Eldest Eldest is lovely, She drives me crazy, Eldest is so funny, She is so sarcastic I want to poke her in the eye, Eldest is beautiful, She uses her pretty eyes to make my buy her more things, she owns all of the things, Eldest is smart, She uses her smarts to trick me into things I can no longer go back on, because I bloody agreed already. Arsehole. Eldest has manners, After she has given me a bullshit day, she pops out the ‘Sorry for today mommy, please forgive me mommy’, ‘Yes’ I reply. ‘Thank-you, but you know sometimes when you’re mad your face looks a bit too … [Read more…]
The past few weeks I’ve had this niggly feeling every time I’ve eaten meat, I never used to eat a lot of it anyway, but lately it seems to be all I’m eating. It really is too much. So I’ve made the decision to cut meat out of my diet for a while, I’m not saying I’m going to be perfect, I love Salmon & Chicken. I’m destined to fall to me knees in front of a Salmon and herb bagel. It will happen, and that is fine really. It is. As long as I know I’m making a difference to my children’s view on food. It’s grown with hard … [Read more…]
Now I had no idea what one of these was, at all. You’d think that being as Mr M is Vietnamese I would have some inkling of the skin variations in things such as birthmarks. Well I didn’t. Not until my midwife pointed it out to me about an hour ofter Mojo’s birth.

Mongolian Blue Spot. What is it? Blue, bluey-grey, blue-black, even deep brown spots on the back, buttocks, base of spine, … [Read more…]
I’m great because I’m funny I love how silly I am In the last few years I shed how I felt, angry and tired and became the Mom I wanted to be I am who I am because I looked around and chose not to be the same, sometimes in life you have to make a change, as women our lives are a constant sea of change, if I don’t like something and I can change it, I do. I’m as malleable as I can be now. My favourite time of the day is first thing in the morning, rain or shine sitting on my balcony relaxing waiting, quietly, listening … [Read more…]
Momma & Mojo the day after our homebirth. Something for Baby – This might be too obvious but breastmilk is for babies! I love this photo, Mojo is TT and in the end we ended up with some hefty nipple damage. We had a good run and I loved it while it lasted. So these few photos are special to me, this is one I’d like to share.
When I was younger, just into university I never wanted children, I saw them as life ending tiny people who would destroy all my hopes and dream. I was right. They ended my self absorbed, over indulgent life and gave me a new lense with which to focus. They destroyed all my hopes and dream, crushed them in to oblivion and gave me a new life, one in which every day was a challenge & exciting. I gained more from my children than they will probably ever gain from me. When I first felt pregnant, I was 1 day late. Just 1, and I knew. I had been careful, but … [Read more…]
