I made these last night and they were delicious! I only wish that I had made more to freeze, we ate them all for dinner! These homemade chicken nuggets were so easy, and only have 3 ingredients (not counting salt and pepper, which I happened to forget anyway): ground chicken, panko bread crumbs, and olive oil! The whole process of making them was quick and painless, and I knew the quality of the meat and breading was much healthier than any chicken nuggets that can be bought in…Continue

Dads are scrutinised so much more for their parenting efforts because it’s sometimes a rarity to see a father who is fully invested in his child’s life – and that’s just me being honest. A lot has changed over the years but not much. That’s why there’s still uproar when we see a father pushing a pushchair or taking his child to the park as opposed to mum doing it, because seeing mum doing it is a normal thing. Needless to say there are plenty great fathers out there who are fully committed…Continue

I’m sure we’ve all heard the saying ‘A child will follow by your example not by your advice’....... well, something along those lines anyway. Even if you haven’t heard it, it’s a statement that most of us agree to be true yet so easily forget, and though there is power in the tongue, nothing’s more influencing to a child than what they see you do. For example, if you’re telling a child they must eat up all their veggies because it’s good for them and you’re sat their eating cupcakes and…Continue

Dear well-meaning, loving, kind people who offer my daughter sweets,
I would love to give my daughter cake just as much as you would. I would love to give her cheese cake on my birthday. I would love to give her more than one tiny bite of one little Swedish fish for Valentine’s Day. I want to say yes to her, and I want to say yes to you when you offer to give her a bite…Continue

Every once in awhile something happens with us, and I’m torn about writing it. As a blogger, I don’t want my blog to necessarily come off as doom and gloom, but these things do come up. So bear with me as I get this off my chest. Perhaps it will help another parent out there.
Sunday night, Alex asked if I would snuggle with him in bed. I said fine, as the boys had Monday off from school. I’m not as strict about sleep on…Continue

Today was the big day. We finally had our Valentine's Day Party! As usual, things don't always go as planned, but it all worked out for the best. I planned on having a lot of games, prizes and music, but with the popcorn snack boxes and a house full of mostly boys, I had a feeling it wouldn't be all frills.…Continue

Valentines day is around the corner and with time on our hands, budgets and finding that perfect gift it gets a little stressful to organise! Some people love to dress up and dine out (easy option) but I find it is always so busy. Don't get me wrong it is a lovely treat at times but we can do that any day! This year we decided to stay in and watch a film with some cocktails & chocolate! So what's the plan for dinner? I thought of making a simple, tasty & healthy Pizza. Heart-…Continue
There are a lot of parents who would think that a ride to school, or watching an hour of TV with their kids would count as “quality” time and would be enough. With today's hectic lifestyle most parents lead, trying to be at two places at once, balancing between their jobs, caring for their children, doing the house chores, and so on, time has really become a precious commodity. A commodity that at some point will inevitably begin to elude each and…Continue

Chores have to be done in every household. Usually the parents do them until the kids are old enough to start helping out, and then the “fun” begins. Here are some tips on how to re-think getting your kids to do chores.
Make your family a team. Kids want to be…Continue

Since we home school there are little things that we don’t do. We don’t dress up for the 100th day of school. We don’t have a crazy dress day. And we don’t usually exchange Valentine’s Day cards with a class.
This year we are involved in a home school co-op and the kids are exchanging Valentine’s. I knew I wanted to do something a little fun, a little different. I wanted this to be something that Genghis would remember doing.
I got an email introducing me to…Continue
