Where to begin even?! Life right now is such a weird mix of emotions and just stuff. Eloquent hey? Best I try that again…
I have been very scarce here of late and I am sorry. I am missing writing and sharing, but my heart and all my attention has been focused on putting together a national car seat awareness campaign for South Africa called #CarseatFullstop.
I am having one of those days where I wish I was anywhere but here, do you know what I mean?
Being who I am (not understanding the point of judging other people), the whole “mommy wars” debate generally annoys me. You do what you do, if you believe it’s best for your child. Of course I have opinions on these things… But I don’t feel like there is any need for me “share” (aggressively push) […]
I made it all up. What, you ask? Well all of it. Who I am. What I do. Where I’m at. I made it all up.
Since last week, mommies all over South Africa have watched their babies head off to their first day of school, with tears in our throats and big smiles plastered on our faces. I think the tears are there whether it is the first day of playschool, nursery school, preschool, pre-primary, primary school, high school or […]
Having my mom hospitalised for 8 days has had a massive impact on me emotionally. That may seem obvious to most people, but it really brought to the fore for me the incredibly special relationship I have with my mom.
With 2015 officially firmly in the rearview mirror, and 2016 already 6 days in; I thought I should do a little roundup of where we were and where we are heading. My focus for 2016 is on growth in all areas, but first let’s have a look at all that 2015 had to offer and […]
You know how I work super hard? And how I am always working on 30 things at once? Well, I stopped. I had no choice when my mom fell ill and I had no back up with Charly and Christmas came charging at us out of nowhere – seriously, did anybody else feel it flew […]
Some of you will know that my mom has been put in hospital with pneumonia and an allergic reaction to some kind of medication which they have yet to identify. Although I am fun to overflowing with emotions, I can’t find the words at the moment.
While the week before last was hard, it did nothing to prepare me for the past week. As most of you know, I was feeling particularly stressed about work; and with Monday being the 30th, I was preparing for a brutal week of wrapping up month end across all the businesses and then preparing for […]
The week that was, was really really hard. Charly has started doing this awful hysterical crying thing when she wakes from her naps that scare me half to death; work just seemed to pile higher and higher no matter how much I worked, bills are competing with that work pile, and I am facing Christmas […]
A little while ago, Maz from Caffeine and Fairydust (one of my all time favourite people and blogs), tagged me in this chain of “getting to know me” posts. I love reading these and apparently I love writing them too. Since there are more of you now than there were when I started this journey, […]
For those who missed it, when I say I bought a parenting magazine, I don’t mean at the shop; I mean I BOUGHT a parenting magazine! A few of you may have seen the news yesterday; I am officially the new owner and Editor in Chief of the Tums 2 Tots Online brand.
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.
