Get Your Grades Online, Mom!

*Collaborative Post

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!”

Don’t Stress New Mama, You’ve Got This!

The step into Motherhood is an exciting one, it’s what you’ve been waiting for, for 9 long months but what happens when the baby arrives and it’s not all warm cuddles and a cute sleeping bubba? It can be far harder than any of us imagined but as a new Mama we all just have to get on with it. However, you are NOT alone and even though you may feel all of these below, most of us are going through the exact same things. You may be able to relate to some of this… Continue reading “Don’t Stress New Mama, You’ve Got This!”

Being a Mum Without a Mum

Becoming a Mum was the one thing in life that I was always certain about. Having been brought up surrounded by strong females I was always confident of the fact that this was for me and that I would have the best support any girl could wish for…

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”

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 pregnancy was the same 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?

I didn’t want to do a fancy list for Mother’s Day saying buy this, buy that BUT I do want to highlight some of the amazing small businesses I have come across recently and the items that I have just fallen in love with.

The Differences Between a Three-Year-Old and a Two-Year-Old

As a first-time parent, it can be easy to get swept along with the milestone charts, the opinions of others, the ‘I did it this way’ advice and listening to a never-ending cycle of those magical words ‘it gets easier’. What many people fail to mention is that the newborn bit is actually the easiest part (in my personal opinion) – so straight away you are being led into a false sense of security that things will become easier. The terrible two’s are one of the most talked about phases yet these are not actually the worst that your child will go through. Just when you think you have come through that stage there is a whole new phase waiting for you… One which you are never prepared for and one which out tantrums any 2-year-old meltdown any day. Yes, it is the threenager. Not only are these children more stroppy, but they are also much bigger and have a better understanding of everything around them and this is where the problems lie!
