Back To School and Back To Sleep with Silentnight.

I can't believe that we are almost at the end of the summer holidays! In just a few sleeps we will be settling into bed and waking up the next morning to a brand new school year...

With just one 'summer' weekend left in sight, Monday, Bank Holiday or not,  will see us get back to routine, back to a bedtime routine in particular as we are a lot more relaxed about bedtime's during the holidays. So with the help of Silentnight and Dr Nerina Ramlakhan here are some top tips for getting back to sleep now we are (almost) back to school....

#ToddlerApprovedTuesday #44

Can you believe the end of summer is in sight...in just 2 Tuesdays Ellie will be back at school, 3 Tuesdays and Jenson will be in school full time and 4 Tuesdays Evie will be starting preschool...ohh the sobs...So although I still call them toddlers I should probably stop, I mean 3 and 4 is no longer toddler age is it really! My little Elsie though? Well she is still under 2 so is most definitely STILL a toddler, so I can at least say I have a toddler for at least another year!

Anyway enough of my ramblings you want to know who my showcases from last week are! Well we loved looking at them all together and our faves came from Feeding Finn and The Free Range Family. (Both foodie posts...can you tell I was hungry when I read them all!!)

Feeding Fin shared this amazing looking Lentil Lasagna...

Now On With The Show...

We would absolutely love it if you would join us, linking will open every Tuesday through to Thursdays and give us a good few days to see what your little ones have approved! We will share your posts on Twitter (make sure you follow me (@3princess_1dude and Leandra @larabeeuk) and every week we will each pick our fave two for a #ToddlerApprovedTuesday Showcase!


1. Link as many posts as you like (well with in reason!) BUT  please remember to copy and paste the#ToddlerApprovedTuesday badge on each post you would like to link up. No badge, no comment, no share, and your posts will be deleted.

2. Pop by and comment on two or three other posts, more would be great if you can!

3. OPTIONAL: Share your post and the linky party (using the hashtag #ToddlerApprovedTuesday) on your social media, Leandra and I will retweet all your posts via Twitter (make sure you mention us in your tweets @3princess_1dude/@larabeeuk).  Even if you don't have a blog, please do join in by using the hashtag for your toddler approved tweets & Instagram posts, they will still be counted for the showcase!

Activity Time. DIY Toilet Roll a Tube Farmyard Animals

Our farmyard is one of the monsters fave toys so as I browsed Pinterest one day when I came across the Cardboard Tube Farm Animals over at Craft's by Amanda I knew that one day I would make them...that one day came a few weeks ago...

Do You Remember #3

To My Beautiful Ellie, You often say I must hate you, you often say ''you never do nice things with me'', you forget that for 7 years it was just you...you didn't have to share memories, it was just you and I. Making memories together, lots of ordinary moments that I hope one day you will look back at with fondness.  I thought I would record some of the moments here in a 'Do You Remember' feature, maybe you can read them when you think the whole world hates you...

The Love/Hate Challenge

Thanks to the lovely Mudpie Fridays for the tag in the Love/Hate challenge...

Things I Hate...

1. Tantrums 'nuff said!

2. Woman who judge other woman

3. Irresponsible drivers.

4. The lack of husband and wife time me and the hubs get. Its hard to find someone to look after 4 kids!

5. People who don't use their manners! This is a big one, it can ruin a day for me. It takes 2 seconds to say thanks.

6. People who don't appreciate the things you do for them.

7. Staying indoors.

8. Periods! Bleurgh!

9. Parenting debates. Is you child clean? Do they sleep? Are they nurtured? Are they fed? Are they loved? YES? Then I don't care how you parent!  

10....I'm sure there are plenty, maybe its my good mood but I cant think of another...look out for an update!

Things I Love...

1. My monsters

2. The hubster

3. My family

4. Coffee!!!

5. Pasta!

6. Being a stay at home mummy.

7. Exploring new places.

8. Camping

9. Cooking. I love getting in the kitchen and cooking something from scratch.

10. Taking photos
