“She could of cut her foot open”

It’s 9am and this photo pretty much sums up my day so far! I broke a plate whilst washing up. Then P1 broke a glass that she accidentally knocked over.

Find me on Facebook & …

“Today was really weird”

Today was really weird. I returned to Essex for P1s swimming lesson and we spent some time with my Grandad. I haven’t seen him since we moved out. I stupidly dressed myself and the girls in summery outfits and forgot coats. Typically for England it rained a lot. This wasn’t the weird part, the odd part about this was that my …

“I guess change really does effect children in many ways”

I’m experiencing some parenting troubles since the move. I guess change really does effect children in many ways. To start, P1 has really changed in her attitude and behaviour, not really for the better especially at bedtime. She’s doing the things she knows she isn’t allowed like turning the main light on. Although I’ve had excellent reports from her class …
