Vlog Of The Week: What To Pack: Kids Carry On | Emily Norris

This week’s Vlog Of The Week is by the lovely Emily Norris. Her video on What To Pack: Kids Carry On is all about her impressive preparation for a 9 hour flight with two children and a baby. In this vlog she inspires us that anything is possible when you put your mind to it – including a long haul flight during the day with 3 little ones!

She has some incredible ideas for activities and distractions, snacks and storage. She really does make it look easy! Emily’s carry on ideas are so inspired we just had to shine a spot light on them and make it our Vlog Of The Week. Any parent will testify that travelling is not easy to do with little ones, so hats off to Emily who clearly knows a thing or two about how preparation is everything when you’re a mum! We’re sure these insider tricks to make flights more enjoyable – for the kids (and the other passengers too!) will come in very handy one day. Suddenly we’re tempted to book a holiday! (Thanks Emily!)

Vlog Of The Week: Feeling Isolated & Lonely Sometimes As A Stay At Home Mum

This week’s Vlog Of The Week is by Alex Gladwin, it’s called ‘Feeling Isolated And Lonely Sometimes As A Work At Home/Stay At Home Mum’.

The title kind of says it all, but we think that it’s an incredibly brave and honest vlog that so many mums can relate to. Motherhood is often described as lonely, but beyond that, feeling isolated isn’t discussed as much as it should be. Long days at home with little ones can be mentally challenging and emotionally difficult when you’re the only adult company you keep. Alex eloquently puts into words how loneliness can manifest in motherhood and in doing so manages to connect with so many other mums at the same time. Having only gone live a few days ago the comments under this video are full of other mother’s feeling the exact same thing.

Alex ends the vlog talking about some of the steps she is going to take to try and combat the loneliness in her life. We think she is amazing, for talking about what so many of us try to hide. Mums are very good at pretending everything is alright but actually, mums often feel alone.
