Nic I think you sound like you're doing a great job. Motherhood has certainly been a lot more challenging than I expected too but it sounds like you have a wonderful bond with ivy and that's the most important thing. I was sorry to read your post about your own mother but I agree that having gone through that will make you an even better mum. Ivy is one lucky bubba. I wish I could help you out, even with a hug! Vent away to us anytime you need.
Nala it's so good to hear from you. I loved reading how you have been going. I learn so much from everyone's experiences. Sorry to hear about all the physio visits, hopefully they won't need to operate.
Does anyone have any pointers on avoiding flat head? Zoe is constantly lesbian to one side no matter what I do!
