It’s the last day of term today. As a parent, a thousand thoughts come to mind. Here are a few…
1. Yayee – no more school lunches to prepare the night before. Kids will eat leftovers, eggs, smoothies or whatever is on hand
2. I’m going to be broke by the end of the holidays, because every time you leave the house with 4 kids, it costs a tonne of money
There are plenty of blogs telling you all about the horror of child birth, about the changes children make in your life – the good, the bad, the ugly, some tell you what you should and shouldn’t be doing or buying, but few talk of the mother guilt you are likely to feel. Maybe not everyone does have mother guilt, maybe I am just gifted in this area… lucky me! Continue reading
Hello *waves with one hand, uses the other to shield eyes from spotlight* Thanks for dropping by my blog. This is a little bit about me…
I love being a SAHM, despite all the crappy days- and trust me, there are a few! I love cooking, and creating new recipes, although I hate the clean up! I generally cook using wholefoods, and make as much of the family’s meals from scratch as possible. I am on a mission to reduce our wheat and refined sugar intake as a family this year and will be posting successful recipes for you to enjoy also. I will still be posting some recipes that use standard flour and sugar too, as I do still use them sometimes.
Early this year I announced to my hubby that this was the year I would get organized. He smiled gently at me and told me that I announce that every January. I obviously had forgotten previous years… So this year IS the year to be organized! I am all about lists and schedules- schedules for cleaning, kids morning routines, homework routines, chore charts- you get the idea! I’ll be posting these on the blog, feel free to copy them and edit them to suit your own family.
I was born into a family of five girls, all very different (strong) personalities, all a bit crazy in our own way (I’m sure they won’t mind me saying that, right?!). I met my amazing husband fifteen years ago and before long we were married. Thirteen years passed and we now have four beautiful kids. One boy, Master B (10yrs), followed by three girls Miss C (9yrs), Miss E (6yrs) and Miss O (20 months).
I constantly contradict myself – please don’t hold it against me! I love old movies, and adore Doris Day and Barbara Streisand. I often confuse Kevin Costner and Brue Willis- I have no idea why, and I enjoy tacky action movies, like Die Hard (speaking of Bruce Willis…). I look forward to ‘meeting’ you all and hearing your feedback 🙂 Have a wonderful day (or night!)
