Potty training is not fun. I have been mostly incredibly blessed, because Charly’s nursery school started the process and my mom manages most of the rest. But there have been stages where we all sat in hysterical tears as well. Why did nobody tell me that surviving potty training is one of the greatest challenges moms face!!
All the giveaways all the time! Our Bunchems and Watercolour Heart giveaways have been closed and I am announcing the first of our Christmas 2017 winners right now!! There are more to enter, so just pop over here and DO IT!!
Bunchems of fun… hahahaha… I can’t stop giggling! Probably because I am overtired and should be asleep, but also because I love being punny… Hahahaha. Ok, enough, I promise! It is funny and adorable, BUT it is also true! Bunchems is the most awesome And, if you are patient and read allll the way to the end, you stand a chance to win a Bunchems Mega Pack valued at R500 for your small to middle sized human for Christmas! **Winner announced**.
Whose little one is going to be lighting up this Christmas when they see their gorgeous new Alilo Honey Bunny with his light up ears? One of you! I am so excited to give somebody this amazing gift I can’t even tell you!! Charly and Lilo had great fun choosing our winner today. So… Are you our Alilo Honey Bunny winner?!
Hello again lovelies! It is almost time for me to come back to you properly (and just in time for me to start preparing you for Christmas!!). This week marks the last week of my #CarseatFullstop campaign. I have a million things to do and a million more plans for the future, but I am going to take a proper breather (like a day or two of nothing but Charly) in the school holidays. And I have so much to say and share and tell you about! It has been an insane, but rewarding few months! But enough about that… It is time for what you have all been waiting for!!! Are you my Volvo Britax winner?? [Read more…]
Hello everybody!! Sorry for the delay in winner announcement. As you can see below, the winner draw isn’t always the easiest of things to manage But with some running around like a crazy person and some scene changes, we did get a winning number and we have a winner for our beautiful Malaville Malina!
I decided to start the weekend right, by doing ANOTHER giveaway! Many of you will have seen the gorgeous Malaville Dolls that Charly received from Toy Kingdom a few weeks ago. We loved them so much I asked them veeeeeery nicely if I could have one to give away to one of my amazing readers… And they said yes! Yay Toy Kingdom! COMPETITION CLOSED – Winner announced here!
Everybody knows by now that I have been invisible to you guys the past few months because of my car seat campaign #CarseatFullstop. You also know I turned Charly back rearwards-facing and I promised I would tell you all about it and review the Volvo Britax car seat. So I thought, while I was doing that, I’d make up for my absence by giving one of you your very own Volvo car seat! Seems only fair 😉 Our winner was announced here. For enquiries on the Volvo seats, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This Yookidoo giveaway has been one of my very favourites! I have loved the excitement and enthusiasm you have all shown for the brand and the toys themselves I love it when something I love is loved as much by you all!! It makes my heart happy. And it makes my heart extra happy that I get to make one of you a Yookidoo winner! [Read more…]
I have this overwhelming urge to dress all the kids I know in these little chef outfits from 3rd Kid Creations. I suspect I have found Charly’s next birthday party theme (yes, I realise we just had her birthday party and that the next is almost a whole year away). She LOVES cooking and being in the kitchen and dad teaches her how to do everything herself. I nearly fainted when I walked into the kitchen and she was peeling a potato – DANGER DANGER!!!! But daddy was right there and he watches her like a hawk… so I just stay out of the kitchen to calm my nerves. I hope our 3rd Kid Creations winner loves cooking just as much! [Read more…]
One of my favourite things about having this blog and Tums 2 Tots, is the amazing talent I come across while doing it. I have a thing about handmade items, as many of you will know; and this amazing small business owner that found me through Tums 2 Tots uses her talent to hand make the MOST adorable goods for kids! Meet Farayi Chikwete of 3rd Kid Creations!
More holidays are on the way and you know what that means in my household? More personalised special order gifts for Charly and the other littles I am blessed to be surrounded with. So you can JUST imagine my reaction when one of my all time favourite brands Rainbow Magic got in touch and wanted to send me something special for Charly for Easter. And then the follow up happy dance when the awesome Leigh offered to give one of YOU something special too! SO here we go – your chance to win Easter magic with Rainbow Magic! [Read more…]
