The Scrummy Mummy

Because every mummy is scrummy

Dream Baby Grooming Kit

Every new parent is nervous when it comes to cutting those tiny little nails or brushing that delicate baby hair.

 Dreambaby have developed a lovely little grooming kit for the precious newborns out there (well their nervous parents really!). Included in the kit is a super pair of nail clippers which are easy to hold thanks to the plastic handles (no more slipping in those sweaty nervous fingers) and they are super sharp which means nail cutting is quick and simple.

 The kit also contains nail files, a comb, scissors a brush and a toothbrush – everything you need to take care of your little one,  it all comes in a neat little plastic case for the reasonable price of £9.99.

We loved the kit, the nail clippers were the best thing that we used, really easy to use on a wiggly baby.

Miss C

Miss C hasn’t been too well this week. While poorly at home she came up to me very proud of what she had done on the iPad.

Well done Miss C.

Bump Watch

With the girls I didn’t have much of a bump, this week I have grown a bump meaning I had to go out and buy new trousers!

Here is my first bump pic. 

What do you think? Is it a pink or blue bump?

Miss E

Miss E makes me smile. Thursdays are our days where we have the day together just me and her, I catch up with my house work while Miss E chats away to me or her imaginary friend ‘George”!

I asked her a question today while she was rabbiting away to George and I’m not too sure that she was happy that I interrupted her!

It’s also amazing how much fun a new magazine and a pair of my old specs (without the lenses) can be!

Miss E really does make me smile :)

Pink Lining Bramley Tote Review by Sara

All the mummies I know are on the look out for a stylish yet practical changing bag. After having my second I was looking for something a little bigger than the average bag to keep the multitude of essentials that I now needed to take out with me! Pink lining came to the rescue with their super stylish Bramley Tote. The minute it arrived it made me feel special with the beautiful pink packaging and the stunning prints. 

Pink lining say: Sling it over your shoulder to look like a lady who lunches, rather than a mummy who ends up wearing baby’s lunch!!! It is a bucket shape bag with a zip across the top so it has plenty of room for all your baby essentials. The bottle pouch and changing mat can be removed when you no longer need them or for when you have an outing to the pool or beach. This bag has a large zip pocket across the front for all mummy things. The bag also comes with two removable hook and stroll clip shoulder straps for easy fit over any pram/buggy handle bars. Internal Features: 1x removable insulated bottle holder, 2x nappy pockets, pen holder, key fob, mirror, phone pocket, small zip pocket, padded changing mat and wet zip bag.

I really like the versatility of the bag and would recommend it as a top present for all those wanna be stylish mummies! A great quality bag for a reasonable price.

Happy Birthday Gizmodad

Yesterday was Gizmodad’s birthday, we had a family day of bowling and then went for a meal.

The girls love bowling and Miss C even bowled without the ramp this time and managed to get 2 spares, Miss E even got a strike and beat nanny!

Another fun afternoon had by all, thank you nanny and grandad.

A Gruffalo Hunt

This morning we went to North Thorndon Woods to go on a Gruffalo hunt. 

It costs 50p for a map trail and takes as long as you make it. Today was very muddy so Miss C enjoyed jumping in the muddy puddles and squelching in the mud. Miss E enjoyed walking in the leaves but didn’t like the mud! The boys enjoyed jumping in the puddles.

A great day had by all.

An afternoon watching Charlie and Lola

This year I have set myself a challenge of doing lots of family fun for free or next to nothing. 

We are Merlin Annual pass holders (which I think are worth their weight in gold) and also we are annual members of Colchester Zoo. 

So to start the year off to a good start today we went to see the Charlie and Lola stage show at Glow in Bluewater. I managed to find free tickets from Show Film First through a comping site I belong to.

So off we trundled to Bluewater and we had a fab time. Miss E was transfixed for the full 1hr it was on. My favourite part was when Lola was in the bath tub with the whales and bubbles.
