Feeling Judged – part of Mumlife

Mumlife, Feeling Judged

When I was a first time Mum I didn’t think I needed mum friends. I was overwhelmed with the thought of trying to make friends at the ripe age of 35. There was pressure from the world outside to socialise and to get out of the house. But I felt judged and didn’t want to expose myself to anymore criticism than what I already had been exposed to. Feeling judged and knowing that there were other people possibly seeing me as incompetent brought me down. And I allowed it to. Continue reading “Feeling Judged – part of Mumlife”

Finding Myself Again After Becoming a Mother

finding myself, motherhood

During my childhood and adolescent years I was surrounded by a lot of stronger personalities. I was the youngest of a large family. Our cultural background encouraged girls to have a calm and ladylike demeanor. Therefore my upbringing instigated a foundation for a timid and shy personality. I never actively tried finding myself and it didn’t occur until my late 20s. I was single with no prospects of the future I always dreamed of. But one day I woke up to Continue reading “Finding Myself Again After Becoming a Mother”

Questioning Myself, Can I Really Do This?

The past week has been one where I wish I could’ve changed so much. My mood has been awful. I have the determination to succeed still. But I’m not implementing it. My will to continue with this fitness journey is there but only just hanging by a thread. So what about motivation? It’s there, but certainly not as much as I know I need it to be. I’m questioning myself, can I really do this? I’m not proud to tell you right now that I’m experiencing a strong sense of self-doubt. Continue reading “Questioning Myself, Can I Really Do This?”

How Was Your Day Love?

how was your day, family life

Living as a one income family has its perks and perils. There was a time where it was the norm for the husband to be the sole bread winner. I remember the days where it was expected for a woman to be a housewife. Women stayed home to care for their babies and to be there when their older children arrived from school. Housewives have been portrayed in the media as pretty and well-groomed in the past. They always had perfect manners and greeted their husbands with; How was your day love? I mostly remember this in films such as Bewitched and Happy Days. Yes those are really old films but I loved Continue reading “How Was Your Day Love?”

Behaviour Problems, a Normal Part of Growing Up

behaviour problems, motherhood

Of late my boys have tested me with misbehaviour in a high frequency. In the last fortnight my eldest boy has been showing signs of becoming a lot more head strong than his mother. My younger baby bear is just a natural at having no thread of patience. From just a few months old he was named the ‘Hangry One’. The moments where he doesn’t get his own way he will slap the wall, the floor, the fridge, and even the dog if he just happens to be there. Sometimes I can’t help but chuckle even though I’m really over it. Behaviour problems are so much easier to deal with at home. My children are very well behaved when we are out and about. So much so it brings me to a point where I think people won’t believe me if I complain about tantrums at home.

As a mum of two now I look back often at the time when I had one baby bear. I remember people would always ask if he was my first. When my response was

Motherhood Melbourne – Friday Feature with Curvy Mummy

Motherhood Melbourne, Friday Feature

When you see the words Motherhood Melbourne what thoughts come to your mind? I first noticed the profile on Instagram during my daily #instastalking activity on Instagram. My first assumption was that this was some sort of social group sharing all things motherhood in social media. As a mum myself and originally from Melbourne I wanted to find out more. I started following, stalked some more on Facebook and liked the page. I even signed up to the awesome newsletter! Looking through the website I found so much useful information for mums, especially useful if you’re a mum from or near Melbourne. I noticed there was an event coming up – exclusive for mums only. Then, when I received the email about the tickets for the Hood Mama Event I
