Let’s talk about LBL

Modibodi

If you’ve had a baby…chances are at one point or another you’ve sneezed and wet yourself. If you haven’t, you are one of the lucky ones. And if you’re like me, and have had FOUR babies come out of your v-jay-jay…then hey, light bladder leakage is a given. That doesn’t mean, however, that it should be something you put up … Read More

Why having three kids, is harder than one!

Brothers

My dear husband said something to me the other day, that got me all fired up. We were discussing the imminent arrival of our fourth child, when he mentioned that someone had asked whether it was harder to have more than one child. His réponse? “Having three kids, is no different to having one.” That’s when I lost it. Let … Read More

The marathon of pregnancy

Tired pregnant lady!

I could never have been a marathon runner. I would have given up long before the finish line. In fact I have this memory of a sports carnival and being asked to fill in for someone in the long distance event. I agreed because I’m a yes person and instantly regretted it. About 400 metres in, I faked a rolled … Read More

So here I am. 30 weeks pregnant. Where on earth did the year go? I remember finding out I was pregnant and sharing the news with you all at 13 weeks, and now suddenly here we are, well and truly into the final trimester and dare I say it, onto the home stretch!

What about me?

Sick me

Recently I’ve been living in a house of sickness. Nothing life threatening, just your every day, run of the mill, head cold/cough/snot-fest. It did the rounds, with each child suffering through with the usual demanding-ness of a sick child. You know, lazing around on the couch and yelling for stuff 24/7. Then my husband got sick and I was all … Read More

Some very BIG news!

My new bub

You know I’m all about keeping it real and being 100 per cent honest with you at all times, don’t you? 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

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

Looking after yourself through pregnancy

Miracle months

This post is written by Libby Nuttall from Miracle Months When I was pregnant with my first son. Whoah! Morning sickness hit me like a tonne of bricks. Exercise quickly fell by the wayside. I then won a scholarship to travel around the UK for a month. Not a bit of exercise to be seen there either. By the time … Read More

Being sick with kids SUCKS

sick and tired

Right now I’m battling one hell of a sore throat and snuffly nose. Sounds like nothing a ‘normal’ person couldn’t handle, right? But I’m here to tell you I’m no normal person. You see, I am a person, for whom three little, one big and one hairy creature, relies on. The hairy one being the dog, if you might’ve needed … Read More
