A Huggies Event

I am going to confess something that I really shouldn’t. I was like a kid on Christmas Eve on Friday. I know us bloggers are meant to be cool and take invites to events casually; but not me. I was sooooo flattered and felt like I had been picked first for some kind of sports […]

The Fear of Failure

I am a writer; a “creative”, if you will. I am never completely satisfied that I have done my best, given my all, achieved what I set out to achieve. I get so inside of the story I’m writing that I can’t look at it or read it objectively.

Are you a part of the Mamahood Village?

2 years ago on the 20th of July I wrote my first post here. I had the vision and the passion, but not the time or the energy, and I had no idea where to start. I tried for a while but after 3 months I admitted defeat, it was all too much for me, […]

Father’s Day Gifts ~ Winning at gift giving

I’ve mentioned before that gift giving is my love language. It’s why I ignore everybody’s attempts at setting gift limits, why my kid has a million things, why announcing the winner of my giveaways is my favourite day of the week and why I should technically have shares in Takealot.com when Christmas rolls around.

I only realised when I was preparing the blog for the makeover last month, that I was approaching my 100th post. It may not seem like much to some; but it symbolizes so much for me.

My Mommy Heart Broke

Last Friday another child intentionally hurt my baby girl for the first time; and a part of my heart just shattered as her face went from confusion to shock to pain and then crumpled as she fell back crying. I get an aching throb in my chest and my throat closes even remembering it and […]
