Mums Show Live

I am very excited to say that little ‘ol me will be joining lots of other mums and dads at the Mums Show Live, which is being held at Alexandra Palace on 16 – 19 May.

The show is for mums and dads of 4 – 12 year olds; so school ages kids, but not quite those who are starting to be dragged into the un-communicative, and grumpy land of the teenager…though very possibly bordering on it. The show is designed to allow us to:

“Get face to face with the discussion raised by other parents, books, newspaper articles, TV shows, expert blogs and websites as well as teachers and of course our own mums and dads.”

Most people will be after some great insights from the many exhibitors, partners, brands, celebrities and parent bloggers that are going; though this mum will be terrified that mentioning poo too much in public doesn’t disrupt her street-cred, as KiddyCharts have managed to blag / impress our way onto two of the sessions in The Conversation Theatre.

The first session is on Thursday 16th May. It’s called Non Negotiable and is with the lovely, Helen Wills from the blog Actually Mummy, Kate Barlow from The Parent Consultancy, Naomi Richards (The Kids Coach), and Sue Atkins from TV fame and discusses child behaviour. The second one is about following that dream as a Mumpreneur and setting up your own business; Being a Mumpreneur: Expert Advice and Experience. Can’t think why they think I might know something about that, eh? This second discussion is on Saturday the 18th May.

But there is more than me there! In fact, even if you ignore KiddyCharts being there. There are plenty of other reasons to go, not least that they are currently offering Dads and Kids free tickets if you use the code BUTLINS at check out.

There is so much for the kids to do, my kids are actually coming with me on the Saturday, an I can guarantee, they are not going to be watching me chatter all the time, I suspect that they may just be sidling off to the Play Zone to have a go at some of the Good Toy Guide listed toys on offer to play with there.

However, if that”s not enough then there is The Tree House as well which has a great collection of kids entertainment, courtesy of Little Bird, including:

  • Face painting
  • Zebra ceramics cafe
  • Theatre for kids
  • Scalextric
  • Monster Factory
  • Delights craft,
  • and more!

Aside from the kids entertainment, there may even be some great answers to some of those parenting dilemma’s, or burning questions that you have. Not only am I speaking there, but there are some other wonderful people, including a few other fellow bloggers:

As well as speaking, there will be a few bloggers there just to check out the show, including Crazy With Twins,Mummy Be Beautiful,Family Four FunBoo Roo and Tigger Too; hopefully a few will pop along to give the mad ones that have agreed to speak a little moral support too! ;-)

So why not pop along yourself; what have you gotta lose – other than a few of those parenting stresses?

I have been given free tickets to this event, however all opinions are my own. And to be honest, The Treehouse looks fun enough for me to go to and get my face painted in?!?

About the author

I'm a mum, a part-time analyst at NelsonHall, and the owner of KiddyCharts, not necessarily in that order, and typically all at once... I have two fantabulus children, Stuntboy and Little Miss Chatterbox, who are the inspiration for my business. They continue to be the driving force of much of what we do in our lives, often when we aren't actually expecting them to be. My long-suffering husband, Brad (ahem), puts up with my rather untidy nature, and haphazard house-keeping (even more ahem) skills. This blog covers my diet coke-induced musings on being a working mum, covering stuff like parenting, reward charts, social media, mummy guilt, which I have a lot of it seems, and anything else that seems relevant or interesting after a shed load of caffeine. I am not trying to be an expert on anything on here, its all about sharing some experiences with a few other people. Hopefully you will find them helpful, interesting, and occasionally they'll bring a knowing smile to your face. So stay for a while, and get to know me, my family and KiddyCharts. Hope you like us all.
