In case you missed it: Part 1 in the series – A Day in the Life of a Stay at Home Mum, Part 2 – A Day in the Life of a Work from Home Mum I have always been curious about home schooling so when Charlene agreed to give me a glimpse into her day I rubbed my hands together in glee(not an exaggeration). … Continue reading A Day in the Life of a Home Schooling Mum
I used to love fairytales. The lighthearted ‘everything works out in the end’ bedtime stories. That is, until I had kids of my own. Now I am reading the stories from my own childhood to my kids and I have mixed emotions at the lack of questions. It’s good that I don’t have to come up with creative answers but also bad that they are … Continue reading Fairytale fails
I have not been trendy at any point in my life. I’m pretty sure I thought I was once. ..but I was wrong. HOWEVER, I now have documented proof to show my girls (when they are teenagers and I’m the height of uncool), that there was a point in time when I was officially trending. A major character trait of mine is that I downplay … Continue reading I’m totes trending!!!

My husband was miserable seeing me cry every night from exhaustion and a baby who just wouldn’t stop … Continue reading Who am I?

Well this was a huge disappointment and entirely my own fault. I was so excited to know a new book was out and even though it’s the script for a screenplay I still could NOT wait. I finally got a chance to read it last night and man was I glum afterwards. I think it would be an amazing play to see but it should … Continue reading Managing expectations
