My husband looked at the bench where I’d laid out the party bags for the friends who were coming along, and said “Oh is there only six kids coming?” Innocent enough question, no emphasis on… More
Do you ever stop and think, while you’re standing their yelling at your kids to stop slamming the door for the hundredth time in a row, shit – did the neighbours hear that? Or when your two toddlers are having simultaneous meltdowns, attempting to scream louder than the other, do you wonder what the neighbours must be thinking? It’s never really be on my mind, but today… If ever there was a day the neighbours would hear, it would be today. There was yelling, screaming, crying, slamming, throwing, pushing… You name it – it was happening at my house. Let me explain. Continue reading “Did the Neighbours Hear That?”
Phew it’s been a while! I’m a firm believer in not forcing myself to write blog post, so sorry guys if there’s massive gaps between posts. I like to write when I truly feel like writing. And this is one of those times.
For the past few years now I’ve decided against new year resolutions, mainly because I feel if I want to make a change in my life, why not just start any day of the week/year. And that’s exactly what I do. Continue reading “Goals, Resolutions, Plans for 2017”
Sometimes the stay-at-home-mum part of my life sucks. Not all the time, but sometimes it does. And lately it has been sucking more than usual, because my lovely, talkative three-year-old is really pushing the boundaries in what she says and does. She’s defiant, argumentative, non-listening, and has learned the word ‘whatever’. At three. Not cool at all.
Oh wow guys, I knew it was coming, but I didn’t actually realise it was today until I got the notification from WordPress. I officially started my blog one year ago today! My Facebook page was a wee bit later than this because for the first few months I was petrified of sharing my blog with anyone I knew, totally caught up wondering what the judgement of my peers would be. Vulnerability at its highest point! Continue reading “One Year of Blogging – What I’ve Learned”
When I first decided to start blogging, I’ll be honest there was a very small list of people who I actually followed. I would read articles and posts by the likes of Huffington Post Parents, Essential Baby and Scary Mommy of course, but I only had a few actual bloggers on my reading list. To be honest, it was simply because I didn’t know where to find them, and I didn’t realise so many of them existed. Continue reading “Monday Mentions – Happy Mum Happy Child”
Make sure you read all the way to the bottom for your chance to win in my Jord Wood Watch competition!
Seriously – there is never enough hours in the day. When I was a student, there was never enough hours because I was always trying to finish an assignment (whilst working full-time). When I was pregnant there wasn’t enough time because nine months zoomed past faster than I could organise a baby’s bedroom. When I gave birth to Maia, there wasn’t enough time to get to the hospital, hence her birth happening in my parents hallway! (You can read all about THAT story here) Continue reading “Give me More Time + Jord Wood Watch Competition!”
