It’s not something I’ve noticed before. I guess I wouldn’t really. How is my mental health affecting my child? I’m much more of a bury my head in the sand type of person. But something clicked the other day. I noticed that my 2 year old terror child constantly asks people “are you happy today?”.… Continue reading Mummy Guilt…growing up with a depressed parent.
Firstly let me just say I’m not a fan of a ‘how to…’ blog post. So, if you are as crazy as me and have decided to get married in 2 months time you aren’t going to find a step by step guide here!
