Folded underwear & Self-care

I was folding a pair of panties the other day and it hit me that I hadn't done that in longer than I could remember. I hadn't folded my own underwear in months. Wow. My kind of self-care involves folded underwear. Baby E was asleep and I had tiptoed out of the room to get a drink of water. On my way back into the room, I saw a pile of clean laundry that needed folding and thought to myself that I'd just do the underwear to start with and then go back in to nap with her. Ten minutes…

How to raise a family while being a momentrepreneur

Juggling family & entrepreneurship as a mom In this post, I’m going to give you three tips that have saved me so much time, energy and to be honest also my sanity while juggling between raising a family and being a momentrepreneur.

What do babies really need?

If you could only buy one item for your baby...just one...I'd say let it be a tube of Bepanthen nappy cream. I couldn't rave about it enough. Yes, let your child run naked and hungry as long as he/she is well moisturized in some Bepanthen. It's the only thing your baby will really need :) On a serious note, I'll always list that before anything else. And then coconut oil. I already have my list of baby necessities up and it's the list of every item I purchased before baby was born. However, I was interested to see what other…

The Real Story of Postpartum Sex [Guest Post]

“6 more weeks and you can be back at it,” my doctor parroted, distracted on her way out of the door.   It had been a rough pregnancy.  Spent almost entirely on bed rest and ending in an emergency C-Section at 30 weeks, the ordeal would soon be over.  The baby was safe in the NICU, and in 6 short weeks I would be able to do everything I could do before the pregnancy...including sex.  At least that is what the doctor said. Photo by Christian Bowen on Unsplash 6 weeks flew by.  The baby came home.  And one fateful night…

Honesty doesn’t equal negativity

I’ve always been fairly cut and dried in the way I speak to people. More so in recent years and sometimes a bit excessively. Even in my own opinion. I don’t realise I’m being too blunt sometimes but I am most blunt when I’m speaking about myself and the things that I see as my own faults. I am conscious about not being quite so blunt with others. Especially those I care about. I want to keep this up of course but this year, I want to be more intentional with the way I address myself too. Overall though, I’m determined…
