During this unprecedented time, I wanted to do something positive and put focus on something other than bad news, so I decided it was a good time to potty train my two-and-a-half-year-old son. My husband and I have attempted to potty train him before, but literally gave up in a matter of hours after pee... Continue Reading →
For the last two weeks, people have been selfishly stockpiling and hoarding products due to the coronavirus outbreak. It has been almost impossible to find anything in the supermarkets, beginning with pasta and loo roll, now fresh fruit and veg.

A while ago I posted asking what you'd like to hear about, and I was asked about what parenting challenges I have experienced and how I have overcome them or attempting to overcome them.

I'm sorry that I haven't posted for a while. I've been through a lot of ups and downs lately, my health hasn't been great and honestly, I haven't really felt like writing.

Happy Halloween to all! My candy bowl is full, and pumpkins on display. Whatever you are doing today, staying in to hand out candy, trick or treating with the kids or a bit of both, enjoy.
