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

Motherhood will beat you down but if you had your time again, you'd do it all again. With a live-in nanny. Continue reading

I don’t remember making a conscious choice about co-sleeping. I was never particularly for or against. In fact, the only thing I was truly and deeply for was SLEEP – and for this reason, I was willing to do whatever worked. With all three of my babies, that involved middle... Continue reading

And if that title didn't have you rushing to click through, I don't know what would. But this is the sad and true fact of life in my house right now. You suffer through winter, a few of you get Influenza B, it's god-awful, but you get through it. Spring... Continue reading

Tahnee, our wedding photographer, is amazing. She has an eye for capturing organic moments. The sneak peek of our wedding photos proved to me that Tahnee had completely nailed the brief which was basically "just do what you do." But in a sea of wedding photographers, the reason I chose...

In a world where little girls are still sold aspirational characters who are predominantly pretty and sweet, DC Super Hero Girls offers a new narrative where girls can be heroes, too. Continue reading

Around this time every year, I find myself lamenting a lack of funds. I use phrases like "flat broke" to describe our financial situation. And while everything is relative, the reality is that we are not flat broke and lack of funds means we probably won't get the family iPad... Continue reading

Does that title sound god-awful? I know it. But when the world in general feels darker than usual, the antidote is not to stay frozen with fear. Reading (or writing) hateful opinions on social media will not bring the peace we seek. We are the light. You and me. All... Continue reading

This winter was, in a word, bullshit. It was cold outside and I felt cold inside, and if that sounds overly dramatic, well, DEAL WITH IT, because I don't like to be cold - literally or figuratively. And this winter I was numb with both. It was around this time... Continue reading

So I've been meaning to write this post for a while. Weirdly, I seemed to procrastinate wildly whenever the idea of publishing a post featuring photos of me in my undies came up. Oh, would you look at that? There are dishes to do and toilets to clean! Time got... Continue reading

Hello, people who read my blog! I can't even believe any of you are still here given my inability to string sentences together lately. I have been anywhere but here and I blame the wedding squarely. Of course, it was all worth it and my god, I would do it... Continue reading

Hello from married land! Strangely, it feels much like unmarried land except more awesome because we just crossed off a major item on the To-Do list. The list where nothing ever gets crossed off! It's still a stupidly long list, but this momentous and expensive to-do is ta-DONE! Our lovely... Continue reading

The thing about mental illness is that you can be travelling along in your every day life largely unaware that the wheels are falling off. I am a mum of three, a human being with various ambitions outside of motherhood and never enough time to feel like I can be... Continue reading

Sometimes in the early hours of a Sunday morning, in those hours just before dawn that we waste by doing things like sleeping, I like to hear tone deaf neighbours sing. In fact, if it were up to me, I'd choose a bunch of inebriated males, possibly celebrating the end... Continue reading

There is, I am convinced, no picture that conveys in all its dreadfulness, a vision of sorrow, despairing, remediless, supreme. If I could paint such a picture, the canvas would show only a woman looking down at her empty arms. Continue reading

On October 11, 2014, after many years of faithful service, I finally gave my boobs the gold watch they’ve worked so tirelessly to earn. If my boobs were not desperate to retire, I certainly was. I suppose my original plan for breastfeeding was to make it to 12 months but... Continue reading
