Bringing up a child is full of little landmarks, signs that show how your wee one is growing up, bit by bit. One recent example of this with G was when, after previously having to help her down the slide at the playground in Uppermill, I let her do it herself and stood at the bottom to stop her flying off. It took a couple of goes but she quickly got the hang of it, so today we went with Mrs J so G could demonstrate to her mum.

These photos are pretty self-explanatory. G was too fast for the camera at the end, but Mrs J was there to catch her.
