This part is about sharing moments from my world, whether it’s the day-to-day and the regular or the really remarkable and odd little things we do. Whatever those moments may be, they’re all special because they make up my world. With children, there are some particularly awkward times and some laugh out loud moments. Some things might upset and shock me, whilst others make me truly happy. The moments I share here will be things that really stand out or because they just mean something to me. I hope you enjoy all the weird and wonderful things I share here and join me on this journey of oohs and aahs.
