Separation anxiety in a three year old

If I think about separation anxiety, what springs to mind is a baby of around 9 months old who has suddenly decided he only wants to be cuddled by Mummy. Or, perhaps a toddler of around 18 months who clings to your legs whilst you are trying to prepare her dinner, begging for a carry.  more “Separation anxiety in a three year old”

Goodbye Day care, hello Pre-school

Yep, just when you thought all the ‘starting school / pre school’ posts were done for another year, here’s a latecomer.

Us parents, we love a baby party trick don’t we?

I think that’s how It started. Our first baby, at around 9 months learnt how to dance. But not to any music, just One Direction. Any other track would not do and she would throw an absolute paddy. At the time ‘Kiss you’ was in the singles charts and was being played on the radio constantly. We of course downloaded it so she could ‘perform’ on demand.
