Mamma need to know Motherhood

Pregnancy Bucket list for Mama.

November 6, 2017

Pregnancy. What a special time.  A time to cherish, enjoy, remember… Yes, we’ve all heard it over-and-over again and although it’s true, this is not always easily done. Work, having other little ones, feeling less than “glowing”… all of these things can make it a little difficult to stop and enjoy these 9 months of growing another human. Now, post baby number 3, I’m looking back at all our pregnancies and I’ve come up with a little “pregnancy bucket list”…

One of the woman (and businesses) at the heart of it all was Angelique du Toit from Gelique Couture. Gelique Couture, a proudly South African design house specialising in bridesmaid dresses and wedding attire. That…

Finding myself in Pregnancy. Part 1

March 3, 2017

We have hit the halfway mark of this pregnancy! 20 weeks! Being a 3rd pregnancy, things are very different than the 1st two… You are in it alone and at times this incredible blessing can be forgotten, not just by those close to you but even yourself. At a moment in time where most of your friends are either done having kids or they are in the all consuming hustle of parenting a 1st born, you will feel completely isolated.…

YOU’RE not like a regular mom, YOU are a cool mom!

January 16, 2017

End of last year I stumbled upon a statement tee on Instagram, “I’m not a regular mom, I’m a cool mom!”. At first I wasn’t sure about the message seeing as I AM a regular mom. But the tee stuck and it got me thinking about motherhood and what being a mom today means.In 2012 when I had my 1st it was all about being the “perfect mom”. No sugar, no TV, all wooden and educational toys, home made everything…
