Friendships after baby …

So here’s some tea, Friendships just like relationships go through their bumps and hurdles. One bump in particular is a baby bump. Once you start having babies your friendships change. Especially if your friends aren’t at the baby point in life yet. Which there isn’t anything wrong with that, it’s not for everyone. Plus everyone has their own path and journey in life. I, myself have never been a big partier. I would make excuses out of going out. Let’s […]

Mom Fail Fridays – Mombie life

So here’s some tea, As summer is ending; here comes autumn. It has to be my favourite time of the year. Everything starts to cool off with orange and red accents everywhere. Yes I’m basic but hand me a pumpkin spiced anything and I’m a happy girl. With my little one old enough to enjoy fall activities I’m beyond excited. What will her costume be? What should I be for Halloween? Maybe a zombie? Because that’s how I’m feeling nowadays. […]

Mom Fail Fridays – baby proofing

So here’s some tea, It’s mom fail Friday and a recent fail of mine is baby proofing. By baby proofing I mean I haven’t…. at all. Well we do have the plug covers on and the gate for the stairs. So technically we have the most important things done. Although I underestimated my daughter and where her stinky little fingers will go. Some women during their nesting phase of pregnancy will start their baby proofing then. Which you may be […]

The dreaded sleep regression.

So here’s some tea, One thing I didn’t know about becoming a mother was sleep regression. I thought once your child starts sleeping through the night you’re in the clear. Oh how I was wrong. In child infancy your little one will go through several sleep regressions. A sleep regression can be described as a period of time where your baby or toddler sleeping pattern will change abruptly. These changes can include waking up at night, skipping naps or ridiculously […]

Mom Fail Friday’s – Thursday night fever no Travolta

So here’s some tea, Moms aren’t perfect although we try so hard to be. I feel like a common mom failure we all come across is when our little ones get sick. I’ve been lucky enough to deal with only one cold within our first year, which was my fault when she was a few months old (head cold 🙁 ). So when a high fever arose I was completely taken back. I literally forgot everything I’ve known and read. […]

Mom Fail Fridays – cake smash fail

So here’s some tea, First, let’s just put it out there in the universe that I’m not the best baker in the world. To be honest I’m not even a decent one but I attempted to bake my daughters smash cake for her first birthday. My thoughts were she was just going to make a mess and not technically eat the damn thing so it doesn’t need to be extraordinary. (can you notice the look of disgust on her face) […]

Mom Fail Fridays – story time from other moms!

So here’s some tea, It’s Mom Fail Friday and instead of my fails this week I’m going to be posting a few stories some people have sent me! “ my son has fallen off the bed so many times that we put railings up, you would think that would stop him but no. It was a challenge he graciously accepted. We eventually had to put our bed on floor to refrain from anymore visits to the emergency.” ⁃ anonymous, mom […]

Women empowerment – next generation

So here’s some tea, I’m a girl mom, that phrase shouldn’t make you think of tutus and headbands (which I might add are super cute) but it should make you think of the next kick ass generation of women. As a mom of a little girl, I’m determined to teach her the significance and importance to raise your fellow females up. Sadly in many cultures the odds are stacked against us as women from the day we are born. I […]
