Parenting With Challenges

March 29, 2020

Where do I begin? I never thought anything like this would happen in my lifetime, it just didn't seem feasible a few months ago. Oh, and our Easter plans have been thrown out and burned! I'm surprised at how quickly both Blake and I have adapted. That being said, it do...

Happy New Year everyone! I hope everyone has enjoyed themselves this holiday? We certainly have, and I'm sad that the holidays are almost at an end. My bank balance on the other hand, is crying with relief. I don't go too overboard for Christmas, and I will not get int...

As a parent I can be quite fussy about the toys I allow my son to have, as a young child he pretty much wants anything and everything. One of the few toys we can both agree on is Lego, he likes it because it's fun, I like it because it requires him to focus and improve...
