The commercialism of Christmas and why I revel in it! 

I ❤ Christmas. I did as a kid, then went through a stage of teenage indifference, loved it again as an adult and now that I have my own kids I SUPERLOVE it!  I know that Christmas is about Jesus. I get that. But the tree, decorations and gifts have nothing to do with Christianity… Continue reading The commercialism of Christmas and why I revel in it!

Fairytale fails

I used to love fairytales. The lighthearted 'everything works out in the end' bedtime stories. That is, until I had kids of my own. Now I am reading the stories from my own childhood to my kids and I have mixed emotions at the lack of questions. It's good that I don't have to come… Continue reading Fairytale fails

Blogs I love : A Vodka Kind of Mom

An unexpected side effect of this blogging journey is that I have met and befriended some incredible women from all over the world. One of them is the incredibly relatable and also super hot (her beach pictures make me want to both cry and also do 50 sit ups...possibly at the same time 😂) Ashley Marsh.… Continue reading Blogs I love : A Vodka Kind of Mom

Mompreneur #6 : Cheryl Barnett

The morning that I met Cheryl was rough. I had been up since 5am with my little one who had woken twice that night for feeds she didn't need and I was exhausted. Ten minutes after chatting to Cheryl, I felt awake, invigorated and excited about life. She is the human version of a glass… Continue reading Mompreneur #6 : Cheryl Barnett

Finding my Mumtribe

I have always been a bit of a loner. If given a choice I would much rather be at home than do something social. I have a few very close friends that have been around for almost half my life and I have been quite content. Since having kids though, I feel as if I'm… Continue reading Finding my Mumtribe

The delicate business of raising a sensitive child

My eldest is a very sensitive child. She reads facial expression as well as tone and combines that with what a person is saying to come to her understanding. She comprehends concepts that we think are beyond her age until she mentions something in passing. She is wary of people until she gets to know… Continue reading The delicate business of raising a sensitive child

Some of the stupid things I said/thought before having kids

These are in no particular order: The kid will need to fit into our lifestyle, not the other way around (eye roll) Why would we need to eat at Spur? All we need is a feeding chair and we can eat at proper restaurants like we always do (I now have a Spur loyalty card)… Continue reading Some of the stupid things I said/thought before having kids

Some people never do. Tory is one of the lucky few who found her talent early on and has turned… Continue reading Mompreneur #5 : Victoria (Tory) Sutherland-Dadds
