A 100 days but already the parents of a child born on the 8 May would be justified in feeling nervous about her future. Since its re-election, the Conservative government has brought in a raft of policies that may profoundly affect their child's life.
On Sunday, the UK's foreign secretary Philip Hammond spoke candidly on the Calais situation, and more generally Europe's 'migrant crisis'. In a series of comments made in Singapore, he decried a situation where "Europe can't protect itself, preserve its standard of living and social infrastructure if it has to absorb millions of migrants from Africa."
The tone for single parent families was set by the government's decision to abandon the child poverty targets it had signed up to, and replace an internationally recognised measure of poverty with one its policy advisers have come up with.
Too many young people struggle to live up to their potential because of the situation they were born into. The government didn't create this problem, but some of the changes introduced in their first 100 days will make it harder to overcome.
Given the huge policy shifts that the Conservatives committed to in their manifesto on housing, it comes as no surprise that they have moved very quickly in a wide range of areas. Unfortunately, much of their output ranges between policies that could be termed 'fiddling while the UK burns' through to the outright disastrous.
While we may have abolished the death penalty in this country long ago, we remain involved in its continuing use around the world - and therefore responsible for doing what we can to bring it to an end. As a start, we need to see the Home Office open up a bit more - and the FCO think again about whether the best way to react to the abuses of our allies it to tip-toe around them.
We are now seeing how the Tories are using their power to reverse that trend with an old style Tory blend of private affluence and public squalor. This is the cost of losing. That is why we can't afford the luxury of long term opposition. We must decide we are going to win next time, and do what is best to achieve that.
Every year, three million children are exposed to second hand smoke in a car. And every week, 200 of these children are made so unwell that they have to visit their GP with health complaints that are entirely preventable.
Sadly, the Foreign Secretary's ill-informed and scaremongering remarks will probably have some effect. In their wake, it will be that bit harder for other politicians to behave more responsibly, more compassionately and with due respect for our international obligation to assist those fleeing persecution and conflict.
It all seems so cut and dried. Hundreds of families and Kids Company staff protest outside Downing Street, blessed briefly by the presence of the charity's founder, Camila Batmanghelidjh. Charity good; government bad. Kids Company failed because the government wouldn't bail it out. Damn those heartless bastards. The reality is so much more complicated.
So, "If you want to work hard and want to get on" in life, I am not too sure how Cameron is going to make that any easier for you than he did when he was first elected in 2010. The past '100 days of Blue' have showed me that, yet again, 'nothing much' has changed for young people and as many of our life prospects fall further, inequality will inevitably rise in our generation.
We are not talking about families going on expensive holidays, or buying the latest gadgets. We are simply talking about the basics - food on the table, clothes on your back and heat in the home.
Whenever David Cameron talks about the importance of climate action over the next few months, remember this is the guy who oversaw a government unnecessarily roll back much-needed policy. In politics, credibility is a difficult resource to reclaim once it's lost, as Cameron has learnt in Brussels. He may be about to learn that lesson again in Paris.
Before the independence referendum last year, promises were made for substantial new powers to be devolved to the Scottish Parliament, but these are not being delivered by David Cameron's government - so a key task for the SNP in the months ahead will be to hold him to account and ensure that Scotland is given the job-creating powers it badly needs.
Eight months after the Conservative's conference, came the Budget. A budget that promised to help working people. Yet, for me and millions of other low income working parents, instead of helping us, we are going to be struggling financially.
One hundred days of unbridled Conservatism is already a different beast to Coalition, with legislation like the European Union Referendum Bill and the Scotland Bill to prove it. But there's one policy that is giving me a sense of deja-vu - and it's hugely significant to millions of people.
