The “Talk” with my kids : ‘The Naked Hug’

Just so you know, I’ve been wrestling between whether or not I should share these conversations with the World Wide Web. “Conversations” being with my two girls. Eventually Jude will join in but for now it’s just the two of them. Continue reading “The “Talk” with my kids : ‘The Naked Hug’”

My Afro Hair story

I feel like I’m on a bit of a “hair” wave these last few weeks. It’s been insane! First cutting my son’s cute little afro, and then discovering an amazing solution that just sorts all of my kids “neatness” issues out. Now, I’ve just made my appointment to have my hair cut later this week! Now, I’ve been doing the Brazilian Keratin treatment to make my awesome afro sleek and straight so that I could embrace my inner Kardahsian……. let’s just say I’m over it!

Strategy in case of a “Disaster”

I don’t know about you, but I have moments when I just strategise what I’d do should a tragedy happen. Have you ever done that? Now, don’t get me wrong – it’s not in a “fear the worst” kind of way – it’s more like, “let’s just have a plan in case” kind of way. Now, before you think I’ve got some sort of problem that I’m trying to work through – I’m actually wanting to actually do what I’ve always wanted to do because of my “strategy plan”.

Good morning. (Imagine a yawn and a gentle rub of my eyes) Mondays are what they are – aren’t they? So, let me start this week with something that was incredibly exciting for me – as a mom – that happened last week. I bet whatever you’re thinking, you’re probably wrong 😀 This is when I really wish there was a way for me to make you wait, and I could insert like dramatic music and stuff…….. a video log might have been better – ok! Stop it! I’m losing focus.

Jude’s first hair cut with clippers

I’ve been meaning to get this video up onto the interweb but I really wanted to have the intro attached to it as well. You know – to make it all authentic and “real” youtuby.

So, here we have it. I decided a few weeks ago that I’d had enough of trying to maintain my son’s afro and forever worry about how to get a comb or brush through the dreadlock growing on the back of his head. Continue reading “Jude’s first hair cut with clippers”

#metoo – How do I make a difference?

I woke up this morning and scrolled through my facebook (as most of us do before rolling out of bed) and I noticed the hashtag #metoo has been imprinted on so many profiles, tweets and instagram pics. Ok, I know this world is sick – but wow! There are so many souls that have been scarred by self gratifying idiots. Continue reading “#metoo – How do I make a difference?”
