A new feature for you, to supplement the written monthly updates that you read here on the blog; Parenting Highs and Lows will be a chatty, rambling video about all of the good and bad things that have happened over the course of the month – struggles and triumphs, positives and negatives, failures and successes.
Because sometimes, by the time I get around to writing the Toddler, Baby and Me update, I’ve forgotten all of the bits and pieces that have brought me utter joy, or sent me into a spiral of despair. I’m so busy writing about how Ted is getting on with his weaning or how Angelica is coming out with funny words that I miss out the smaller – more casual – anecdotes. Or I’m so preoccupied with documenting the smaller, more casual anecdotes that I completely miss out the bigger picture. The achievements that have felt utterly life-changing, or the mistakes that have seen me repeatedly banging my forehead on the kitchen table.
So here’s the first episode; Parenting Highs and Lows: January 2018. I will try my best to do one a month – as I do with the written update – so that there’s a sort of “video diary record” of my ups and downs. If you’re not already subscribed to the Youtube channel, then do so here and you’ll get the videos straight to your inbox. Similarly, if you’d like to get blog posts emailed to you then you can sign up to that here!
OK, wine/tea/gin/Magnum at the ready, let’s chat about sleep, slapping and leaving constructive comments…
