Parenting With Challenges

August 28, 2018

As the saying goes there is something to be said for learning from experience, and as I first-time mother I think I'm doing a pretty good job. But there is always room for improvement and parenting is no exception. Here are some of the things I'd do differently with a...

The summer seems to be going by pretty fast, probably due to the fact that I was organised this year and I had a little luck on my side. I'm a planner when it comes to a lot of things, particularly when it comes to financial matters. I save 11 months months out of the...

Where have all the years gone? One minute I'm pregnant and the next I'm holding my newborn in my arms, now that's a feeling a will never forget. The next thing I know he's asking me if he can go to nursery at two years old. Then at four comes his first year at school,...

Blake is my only child and earlier in the week he turned five, and to say he was spoilt rotten would be an understatement. As he is my only child he has my full attention and any spare money I have goes on him. That being said I'm fairly strict and while he is indulged...

During my late teens and early twenties I did what most people my age do every weekend. I went out drinking and only regretted it occasionally. That ended when I became pregnant and had a baby aged 23. Now it's my child that gets to go out nearly every weekend. However...

It is just my child that is insanely greedy when it comes to food? While he expects me to share mine with him no questions asked, the same can't be said for the other way around. Blake is so tight when it comes to food that you would think that he hardly gets fed, but...

We've had an amazing week, my two aunties from Scotland came to visit us and it's been wonderful having them hear. I only get to see them once or twice a year so we like to make the most of it. Blake has been loving the attention and has been using it to his full advan...
