Overcoming Feelings of Un-Appreciation!

      8 Comments on Overcoming Feelings of Un-Appreciation!

Whether you just happened to stumble upon this post or have come here from my Letters Of Lace series. Know that you are in the company of a good friend! There are seasons in life when our acts of service go unnoticed, when our kindness is accepted but not appreciated, when “thank you” and “I’m grateful” are phrases we hardly ever hear…. Read more »

Dear Friend – With No Kids!

      51 Comments on Dear Friend – With No Kids!

A little while ago a very dear and special friend made a passing comment that she never read my blog because she wasn’t a mom. As human nature would have it, I was a tad offended. However, once I was able to get over my self pity and think a little deeper into why she made that comment, I was… Read more »

What people don’t tell you before you have baby number #2 – Guest Post – Angelique Ruzicka

This week’s guest post is written by Angelique Ruzicka, from www.mombabbles.com. Angelique is a married mom of 2; all the way from Cape Town, South Africa. The Second Child Syndrome I thought that having one child qualified me to have another with ease, and to handle the 3am feeds like a ninja teaching a six year old entry level kata moves….

Dethroned By My 3 Year Old…

      52 Comments on Dethroned By My 3 Year Old…

I’d like to think of myself as the Queen of my castle… Sitting on my throne; well in charge, super organised, and always in control. Not to mention immaculately dressed with make-up that would make the Kardashian sisters turn their heads. Something a little like this I guess… Perhaps there was a time when that was indeed the case… But… Read more »

Here I am, sitting with a cup of coffee at 4am (because that’s what moms do, right?). Not because of kids, this time. Just silly old insomnia. So, to keep my mind off the fact that my lack of sleep will come back to bite me in the ass at some point during a rather hectic day that lies ahead,… Read more »

I’ve Gone Mental ..

It’s been almost 5 years since I’ve slept through the night… So, if my maths is correct, the equation looks something like this: 5yrs of approx. 3hrs sleep/night (on average) = INSANITY! Feel free to double-check my maths, but I think that formula is pretty solid. I’VE GONE MENTAL! I thought it best that I share the symptoms, since my… Read more »

Admitting it, is hard!

      21 Comments on Admitting it, is hard!

Sitting here… trying to think of something to write… (cue crickets chirping!) I am at a complete loss for words, without inspiration, I have absolutely no energy, or enthusiasm to put words to paper. I remember when I started this blog 5 months ago, I promised myself I would always “say it like it is”, be honest with my readers,… Read more »

The Mother LOAD..

      1 Comment on The Mother LOAD..

Nobody ever said motherhood would be easy… In fact, if we each think back to our baby showers, I’m almost positive that some mothers had a little twinkle in their eye. They knew what was coming. Our glow and euphoric happiness keeping all thoughts of how our lives were about to change, at bay. The restful and relaxed demeanor that… Read more »
