The Siblings Project | December 2018

15.12.18


I cannot believe this is my last Siblings project post of 2018! This year has seen my duo turn to a trio, and my big two welcome their baby sister into their little gang. It's been amazing to watch Indiana take on the big sister role again. She was born for the role, and absolutely loves playing and looking after Lilah. Parker has definitely struggled with the big brother role sometimes (he was the baby for 2.5 years I suppose), but I know he is smitten with his baby sister really.

December has been a really fun month so far, and having our cheeky three definitely make it that much more special. It was the first year Indie and Parker really got into helping with decorating the house - although I think I may have preferred it when they didn't help so much... Of course Lilah has spent every day since destroying said decorations, but I think I'm going to be really disappointed when they're gone for another year.


I love looking back on how our three have changed over the year, and I think this year's will be extra special, as it has captured Lilah's whole first year! So here's a look back on the Littles this year...

Christmas with the Sky Kids App

14.12.18


We are really on the countdown to Christmas now, and I think I may be just as (or possibly even more) excited than the Littles this year! December is a rather crazy month though, with soo many events and days out to fit in - seeing Father Christmas, school nativities, ice skating, and more. That it is so important to find some down-time in amongst the festivities.

If you read my previous post, then you'll know how much we've been enjoying the Sky Kids app. The dedicated Sky Kids app is described as "a world of entertainment for them, peace of mind for you", and is available to download on your phone or tablet at no extra cost (to Sky TV customers with the Sky Kids pack). Since my last post, the Sky Kids app won a Mumsnet Rated award - 103 Mumsnet testers tried the Sky Kids app, with 94% saying they would use it again, and 97% saying they would recommend it. And I can completely see why!


In between all of our Christmassy activities, I think it's lovely to let the Littles relax with the iPad, and watch a few of their favourite shows on the Sky Kids app. They can both have their own unique profile which features shows suitable for their age, so I know that they're safe doing so as well. They are both currently obsessed with The Gruffalo and Stick Man at the moment, and we've all been enjoying Christmas specials of their favourite shows (especially Hey Duggee!).

Excitingly, this Christmas Sky Kids is sponsoring the ice rink at Winter wonderland in London! Speaking from experience, queuing with children is a nightmare. So Sky Kids have provided iPads in the queueing area of the ice rink, so us mums and dads can entertain their little ones with the Sky Kids app (full of festive games, quizzes and their favourite shows) while waiting. It's such a fab collaboration, and one I know will be a hit with both parents and their children!


Finding the time to relax and snuggle up at home during December is so important - we all need to relax to get the most out of the festive period! So we will definitely be letting the Littles enjoy some down-time using the Sky Kids app when at home. And of course downloading some of their favourite Christmas episodes for long car journeys over the next few weeks too.
