On the 21st day of every month I am reminded that yet another month has gone by. It scares the daylights out of me that time is moving so quickly and that in four months you will be ONE YEAR OLD! On the 21st day of each month I reflect on the month gone by and am always blown away with how much you have learnt and developed in a mere four weeks. BLOWN AWAY. I can’t believe you are capable of learning and growing so much in such a short period of time. Leaps and …. Continue Reading

I have discovered a product that I simply cannot live without. If your baby still makes use of a high chair / pram / car seat – this product will change your life. I am not quite sure how this didn’t exist before now, or the fact that it wasn’t a part of my life sooner.

This parenting gig is NO joke let me tell you. If you are a parent then of course you’ll know. As someone who usually has a grip on everything, I have never felt more challenged in my entire life. Not necessarily a bad thing.
Seven and a half months in, this is the first time I feel totally helpless. Jordan has always been an incredibly curious little boy. He watches people and things with such intense …. Continue Reading

Last week I attended the launch of the great Mambo’s Plastic Warehouse in GreenPoint, Cape Town. I nearly lost it like a 5-year-old with a new spider man toy. Mambo’s is the biggest store I have seen in a while, with massive isles filled with *everything* I love the most. I was instantly in my element and blocked out the world as I made my way through this glorious store.
Mambo’s call themselves a ‘Plastics warehouse’. They are SO, so much more. I’m talking everything …. Continue Reading
I received such a wonderful hamper from Checkers Baby the other day. The hamper was beautifully packaged and *filled* with really helpful goodies from wet wipes to baby lotions, Vaseline’s to shampoo, a baby blankie and a sippy cup. Also included in the hamper was some lovely teething toys (SO helpful right now), Purity rusks and delicious strawberry and rooibos baby tea and some yummy baby snacking goodies. What an amazing hamper!?
