The First Six Months as a Preemie Parent

Six months have somehow passed since our little ‘dinks’ arrived prematurely into our world and I cannot believe it. At times it still feels as though it was only last week that I was back and forth to the hospital, having emotional breakdowns, longing for my baby to be able to come home, yet here we are months later, sitting at home with a very happy and healthy little boy who has come on leaps and bounds. Becoming a preemie parent has been an eye-opener and a very different journey to having a full-term baby and I know I am incredibly lucky that my boy is here safe and well…

Help, My Four-Year-Old is Broken!

Ok, so tell me this. How come I heard so much about the terrible two’s and then the Threenager stage but why has no one ever mentioned the four-year-old to me, eh?! The last two stages were nothing compared to what we have hit right now and I don’t think I am exaggerating when I say my four-year-old is broken!

Is anyone else’s child around this age happy one minute, having a meltdown the next, then angry, then storming off to their bedroom, crying, then suddenly happy again? Continue reading “Help, My Four-Year-Old is Broken!”
