Helen's parenting win

All parents will relate to this one! Helen recently rejoiced when she convinced her son to wear something other than a football kit for the evening.

A follower commented: "Great pic Helen..!!! They look ready to create havoc! Jumpers are cool…and their boots!"

Mum and son time

Aw, nothing beats a cuddle with your kids and we adored this post from Helen.

She wrote: "Just when you think you have broken your child (pretty sure I spoil him) they turn around and ask if you can use their pocket money to buy coffee for anyone who had to sleep outside because it’s cold, and can you put it online mum, because people sometimes watch you at work so they might copy you, then more people who need a coffee might get one...... not posting this to brag (trust me he’s often the worst behaved/wildest kid in the room/capable of the biggest meltdowns ) posting because he asked me to and sometimes kids have the best ideas."

School of rock

In possibly one of the cutest celebrity kid photos we've ever seen, here are Ernie and Louis all dressed up as rockstars.

"Grateful for teachers that make a day of maths seem like the best thing ever. We appreciate you," said Helen.

Pumpkin patch!

It was a day of fun at the pumpkin patch for Helen and Louis, with the famous mum telling fans: "HE IS A VAMPIRE ..... not a magician. Don’t anger the four-year-old...... ps once you're done with the pumpkins... soup, ratatouille or leave it out for wildlife."

Touching mum's bump

Helen shared this photo of her boys touching her baby bump and it really is too adorable. Little Louis looked so excited to have a new baby brother or sister.
