Last year I was going through a tough time with a 2 year old and a new born. It was embarrassing to be out with other mums and have Isaiah scream the house down for different, random, pointless reasons. I felt judged by other mums and felt like I was doing a terrible job as a mum. I prayed to the Lord, saying ‘Lord, may…

pregnancy after loss

When I found out I was first pregnant I wrote a letter to our future baby. I wrote about the fun we would had and that I couldn’t wait to meet him/her and learn all about them. Only a month later I was holding that letter in my hands, grieving the loss of our baby. I didn’t know what to do with the letter. It…

I’m sure you’ve all seen the viral video over the past few days where a husband surprises his wife by telling her she’s pregnant. It’s pretty cute and it may be one of the most viewed pregnancy videos out there with over 9 million people watching it. Days later they had the devastating news that their baby had gone to be with the Lord. They…

Toddlers can be a lot of fun… They’re entertaining, they can make you feel special, and they’re really cute! Toddlers are also selfish, immature and poop in their pants. (take it from a mum who is currently toilet training her two year old) So how do you know if that cute guy who has your attention is a man, or still a toddler? Here are…

If you’ve got a friend going through infertility or miscarriage, here are 9 things you need to know… ‘She said ‘I’m so sorry and hate that you’re having to deal with the pain of losing a child’ and then gave me a big hug. The long bear hug kind. It’s easily the most understood and loved I felt when the pain was still raw. I…


One Small Step for God, one giant leap for mankind

‘Houston, we have a problem…’ I was at the playground the other day with my 2 year old. He was climbing down a ladder and even though the bars were easy for him to reach, the last step to the ground was just a too far for his little legs. I watched him from a distance as his foot searched for the ground. After a…

Stop building bridges over puddles

Picture this… You’re driving down the road and you see 6 construction workers standing around a tiny pot hole. You wander over to see what’s going on. They’re having a big meeting. There’s a bunch of graphs and plans, it looks intense. The workers finish their meeting and get straight into it. You suddenly realise what they’re doing…they’re building a bridge. You think to yourself, …

1. If I can’t find a clean pair of socks for my baby and while i’m out someone comments on his bare feet I look and say ‘ah man, he was wearing them when we got out of the car, they must have fallen off’. 2. I heard my toddler hiding in the pantry eating chips out of the bag before breakfast and instead of…


When God’s timing is different to ours

People can be really dumb.. ‘Maybe you’re not trying hard enough’… ‘Don’t you want to have kids?’… ‘You should just hurry up and have babies’. You may have heard these same kinds of things; often from well meaning people, usually from those who don’t really know what to say.   2 years into marriage we decided to start trying for babies. I remember when we…

I remember a few days into being new parents, while our new born was crying my husband turned to me and asked, “What does he want?”, to which i replied, “I don’t know, I just met the kid!”. When Zi was born he had to be monitored for 4 hours so I spent the first 4 and a bit hours of his life waiting in…
