Gender Reveal! We’re Having A…

I hate  surprises. I try to make this fact abundantly clear to all my friends and lovers to stop them dead in their tracks before they go ahead and plan any elaborate surprise shindigs for me. Why, oh why, would you deprive me of the joy of looking forward to the said shindig? Why keep […] Read more…

Back To School and Goodbye Nursery!

Come on kids, back to school! I loathed that Bata advert as a child. 80s kids will shudder at the memory of that iconic TV ad.

What cravings?!” I scoffed.   Fast forward to this pregnancy and I […] Read more…

My Pick Me Up

I’ve been having a rough couple of weeks. Nothing seems to be going right at home or work. I know in my heart that writing makes me feel better, but I can’t help but stop writing completely when I’m feeling down.

This Is Ella’s Hair

This is Ella’s hair. My goal as her mom has always been to take care of it myself, with no outside help, and when she was a toddler, I could! Tiny matutas were perfectly fine. Loose mini ponytails were good for a week. Now that she’s older, she cares a lot more about how her […] Read more…
