Naming things in a meaningful way is hard. Babies, pets, types of lego bricks that your 5yo is desperate to find but you have no clue what a ‘flat glowy two-er with a slidy-part’ looks like (in case you’re wondering, in our house that’s this but in translucent neon yellow).
This 5 year old little lovely is Super Lady. Super Lady comes out on special occasions, like parties, or when called upon to face big challenges, like y’know tasting barley for the first time or using a noisy hand drier.
We’ve all been there. Life is busy for us parents, some would say organised chaos. Stuff going wrong is an inevitable part of day to day working parent stress. But with a few subtle changes we can try to head off problems before they happen. But what can we do?
