HELP! I'm a Mombie!

I've pretty much lost count how many nights I've been awake at stupid o clock because of my darling Rupert!

He's not been eating much, he's been ridiculously snotty so I just put it down to him having mini man flu and being extra clingy.

It's been ok for him though as he'll happily catch up on sleep throughout the day and look all angelic and make me feel bad for feeling crap and angry. 
I've not been able to nap really as I have too much to do around the house or if I am about to fall asleep I'll have to rush out on the school run. 

As you can imagine I've been dragging myself around like a zombie and not being able to concentrate on the little things of life let alone my blog!

I've been filling my body up with coffee, coffee some chocolate then even more coffee.
I have been on the verge of tears in the past few days I've been so tired.

It's shit but it's mummy life you just have to pull yourself together and get on with it, as you know it won't last forever!
If you can give birth you can do anything!!! 

Yesterday I was stroking Ru's hair to get him to nap so I could get on with my mountain of washing and felt some crustyness by his ear .... low and behold he has been suffering from an almighty ear infection and his ear drum had exploded, gunk and puss everywhere. 

No wonder he's not been sleeping or eating!
How did I miss that!!!
Mum Fail! 

A visit to the doctor and some antibiotic ear drops later and hopefully we're on the path to better sleep! 

Ru slept through with the help of our trusted friend calpol and his ear drops. Noah on the other hand decided he would scream out loud that needed me to sleep with him then when I thought I could crawl back into my bed Alex decided he needed mummy cuddles. 

With the twins mattress being so horrible and hard it's very hard to get to sleep. 
We really need to get them new ones! 
I finally got to bed about 3 this morning only to be woken up at 5 by Oscar! 

Oh I can't wait for them being lazy teenagers and making them get up super dooper early!

Coffee indulgence and a cinema trip!

On Wednesday I took the wildlings to the cinema for the very first time.

We went to see The Good Dinosaur. 

It was a great film. 
Funny, moving and sad at times. 
It had a very upsetting Lion King moment. 
The twins really enjoyed the whole cinema experience. We did miss about a quarter of the film due to Oscar needing a number two and not quite managing to go the first, second or third time we popped to the loos! 

Whilst watching the film I decided Disney based Spot on Ru. Every thing about Spot just reminded me off Ru.

Jenny was also round which meant we all had hair cuts. 
The wildlings and Ru all had a major chop as their hair was boarding on wild child gone wrong.
Jen also cut my hair into a bob (not much had to be done to do that) to get rid of some of the dead hair and try to encourage some more growth.

We also exchanged Christmas gifts and I was given some Beanies Coffee!!! 
I've been wanting to try them for a while so I was rather pleased with them and I also got a super cool mug that when next to Jenny's mug looks like we are calling each other!!!

Our Scout Elf arrived on the 1st and has been keeping a watchful eye on the boys, she even made them paper crowns!! 
We've named her Noelle and the boys all seem very taken with her.

Ru has had a bit of a sickness bug and was horrendously sick on Monday night all over his bedroom, I thought he was better but then this morning he woke at 4am and was sick again!

Having early morning parties with Ru for the last few days has left me feeling rather Zombie like, so to rectify this I've treated myself to a new Lush bubble wand to have once the kids are all in bed! 

I have a mountain of washing that needs doing but because of all the sick washing  I been doing its backed up, so if anyone has a washing fairy please send them my way! 

Noah has an inset day today and some of the school mums are going to a local indoor play barn and have invited us along!
Whoop 9 months later and I feel I've been excepted into the school mum gang! :) 

Christmas shopping is nearly finished, thanks to good old Amazon and a few trips to Maidstone with Serena 
just have some loose ends to tie up and then the wrapping can begin! 

I've also made sure I've kept topped up on lots of festive Costa Coffee Yummyness.

Mr Men Mishaps & Mayhem App •Review•

We were asked to review the new Mr Men app. I've loved Mr Men since I was little so I was more than happy to say yes! 

The twins have been showing more interest in the iPad lately and it was nice finding a game that they could understand and play without getting frustrated. 

There favourite game was Mr Tickle That Tickles.  

Each game you have to either tap, swipe, press and hold because of this I think playing Mr Men will help your child learn how to use the iPad with out them really noticing. 

The instructions are nice and simple.
It's aimed at children 5+ 
The twins are 3 and they got it and enjoyed playing, Noah showed them the ropes and they cottoned on pretty quickly.

It is rather addictive, I've found myself playing it once all the boys are in bed trying to beat all my previous scores. Something I shouldn't do as the game levels go up the more you progress. 
Silly mummy!

This app is sure to bring yourkiddie-winks hours of fun.
You can purchase the app from the App Store for £2.29

Stuck for stocking fillers?
Why not get some fabulous Mr Men merchandise?!? 

Mr Happy apron 
Mr Tickle magnetic book marks
Mr Bump egg cup!
