Its our birthday!… Pt.3๐ŸŽˆ

And just like that, we turn 3… It feels like yesterday in which I was awake all night writing multiple posts that I had been originally sharing as singular facebook statuses to update friends and family. It was a long night and I cried alot, angrily typing on my old laptop that believe me had seen better days. I was nervous and excited but once I published the blog, I felt this wave of relief.

It’s been a busy and emotional 3 years, we’ve written 131 posts, been read in 64 countries, we have 3 social media pages (links below), our blog has been featured in online magazines & papers, physical magazines & newspapers, other people’s blogs and on social media. We’ve been approached by journalists for story pieces and most importantly we’ve been approached by other parents who just wanted advice and if you can remember that far back my main goal when I started this was “If one other parent who is worried about their child missing milestones, one relative worried about how their family will cope or one person who just doesn’t quite understand reads this and either feels less alone or more educated then I know I have done a wonderful thing” and I feel like we have more than achieved that goal but that doesn’t mean we will stop because everyday, a child misses a milestone, everyday a parent frantically googles why their child doesn’t make eye contact and I want to continue to help even if it is just to smile and say ‘you’re not alone’ or ‘it’s perfectly normal to feel that way’

There have been many ups and downs but sharing it with you all has made things so much easier and I am grateful to each and every one of our readers. You guys helped support me through depression, a pandemic, separation, divorce, financial worries, educational failures and so many more momentous events over the last 3 years and I am so very grateful.

WORLD DOM MAP

Here are the top 10 countries compared to those of 2021, it’s crazy to see countries that I have never visited, have no connection to and can only dream of going are tuning in to our posts despite me being in the UK and even then outside of Yorkshire I think people may struggle to understand me ๐Ÿคฃ

Changes over the year

I think the best way to end our little celebratory post is to share our most popular posts in the last 3 years. It’s the first time that our first ever post Friends in low places has been knocked out of the top five

and finally here is my favourite social media post of the year, it was hard to choose just one as our social pages often contain just small snippets of our lives, rants around social events, memes and reflections on the news. This was the first time I officially included Liam in a post but what an amazing reason to do so.
