'How are you doing with those two boys?' people ask. The answer is: 'Today I am awake. So today is good'. Do you remember those guest posts I published back at the beginning of July, with people giving advice about moving from one to two children? I loved them.

Last, but definitely not least! I'd planned for this guest post series to run on consecutive days. Giving birth the day before kind of threw a spanner in the works. But I've loved reading and posting these, and hope you've enjoyed them too. Thank you so much to everyone who contributed.

If I’m being honest, it was established purely as a vanity press, … Continue reading What I Wish I’d Known About Two: We’re going to need a bigger boat
