I want to be that mother who can stand up and say I am a strong confident mother and I know what is best for my children. We breastfeed and co sleep, We listen, We include, We eat chocolate and snot smoothies, we trampoline and grow frogs, we sling, we carry and we try and understand and work with our children without resorting to punishments, threats or coercion.

She did it!!

Ellie decided she was ready for a bike on the 15th July.  A  month later, after having about 5 or 6 practice sessions at her pace, with our help, instigated by me, she did it!  I wonder if now she knows she is able to do it herself, she will decide to go on it herself without prompting from me.  I am SO pleased I did not push her (literally and not) on this and fuck it up!!
