I did zero research on how to go about weaning my toddler; I went purely from my gut, my mommy instinct if you will, and it backfired a bit here and there. Although my weaning journey is only just beginning, I have some advice that you can use (or not) from my own experience of […]
The past three weeks have been incredibly challenging, but I can officially say that Charlotte is day weaned. Yes, just day weaned. That may not seem like much to some, but it has felt like a huge thing for us in our little world. The tears and triumphs of weaning my toddler have been extreme; […]
Finding the perfect gift for Christmas is something I take very seriously and finding treasures like these makes me happier than I can possibly describe ~ and so begins All I want for Christmas is something handmade with love…
Merrrrrrry Christmas! Well, not quite, but I’m starting the Christmas spirit extra early this year to help you get ready for the season. I have been doing what I love best, searching the Interwebs for amazing people and brands that do what they do better than anybody else. And for the next two months, I […]
Instead of focusing on the tough week I’ve had (I will be reviewing that later once I have a bit of distance), I decided I am going to be sharing and celebrating the good things that I have been up to lately.
As I face the week ahead, my heart is heavy and there are tears in my throat. From tomorrow I start a slow journey to weaning my daughter and I feel shattered over it. As I lie here, breastfeeding my 20 month old to sleep at naptime for possibly the last time, I can’t help […]
Any of you who follow me on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter will have seen that I attended the Clicks Baby Event yesterday morning. You may also have picked up that I was having the BEST time.
So much is written about finding our value in saying no, and as somebody who struggles to say no to anything asked by others, I am so glad it is out there. Having said that, I have recently discovered there is incredible power in saying yes to the right things as well.
I have had a rough couple of months, I have been feeling a little overwhelmed by things and underwhelmed by people and struggling to catch up on all the things on my to do list. I have suffered a few disappointments and struggled with myself over my purpose outside of being a mommy. I have […]
I am still breastfeeding my 19 month old daughter. I never thought I would be, although I intended to give it my best try until she was 6 months old; I was just never as gung-ho on the whole breast is best movement as the usual toddler-breastfeeding mom. In fact, it always kind of creeped […]
I have “met” some amazing expecting mommies through this blog; I have gotten to interview them and ask them questions and answer their questions and support them and follow the journeys of those that have their own blogs. And there is one feeling that swells up out of them and every mommy I have ever […]
Last week I received a gift from Dove. I was flattered and I love their products and am a Dove user myself; but all I expected from them was something lovely which I would share on social media.
As most of you know, I have suddenly realised I am behind in the whole finding a school thing. I jumped hastily onto the bandwagon and started reading up on schools, getting suggestions and feedback from friends and family, and my head started spinning.
Most of you will have seen that I am the MOST excited to be a new featured blogger over at the BabyGroup blog.
This feels like the coldest winter we’ve ever had; but I’m pretty sure I say that every year. I actually love winter; I like having a legitimate reason to work in my pjs under piles of duvets and never leave the house. But omg the cold; not even blankets, heaters and hot water bottles are […]
