Double Hormones Double ‘Fun’!

LJ. The vomiting began very quickly. In fact, I knew I was pregnant because as soon as I missed a period, I felt queasy. And the sickness got worse as the pregnancy progressed. It was like being seasick, but you cannot get off the boat. The only time my partner ever had any sympathy for […]

Funky Feet: Patriotic Shoes for Kids

When I was a single girl, I had quite the shoe collection! It may seem cliché, but I loved having the perfect pair of heels, boots or flats for every occasion. Once I was married and had children, I had to cut back a bit on my collection. And as with most of my mum […]

Pink Eye in Children: Causes, Symptoms and Treatments

Small children can be prone to red, irritated eyes, most commonly known as pink eye or conjunctivitis. New parents should be on the lookout for pink eye in children to prevent and/or treat this infection if it appears, and avoid long-lasting damage. Of course first-time parents should avoid paranoia and be careful not to diagnose […]

Sticking point

This week I found myself in one of the sticky situations that regularly seem to punctuate my life. Let me set the scene. I’m sitting at the garden table with the nine-year-old, and we’re stuffing newspaper into old tights and sticking them onto a waistband for an octopus costume (don’t ask). The six-year-old is sitting […]

Felix Handelman

The story of baby Felix Handelman is truly inspirational. Like Skyler Berman, Felix’s parents, actress Elizabeth Banks and sports writer, producer Max Handelman have had a successful 20+ year relationship. Married in 2003, they began a journey to bear a child. While Elizabeth’s professional life soared, acting in the film “W” and the television series […]

You’re having TWINS!!

LJ:  The best thing about parenting twins is also the worst thing about parenting twins – there are two of them.  It’s incredibly difficult having two babies when, like me, you’re a first time clueless mother who didn’t know what to do with one baby.  But I found myself actually feeling sorry for parents that […]

Style Sense: Decorating the Nursery

I still remember the joy of decorating the nursery for my firstborn, Tom. There was so much anticipation for his arrival, that I felt that the active task of planning and decorating was a wonderful way to direct my nervous energy. Of course, I might have gone a bit overboard, as I spent a fortune […]

Baby photo albums to brag about

Chris and I are definitely not old-fashioned. We are both on Facebook and are addicted to our iPhones! I would like to think that we are modern parents who know what’s up in the world. But we haven’t outgrown our photo albums. I’ve seen lots of interesting digital photo frames that flash a new picture […]

Where did I leave my keys? Memory loss during pregnancy

When I was a first-time mum, I felt like I had lost my marbles! The baby had not arrived yet, and I was feeling so forgetful and out of sorts. I could never remember where my keys were, and once I even found them in the fridge! How did they get there? I can’t remember.   […]

How to clean a potty mouth

I always dreaded “the terrible twos”. Psychologists agree that around 24 months old is when children start testing their parents’ limits. They might do or say things just to see how mum will react. Part of this rebellion is the potty mouth stage. Working mums especially might find swear words hard to deal with. Since […]

Summer reading, every mum’s dream!

While I feel it is important to provide our children with a change from their school environment during the summer holidays, I also like to avoid a “brain drain”. In my personal experience, a summer reading programme is the perfect answer, whether you organise it yourself or take advantage of your local library. My son Tom […]

Violet Anne Affleck

Violet Anne Affleck was born in Los Angeles on December 1, 2005 to the high-profile couple, actor Jennifer Garner and actor/director Ben Affleck. This celebrity baby was already on television before her birth; her mother was pregnant with Violet on the set of Alias and incorporated her into the successful drama series. Interests and activities […]

Feeling hot hot hot

As we get a slight reprieve in the soaring temperatures this week, I thought I’d share my views on how to stay cool in the blistering heat. I’m finding that, at 36 weeks into my pregnancy, it’s getting harder and harder to cope with the heat. Like many mums-to-be I’m sure the question everyone keeps […]

Business and Breastfeeding: A Balancing Act

Balancing business and breastfeeding can be a tricky endeavour. There are plenty of advantages to nursing, which is why so many mums don’t want their work life to get in the way of caring for their baby. The good news is that pursuing your career and breastfeeding are not incompatible! There are several ways to […]

Fun with Skip Hop Dunck: Bath Time Toys

Bath time is such a special bonding time between parents and their children. It’s an intimate moment to play and communicate with your newborn. That’s why bath toys are so key! The tub is not only for hygiene but also for play! And since infants should not be left alone in the water, creative and […]
