I’ve been very fortunate to have visited Florida three times during my childhood and teenage years (hence the photos that I’m hoping my family don’t mind me publishing!), and now that Toby and Martha are here I’m desperate to take them there too! My dad has decided that for his next milestone birthday, we’re jetting off to Orlando for a family holiday, and we will most likely look at getting a self catering villa from Clickstay to accommodate us all.
Toby is now 4, and with that comes a whole host of emotions which he doesn’t really understand yet. He’s a clever boy, but given that us so-called grown ups so often struggle to comprehend our emotional state, it’s not fair to expect a child to do so effectively! Enter The Irish Fairy Door Company.
It’s well documented across my blog and social media that I live with depression and anxiety – it’s something I refuse to hide because not only does it need to be as socially acceptable as any other illness, but I know from many messages I’ve received that I have helped a lot of people. It helps me too, to write. Another huge part of my ‘therapy’ as someone living with depression, is being outdoors.
Dear Toby, At 11:58 on July 8th 2014 you came into the world and created a brand new Mummy. Ever since then you have continued to make me a new Mummy every single day; you guide and teach me how to be the best I can for you, and I’m sure I can say the same for Daddy. We both learn so much from you.
**This is a collaborative post** Martha is already showing great sporting prowess at only 2; she runs and jumps constantly, can balance well, scoots like a child at least double her age, and can dribble and kick a football like a (semi) pro! Phil and I love this about her, and are keen to give her any opportunities possible for her to progress in any sport she may want to pursue as she grows up.
