Our hero returns

A quick little post to shout to the online roof tops “HUBBY IS COMING HOME!” Let’s rewind shall we? My husband went to New York for work, filming and the like. He has been away for just over two weeks. The first week Malakai and I were fine, we had our routine, and my parents helped with Mali. But the second week we could all feel the stretch. Malakai became more emotional and sensitive, especially in the evenings, and he mostly wanted to hang out with my dad and brother… Read More

Unshakeable

It’s Sunday, Fathers Day and both of my boys have peaceful fallen asleep on the couch together. They both look so warm and peaceful on this rainy Wintery day – perfect snuggle weather .

Phew, what a ride with my ‘ride or die crew!’ We take YOLO very seriously in our… Read More

Oh hey Baby no 2

No mom I’m not pregnant! Although some days I feel pregnant, but that could be because of aging hormones , sleep deprivation and the blur that is life itself. With the constant going, doing, moving, being and embracing new seasons and new chapters, I find myself pondering on the thoughts of a future baby Ferguson no 2. I catch myself day dreaming, and thinking of what would it be like to have another baby. When I get lost in those moments of what if, I wake from it all feeling… Read More

Mothers day thoughts | Silver fox

Today we have the absolute honor of hearing from my hero, my mom, Kathy Stewart. Most of my friends refer to her as “Mama K”, as she has been a spiritual to mum too many over the years. She has been married for almost 35 years, and has skillfully parented somewhat semi functional awesome adults, and she is the best glammy granny in town! Make a cuppa, sit back, get comfy and enjoy! INTRODUCING THE SILVER FOX I fell hopelessly in love at the age of 18. Within 8 months, Louis… Read More
