IMG_8042

As my children get older, I’m realising one thing. As parents, our views of what is “play” can be very, very different.

When you have a bolter on your hands

crazy billy

I’m currently sporting a lovely case of chafe in my groin area…and I fully blame my two year old. Too much information? Or just the information you need when dealing with a two-nado. Because that’s what my darling Billy is. One whirlwind of a barrel of energy that uses every single opportunity in his life to run away from me. … Read More

This is the FOURTH time I’ve done the first trimester, and I wish I could say it has gotten easier. But, I can’t. This by far has been my worst “first trimester”. Ever!

Well then you would have to know that this secret I have been keeping has been very, very hard not to share. But now that I can, there really is no good reason to beat around the bush is … Read More

My interview with Mister Maker

When I was first told I would be interviewing Mister Maker, I was pretty excited. I mean in the world of pre-schoolers, he’s kind of the Taylor Swift, am I right? And I was so pleased when it turned out, he was just as nice, and equally as passionate about his craft (see what I did there?) as Tay-tay! So … Read More

Stress less parenting

kids on the dog bed

When people ask me “how I do it” with three children, under school age, home 90% of the time, I give the same answer; “I have extremely low standards.” They laugh and say, “no, really, how do you do it?” But my answer is the truth, and I’m here today to explain exactly what I mean. When I had Angus, … Read More
