Black Panther bares all on DVD and Blu-Ray {+ WIN!}

Black Panther was one of those movies that if you weren’t planning to see it, after a day or so of it’s release, you had a sudden change of heart! Our household (and by this I mean my husband) are HUGE Marvel fans. I’ve mentioned previously, he is just one of those guys who finds comfort in the geekier things in life. It’s one of the things I enjoy most about him! I’ve learnt so much about the Marvel Universe and once you do, you can’t help but want to know it all!

12 years a mom – here’s what I’ve learnt

Motherhood is something that if I’m honest, I was never prepared for. None of us are though, right? You see though, I wasn’t the type of girl who imagined playing dolls with my child one day. I didn’t want the responsibilities and I didn’t yearn for the title. Perhaps that is why God took it upon himself to intervene and I fell pregnant at 19. Well God, and my own recklessness. At the time, I didn’t think it was best for me and my plans. Hindsight, however, is twenty-twenty and I have learnt so much. It was and is best, the best!

World Chocolate Day with Oreo Enrobed!

When Oreo took the world by storm with their absolutely adorable ad with the little boy enticing his Labrador. Teaching him how to eat an Oreo, I know you remember it. “First you twist it, then you lick it, then you dunk it…” I don’t know a single person who didn’t eat an Oreo that way, just because the ad was so well done. Last year for World Chocolate Day (7 July) Oreo got a little better, a little sweeter and that much more enticing by introducing Oreo Enrobed.

It takes a village – surrender to it!

This last month has been so insane, to a point where I felt like someone was going to jump out and be like “Ha! We got you – smile for the camera”. No such luck yet though – but the jury is still out, so it could be still coming. As a family we have been to see our Dr 7 times in the month of June. I like the number 7, but going to the Dr that many times is a little draining. Okay very draining! What I didn’t mention when I wrote the post about Motherhood kicking my ass, was that although I was really struggling – I did have help.

Support.

What to do when you are stuck in the house with a “GermFest”!

Reading the title of this post, most of you must be thinking, other than sleep? Nothing! Then again, moms know different. Even when you are sick, and everyone in your house is sick. Life needs to go on. Toddlers and preteens are rarely as tired as we require them to be in these times right? And of course, the show must go on! This last month, our house was invaded by a bunch of really sticky germs. Although we were home-bound (aka stuck in the house), we managed to make it fun. And this without too much input from the TV!
