Recipes with working mums

Fun home-made pizzas for children

It has happened to most of us working mums. After a long day at the office, one of the last things we want to do is slave over a hot cooker preparing dinner, so we phone our favourite pizza place and order one for delivery. The kids love pizza, and mum gets a break. It’s a win-win, right? Not exactly. With all the grease, fat and less-than-fresh toppings, delivery pizzas should not be on regular rotation in our diets. But that doesn’t mean all pizzas are off the menu! While I certainly love the occasional delivery pizza, I’ve discovered a healthy and fairly easy recipe for home-made pizzas that tastes even better. Making them is also a fun activity that my two sons Jack and Rodger and I can do together, and the leftovers can be used for packed lunches throughout the rest of the week.

Moreover, negativity affects your happiness, and an unhappy mum means an unhappy family. On the contrary, positive thinking can have beautiful results. It’s a skill that takes some time to learn (at least, it did for me!), but with a little practice it can become second nature. Smiles and kindness No matter how sad you feel about a situation, smiling is a great way to alleviate stress and help change your frame of mind for the positive. Also, try finding the humour of the situation and laughing about it. If you are […]

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 we spend so much time in the office, we want time with our children to be quality, and discipline is extremely hard. But vulgarity is something I can’t allow, so I struggled with how to handle the situation. How to handle foul language Children usually say bad words because they are imitating people in their lives, whether it be their parents, guardians, nannies, teachers, schoolmates, or a neighbour. They are like sponges. Therefore, I like to monitor what they see and hear on the television or internet. Although learning a bad word or two may […]
