Hello Beautiful friend,
I am writing this whilst I sit proudly on my new sofa while my three-year-old daughter, Una, retreats under the dining table for her nightly tantrum to avoid going to bed. This is her current way of protesting going to bed, and she will remain there until she eventually (about an hour or so) calms herself down and asks to go to bed. She will not let me comfort her or let my husband and I retrieve her - it only makes it worse. So I am seizing the moment to write to you whilst feeling proud and equally exhausted.
