It’s African Vaccination Week (24 – 30 April) in line with other World Health Organisation (WHO) Regions and the World Immunization Week.
The goal is to increase awareness of the importance of every person’s (children particularly) right to be protected from vaccine-preventable diseases.
I’ve seen a few horror stories online about children getting very ill due to parents not opting to get their children vaccinated. There seems to be a trend where people are led to believe that there is some benefit in delaying vaccinations in children, however there is absolutely no research to back this up and immediately puts a child at risk of getting unnecessarily ill.
This month I’ve been reflecting on how happy and sad it can be watching my kids grow up. There’s nothing more that I love than watching them flourish and grow, but at the same time, it’s really hard to come to terms with the fact that they will never be as small as they are today.
Time really flies by so quickly. I will never forget how excited Kurt and I were when we saw those 2 lines on a pregnancy test! It was so much fun planning the baby’s arrival, shopping for clothes and all the cute baby goodies.
We also stocked up on a few packs of Pampers Premium care diapers – and it’s just one of those things that have never let us down with both kids. No nappy rash, no accidents and no waking up during the night due to leaking!
‘Make your space your living dream’ – that’s the theme of Decorex Cape Town 2017.
Home is where the heart is, and if you like me, you get joy out of making your space a sanctuary. Decorex Cape Town is definitely the place to be next week if you’re looking for inspiration to reinvent your space and see the latest trends in décor excellence.
This year it’s all about natural fabrics, revitalising tones and quality products all centred around a vision of reclaiming a space of sanctuary, disconnected from the relentless noise and distraction of the modern world.
So I got tagged by fellow Mom Blogger, Anthea from Anthea’s Project Life, to share ways as to how I’m rocking being Mom to my 2 kids. Thank you Anthea!
Due to time and prioritising, I usually don’t tend to participate in these kinds of tagging stuff but I really enjoyed reading other Mommy blogger posts in this one – like Anthea’s, Cindy’s and Vee’s.
I’m certainly not a perfect Mom and there are many ways in which I can improve myself to be a better parent, but you know what – right now, I’m doing the best that I can do! So instead of dwelling on the negative, I think all Moms need to cut themselves some slack now and again! This is exactly what I love about this blog tag!
