Hello everyone. I haven’t posted much but follow everything when I can and borrow advice you all give. My D has just come in to the living room and said (after breakfast) “mum I’m still hungry, can I have another piece of toast?”. I know you’ll all appreciate how big a deal that is so just wanted to share. We still have lots of bad days but today feels like we can breathe again 😁
Celebrating here for you. [clapping-happy-smiley-emoticon]
