Bad Hair Day
When your 3-year-old daughter tells you she
really wants her long hair cut off to her shoulders, DON’T DO IT. Just get a trim! She’s only 3 years old, she doesn’t know
what she’s saying. She’ll walk out of the hairdresser, sucking her

Parenting the second time around: have I really learnt anything?
When I had my first child, I had no idea
what I was doing. I lived in a state of shock, madly reading baby books,

A Mid Week Moment of Joy... and then business as usual
I sincerely hope this Wednesday night pans
out better than the last. This time a week ago I was heading into a
sudden and spontaneous night of blissful alone time, a rare occurrence these

I Was Funny Once!!!
The other day I, casually and quite
confidently, asked my six-year-old if she thought I was funny. ‘No Mum you’re not funny,’ she said. ‘Dad’s
funny.’ When she saw my crestfallen face she added,
‘Well Dad’s the funniest and you’re the second funniest.’ Grea...
