Five years ago, almost to the day, as I sat cradling my newborn baby, a church leader asked me to think about running a toddler group. I almost laughed them out of the room. I do youthwork, not toddlers. I’m holding this tiny human being, feeling completely overwhelmed at what lies ahead of me and going to toddler groups is daunting enough, let alone running one. And yet, here I am, five years down the line, not only running a toddler group, but writing about them too!
