Liebster Award

This Messy Mama is so touched to have been included, and accepted, by so many parenting blogs out there. Almost 2 months into this new journey and the gorgeous Meagan, from The Mum Project, has nominated One Messy Mama for the Liebster Award.

The Liebster Award is a kind gesture from one blogger to another. A way in which we discover and celebrate new bloggers! I am asked 11 questions by another blogger and you (the reader) get to learn more about the person behind the posts! Enjoy…


1.What’s your Karaoke Song?

Haha! Oh I know… I am SO boring (or just old)!!! But I would have to go with “It’s Raining  Men” by the Weather Girls. After watching a Youtube clip of the original music video I can honestly say it’s oddly disturbing 🙂


2.What would you do if you were playing hooky for a day?

At this point in my life, this tired mama would indulge in a full body massage, mani, pedi and facial… There might be some champagne involved… OK, I lie, there WILL be champagne involved (cases of it).

3.You can only use one social network for the rest of your life! What is it and why?

It would definitely be INSTAGRAM, I am obsessed with photo’s… My poor children are always saying “cheese” whenever I move my phone in their direction.

4.Create your favourite #hashtag

Forgive the self-promotion, but it would have to be #onemessymama. However, if I were to be honest, I’d go with #it’swineo’clock

5.What is your biggest pet peeve?

Hearing people chew… Put down that apple! Don’t even dare opening that packet of chips!

6.If you had to compare your life to a movie, which one would it be and why?

Okay, I am going to cheat a little, and choose a series… By a long shot – FULL(ER) HOUSE!!! I am surrounded by funny, cute, annoying, exhausting, etc, etc… every day!

7.How many Jager bombs could you drink before having to go home?

I am going to plead the 5th! For those people who know me… You’re not allowed to comment 🙂

8.What is the best party you have ever been to?

Far too many to choose from, but a highlight was the MSC Sinfonia  – Tropical Party.

9.Marry, Make Love, Kill….George Clooney, Ryan Gosling or Denzel Washington?

Never gonna kill because that’s just wrong. One marriage is enough… and I’m too tired to make love!

10.What inspired you to start blogging?

I love writing, and I wanted to share my experiences in a non-advice-giving kind of way. The parenting “Hallelujah” moments, along with the epic fail moments!

11.What was your favourite book when you were a child?

Most definitely “Nancy Drew”. Those books lead to me majoring in Criminology for my Psychology studies… I always loved the idea of being a detective, understanding human behaviour, and using it to solve crimes… Oh wow, how life has changed!?


  3. Down Cottonwood Lane
  4. Momma Moose Diaries


1.What’s your funniest parenting fail?

2. What would your #hashtag for the TRUMP campaign be?

3. You have a dinner party for 5 guests, who are they?

4. What would you feed them, include the recipe?

5. Cappuccino or Irish Coffee?

6. Real men…. (Fill  in the blank)

7. Which 90’s sitcom is a perfect picture of your life?

8. What is your dream holiday destination and why?

9. If you could travel back in time, name the one historical event you would change and how?

10. How did you choose your blog name?

11. If you could hack any blog, which would it be?

Thanks for reading and finding out just a little bit more about this Messy Mama

With love
