This week I’ve found myself later home from work than normal. Not in any way working late just later than normal. My slightly longer days haven’t been much fun for me but have made a big difference to my daughter.
Yesterday she got upset several times during the day asking for me. Today she had her weekly day at Playgroup and for the first time ever she became upset there too.

Reading a story with your little ones before bed is the best thing EVER!!! Guess how much I love you by Sam McBratney is the perfect story to share before bed.
Guess how much I love you tells the story of a young hare and his Dad preparing to go to bed. As they settle down for the day just like many parents and children they exchange comments of loving one another.
Our first daughter was born on 1st August 2012. She was a week and a half early and despite a long labour everything went naturally and safely. Baby was healthy, Mummy was well and we quickly settled into our new lives as a family.
Life was as you would have hoped as a new parent. Our daughter got settled into breastfeeding without too much trouble, she slept well and Mum was healing nicely following the birth.
Today Mummy had to go and help out at the local NCT newly new sale so it was just Moo and Daddy at home. Due to the naff weather we thought we’d make some gingerbread men for mummy to enjoy when she got home.
This morning I was talking to my 2 year old daughter about what she had planned for the day. She was going to bake some biscuits with Mummy, go to Music Makers, then going swimming with some of her little friends and this afternoon one of Mummies friends was coming round to visit. A visit busy day, I’m sure you’ll agree!
Once I had listed off all of these wonderful activities she tilted her head, she has a habit of doing this when asking a question, and asked me “Coming Daddy?” I could have cried!
