Today our beautiful Iraina turns 8! Ok, give me a sec – I just have to pull myself together as I realise that my second born is 8 whole years old!! what is happening? Time is flying way too fast. Anyway, as promised a few months ago on Aislyn’s birthday – I am going to take the time to type out my daughter’s birth story. It’s drama free and not as long as Aislyn’s but it’s an absolute miracle how it all unfolded. It’s the kind of birth story that sounds a little too easy. Enjoy reading as I walk down memory lane and celebrate our beautiful Iraina. Continue reading “Happy 8th Birthday – Iraina’s birth story”

My kid got sick and it scared me. Continue reading “How our Scary moment turned Gold”
It’s been such a long time since I posted about homeschooling with my kids. Well, today I thought I would show you guys what it’s like to teach a little 2 year old at home. I took a video of what my little man gets up to when we get the structured time in. Iraina accompanied me in this one and we’re looking all spiffy in our pyjama’s and unbrushed hair.

So how did it go? I hear you ask. I know I had a fat rant at the beginning of the week about the girls and what to do with their discipline and stuff. Well, I sat them down on Monday night and just plainly explained that I was completely done with making reward charts, motivating with sweets, stars and money.

Last night as I was mentally getting ready for Monday, I must admit that I was completely demotivated and not ready for this day. I have to re-strategize disciplining my girls because nothing is working at the moment – everything has become a game and they have started being too kind to each other with their punishments. For example Continue reading “Monday has me rethinking discipline strategies for my kids”
