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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Babies & their milestones

So here’s some tea, The years you spend focusing on yourself are long gone and the main event is the creature you created. Being a mom isn’t for the faint hearted, It’s more than just making sure everyone is clean and fed. You constantly worry about if your child is hitting their development milestones required for his or her age group. Trust me since the day Olessia was born, it has been on my mind constantly. Luckily Olessia was one […]

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 […]

Baby number two?

So here’s some tea, In the past few months I’ve had a serious fever, baby fever. It could be the fact my little one is growing up so fast and I want her to have a sibling. Or many of my mommy friends are about to pop out another one. Baby fomo, is that a thing? Many of them were trying and some came as a sweet surprise. It makes me wonder when it’s the right time for us to […]
