Our birth story

So here’s some tea, Our birth story Funny thing I never thought to write about it because it was so fast that no one would want to hear about it. I’m not saying that in the form of bragging because if you’ve gone through childbirth you know what I mean, it’s just this story is not a chair gripping tale. My due date was the 12th of August 2017, I already knew she wasn’t going to stay in there until […]

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 […]

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, […]

Mom Fail Fridays – Give me boobie NOW!

So here’s some tea, Oops I did it again…. another fail. With a million things on my mind and trying to get everything done, I didn’t realize we’ve been out of the house for more than three hours. Olessia was yelling at me and to be honest it was making me more anxious to hurry up and finish. The yelling started to get a bit much, so I just assumed her teeth were bugging her and she needed comfort. As […]

Judgement free zone – Mommy shame

So here’s some tea, We’ve all dealt with some sort of mommy shade or shame, from the day we found out we were pregnant to the rearing of our little ones. It’s enviable, it will happen if you like it or not. Trust me I wish it wouldn’t happen. It would be nice if as parents, grandparents and damn well as human beings we can refrain from sticking our judgey nose in other people’s life choices. I’ve experienced shade throughout […]

Letter to my daughter- He’s the father I never had

Dear Olessia, One day you’ll be big enough to realize that your father would give you nothing less than the world. Since the day you were born a light has been lit in him that I’ve never seen before. I watched a man become a father. He fell in love with a girl and that girl was you. When you’re three, pull out a chair and invite him for tea parties. He’s been waiting for them ever since he found […]

Mom fail Fridays – they feed off our reactions

So here’s some tea, It’s mom fail Friday! You know what that means another little story or tidbit of a fail of mine. Children feed off of our reactions, if they hurt themselves they look to you to either cry more or stop entirely. We are our own worst enemies though, as parents we are on edge at all times. We’re keeping an eye out for any dangers lurking ahead. What we don’t realize is that our children mimic our […]

Postpartum body

So here’s some tea, If you aren’t a fan of TMI this is probably not a post for you! Just keeping it real here. This post is my appreciation for our postpartum bodies. Our bodies are beyond remarkable, we create life for Pete’s sake. I like to think of us as some underrated superheroes. Call us the life bringers, increasing the population one human at a time! Has a nice ring to it eh? But I doubt it would sell […]
