seem to all blur into one – I’ll be honest, I don’t know what day of the week it is half the time!  What they all have in common though, is that they are precious moments spent with our little one(s). Time f...

“They’re going to learn what?!” a mother said to me recently.

You’d think I’d just told her that her first born would be taught algebra on day one but no, we were merely chatting about the aims and objectives for Reception children. She had no clue and I had clearly opened up Pandora’s Toy Box of school secrets.

So what is school? What does it mean for your child?  

Reception is a fun-filled ye...
