    Where am I in these pics?

    I’m so tired. Is it even possible to be this tired? I scroll through old photos on my phone, photos from like 5 years ago. My skin was plump and glowing. The bags under my eyes, ok they were still there, but they weren’t THIS dark. There were so many photos of me back then. Now, they’re far and few…

    Perhaps, motherhood is designed this way.

    Why is it that we can’t remember gazing up at our Mother’s face as a baby or young child, yet she can remember gazing down at us? Perhaps it is designed that way so that we don’t remember all the tears she cried over us. Becoming a Mother is an ongoing journey of love, delight, guilt, growth, blossoming, learning, unlearning,…

    What is it with this mom guilt?

    I’m not going to lie, my 3 year old is currently challenging me like I’ve never been challenged before. I consider myself a gentle parent, but these past few days… phew, I’ve had some low moments. What is it with this Mom guilt? Does it ever go away?

New Years eve 2014 was an emotional one. I was home alone with my little man who refused to be anywhere else but my chest. All my friends were…

    My Beautiful Caesar

    Our big boy has finally arrived. It was a long and tedious wait but I’m very glad we waited and he got to choose his own birthday. My gynae had my due date down for the 1st of August but baby only decided it was time on the 16th. To be honest I blame my very good friends over at…

    Almost there… pregnancy update

    My official due date was the 1st of August which has come and gone and baby seems to still be very happy inside my (rather large) tummy! Throughout my pregnancy I’ve been keeping a diary as well as lots of notes and links to all the different, wonderful and interesting articles and people that I have learnt from along the way,…
