Mamma you got this!

Do you count in sleeps until the weekend or until an exciting event? So that means it`s 1 sleep ...until relax time. It is also 7 sleeps until Dad comes home. So Dad went away last week - yes... I have survived 9 days without my soulmate, my rock, my life.Nine whole long days and some very long and hard nights. With a 1 year old (a very clingy 1 year old) and a 3 year old (my threenager atm)... in tow... let me tell you I have a very new found respect for you single mamma`s. Sjoe!

The fleece liner

Be brave and don`t be a sheep

Being a mamma can be real tough some times. You have to make all these decisions about our little humans- and always in the back of our minds is “am I doing the right thing”. We seek support from friends and family yet often are faced with negativity and it`s almost like they want you to fail… why is that? I remember when I shared my desire to cloth diaper with a few close humans. I was met with screwed up faces, some blank faces… some awkward silences and often the response was something like  “ Cloth nappies? Really? Sjoe you won`t have time for that! “ Modern cloth nappies are everything but time consuming. And let me tell you-...
