TSUM TSUM Squishies are the adorable Disney squishy “stack ‘em, collect ‘em” craze sweeping the UK! Originating from a highly engaging and fast-paced smartphone app in Japan in 2013, the TSUM TUM Squishies toys have been a massive hit with children in the UK.
Omg where did that time go? …. 11 years ago today my beautiful girl came into my life. She has kept me on my toes since the day she entered my life and I have a feeling she will keep me on my toes for the rest of my days as a mother too. In the last year she has grown up so much and slowly she has matured to the lovely little girl I see before me today.
Today Big Bird completed Primary school, I can’t actually believe she has finished at her first school. It only seems like yesterday I was dropping her off to the reception classroom and walking away with the thought of how far away Year 6 was from us. Her time at Primary school has flown by so quickly I can’t believe its all over for her.
This week it was the childrens sports day at school, it was the first and last sports day that they will ever do together. This year both children are in KS2 so they had their sports day at the same time. Luckily the rain kept away it was cloudy and the sun came out in bursts, we were lucky considering the weather we have had the last two months.
Check out one of the latest editions to Lego City, folks you are looking at the In/Out Volcano Exploration Base Construction Set 60124. Little Bird spotted this in the toy shop recently and instantly labelled this the coolest Lego set he had ever seen.
Fed up of the normal mugs, picture frames, “Worlds best Father” teddies that are about for Fathers Day?? Why not treat the man in your childrens life to something special this Fathers Day. Lego have a fantastic range of products that are aimed at everyone especially the dads. Mr M spends lots of time building Lego sets with Little Bird and he has a list of man Lego Sets that he would like to build.
I asked Little Bird to pick a couple of Lego sets that he thought Dads would like this Fathers Day. I think his decision was based a little bit on what he liked and also what he would like to build with Mr M who is the daily father figure in his life.
Last month the Bird family decided we were going to try something new and that something was to hatch some birds, I am not talking about another Big Bird or Little Bird I am talking about the feathered variety. I have always wanted to hatch chicks at home and just before Easter we decided to get an incubator so we could try and do it ourselves.
I have always wanted to hatch chicks but Mr M talked me into going for duck, so ducks it was! I bought an incubator and a heat lamb and then all I needed was the eggs. I bought some fertile Call Duck eggs and we couldn’t wait to put them in the incubator and start turning them.
Today is Little Birds 8th Birthday ….. where did that time go? He has grown up so much over the last year. He has come along way at school, home, with family and friends. I am so proud of my little man he takes everything in his stride and is generally a happy boy all round, especially if he has gadgets or Lego to hand.
