When it’s all said and done…it’s time for 2021

As so many of us are getting ready to close the door on a year that has pretty much, ripped our hearts out and flipped them over and thrown it back in again – I wanted to come on here and just put down my thoughts and gratitude for 2020.

At the end of every year, our family continue with a tradition that we like to call “highlights and low lights”. We do it at every dinner table meal we have at the end of as many days as we are able to. It allows us, as a family to view the world from the eyes of another and to look outside of ourselves and appreciate what another values and has been hurt by. So to culminate the year, we do it at the end of the year as well as a huge summary.

Magical Chaos – spinning through the Chrysalis of Adolescence with our Daughters’

This is it! I’m finally getting what’s been in my heart out onto a page for all of you to read and journey with me…… or should I say us?…… through.

I remember when I was a new parent, even a newlywed, having all of these incredible women around me that I could look up to and ask questions and tap into for the knowledge I needed for those very precious new moments in my life. Those women have always been there, even to this day and I value their experience and their advice, input and example. They have helped shape my thinking as a wife, mom and woman.

Why the silence? I’m back and here’s why….

As you can probably assume based on the date of my previous post – it has been a really long time since I have written anything on this precious little space of mine. Yup, even I look at the date and wonder – what happened? I feel like I’ve ghosted myself. #facepalm Continue reading “Why the silence? I’m back and here’s why….”

“The Greatest Showman” bug has bit our home

I’m not the type of mom to take my kids to the movies as soon as they come out. It’s a waste for me right now because my three year old isn’t predictable enough yet. So there are so many wonderful movies that we’d love to catch up on but can’t because they’re not quite “out” to the public yet.

But, my kids have friends that have been raving about the movie “The Greatest Showman” for some time now. Continue reading ““The Greatest Showman” bug has bit our home”

Feder Valentines Day tradition

It’s nearing to the end of February and the “month of love” is starting to slowly turn into bunnies and chocolate focus. I’m all for a holiday or a day that turns me towards chocolate. Yes, Hi – my name is Shaveh and I’m a chocoholic. I’m slowly starting to train myself to enjoy more refined tastes of it because, this sister isn’t getting any younger. Plus my gutt just hates me when I put sugary things into it now because baby number 3 ruined that for me. But I will continue to force it in there because, come on! It just tastes SO GOOD!!!

My husband’s Patience added Value to another part of “me”

A few weeks ago I wrote about the different Mom “me’s”. It’s honestly the craziest journey to hold all of the “me’s” together and somehow put up some form of ‘normal’ in each scenario. All of this ‘holding together’ while trying to actually discover what each part means and whether they should actually be up front in this current “scene” in my life’s play.  Continue reading “My husband’s Patience added Value to another part of “me””

Figuring out my kids’ Love Languages

Some of you might not even know what a love language is. So before I dive down deep into my kids and the way they speak to us through these “languages”, I’ll briefly summarise what they are.  Continue reading “Figuring out my kids’ Love Languages”

What being married has taught me

So yesterday my hubby and I marked 12 years in our marriage belt. I honestly feel like I’ve been married for longer, but 12 still feels really good to say. But what’s really awesome (and wasn’t planned at all this way) is that we share our anniversary with my grandparents who have been married for 62 years. 62 years, just let that sink in a bit…..
