My Picky Child: An Introduction

Mummy Confession: I was an overwhelmingly picky child when I was growing up. Now, I have a daughter who may be more picky than I ever was. Hi, my name is Amanda, and I’m a picky eater.

Mummy Confession: I often find myself unsure of the date, and now that’s even more difficult with a new year to remember!! Time seems to fly by, especially as a parent. Even so, sometimes we seem to wish those short moments away because of how difficult they may be at the time.
