SING DVD and Blu-Ray Movie Release

*This post is in partnership with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment*

If your little ones love Despicable Me and The Secret Life of Pets it's highly likely that they will become big fans of the latest release from Universal Pictures - SING.

The Special Edition movie will be available on DVD and Blu-ray from 22nd May (next week) which is perfect timing for the half term holiday. After all, we all know how hard it can be to keep the kids entertained when they are off school but this Golden Globe Nominee, with plenty of fun characters like Gunter the pig, is bound to put smiles on faces.

 We didn't get the chance to see SING at the cinema but the trailer looks fantastic!
Not seen it yet? Take a peek at this...

This heart-warming family film with a wonderful soundtrack and all-star cast will be loved by all. There are plenty of laugh out loud moments and loveable characters to see - the Mini Mes and I are so excited to grab the popcorn and snuggle up for a night in front of the TV in just a few days time. I'm certain some fizzy drinks and pick n mix sweets will fall into my basket too at the supermarket!

Society has gone through many seasons to get us to where we are today. There was a time when women were expected to stay in the home and raise the children, while all the finances were earned by the men of the house. Then came the two working parent homes. Economics made it important to have a second income and women wanted to branch out and use their minds and express themselves beyond that of their domestic duties. 

Today, more mothers are making a change that allows them to have careers and be stay-at-home mothers. This is truly the best of both worlds. In making this transition, they can use their talents to earn a living and be accessible for their children and completely in tune with their lives. But, how did they manage? What steps did they take?

Step out of tradition

Maybe your child is having a birthday, or maybe you want to celebrate an anniversary, graduation, or wedding. While a cake and gifts are traditional, there is a better way. Plan a bon voyage party before leaving on a celebration trip. Instead of traditional cake and gifts, set up a colorful and delicious candy buffet. The decorations are easy to gather and you can order candy from online suppliers like Sweet Services and have it delivered to your door.
