It Had to Happen Eventually!

My little guy just loves to bath. He hears the bath water going and he thinks he’s Rocky moving to the song “The Eye of the Tiger”. (I like the song- never seen the movie.) I think this excitement stems from the fact that mom is removed from the picture for a time so there’s no cuddles and kisses. It’s male bonding time with Dad! YEAH! I happily get other chores done while I hear...

Baskets of Fun

I made these with my sisters kids (5 years and 3 years) one easter and they seemed to be quite excited to give them away as gifts…hmmm, now that I think about it, maybe they gave them away to get rid of them?  I enjoyed making them regardless. I found a similar recipe  at http://www.landolakes.com although they used noodles which I think would not taste particularly nice. Here’s my version:   2...

Marshmallow Pinwheels

I made these with my niece and nephew for easter once but they can be made as party treats or just for fun. They’re quick and easy and create little mess! It’s basically a “s’more” on a stick. You will need:  A packet of marshmallows A packet of marie biscuits A box of smarties or jellytots 1/4 cup icing sugar Water A slab of chocolate (optional- but yummy) kebab sticks Place...

Thy Bottom Stinketh

Unpleasant duties by Adriaen Brouwer, depicting changing diapers Lately I’ve had little time to sit and type between chores but time to think and the journey of my thoughts led me to ponder the wonders of what I like to call “convenient caring”: We have formula if the breast doesn’t work out. Purity in a bottle. Nappies we don’t have to fold or (for the most part) wash....

Belly Rub Anyone?

Today was a big day for me. I put away my “Big Mamma” clothes (also known as post pregnancy clothes) and removed all the maternity clothes that crowded my cupboard. Frankly, these items of clothing were still part of my wearing wardrobe until about a month ago when while taking a walk with my babe- I almost lost my pants. It was hard knowing I would have to give up the comforts of the elasticated...

Happy Mother’s Day! 10 May 2009

This really is a quick tip… Have a happy mother’s day!

Caesar vs Natural

So, when finding out I was going to have a baby (yes, it wasn’t exactly a planed pregnancy), one of the many thoughts that ran through my mind was: “Ouch! That means I have to give birth?!” I decided I was going to be prepared for this, and read all I could to learn about what was happening to my body and what was going to happen to me when giving birth. Any first-time-mom’s concern, right?...

Only a Mother

My almost seven month old has no problem with the input of food but for the past week has been having some problems with the output of what once was food. The one particular day, he was really struggling. It’s so difficult to see a baby struggle especially when there’s little that can be done to help at that moment. I tried to assist my boy in the least gross way possible (some leg lifting,...

Ceasar Tips- 6 May 2009

My doctor prescribed Eglonyl- common misspelt eglinol  (anti-depressant and it assists in milk supply) as soon as I had delivered. We had discussed this prior to the birth. I feel, as a result I did not suffer the third day blues and I feel it helped me to cope. I stopped them about two months after birth when I thought I didn’t need them any longer. It was great not having to experience the severe downs...

The Waddle

I can’t exactly remember when I was first diagnosed with the waddle. I think I was possibly about eight months pregnant. I couldn’t understand why one of my male colleagues was making strange penguin movents as he approached me. I thought that maybe we were playing charades, I had to guess what he was and I was just didn’t know. Then it clicked- he was imitating me. I was insulted. I definitely...
