Parenting is hard!

Having three kids has proved to be a gentle move from complete chaos to some sense of order – and yet at the same time feeling completely overwhelmed through the whole process. Why overwhelmed? I hear you asking – I bet you’re thinking that it just gets easier as they get older. Well I’d hate to leave you with the illusion that parenting just gets easier once they’re potty trained…… shame – you poor thing. (I say with tears in my eyes) Continue reading “Parenting is hard!”

She’s 11! What I’ve learned from her

Today is the day that our oldest daughter turns 11. You know how people say you forget the pain of birth and all that jazz? Well, they’re wrong. I remember it like it was yesterday. I wrote out her birth story last year and it was a massive hit! Why? I honestly don’t know? Anyway, this year I’m going to write down a few things that I’ve learned from my 11 year old in the last 11 years.

What’s happening with my Afro?

I’ve had a bit of time to do some comparisons with the products that I put on my hair and I think that I’ve come to a decent conclusion about my growing mane. I have low porosity hair….. that’s the one where it holds water for a while – but I think it’s in sections on my head. So the edges need more moisture and oils and stuff, but the middle to back of my head holds moisture like it’s never going to drink again. Continue reading “What’s happening with my Afro?”

Happy Birthday Tim Feder

Today is my husband’s birthday! He is now a well rounded 40! That’s just the weirdest thing to say. When we look at each other we always can’t believe we’re as old as we are. We used to look at these numbers and think that those were the beginning stages of getting old…….. well I get it now. 40 isn’t old and it sure isn’t the start of it. I think the term “old” has to be used so lightly now because it’s always so relative. Anyway, before I go down the insane rabbit hole of giving my opinion on age – let me gush over this man I call best friend and lover. Continue reading “Happy Birthday Tim Feder”

Heritage day -who am I? What am I passing on?

Every time this holiday comes up – I always, and I mean always look at my life and wonder about where I’ve come from. Who am I? What am I about? What’s my culture? Especially being a brown person in Cape Town now. Continue reading “Heritage day -who am I? What am I passing on?”

Homeschool feedback – September 2018

I haven’t shared about our homeschooling in a long time. Can you guess why? No – I haven’t done nothing! LOL. It’s basically because nothing fascinating or out of the ordinary has been happening.

I guess there was one thing that we changed because I was becoming a really lazy mom and only marking nearer the end of the week. I don’t know if you remember me instagramming about how I prep my kids’ work the night before and then they get to wake up as early as they want to without disturbing me and start their work day. Well, what happened is that we got our printer up and running again and I decided I would prep their work for the week. Yes, the whole week. Continue reading “Homeschool feedback – September 2018”

Freddy Jeans SA – My Review

About a month or so ago, I went to a “bloggers meetup” here, in Cape Town. If some of you don’t know what that is – I, as a blogger, buy a ticket to an organized get together, of like minded people (here being bloggers). We come together to network, learn about the business part of blogging and get exposed to new products and brands. Continue reading “Freddy Jeans SA – My Review”
