When Hubby’s away….

It’s amazing how easy it is to fall into a rutt and become totally bogged down with everyday life and the routine of the mundane. It’s even more crazy when my hubby is away and our little family unit just becomes this well oiled machine. 

Now don’t get me wrong, I completely and utterly love my husband and having him work from home and be in our lives. Continue reading “When Hubby’s away….”

Jude’s reaction to his new Car Seat #CarseatFullstop (when do I move my kid to the next size car seat?)

It’s time to get back into the rhythm of real life as we know it. I honestly don’t know about your kids, but mine seem to stand in fertiliser in winter and then the moment spring hits – shjoop, they’ve outgrown all of their winter stuff and yet it’s not cold enough to buy any new ones, so I just muscle through the season of Tom Sawyer (or hit the sales rack and make my kids look like the clothes are way too big for them and just keep them for next year)

Now, we tried a few months ago and that literally went down the toilet. (excuse the pun) I tried the various methods that I used with my two girls, and nothing seemed to stick.  Continue reading “What I’ve learned from Potty Training”

Losing a child, has me thinking 

Tuesday and Wednesday haven’t been good folks. Don’t get me wrong, my family is fine and everything went smoothly, but the days have been clouded (and still are) with the knowledge that one of the ladies in our homeschooling community lost her son tragically to swine flu. It was completely insane and hard to process that a kid, the same age as my oldest child, is just gone. Like that…… poof!  Continue reading “Losing a child, has me thinking “
