Random Act Of Kindness: An Important Lesson For My Girls!

When I was nominated by my friend and fellow mom blogger Jacqui from One Messy Mama who nominated me to pay it forward with a random act of kindness, there were many things I could have done to be kind to less fortunate people than myself, but there was only one that I kept coming back to.  Continue reading “Random Act Of Kindness: An Important Lesson For My Girls!”

My Saturday Gratitude Check-In: Choice

Choice is something that those of us who have the luxury of it, take for granted.

I don’t really want to dwell too much on this right now, suffice it to say that we are at a bit of a crossroads in life right now. We can either choose to take a huge leap of faith, or choose not to.  Continue reading “My Saturday Gratitude Check-In: Choice”

I Let Her Down, And I Didn’t Even Know!

Today I am tired. I am tired because I couldn’t sleep last night. The reason I couldn’t sleep last night was because I had a huge case of Mom Guilt!

My Saturday Gratitude Check-In: My Husband

Last week I decided to start a Saturday Gratitude Check-in series. It’s more of a reminder to myself that even though adulting, parenting and life in general is hard, we need to remind ourselves that there is always something to be grateful for. This week I am grateful for my husband.

You can check out last week’s post where I spoke out how I was grateful for early morning cuddles with my girls, because basically it means that I am loved by them, even if it’s usually too early in the morning to be awake!

Back to my husband. Don’t get me wrong, he is a demanding person with extremely high standards! I often joke that I must be the most perfect woman on the planet, because only the most perfect woman in the world would be good enough for him!

Are We Afraid Of Our Kids Being Bored

Are We Afraid To Let Our Kids Be Bored?

Why are we so afraid of letting our kids get bored?

This is the question a friend of mine asked me a few weeks ago, a question her father had asked of her. It got me thinking about the topic of keeping our children occupied and how we as parents seem to have become consumed with avoiding any situation where our kids might actually be bored.

Why is that? Continue reading “Are We Afraid To Let Our Kids Be Bored?”

I used to do this fortnightly but for this year I plan to only do them at the end of every month.

Without further ado, let’s get this show on the road!
