I was feeling a bit smug about my plan to tell my son a big secret. I’m normally more of a blurt-it-out type, but lately I’ve been channeling a much more mindful and profound parent than I really am. In a moment of inspiration, I’d decided to take my baby boy to look at baby […]
Cue the tears and the wailing “how is my baby TWO already!?” You know how it goes. Well, technically his birthday isn’t for a few more days, but we had a party last weekend for the family and this is how it went down…. P.S I’m using these pics for my 10 on 10 photo […]
I’ve not really introduced you to my husband yet. He’s in this story, despite his wish to be cool and anonymous like Batman. He’s ex-military so we’re going to call him Sarge. So… meet Sarge.

First up, I want to apologise for my indifference last year. I’m sorry I acted like I didn’t know/care about you, […]

I LOVE being a mum. My 17 month old son is the COOLEST human being I know. He makes me laugh all day long. I’ve never regretted joining the motherhood. Even on the hard days when everything sucks, I still love it and would never want to go back. Except for days like today. You […]
Dear Parents of Australia, I ask you one simple question. Did you really actually want children? Seriously? Because it seems a lot like you didn’t.
