Letter To My Nan – 1 Year

Hi Nan, I don’t think anyone knew how we’d all react when today came. Monday and Tuesday I cried several times, feeling anxious and agitated about today.

Hunky Monkey. I Love You!

I’ve been feeling really connected with my OH recently. There’s been a boost of both our efforts with each other and it’s made such a difference. Last night, unexpectedly P2 fell asleep and my OH and I chatted for hours. About the past, about the future, about us and about everything really! I love evenings like those. They feel magical. …

**Warning Graphical Post Alert – Only For The Eyes Of Experienced Poop And Sick Cleaner-Uppers AKA Parents!** To this date P1 has only ever been sick on me once, that was 1 minute past midnight on New Year’s Day 2009! She was only a week old. And now, four years on, that is the one and only time she’s been …
