I have changed the name of my blog from that of ‘My Journey of as a Parent’, to that of ‘Raising JOE, My Journey as a Parent’. Raising JOE comes from my brilliant friend, BW, who pointed out to me just after giving birth to my 3rd, and last son, Emil, that the cumulative first initials of my 3 sons spells ‘JOE’. Leave it to BW to point this out to me. Yes, Julian, Oliver, Emil do spell J.O.E. I am always hoping that when I call ‘come on, JOE, lets go!’ I would hope that all 3 of these adorable beings would obey thy words of the mother and pay attention. Oh, well, we can certainly try and hold out hope, can’t we???!!
