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”
So it’s been a few weeks of running around and burying myself in getting our routine right again. Let’s just say that it’s not going well, but we are afloat and at least I know my kids are learning something every day. Anyway, let’s get to my title……… yes, this happened…… my 10 year literally served me metaphorical medicine and made me drink a massive lesson. Continue reading “My 10 year old just told me off……..”
Youth day and Father’s day came and went without a moment to actually breathe in and take in the moments.
Our youth day was filled with my oldest having a gymnastics competition. I spent the hours leading up to it, making her a leotard. (I can hear you saying, “you’re nuts!” – so did a lot of other mommies) I’m the type of person that when there’s money to be saved – I’m going to save it! I’ve spent the last few months trying to master the art of making leotards for my girls. The reason being, that when bought off the rack, those puppies are EXPENSIVE!!! It’s like buying a nike shoe for a 6 year old – who is more than likely going to blow through the thing in like 2 months…… this is my exact sentiment towards leotards. Continue reading “Youth Day + Father’s Day = Stressed out!”
Over the last few months, I’ve really been stumped with this whole “protecting your kids” online kind of vibe. It’s so scary to think there’s all of these sad, sick people out there that prey on innocent little people. I hate that I can’t just “take a pic” of my kids and freely share it with the world without thinking about how much of their body are they showing and who is in the pic with them (so that no one can photoshop themselves into or out of the pic).

Ok, so this “groove back” thing isn’t quite working as well as I thought it would. Ever since Jude was in hospital and we’ve had to readjust our schedule for his sake – I have come to realize that I really treasured certain parts of my day and now they’re all over the place because we’ve had to reshuffle. Continue reading “7 Things I need to cope as a Homeschooling Mom”
I’m sitting in front of my machine and my eyes are droopy and trying to wake up and my mind is swimming with information that needs to be processed. I still haven’t nailed this routine thing this year! And I am so annoyed with myself. Continue reading “I really need to reset!”
This last school holiday week has been insane! I can’t even explain to you how much I have messed up, forgotten and apologized. It’s been unnerving and I felt like I was coming undone. Thus the pic-Jude crying, me tired 🤦🏽♀️. It was completely unlike me and the situations weren’t even that hectic, but it was still enough to leave me sitting in a pool of self pity, with cups of tea trying to pull myself towards myself.
