Why Can’t I Say ‘No’?

The countdown has begun to our school's annual 5-a-side Football tournament. It's huge! The school takes kids from 4 months old right up until the leave high school, Matric. The tournament is for all kids from grade RRR (age 3 - 4) until Matric (17 - 18 I think). So that means my eldest daughter… Continue reading Why Can’t I Say ‘No’?

3 Countries In 3 Days: Day 3

Day 3 dawned at Afriski Mountain Resort. We were all tired, but eager to get up and actually see the resort since we'd arrived at night and couldn't make out much. To say that it was cold is an understatement! Temperature = -1.5°C (That's MINUS 1.5 degrees celcius!) Elevation = 3054m above sea level. Location… Continue reading 3 Countries In 3 Days: Day 3

3 Countries in 3 Days: Day 1

My husband and I went away last week with our friends, on what can only be described as a fast paced epic adventure. My husband and his friend are avid 'bikers'. Think more 'respectful adventurers' rather than 'leathers and goatees'! They both ride BMW GS1200 Adventure bikes. They have all the safety kit and have… Continue reading 3 Countries in 3 Days: Day 1

Why My Girls’ Granny is the Best! 

First off ... they call her "Gaya". I don't know why, no one questions it, that's just her name. My mom could not wait to be a granny. Then along came my first child and her entire world was 'made'. The I 'gave' her another grandchild and so now I'm her favourite child! (Kidding Bear!)… Continue reading Why My Girls’ Granny is the Best!

Bounce Trampoline Park

Last Sunday we took the kids to Bounce at Menlyn Main Central Square in Pretoria. It is a trampoline park, and to say the girls had a ball is an understatement.

She's made from clay by the evil wizard 'Gargamel' who created her to help him find the smurfs. She… Continue reading Smurfs: The Lost Village

So. Tired.

This is a post about how just when you think you're finally winning at parenting your kids remind you that they do and always will, have the upper hand. It looks at how they use their very best methods to 'clip your wings' and bring you 'back down to earth'! We went up to Pretoria… Continue reading So. Tired.
