TweetThe secret to a great night sleep for both Mom and baby is the right swaddle. Generally most newborns prefer to sleep in the comfort of a swaddle blanket or swaddle sack. As most of my readers should know I was expecting a baby girl in November, and thank you God she arrived safely on
TweetHello Baby Yeah you read right, baby number 3 is set to arrive on 5 November 2018 (still holding thumbs our Doc keeps to this date and does not decide to do our caesarian birth at 39 weeks because then hello October baby). While we are very excited I must admit this pregnancy took me
TweetSo what do you look for when selecting an infant seat? When it comes to investing in items for your kids it’s important to remember that all our needs are different. The items we choose are dependent on our lifestyle, our financial situations and what’s best for baby. What’s more important is that when selecting

My bit of advice when doing your kid’s room, stick to something timeless, and a theme that can grow with them through the stages and ages of their life because shits expensive.
For those Parents who have been on holiday this entire time, well done and eina to your budget. Constantly keeping the kids entertained can be financially challenging. But because I’m such a bargain hunter I’ve included Groupon links to some of these activities.
TweetWell hello there, I know its been a while since I’ve posted here but life has been keeping us extremely busy but thankfully most of us get a few days off this school holiday, YAY!

Let me take just a minute of your time
Many days I log onto my social media accounts and want to hurl with all the Moms and their perfect kids, and rocking Parenting like a Boss. In my household this is never the case.
High fives and fist bumps all round to the Moms who manage to keep a clean and tidy home, pack perfect lunches, make healthy home cooked meals, have no washing piling up, no dishes in the sink and manage to have well mannered and good behaved kids. You ladies are living the dream! All I want to know is HOW?
Lately, my home and routine has been a mess. Its chaotic and I cannot seem to get on top of things. My juggling act which I thought I had nailed is slowly starting to slip and I have no clue where to start in picking up the pieces. I’m not saying have a pity party with me, but just give me a moment to say it sucks and I’ll be ok.
Marriage / Parenting / Life / Work – We all have to deal with this, and you know what sometimes its HARD. My life is far from perfect, I’m just an ok’ish Mom doing the best I can. But I do take responsibility for some of the slack, I have definitely moved into a lazier / drained comfort zone.
I’m definitely hoping that my change in job from 1 May will assist in stabilizing our home environment. It will allow me to be just a few minutes drive from my boys and home, thus drastically decreasing my travelling time to and from work – score – means get home earlier and be able to do everything that needs to get home, like homework, cooking, cleaning, washing, and importantly spending much needed time with my family (and also do something to get active – serious need).
So that’s me, for now. Once I get a hold on everything and find my rhythm again I’m sure it will be better.
Please don’t feel neglected, I will be back with the blogging vengeance really soon.
