So in case you’ve missed the news, daytime TV (I’m assuming) and trending hashtags, today is known as Blue Monday and is apparently the most depressing day of the year in the northern hemisphere. There’s a ray of positivity to kick start the week!
I’ve long been a fan of the monthly siblings posts in the blogosphere, other bloggers sharing updates about how their kids are doing as siblings rather than individual updates. With a new year comes a new blog schedule (ish!) and high on the list was to document how Toby and Martha are doing as brother and sister.
It’s 02:09, I’ve not slept in around 19 hours if you ignore the fleeting long blinks in between Martha’s night wakings. I can’t be sure that the words I think I’m typing are the ones that are actually appearing. Toby is generally up 1-3 times a night and Martha 4-8 times.
Everyone has opinions. Sometimes opinions differ from those of others. That’s fine, it’s part of what makes us who we are and life would be dull if everyone was the same. But – and this is a big one – there is a huge difference between healthy conversation or debate and downright rudeness and argumentative behaviour.
