The Seven Deadly Reads

The Seven Deadly Reads

It seems like the most natural compliment in the world but it can have unforseen consequences: saying who your baby looks like.

And we also explore the dignity of the Single Mum and the challenges faced. It ain’t no hand-out, people.

Doesn’t He Look Like His Daddy!

I think we’re all guilty of looking at a person’s baby and telling the parents who we think he or she looks like.

 

How The Social Welfare System Has Treated Me…

When I was 13 or 14 everyone I knew had a little part time job.

 

More Babies Anyone?

No one told me how much my heart would burst with love.

 

Creche And Burn….(Or What Happened When I Signed Up My Son For The First Time)

Another first arrived on my doorstep this week. The looking-after-Tom-full-time and working-from-home model (whilst relying on my Mum for the days I have to be out) is no longer viable.

 

Three Babies In And This Is What I Know About Pregnancy

I have just recently had my third baby so I felt compelled to write this while it’s all still fresh in my mind.

 

Can We Talk For A Second About Grief?

Almost one year ago I got the call that everyone dreads.

 

Dear Pre-Baby Me…

I wish this was something you would one day get to read.

Stay sane, thanks for peeking at this in your inbox and hope to share with you next week.
