I feel like all I do lately is complain about Matthew. I am no expert but I think he is just in that stage of defiance (gosh I hope it’s a stage). He is turning in 5 in January and he doesn’t listen. Like at all. Worst part? He’s found his ignore button. I got … Continue reading Is it a phase?
When was the last time you were at the hair salon? I can tell you that I haven’t been since before Ethan was born, probably around a year and half ago. That was, until last Saturday when I went to Style Bar in Tygervalley. My hair was long, scraggly, had enough split ends to resemble … Continue reading My Style Bar experience
I'm sitting at work, looking out the window at a cloudy Table Mountain, trying to think of something to write. My mind just keeps turning to the following, though: leaving work as soon as possible my hair appointment I have tomorrow (I can't wait, it's been more than a year since I've last been) thinking … Continue reading Prayers for a missing child
Cindy Alfino over at 3 Kids, 2 Dogs, 1 Old House recently blogged about a 5 Minute Face tutorial. As someone who only wears makeup to special occasions (read, weddings) I didn't pay any mind to it. I've never had to wear makeup to cover up blemishes, I've never had problem skin any time in my life, … Continue reading Trying out Cindy’s 5 Minute Face
Follow my blog with Bloglovin Matthew doesn’t want to eat food. He will ask for biscuits (he doesn’t eat chips so his savoury snack is Bakers Mini Cheddars), sweets, Oros, etc. The minute I give him food, he turns his nose up at it and refuses to eat. I have since taken to only giving … Continue reading Who needs food anyway?
We had an amazing first birthday party for Ethan on Saturday. The weather was simply beautiful for a winter's day in mid August. Everyone had loads of fun, I think I may have had the most fun though. Planning parties and doing the DIY's are my most favourite part. Ok, no more talking, here's the … Continue reading Party and photos
Ethan, today is your first birthday. It has been such a significant year for all of us. The day of your birth, although it wasn’t the happiest of births because of my doctor, it was one of my happiest moments. Hearing your cry for the first time a year ago brought a lump to my … Continue reading Ethan’s first birthday
Preparation for Ethan’s birthday party is coming along really well. I still have so much to do but I am super proud of everything I have done so far. Here’s some pics of the everything so far. I will post more after the party. The peg airplanes were made using some pegs and sucker sticks. … Continue reading Party prep and some DIY
How many 33 year olds do you know that do not have their drivers’ licence? Not many, I guess. Well, I am one of those people and not for lack of trying (well, not completely). I have had my learners’ licence 4 times now. I have gone to pass out once and was so traumatised … Continue reading Drivers Licence (or lack thereof)
How would you feel if your 1 year old is sick and you have to go to work? I know that I feel terrible and I feel like crying every 5 minutes. I can’t stop thinking about him and wondering how he’s doing. Let’s just backtrack a bit…. Firstly, ok Ethan is not yet a … Continue reading A sick baby and so much guilt
