Welcome to my newest blog series, ‘Fess Up Friday’.

Each Friday I will be selecting one story from bloggers Worldwide confessing their most embarrassing moments and parent/ life fails. Lets turn parent guilt into a giggle and raise a smile for the weekend with our funniest and most ‘dig me a hole to crawl into’ real life stories.

September 2013 was a fairly busy time for me to say the least. E was only two weeks old whilst my first-born, J was about to start school for the very first time.

Welcome to another week of #FessUpFriday

This weeks #FessUpFriday instalment comes from Karen Dennis, a Mum, Step Mum and Grandparent from North Devon.
