She is a digital media professional by day, and mum to three-year-old twin boys for the other 24 hours of the day. It’s become a common sight – parent hunched over smartphone screen while their […]

Charlie and Amy
Dec 01

This guest post is authored by my friend Amy Blackham, who I met at my antenatal classes in Bournemouth. Her son Charlie arrived two days before my daughter… At 30 months our little boy, Charlie, is a fully fledged toddler with all the attributes you’d expect.
