One of the drawbacks to having an only child is that there is no easy playmate on which to palm them off when you need to get things done, or are just bored with listening to them. I enjoy spending time with Monkey, but equally sometimes I need a break and so does he. Normally we achieve this during periods at daycare, but we have spent the last two weeks on term break so no activities for us.

I'm usually pretty laid back about being the mom of an only child - after all it is my choice - and usually I don't rise to people's comments about how I do want another child really or that I should give my son a sibling. But, when this post from The Stir blog popped up on my Google Reader today something touched a nerve.

I'm pretty useless at keeping New Year's resolutions. So much so, that a couple of years ago I made it my resolution to stop making them. But, this year I've decided to give it another go and I've made three.

Often when I sit down to write this blog (my new year’s resolution by the way is to post more often), the ideas that spring to mind are funny, but after the recent events in America, I thought something softer would be more appropriate.

A while ago I wrote a post about how bedtime was my favourite time of day. I take it back! Actually bedtime itself is not actually too bad, and I still love the hugs and love, but the time just after bedtime is currently driving me crazy.
