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”

Just tired of being Mom

I think I go through this “feeling” a lot, as a mother. As you know, I spend a lot of time with my kids, but there are days when I just can’t stand them. I’m not going to be diplomatic here – it’s my safe space and if you want to use my words against me, ever! God be with you! Continue reading “Just tired of being Mom”

Faith vs Fear – how do I even?

Ok, so I’m still slightly freaked out by all of the snatching, kidnapping, school letters and all round bad news about child abductions. Like I wrote about child safety we need to do our best to educate ourselves, and our kids, about being safe. But, can we really live our lives like this? constantly looking over our shoulders, one eye open and feel anxious? To this – I shout out, “NO!! No more!” Continue reading “Faith vs Fear – how do I even?”

Keeping my kids safe – 12 tips I use

I read a post the other day by Luchae on “My Spreadsheet Brain” about keeping our kids safe. I’ve been following her for a while, but this particular post really jumped out at me because it’s something I truly value as a mother and parent. Go and have a read about what she thought with regards to trafficking and stuff. Now, for those of you who know me personally – you know that my one fear that I’ve had to overcome is losing my kids to being trafficked or kidnapped.

Just because I homeschool – doesn’t make me “brave”

Today I’m having one of those mornings where it’s just extremely frustrating to be teaching my kids. So, as I am losing my mind and giving very loud, firm instructions to my one child – and all I can think of is the phrase I get from soooooooooo many parents when they hear that we homeschool, “you’re so brave, I don’t have the patience to do that”. Said with a tilt of the head and admiration across their faces…….. #facepalm Continue reading “Just because I homeschool – doesn’t make me “brave””
