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

Everything was going swimmingly these school holidays. And then someone called someone else a fuck. And then I drank all the wine. The end. 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

This post is in honour of a baby girl stillborn six years ago today. It contains words and pictures that some may find triggering. It was early yesterday morning. Too early and I crawled onto the couch and snuggled up to Ziggy who was watching TV in his pyjamas. My... 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

So here I was thinking that today was World Middle Child Day and wouldn't that be the perfect time to write a little something about my very own middle child, my Ziggy. Then I discovered it was actually yesterday. Oh. No matter. It's high time we had a chat about... Continue reading

Thank god for phones with cameras. I love my SLR but sometimes it's all too much trouble to get it out. And unless I hang around holding it, it's not particularly convenient for catching a random moment. Yes, it takes much better photos but the reality is that without my... Continue reading

I can see them now. Half a dozen women sitting around the kitchen table, sipping on refreshments as the sunlight streams through a nearby window catching the silvery white of their hair. Someone makes a joke and as we watch the group erupt into gales of laughter, we know, we... Continue reading

At bedtime a few nights back, he read to me. One minute, you're marvelling at how tiny a human fingernail can be and the next, those same fingers, now permanently grubby under the nails, are turning the pages of Mr Worry and your tiny fingernailed baby is reading all the... Continue reading

I recently turned down the chance to make $1500 for a day’s work. I turned it down because of pride; because of how I might be treated during the work; because of how other people on that job might view me; because someone might recognise me later. I turned it... Continue reading

Almost as good as reading yourself: seeing your kids reading How good is reading? Of all the things I wish I had more time to selfishly pursue, I think books would be number one. Yes, I love shopping and massages, and I imagine getting your nails done must be lovely... Continue reading
