Art Attack Tuesday – Potted Plant #ArtAttackTuesday

Welcome everyone, it’s that time of the week again where me and my little girl share what wonderous creations we have made this week in our #ArtAttackTuesday feature.

Today I want to share with you the adorable gift I came home from nursery with for Mother’s Day

She apparently helped plant it all by herself and then decorated the outside (I am fairly sure there is a slight indent of another finger there and it’s not just two!!!).

What a clever girl and what a lovely gift (just need to keep it alive now!) I am not the best with plants admittedly but I will do my best with this one!.

What delights have your little ones made this week?

As always why not post your little ones creations on your blog then comment below and share a link to your page as well as tweeting me with the link and #ArtAttackTuesdays.

Look forward to seeing some budding Monet’s!


Happy Mother’s Day One and All

Thoughts on Mother's Day

I’d just like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy Mothering Sunday. I hope you are all being well looked after by your family and enjoying time together.

If you do have time spare on your hands today though have you ever actually stopped to question where the term Mother’s Day comes from and the history behind it? Strangely it’s not all about flowers and chocolates!? Oh Thornton’s and Interflora will be sad!!!

It’s actually a christian festival that stems from the Roman Hilaria festival was held in honour of the mother goddess Cybele Interested? Then grab your cup of tea and read more …. Hmmmm I am sure you all have much better things to be doing though!!!???

Why not share with me how you’ve been celebrating? xxx

Book Review: Why I Love My Mummy

Happy #FictionFriday one and all!

The book I have chosen to review this week is with Mother’s Day in mind and is called Why I Love My Mummy (Illustrated by Daniel Howarth)

This is a gorgeous book with adorable quotes as to why children love their mummies, which are perfectly accompanied by mother and baby animal illustrations.

The story culminates in the quote “everyone loves their mummy – especally…” and turn the page to a picture frame where a picture of mummy can be placed.

I bought my husband the “Why I Love My Daddy” book last Father’s Day and my daughter loved it, it’s a favourite bedtime read. So he returned the compliment and bought this for me at Christmas.

The illustrations are beautiful and whilst a simple and adorable read it can help teach your little ones about the animal kingdom. I ask my little girl what noises the animal makes and she loves joining in.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone!
