Bathing In Porridge Oats

By | May 21st, 2015|Parenting|4 Comments

I wanted to pass on this little piece of advice that a friend of mine gave to me recently. To give you a bit of background, Billy has very sensitive skin. Since he was a newborn he always reacted to any kind of product. I fell for the romantic marketing and bought the Johnsons products, which [...]

My Anxiety Medication

By | May 18th, 2015|Parenting|17 Comments

I've been anxious about writing this post. How's that for ironic? It's not exactly the most attractive topic to write about. Not that that bothers me in the slightest, but I suppose it's exposing yourself in a different way than you did before. Making yourself more vulnerable in a way. When I started this blog in March [...]

9 Months On The Outside

By | March 11th, 2015|9 months, breastfeeding, Parenting, update|4 Comments

It's that time again. Another month has passed and our little Billy Bear is 9 months old. God, there is really something about 9 months. It sounds punchy when I say it. It just sounds big. It's almost like the next biggest milestone before the big 1. I really genuinely cannot believe that my little [...]

Recipe : Baby/Toddler Cheesy Vegetable Fritters

I'm always on the look out for new and interesting foods to introduce Billy to. I love batch-cooking recipes and storing some of the portions in the freezer. It feels really good knowing what he is eating and knowing exactly what ingredients have gone in to the dish. I'm going to be sharing as many [...]

Feel The Fear And Vlog Anyway.

For months now I've been toying with the idea of vlogging. I personally love to watch different vlogs and Youtubers and can spend hours watching videos that on paper might sound utterly boring, but to those who's boat it floats, it's so entertaining and enjoyable. My favourite vlogger is most definitely Sprinkle Of Glitter. My [...]

Feed The Family

I'm on a quest to shake things up in the kitchen. I said in this post that I had come to the realization that I was starting to make the same dinners over and over again. I was putting little thought in to my menu planning and now I want that to change. Of course [...]

The dreaded cough is back. I could have actually (and may have) cried when I heard it coming back on little Billy this week. His eyes were red, his nose was dripping, he was sneezing and coughing every five minutes and he was bloody miserable. How could my little sweetheart be sick AGAIN? Our little [...]

When I Am A Mother I Will Never…

By | January 26th, 2015|breastfeeding, CIO, co sleeping, motherhood, Parenting, weaning|5 Comments

Never say never right? I found myself being really amused today thinking about the various things that I said that I would never do when I had a baby. Some were years ago, some were when I was pregnant, and some were even in the early days of Billy's newborn life. I think I would actually [...]

Just Go With It

I remember the week before I gave birth to my son Billy, I cleaned. The bathrooms, the kitchen, the floors, the skirting boards. It was extreme nesting and a bit obsessive to be fair. As my due day came and passed each day after felt like an eternity. I felt completely out of my comfort [...]
