An Unlikely Influence

An Unlikely Influence We all have that special person in our lives, you know, the one who becomes that little voice inside of your head when the going gets tough, when the tough gets rough and when you feel like you’ve had enough. That ONE person who you admired as a young boy or girl, that you eventually started looking up to, and then one day realize that, that ONE

Ditsong National Museum of Natural History

Ditsong National Museum of Natural History Aryan has been having a little, nah who am I kidding, MAJOR dinosaur obsession for a while now. He has an impressive dinosaur book collection, his fair share of dinosaur toys and even some clothes. Dinosaurs is his favorite movie (even though he never watches it for longer than 10-20 minutes) and my YouTube Downloads basically consist of dinosaur videos – the obsession is

This is ME, This is WHY

This is ME, This is WHY Strangers think I’m quiet, my friends think I’m outgoing, my best friends know that I’m completely insane! If you have read the “10 facts about me” post, you pretty much know all there is about me. Yup, I can pretty much sum me up in 10 facts. I actually hate writing about myself, I never quite know what to say, I’m definitely a behind

Koningskind Aktiwiteitsboks

Koningskind Aktiwiteitsboks – An Activity Box with a Twist When I saw the Koningskind advert on Facebook it wasn’t the attractive packaging or all of the amazing educational activities that caught my attention, no, although it was colorful and fun, I have seen so many different activity boxes doing the rounds and were even subscribed to some – all of which were colorful, fun, and educational. What really set Koningskind

Johannesburg Zoo

JOHANNESBURG ZOO Ever since I can remember Aryan has had a unique interest in wild animals. He roared like a lion even before he could talk and he could identify and name wild animals in books long before anything else.

We knew that the family-friendly restaurants around us would have been

To Sleep train or not to sleep train – Part 1

To Sleep Train Or Not To Sleep Train – Part 1 Sleep training is one of those very controversial subjects where just the mention of the term can spark a fire of outrage and judgement faster than you can say “BOOM”. I have noticed that sometimes moms forget that each and every mom’s motherhood journey is unique and special, and that everyone experiences phases differently – what works for you

Our Breastfeeding Rollercoaster

It’s been Good, It’s been Hard, It’s been FUN! When I nurse my precious son, it’s just me and him. The world falls flat along with all my worries and frustrations. In this special moment together, he is happy and the love between us become certain. Our body rhythms sync, our heartbeats and breaths as one. This is our time.

Toddlers are Aliens

15 Facts that prove toddlers are aliens It’s 10PM and after quite the struggle to get my toddler to bed, I finally get the chance to complete some much needed, “normal” adult tasks – like taking a shower.
