I've got a 9 and 11 year old and its really hard trying to guide them through life when in reality, I haven't got it anywhere near figured out myself. The 11 year old has started a new school and this week is the first week I have seen her truly happy and content since she started.
I've slept so much better these past few nights. I know all that sounds incredibly corny and trite but like others have said, I've become a complete sop now. A sop who ribs them incessantly.
