21 (+1) Inspiring Women

I looked forward to the Kids Emporium event for ages – which I loved because there was loads of notice to make sure I could attend. I was mostly excited as I knew I would be in the company of some of the most incredible women I know. But also, come on – it was […]

Anybody else get really mad when their kid gets sick?

Does anybody else get really really mad when their child gets sick? I do. Like really really vein in the forehead throbbing hulk out mad? And the worst part? There’s nobody to be mad at!

Drowning in Motherhood

Motherhood has been an uphill battle for me for a while now. I have been sharing little explosions of truth on Instagram and Facebook the past month, but I haven’t been able to share it here. I am not quite sure why. I couldn’t even bring myself to write a Mother’s Day post, because I […]

Have you heard of Umatie?

When I posted a million years ago, I mentioned that I was trying out Umatie baby and kids food. The fact that my toddler is embracing the terrible twos with every iota of her little being and refusing to eat pretty much anything, means that this review was delayed. By a lot.

A Love Letter to my Husband

I have loved you every moment of the last 10 years. Some of those moments have been hard, some of them have been filled with fighting, some with hurt; but every one of them has been filled with love. People have asked why I tend to call you “Husband” instead of using your name or […]

Cleaning House – SweepSouth Review

Most of you know I have had a very rough few weeks. With Miss C being sick and then me being sick and then the huge backlog of work that results from being sick, plus the endless public holidays – these are NOT welcome when you run your own businesses – and C’s bizarre behaviour […]

A note before I say goodnight

Hi lovelies. It has been a bad week. Our angel has yet another school bug, work is hectic, my big project has had to be paused this week with everything else going on, I am behind on everything. So I thought I would leave you a quick note before I pull the covers over my […]

5 Tips to head off nasty school germs

Why is your kid always sick? Seriously. That question sounds so loaded to me. I get super defensive instantly, cue mom guilt. Because even though I know the answer is school germs, I still feel helpless and like I should be doing something more to keep her well.

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse birthday party

As the entire Interwebs knows, it was my baby’s second birthday last month!! How even?! Last year I shared Charly’s first birthday party post after the first birthday post, so I decided to split these up too with her birthday post first and the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse party post next. I did not expect it […]

Where we are at 08.03.16

Hi lovelies! Sorry for disappearing on you! I still have SO much to write and share with you all, but this past two weeks has been a little bit crazy. So, where did I go? Not too far sadly – man, I could REALLY use a holiday! This is where we are at right now…

My Favourite Things – The Book Owl

Hello lovelies! After my recent rant, I thought you might need something a little lighter. Although I do review some amazing products and services when we do our giveaways, some things just really take my breath away and I feel that those things deserve a special place here. And so I created this little section […]

Is the alternative my child dying?

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) […]

Where we’re at 21.02.16

This past week was so full and so empty of sleep, it all feels a little distant and full of blank spaces. But I feel like we need an update on where we’re at right now so you don’t all forget me! The next two weeks will be full of posts for you from My […]
