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

The magic of a second child

When I fell pregnant with my youngest I was a confusing mess of emotions which grew deeper and more tangled the closer I got to her birth. It was a combination of happiness, fear, excitement, regret and and about thirty other less dominant emotions.  Happiness: I desperately wanted a second child. Our family, while amazing,… Continue reading The magic of a second child

Mompreneur #4 : Issa Blanco

Issa is so well travelled and educated that I was actually quite intimidated by interviewing her. She has a degree in Journalism and two Masters degrees in Marketing and Public Relations respectively.

Under construction

Not too long ago I wrote a post about how desperately I needed a physical makeover. I may be a Stay At Home Mum but I am really tired of looking like the clichè. If you know me personally you know that I like to be organised and have a plan of attack. Since time is… Continue reading Under construction

The multiple personalities of Motherhood 

Let me preface this by saying that this post is meant to be lighthearted and does not in any way take away from the seriousness of actual mental illness. ***** I didn't realise that this was even a thing until recently. My daughter chewed off the top of her brand new water bottle because, kids.… Continue reading The multiple personalities of Motherhood

Hats off to single parents

Respect.  This shit is not easy.  After some comedic mishaps we ended up missing our flight and driving the seven hours to our best friends baby shower. (long story for another day) This gave us plenty of time to talk about random things and one of those was how difficult it must be to be… Continue reading Hats off to single parents
