I feel like I’m on a bit of a “hair” wave these last few weeks. It’s been insane! First cutting my son’s cute little afro, and then discovering an amazing solution that just sorts all of my kids “neatness” issues out. Now, I’ve just made my appointment to have my hair cut later this week! Now, I’ve been doing the Brazilian Keratin treatment to make my awesome afro sleek and straight so that I could embrace my inner Kardahsian……. let’s just say I’m over it!

I don’t know about you, but I have moments when I just strategise what I’d do should a tragedy happen. Have you ever done that? Now, don’t get me wrong – it’s not in a “fear the worst” kind of way – it’s more like, “let’s just have a plan in case” kind of way. Now, before you think I’ve got some sort of problem that I’m trying to work through – I’m actually wanting to actually do what I’ve always wanted to do because of my “strategy plan”. Continue reading “Strategy in case of a “Disaster””
Good morning. (Imagine a yawn and a gentle rub of my eyes) Mondays are what they are – aren’t they? So, let me start this week with something that was incredibly exciting for me – as a mom – that happened last week. I bet whatever you’re thinking, you’re probably wrong 😀 This is when I really wish there was a way for me to make you wait, and I could insert like dramatic music and stuff…….. a video log might have been better – ok! Stop it! I’m losing focus.
I’ve been meaning to get this video up onto the interweb but I really wanted to have the intro attached to it as well. You know – to make it all authentic and “real” youtuby.
So, here we have it. I decided a few weeks ago that I’d had enough of trying to maintain my son’s afro and forever worry about how to get a comb or brush through the dreadlock growing on the back of his head. Continue reading “Jude’s first hair cut with clippers”
I woke up this morning and scrolled through my facebook (as most of us do before rolling out of bed) and I noticed the hashtag #metoo has been imprinted on so many profiles, tweets and instagram pics. Ok, I know this world is sick – but wow! There are so many souls that have been scarred by self gratifying idiots. Continue reading “#metoo – How do I make a difference?”
It’s Monday – whoop dee doo! Once again I find myself looking forward into my week and I’m slapping the side of my face asking myself – “what do I write about?” There is so much happening in our life right now, that to actually zone in and write about it, is proving to be extremely difficult – why? I hear you ask. Wouldn’t it be just brain-dead easy to document everything and share it with the world…… oh my dear friends – if only it were that simple. Continue reading “Comparison will eat you up”
I’m feeling so bone lazy about this blog thing that it’s getting seriously annoying. Note: this is myself talking to myself here. Lol. Anyway, the day came and went and as we always know – nothing’s changed except the number in the “age” box.
I was chatting to a friend when she called and said, “I may be 35 on paper but I’m seriously stuck at 22”. She’s like, “don’t push it, 28 is more realistic!”. Continue reading “10 things I’ve learned and am grateful for, after turning 35”
Ok, I’m probably going to be like, majorly nostalgic in this one. This week builds up to the day I turn 35. Plus I’ve had one of those weekends of rehashing memories and just facing my “younger” self, all over again. Birthday’s do this to me, I honestly don’t know why. This whole process might explain why I don’t really like to make a big deal about them for myself. It’s weird, since I’m an extrovert. Continue reading “Don’t you wish you could just go back?”
Its fascinating to me, just how being human is such hard work. You know when you want to do things right? I find it fascinating because, as much as it feels so good to do things right, doing things the “wrong” way also has the other type of “good feeling”. I say this in light of what I wrote about here. You know when you hit a slump and become sluggish and lazy – It’s kind of an awesome feeling in itself, BUT getting things right and achieving is harder work but a way better feeling than the “bummed out” one. Continue reading “Good choices vs Bad choices – How they make me feel……”
Today marks the Monday after 4 weeks of constant talk from my 10 year old about her birthday party. It came, it happened, it’s over and needless to say – I’m so proud of myself. I know that you’re not supposed to really toot your own horn – but I did this one right and I was smiling on the other side of it rather than cowering in tears in some corner regretting the aftermath and the mediocre response to all of my efforts.
