Mom goggles

I have come to realise (rather to my dismay) that “mom goggles” are a thing. I have become more aware of when I am wearing them and how they sometimes distort (or delude) my reality, my parenting reality that is. Mom goggles show you something different, something fantastical that ends up blinding you from the cold heart truth, and it softens the potential blows and melt downs. MOM GOGGLE LIVING As parents we all believe without a doubt that our little people are our everything. Which means they are the… Read More

Angelina, Brad, Jennifer and the internet

What do you mean Ang & Brad are getting divorced ? The whole online world was in a spin yesterday.

Malakai became more emotional and sensitive, especially in the evenings, and he mostly wanted to hang out with my dad and brother… Read More

Brain Scans & Beach Waves

For most of you who may already know, will know that Malakai was having seizures relating to his brain. You can read a more in depth post about it over here. But for now I thought I would fast track from that last post and fill you in on the latest. POST SEIZURES As I mentioned in the previous post, Malakai has no recollection of the seizures. He thought he was in hospital for an “eina” (aka the drip) on his arm. He had his own room, with his own… Read More
