ClassDojo Keeping Parents Informed Of Their Child's School Life

This is advertorial content written for ClassDojo.

Every day when I pick my four and five years old up from school I ask them what they have done that day, I always get the same reply "I don't remember" or "Nothing". Sometimes they will tell me they haven't played with anyone that day, which after asking their teacher at parents evening I find out not to be the case at all as they are always playing with other children. As my children are a bit reluctant to tell me about their days, and also because my youngest is one of the youngest in the school (he is an August baby) and my daughter has speech delays I do worry about how they are coping and getting on at school. So when I heard about ClassDojo I wished my children's school used this as it sounds like a great way to help us parents know what our children have been up to and how they are getting on at school.

Finding Out Where I Come From With Findmypast

AD

Do you ever wonder where you come from? About all the ancestors who came before and helped make you the person, you are today? Now that I am older and have children of my own it is something that I often think about. When I was a little girl my grandparents would often tell me tales about growing up in the war, about where their families came from and about family members that were no longer with us. I wish I could remember what they told me as I didn't have much interest when I was younger and now I am older and interested my grandparents are no longer with us. I think that is the reason why I am so curious about finding out about my past, My Mam died when I was younger and so did all my grandparents so I only have my dad to tell me things and he can only tell me about his own family, not my maternal side.

Things I Loved February 2019

February was a quiet month for us, I know it is a shorter month but it really did seem to fly by this year. We didn't really do anything exciting as we have been limiting days out as we are saving like crazy for our upcoming wedding. The kids had a week off for half-term and it was lush to spend time with all three of them at home, we had lots of lazy mornings in our pj's watching films with the heating on keeping cosy. Things were quiet blog-wise this month, paid work was really good this month but reviews and days out were a bit quieter than normal. For the first time ever I struggled a bit picking ten things that I enjoyed this month, as I feel like we haven't really done much. 

So here is a look at some of the things I loved in February 2019.

Poopsie Sparkly Critters Review

Items sent for review. 

One of last years must have toys was Poopsie Surprise, a cute unicorn toy that pooped slime. We reviewed Poopsie Surprise last year and my five-year-old still plays with her unicorn Rainbow Brightstar (she is a huge unicorn fan). Well now there is a new Poopsie toy on the block, Poopsie Sparkly Critters and we were kindly sent two to review and see what we thought.

two packs of Poopsie Sparkly Critters toy

Like the original Poopsie Surprise, the Sparkly Critters have the surprise element of being packaged so that you can not see which character you will get until you open the box. This is something that really appeals to my children as they love any kind of surprise toy. The Sparkly Critters come in really fun looking soda can type packaging, when you pop the can open you will then find blind bags filled with the Sparkly Critter and the accessories you will need to make slime. Each set comes with one Sparkly Critter, a soda can style bottle/syringe to feed the critters, spoon, storage bag which is designed to look like a bag of crisps and glitter to add to the slime.

4 Months Until I Say I Do

In just four months time I will be saying I do and getting married and I am feeling very overwhelmed and nervous about it all now. The wedding diet I said I was going to go on hasn't happened, we have so much to still organise and pay for and I am wondering if we will get it all paid for and organised in time. Please, everyone, keep your fingers crossed we manage to pull it off! I know people plan weddings in such short spaces of time and all the big things are in place for the big day but I am a natural born worrier.
