Dear every mom

The “every mom” is our sister, a friend, an acquaintance, or the mom that we still need to meet. The every mom is unique in her own right, and has to face her own battles (privately or publicly). Her heart is soft, yet burdened as she carries the weight of the world inside of her. She tries her best to lovingly carry and nurture her family, even when she may feel lost, afraid, or overwhelmed.

It’s so strange to me, because although I knew it was… Read More

Some people prefer to show a highlight reel of their lives online, whilst others show every facet and detail of their life online, and then there are some who… Read More

Long hair – don’t care

We all love having awkward conversations with strangers, especially when strangers feel the need to share their opinions on how we need to raise our kids. Or a personal new favourite of mine: when a stranger insists on me cutting my sons hair as a means of not letting him feel confused – gender wise. “YAY – so fun”, said no mom ever. I’ve been mulling over this topic of kid gender stereotypes for some time now,  and I wanted to share some of my personal views with you on… Read More
