A Day in the Life of a Single Mum

If you are a parent then you know how rewarding and amazing an experience it is. You will also know how difficult it can be purely based on logistics and the admin of having someone depending on you for everything. By everything I mean meals, clothing, butt-wiping, transport, water, snacks, did I mention butt-wiping?, entertainment, mental and physical stimulation, doctor visits, vaccinations, dentist visits, etc … Continue reading A Day in the Life of a Single Mum

Thursday’s Top 10 – My most useful baby products

Fairytale fails

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 a few very close friends that have been around for almost half my life and I have been quite content. Since having kids though, I feel as if I’m not setting a very good example. While I don’t think … Continue reading Finding my Mumtribe

Some of the stupid things I said/thought before having kids

These are in no particular order: The kid will need to fit into our lifestyle, not the other way around (eye roll) Why would we need to eat at Spur? All we need is a feeding chair and we can eat at proper restaurants like we always do (I now have a Spur loyalty card) I’m going to get the baby into a routine as … Continue reading Some of the stupid things I said/thought before having kids

The magic of a second child

When I fell pregnant with my youngest I was a confusing mess of emotions which grew deeper and more tangled the closer I got to her birth.

Our family, while amazing, felt incomplete and I wanted a sibling or two for … Continue reading The magic of a second child

Mompreneur #4 : Issa Blanco

Issa is so well travelled and educated that I was actually quite intimidated by interviewing her. She has a degree in Journalism and two Masters degrees in Marketing and Public Relations respectively. Even with those accomplishments she is so down to earth and easy to talk to which makes sense since she is also a qualified counsellor and Reiki master. (See what I mean?? She’s … Continue reading Mompreneur #4 : Issa Blanco
