Raising a sensitive child.

sensitive child

I’ll start by saying Grayson is an absolute diamond, that as his mum he can do no wrong in my eyes and that I love him with my whole heart regardless of who he is and what he does. This post isn’t me in any way criticising sensitive children, if …

2 years.

Grayson beach

Grayson is officially 2 years old as of today (technically as of 7:50 tonight, but that would just be mean!) and what a wild 2 years it’s been. I remember bringing this tiny little baby home and just thinking “what now?”. I’d never been able to keep a plant alive, …

Parents aren’t invincible.

Ash Grayson

Ways to encourage responsibility in toddlers.

Grayson Light assist

Grayson is turning 2 in April, and he’s at such an amazing age where he’s still so little but he also wants to be more independent and do more for himself rather than have us do things for him. Although we don’t want to push him to grow up (every …

Why the toddler stage is my favourite.

I often remember a lot of parents saying “new borns are a breeze, it’s toddlers are the difficult ones” and I remember looking down at my little squishy baby wondering how he could ever become difficult. Grayson is now 20 months old, and heading for 21. He hasn’t been a …

Why I prefer Christmas as a parent.

I’ve never liked Christmas. Don’t get me wrong, when I was a kid I’m sure I did but in more recent years I’ve never been a huge fan of Christmas. My family have never been HUGE on Christmas and due to a lot of different factors I just found it …
