Real Mums All Bran 5 Day Challenge

Dear Mummy,

We know you can be a little bit nervous sometimes, a little bit anxious. We know you worry about how you look, especially since having us. Well, we want to tell you that we think you’re amazing. We think you’re the best mummy ever. And you know, why? Because you have the best tummy ever.

That tummy that makes you never want to wear a bikini ever again is brilliant. Why? Because it stretched and grew to make room for us as we grew. That tummy was a big soft cushion for us, protecting us, as we grew. That tummy helped us to get all the nutrients that we needed to help us grow. That tummy is the best.

That tummy had to have two unexpected surgeries and was cut and sewn and now scarred. Even when we were here and in your arms, that tummy was working really hard to get back to normal size. That tummy was still needed to help give us all of the nutrients that we needed and you were so careful with what you put in that tummy to make sure that it was ok for us.

That tummy has been through a lot and you shouldn’t be ashamed of it. If you want to wear a bikini then you should wear a bikini. Don’t be ashamed of it. It housed the two of us and it shows you are a mother. A tiger that earned her stripes.

Lots of love,

Max (2 1/2 years) & Chloe (4 months)

Dry Like Me | Giveaway

Last week you may have seen my review of Dry Like Me potty training pads. I think they are great, much better than pull-ups and have worked really well for our toddler. So I’m thrilled to be able to offer one of you a Dry Like Me starter set, including 4 packs of the potty training pads and a reward chart with stickers, to get you on your way to potty training and hopefully get you involved in #pottytraininglive.

MenKind.co.uk | Product Review

20140630_152924

This has go to be one of the most fun products I have been sent to review. Who doesn’t want a loch ness monster in their kitchen, that serves a function too? (Don’t answer that). Jokes aside, it is a really cool item and would make a great gift. Yes, it’s a little bit quirky but I think those kinds of things make the best gifts; things that you wouldn’t just go and buy  for yourself. The MenKind website has quite a lot of cool and unique gifts for men, obviously including this, but other things for the home and garden, little gadgets and personalised items.

This Loch Ness monster does exactly what it says on the tin – it has an oil pourer (the head), a pepper shaker (the hump), and a salt shaker (the tail). It is a really handy size to have in the kitchen, not obtrusive at all and looks good on the table when having guests over. It holds a good amount so you’re not constantly having to refill it so pretty perfect for what it is.

The set is made from ceramic so it’s nice and sturdy, with a slight shine to it and the stoppers are made of silicone which make it really easy to refill each section. The set costs £12.99 which I don’t think is too bad for a gift like this. The delivery was really quick too so I would recommend MenKind if you wanted to buy this or any other of their products. I often get stuck on what to get for the men in my life (homemade gifts usually don’t go down too well), so I will definitely be bookmarking MenKind.

One of my favourite posts from last week was from To Become Mum - like to hear how people are getting on with being healthy and always like to hear a recommended juice recipe.

So, this week, link up any of your heath or fitness themed posts, new or old, so we can all be thinking healthy thoughts ready for the weekend. Remember to comment on at least one other post and if you tweet me, I will always retweet and share.
