    Good to hear, always hopeful to see a couple and their young baby attempt to stay together…agree, pinprick, it doesn’t matter (to me)…

    Better get used to it, Mandy, you say things like that on here, someone will pick it apart.

    I’m sorry Mandy. Your comment may seem innocuous, but it came across to me as being a negative comment towards how he looks, or that age is important.
