My son at 13 months.

It's a little while since I have written about Charlie, his routine or development. I find that the older he gets, the less reassurance I need that I am doing "a good job". When Charlie was newborn I was constantly seeking advice on what others were doing in terms of parenting, and how other children… Continue reading My son at 13 months.

Day 1 | No Caffeine ☕️

It's Monday 11th January 2016, 1pm: Currently in the kitchen making Charlie's dinner.

I'm trying to distract him by singing the word "Washing Machine" - his second… Continue reading Day 1 | No Caffeine ☕️
