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.

7:30am and I am sneaking around downstairs so as not to wake my little man. For those of you reading my blog for the first time, I have an 8 month old son called Charlie. Normally he is a great sleeper and can go 12 hours most nights, but last night he woke at 4:30… Continue reading Day 2 | Donate clothes to charity.
It's Monday 11th January 2016, 1pm: Currently in the kitchen making Charlie's dinner. I have one foot on his walker to stop him moving because he keeps going to the drawers and pulling them open - need to start baby proofing. I'm trying to distract him by singing the word "Washing Machine" - his second… Continue reading Day 1 | No Caffeine ☕️
