Since Libby started school, I’ve felt like I’ve had very little quality time with her during the week. When I pick her up we’re always heading to a dance or drama class. Even on days when we come straight home, I’m rushing to get dinner ready or trying to get some work done while the girls play. So when we were asked if we wanted to go and see Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom live on stage, I jumped at the chance.

My children have always been quite good eaters. With a few exceptions, they tend to eat whatever I put in front of them at dinner time. In fact the only time they really struggle is when they’ve been eating sweets and junk food between meals. So there’s no problem then. Don’t feed them between meals and everything will be fine.

The snack dilemma The issue I have is that by mid afternoon when Lia gets up from a nap and Libby finishes school, they’re hungry. They’re also tired, we usually have somewhere else to go before home and it’s a…
