It has been some time since I have returned to writing and providing commentary on my parenting journey.

We are where we are

So we are where we are - by the way I hate that term. After the monsoon of an Easter holiday, which my family all took their turns in covering and my son got to spend some quality time with all of us, and even tried out one morning at a new holiday club, which… Continue reading We are where we are
