When the milkbar is closed

    I never thought I would feel so emotional about stopping breastfeeding. I always believed I would be ready when the time came, to put the maternity bras away and rediscover my pre-feeding wardrobe, but it hasn’t been the case.

My son weed on me today, all over me. It’s nothing new really, but the sad thing is I didn’t even bother changing my top this time. I even went and met my dad for coffee in said top, and told him, and he looked a tad disturbed. That’s how I roll now. I often look down at the brown … Read More

I’m going to admit, right off the bat, I’m feeling a tad left out. It’s pathetic and embarrassing, but it’s the truth. This is the second Christmas that I’ve sat on the sidelines watching the festivities unfold before me. Last year I was heavily pregnant for my work Christmas party, so didn’t attend. On Christmas day, Angus was 2 weeks … Read More

It’s party season but not as I know it…

Around this time every year, I get giddy with excitement about what’s ahead. Christmas parties, drinks with friends, plenty of shenanigans to be had by all. I’m not going to lie, I’m an all or nothing kind of gal. I dive into the party season head first. Bubbles are my kryptonite (see picture, and yes that is a pole I … Read More
