I've been on holiday for 2 weeks now.  I took the kids away with me after Easter to give my husband a bit of a break from the noise and chaos that is having young children.  When we got back home, he seemed pleased to see us and had done a few things around the place, which was great.  I had 3 days with my eldest to entertain her, and to bake cake for birthday parties etc.On Thursday he said he'd like to skip the party and I thought, okay no problem.  Roll on Saturday, and I knew he didn't get to bed til 4am due to computer games.  So I did my best to get the kids up and ready for the party and out the door without waking him.  I made good use of Read More...

Soo Tired
Posted 2:33 PM on Thu-24-Apr-2014
Wow its just as well its the school holidays and my kids are perfectly happy playing with their lego (they finally cleaned up the living room to get it back) and watching movies because i feel completely zapped of energy and would happily sleep for a year. I spent easter friday fidgety and ready to go do something...anything but as the weekend rolled on i relaxed more and more into the slow pace and enjoyed that my big girl could get the little one sorted with breakfast and entertain her until i was ready to get up, She's an awesome big sister despite her moments LOL.I think its going to be very hard for me to get back into the routine when back to school time rolls around, the kids wil Read More...

You're looking really slim
Posted 11:25 AM on Fri-14-Mar-2014
I do wonder sometimes if people have forgotten the pre-pregnancy Jo.I am naturally a skinny minnie (well apart from the annoying tummy bump). I was skinny before I was pregnant. Chicken legs, no boobs to speak of and of average height.Now, the only thing that has changed is that I have boobs. Yay for breast feeding - the only three times in my life where I've had to purchase bras of a non embarrasing size.I don't mind people commenting, but as I've never really had any weight issues, I'm never quite sure as to what I'm supposed to say. I wasn't trying to lose weight, I was pregnant, and now I am not, thanks for noticing.The other thing I found a little funny was Read More...

Any Mums feeling pressure from friends and family to be more than what you are?
Posted 11:41 AM on Mon-3-Mar-2014
Do you sometimes feel like you need to be everything to everyone but never can be YOU for yourself? Do you feel family and friends dont understand that the slightest request for them could mean climbing A Mountain for you?  I often wonder how mums cope out there with daily pressures from life, people, expectations, duties, obligations and daily responsibilities?! What does your internal voice tell you? Do you feel as though you are screaming and no one is listening? Or that if you scream you seem weak?I know these are really heavy topics to bring up.. but we are all human and even the best of mums get stressed and overwhelmed and i think its always good to share with one another so we k Read More...

I love my hair!
Posted 11:17 AM on Sun-19-Jan-2014
I have had long long hair for quite a while, but my preference is always short hair. I grow it out mainly for hubby who likes it long. But with having had a baby, extended breast feeding and some nit treatment thrown in, my hair was looking quite bad. Broken, split and just so drab. I asked for a hair cut voucher for my birthday and yesterday I finally used it. I requested an angled bob, and off my hair came. It feels amazing! Light, healthy and more full. I'm so happy with it I just kept telling my friends ( who got me the voucher and watched the kids for me while I got it done) "I love my hair!" I really love my hair!! Here hee

My Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle
Posted 8:42 PM on Thu-28-Nov-2013
For those who have been following my journey to a healthier lifestyle will be aware that I have been on the Paleo way of life since July. It’s been a while since I did an update on my progress, so here goes.I have found over the last couple of weeks I have had to increase my water quite a bit. I was starting to suffer from headaches and my advice to my kids is always ‘Drink more Water” so I thought I better follow my own advice and drink more…water that is! I have started to have a glass of warm lemon water each morning with my breakfast and coffee and a peppermint tea early evening. It has all helped greatly.In terms of weight loss, I never really started doing t Read More...

That awkward moment when you realize you are middle-aged!
Posted 11:38 AM on Thu-7-Nov-2013
I have never been one to 'cling' on to my youth, or pretend I am younger than I am....not that I'm old ...I mean 32 years and 11 months isn't old is it? I remember a time when I thought it was ancient, but seriously it is not.... Yes it is not spring-chicken, jump out of bed at 6 am after you fell into it at 4 am, but it is not old....I've always thought with relative confidence, that I will be one of those people who age gracefully. Up until this point it was easy to convince myself of this. I mean I accepted I will NEVER EVER again fit into a size 12 no matter how much weight I lose, (because my hips actually shifted, and never moved back!)I accepted that due to st Read More...

Mother, you were right
Posted 9:06 AM on Tue-29-Oct-2013
Like any other (teenage) daughter, I used to look down on my mum for being 'nothing but a housewife'. I even recall telling her one day in a bitter argument, that what she knows means nothing without any paperwork to prove it - It sounds worse than I meant it. What I was trying to convey to my mother  was that as a housewife of 20 something years, without qualifications to back her talents, she wasn't marketable as an employee...... It doesn't make it sound better, I know! :( Anyway; getting back to my story. I used to think : "why? why? would someone offer up a job, a career, - to sit at home all day and do what? Maybe wipe some snotty noses but nothing else by Read More...

If I had my child to raise all over again
Posted 11:13 AM on Fri-18-Oct-2013
Bermabot blogs for The Magic of Play! If I had my child to raise over again,I'd finger paint more, and point the finger less.I'd do less correcting, and more connecting.I'd take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.I would care to know less, and know to care more.I'd take more hikes and fly more kites.I'd stop playing serious, and seriously play.I'd run through more fields, and gaze at more stars.I'd do more hugging, and less tugging.I would be firm less often, and affirm much more.I'd build self-esteem first, and the house later.I'd teach less about the love of power,And more about the power of love.It matters not whether my child is big

Setting up your home for learning
Posted 4:42 PM on Wed-25-Sep-2013
BubbeezMum blogs for The Magic of Play! This week I thought I would blog about setting up your home for learning as I am a BIG believer that one of the best ways children learn are from the environment they are surrounded in, as well as lots of language and time with your children in these spaces. We are lucky enough to have a playroom for the kids so I am able to set up an enriched learning environment (space) for the kids. We have put up gates into the kitchen and lounge, so the children are safe and have free movement in the playroom, dining area and lounge, I know they are safe and the only thing that is 'no touch' is the DVD player, so makes life easier than having to say no t Read More...
