Quick Q&A with My Daughter, Izzy

I thought it would be a nice idea to include Izzy (my 7 year old) in a blog. She often sits and watches me while I blog, then pretends to write her own *cuteeee*. I’m going to do a quick Q&A with her in the hopes it will cheer her up a little. She’s got Tonsillitis and is suffering pretty badly today. Poor baby. Anyway, here is a quick Q&A with Izzy. Full name:Β  Isabelle Grace Morales Favourite colour: every color except grey Favourite animal: bunny, horse, turtle, fish Favourite holiday: christmas Favourite food: tacos, with cheese, meat, sour cream…

A Letter to My Daughter, Abigail

Dear Abigail, You’re not even 9 months old yet and already I’m more proud of you than I ever could be. When you were born, you didn’t cry. The doctors were pinching your tiny feet and for a split second there, my heart stopped. I had you in my arms and I knew you were breathing but as a new mum all over again, I panicked. Then you started to cry and it took all my strength not to cry too. I just held you and spoke to you gently and kissed you. It was the best day of my…

The Middle Child

Abigail, my 8 month old, is the perfect addition to our family, but the day she was born, it mixed everything up like I thought it would and threw the dynamics of my little family off (no offence Abigail, we love you more than anything). Observing how everything switched gears with my son, who was originally the baby but is now the “middle child”, it can sometimes get to me. Jaxon is 4 years old and will be 5 in April. He was the baby for quite a few years. I wouldn’t say I have a favourite child, but he…

Are We Really Doing Enough to Protect Our Children from Online Predators?

Hi lovelies. I’m going to write about a more serious topic. One that I find important and that I think needs to be given a lot more attention and consideration. Whether you’re a parent or not, you will have probably noticed that as time has gone on, children are able to get their hands on devices such as tablets, smartphones and laptops and have access to the internet. It’s sort of abnormal now for teens to not have at least a cell phone or a laptop and many younger children are privileged enough to have most of these devices nowadays….

Send Your Kids to Bed, Feeling Loved

It seems like as time goes on, parenting is becoming more and more stressful. As more and more families are splitting up, causing more parents to become ‘Single parents’, both parents having to work because the economy is terrible and other life stresses that come our way, it’s hard to keep our patience when our kids are acting up. Trust me, I know. I’m a single mum of 3 kids and although they are my world and make me so unbelievably happy and proud, they drive me absolutely insane. It’s so damn hard having 3 kids and sometimes I lose…

A Letter to Every Mum Out There

Dear Mums of the world, Well done you. Well done and thank you for all that you do! From the moment you wake up to the second your tired head hits the pillow, you’re out there being a hero. Whether you’re a single mum, or you’re parenting as a team. Whether you’re a stay at home mum, or you go out to work, you’re a badass. You keep little humans alive. You not only keep them alive but you make sure they are fed, safe, happy and loved. Do you know how many kids out there go without food, without…
