Holy S Balls, where did this year go? I have spent the last week reflecting back (and getting rather emotional) on how amazingly perfect this last year has been to us. They weren't lying when they said children are the greatest gifts. But I won't...

I'd say that 70% of my parenting skills comes from the experience of having a sister when I was 10 years old. I was very observant of what my mom did and didn't do, the brands she used and why she used them. It was...

We've moved! I ended 2014 with the urge to move. Growing up, I moved around a lot and I always wanted to find that one home where my children would know as home and feel safe and comfort when they walked through the doors and into...

Childbirth educators, hospitals and specialist skincare brand Bio-Oil are joining hands to highlight the importance of childbirth education during Pregnancy Education Week this February. There will be free talks and various pregnancy-related events happening around the country. “A professional childbirth educator, with the experience and...

MY BABY STARTED WALKING!! That's all folks! Axl took his first step last Wednesday but by Friday he was doing it more frequently and followed the instruction, "walk to mom." He takes about 3 steps before laughing hysterically and losing his balance. I am not sure whether...

Firstly, a big happy new years to everyone. I cannot believe how quickly the year has passed by, I mean in less than 2 months we'll be celebrating Axl's first birthday! Incase you missed it, I did a little break down of 2014, the things...

In previous posts, I have spoken about what it was like living with divorced parents, and even spoke about how appreciative I am for the dad that didn't sign up for the gig. I have avoided speaking about my true feelings of my bio-dad, possibly...

I honestly have so much to get through, today but I was lying in bed thinking this morning. I have mentioned before how Darren and I have only ever discussed having one child and I only have a short time with Axl, so instead of...

I keep on wanting to take a minute to write about Axl's current milestones, but it is tough - every time I look away, he achieves something new. Two days before Axl turned 7 months, he decided to stand up. For awhile now, he has been...

WOWEE! Where has the year gone? I just read a scary tweet that there are only 100 days left of the year - what do you have planned for the last 100 days of 2014? I have been meaning to write a what's up and...

    I have been overwhelmingly busy, to say the least! But I really REALLY wanted to share some of what went down from my recent Mom's Meetup. This was the first of it's kind and something that I really do hope to continue doing in the...

My grandparents have been married for nearly 50 years. I take my hat off to them in every way. My gran acts like a kid when she sees my oups and says that she still gets flutterbys, when she sets her eyes on him. These...

This week has been one helluva hectic one - and it's only Tuesday!Axl continues to reach milestones left right and centre. He is now sitting on his own, running circles around me in his walking-ring, and his bottom two teeth are about to break through!...

Currently, my favourite saying is, "time is no friend of mine!" and each day, it seems that this statement is proven truer than the last. There is never enough hours to complete all that I have set out to do and it seems I am gasping...
