Let's face it most parents at some point in their lives face depression.
It's unavoidable. In face I looked at some figures about depression. (Don't worry I'll get onto talking about my children soon!)
I looked at interesting data from the Mental Health Foundation. In 2016
Quite major considering we're coming up to Xmas. Many people find the Xmas time stressful and depressing. Even worse if you're on your own.My Mum sent a message to my wife saying if we didn't want her coming over for Xmas that's OK. My step-daughter was taken aback and expected her to be at home during Xmas time! She likes her step-nan!
Not everyone is as lucky as that I think.
As for my two baby daughters. Well, like about 3/4 of children (and parents) at the moment various bugs are swanning around. So plenty of coughs, sneezes and dribbly noses. Plus diarrhea and vomitting as well.
Thankfully, my daughter, Tabitha, is out of hospital so now she's home or in a nursery recovering. My daughter, Blakley, was taken out of nursery for a couple of days with the vomitting and diarrhea. She's better now.
It's my step-daughter's turn instead.
Yes, both my wife and I have had a stuffed nose etc but we're surviving...
I think only the cats are okay apart from the increasingly cold and windy weather. So they had to rough it by being inside and fed when they could...
