My plans were that Ellie would be completely toilet trained by the time the 6 week holidays were over but the closer we got the more I realised she really wasn't ready. She would have tantrums whenever we offered the potty or cry if she didn't have a nappy on. She would tell us it… Continue reading No more nappies

That is a fact that everyone knows but when you are parenting after baby loss, parenting through grief and trying to cope with your own emotions these illnesses can feel so much worse than they really are. Okay, I dont think that any parent hasnt dealt with a poorly… Continue reading Illness.
I thought that Id give a more detailed insight to some of the places we have gone to this Summer.
