While doing the research for this post, I reached out to a bunch of mothers, like myself, and I asked them what the budget for their nursery was. I got answers ranging from $1,500 to women who didn't have a budget at all, if they wanted it, they were buying it. My husband and I set out on a strict budget of $500 for our nursery. We weren't going over the top, we just needed the necessities.
You are probably thinking $500? That's the cost of a crib! Most of the time, yes. I did a lot…Continue

One of the things I have deliberately decided to improve on is communication with my children. My 8 year old daughter often used to tell me, ‘Mum you’re not listening’ and this went on for a while until I made a decision to change it. More often than not, as parents, and especially Moms, we’re too busy multi-tasking and trying to finish up on this or that and rarely do we give attention to one thing. But I have realised the more we avoid proper communication with our children, the bigger the…Continue

School is starting tomorrow and it is seriously bumming me out. I know I should be happy for my son and on some level I am, but he is growing up so fast and I can't stop it. I look at him and take snapshots of each stage in my mind with hopes of remembering each moment, but with our busy overwhelming lives, it is hard to be in the…Continue

Reminiscing about my childhood is easy to do considering all of the greats memories I get to remember and share with others. It is because of my great memories that I want to be sure to pass the same feeling and memories on to my children. Passing down family traditions is something I want my children to not only enjoy, but I want the traditions to mean equally as much to them, as they do to me. I want to create memories for a lifetime, and ultimately they pass the traditions down to their…Continue

"I can’t understand you. Can you use your words?” I think we are guilty of saying everything on this gut-busting video! What phrases have you used from this parenting meme?

The joys of motherhood! I now have a one-year-old (actually 13 month old to be exact, but hey, who's counting?) and if you have a young child or have ever had a young child, then you know how they can push your buttons sometimes. That is exactly what my daughter has been doing lately!
Now, she has been walking since she was about 11 months old, which was something I never expected. I wanted her to remain immobile (at least partially) for a little while longer, but she had other plans.…Continue

It’s no secret that Caitlyn Jenner (formally known as Bruce Jenner) is under the spotlight for the major changes she’s recently made to her life. It’s all over social media that “she’s courageous”, “she’s brave”, “she’s beautiful” … then there are the other posts about how she mutilated her body, she went against God’s laws, etc.. This isn’t another Jenner post (there are more than enough of those floating around), rather it’s a post…Continue
As I watch my son go off to school, there is a part of me that is dying a little bit knowing that I can’t protect him the way I used to. My heart would ache thinking about him being picked on in the playground, and not being there to defend him. I would think back to when I was growing up and…Continue
