World Toilet Day with Domestos

World Toilet Day

Can you imagine your child using a filthy, germ-infested toilet that doesn’t flush? Probably not right?! I can’t too, because we are lucky to have access to beautiful, clean and well-maintained toilets at home, school and work. What about those who don’t? What about the voice-less? The parents and children out there, that are desperate for brighter future prospects, but have to put up with humiliating conditions and disgusting toilets […]

Running Mom Feature {Meet Sonia}

Mama’s I know how much you loved and missed the interview features on the blog, thank you for all the great feedback. Since I’m still in the spirit of celebrating my first Soweto Marathon, I thought it would be appropriate to do a running-mom feature and I just had to approach Sonia first. We’ve known each other for a few years and she just became a first time mom. What surprised […]

My first Soweto Marathon

I surprised myself so much by taking part in my first Soweto Marathon. Just the word marathon is intimidating, I moaned and changed my mind a million times leading up to race day. It just freaked me out, but in the end it was done. I’m grateful to my sister for pushing me to do it because it gave me a chance to see that it’s not that bad.   Training […]

Product Review: Natures Farms Pasta

Natures Farms Pasta

A friend of mine recently had her third baby and over this last weekend, I offered to have her older boys come over for the day. And of course, with kids being kids, they begged to turn it into a sleep over when it was time for me to drive them home. Not the smartest of choices during my nanny-free weekend, but they were having so much fun and were generally […]

Sometimes, you have the will to start, but just don’t have the right ideas. Whether you’re married, single or a-stay-at-home-mom; formally or self-employed, there are always bills or worn-out savings accounts that need our attention.   The reality is […]

7 month baby update

7 month baby update

Time for another baby update, we’re on 7 months! I think I forgot how busy babies can get once they think they’ve found their independence. Khumo has been sitting up by herself for about 2 months now and she is quickly heading towards the crawling and standing stage, she’s constantly on the go. It’s exhausting but also fun to see her fascination with the world.   She loves: “Standing” against […]

{Neo-natal care} Washing your hands could save your baby’s life

When you have a new baby, there are so many things you start to worry about and the health and well-being of your baby is probably at the top of that list.

Being a mom of two is harder than I thought

Being a mom of two is hard

Yazi I can’t help but feel that my parenting standards have dropped, being a mom of two is harder than I thought. Khumo turned 6 months two weeks ago (yes I know that haven’t done a baby update yet) and this marked a huge milestone in my life as much as in hers. I felt like I had achieved something quite significant, because it’s been a mess behind the scenes. Between […]
