The HLP Diaries…Sink or Swim

Bemused Parent: Entry 5 “I’d like to sign up for extreme caving. It’ll be so cool – you get to wade and lie in cold water!” This week, Ada’s Dad and I are getting a new approach from our daughter to sport - she’s gone extreme. In the past few months she’s changed from utterly [...]

The HLP Diaries…It’s Christmas!

Bemused Parent: Entry 4 It’s the time of year when parents hold their breath in anticipation of their child’s brilliant star turn in the limelight. A scenario not entirely unlike The Three Kings follows. First, a sense of waiting - contemplating which performance will be chosen by teachers. Then eyeing up the potential “rivals” of [...]

The HLP Diaries…Call Me, Maybe?

Bemused Parent: Entry 3 We’re in the park for a playdate and the talk is all about mobile phones. Ada’s friend, Olivia, has just acquired her Dad’s old mobile, and yet again I’m being begged for one. “No, I’m not allowing it.

The HLP Diaries – “Everything is Awesome” ?

Lego Mum: Entry 1 Lego (other brick building systems are available) has always been one of those things I could take or leave. Eight-year-old Hugo on the other hand is obsessed with it – and when I say obsessed I mean OBSESSED!  Any place, anywhere, you will find Lego scattered; he just loves building and [...]

The HLP Diaries …and then there’s the books

Bemused Parent: Entry 1 I’ve decided to start this diary, so that in time I’ll be able to look back and see just how crazy life was in this household. Many parents I know seem to have “normal” lives, where they go to work, interact with the children until they go to bed at a [...]
