This is my story. About being a mumma. And being little. Because, by all accounts, I am both. A vertically challenged mother of two (who is crazy original with the blog names).
Interests: Eating a meal while it's still warm, going to the toilet alone, drinking wine through a funnel

You know when a parent posts a video on social media saying, "OMG, our little Johnny is sooooo funny! LOL!" and then you watch it and you're like, "Dude, I didn't even laugh once"? Listen, I don't judge. I look back at photos of my newborns who I was certain... Continue reading

People will tell you it's too late to change. People will tell you work is work, you're not meant to love it. But governments want us to work into our seventies - I say you HAVE to love your job (or at least like it). Life is too damned short to be desperately unhappy every day. But it's plenty long enough to change your mind, reinvent yourself and realise dreams. Continue reading

Confession: when I used to dream about motherhood, it never looked like this. Back then, I was also imagining my life as a successful actor with a busy career and lots of help raising any kids that I had. In short, I never thought I'd do it all myself. Even... Continue reading

After spending a weekend away from the kids for the first time in more than 6 years, one thing has become crystal clear; I have been in the ‘burbs for too long. We flew to Sydney for the wedding of my brother-in-law and his beautiful new wife. Arriving in Sydney,... Continue reading

Image by Young and Percival All quiet on the blog front. Sorry about that. But I gave up Coke, didya know? Yeah. I did. And so I have been wading through the various turmoils that go with breaking a serious addiction. Yes, that's what a nutritionist called my 3 cans... Continue reading

When Luca was newborn, it awakened the poet in me. Each day, my heart wrote sonnets for this baby boy. For a whole year, we were a love song duet. I can't remember ever being happier. When Ziggy arrived almost two and half years later, the exhaustion of motherhood felt... Continue reading

This is a sponsored post for Europcar Australia Christmas 2013. We were driving from Melbourne to Sydney. 10+ hours in the vehicle. With three children. How hard could it be? Well, we assumed it would be quite hard and so we took what we thought were excellent precautionary measures. We... Continue reading

{Source} At my very worst, I would wish to fall. Walking down the stairs at work, I thought maybe if I just missed a step, tumbled to the bottom, I could rest a while. I was 24 years old and I was exhausted. I thought having an accident, perhaps breaking... Continue reading

So I’m really uptight about carseats for kids. In particular, I am uptight about them being installed properly. Naturally, I’m worried about safety and also, about Bren getting it right. Poor Bren. He is actually a very competent human being, but his competency is no match for my uptightness. And... Continue reading
