Breastfed toddler weaning success!

In my last post about why we still co-sleep at 2, I briefly touched on the fact that I am ready to wean Daniel. What I actually meant to say was – “I am so sick of breastfeeding now, and I just want all my body parts for myself.” I loved breastfeeding (most of the time), but after 18months I became a little resentful. Not toward my beloved of course, but he would wake up just for comfort.. because he could. It drove me insane. Not to mention inappropriately grabbing my boobs and asking in his unique way at the most inopportune times for a bit of HIS tieties. I was however… afraid of toddler weaning!

Interactive Toddler Books from Campbell {Children’s Book Review}

It’s no secret we are massive book fans, Daniel will not go to bed without a bedtime story! Currently we are only reading Daddy Long Legs and Cake before bed. Talking about books with your toddler is such an important part of cultivating their love for books in the long run. Apart from good habits, anything that keeps Daniel and Emilie away from the TV from a few extra minutes brings my heart much joy! Couple good habits with a book that not only teaches them to love reading, but acts as an interactive link so that they too can take part in the story and you have a winner!

Calling all Sports Moms! Team Up and WIN with BOS Sport!

When I became a mother, one of the main things I wanted to be was your typical – “Soccer Mom”. You know the ones I mean – racing off between sports, practices and matches. Maybe it was because my parents worked a lot and it was something I valued? But I ended up not being that mom. (Waaaap waaaap waaahhhh) Not because my hearts not in it, my work and lifestyle don’t always allow for the freedom you need as a “soccer mom”. That doesn’t mean however that I don’t encourage Emilie to play and take part in sport! Emilie LOVES being outdoors and playing sports is something she really enjoys. She plays all the sports she possibly can, even though she isn’t really in the A Team’s for any of them.

Where is everyone going? Most popular destinations for South Africans!

When I was a little girl, Sunday’s were my favourite days! It meant that my dad took our family for a drive along the marine, we would get ice cream and then we would go park at the airport and watch as the planes flew off into the clouds. My dad would play all our favourite tracks, and as we watched, my sister and I would make up stories about who was on each flight and where they were going and why. Our most popular destinations, of course, were of our favourite places, for the craziest reasons!
