Lock down 3.0

 I can honestly say hand on heart I never for one moment believed I would be living through a pandemic. 

Telling my children everything will be alright all whilst holding my tears back. I can do neatly say Iv cried more in front of my children in the last few weeks than Iv wanted too. But much like everyone else my own emotions are a little hard to keep in check right now. 

I remember when I was little around 6-8 I was desperate to be a a teacher. I loved my middle school teachers, they were kind and so wonderful, I cried when I had to leave year 6, I was devastated I wouldn’t have Mrs Bohoon. God I’m so glad I didn’t become a teacher i have since realised I am fucking shit at teaching. 

My mental health can go from perfectly stable to seriously manic in just seconds at the moment and I don’t know what mood I will be in when I wake up. 

My kitchen is lined with dirty laundry and dishes, my lounge floor hidden under oodles of toys. I’m knee deep in print offs of school work I have no idea how to do. 

Iv never felt so confused or overwhelmed in my life, I feel like I’m loosing the plot slightly and anything even the smallest thing can make me cry. 

I see all these mums smashing it and loving being in lock down and I honestly wonder why I don’t feel like that. Why can’t I find it as calming and enjoyable as they do. 

Mums I see you, I hear you and I want you to know that your amazing.

[AD] Mookie Christmas List Toys

Christmas is fast approaching and Mookie toys have the perfect gifts, giving your child the tools to unlock their creative side with Tybo Tidy Tie-dye design studio or unleash their imagination with.

Autumn is tie-dye obsessed and the Tybo Tidy Tie-dye design studio is perfect for anyone who is the same, it’s super easy to use and comes with everything you need, you just need to provide the clothing to personalise. The possibilities are endless with the colour matches and patterns you can create, Autumn really enjoyed just how easy it was to create her very own first Tee, although she did have a little help from me mainly for adult supervision.

It has all the instructions which are super easy to follow, and the results are just brilliant. We honestly cannot wait to create another one.

Another favourite is the CurliGirls, CurliGirls gives you the opportunity to style and restyle hair time and time again, the only limit to it is your imagination.

So many styling opportunities, you just need to dampen the hair to reset it and you can start creating all over again, the possibilities of hair styles are literally endless. The dolls come with their own hair accessories and tools to make the best styles.

Both are easy to use and play with, they give hours of fun that you can recreate and change every time. 

Tybo Tidy Tie-dye Design Studio is for children aged 6+ and retails at an RRP of £19.99. Its available at Argos, Amazon, and Smyths Toys.

CurliGirls are for children 3+ and are available in single sets, twin sets and deluxe sets, prices from £9.99. They are available at Amazon and Smyths Toys.

What we say about it 

Its super easy to remove from the box an piece together, this for me is bonus points especially when you have a child desperate to plat with it, it comes with the batteries needed to play (another bonus to be noted), there is so much for them to do and play with on it which is brilliant to help with imaginative play! The control panel has voices and sounds from the show, and it launches weapons and the crane really does move.
