Blogger Battle

I’m embarrassingly naive at blogging. But it’s become apparent that there’s a blogging battle going on between “Mummy/Daddy Bloggers” in Australia right now. I’ve never considered myself a “mummy blogger.” I made the rookie error of never picking a niche  when I started my page. I post about parenting, but I’m not really a mum […]

PART 1 – Q & A with my OBGYN about Premature Birth & Stillbirth

Part 1 of a 3 part series where my daughters (Delphi & Cheska) and I return to the hospital where they were born premature to ask the questions we’ve always wondered in an attempt to help increase public awareness of premature birth and stillbirth.   In part 1 we reunite with Dr Neil Israelsohn, the […]

I’m Not An Over-Sharer

I admirer “over-sharers” and I can see how many  find them empowering. I’m not an over sharer though. Because I’m cautious of what my kids would want on the Internet in years to come. There have been times when I was going to stop posting them at all and I am still conflicted about this. […]

I’m Happy That I’m Not Pregnant

“I’m SO happy that I’m not pregnant!” -said no one on the Internet ever. Because to many in society this still appears to be selfish. It appears to rub it in the face of people that can’t or struggle to have children that often sacrifice all their emotional energy, finances, health and even relationships to […]

Mother Nature Isn’t Always A Kind Mother When It Comes To Childbirth

I am nearly 3 years post my most recent birth. And it still makes me grit my teeth when I hear the debate about natural birth vs hospital intervention/pain relief/c-section. When I had my son I had a vaginal birth. No drugs. Small tear. Didn’t poo. Sex 4 weeks postpartum (which actually wasn’t recommended but […]

Don’t Tell Me One Of My Kids Is Your Favourite

Please, please, please, pleeeease don’t tell me when one of my children is your “favourite.” You stab me in the heart when you do so. Though I put my life out there (like so many mothers in this day and age) it was never my intention that my children may be up against each other. […]

Freeing The Nipple Of Its Little Balls

When I was a young adult, I had the deep desire to do something to my body. I wanted to get a tattoo but I had already gone and done that at just the legal age of 18 and 2 weeks old (my mum was so proud – not) and I knew the regret of […]

Announcing a birth that didn’t go to plan

This blog is dedicated to a little boy called “Owen.” He was one of the best intensive care roommates my girls could ever had and despite landing in their room through similar circumstances, he fought a much harder fight. His parents showed so much strength that I don’t know I could have had myself. They […]

The Name Game

This post was written for The Name Game. You can see the original post here. The Name Game is a website dedicated to the stories of how people came to name their children and also has an emphasis on finding “different” baby names. I highly recommend! Liam on TV pretending he had no idea about our kids […]

Baby Twins Checklist

If you are expecting twins and are anything like me, you would’ve realised that all the information out there on a “what do I need to have for twins” is very vague. Some general information but really nothing specific to having more than one. And needless to say, having more than one child at a […]

Same/Same But Not Same

I really don’t think people who aren’t parents of multiples understand the dilemma us that are parents of multiples have dressing our kids. And particularly that of identical children or multiples of the same gender. I know that before I became a twin mum I always said that “I would never dress my kids the […]
