As parents we’ve had a complicated relationship with the dummy or dodie as it’s dubbed in our house. Yeah, we’ve found the dummy a must to help soothe the baby back to sleep during the night. Despite the ‘good or bad’ debate, our main gripe is how they seem to be the Houdini of the inanimate object world, how and where they go I will never know.
This week we celebrated our second year blogging, as a brand and as a platform to share my ropey parenting techniques.
Our son Daniel turned one last week. Here I’ll collect my thoughts on his first year, his birthday and parenting the tricky sophomore child.

It’s often the case, you can get your child all the presents in the world and they’ll still end up sat playing amongst a pile of wrapping paper or with the cardboard box the thing is packaged in.

On December 1st 2017, a mysterious door appeared on our kitchen skirting board. He came with a letter saying he’d been sent by Santa to ensure the kids were being ‘nice.’ To his credit he also brought treats and an advent calender and thus we gained an annoying pint sized lodger for the month. No, it wasn’t the plot of a Channel 5 Christmas B movie. It was Elf on the Shelf and this is what happened.
