Being a father to daughters

Jun 17, 2018
being a Father to daughters father with wife and daughters

For most of my pre-adult life I was adamant that I did not want kids. Truth is, it scared me. I was convinced that being a dad just wasn’t my thing and I’d definitely mess up as a father. I had other plans, “bigger plans” and as time passed I didn’t even give my future brood a second thought. Fate however would have be being a father to daughters in no time… but, let’s start at the beginning. It was the…

Fathers Day: Celebrate Dad

It’s Monday and with Father’s day this Sunday it’s time to give credit where credit is due. I’m talking about all the incredible fathers, doing their part in raising their kids. The men we call the great loves of our lives, the ones that stick with us – raging hormones, stretch marks, loose belly skin, saggy breasts and all! It’s time to celebrate dads and (our Mr. Perfect too). First however, confession time… Are you a parent to your kids…

DISNEY BE AMAZING: BECAUSE GIRLS, YOU ARE ALREADY AMAZING!

Just A Mamma Disney Be Amazing

Disney Princesses… Don’t we all have a favourite? That one princess that blew you away with her strength, charm and beauty. Someone you could look up to and aspire to be. For me it was (and will always be) Princess Belle from Beauty and the Beast. The opening scene with her reading a book and dreaming of exploring the world described me to a tee – a little girl, stuck in a small town, always reading and plotting her way…

Just a Mamma Barbie

Let’s talk body image… Not just your own but your little ones’ too. I’m a mother of girls. The way I love and value myself is the way they will value and love themselves. It’s a hard truth that I have had to learn but thankfully the lesson came early and the solution could be handled in a fun manner. Thanks to some help from an old, childhood friend… It all started with a theme at school, “I am special”.…

JustaMamma #LoveMoreZA campaign

 I have been part of some wonderful campaigns but never has one been so close to my heart as the #lovemoreZA movement. It all started with a WhatsApp and a play date… I’ve always admired Michelle, the mama maker and creative force behind Mayalief. We met many years ago at the Flair Baby Market and what started out as a customer relationship soon became a friendship. We share similar values and a passion for our families and mothering. Working together…

JustaMamma Survival CPR

Attending a 1st aid and CPR course is a must for all parents. I learnt so much after the Survival CPR one day course at Wilgers Hospital last year. It was jam packed with more information than I ever expected. One of the most interesting things discussed was about the chain of survival. This differs for adults and children… The adult chain of survival consists of the following: For babies and children however there is a very important 1st chain……

How being an involved father is the best decision you’ll ever make.

Involved father kissing newborn baby

The definition of father: a man in relation to his child or children. What does this even mean? Am I only someone in relation to my kids? This can’t be enough. I need to be more, I need to be an involved father. But how and why? “I am a father.” This is something I have to tell myself every day. Please, don’t get me wrong. This sentence is not a negative one. I love saying it. But, I need…
