How Prepared Are You? Just In Case …

My husband and I love life. We like to be adventurous, have fun, really live our lives. We only get one go at it, so why not. My husband loves flying (small planes), riding his (very fast) motorbike, we go Zip-lining, and white-water rafting. We also simply drive on the road, and walk down the… Continue reading How Prepared Are You? Just In Case …

How to Repair Doll’s Hair

My girls can be quite rough with their toys. Majority of their dolls are stripped naked within hours of them being purchased and they then proceed to brush the doll's hair until it fluffs out and knots. I decided to try to 'help' restore these previous fashionistas to their former glory by attempting to repair… Continue reading How to Repair Doll’s Hair

When Your Kids Hurt Your Feelings

For the past 10 days I have been working on costumes for the girls. Their (Catholic) school celebrates Shrove Tuesday every year by having a fancy-dress day.

For the younger kids (pre-school), it's not supposed… Continue reading When Your Kids Hurt Your Feelings

The Lighter Side of Three

Yes, believe it or not, there is one. I got some lovely comments on my recent post: My Surprise Threenager. I have to say, most were other parents commiserating with me, sharing their experiences, and best wishes for the future. That's parenting sharing.  Then I got a comment from the lovely Nicole over at Tales from Mamaville.… Continue reading The Lighter Side of Three
