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 […]

Changing your mind is OK

It’s interesting how returning to where you grew up can conjure different emotions depending on what your experience of growing up there was. I know for many it is nostalgic and wonderful. I feel that way about returning to my first hometown of Portland, Victoria. My Dad and I at our local beach in Portland […]

Delphi & Cheska’s Ocean Party – Photo Gallery

My 13 week prem babies have turned 4! Not only do we feel so fortunate that Delphine & Cheska are healthy, happy, spirited, energetic children but personally I’ve found myself transitioning into a different phase of parenting. Nappies, bottles and dummies are all in the past for our house and it really does feel like such an achievement. So we […]

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 […]

My Kids Talked To The Person At The Fence

The other day Liam and I were given a reality check. I’m on holidays at the moment but can’t stop playing it over in my head. We were in the front garden of our home which has a very high fence with a gate that my children can’t reach but an adult can easily open. We […]

My Fanny

Note: I use the word “fanny” in this often. If you are from places such as the USA, the word fanny is used to talk about vaginas in Australia. Not bums.  It is fairly often that people cry out “oh you are so politically correct” to me. Usually I eye roll and couldn’t careless because I […]

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 […]

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 […]
