A Day in a Parenting Blogger’s Life – Mimi Rose & Me

Good morning to you all. Another Friday, another week over. I hope  you all had a good one. My one was half good, half stressful in work. Mainly because we were two people short all week. Next week is going to be easier. Have you got any nice plans at the weekend? We are planning to bake and go to the pottery.

Today on the blog series “A day in a parenting blogger’s life” is Kelly-Anne who blogs at Mimi Rose & Me.

My NameTags Review + Giveaway

When your children start to attend nursery, play school, creche or school, it can be hard to keep their bits and pieces together. Some children may have the same bag, others may have the same coat. The minders are trying their best to keep each children’s stuff together but sometimes you might need to label it. I had a situation where Chloe had the same pair of shoes as two other girls. Now luckily she grew out of them and I bought a complete different pair then but it can happen again.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2017

This weekend, Sunday in fact, is the day where us mums celebrate. Mother’s Day is only five days away. I know, I know, some of you might say “it’s all a money making game” and yes you are right. But you also have to see it another way. Us mums are “working” 24/7, providing for the family, looking after the little ones, cleaning, cooking, etc. This day is dedicated to be pampered.

A Birthday with Bakerdays’ Letterbox Cake

It has been almost two weeks since it was hubby’s birthday. By chance we both took the day off. It wasn’t for the fact that it was his birthday. It was mainly because we had a few tasks to do that would be better to get done while the kids are in creche.

That day we actually got to spend some time together and we went for lunch. It was nice to get out as a couple for once. Hubby doesn’t want any presents when it comes to his birthday. Neither does he like to bring any attention to his birthday.  I still wanted to give him a little surprise on his special day.

Living Arrows 12/52 St Patrick’s Day Weekend

What a fun filled weekend we had. On top of that we got an extra day. On Friday it was St. Patrick’s Day which is a public holiday in Ireland. We had lots of plans made. Matthew’s godfather was coming over with his son and his wife. His son is nearly fourteen years of age so Matthew had lots of fun playing with him.

Unfortunately the weather was not on our side and it was drizzling rain most of the weekend but that still didn’t stop us from keeping to our plan. On Friday Matthew’s godfather went to the parade in Dublin City while we sat at home and watched it on the TV. Cosy and not getting wet. I am glad we didn’t go because he said it wasn’t that good and it was only an hour long. Normally the parade starts at midday but this time it didn’t start until 12.40pm for some reason.
