Sleepover Safety

15 Shares

Your children love you and ordinarily cannot bear to away from you however, as they get older they make friends and very soon you will hear requests asking to go for a sleepover or slumber party. Growing up, my Dad was not big on sleep overs and I never quite understood why. As far as I was concerned he was being a “party pooper” but as I got older I began to understand what some of his concerns may have been; like most parents, he wanted to be assured we were safe and comfortable and the easiest way was having […]

Whenever it’s time to dance he is always taken out early, I must admit though: the boy no too sabi dance! I honestly wish those silly party clowns would be a little nicer.

Breastfeeding Is Best!

Okay, I know that sounds a bit corny but I am so passionate about mums breastfeeding. Check out http://www.breastfeedingroom.com/ and let me know what you think.

I also aim to dispel myths about breastfeeding such as: “you can’t breastfeed when pregnant” “you can’t get pregnant when breastfeeding exclusively” (I did!), and “kids who aren’t breastfed are olodos” (hmm… I wonder how I got through Law School) LOL! Anyway, feel free to visit my site and ask any questions. I am currently studying to be […]

I hardly ever saw my parents argue, not because they didn’t but because they had the good sense not to argue in front of us. I and my husband on the other hand have been quite silly because we argue in front of them all the time. Of recent I started telling my husband to mind the kids, and his response has been ” they don’t understand” which is quite absurd because I know that I remember stuff from when I was 3 and my son is 4! Well, last weekend we had another minor argument and my 4 year […]
