When you make your blog real!

There is nothing harder than pouring your heart and soul on to a page for all to see! It’s like the quote “I wear my heart on my sleeve” and it leaves your heart exposed for whatever comes at it good or bad!

Now some of you may be asking “what does he mean by that?” it simply means...

His post is awesome and I loved reading it! In fact I read it three times now. It has got me thinking though about the things we say as parents to our children and I can’t honestly think of one good reason why we can’t tell our...

Mum Guilt

Mum guilt is a very real thing and I have finally wrapped my head around exactly how it works (or at least how I see it works and you can correct me if I’m wrong?)! Mum guilt is a never ending circle feeling guilty! If you give too much attention to one child you feel guilty that you haven’t been giving enough attention to the other or if you give your children all your attention you feel guilty because you have been...
