It seems that at the moment both B and I are constantly watching our little boy and saying ‘I’d love to know what’s going through his head’. I bet 99.9% of parents have thought and said this multiple times when their children are young enough not to be talking properly. TM doesn’t say many words yet, certainly not accurately anyway! He is, however, always making plenty of noise and ‘chatting away’. Continue reading
As parents, I think we are often guilty of focussing on the things we wish we could do better and the things we feel guilty about.

But, for the purposes of this, my son is now a year old and I thought it was a good moment to reflect on the things I have learnt in my first year of being a mother.
This is in no way a sponsored post, but I have been the lucky recipient of #MamaMail and recently finally got my arse into gear to send some…and it’s such a joyous thing that I wanted to write about it. Especially at the moment, when so much in the world seems sad and full of hatred and fear. Continue reading
