THINK! DON’T DRIVE TIRED!

http://metodosalargarpene.es/ebioer/4392 This was the sign (of the road sign variety rather than the miracle variety) that I saw when I was driving home a few nights ago. Delirium had obviously kicked in as I found myself laughing out loud on my own in the car (it’s the small things!). The authorities clearly don’t mean this to be aimed at parents of little humans, do they?!? If they do, perhaps they could throw in some additional free childcare for us tired…

IS EASTER THE NEW CHRISTMAS?

Christmas is a long distant memory, mothers’ day has past and we’re still enjoying the long-awaited (having arrived a couple of weeks’ later than last year) long weekend that is the Easter break. Backed onto a week with stepson number 2, we’ve (that is stepson number 2, the babies and I, Mr. High Heels’ would rather work than contend with the rest of the school-going world) enjoyed a trip to the cinema to see Beauty and the Beast (loved it!)…

BEING DRIVEN POTTY BY TOILET TRAINING?

It’s been 28 days since the 2-and-a-half-year-old decided (finally…am I allowed to say that!?!) he wanted to take a pee on the potty. I’m not sure if this is normal, but when he did, I celebrated! Ever the pushy mother (I know my faults) I was hell-bent on getting him toilet trained by 2-years old. I was determined not to potty-train but to toilet-train. So determined in fact, that I wouldn’t even entertain the prospect of potties. I even banned…

REFLECTIONS & RESOLUTIONS

I know, I know, every blogger is writing about new years’ resolutions. Although I’m not, not really anyway. I’ve never been a fan of new years’ resolutions. I’m more a ‘mid-year resolution’ kind of girl. Or a ‘I-need-to-make-change-now’ resolution. The crux of it is, I don’t believe that because it’s new year, you’ll make a resolution stick. So, I make the resolutions as I go. For example, in May 2016 I made a resolution that I would no longer iron…

ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A TWO YEAR OLD?

The answer in my case is a resounding no. As I found out, unceremoniously, alerted by my 2-year old this week. I am a lawyer. I would consider myself to be doing okay in the smarts-stakes. But in the switched-on mother stakes, I’m still ranking in the ‘not-quite caught up with the vibe’ arena. Had it not been for 2-year olds’ astonishing ingenuity this week, I would have still be labouring under the misapprehension of ranking a little higher than…

Self-care; self-indulgence or self-preservation?

I recently read a blog post by The Bright Mama about self-care. It intrigued me because I have always been very pro-self-care; I always, without fail, have my nails done, I’m rarely seen out of the house without my face on and I like to dress well whether I’m in jeans or dressed for work. […]
