Haircut http://wp.me/s47NKe-haircut

It was a warm day and I’d been busy with Josh in the morning going to town, looking round the shops and the library so after lunch I was tired and honestly had enough of watching the cbbeebies panto for what feels the millionth time so I had a power nap 😁

When I woke up Josh came up to me gave me a hug told me he loved me and then started to play with my long hair (he usually does this when he’s…

Adding - an achievement

Adding – an achievement

Today as it was Easter Monday we went on a little trip to Keswick which is one of our favourite places to go as a family. We enjoy feeding the ducks and watching the boats on the lake and having a look in the pretty shops.

Josh is 5 and part off what he needs to learn for school is counting which he has struggled with greatly mainly because he doesn’t have the confidence in his ability as he’s…

Butter and Jam on Toast

Butter and Jam on Toast

As a parent I think we sometimes forget to celebrate the small things our children can achieve we forget that they’re still small and all things new they have learnt to do are a huge achievement for them (even if it may be something simple).

For my son (who is 5) in the past week has learnt how to spread his butter and jam on his toast of a morning this is a huge achievement for him and he did a…

Ouch - My Head Hurts!

Ouch – My Head Hurts!

Last Friday after finishing work I came home to find my son (who was at his grandparents after school) had bumped the back of his head on the banister of the stairs (he was standing in the hall-way and he’d put his head through – they’re horizonal slats and as he’d pulled his head back out quickly and hit the base of his head just above his neck).

He didn’t cry when it happened and after saying…
