When siblings fight

The next thing that annoys me the most apart from unreasonable tantrums is sibling fights. It’s natural to want to step in immediately and stop the fight (whatever it is) or assume that it’s the older sibling’s fault. Step back and observe. Let the children learn to solve their own conflicts and step in when… Continue reading When siblings fight

Hobbies & Discipline

I’ve been recuperating. Daily grind of motherhood & being a SAHM of two boys left me with a huge writer’s block. We’ve been maid-less & car-free for four months going on to five. The brutal truth is that being a SAHM with zero help can be an extremely isolating, mentally exhausting task. It took me… Continue reading Hobbies & Discipline

When Play Is The Highest Form Of Research

So, recently, I did a little social experiment with my boys. I removed 80% of all the toys lying around the house just to see how the boys adapt to having little toys. Before that were tonnes of toys lying around in every corner, 5-6 Montessori activities on their shelves, a pile of art stuff… Continue reading When Play Is The Highest Form Of Research

Every day is an adventure waiting to happen

Evan is growing up to be quite a bubbly wee explorer and the world (in this case, our neighbourhood) is his oyster! After breakfast, he’d drag me to the shoe rack and in his baby language, pester me to put on his shoes. “Go!” he would babble with such persistence until we all got ready… Continue reading Every day is an adventure waiting to happen

Moments When You Doubt There’s Even A Light At The End Of The Tunnel

Motherhood. It brings out the best of you. It brings out the worst of you. Where was I the last 3 weeks? I’d been to hell and back. (Ok, I exaggerated a little but you get the idea.) I had to battle my own medical pains & a wave of ffc (fever, flu, cough) in… Continue reading Moments When You Doubt There’s Even A Light At The End Of The Tunnel
