Now as a parent of any age child, I’m sure you will agree that one of the things we have in common is the numerous trips into the bedroom at night to put the covers back on your little ones, but what if i told you that I have an answer to your problems!

This here is like a pillow case for your mattress and covers, it is from fidget bum they kindly sent us it to try out with Blake.

Now you guys who follow us day to day will know that blake is the most energetic little toddler, but this doesn’t stop at night he constantly moves around in his sleep which ‘use’ to be a problem but not anymore, I honestly cannot recommend this product enough, it has saved us so many trips into Blake’s room during the night.

When we go into his room in the morning his covers are exactly where we left them.

We had a lot of people say that it looks like it will restrict them during night and that it might panic there children, but I can assure this isn’t the case blake is more than happy to have this on him, in fact he will not go to sleep now until we zip it up at least half way.

If this is of interest to you then you need to check fidget bum out!

Welcome to my blog

I’m finally getting around to starting a blog as requested by a lot of people on our instagram’s, something i actually never thought I would do because this is mainly megan’s thing .

So here we go a bit about myself, my family, and everything in between.

Our name’s are dean and megan, I’m 24 and megan is 23 this year although everyone around us always says we seem so much older which is a good thing… I’m sure megan doesn’t think I act my age most of the time but hey nothing wrong with acting  kid at times.

Me and megan met as next door neighbour when we were both living with our parents we would always say hi to each other over the fence, I thought she was ‘smoking’ but megan was in collage doing her level 3 NVQ in hairdressing so her mind was on the job of finishing that.

One day we were both in our gardens and we actually had a full conversation about the football of all things, megan was clearly trying to impress me by giving the big football chat, which I later found out she has zero knowledge about football or interest.

As the small talk over the fence was as far as it seemed to be going, my parents decided they was going to move to Shrewsbury so obviously I went with them, on moving out day just before I was leaving megan come wondering out to her dads car in the smallest shorts and top you could imagine, definitely a big distraction, and I still wonder to this day if it was a tease attempt.

I thought that would be the last time I would see her which was gutting obviously, but as we moved little did I know my dads girlfriend had megan on Facebook WINNER.

Next thing I obviously sent her a request on Facebook (lucky girl must of felt like Christmas) followed by a message asking if she remembered me and could I have her number suttle right?.

A few weeks passed and i finally asked her to meet me, we dated got to know each other without a fence in the way and no football talk which was hard seeing as I thought she LOVED football,  next thing I knew i was moving in with megan & her parents six months later we got engaged, the wedding plans quickly began to come together as we never hang around with anything in life as you all know,  we set the date 24.9.2014 we had just six months to get everything together megan being megan had to do pretty much everything herself as she is such a ‘perfectionist’ well thats what she calls it… everything from table/chair decoration to choosing the music/food we all know that most people spend years planning there wedding but not us.


Then 18 months later we had our first baby ‘Blake Alan Austin’ born weighing 7lb 4oz little did we know how much he would change our world.


Only 2 years later our second baby was born ‘Hallie-May rose Austin’ weighing 6lb 11oz completing our life as parents quicker than we thought.


We are now enjoying life as a family of 4 making amazing memories over the past two and a half years as parents and loving every minute of it.


Despite the speed our life together started nearly 5 years later, two beautiful children and three houses later it still shows no sign of changing anytime soon but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Please continue to follow our journey as we share our life with you step by step.

Hope you enjoyed my our blog, thanks for reading.
