They say when you stop wanting and searching for that missing piece in your life it will just fall into your lap. Or arms, or hands, or basket…or whatever is suited for that little bit of something you long for. In a nutshell that’s how my first pregnancy came about. My second baby wasn’t easy to brew either. I was in my mid-thirties and trying to conceive, I became my own enemy with over doing the googling about the statistics.
My journey of trying to conceive wasn’t the smoothest of sailing. But one thing I kept reminding myself was that there are others in the same boat. And there

Brush her hair and do it up in cute styles every day. But this wish I had Continue reading “I’m a Mum of Boys and I’m Proud”
What is self-care and why is it so important? If you’re a mumma or a mum-to-be have you thought about it? Are you practicing self-care already or aren’t you? I hadn’t even thought about all of this until recently. In the past I may have done a few things here and there that could be classified as self-care. But when I became a mum the first time I let it all escape out the door.
Why do some of us care for ourselves during pregnancy so much, and then not when we finally have our baby in our arms? That’s what I did. I put my baby first

Before I used to worry about how people perceived me. I was always concerned with what first impressions I was giving. Now, by speaking about making mum friends, by letting other mums know that I didn’t find it easy, I

I seriously could not see past my duties as his Mother. It became everything to me. With any chance I could get I would research with my trusted Google search engine on my phone.
