LEARNING CORNER: AUGUST

Time is flying and I seem to be saying to everyone with babies at the moment, “omg where has the time gone?”. So, Mia is 11 months old now and ever the eternal dweller, I’m so emotional about her looming 1st birthday. It’s been such a rollercoaster ride but hand on heart I can honestly say that Mia is my biggest achievement. In fact, as a very smart woman pointed out this morning, being a MUM TO MIA is also, my biggest and best achievement. There’s nothing quite like having a little person who is totally reliant on you to help them navigate through this world.

And so, with joy and motherhood in mind, plus a little nod to the incredible little ladies (and men) that we’re all raising (or about to raise), today’s post is dedicated to all things cheerful, joyful and as always, helpful. Here’s what I’ve been reading this month…
