When One Child Needs You More Than The Other

I am the proud mom of two little girls. Two amazing little girls who are as individual and unique as you ever did get. Not just in looks but in behaviour and character as well. My eldest daughter is an amazing child. She is clever, good at sports, kind, generous and she feels things very deeply. However, it is very apparent that she is very ‘needy’. Emotionally needy. So what do we do when one child needs you more than the other?

Lately I have found myself confiding in my youngest daughter to please help me when it comes to ‘managing’ my eldest. To put this into perspective, the youngest is 5 in two weeks time, and the eldest is 7 in about a months time. When I do this, I feel so guilty. #momguilt

I shouldn’t have to do that. She’s so little. But the fact is that I need her cooperation in order to actually achieve what is required. Continue reading “When One Child Needs You More Than The Other”


Kids Profile Test with Tall Trees Training

Have you ever considered doing a Kids Profile Test on your child? I hadn’t.

I mean, she’s MY child; no one can possibly know her better than I do, right?

I’m her mom. There’s nothing I don’t know about her.

How can a few questions by a stranger or computer possibly profile MY child better than I can?

Instagram RoundUp | April and May

Life has been so busy and so hectic the past few months that I completely missed doing my Instagram RoundUp post at the end of April, and now it’s already the end of May. What happened? The days are going by so quickly now. In a months time I will be waking up in my new home in the UK. I am trying not to think about it too much because then I might start to panic thinking about everything I need to do between now and then.

The last Instagram RoundUp I did was at the end of March. Instead of doing five per month and making this a really long post, I am just going to do the top three for April and the top three for May. So that’s the most liked posts for each month. So here goes …  Continue reading “Instagram RoundUp | April and May”

LOL Surprise Puzzle and Board Game + Giveaway

For those of you that have been following me for a while, you will know that my girls are LOL Surprise Doll crazy!!!

My eldest more so, but whatever she does, her Lil Sister follows suit. (See what I did there?) She has even made an entire flip file of colouring in pictures of LOL dolls and categorised them into Series 1, 2, and 3, and of course, don’t forget the Glitterati! The obsession is real.

I Did What Any Mommy Blogger Would Do

#GirlMomsMeetUp – Was It A Success?

A few months ago, although it feels like yesterday, Charlene, Chanene and I decided to organise an event that was the type of event that we, as moms of girls, would actually want to attend. We wanted it to be focused on us as mothers, and our girls too. We also wanted to learn, discover and explore the market specifically targeting little girls between the ages of 5 and 10 years old. The #GirlMomsMeetUp was formed! You can read more about how this whole concept came about here.

Who Was There?

Brilliant Blogger Award

Brilliant Blogger Award

Last week I was nominated for the Brilliant Blogger Award by the lovely Annette from 3 Little Buttons! She has created these awards as a way of sharing the #bloglove. Just what every brilliant blogger needs! Thank you Annette!


The Brilliant Blogger Award is here to celebrate all the bloggers out there that make you go ‘WOW, Oooohhhh, and Aaahhhhhh’. It’s for the bloggers that make you feel all warm and fuzzy, the ones that make you read every word they have written, and for the ones that have you snorting out your morning coffee with all the giggles. The idea is to share a juicy dollop of #bloglove and nominate your favourite bloggers for a particular thing that you think they sparkle at. They are informal and loads of fun to join in with.
