My Version of “Knocked Up”

A year ago today I found out I was pregnant. This was very unplanned, as unplanned as that time when Princess Beatrice, Duke of York, cut open Ed Sheeran’s face with a sword while pretending to knight James Blunt at a party in her dad’s home in Windsor (yes, this actually happened).  In my heart of hearts I…

Scientifically Proven Ways to be Happy

I’m very excited to share this information from the course I am currently revising (MSc Behavioural Decision Science). The exam is this Thursday and then I am free! (marginally free, there is still a baby needing to be attended to and I go back to work in three weeks). Recently my reading assignments have been about happiness. In…

Raise Your Hand and Stand Like Superman

I am LITERALLY sick and tired. Like many of us parents say, I did not know what tired actually meant until I had the baby. It is never-ending. I still haven’t had a full nights sleep since the baby was born 4 months ago, and it is not looking like I will for a very long time. On…

I have quotes on my wall throughout the house. I have always put motivational, inspirational, humorous quotes on my wall since high school. They are a bit more “classy” or grown-up now. But never the less, they are quotes that make me feel motivated to do well in my career, or be more happy on a daily…

A couple weeks ago I went to Mothercare with my partner to get a baby sling. This was our super fabulous Sunday out! ; ) As we were leaving the store we ran into a woman who was very keen on little Bear. Cooing and awing at him. As we were walking in the same direction, we had a…

My Truth: Becoming a Mother

For the past 8 weeks I’ve been trying to piece this new Mum life together in my head like a mystery waiting to be solved. It’s been tough, and to be honest, there have been times where I thought I don’t want this. My emotions and ideas about being a Mum are all over the place. I’m…

Masturbate or Die

As the weekend approaches and many of you Mums are gearing up for a passionate night of …….sleeping, I thought I’d discuss a fairly relevant topic. Masturbation. Due to a baby coming out of my body, I have not been able to have sex for the past 7 weeks. That is some sort of record in my book. Do…
