My eldest daughter turns 8 this week. Her birthdays usually last as least a week and tend to cost me a small fortune. I’m sure this is because it’s so close to Christmas and I spend each December making this up to her with more birthday celebrations and presents than strictly necessary. She is really growing up though and it’s not just that she loves JLS and Miley Cyrus but that she has been dry at night for the last 2 weeks. I’m not sure how it happened – we had tried everything over the past few years, finally resorting to medication from the doctor. This ran out and I hadn’t been organised enough to get a repeat prescription and she tried without and was dry that night, and the next night and the next. Great for her as she can go on sleepovers without worrying and less washing for me so fantastic news all round.
