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”…

Turning 3 and it’s all about me!

October 2, 2017

3 It’s always been favourite of mine… 13 Feb 2003 – the day I met Mr. Perfect, October 3rd – our wedding anniversary, also the amount of little ladies we currently have and 3, the age of our middle little. Isn’t 3 just the cutest? We’re past the hard work of those 1st few years and everyone survived the “terrible twos”… no more bottles, diapers, no trying to decipher the wants and needs of a 3 foot dictator. Yes, 3 is…

The birth of Ava Loïs

September 6, 2017

Today our Ava is two months old. I celebrate by sharing her birth story. It took me a while to post because finding words to describe the emotions and experience of that day is impossible, but I’ll try my best. So here goes… Being my 3rd Caesarean section you’d think I’d be calm, knowing what to expect and ready for the day. This however was not the case. I felt more nervous and anxious than ever before. The knowledge of…

#TwinningPlusOne: Schnooky Pie

August 17, 2017

We have always been passionate about supporting local, shopping small (in the hope the brand will grow BIG) and being proudly South African but now that we have 3 little ladies to dress between the ages of 6 weeks and 5 years it is a bit more challenging… Key factors making things hard: Limited choice – There’s an abundance of baby clothes available online and in stores but as the girls turn 3 our options seem to decline rapidly. Affordability…

Gelique Couture, a proudly South African design house specialising in bridesmaid dresses and wedding attire. That…
