Between my wife and I we have two things that we are really passionate about. For very personal reasons those two things are mental health awareness and breastfeeding. We have supported each other through difficult times in these areas and there are lots of overlapping themes in the care for the two.

Children’s imaginations can be difficult. I mean, that’s the point of it right? To come up with ideas and perspectives that other people didn’t see coming. And so the things that our children come up with can sometimes be incredible or beautiful, sometimes be shocking, sometimes be strange indeed. But what it should always be is encouraged.
