Summer; the time for lots of family trips with the kids, and making sure your bag is well stocked to keep everyone going throughout the day. Of course, the boys always want to take their own bags for their drinks and any toys that may just fancy a trip too…

Come September, Noah will be going to preschool for fifteen hours; including a full day on a Friday so he’ll need to be well stocked then with a change of clothes or two (got to love toilet training!), and a packed lunch.
Fortunately we are already sorted for both of the above with Noah, as the lovely people at Trunki sent him one of their brand new Toddlepak Backpacks to try out!

As an adult, I don’t really like to wear clothes that make me stand out too much, so I guess I dress my boys in them instead – I love to see colour on children, they are born for it! I’m always on the lookout for brightly coloured t-shirts for the boys to jazz up jeans or shorts, and I love a funky print too. So when Tiger Prints offered us a choice of t-shirt to review from their website, I was eager to find something that Jacob would love. Read more
