So as part of getting me ready to go back to work we have been slowly building up the time Sidekick is away from me and staying with my folks.

We even managed a car journey!! This is an achievement.

Being a first time mum or dad is hard. I know I’ve said that before and I’m sure I’ll say it again, but it really is.
I fully appreciate now what people said, that you really don’t get how hard being a parent is until you are one. What worries me is that I’m only just getting going on this whole parenting journey.
