It’s Daddy’s Day

It’s almost that time of year again when we make a giant fuss over our husbands – Fathers Day. I’m eyerolling whilst writing those words. Like they did THAT much. But in the interest of keeping the peace, and more importantly having something to throw in his face when he forgets Mother’s Day AGAIN, I bring you something fab that the kids can make, courtesy of a brilliant site called Technology Will Save Us.

Every child’s artwork is a masterpiece for any parent, and it deserves a spot on the refrigerator door. However, if they like mine – they create their erm..masterpieces on a daily basis, storing them could be a huge problem.

Well it’s officially Autumn. Heating on (hooray – well, I say that by my husband doesn’t agree) and umbrellas up (boo).

But guys, new season…new reason…to shop.

And these high tops by Skribbies are not only practical, but they are also something to keep them quiet for a bit as they can be fully customised – again, and again and again. Here are my girls checking out the kit…

Skribbies Customisable Kids Trainers (7)
The idea of Skribbies came about when their creator, Jennifer Duthie was reminiscing about the sweeter days of childhood.

Inspired by the fabric paints of the 90s, Jennifer wanted to develop a product for kids that was more versatile and would allow kids to keep on customising. Available in pink, blue or black a pair of Skribbies is £35.90. Each box contains a pair of high tops, a sheet of monster stickers, wipeable marker pens and a wristband that serves as a marker pen holder and eraser!

Here’s how it works…

So here the girls get down to business. Very very busy girls. They are planning the design. It’s a series of negotiations that culminates in one designing one shoe and one the other. But oddly the finished result – like my twins – is identical.

Little Puggle Big Fun

TV is my FAVOURITE babysitter. It doesn’t charge by the hour. Is NEVER more beautiful or young than me. It’s the only time my kids are quiet and not bothering me. Fabulous. But I do know that there are better ways to occupy the girls. Cue….Little Puggle. Now this is another one of those concepts like Anorak Magazine, I wish I’d thought of myself *stamps stilettoed foot*. Let me explain.
