Lockdown Wins

Lockdown Wins

The CoronaVirus pandemic has been something that many will never experience. It’s something that our children will be telling their grandchildren about. Their grandchildren will learn about at school and talking about how when Grandma Becka had Covid 19! Lockdown 2 was dominated by this and being apart from the kids. With school still open it’s a little different to Lockdown 1 and that’s the one I was to reflect on. It doesn’t bare thinking about the tragedies of the…

It’s been five months since my husband and I separated. This is probably the first post I’ve written on the topic. I do have other posts that I wrote in the days and weeks following it.

There, I said it. I hate weaning. I just don’t get these people that say “oooh i love weaning, it’s so much fun watching them explore food!” For me, it’s a lot of pressure and a massive ball ache! Some say that parenting in general is a lot of pressure and I suppose it is. There is a pressure to parent them into half decent human beings that don’t lick windows/eat their own poop. With weaning though, there are so…
