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 Favourite Things, to an awesome campaign I missed out on, to an Easter giveaway with one of my favourite brands, to one that might ruffle some feathers (but MAN I have a bee in my bonnet that needs to be let out), and also Charly’s birthday party post.

While the week before last was hard, it did nothing to prepare me for the past week.

I got my first event invitation as the Editor In Chief of Tums 2 Tots last week. While I’ve been to my fair share of great events for Pregnant in Cape Town, it was somehow different to go to the Jungle Oats breakfast as a magazine owner, editor and boss lady type. I was nervous and beyond excited and felt super proud putting on my name badge. I got one of the regular Tums 2 Tots writers, Leigh Geary (of The Mom Diaries fame) to attend with me, keeping me company and “representing” my brand (HOW grown up?!).
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.
