It is with great pleasure, and courtesy of the wonderful Lauren of the Toy Toggle Team, that I can say CONGRATULATIONS to: Continue reading
I recently did a raving review about the simple yet genius piece of baby/toddler equipment called the Toy Toggle. It’s a practical piece of equipment that has certainly brought some piece of mind to our lttle household. For the full review on this Proudly South African product, go read here.
If you read that review, then you’d understand why Im such a fan of Toy Toggle. In fact, I love it so much I want YOU to also have one!!!

Side note: This post is pretty delayed, as explained here in this post. But its a post Ive been wanting to share for so long, hopefully inspire anyone who’s looking for party ideas.And now with my girl’s birthday looming, I thought the timing is pretty fitting
So Im pretty much a sucker for party planning, particularly a kiddies party. Because kids know how to have fun! Always so open to the new experience – no matter how slow or shy they are to open up at first. The more colourful, sillier, active and inclusive it is for them, the better…So I know I can put in the effort, and be assured that it will be enjoyed.
Even more so for the birthday person in question, when I know it’s a theme they’re totally into right at the time. Like when my eldest daughter turned three in 2014, and was nuts about Dora the Explorer. Like really, Continue reading
Lauren, the mastermind behind Toy Toggle, got in touch with me recently and was kind enough to give me a test run of their simple yet highly practical baby equipment. In fact, it looked so simple that I didn’t realise how practical and useful it actually was, until I started using it! The fact that it is Proudly South African, already sealed it for me.
See that little blanket with the taglets dangling there in the pic above? Well, meet Blankie. Parker-Grace’s sleep buddy and the Continue reading
Noticed all the hub-bub lately over on social media about the #CTMEETUP that happened this past Saturday? Yeah? Got a touch of FOMO? Yeah, I don’t blame you. Crying out into the heavens as to why you didn’t just get yourself a ticket before they sold out?
Hmmmm, oh dear, well, I’m not about to make it much better, then am I? What with the incredible blow by blow recap Im about spill.’Cause, honey if you’re a blogger and you weren’t there, then let Continue reading
I’ve shared Morgan-Lee’s birth story with you(If you’ve missed it, start here.). It may be a bit long and verbose, but (hopefully) still beautiful. Admittedly, I don’t I think I actually did enough justice to its beauty. But I suppose, as with most birth stories, that may be something that a mother may never get right in the written word, and it will, instead, forever only live on, very clearly, in my head.
Parker-Grace’s birth story, however, I’ve decided that instead of letting you read it…I’ll show it to you! You know what they say about pictures and a thousand words, right? So perhaps I’ll let you do the maths on words for a video!!! It is a Continue reading

Ssssssso, when it comes to birthdays within my family, there’s actually almost never a month (and sometimes not even a week) that doesn’t go by without a birthday being celebrated. Im really not even kidding about that.
Yes, this can be heavy on the pocket, but honestly, it is so rich in its soulfoodness, as it keeps my heart singing – what with all the family get togethers we end up having. This may often be a little tough on hubby, who’s used to a tiny family, but it’s an absolute thriving point for me!
Case in point: This past April alone, we wished his brother-in-law veels geluk, sang happy birthday to Mikey (on the beach,lunch,tea AND at Izakaya Matsuri) and then wished his incredible grandmothera happy 98 years the very next day. Now that we are in May, we’re getting ready for our eldest daughters fourth birthday!!! (Who also happens to Continue reading
Ever heard of baby fog? You know, the very real phenomenon of a woman who,post birth, embarks (mostly unknowingly) on a quest to find her sanity that she has been stripped of? That process of peeling away the old layers of her former self, as the new, bolder, stronger, and very probably, a loopier self emerges. She has a rocky path before her, one of finding her new “normal”.
There’s no denying that becoming a mother is an incredible transformation of a woman,(in fact becoming a parent, in general, so you too dads) but there’s also no denying that the adjustment can be rough at times. To put it mildly.
Even to the woman who, to the world it seems as if she has it all together, or that her ride wasn’t as rough as your’s, the truth is, you just don’t know Continue reading
