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...

I'm already suffering from Nappy brain. If I'm being completely honest, I guess it never really went away after Pocket! I'm thinking that once Jellybean arrives I will have it ten fold again. Amazing what a bit of sleep deprivation can do to ones concentration.I wanted to run an idea passed you lot. I will be a stay home Mum for about 18 months, I kid myself not that the first few months of it will mostly be a blur. So I was thinking that regular blogs may just become more of a half hearted attempt ending in my forehead falling asleep on the keyboard resulting in kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk or something like Read More...

The guilt of empty threats!
Posted 10:58 AM on Mon-23-Sep-2013
I've been dealing with a lot of tweeny, pre-teen, pre - hormonal behaviour lately!! Apparently it is an age and stage thing, but then also, I do not think I did myself any favors having 2 girls just short of 13 months apart!In some respects they are like twins, and in others worse, because they are in different developmental phases, as well as some overlapping phases ALL THE TIME!!! Because they are so close in age , there is also a lot of 'competition' going on, and off course the struggle to develop an individual identity.Miss A - is a real little mother! (third parent, if we don't reign her in!). She likes to help people, and guide, and nurture. She is a natural born l Read More...

Good moms have dirty ovens -part 2
Posted 2:02 PM on Mon-9-Sep-2013
(part 2)Following on from part 1.Thanks to the insistence of my husband, I went to see another GP at the same practice about my emotional well-being. I’d been seeing her some time with the kids, and she knew the stress I was under.  She was great to talk to and understood where I was coming from.Resigning didn’t really seem a viable option at the time, but we knew that I needed to get away from the toxic environment at work, as soon as possible, so I resigned. It has been 18 months since I walked out of my office. The sun, that I once wondered if it existed, did not fall from the sky, and the earth kept spinning.We had to cut back and give up on some thin Read More...

Curious Creatures - when what we cry differs from what we tolerate
Posted 1:54 PM on Sun-1-Sep-2013
So hubby and the kiddos really wanted to break in his Father's day togs at the local Leisure Centre. I grab my book and off we go, on arrival I settle myself on the benches and start people watching ( one of my favorite pass times!)Not long before I spot this 30 something mom to the right of me, long bottle blond extensions, emerald green nails. On her left hand ring finger she is sporting some or another bling green dress ring. She wears a black skimpy bikini top and a blue bathroom towel around her waist, typing away on her laptop, she occasionally peers over it at her kids splashing about.At some point her phone rings, she hold it up between her ring bearing finger and thumb - the ph Read More...

I'm writing this in red, because this afternoon & this evening I've been grumpy! I don't know why, maybe I'm tired, probably a few preggy hormones rumbling around, but good grief have I been snappy McSnap Snap.Ok, back to black, a bit hard to read the red on white! I haven't completely nutted off at anyone, but everything has been driving me crazy. I've kept it in mostly but the poor old Bloke (no bugger it, not poor old him, just him) copped it when he was only trying to make a suggestions. Whoops. It was one of those conversations where we were all sitting at the dinner table and Pocket & The Legend were harping on about something, and The Bloke and I Read More...
