All of a sudden my little boy has become affectionate! It’s happened overnight really and is just magical. My heart literally bursts. Here is how it feels to have my toddlers love.   When you were a baby, you liked to lie alone, It made it kind of tricky to settle your crying tone. You weren’t a baby that liked to be held too much, But I knew it made things better if I gave you a gentle touch.   Now you’re a a toddler, a little boy you say, I noticed the difference only the other day. You asked me… View Post

Thank you to the lovely ladies over at Something Crunchy Mummy & My Life After Logan for my nominations for the Liebster Award (pop over to their blogs, they are both great).

Friday wasn’t a very good day. I had an anxiety attack in the middle of Thursday night. I don’t remember the last time I had one of them. As a result of it I didn’t feel very well on Friday morning and couldn’t go into work. G was home so was able to do nursery runs as usual for the morning and take on Little Man duties for the rest of the day. So I spent the majority of the day in bed feeling poorly and sorry for myself. As I have said in previous posts I almost feel anxiety… View Post

  Last Tuesday we had Little Man’s 2 year development check with the Health Visitors. He had had a similar type of review done at nursery when he turned 2 in October but I thought it was best to go along to this too, to ensure his medical records were kept up to date.

I’m sure that isn’t the aim of them at all but when your child is being examined to see what he can do, and it… View Post
