Beardy fun with The Twits #RoaldDahlDay

Today is Roald Dahl Day!!!!

September is Roald Dahl's birth month, and each year people celebrate with a wonderful array of events centred around his birthday on 13th September.

This year it is focused on all things Twits, in particular the beard of Mr Twit! Booksellers are turning their shops into “beard boutiques”!!

We have joined in the fun by creating our very own Mr Twit beard .... We were going to make one but then Noah had the fantastic idea of using Jon as our Bearded Twit ..... He already has the Beard it just needed a few tweaks

Introducing our very own Mr Twit
He wasn't too impressed with Noah squashing Rice Krispies into his beloved beard, but he soon got into the spirit!

Noah used Rice Krispies, pasta shapes, scratch and sniff Twit stickers which came with the one of the books we were sent which smell horrid! Some yarn and some green shredded paper. 

**** If you peered deep into the moustachy bristles sticking out over his upper lip, you would probably see much larger objects that had escaped the wipe of his hand, things that have been for months and months, like a piece of maggoty green cheese or a mouldy old cornflake or even the slimy tail of a tinned sardine. ****

The Twits is one of our all time favourites. It's sure to have us in fits of giggles every time we read it. 

Noah has always said Mr Twits beard is a bit like Jon's, so that's where the inspiration to transform Jon beard came from. 

Noah's favourite chapter is Mrs Twit gets a stretching
He finds the tricks that the Twits play on each other highly amusing. 

The Twits is a great classic book and I can't wait to read it to the twins once they are old enough. They don't have a great attention span at the moment!
If you haven't read it, go and read it now!!!! 

Roald Dahl (1916–1990) was one of the world’s most imaginative, successful and loved storytellers. Since his death, his work has not only endured but is still increasing in popularity. His stories are currently available in 59 languages. UK sales alone are over 50 million books and rising, with global sales estimated to be more than 200 million.

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…
