Crying it out

IMG_3581

It’s been three months since I last cried. Three months. I’ve never ever gone this long without crying and it feels so wrong. For the last three months I would say I’ve been in survival mode. You know how adrenaline kicks in when you’re expected to fight or flight? That’s how I’ve been living of late. A newborn baby, sleep … Read More

5 things I’ve changed since number 4!

erin and the kids

Well, it’s been three whole months since our beautiful fourth bundle came bouncing into our world, making it entirely richer. Three months of life drastically changing, expanding, adapting, every single day. I’d like to say I’ve handled it all in my stride, but that would be a bold face lie. Some days have been extremely tough, others less so. But … Read More

The longest month of all

37 weeks pregnant

You know that saying that each month has roughly 30 days…except the last month of pregnancy which has approximately 4,567? Yep…I’m living it. I’m officially down to my final few weeks (3 to be exact) and to say I’m limping over the finish line would be an understatement. My body is achy, my mind is in overdrive and my mood, … 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

I’m a sleep failure

Eddie catching up on sleep

Hi, I’m Erin, and I’m a sleep failure. I am. Don’t try and convince me otherwise. You see I have a child, sometimes two children, who frequently wake during the night. They aren’t babies, so I can’t use that excuse. They are four years old and nearly six years old. For realz. You see, I am a failure. It wasn’t … Read More

I’m in denial…apparently

28 weeks pregnant

So in exactly 11 weeks and 4 days, my fourth baby is due and if it is anything like its brothers, it will be on time. Since its conception I have been doing everything in my power to pretend that life isn’t about to change dramatically…again. Well that’s according to every one in my life. We’ve moved house, we’ve moved … Read More

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

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

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
