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…

10 Things That Make Me Happy

I am lucky enough to be passed the happiness torch from The Wordy Mom’s 10 things that make me happy and after reading her list, there were so many things that actually make me happy from just reading and relating. 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…

Mama Expat in Dubai: 5 money related info you need to know..

Living in Dubai is very different from the carefree holidays you can have here. Actually living here can be financially challenging, especially with being sucked into the glam lifestyle promoted everywhere. So here are the top 5 things you need to know when you join the expat life so you’re in the loop.. I hope…

What the Alphabet should stand for..

I’m sick to death of Bob the sodding train and his alphabet song. So here is my version: A is for Apocalypse, the state my house is in. B is for Bedtime, the dramatic time of the day where noone wants to sleep and everyone wants to cry, take a shit and eat the baby…

Last Day of Term..

For Bubba’s last day at nursery before summer break, we went full cute mode. Partly because I was the one having separation anxiety and NEEDED him to be not forgotten. I mean how could you? He’s cute, he’s entertaining and he’s so loving (when fully fed).  So I got bubba to draw one card for…

2 Days left till summer break .. (contains lots of crying)

Probably the most emotional post I’ve written because his nursery (TTBN) sent home Bubbas report and I’m so proud! I’m weeping. My ovaries are weeping. Everyone’s weeping.  (A tad concerned he likes following ants around the playground but still proud!) All those mornings I’ve taken Cornflakes to the face and ran around the house looking…

A Trip to Children’s City, Dubai

These scorching summer times in the sandpit means it’s pretty hard to go out often with 2 kids without wishing Jesus himself descended down with a handful of toddler tranquillizer sausages and a memory wiping fidget spinner. So we took a trip to Children’s City to see the interactive museum, specifically the planets bit because…

Bubba’s 2nd Birthday!Β 

Can’t actually believe it has been two years since he headbutted his way out of me and now we live in a different country and I have a permanent misaligned hip. How did time fly so fast? And how the hell did I survive 2 years of motherhood without having a Britney breakdown and going…
