A Better Spouse Than Me

A Better Spouse Than Me

  One of the things that my husband and I have been very firm on since we married was this; not disparaging our spouse to anyone else. That means that at my husband’s workplace he doesn’t join in and complain about his wife when other colleagues are sharing, and sympathising, over the actions of their […]

A Haven For Hubby

A Haven For Hubby

I’m something of a voracious reader – no secret there I guess – but once in a while I read something that really makes me stop and think. Most recently that was an article about the number one thing all men need. And no, it’s not what you’re thinking. Yes men are more non-verbal creatures […]

How Do I Do It with SIX Under SIX?

How Do I Do It with SIX Under SIX?

  I have six awesome little kiddies, all under the age of six. A five-year-old boy with mild autism or what I like to call ‘superpowers’, a delightful four-year-old daughter, a very energetic three-year-old boy, mischievous nearly two-year-old twin boys and a precious 6-month old girl. People often ask me, ‘how do you do it?’, […]

If I Am To Get To Heaven

  EXPECTATIONS EXPECTATIONS EXPECTATIONS!! How many times have we let our expectations get the better of us?? The problem is, you may not even realise you are doing it. I had an interesting realisation this past weekend about expectations. I noticed I tend to fight more with my husband on the weekend, while week days […]

Men...Women, Are We So Different?

Men…Women, Are We So Different?

I asked my husband over dinner, what is the difference between you and me? As in between men and women? He quite readily came up with a list! He said that men are… More visual More selfish Stronger They don’t like to share their feelings They communicate via doing things (side by side not face to […]

The Pregnancy Monster

The Pregnancy Monster

  Looking through my computer, I found an old article I wrote last year when I realised I was pregnant with my fourth and was a little nervous because of the hormones I experienced in previous pregnancies. I thought I would share it for a laugh.. *** The Pregnancy Monster I decided to write this […]

Honey, I’m Home!

Honey, I’m Home!

   Sometimes when life gets busy, we can fall into a little trap. A trap of having everything a little too ‘practical’. When this happens we tend to fit people in to part of a routine, a schedule. This unfortunately includes the ones we love the most. When your husband gets home from work, how […]

Help! Hubby Is Annoyed!

Help! Hubby Is Annoyed!

  You forgot something from the grocery store he asked you to get… the kids painted on the walls because you took a longer shower than usual… you scratched the car (OH BOY!) We have all been there. Our hubby gets annoyed at us for some reason or other. Was it our fault? Maybe? Partially? […]
