We have been having fun watching the Olympics and it inspired us to visit @cansportshall. Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame is a great place to take your kids. They have so many fun activities like a ski jump simulator, hockey/football/soccer/baseball/basketball games, wheelchair racing, shadow boxing, and a media room where you can become a sports announcer. The boys even got to hold the 1988 Calgary Olympic torch! I’m not sure why they were trusted to do so but they loved it! 😂 Children 3 and under are free, youth (4-18 yrs) admission is $8 and adults are $12. You can also visit the Calgary Attractions site to find a BOGO coupon! 🙌🏻⛷🏒🏈⚽️⚾️🏀🥊 #InspireCanada

3 kids, two Mamas, a play date and an amazing workout ✅
.
I’m all for multi-tasking ... and when I can get a workout in / friend time / let my crazy #threenager get some play time in all at once ....I’m all in!! 🙌🏻
.
Grab some towels or paper plates and try these amazing ab workouts out!!! 10 reps / repeat 3 times
.
We may have had to pause a few times during this, but we got it done!! 💪🏻 I always say surround yourself with those who have similar goals ... they help keep you motivated and inspired! 💕
.
Tag a workout buddy and go! What move is your favorite?

We have had the best day at @warwickcastleofficial today, making the most of our new merlin passes. The girls have had such a fabulous day, I can't believe how good they have been (no moaning, no whinging, no tantrums, it's been truly amazing!!!) and they were brilliant at climbing what felt like never ending steep staircases to get to the top of the very highest tower! A lot braver than me, as I have a real but utterly ridiculous irrational fear of such staircases (though I just got on with it and tried not to show it!!) I might have been heard to say 'I thought it would be a bit less actually castleish [not a word] as it's merlin' 😂 This is definitely not the best photo, (we could be anywhere and I seriously need to up my selfie game and also somehow stop Sienna doing that ridiculous pose every time a camera is on her 😳😂) but I love it all the same! #yesiknowmycastlestaircasefearisstupid #justgetupthestairsalready #theresreallynoneedtoholdonfordearlife #shockhorrorwarwickcastleisverycastleish #whoknew #theclueisinthename

• L O V E • How cute is this little lady in her cloth bum?! As her mother I may be biased but she's such a doll. I had planned to pop her in this gorgeous new @babaandboo print for valentines day but she wasn't very well. Now she's on the mend and loving life! 💕 - It's a miracle I even managed to get my camera out today, and of course she pooped as soon as she got the cloth on 😂

I absolutely love this photo from today 😍 We had a lovely couple of hours at @hodsockprioryinnotts the sun was out and we walked round the gardens and into the woodland to the small obstacle course. We also enjoyed a cake and a drink in the cafe marquee. More photos in stories & blog post and video coming soon 😊 🌿

Words cannot describe how proud I am of this little man. He has been poked and prodded at multiple times today but has remained happy and cheeky throughout. It has been long and tiring but being able to look over at his smiling face makes everything else just melt away. Seeing how he has coped with today makes me certain that he will come out of theatre tomorrow fighting and the happy, healthy boy we know he is ❤️ Now to try and get some shut eye 💤💤

So this little guy has scarlet fever!
He's being such a trooper bless him, although he's being a pain in the bum with antibiotics! Fingers crossed he feels better on Friday for our centre parcs trip 🤞🤞

Did you catch the live video in my Instagram stories today? (Its still there ATM!) My big boys made did a live cook-along video recipe and made Basil & Parmesan Soda Bread. Such an easy bread recipe to make with kids as it’s ready in an hour. You can add any herbage and hard cheese that you like, it’s perfect for serving up with soups. Link to recipe in bio - you’ll also find a trick for making a substitute for buttermilk as well. So what are your thoughts on kids making cookery videos? Does it inspire other kids to cook? Or do you just want the recipe plain and simple? Please comment below, would love to know what you are think x

In our bid to try and make a difference even though it’s the smallest difference we’ve switched to old fashioned glass milk bottles and I had my first delivery from Chris my milkman from @freshmilkandmore. There’s no denying it, it is more expensive but it is organic and not only are we trying to be more plastic conscious but they also look seriously cute in the fridge. Crazy to think how far we’ve come in time yet to be more globally conscious we have to go back in time. Would love to know if you have any tips for going plastic free in your house?

I’m attending First Aid and CPR training today as part of my @fitcollegeqld @fit_college certification. I have been qualified before so I was showing the boys how to perform CPR; now they’re resuscitating each other. Or something like that 😂😍😆 #brothers #cpr #fitcollege #toddler

Are you a Lego lover? We adore it in this household, so when we saw it that a great Brick Safari was coming to Cardiff Bay, we had to take a look! There were 12 huge wild animals in total with this Lion being the focal point (taking 4 builders 400 hours and using 65,000 bricks to create it!) The kids loved it and also took part in the safari competition, all in all, a lovely morning. Millie was adamant she wanted to start taking pictures, so here I am in one. They are there till Sunday 25th Feb. 
Gets me thinking about what we could build with all our Lego though...what’s the biggest thing you’ve built?! #ukparenttravelbloggers  #southwalesparentblogger  #havekidswilltraveluk #twoyearold #fiveyearsold  #travelbloggers #familytravel #igerscardiff  #wearetravelmums #pottyadventures #explorerkids #femaletravelbloggers #kidbo #ourtribetravels #almostfearless #kiddiemundo #brightbricks #lego #lpkids #familyadventure  #wanderlustkids #familytravel #travelwithkids  #adventurekids #adventuresinparenting #fearlessfamtrav #wildatlanticway #snaphappybritmums  #myhappycapture #rememberingthesedays

Tiggy’s brothers have their half term this week and the sun is shining yay! We’ve had such a lovely day exploring an outdoor museum with friends and this lolly that Tiggy’s eating I may just need to buy a box of them as it’s kept her quiet for quite some time today 🙊😁 #adventureisoutthere #neverstopexploring

Tuesdays are just not my best day!! I love Monday, the start of a fresh week the chance of change and a chance to make new habits and start new things. Tuesdays are never a great day for me. It seems I peak on a Monday, and then Tuesday reminds me that I still need to actively get my s**t together. I haven’t had the best day, see stories for my rant, but in all honesty even when I’m in the worse moods, and my husbands jokes and attempts to make me smile are just not cutting it, this lad knows what to do. He sits on my knee, demands I can still type at my desk and he kisses my cheek and tells me I’m the best! I’m lucky. This boy is part of me and he is literally part of my world. He’s always happy, always smiley, and just a ball of energy. Sometimes I’m not sure what I’d do without my family. They are always the ones to cheer me up and make me feel good once more. Now I’m having a glass of wine and hoping an early night will I will rock Wednesday. .

Wasn’t the weather amazing today? ☀️ We spent most of the day pottering around in the garden (or what will be the garden when we’re finished with it!) 🌿🏡 // How did you spend today?

We went to DANCE CLASS this evening and it was even more insane than I expected. 😂 We've tried to get A interested in classes in the past (football, lasted 5 minutes, martial arts, threw himself into the class full of energy only to inform us he 'never ever wanted to go again') so when he bounded over to me this evening exclaiming he wanted to come back tomorrow, I knew we were onto a winner. I don't know why I didn't see it before as he's always dancing at home and he's got the moves (and the energy, my goodness) but fingers crossed, we've found something he loves to do. Jesse's actually been stealing some of his moves and seems to want to sign up himself, he's very good at rolling-over-on-head and the one-leg-in-the-air trick.

Growing up, I was never a girl’s girl. I never felt like I fit in with the other girls. So I was a “guy’s girl”. I had a lot of guy friends for a while but... when little boys turn into raging hormone monsters, sometimes our friendships got mistaken for other things & I lost a lot of “friends” that way. As a result, I spent a lot of adolescent years bouncing around, intimidated by women, not quite sure where I fit.
.
It actually wasn’t until very recent adult years that I truly understood the value of GREAT girl friends. How important that is. How much I needed that. But mostly, how important it is to have the RIGHT girl friends.
.
Coaching showed me that. As I dove in deeper into this new community, I saw how vital it was to my success in every area to have a super strong female support system.
.
I want THAT for my daughter. For her to embrace her girlfriends. To be the friend that isn’t afraid to be herself & love others the way they are. To show love & kindness to those who need it most. To know that girls don’t have to be scary, they are a powerful ally when you surround yourself with the right ones.

Is it bedtime yet? Two of these three have been tucked up in bed for half an hour or so, the biggest is still out at Cubs. We had a bit of an accidental late night last night, which probably wasn't ideal for the first day of a new half term but I think we all got through the day in one piece.
I've had a busy day today with a blog shoot and catch up with @letstalkmommy (you can see some comedy outtakes on my stories), some filming for YouTube, a gym session and swimming lessons for Chlo tonight. I won't deny being glad to be sat down in front of the TV now! I'm teaching tomorrow so need to get an early night.

We finally had a day out this month! Just me and F today though. E was in nursery and my husband at work. I took F to our local National Trust property. We joined an organised welly walk, played at the park, explored the gardens and had hot chocolate and cake in the cafe. I don't remember the last time it was just the two of us. Needless to say she loved every minute.

We finally had a day out this month! Just me and F today though. E was in nursery and my husband at work. I took F to our local National Trust property. We joined an organised welly walk, played at the park, explored the gardens and had hot chocolate and cake in the cafe. I don't remember the last time it was just the two of us. Needless to say she loved every minute. . . #mycolourfulkids  #wheremywelliestakeme  #outdoorsandfree  #rememberingthesedays  #myfamilyadventures  #littleloves  #lifecloseup  #littleandfierce  #myhappycapture  #thisparentlife  #littlefierceones  #thismamaloves  #countrykidsfun  #ukexplore  #whatevertheweatherkids  #curiouslittleexplorers  #scenes_not_screens  #freerangekids  #letthemexplore  #dresskids_likekids  #freespiritedchildhood  #worldoflittles  #happylittlebuttons  #developinglife  #ourplayfulstyle  #awanderfulchildhood  #littlefamiliesofig  #kidswhoexplore  #themagicineveryday  #adventurelikebeatrixpotter 
Essie’s not been very well the past few days - she’s got a really nasty cough so is struggling to sleep at night, which means I’m not getting any sleep either (but what else is new!) So today we’ve just had a day at home with lots of cuddles. I think I might take her to the doctor tomorrow, I’m always worried about being OTT though! What makes you decide whether or not to take your little ones to see a doctor? Oh yeah, I finally got round to framing some pictures. It’s been on my to do list forever! My friend @whatkatysaiduk picked up the white frames from good old Ikea for me, and the grey ones are from Tesco! #parentlife #floralfeminist

This is the face of a little boy who learned how to clap on Sunday and has this big grin every time he does it!

I wonder if he’ll be a bookworm like his mama... 📚 (Yes I am still reading A Wedding at Christmas - not much time to read with a newborn, who knew 😂)

The most expensive jewels in the world would never feel as good as these little hands do around my neck. (Actually sounded a little creepy when I read it back, but you get my drift) Even if he has an uncanny knack of wanting cuddles like this, the moment I try putting make up on. I take it as a hint that he prefers me au natural, or maybe just likes watching me flinch as I prod mascara in my eye! Who knows, but it’s a bloody lovely feeling. Don’t you agree? .

4 days without a dummy, I’m so proud of this little one. It has been hard, I think for me and well as for her. I realised whenever she cried, I used to automatically reach for the dummy to calm her. Now I have to think of other ways to distract her. Like today when she had a meltdown in the library, I got out a train book and that calmed her. Random. Let’s see how tonight goes!

This outdoorsy boy would spend the whole day outside if he could! So I’m looking for inspiration what do you do with your little ones outdoors? He has taken to standing by the door pointing to outside he even gets his coat and shoes ready 😂 #outdoorliving #outdoorsykids #lifeoutside #lifeofaoneyearold #theadventuresofernie #charlies100daychallenge #fatherandson #momentsoverposes #myeverydaymagic #mylifethroughalens #myhappycapture #relishandcherish
So tea time this evening went a little something like this. All four of us, sat around the kids table in the playroom, sharing some sweet potato wedges when the Woodster disappears under the table. Now, I don’t think much of it as you know, almost two year olds and table manners aren’t quite compatible are they? So I’m munching away and I say ‘why does it smell like...’ and before I can even finish my sentence the dog pelts past me at the speed of light with the contents of Woody’s nappy in.his.mouth 😱💩😱. Woody has managed to carefully unfasten his nappy, poop on the floor under the table and the dog decided that it was too good to refuse and had it as an evening snack?!? By this point the entire room stinks of poop and I’m genuinely concerned that Nora is also going to pee her pants (on the brand new sofa might I add) from the hysterical laughing that’s going on. Needless to say, the rest of those wedges went uneaten 😂🙈. There is literally never a dull moment in this household 😂💩😂 #mykidthecarpetpooper #mydogthepoopeater

BIG BROTHER
.
This little boy has taken to being a big brother so well. 
He calls Eli his baby. 
He gives him hundreds of kisses and cuddles every day.
He always asks if he’s okay when he’s crying. 
He’s made me one proud mama. I couldn’t ask for more from him. 
I mean his selective hearing could go, but, he is male after all!

So proud of this one. There were tears a plenty at his first ever swimming lesson, but he came out {mostly} smiling and wants to go again next week. Result! He’s also walking so much further now and we managed a long muddy stomp without the buggy and no bribery. 🙌🏻 And I even went and rounded off the day with a post-school trip into town to fix Lila’s glasses and kids tea at the M&S cafe {totally living our best life right there 😂}. So I’d say I definitely won at mothering today. #likeaboss

Iris and I love our solo days together! Today we saw @theladyandthebebe and went to Tots city and then the park! We finished up having a hot drink together. We’re loving a solo days together and this outfit from @rococlothing was the perfect outfit for today!

We’re home from Tahoe and recuperating. Lucy spiked a fever yesterday (not a snow baby) so we’ve been taking things slow today and waiting for @briarhandmade spring line that launches at 12noon! The bonnet Lucy is wearing is the “sweet pea” bonnet. PAULA15 will get you a discount! #briarspring2018

1:1 TIME ❤️ you just can’t beat it eh? Piglet went to nursery today and I had this one to myself. We chilled, she did some writing for me (so cute), I did her nails, we had lunch, hit the park, had a milkshake, went to Asda and then picked up her sister ❤️ she was amazing company until her baby sister got into the car 🤣 .

We can barely get through the door before Dexter is demanding a snack! According to his daily diary he has breakfast, lunch and dinner plus two snacks, but he always wants more when he gets home. We’ve been trying @naturespathuk Choco Chimps and Leaping Lemurs cereal which is vegan, GF and organic to boot! Got to love a bit of choco cereal, it was definitely my fave as a kid 🥣 What was your favourite growing up? #review #naturespath #glutenfree #GF #GFcereal #kidscereal #toddlerbreakfast #toddlersnack #envirokidz
