Peak Cuteness

And so it is that my youngest is three and the old hormones are raging. Mine that is, not hers. I’m not ready for that yet! Before I had babies, I was pretty desperate to have babies. Then I had babies and I was happy. Also, done with having babies. Then my baby turned into a three-year-old, and my evolutionary-driven…

The Public Conversation I Did Not Want to Have

I don’t often strike up conversations on public transport. I’m polite when spoken to, but I usually just keep myself to myself. So one afternoon when a lady spoke across the aisle to me on a tram into the city, I responded genially – until the conversation took a downward spiral into jaw-dropping territory, which I was powerless to overcome. Made…

Kickass Chicks: Ruth Bruten of Gourmet Girlfriend

As I sit here watching my kid eat the 875th Vegemite sandwich for the week (no strawberry or mandarine on the side thanks mum), I’m excited to have Ruth on the blog today as she’s helped me no end with the thought of getting good food into unwilling children. Ruth is a mum of 5 boys, and is an absolute…

The working mum dilemma

I think I’m in Portland now. I don’t know, I’m writing this from the past.

And it’s better than you imagined. credit Things have been…

The things I didn’t know I wouldn’t know

I originally published this on September 24, 2011 when my first was a wee babe. I was talking about this post in the car the other day with a lass who hopes to be a mum very soon. I told her that everyone having a baby obviously has a different experience, and that some find this motherhood gig easier than…

These are the Golden Days

The other day I was buying one of Smalls’s birthday presents, and I couldn’t resist getting myself a little something too. This These are the Golden Days print sums up pretty much exactly how I feel about parenting my two- and three-year-old right now. They are hilarious. And totally adorable. One serious, verbose, sensitive, kind, and completely incapable of having…

My Parenting Style, Summed up in One Image

Smalls is two today. And as I was going through the photos of her first birthday party (it was a Peter Rabbit theme complete with carrot cake because of course), I came across this one I forgot. I had tried to order cupcakes from a friend who is much better at decorating them than I am, but she had to…
