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. […]

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 […]

I’m not the same woman

So here’s some tea, I’m not the same woman… This isn’t a post to rant nor complain but to acknowledge the fact that the woman I once was is no longer. The childless, well rested and timid girl is long gone. When I look in the mirror I don’t see the same person who use to look back at me. Yes becoming a mother changes you in many physical ways but I want to talk about the changes I noticed […]

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) […]

Relationship after baby

You and your significant others love for each other is amplified with this new addition to your family but the hard truth is your relationship may experience some changes during the first year. After talking with a few girlfriends, we all have noticed our similar struggles when it […]

Mom Fail Fridays – She’ll do it without a diaper.

So here’s some tea, Oh diaper changes! Is it me or are they becoming worse the older your baby gets? I miss the days when my precious little baby would lay there awaiting for her bum to be changed. Now it’s like trying to tame a Tasmanian devil, who is flipping and squirming to get free. Sad to say but it has officially turned into a game and I’m always the loser. I’m convinced she’s like “Let’s see how frustrated […]

Showering is a luxury

So here’s some tea, Were you lucky enough to take a shower before dinner time? I envy you. After becoming a mother I didn’t realize how small things such as showering becomes a luxury. You may laugh but I’m serious certain things are not easy or possible to do with a little one around. When they are small enough to be in a bouncer, yes then you can shower but if they’re walking around and active like my little one, […]
