ONLINE CATTINESS

SIGH, just the title alone makes me want to internally sigh. Because it’s obviously still a thing, and most likely will always be a thing, due to people – well being people.

Not because I don’t like conflict, I actually like and see value in HEALTHY conflict, but I tend to find general conflict (unnecessary drama) , fighting, to be a waste of time, and something that always does more harm than good. BUT YOH,… Read More

MIRROR MIRROR ON THE WALL

I sometimes catch myself looking at my reflection in the mirror, and find myself really observing and noting the physical changes (aka. the mom bod) of my body post birth. My body is still in recovery mode, as it’s only been a few weeks since giving birth.

THOUGHTS ON RAISING BOYS

ARE YOU DISAPPOINTED THAT YOU’RE HAVING ANOTHER BOY? OH NO, SHAME ANOTHER BOY! I HOPE THAT YOU WILL STILL TRY FOR A GIRL NEXT? WHAT DID YOU WANT BABY WISE? ARE YOU HAVING WHAT YOU WERE HOPING FOR? Just a few casual questions that I get asked on the regular whilst being pregnant for a second time round. Unfiltered questions get asked all the time, whether we are the ones asking them, or on the receiving end of them. Sometimes these questions may have no real negative intention behind them,… Read More
