The Ordinary Moments – Bites and Bruises

I usually share nice little happy memories for my The Ordinary Moments posts. I’ve written about running in the park, sort-of date nights, and life with three children, but today I’m writing about a part of parenting I’m sure I’d rather forget: bites and bruises. I am covered in them.

There’s something I really want to write about but I feel very conflicted about doing so… mainly because I feel I’d have to be a bit cryptic in order to not absolutely discredit whatever professional reputation I have left, but that feels a bit weird at the same time.
