Welcome to This Parenting Lark – my new weekly link-up for your parenting posts. Leave a link to your favourite/best/most popular post on parenting from the last week and try to visit one or two of the other links too. Your posts can be about an aspect of parenting – the highs, the lows, the funny bits, the hard bits, the burning parenting issues doing the rounds – whatever you want!
This week, PK has been hitting loads of speech milestones, as well as showing signs of his rebellious streak. Bean has been trying hard to improve his chess game (though with me as his opponent, it’s a bit like the blind leading the blind!), and Plum has announced that she is vegetarian, just like Herb, the hero of her favourite book. Whilst that doesn’t faze me at all (Bean was voluntarily vegetarian until he was about 4), I do wonder what she might eat – both Bean and Herb are fond of a variety of vegetables, whereas Plum prefers to stick to potatoes, the occasional pea and her own weight in satsumas. Parenting Plum is certainly interesting – I wouldn’t change her for the world, but she’s certainly a strong character!
