    #itsOK bloggers linky # 17

    A new week, a new link up!!! Thanks to everyone that joined our little group of linkers last week! Pop on over to Nicole of Tales from Mamaville to share your posts! What’s this linky about? In a sentence, it’s about cutting ourselves some slack as parents. We’ve all been there – that place where we feel we’re not doing our best as mums or dads, that we aren’t giving our 100 percent day in and day out. Where mom-guilt shrouds us every time we bottle-feed instead of breastfeed or give our toddlers chicken nuggets instead of a home-cooked-from-scratch meal. Where we are constantly playing catch-up instead of enjoying our…

    #itsOK bloggers linky – Week 16

    #ItsOK bloggers linky – Week 16 The sh*t schools make us do?? I am so sick and tired of having to get creative for my kids school! Seriously!

It must have been after a few glasses of wine… This all just seems so ridiculous, especially since I have 5 kids and each different kid has a different function almost each day of the week!

    Week 11 – The #itsok Linky

    We’re back!!! And yes, #itsok to be running haggard !! Jeepers, it feels like Christmas and New Year were just yesterday! I cannot believe that I am into week 2 of school already. My little girl started Grade R and my boys are now in Grade 2 and 3. How did that happen? My youngest daughter starts pre-school on Wednesday and my baby boy (who is 20 months) starts his baby class on Wednesday as well! The best part, they finish at 3 different times. 12:30, 13:30 and 14:00… I’m like a glorified taxi 🙂 That being said, its great to be back in routine! My kids are sleeping better…

    Week 10 – The #itsok Linky

    Yes, you read that right! I have joined the #itsok linky… Since moving back to South Africa, I have been trying to figure out a way forward in my blogging. It has been a long road, I won’t lie. I almost shut my entire blog down, mostly because of my frustration of it crashing TWICE!. Transitioning back into our home country was not as easy as I thought it would be. (Not to mention baby #5, who is now 18 months old) 🙂 But, here I am taking it one day at a time, trying to find my feet again. So, when Carly from Mom Of Two Little Girls, (a…
