A day in the life of the teen… The teen, who I will cheerfully admit has far better fashion sense than me and a much more interesting social life, and it has to be said, better school dinners too, asked if she could share a day in the life of the teen in the house. […]READ MORE
I am a huge fan of turmeric latte. A friend introduced me to them when I wasn’t well a few years ago with a bad chesty cold. She told me turmeric was good for me and made me drink it. It took me a few goes to get used to the taste and now I […]READ MORE

*This is a collaborative post with Smiggle* We are big Smiggle fans in our family. The kids love to be able to go and spend their pocket money in-store, and will always try and persuade me to let them visit when we are in town and near our local store. I have to admit I […]READ MORE
*This is a review and giveaway post. I was kindly sent an item to share about* My children call me old, and sometimes even infer that I have been around since the dinosaurs walked the earth (charming!) but I prefer to call myself “old school style and proud” for certain things and whilst I am […]READ MORE

Welcome to Cats, Kids, Chaos. We started over 9 years ago, originally as The Mad House of Cats & Babies, in a blur of sleep deprivation. We share family life as we live and see it, and try to keep it real. I write about food allergies, homeschooling, parenting a teenager, product reviews and everything in between. The odd cat post may feauture too. Welcome to the chaos, grab a cup of coffee and join us!
