I am so grateful to have had two healthy pregnancies. Before we even thought about starting a family, I knew that I wanted to have access to the best essential and nutritional options if I were to fall pregnant.
But what I wasn’t really aware of at the time, is that taking care of yourself prior to falling pregnant was just as important!
Luckily for me, I had a few friends who were pregnant before me and they educated me on the steps you need to take prior to planning for a family.
Probably the most important piece of advice I received was to take prenatal vitamins.
Not only are they important during pregnancy, but also before AND after, while breastfeeding.
To my baby boy on your 4th birthday
Aidy Baby – I don’t think it’s appropriate for us to call you that any longer.
That’s the nickname that big Sister has given you since the day you were born and it has stuck. Even Alyssa’s friends call you that.
You also have that baby face that I think will always be, regardless of your age!
Keeping the kids entertained during LoadShedding is no easy task, especially if you’re not prepared. Loadshedding is here and it looks like it’s going to go on for a while. We can scream, shout, stand on our heads but that’s not going to help us in any way!
It’s not perfect circumstances so all we can do is prepare, especially when you have the tall task of not only explaining to your kids what’s going on but also keeping them happy and entertained when the power is out… especially in the evenings. During the day it’s a lot simpler to just take them outside and play, but in the evening and when it starts to get colder, indoors it will be!
I thought I’d share a few tips that help us get through the times when the lights go out and the TV doesn’t switch on!
The season of falling leaves and misty mornings is upon us. I couldn’t be more excited! Maybe because it’s my birthday season, but Autumn really is my favourite.
The months can pass by so quickly and we often don’t take the time to enjoy it. So I thought I’d make a list of things I’d like to do this season, which I’ll use as inspiration to encourage myself to make the most of the fresh crisp air that Autumn brings!
It’s not a lengthy list at all. I’m keeping it short and sweet and will actually print it off, as my plan is to actually tick each item before Winter officially begins!
