I often find it comforting when I take Squish to the park, because I see all the other kids there actually almost identically to him, albeit with much better balance than him anyway. Being the eldest of our two, he’s paving the way to new grounds in parenthood, so like I say, it’s good to
My First TV Experience Friday 23rd May started like any ordinary day… 4 year old tantrums, baby sick, regretful eating of things and housework avoidance in the shape of social media.

When I had Squish back in 2009 I never gave cloth nappies a second thought. Cloth nappies I feel come with really negative connotations of almost digressing to the days when looking after babies was deemed a lot more hard work. Don’t get me wrong, I love hearing stories from older generations of how their
I remember back in 2009 going to all the antenatal classes… breathing techniques, staring at dummy vagina’s and sitting in a room full of pregnant women doing pelvic floor exercises.
