When our eldest daughter started reception last year, tears and settling in were expected, and delivered. We breezed the first week or so, carried along in the excitement of new uniform and all the fuss and comments of well wishers, and a few weeks in it hit like a tonne of bricks. more “Tears at the classroom door”
A Child is born
My first son Jul was born, and like most mothers, I adored him and doted on him, and above all I wanted everything to be perfect for him, but sadly that was not to be. Very early on my husband and I detected that something was not quite right. more “GUEST POST: Nourish”
From day one, the very beginning of our new job as parents, we took it upon ourselves to ensure our tiny newborn was snugly and safely fitted in her group 0 car seat on that first journey of many; taking her home from the hospital.
It’s a hard mentality to un-do, and quite rightly so, as the safe transit of your precious cargo remains the number one priority on any car journey. But five years on, I’m wondering if I have lost my way on the do’s and don’ts of car safety with kids. more “Children, car seats and the law…”
Today, on September the 8th, it’s international literacy day. Another crazy new ‘day’ you might think, but this has been a ‘thing’ since 1965, to highlight the importance of literacy across communities, societies and for individuals. Across the globe illiteracy continues to remain an issue across poverty stricken communities, and particularly an issue to education deprived women. But even right here in the UK the National Literacy Trust suggests that as many as 25% of adults are illiterate and struggling with day to day tasks. The quality of handwriting can have a direct impact in success of secondary and further education (Institute of Education), so getting it nailed early on is actually far more important than you may imagine. more “Helping your child’s cursive handwriting with Uniball #InternationalLiteracyDay”
