I think many parents have thoughts about when is the best time to "try again." I know many women who have said they want a small age gap (they said this before giving birth) and then have done a 180 and said that wouldn't work. On the other hand, I have a few friends who want/have small age gaps and I've seen people really judge them for this decision. My colleague at work has a 1-year-old daughter and her and her husband have decided to start trying again now. She told me th
I feel as though this post may not contain as much cynical sarcasm as usual; brace yourselves. In all honesty this is probably the most personal blog I've written yet, hopefully it goes down well.
I think today if you were to say you have anxiety it would be like saying you're a human; it's everywhere. Many people in my family have it and I feel riddled with it, that reminds me of ticks; it seemed like an appropriate description. I am fortunate enough to have family member
Forgive me for the dramatic title, Google suggested click-baiting would bring me online success; hopefully, it works. Anyways, for any of you who don't know; I am a teacher. I currently teach age 12 and under, which isn't really my specialty as I usually teach teens-adults, but here we are. As I come to work every day and am faced with swarms of children from all different backgrounds and age groups, I must admit I feel exhausted just writing this post. In all honesty, I don'
Not that sex is the first thing most women are dying for after pushing out a baby; but it is still important and in all honesty most women would probably have thought about it or winced about it at some point before/after the baby has come/is coming. So I've decided to speak to some amazing mothers about what their thoughts and feelings were towards doing the deed after baby and how it went down... Not literally though; I assume that process doesn't need an explanation. I wan
I have been thinking about this question a lot recently. No Mam, not because I want babies yet; but because I wonder if there is ever really a right time to be a parent? Is there an ideal age? healthy window? financial level? I did watch a fascinating video on youtube about this exact concept and it was very humbling to see mothers and couples of all ages, statuses and financial bands figuring it all out themselves. If i'm honest living in Asia has made the idea of becoming a
Traveling in general can be a stressful task; remembering your passport, packing the right clothes and putting all your big liquids in the checked in bags are just a few of the minor things we need to do; now imagine that with kids/babies too. As a nervous flyer I can't imagine anything worse than getting on an aeroplane, but I bet some parents feel this way when they first travel with their baby/children. Below we have compiled the top tips from other mothers and parents to
Mom Shaming is an unnecessary aspect of being a mother/parents; when other mothers or just random/ordinary people judge and make comments about what you do/are doing as a parent. Not everyone may have experienced it, but those of you who have were not pleased after. For reference, where I'm from we call our mothers Mam and that's what'll be saying from now on, as saying mom is not the norm for me. I feel that the whole concept of Mam shaming has become so normal now; purely b
Considering I am a non parent and have yet to have my own children, I 100% have experienced awkward situations when misunderstandings and misconceptions have happened between me and parents; especially with family and friends that already have kids. First of all, as for me my intention is never to be ignorant and thoughtless. Thoughtless meaning saying anything to anyone, but I have to admit there have been times when I've said something and it's been taken the wrong way. As
