When Bee was about three or four years old I could make her cry by pretending to be a lion.
Guest post: talking with teens
Today is guest post day, courtesy of a mystery draw over at Little Mummy. I was thrilled to find out I was swapping with Eggs, Cream and Honey, as obviously I love cake. I was less thrilled than when I found out she is up against me in the MAD blog awards...
The one where I get my contraceptive implant taken out

When can you let children walk to school on their own?

Vote for Slummy Single Mummy - Best New MAD Blogger Award
You may remember several weeks ago a post in which I begged in a very undignified fashion for you to nominate me for the new MAD blog awards. (Thats ‘Mums and Dads’, not an actual diagnosed condition, although I could probably get in on the back of the ADHD)...
