A little while ago I went to an event with Bridgestone.

Now three years in there are days I think I’ve got this parenting thing sorted, mostly I don’t, but that’s life.

Pushing Through It

I have literally lost track of how many times I have said ‘I just push through it’ this week. Don’t worry, I’ll push through it. It’s OK, I can push through it. Well you know, you just push through it. Again, and again and again.

As a parent I think that’s just what you do. As a working parent I have to. as a working parent who is also working very hard to not be a working parent I have to push through it even more!
