the fourth trimester- 3 images of mum and baby

The Fourth Trimester Has Arrived!

It feels a bit odd to be writing about the fourth trimester when I never actually got the chance to write about the third. I had wanted to document each trimester of my pregnancy and enjoy talking about it all but as William decided the third trimester wasn’t entirely needed I just jumped straight to our birth story instead!! 

So, the fourth trimester eh? (Yes, tri does mean three so we’ll just ignore that technicality) I will be honest, Continue reading “The Fourth Trimester Has Arrived!”

Get Your Grades Online, Mom!

As a Mother, your first concern is making sure that you’re being the best Mommy you can be, and that in itself is a full-time job. As wonderful a job as it is, it takes a lot of time away from doing other things. Some of you may find that because of this, you haven’t been able to get the job you want because you’ve missed on out getting the grades. Now, they say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks – but this saying is so incorrect! It’s never too late to go back to School. Continue reading “Get Your Grades Online, Mom!”

Unfortunately, fate would have other ideas. Having battled with Cancer for 15 years it finally took its hold over my Mum’s body and there was nothing more that could be done. I had watched this strong, Continue reading “Being a Mum Without a Mum”

my pregnancy, a different ball game the second time around

Why Pregnancy is a Whole New Ball Game The Second Time Around

Remember your first pregnancy? All those people telling you to take it easy? Never being able to lift anything bigger than a kettle without somebody jumping in? Being able to nap at any given moment and sleeping through the night? If only it was the same the second time around. Continue reading “Why Pregnancy is a Whole New Ball Game The Second Time Around”

You Know You’re a Stay at Home Mum when…

My life has changed considerably since becoming a stay at home Mum. Some may question my choice but I wouldn’t change any part of the last three years. Yeah, so my priorities are a far cry from what they were when I was employed and I may not be the hard-faced business person I once was when I worked in retail but I have a new focus and, for me, it is the most important one I have ever had. 

Of course, there are plenty times when Continue reading “You Know You’re a Stay at Home Mum when…”

What’s On My Mother’s Day List?
