MOTHERHOOD | BEHIND THE SCENES

Motherhood looks a little different to everyone. It may either look like a crazy nightmare, or it may look like pure perfection on the outside. One thing is for sure : Motherhood keeps you on your toes 24/7. I was at the GP a few weeks back to take my little 8 month bubs in as he wasn’t feeling well. The weekend before that GP visit I had this disgusting stomach bug, and was back at work on Monday and in full mom mode. Brooklyn got his meds, and then… Read More

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
