Welcome to the second edition of the HIP project! In a world full of discouragement and bad news, this is the place to celebrate those everyday parenting heroes all around us. What is a HIP, you may ask? Not to worry, friend! All is explained in the original HIP post.

She loves Dancing On Ice, and she was happy to babble and talk away. Sitting there in her stripy pajamas, Rach was in her element..”
Lisa from Jelly Mom has a hilarious new plan to stop children’s bickering. “To encourage them you toss one child a cookie and ignore the other, hoping they will go at one another’s throats and provide you with a great excuse to get off the phone. Amazingly, they..”
