Five Things you Need to Know Before you Stay in a Hotel with Toddlers

Five Things you Need to Know Before you Stay in a Hotel with Toddlers

Earlier on this year, Hubs and I were invited to The Deep in Hull. We were so excited to take the kids on a day trip, so excited in fact that somewhere along the way we decided it would be a good idea to make a weekend out of it. It went something along the lines of ‘Hey let’s get a hotel and go to the beach too, the kids will love it’. Oh the naivety! OK, so it wasn’t all bad. The kids did love it and The Deep was amazing. The whole weekend was definitely a learning curve though, so much so that I won’t be staying in a hotel with toddlers again any time soon!

 

 

Here are five things you need to know, before you decide to stay in a hotel with toddlers;

 

It will only be novel for the first ten minutes –

We got in the car with smiles right across our faces. The weather was fine, we were going to seaside and we were going to eat fish and chips on the beach. I bought DVD players for the car, it was the easiest long car journey we’ve EVER had. Things were going good, we’d totally cracked this parenting thing. We had a really good day on the beach, the kids were so happy and completely tired themselves out. All we had to do now was head back to the hotel, grab some dinner and settle down for the night, simple!

My first mistake? Letting the kids have a 15 minute nap in the car on the way to the hotel. My second? Believing that the novelty of the hotel would surely keep them entertained for one whole evening. Well, after ten minutes we were well into the witching hour, the hotel stopped being fun and turned into a prison cell! The kids didn’t want to be cooped up in one room and whatever we did to try to settle them down failed miserably. Bedtime came and went, with no sign of any sleepers in the room.

Forget the idea that you’re going to get a good nights sleep –

When it got to one hour after their normal bedtime, we assumed that this wakefulness couldn’t go on for much longer. They must have been tired, they hadn’t stopped all day. Two hours over bedtime and they were still going strong. Three hours, you guessed it, we’d still not slept a wink. Finally, FIVE hours after their normal bedtime and they crashed! Who needs sleep anyway?

You need to be mindful of the snacks you give the kids –

We’d had fish and chips for lunch, so we decided that the best thing to get for dinner was a picnic. One that we could eat in the hotel room whilst watching the CBeebies Bedtime Hour. This one we really didn’t think through. Crisps, crackers, blackcurrant Fruit Shoots and cookies are not good hotel room food. We’d been there less than an hour and the floor looked like we’d been squatting there for weeks.

Don’t underestimate the power of electronic entertainment –

Our girls like a bit of TV, but they soon get bored. When they’re at home they can move on to the many toys we have dotted around or head out into the garden. When you’re in a hotel room, you don’t have the luxury of five cupboards jam-packed with toys. I realised that night that I’d made a vital mistake in not buying our girls iPads. Adamant that they’re too young for things like that, I’ve not given in to technology for them. I take it all back. iPads can be the best babysitters, I only wish I’d known it before!

Don’t spend a fortune on fancy toddler beds –

In my excitement on the run up to our trip, I decided it would make life much easier if we didn’t have to cart travel cots around. So I bought two ReadyBeds, which look fabulous for the littles and they are a great buy. However, unlike the travel cot they allow the kids to get out of bed whenever they like. It was a free for all, trying to get them into bed and to sleep was an impossible task. The moral of the story? Keep them sleeping in cots as long as you can!

Nutrigen Vitamixin Sprinkles Review

Nutrigen Vitamixin Sprinkles Review

*This post was written in collaboration with Nutrigen. 

 

As a parent, I find it so hard to get my girls to take vitamins. The ones we’ve tried in the past have always been syrup based, or have been in sweet form. I struggle with this as they are often laden with sugars, colourants and artificial sweeteners. My girls struggle with them as the sweets option are usually really hard to chew and they just can’t stomach the syrups. They make them instantly sick, which is no fun for anyone.

I’m pretty sure other parents will have experienced the same thing and for that reason, I’m so excited to share my experience with Nutrigen Vitamixin Sprinkles with you! As with all products that I am approached to review, I spent some time doing my research on these children’s vitamins. The quality that stood out most to me, was that they don’t alter the taste, smell or colour of the food you serve them with. I really wanted this to be true, after all a product like that could be the saviour of all parents!

 

 

The daily dose of vitamins and minerals –

According to the NHS, there are certain amounts of vitamins that should be given to children on a daily basis. This especially applies if your children don’t eat a wide range of foods and let’s face it, toddlers and food don’t always go hand in hand!

 

What do I love about Nutrigen Vitamixin Sprinkles?

The short answer is everything! First of all, one sachet contains the daily dosage as recommended by the World Health Organisation for children aged 6 – 48 months. So one sprinkle per day over one of your child’s meals, will mean you’re helping to give them the best start in life that you possibly can. One sachet also contains a lot of the daily recommended intake for children up to 12 years old.

The thing I love most about this product is that it doesn’t promise you results, without being able to deliver. As I touched on earlier, my girls can’t stomach the syrup based vitamins and the sweets are just too difficult for them to chew. I sprinkle one sachet over my girls’ yogurt at breakfast time and they genuinely don’t know that it’s there. We don’t have any tantrums when it’s time to take their vitamins, that’s something that makes our mornings run much smoother than before.

Nurtigen Vitamixin Sprinkles don’t contain sugars, artificial sweeteners or colourants. They don’t alter the way our kids food looks or tastes and they are so convenient for a busy household. I’m so impressed with this product from Nutrigen and it’s genuinely something that we will continue to use.

 

 

The Nutrigen Vitamixin Sprinkles Taste Test –

We decided to put the Nurtigen Vitamixin Sprinkles to the test. I gave my two harshest critics their breakfast with Vitamixin sprinkled on top, the results are just what we’d hoped for!

When I Finally Realised that Things Really do Get Easier

When I Finally Realised that Things Really do Get Easier

Every now and again I look back into the archives of this little blog of mine. Sometimes I Iike what I read. Sometimes I’m a little embarrassed about the thoughts and feelings that I’ve had previously and a lot of the time looking back helps me to recognise just how far we’ve come. When I started The Tale of Mummyhood, I was the mother of a nine month old and I was heavily pregnant with baby number two. I had no idea where I wanted my blog to go, all I knew was that stay at home parenthood was tough and I needed an escape.

In the early days I spent so much time writing about how hard I found being a mum. I felt like my world had been rocked and that it would never be the same again. I hated it for so long, the sleepless nights and the endless anxiety during the day was so difficult to deal with. For a time, I honestly wondered why people had children. Why would they do that to themselves? It’s a complete and utter shock to the system.

I remember being told ‘it will get easier‘ time and time again. In fact, I was told it that often that I got sick of hearing it. Things didn’t feel like they would ever get easier. How could they? Parenting is exhausting and relentless, it’s definitely not what I would ever have described as being ‘easy’.

 

 

Things do get easier –

 

At the point of writing this, my eldest daughter is approaching 3 and my youngest is approaching 2. I’ve spent a little time tidying up my blog and I came across those old posts from when the littlest was born. I remembered how raw those feelings were when I wrote them, but do you know something? That time feels like a lifetime away. Although I can remember it being tough, the pain of those feelings has long passed.

I’m not saying that my children don’t push my buttons on a daily basis. I’m also not under any illusions that there aren’t going to be tough times ahead. This year marks a huge change for us as our eldest starts nursery and that’s sure to bring with it more challenges for us as a family. Day-to-day, life isn’t the struggle it once was though. The world doesn’t implode if the girls don’t get fed every four hours on the dot. Our days aren’t dictated by strict nap times, that would have us chained to the house for the middle part of every day. Days out don’t have to be planned with military precision and if we’re not home for the 7 pm bedtime routine, I don’t feel like I’ve been cheated out of my own time.

I wish I could pin point when this happened, but it’s just been a gradual process. Slowly getting easier over the past year. Life has just taken its natural course and it seems that we are already reaping the rewards from all of the hard work we have put into our girls so far. I hate to admit it, but these days I even find my self telling new parents that it gets easier.

Time flies so fast. It’s true when they say ‘the days are long, but the years are short‘. I suppose what I’m trying to say is that, if you have small children and you’re finding things tough. Then don’t beat yourself up for feeling the way that you do. Just take each hour or even minute as it comes, because as much as I don’t want to dismiss how you’re feeling now, you do need to know that it will get easier.

Life Hacks – The Camping with Kids Edition

Life Hacks – The Camping with Kids Edition

*This post was written in collaboration with SimplyHike.co.uk.

 

Over the past couple of weeks, Hubs and I have set ourselves up with the ultimate camping kit. I decided on a whim that taking the kids camping would be a brilliant idea and still think it will be. In my rush to head off out into the wild though, I failed to fully consider just what camping with kids would entail. I’m a woman of routine and I do like my home comforts. In my haste to get our kit together, it didn’t occur to me that I would need all the tips I could get to make camping with kids as fun as possible!

 

Getting the right family tent –

After a little research, we decided that to make the whole experience as comfortable as possible then we would need to invest in the right tent. It would need to be big enough to fit in everything but the kitchen sink! It would also need to have a high waterproof rating and be strong enough to stand up to bad weather if we needed it too. With all of this in mind, we opted for the Coleman Mosedale 5 family tent. It has a huge living area, as well as two blackout bedrooms and we’re sure it’s the ideal home for our travels!

Coleman is a make that has been around for some time too. I’m always checking reviews on items before I buy them and this was no different. The reviews for the Mosedale 5 are really great, so many people said they’d made some amazing family memories in this tent and we want to be a part of that too. The best thing about this tent is that it’s so reasonably priced, perfect for families who need to get the whole camping set up without breaking the bank.

 

 

Getting the right equipment –

As well as the right tent, to make camping as family friendly as possible, I think it’s so important to get the right equipment. I did a little research through Simply Hike and I was gob smacked by how much high-tech camping equipment there is out there. We’ve invested in stoves, lanterns and so much more to make our tent a home from home. My absolute favourite piece of kit though is our cooler. It’s the ideal companion for any camping trip, perfect for keeping food and milk fresh all the time we’re away. We’ve even taken it on road trips, it’s ideal to keep drinks cool when you’re out on hot days!

 

 

Life hacks –

As much as having the right equipment makes for the perfect trip, there are many more hacks that you need to know if you’re going camping with kids. So to make your lives easier, as well as my own, I put it to my fellow bloggers to come up with the ultimate list of life hacks, the camping with kids edition!

Here’s what they had to say;

Sarah from Boo, Roo and Tigger Too: ‘Get shoe covers or old shower caps to pop over shoes as they come in and out of the tent to save getting mud/wet everywhere. As taking shoes on and off can be a pain, especially if you are the one who has to help each time’.

Nisbah from Five Adventurers: ‘Always set up the tent first at home before you go for the actual first camp! I have seen lots of families struggle with this. Always have loads of treats for camp fires.’

Janet from Falcondale Life: ‘We always buy a packet of glow sticks and use them as nightlights. We hang the big chunky ones inside the bedrooms. Outside we stick some garden solar lights in the ground so that there is no tripping over on the way to the loo in the dark.’

Louise from Pink Pear Bear: ‘Pack outfits rolled together (including pants and socks) so you can just grab an outfit for each child without having to rummage through the whole case. So much easier to just grab a roll and pass it to them to get themselves dressed knowing everything they need is there!’

Jennifer from My Mummy’s Pennies: ‘Take plenty of bin bags! They are super useful! Use them for muddy clothes or to put wellies on in the tent, even for sitting on wet grass.’

Claire from Wild Mama and Her Tribe: ‘Try a practice camp in the garden or locally to get used to the ‘its cold’ it’s dark’ ‘there’s a spider in my sleeping bag’ ‘it’s too lumpy’ ‘why are there no light switches’ – it’s a sanity saver.’

Fiona from A Mum Track Mind: ‘Camping with babies and toddlers can be hard work but what babies and toddlers are hard work full stop. They are also free-spirited, wild at heart and fascinated by the world around them, which are qualities that sadly we often lose as we get older. It’s best to switch your thinking from over-anxious parenting to a slightly more care-free style of parenting and let it go a bit. Rules, bedtimes and nagging can resume when you get home.’

 

A huge thankyou to all who made this post possible!

A recent birthday celebration saw our house was filled with the laughter of 8 giddy girls (and 2 giddy grown ups) as the partied to little mix, Taylor swift and Justin timber lake. They had an amazing time being pampered and having their hair put up in bows! I tried to watch how they did this but missed it every time 🙄 The difference this year was made by fab friends (one helped with the party, the other had our 2 year old), a sister in law (@cakedesignbycharl ) who makes the most amazing cakes and a party entertainer (@justforgirlzparties1 )that literally took over meaning I could watch my little girl and the massive smile that permanently adorned her face 💕💫 #girlsbirthdayparty #talkingmums #bowinhair #hairstylesforgirls

Days Out: Hornsea Beach and The Deep, Hull

Days Out: Hornsea Beach and The Deep, Hull

*We were gifted a family pass to The Deep, Hull for the purpose of this review. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. 

 

Ever since our girls stepped foot on a beach for the first time, they have loved being by the seaside! They could spend all day on the beach of we let them, it’s definitely one of their favourite things to do. That’s why, when we had a day trip planned to The Deep in Hull, we decided to make a weekend of it and head to Hornsea beach too. We managed to book ourselves into a little hotel nearby, packed up the car and headed off on our first weekend away as a family!

 

Hornsea Beach –

As far as beaches go, Hornsea does what it says on the tin. It’s a stoney beach, that also has plenty of sandy patches for the kids to dig holes and build sand castles. We went on a Sunday in late Spring, when the weather was pleasant and it wasn’t too busy. There was plenty of room for everyone, which is ideal when the kids want to run around and burn some energy off. The shops, cafe’s and toilets are really close to the beach too, which makes seaside life with littles much easier!

We had a really fun afternoon at Hornsea, it’s the ideal spot for a day trip and there’s plenty of free parking nearby. This coast doesn’t have the clearest water I’ve ever seen, but other than that you’re sure to have a blast here. We’ll definitely be back!

 

 

 

The Deep, Hull –

 

The Deep has been on our must visit list ever since we had children. Hubs and I went many years ago and absolutely loved it, so we knew when the girls were old enough they would too. Our hotel was just a stones throw away from the Deep, so we got there when it opened to make the most of our day. All of the staff were really friendly on arrival, they even gave our girls their own activity book and cuddly penguin as a momento of our visit!

 

 

As soon as our girls entered the exhibition, they were awestruck! There’s so much for them to do and see, even our littlest who was two at the time loved getting involved. When we got to the first large tank both girls were amazed by the all of the sea life. There are some beautifully fascinating species to see and to learn about, we spent a lot of time watching the fish in this huge tank!

 

 

The Deep has an area with smaller tanks too, where a member of staff gives a talk on the sea life in them. It’s also possible for the kids to touch the animals, which our eldest couldn’t wait to do. As soon as she heard the lady giving her talk, she ran over to listen and was the first to touch a sea urchin when she was asked!  This added a great element to our experience at The Deep and was a lovely learning opportunity for our girls. The penguins at The Deep are such funny characters and were a real highlight for our girls too. They have specific feeding times, so if you want to see the them in their full glory you can find out when they are fed HERE!

 

 

Overall, we had the best weekend at Hornsea beach and at The Deep, Hull. It was one of the best weekends we’ve enjoyed since becoming a family of four and it’s something we’ll definitely do again in the future. Make sure you have plenty of time to explore The Deep though, you’re going to need it!

 

 

The Deep, the best bits –

 

  • The Cool Seas exhibition – this area was great for the kids, it’s so much like a sensory room and they were mesmerised by it!
  • Touch pool sessions – getting up close and personal with the sea life.
  • The tank lift and the tunnel!
  • The Dive Show – at 2pm everyday.
  • Penguin feeding.
  • Soft play at the end of the exhibition – our girls loved this!
  • The cafe – a vast menu and very reasonably priced.

Our little Easter bunny. He's loved rabbits since he was a baby and now, at almost 7, his love remains. I thought as he got older he may move on to something else but no. He wants to be a vet and save all the animals (especially bunnies). I suspect this may change as he gets older so for now I'll enjoy having such a gentle kind hearted little man 💙 . . #globalblogging #blogstravaganza #dailyparenting #holdthemoments #lifewithkids #lovelookslikethis #motherhoodlookslikethis #parentingjourney #thisismotherhood #pbloggers #mummyblogger #mbloggers #childhoodunplugged #myfamilyadventures #thefamilynarrative #reallifeofmums #showthemtheworld #unitedinmotherhood #momlife #thingsiwanttoremember #oureverydaymoments #proudmamamoment #mummyshot #capturingchildhood #simplychildren #littlefierceones #pbloggersuk

Our Camping Adventures and Why we Love #VanLife!

Our Camping Adventures and Why we Love #VanLife!

*This post was written in collaboration with Sherwood Campers. 

 

This year, Hubs and I have decided to take our girls camping. As a well seasoned camper myself, I know it’s something our girls will absolutely love. I have so many good memories from the camping trips I’ve had over the years. We’ve stayed in everything from standard tents to trailer tents and from caravans to folding campers. You name it, we’ve had an adventure in it!

 

Matching campers!

Getting outdoors –

I’ve always loved spending time outdoors and now that our girls are getting a little older, they adore heading out to explore too. That’s why we’ve decided to make a real effort to get our girls out into the fresh air as much as possible! There are so many places that we want to visit in the UK, I’ve never visited Scotland so I think that will be first on our list. To tour such a vast area though, I think we’ll need to enlist the help of my parent’s VW camper! It has everything we need on board, to make the journey as fun and as comfortable as possible.

My parents have been VW lovers for quite some time, this isn’t the first camper they’ve had to go on holiday in. Over the years they’ve had a few different models, all of them offering a little something different to the whole camping experience. At one time they even looked into a VW camper specialist, to convert their VW into a unique living space. In fact, they love them that much, they bought the girls a miniature pink version too!

 

Peeking through the roof!

 

Why we love #VanLife  –

The beauty of holidaying in a camper van, is that your accommodation is on wheels. You can jump in and head to where ever takes your fancy, with all of your home comforts by your side. Inside is your very own space, to live and to make some amazing memories with your family. Both of our girls love to spend time in their grandparent’s camper, that’s why we knew they would love to go on holiday in it too!

Here are a few benefits of holidaying in a VW camper;

  • The roof pops up to expand your living space, providing you with a large bed. There’s also a safety net attached for the little ones!
  • They have so much storage, you’re sure to fit in everything you need to take with you.
  • Some even have toilets and cookers inside, meaning you can stay in the most remote areas and not have to worry about facilities.
  •  They have a table and chairs neatly hidden away. So you’ll always be able to eat in comfort on holiday, inside or outside of the camper.
  • You can attach canopy’s and awnings to the side of your camper, making your living space bigger when you’ve pitched up for the night.
  • They are a dream to drive, making your cruise around the country a total pleasure!

 

In the roof space!

HomeDNA at Home Genetic Testing Review – Healthy Weight

HomeDNA at Home Genetic Testing Review – Healthy Weight

*This post was written in collaboration with HomeDNA. 

 

A little while ago I was contacted by HomeDNA to try out their at home genetic testing kits. I’ve always been intrigued by these services and so I jumped at the chance to take the Healthy Weight test. Like many other women before me, I’ve always been conscious of my appearance and have spent many hours in the gym, trying to shed those ‘extra’ pounds. I was curious to find out how my body works and what I can do to aid staying at a healthy weight.

 

What did I have to do?

 

First of all, HomeDNA send out a test kit to complete at home and send back to them. The test kit comes with four swabs that you use to collect cells from the inside of both cheeks. It’s so easy to complete the swabs and all you have to do is seal them in the envelope provided, fill in all of your details and send them over to the lab for testing. This process is super simple, then all you have to do is sit back and wait for your results to arrive in your inbox!

Once your test has been analysed, you receive a report with detailed explanations into each area of your genetic makeup, in reference to maintaining a healthy weight. The report makes is really easy to understand the ins and outs of what is going on with your body and it also gives you pointers on what you can do to enhance your lifestyle, helping you to achieve a healthy weight!

 

An insight into my results –

 

The healthy weight test analyses four body traits;

  1. Weight loss ability.
  2. Food.
  3. Nutrients.
  4. Response to exercise.

As someone who has spent a hell of a lot of their adult life in the gym, the response to exercise sections was something I couldn’t wait to find out about. The test gives you an idea of the kinds of exercise that your body responds to, so that you can create the perfect exercise plan for you. I’ve also tried many diets over the years, so I thought it would be good to find out what foods are good for me personally, when it comes to maintaining a healthy weight.

When my results came back, I was pleased to read that my weight loss ability is ‘normal’, that means that there are no more excuses! So if I feel like I’m carrying a little extra weight, it’s because I need to watch the kinds of food that I’m eating. Not because my body isn’t functioning as it should. My weight fluctuates naturally and since I’ve had children I’ve found weight loss harder to achieve. From taking this test I’ve realised that my body hasn’t changed irreparably and I can’t blame having children for an increase in weight, it’s just about balancing things out to maintain my healthy weight.

I also learned from taking this test that my fat loss response to cardio is ‘low’. Now, most of my exercise regime is made up of different types of cardio. I swap and change my plan between the exercise bike, the treadmill and the cross trainer. These days I do this around 4 days out of 7. Actually according to my results, in order to notice a difference from cardio training I should be exercising 5 – 7 days a week at a moderate to high intensity and for a minimum of 300 minutes per week. This was a real eye-opener for me as I’ve often commented on not seeing results from exercise and it seems there may be a reason for that.

 

The verdict –

 

These are just a few of the results from my test, the ones that really jumped out at me and what I was most curious to find out about. The report itself is pages and pages long, this test really doesn’t leave any stone un-turned. I still find myself going back to my results, this helps me to make the appropriate changes to my lifestyle. Maintaining a healthy weight is something that always has and always will be important to me. Even more so now that I have two girls to keep fit and healthy for!

I’m so pleased I took the healthy weight test from HomeDNA and I’m even more impressed with how in-depth and informative my results are. There are other tests that HomeDNA do too, including ancestry tests. I’m pretty sure they’ve not seen the back of me!
