Why I Love Washing My Son’s Dirty Clothes

When my Eldest Little Man was younger, he was the “Move First, Think Second” kind of kid – as most little kids are.  And some big kids, come to think of it.  But anyway… Eldest Little Man was wild, energetic and loud. His imagination knew no boundaries.  He always had ripped knees, holey shoes and […]

5 Things I’ve Learnt Since I Opened Up About My PND

A couple weeks ago I finally shared a post about my journey with postnatal distress (PND).  Although it was hard and bloody scary to actually put it out there, I am so glad I did, because doing so was both healing and empowering.  I didn’t share for pity or to make others feel bad or […]

My journey with PND

I love being a mum.  I really do.  I just wanted to start with that, because at the very centre of my soul, I know this is where and who I’m meant to be; and I don’t want to portray anything differently.  I love my kids with every part of me. But sometimes… Sometimes I […]

LOVE (in real life)

Love is a wonderful thing. I consider myself so incredibly lucky to have found such a strong connection with someone, to have found my soul mate – in fact, before I met him, I didn’t actually “believe” in soul mates, so this meeting brought a huge shift in the way I viewed love. However, as […]

WHO AM I?

MUM GUILT: PART ONE

Piggy-backing on my post about the struggle – but super-importance – of being kind to yourself, I feel it’s equally as important to address another issue that mothers face more regularly than nits, grass stains, undie accidents, wet towels left on the floor, toilet audiences, and tantrums, combined. Mum guilt, I’m looking at you. Mum guilt […]

SOME DAYS JUST SUCK

Some days, I love being a mama. My eldest little man uses his manners without being asked, brings me cups of coffee (or wine on really good days) and is kind and helpful with his younger brother.  Littlest man is delightful and happy, and content playing independently for a while in between feeds, sleeps and […]

TINY ADVENTURES COUNT TOO

Earlier this week we decided to take the kids fishing… if you can call it that. Actually, we sacrificed hooks and softbait to the sea gods in exchange for a few bits of sea weed (which we respectfully and graciously returned). I think my first line got snagged about a minute after I cast it, […]
