How to Get Paint Out of Kids Clothes


Paint on my daughter's clothes. Panic!!!

That used to be me.

When my daughter got painty ... which she did, often ... I'd chuck her clothes in the machine trusting in the power of my washing powder.

Only for them to come out with paint splodges faded but still clearly visible. Sob :-(

And it would always be her nicest clothes.

Which had somehow escaped her apron and got covered, and which I would then ruin.

But no more!

Easy No Prep Fall Crafts


How gorgeous is autumn?

The beautiful colours are almost enough to stop me grieving the passing of another summer.

And are crying out for some lovely crafting.

The only problem being I feel too over loaded right now to even think about prepping crafts.

An Easy Way to Organise Toys


Toys toys everywhere!

Shoved into overflowing toy boxes.

Pieces scattered around the house.

So nothing can be found easily and super cool games go neglected.

And at the end of the day, toys that have been yanked out are left in huge heaps because it's so hard to put them away.

Sound familiar?

Avoiding After School Meltdowns


How exhausting is school, heh?

My 4 year old just started "proper" school and by pick up I can actually see her brain whirring, overloaded with each day's newness.

Getting home and to bedtime feels like a high wire act ... one teensy step wrong and we descend into meltdown or downright horridness.

DIY Halloween Costumes For Babies


It's spooky how quickly Halloween is coming around again - see what I did there?!

But for some, this will be their first Halloween.
