Just a Mamma Barbie book series

By now I’m sure you’ve noticed… We are Barbie fans. Being a #girlmom it’s impossible not to love a brand that invests and cares so much about empowering woman and inspiring little girls to become all they’ve ever imagined. Mr. Perfect and I agree, we want to teach our girls that they can be anything they want to be and do anything they want to do. They can and should – Dream BIG! So, when we were asked to review the brand…

Just a Mamma Barney Board Books

Establishing a love for reading and books is something we value as parents. So much so that we started reading stories to our girls even before they were born. Bedtime stories is a nightly must and you’ll always find books all over our home. We want to expose our girls to a variety of stories and books that evolve and change as they grow and become skilled in reading. Books that awaken their curiosity, provide joy, teach them and take…

JustaMamma The Brushies book review

It’s been way too long since our last book club selection! We read so many books daily and I’m always scouting new titles for every phase of our girl’s lives. We try our best to tackle all those important milestones and “big parenting moments” with the help of a story – Remember our Potty Training selection and the collection of books we read Eliana and Lia in preparation for Ava? This month’s book of choice; The Brushies, is yet another helpful…

Weaning Sense : Making food FUN for everyone!

Jan 31, 2018

Deciding to start solids isn’t easy. With so many contradictory opinions regarding exclusive breastfeeding and allergy prevention, taking this 1st step towards the food isle can be daunting. About a month ago we took that step… After a lot of back and forth but we finally decided to start! With our older girls we went more “traditional”. Breastfeeding exclusively for 6 months but Ava was ready and eager to eat at 5 months. With the help of the Weaning Sense…

This month it’s all about Potty Training! Living in the southern hemisphere makes December the perfect time to potty train your little. 2 Reasons why; our warm weather and also the fact that most parents enjoy a longer break over Christmas. It can help letting your toddler…

Olly Polly Read

Nov 13, 2017

Our homes are filled with Tv’s, iPads and computers, yet no medium can stir the imagination like a good book. Books take us to new places, introduce us to friends we would never have met and teaches us far more than that which is just written… A child’s love for reading and their ability to read all starts with the opening of “that 1st book”. Olly Polly Kids knows this and with their incredible love for all things local, they just…

Book Club: SA National Book Week 2017

Sep 8, 2017

In honour of SA National book week 2017, I thought it would be a good time to kick off our monthly book club! Yay, finally. Being a reading family, books have come in handy more than once, assisting us in parenting better. Not that we read a lot of parenting books, I’ve found they make excellent flower presses and paper weights – maybe I’ll get to reading one once my grandchildren arrive… No, rather as parenting aids, helping our girls…
