Co-Sleeping And Twins Seriously What’s The Problem

Our twin girls are six years old and yes! Shock horror they still find their way into our bed most nights of the week, does it bother me well quite honestly not a lot. This is my reasons why?

It’s a 24/7 job that gives you basically no rest for the first 18 months. So it would be no surprise that eventually you give in and… [Read More]

Do I Regret Having Children: Maybe, Maybe Not

This is a hot topic of recent days. Apparently there have been many parents that, although they love their children, have said that they’ve regretted having them. This is something I struggle to understand. Over last week or so it’s been all over the radio with many people debating it.

It’s 2018 and 25 years ago I was… [Read More]
