  1. You feel that 8am is a luxurious lie in.
  2. You realise you've driven a whole journey by yourself and forgotten to change the children's CD.
  3. Your 'best top' is about 5 years old and you still refer to it as your 'best top'.
  4. You enjoy 'pegging out'.
  5. Your idea of a good night probably involves peace, quiet & a bath.
  6. You become a master at balancing towers of tupperware on the draining board.
  7. Your car bears a striking resemblance to a rubbish skip on wheels.
  8. You catch yourself saying things that your mum used to say to you.
  9. Your once plump sofa cushions have been replaced by an assortment of festering apple cores, biscuit crumbs and those really annoying plastic toys from the front of children's comics.
  10. You love it, you hate it, but wouldn't change any of it.

This post was written as part of the British Mummy Blogger's carnival with no other theme than to be fun and uplifting.  I chose to pull together a list of 10 things that I know make me look at myself and laugh and think how much my life has changed since being a mum.  The photo was taken last weekend on my birthday - cycling with the kids & my husband in the New Forest & sums up the happy day with the kids trying to push me down a slope into the stream!

Found you via a carnival, my entry was pretty similar to yours. Ican relate to all those you wrote, especially the 8am lie in! lol Mich x

Hi Michelle - one day our time will come - even though that long, luxurious lie in shimmers on the horizon like a mirage!

That made me chuckle, especially the sofa and the car!! Our sofa is both trampoline and a slide-rarr!!

Yes, it is a sad but true fact isn't it? Far too boring to sit on a sofa!

Customer Feedback

Yes, all is great with the order.  The kids unpacked their cases straight away and have been wheeling them round the house full of teddy bears and shoes ever since!  They are thrilled with them and the quality looks great, so they'll be perfect for our up-coming first family holiday.
I don't think there's anything we'd have wanted you to do differently.

 I was extremely happy with the products and the very efficient delivery, it was great to receive e-mails informing me about the delivery, and the ability to pick an alternative delivery address, as you also stated the delivery time! This was great as I’d ordered bulky and heavy items…I’ve already recommended Kids Travel 2 to friends and I shall definitely buy from Kids Travel 2 again … thank you.

My son loves his monkey suitcase and we can’t wait to go on a plane next week and use it! – thank you for designing such a great bag ideal for toddlers to take on holiday and very thoughtfully designed to accommodate both parent and child.

Superheroes Rule!!
I also wanted a couple of trolley bags for my 6 & 7 year old sons, so dad and I didn't always have to squeeze everything into our cases. My dilemma was finding something cool that would last through many years of growing up. I didn't want to buy new ones every few years, as good luggage is expensive. And this is the product. Fabulous! My sons are DELIGHTED with them. This product is soooo cool I can't imagine they will ever grow out of it. Excellent dispatch & service too!!

Message: Just  read your email-yes we are very happy with both the product and the service. The children loved their cases and they are away on holiday at this very moment. Thank you. I will use your service and recommend you to friends.x

We received the suitcase on time on the day you arranged. We are especially satisfied with your attention to the delivery; excellent service. I would say you have got it right from order to delivery. I really like it when there is a personal intervention to sort things out. So, well done and thank you.
