Top five favourite books at the moment

We do love a good book before bed in this house. 

As part of our daily routine we make sure we read the twins a story once they are in bed. We then let Noah have his time to read to us and then be able to have story of his choice for his bedtime story. 
We don't yet read to Ru on his own as he normally is asleep before the boys bedtime. 

Currently we have been reading ....

~ Marmaduke the very different dragon - Rachel valentine 

~ Room on the Broom - Julia Donaldson 

~ each peach pear plum - Janet and Allan Ahlberg

~ we're going on a bear hunt - Michael Rosen 

~ Night monkey, Day monkey - Julia Donaldson 

Noah picked out his top five books and this was the result of over ten minutes umming and ahhhhing

~ Superworm - Julia Donaldson 

~ The Gruffalo - Julia Donaldson 

~Captain underpants and the big, bad battle of the bionic booger boy. Part 1: the night of the nasty nostril nuggets - Dav Pilkey

~ The Troll - Julia Donaldson 

~ Fantastic Mr Fox - Roald Dahl 

I am a great lover of all Julia Donaldson and I'm working my way to having all her fantastic books in the boys book collections. 

What are you currently reading to your little ones?

I'm pretty excited that I've been invited along to take part in the semi finals over in Orpington this coming Friday.

Review || Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture

So its my cousins wedding this weekend and I'm having to make my legs suitable for public viewing! Usually my legs are hidden and the only leg skin that see the light of day are the bits that peak out behind the holes in my jeans.

I don't tend to get my legs out but when I do, I do like them to look good!
I'm pretty lazy when it comes to shaving my legs, and I will let them grow rather wildly if I have no reason to show them off! Obviously something Jon loves hates with a passion!
I was very kindly sent Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture , to try! The fact its an all in one really appealed to me, because.... I am..... a lazy shaver!

Intuition razors are the first 3-in-1 razors to lather, shave and moisturise in one easy step, giving your skin that naturally healthy glow.

Potty Training Academy // Sticker Chart.

Ru has taken to potty training like a pro! He's had hardly any accidents and is no longer using nappies during the day.

I started him off in Bambino Mio training pants but after a day of a couple accidents he started taking himself to the toilet without any prompt from me.

I introduced him to his Potty Training Academy sticker chart on day one and he was very keen to fill it up, so even when he didn't need the loo, he would try and squeeze something out just to get a sticker.

We used both a toddler loo seat and the carry me potty, but he prefers to do his wee's just like his brothers...standing up. He sings putting out the fiiiire when he's weeing (god knows where he got that from! lol.) 

The first real test was sending him to nursery and seeing if he returned with a bag full of wet pants. I made sure the washing machine was free for his return but when he came home wearing the same outfit that he went in in was such a win.

The sticker chart was a great help with gett…
