To Darcie, my first-born Bear. You are the tiny human that made me a mummy and I cannot thank you enough. As I sit here the night before you head off on a brand-new adventure tomorrow, it just feels so soon. Tomorrow you start pre-school 5 mornings a week for the upcoming school year. We’ve seen the school, met the teachers and know that you will love it there. However – now we only have a few short hours to… Keep Reading

Perhaps it’s because you’re my youngest child or perhaps it’s because I know you are my last, but I don’t feel like I am ready. 2 seems like a big number for me, so much more so than when you turned 1.
