A trip to the Dentist with Monkey Wellbeing •Review•

A trip to the dentist can be very stressful, especially for children who have never been.

I have been pretty pants and have never taken the twins to the dentist ..... Until yesterday! 

I had been preparing the boys with Monkey, and explaining what the dentist would do and what the room would look like. 

The Monkey Wellbeing  kit comes with reward stickers, a good cleaning chart, a magazine which you can read with your children to help them understand what is going to happen!

It also comes with a funky toothbrush, a timer and my childhood nightmare discolouring tablets - which show you where you haven't been cleaning! 
My mother used to make me and my brother do this monthly and we hated it! As it did its trick and showed us we had been lazy and our teeth were dirty! 

I made Noah use the tablets as sometimes he just "forgets" to brush his teeth even after I've told him too. 
He was pretty amazed at the colour his teeth went and then spent about 5 minutes returning them to being white!

The boys were very excited about a trip to the dentist with Monkey!
They both held his hands and pretty much skipped into the dentist waiting room. 

It was all fun and games until we were called in! 
The twins freaked out!
Oscar wouldn't even go in the room and Alex went in but screamed until he was let back out. 
Rupert and Noah were great and had a check up with no fuss!

I didn't think the dentist wasn't very child aware, she just expected them to sit there and do as she wanted.
Even when it came to Rupert I was the one having to open his mouth up.

With more help from with Monkey and more trips to the dentist I think the twins will eventually be fine with dentist trips! 

Monkey can also help prepare your little one for starting school!!

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!

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…
