Counting sheep

by Julie Alpine-Crabtree

Thank you to everyone who has steered me in the direction of The Baby Whisperer’s tried-and-tested pick up, put down technique.

It doesn’t always work (I am weak) but when it does it is awe-inspiring.

Next time brother and sister are screaming, one needs a poo, there’s still soup smeared on every surface and limb from lunchtime and I want to run for the hills, I will take a strong painkiller few deep breaths and look at this picture.
