living with a toddler for 31 days button

This is true for me… I am going to live with a toddler for 31 days in October.  We are respite foster carers for a little girl, and for the month of October we have her full time.  So what better time to write about toddler stuff.  With my kids all growing up having a toddler around certainly changes life and I have had to dig deep to remember those skills that I used to have when we had toddlers around full time.  Because our little girl is a foster child, we won’t be placing photos on this blog – so this won’t be about ‘what we did today’ but rather, what parenting practices, or ideas we lived out throughout these 31 days.

This is the anchor blog post – all will be listed here as they go live.  So if you want to bookmark this series – this is the page to bookmark.
