I’m the mum of a beautiful, bright, funny 3 1/2 year old.  She’s the best thing that ever happened to me.  She took a long time to come and join us, and there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t thank my lucky stars that she’s here on this planet.  There’s also not a day that goes by when my stress levels hit defcon 1, and I’m left wondering how a toddler can push my buttons more than I knew they could ever be pushed!  Baffled by my own inability to manage my stress, and in the absence of expensive one to one therapy, I thought occasionally emptying my brain onto these pages, might help.  Who knows?  It may even help someone else too.
