I definitely missed the date with this one.. As usual with my Me and Mine posts, I am supposed to have this post written and published on the last day of each month, but I didn't quite manage it this time around!

December flew by didn't it? Please say it wasn't just me who felt it. Christmas has come and gone and here we are in a new year! My little boy is due back to school tomorrow and so today marks the end of the two week half term. I remember feeling so excited about the fact that he was going to be home with us for a couple of weeks. I was eager for him to have a break and to not have to worry about school. Don't get me wrong - he seems to love it and is doing well, but at four years old, it's making him so tired and the tiredness makes him very grumpy! And I'm pleased to report that over the past two weeks (which have flown), he's been back to the Ethan we know and recognise. Sure, he's not an angel (what kid is?) but gosh it's been good to not have to deal with so much 'tude.
