I am who I am

I made a lot of mistakes as a mom. I mostly say the wrong things at the wrong time. I do not have an amazing figure or flat tummy, I am certainly not the most beautiful woman in the world, but I am me. I like food. Have more than enough curves and maybe more…

Becoming a Mom

Becoming a mom has changed my whole perspective and outlook on life. How I see the world now, through a different perspective. Seeing the world through a child’s eyes, changes the way you see everyone. To protect them at all costs, to look out for them and only wanting the best for them. After the…

Rare Gift

My daughter handed me her school progress report. Although it displayed a steady stream of positive check marks, there was one check mark standing dejectedly alone from the rest. “How am I doing, Mom?” my child asked with a level of maturity that did not match the small dishevelled person gazing up at me with…

Mother’s Day Brunch

For mother’s day my husband took me out for brunch. We went to our favourite place, I had the grilled salmon and my husband had the waffle with chicken. Our toddlers had a milkshake each. It was a rainy day but we loved going out for brunch.

To be a Stay at Home Mom is a Double Blessing

To juggle the schedules of three people is no easy task. It takes lots of strength that you didn’t know you had. To be a homemaker comes with it’s challenges. There are never a dull moment. In between the toddler meltdowns, the seperation anxiety from your baby and then love and attention for your husband…

Imperfectly Macarons

This is not a post about having the perfect bake, this is the opposite. In each kitchen we have moms striving to be more for their kids, to better themselves, to be the best version of themselves for their kids. To put their husband 1st as well, or partner, to squeeze in 5 minutes of…
