Discipline.

What a hot topic this has been!
Since posting a video of Jordy (3) emphatically defending his brother Jackson (5) at the announcement that his older brother needed chilli for his bad behaviour, my Insta inbox was flooded on questions, opinions, and not unexpectedly, a few disapproving remarks. It was requested that we run a poll to see what worked for parents when more serious methods of discipline are required.

Before getting onto the results of the poll, I thought I would touch on a few things, and answer a few of the frequently-asked questions I got:  Continue reading “Discipline.”

Our weekend in pix

In the hopes of trying to be a bit better at regular posting {now that my life is starting to become more manageable again!!} I thought I would share our weekend in pix 🙂

FRIDAY:

Jordy, still in his PJs, came in with flowers for me – no idea who’s garden he took these from 😀 :

Justin & I ran to MICA to get a few things for the house and tried this little barista, hiding inside MICA – such a vibey, happy lady named Bule – WOW! One of the best Flat Whites in Ballito:

Got home to find that Jordy gave himself  blue “tattoos” ALL OVER his body: Continue reading “Our weekend in pix”

Brooklyn’s 1st Birthday Party

It was the perfect ONEderland for our ONEderful little girl x

I will let the gorgeous pictures taken by the very talented Samantha Maber do most of the talking, but our little princess’s first birthday party was just the most special and wonderful day. She was in her element and loved all the attention – far more than either of my two boys on their 1st birthdays! I think she is going to be quite like her mama and live for celebrations 🙂
My favourite moment of the day was without doubt watching her face light up as if a million fireflies started glowing inside her soul when we all started singing Happy Birthday to her… she loved every single moment of it ❤

Theme: ONEderland
Venue: Brooklyn Estate Clubhouse

Brag post | Bloom COLOUR RUN

I would like to start this post with a little brag.
The subject of all this bragging:
Well… I happen to know this girl… well she was a girl when I met her, but she is a lady now. A wife and a mom. But as I say, when I met her she was just a girl. Continue reading “Brag post | Bloom COLOUR RUN”

WIN | My Little Picasso Experience

The day before schools went back a couple friends and I decided last minute to take our littles for a fun outing. We threw around a few ideas and then settled on the new “My Little Picasso” we had heard a few moms raving about at Cornubia Mall. We headed to the new-ish mall (it opened doors 28 September 2017), five kiddies to three mamas (I left Miss B home to nap).  Continue reading “WIN | My Little Picasso Experience”

Our Valentine’s day in pictures

It was a different Valentine’s for me. Waking up without my favourite person lying next to me was not the best feeling; Justin was in JHB on a business trip. We are seldom apart from each other, so it stung a little waking up on the “most romantic” day of the year alone. Continue reading “Our Valentine’s day in pictures”

Review | LG Smart Inverter Top Loader

If you have followed me a while you will know that we are so very excited to be building a house – a dream come true for us, complete with a big garden for our babies to play in all day long! So you can only imagine my pure joy and excitement when LG contacted me to try out and feedback on their new LG Smart Inverter Top Loader washing machine.
