Confessions from a Stay at Home Mum

I am a stay at home Mum. It has taken me a long time to come to terms with this. When I first told my closest friends that I was going to be a stay at home Mum, I felt embarrassed. This group of women were hugely successful in their careers. Balancing work and motherhood. I felt that I no longer belonged to their tribe and was unworthy of ever complaining about being tired or lonely.

What goes into my Toddler Snack Box

I am a big believer in the ‘snack box’. It is like a lunch box, but also contains many many many snacks. Because toddlers tummies are so unpredictable. Some days they are hungry little hippos, hoovering up body builder sized plates of food. Other days it is flat out food refusal. So I like to […]

Discrimination against Mums in the Workplace

Discrimination against working Mums in the workplace exists in Australia and is happening every day. It does not matter that it is 2018, and the laws say that employees are to be treated equally, regardless of gender. When you are a mother, and you are either working or looking for work, there is a great chance that you have experienced some form of discrimination. It may be subtle, such as a crack from a coworker about leaving early to take care of a sick child. Or in my case, it is being treated as completely unemployable due to my having taken a year off work to be home with my son.

The idea behind baby led weaning is to eat with your baby, at the same time, the same table and sharing the same food.

Did I mention it was messy? But If you have decided that baby led weaning is for you, here are some products to make baby led weaning easier and more enjoyable. And most of all, less messy!

The Scary Start to my Pregnancy

I had a scary start to my pregnancy. With severe implantation pains very early on, I spent the first weeks of my pregnancy thinking that it was ectopic, and that I would miscarry. I had absolutely no idea that implantation pain as badly as mine, was a symptom of pregnancy our body could go through. At the time, it was absolutely terrifying and incredibly painful both physically and emotionally.

Battling Gender Stereotypes: It Begins in the Nursery

Gender stereotypes can limit children’s growth, development and wellbeing. At only 15 months old, my son is too young to yet have any concept of gender. However, I believe that it is not too young to begin creating a home environment free from the limitations of gender stereotypes. From birth and through toddlerhood, interactions with […]
