Postpartum Hair Loss. The Tips.

Did you have thick lushious hair while pregnant? Yeah me neither. But it was decent to look at right? And now here we are, 7 months post baby, hair falling in clumps, bald patches and wierd baby hair. It’s hard enough surviving through the pregnancy, the labour, lack of sleep and your body going completely…

The Tired Weapy Hulk

I’m at my absolute wits end with these kids. Good Lord give me strength! So for the past week it’s just been virtual hell. Bubba is starting to nap for a shorter amount of time and therefore up to no good all day. He’s not eating properly and I came to find out his back…

Potty Training (First Attempts)

It has begun. Time to sowly start potty training Bubba coz it”s got to be better than fly kicks while changing diarrhoea nappies right? FML. Does this glamous job of dodging flying shit to the face, ever end? Nope. And now having to aim it into a non-face-like hole is every parents challenge, because obviously…

22 Texts you Shouldn’t Have to Send…

Saltymamas posted a hilarious blog post about the texts they’ve sent each other (read it here) and I can SO relate. As it’s the summer holidays, shit has got real! My brain is in overdrive, my clothes are on backwards, I laughcrydrink on cue and been eating cake everyday, just to numb the senses with…

Breastfeeding in Dubai

In case you didn’t know, it’s World Breastfeeding Week and as I’m currently breastfeeding Bambi on demand, let’s talk boobs. They hurt. They leak. They need pads. They cannot be de-attached (I tried). The milk is the best form of nutrition for your little one. But sometimes we can’t Effing do it! #realtalk I love…

6 Months into Motherhood (again)

Bambi is 6 months old today! We made it! Happy half a birthday sweetie!🎈 – a real excuse for me to whip up a cake in a mug with half a candle left from the toddler “tasting” the other half (because we do that now).. I can’t believe it. No really, I actually can’t. I’m…

Shopping at the Mall with 2 kids..

As if taking one child to the mall wasn’t hard enough, if like me, you chose to birth a second offspring (so the first one “isn’t lonely”), then congratulations.. Shopping for absolutely anything will never be the same. I have no idea why I do this to myself, brave the impossible because I already know…

A Letter to my Best Friend on her Wedding Day..

Shit. I can’t believe this day has come. Many talk about this day with their best friend since they were kids, always making wedding scrap books with delicate cut outs from the Princess magazines and always picturing the big fairy tale wedding dress that Cinderella wore. But we never did. Because F Disney. We make…

I feel like we can find happiness from others happiness and that’s a beautiful thing…..

Bambi Got Holey Earlobes!!

Or pierced.. whatever..   My initial thought when daddybasic bought up the topic was no.. but he kept insisting that the earlier the better. Probably true because when I first got my ears pierced at flipping 7 years old with a piercing gun, shiiiiiit did it effing hurt. And I still remember it. I bawled my…

Toddler Meal Ideas (easy as shit)

Getting a 2 year old to ACTUALLY eat is a flipping nightmare. Some would rather attempt to eat the Dettol handwash than human food. I’ve been there done that, it does get better! My general rule is keep it simple and colourful. Anything I can whip up with one hand and half a body is…
