Smack, bang, game over

“I’m going to bed early tonight.” Hahahaha! It’s probably the funniest thing I’ve said all day, maybe all year, perhaps in the last decade too. I rarely go to bed early these days. I look at any time after the girls go to bed as “my time”. Yes, it means I get a little less […]

One step at a time

I want to do it. Can I do it? What are you doing? What’s that? Can I help? It’s all about helping mummy these days, which I love. Except when nine times out of ten it would be much quicker to do it myself. But it’s hard to say no to a very determined young […]

Pushing the limits

It’s been a crazy few days in our house. Okay maybe more like a crazy few weeks! I’d really like to use a stronger word than crazy but let’s just keep it PG rated for now. I’ve lost my shit more than once and I’m not proud of it! But sometimes counting to 10 just […]

A mother’s tale

“Mummy, mummy, mummy, mummy……” I’m not going to lie, I’m still loving hearing it. No doubt that will change one day. Just like there are days I love being a mum. And there are days I don’t. And as the cliched saying goes, I wouldn’t change a thing. Mind you, there are days I think […]

In their own time

“Slow down mummy”. That’s what I have to keep telling myself every time I think my daughter should be doing something she hasn’t quite achieved yet. Why is everyone in such a hurry for things to happen these days? Oh, that’s right as parents we’re competitive, always trying to outdo each other. Before you think […]

A change of dialogue

I’ve been known to drop a few swear words in my life. Okay so maybe more than a few. But I had some good teachers. There’s been many stories shared over the years. But one that sticks in my mind involves me sitting on the front fence and showing off my fine verbal skills to […]

Never a dull moment

From morning wake up to bedtime, I’m usually always on the go. I often wonder (when I have a spare minute) what I did before I was a mum. Oh that’s right I could take my time getting ready for the day, enjoyed sleeping in (remind me what it’s like again), watched an entire movie […]

Hitting the high note

A scream reverberates through the house. Nope no one has committed murder although you would think that’s what was happening. Instead my little “Miss Independent” is once again showing off her fine voice box. And I use the term “fine voice box” very loosely! Sometimes it’s a scream/squeal of excitement, which is more often than […]
