No sooner were we celebrating T’s second birthday we were then onto Easter! How fast is this year going? We are already a third of the way through it already.
This Easter Sharon decided to take a few days off before the weekend to make up for the fact I was working one of the days over Easter (yay to shift working!), so with this we decided to make the most of the time off together (and the weather).
The last time we visited Spring Barn Farm was back in May when T had just turned a year, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. So when the folks from Spring Barn Farm invited us back for another visit to see their new features and to show us what they were up to for Easter we couldn’t say no.

We are already a quarter into 2017, which means I’ve stuck to Bullet Journalling for a whole 3 months! I would have hoped this would have been the case, but with busy schedules it’s actually pretty tough to find time to sit down and properly update the BuJo.
Don’t getting me wrong, I’m sad to see that a couple of pages have fallen to the wayside as I really don’t have time to sit and draw things, for example, and certain challenges I set myself (a book a month, as another example) have also slowed right down, but nevertheless, I’ve still managed to keep up with the main diary body and I’ve made use of the other pages I’ve created to help me plan ahead.
It goes without saying that the past year has absolutely flown by and I’m now going to be completely predictable and say the old saying of; ‘it feels like yesterday’ that T was a baby and just turning one. But it really does. I can’t believe he’s now two years old.
With T starting nursery and me returning to work full time I’m not surprised that the weeks have flown by. We’re set in such a busy routine of work, swimming, weekends that there’s often zero time to just stop and observe. As soon as T turned one it felt like all the milestones were suddenly being reached. Walking and talking to name but a few.
It goes without saying that whether you’re a same sex family, a single parent family, or a co-parenting family parenthood is full of proud moments. Eating solids, walking, and talking all come in at the top of the list when it comes to achievements.
As a same sex family though we have our own proud moments…
- Being accepted as a family
- Not having questions asked about your family set up.
- Being called the right names!
But as same sex parents, there are a handful of milestones that mean more to us than any of the others. For us, we haven’t reached many as T has only been around for a mere 23 and a bit months, but the other day we had our first ‘two mum milestone’.
