For 2018 I am thrilled to be part of the James Villas Blogger Ambassador programme, find out more here. And in January 2017 I appeared on BBC Radio Berkshire talking all about my parenting journey and blog. You can read all about it here.
This morning my friends and the kids got together for brunch. We tucked into our pastries, sausages, eggs... while the kids made a lovely, messy concoction of croissant and playdoh. Standard.
Soft plays. Whether you love them or hate them, they are a necessity.
Which soft play dad are you?
I have recently been asked how I found attachment and bonding with my son. It’s such a loaded question. And in my naivety, during the adoption assessment process I didn’t really think about it. Is that bad? I should have.
We’ve been led by our son in everything. To me it feels so natural to allow him to do things at his own pace. And why not? What joy is there in forcing a child to do something a) they don’t want to do and b) they aren’t ready for?
A week ago, almost two years to the day we met, we received his life story book. And it hit me. My son is adopted. I didn’t give birth to him and I’m pretty sure my husband didn’t either…
I recently started this blog to share my experiences of parent and toddler life. But i know from being a prospective adopter myself 2 years ago that to hear real-life stories really helps. So i feel i have a little responsibility to the fellow adopters out there to share the journey we went on.
