Tips to help understanding your little ones often confusing stages of learning

Children can be baffling at the best of times. Since the moment they are born we are often left guessing about what they want from us, we think it will get easier when they can talk but when they become verbal it can all be just as confusing as their language struggles to keep up with their busy minds. Sometimes I watch my boys run around the house in disbelief, they seem like crazy little nutters jumping from one activity to another.

DIY Christmas Tree Advent Calendar

I’m getting into the Christmas spirit nice and early this year because we haven’t had any decorations in our house for the last 3 years and the boys are now old enough to fully appreciate Christmas!  They are having so much fun helping me decorate the house and we have even made our own super cute little DIY advent calendars filled with treats!

All About That Park Life

When I was pregnant someone told me that I would need to "run my two boys like dogs" as they have so much energy. I thought it was a funny way to describe tiring your children out but now, two years on, I TOTALLY get it! If I could have my two on a leash and ride a bike while they ran next to me I would! The boys have so much energy so we spend a lot of time at parks, trying to do just what that person told me, run them out like dogs. However one problem, I try to choose parks in the middle of fields or far from roads as my two kids like to run in different directions.

Pregnant With The Nuggets

I have been putting off writing this blog. To be completely honest my pregnancy wasn't much fun at all, in fact I kind of hated it. I was really sick so writing this feels like re living it and it's something I try to forget. But here goes, as I know you would like to read about it. So I will put your needs before mine. Don't say I'm not good to you. Here goes it....

Reeve Nuggets X Little Flock Of Horrors

One of our favourite merino companies is Little Flock of Horrors, they make great quality and super cool merino for little and not so little kids. The nuggets wore so much of it last winter that we both decided that we needed to make a collab happen and this was our creation. If you have followed me on Instagram for a while then you would have heard about this before; we took pre orders for people to get their Nugg collection before it hit stores this winter. Well if you missed out then today is your lucky day, it's now available again at Little Flock Of Horrors as well as in kids stores around the country. I'm a massive fan of monotone colours so of course the whole collection is black and grey! They may also have been our colours of choice since the nuggets love to get messy whenever and wherever possible!

Keeping Those Tootsies Cosy

So let's face it, winter is on its way. I'm such a summer girl and I'm sad that those long dreamy summer days are gone...but I do get excited over the prospect of filling up the boys wardrobe with winter goodies! That's one the best things about growing children, new wardrobes I get to fill each season (kidding, kind of). A burden on the wallet, but oh so much fun to do. Can you tell I'm a bit of a shop-a-hollic? So the first thing that was on the agenda was keeping The Nuggets toes warm with some Ugg boots. I have pulled together some of my favourite options available below, both high and low price range so there is something for everyone!

Where to start?

Sooooo I'm here, glass of wine in hand with some awful TV on in the background deciding what should be my first proper, proper post should be. I know there is the I'm Anna Reeve one, but that doesn't really count. Ok, lets start at the almost beginning, I say that as I'm starting at the beginning of Jay and I, as that's the beginning of The Nuggets and they are what have led to this, my blog, Anna Reeve.co.nz (yip I'm that un creative I just named it after myself, so clever...right?!)
