The Scary Part of Parenting

Does anyone else find that when their child does something potentially dangerous, they almost obsess about it for the next few days? Since Eden has been a toddler, this is a pretty frequent occurrence for me, but yesterday really took the biscuit. If you have your judgy pants on, please don’t read any further.  Continue reading

Infertility in the Postnatal Ward

As someone who has been through infertility, it is often at the forefront of my mind. It makes up a lot of what I do, what I say and it still dictates how I feel about a lot of things. I’ve realised over time though, that those who haven’t been affected by it genuinely have no idea. Why would they, of course? There are things I have no idea about as well.

Why The World Needs Doc McStuffins

The “big” news story on Facebook last week was that kids’ show “Doc McStuffins” had featured a lesbian couple with a child. And wow. The internet was losing its collective shit all over the place.

Woes of Being a Working Parent.

People love to talk about working parents vs being a stay at home parent. Living in London, I’m not sure Amy and I had much choice about both of us working. The cost of living here is horrendous and as much as we could scrape by on Amy’s wages, we would just be scraping by and that’s no way to live if you ask me. So, we both work full time.
