I’m struggling, help

Today I decided while the kids were at school, BBG was having a nap and Dad was busy doing allotment things I would take a 5 minute peaceful toilet break with no interruptions! It was bliss! I came back and cried however, as had missed a phone call from an NHS scheme called Short Breaks….

Mummy Keeping Up With the Joneses

As a Mum I can’t believe how competitive Mums are. It seems you can’t go anywhere without someone saying their kids are better or their parenting skills are perfect. You go to a baby class and the mums are talking about the organic home made dinners that they make and purée down for their babies…
