What If Tomorrow is Too Late?

Inspiration is my new drug. It’s really cool, it’s just this breathtaking feeling that pops up out of nowhere and you’re like, “Damn that’s such a good idea.” Sometimes it makes you stay up all night thinking about it, or distracts you from your work or a conversation with your friend. But it’s worth it.…

To All The Baby Haters Out There

  There’s no doubt about it, my son is apart of my life. I wake up, he’s there, I get home from work, he’s there, I go to sleep, he’s there.  It’s bound to happen. I’m going to put up a picture, or three, of him on Facebook. Deal with it.  I have to deal…

Did Someone Say Sleep?

I’m at the end of my rope. I can’t take the night wakings anymore, it’s at least 2 wakings and at most 7 wakings, and an early 7:30am start at work. Sometimes I look at my photos and think, “Damn I look like I have been punched in the face!” Bags galore. I want my brain…

Why Mums in 2016 are so Effing Stressed Out

Sometimes I wish we were village people. Eat. Sleep. Play. Repeat. It’s so much more simple. We wouldn’t be judged for breastfeeding. We wouldn’t have to have a schedule. We wouldn’t have to worry about money. Mostly just food and babies. Life in this day and age is hard. The people are difficult. The relationships…

How I have NOT Lost Any Baby Belly Fat

It’s been eight months since THE BIRTH and I have gone to three spinning classes and I have done one run (aka jogging at a leisurely pace). I literally have one hour a day where I could either GYM IT or do other things like….blog, catch up on social media, whatsapp my friends, take a poo, finish…

Does Bear Care? The #ToyTest

This is the toy test on my new series called “Does Bear Care?”  Babies always seem to be interested in what you are doing on your laptop. But are they really interested in your laptop or are they only interested in what you are doing? To test this we have put a baby laptop in front of Bear and…
