Translation: You need to give me a chocolate biscuit IMMEDIATELY or I will scream until you/Daddy/Grandma relent and I get my way. (Talk about a broken record.) Ok, so parenting is full of surprises, some good, some bad. And with a fully conversant toddler comes many, many (so many!) demands and tantrums, but also a… Continue reading “You need to start showing me more respect”
I’m on the train heading to Manchester, which has been rebranded “Womanchester” for this one day only. Which will probably generate an interesting response and it got me thinking about the important women in MY life.
