Every word matters, speak kindly 💕 . . Sometimes during the most difficult situations it's amazing how one act of kindness shines brighter than ever. 🥀 . . We've struggled all night to put our Son to sleep, but still found something to smile about through the sleep deprived night. 👩‍❤️‍👨💤 . .

⚠️ SLEEP POLL RESULTS: Last night I asked some questions on my Instastories about night time routines, as often we as mothers feel isolated in our decisions. We are constantly comparing our way of doing things to others. Bedtime is such a controversial topic- the good old argument about sleeping in your bed vs sleeping in theirs. And how they get to sleep- do you lie with them until they’re in dreamland or do you leave them to fall asleep 💤 on their own? +- 200 of you voted and the results were: 65% sleep in own bed. 65% of your kiddos are NOT sleeping through the entire night with no wake ups. 67% of us are lying with our kiddos or rocking them until they fall asleep. 😴 So no one is alone. We are all in it together! And we are also all pretty exhausted 🧟‍♀️. . . . #momlife #momsofinstagram #momsupportingmoms #momsupport #momtribe #sleepingbeauty #sleepingbaby #sleepingtoddler #samomblogger #ctmomblogger #thatsdarling #momphotographer #sleeproutine #bedtimeroutine

Are milk baths still trendy? I'm not sure but I thought I'd take a shot at it anyway because they always look so darn sweet. I plonked one of Arias favourite snacks in to keep her happy: @clemengold 🍊 Available exclusively at @woolworths_sa , these delicious citrus fruits are sweet and juicy but best of all, almost always seedless. They're a total win in our home🏡 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #milkbath #milkbathphotography #ariarae #milkbathsession #toddlersofinstagram #toddlerlife #thatsdarling #thehappynow #momswithcameras #flashesofdelight #mascaraandmimosas #letthembelittle #honestmotherhood #toddlermom #pursuepretty #motherhood #momsofinstagram #mommyblogger #samomblogger #milkbathbaby #livethelittlethings #milkbathphotos #samombloggers

I'm in love with the Sweet Chai Almonds that I got from the @wellnesswarehouse. With Husband working through the night to compose his music, and me working from home during the day, snacks are a must! I can live on chips daily but opting for popcorn and nuts are the better options. What healthy snacks do you prefer? 😀🙏 #LiveLifeWell #WELLNESSWONDERWOMAN #sponsored #entrepreneurlife #freelancing #hustlehard #bosslady #goingnuts #snacktime #foodie #foodporn #foodstagram #bloggingmom #samomblogger #pblogger #SouthAfrica #momblogger

Finally picked up my @pegasus_homeopathics blue box! I’m trying to steer my family clear of antibiotics unless entirely necessary and that means using homeopathic methods when we get sick. This blue box by Pagasus Homeopathics is a kit that every home should have. The kit has remedies for 28 ailments from insect bites, sinusitis, diarrhea, vomiting, colds & flu to travel sickness and injuries. I’m looking forward to sharing these remedies with you as and when I need them. I will be posting weekly about each remedy. . . . . . #homeopathy #homeopathic #thebluebox #homeopathicremedy #motherhoodunplugged #dailyparenting #teammotherly #southafricanblogger #momboss #blogger #healthymoms #momssupportingmoms #stopdropandmom #familyfirst #healthyfamily #brandcollaboration #healthyfamilies #samomblogger #capetownmom #wahmlife #snapshot #simplymamahood #mamatribe #lifewithtoddlers #family #simplymamhood #lifeasmama #momcommunity #raisingmytribe #thisismotherhood

Watching too much Peppa Pig on YouTube has my two-year-old daughter telling me she needs to go to the doctor if she fell on her bum or if she has a cough. Today she's off sick - at home with me because she has a bit of a cold. Again, I'm told that she must go to the doctor 😀🙏 We're okay, it's just a little cough and a runny nose. And working from home has its benefits - I don't feel guilty about taking a break today. #toddlerhood #toddlerlife #winterblues #momofalittlegirl #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #toddlermom #toddler #bloggingmom #samomblogger #pblogger #SouthAfrica #momblogger

Jack is my third child, my second son but the first baby I bonded with immediately. My oldest and I had a turbulent 3 months when he was born, I was young, alone and had absolutely no idea what I was doing. My second was an easy baby but I was in an unhealthy relationship and disconnected. I have good relationships with them both now. But when Jack was born, the bond was instant. I felt like I knew him and what he needed. My relationship with him has always been easy. Isn't parenting a strange thing? I love all my children fiercely but my relationship with them has been so different. If you have more than one child, have you experienced this? #littlepiecesofchildhood #momsofinstagram #momlife #mom #bloggerlife #momitforward #littleandbrave #storytellingmama #dailyparenting #acupofmotherhood #stopdropandmom #thehappynow #celebratechildhood #childhoodeveryday #themommydiary #momlifeisthebestlife #momlifestyle #thatsdarling #bestofmom #mybeautifulmess #bedeeplyrooted #momswithcameras #ohheymamas #ig_motherhood #familyfirst #nestingly #mytinytribe #familyforever #samomblogger #harassedmom
A few things happen every weekend that make me incredibly happy: 1) every morning Soph makes a Christmas bed on the lounge floor 2) Grace and Regan take simultaneous naps which gives Sophie and I 3 hours to just hang out by ourselves This weekend was one of those seriously precious family weekends. It was freezing cold. There were major cuddle opportunities and I had a book to finish. Now. It's Sunday evening. Hair needs to be washed, bags need to be packed and the tantrums are springing up like freaking wildfire. So I hold onto the moments that came before. The ones that are filled with cuddles and giggles and games. Because the Lord knows, my heart may be full but come Sunday night, my patience tank is running precious low.
If not, why not? It’s not often that I get the house for myself and when it happens I make the most of it. I spent some time behind my pc, looking at some new fashion trends with #springintheair and then decided to take a long hot bath. Whilst my water was running I decided to spoil my face 😄 I used this #apricotscrubmask from @clicks_sa and it smells divine. Like I want to eat my face. Tomorrow is a new week with it’s own #todolists and challenges. Embrace those moments you have to yourself, pamper yourself and prepare yourself for the moment the little peeps return. #selflove Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We were freezing, but spring is around the corner so who is complaining? Not me.
Someone fell and bumped her head. There’s a super blue mark on her forehead but she’s more than great. Also I love the @babydovecare bum cream because of it’s rounded edge. Harper can bite on it without me worrying about her cutting her mouth. #babydovecare #southafricanmombloggers #southafricanmommyblogger #samomblogger #capetownblogger #mommyblogger #10monthsold #babydovesa #mullerkids

Isn't it amazing how we can be total strangers as women but the moment we discover we are moms we get an instant connection and we can chat endlessly about our kids and the realness of #momlife ? . We all go through A LOT and it does so much to have another woman listen and share her own personal stories. . Sending cyber love to all the moms out there, we might look and sound different but we have so much in common.
Turn up the VOLUME please!!! That’s all I want to be able to do with my hair but sadly when I do my own hair it always turns out flat and hanging which is super boring. 2 weeks ago I had a trim and little bit of highlights at the salon and when I walked out of there my hair looked amazing full of volume. But once I got home and washed and dried it myself it didn’t look anything like when my stylist did it lol. But now there’s hope for me. @beauty_bulletin sent me the entire @johnfriedasouthafrica luxurious volume range to try out and see if it can work for my fine hair. So let’s see, going to try it out and will share a review with some before & after pics!

During these days of Hajj, I am overwhelmed by nostalgic memories from my own Hajj journey three years ago (the year of the Collapsing Crane and the Stampede in Mina). I found these two books, for kids and adults, relevant for the Hajj period. . Yan’s Hajj by Fawzia Gilani is such a heartwarming tale that explains the essence of Hajj to kids in a beautiful way. I love that Yan’s journey of Hajj started when he was a young man and only came to fruition when he was an old man. I think that’s the reality for the majority of Muslims who make the intention to embark on Hajj. It also emphasizes characteristics such as being patient, being kind, and putting the needs of others first, in order to gain closeness to our creator. The wonderful illustrations render this book a modern-day Islamic classic and it is a must-have in every home. . One Thousand Roads to Mecca: Ten Centuries of Travelers Writing About the Muslim Pilgrimage, edited by Michael Wolfe, is a compilation of 25 individual accounts of the Hajj journey spanning a thousand years. It is amazing how over this period, how much of the landscape of Makkah has changed yet how nothing of the rites of the actual pilgrimage has changed. The book is divided into five parts and arranged chronologically starting with stories from the Islamic Middle Ages (1050-1360) right until the The Jet Age Hajj (1947-2000). Writers ranging from the East and West, including the famous Moroccan traveler and scholar, Ibn Battuta, and activist Malcolm X, share their accounts of their Hajj journey, giving the reader a direct slice of history that one (especially if you have been on Hajj already) can identify with in detail. Whether you have been for Hajj or not, this is definitely worth reading. I am currently in the midst of it and really enjoying it. I got my copy of Yan’s Hajj from @suhaylakids and my copy of One Thousand Roads to Mecca is an @amazonkindle book. . #southafricanblogger #durbanblogger #muslimahblogger #momblogs #momblogger #samomblogger #instamom #momswhoblog #hajj2018 #yanshajj #books #bookstagram #instabooks #booksofinstagram #bookreview #kindlebooks #kindle #kindlelove #instabooks #childrensliterature #kidlit

Does anyone else have a dining room table with an identity crisis? Ours wears many hats.... A bit of Saturday morning chaos. Our dining room table is such a mess. It's the craft table, the eating table, the work table, the laundry sorting station and often its just the dumping ground for flowers, flings and all the remotes. I've secretly always wanted a carefully considered home where everything is always perfect and beautiful and each piece has its place but with 2 little kiddos, chaos is inevitable. Swipe to see a picture of Sophie being a total poser with our fresh roses 👉🏽

This is the weather that we’ve have woken up to in #mpumalanga ... ❄️ It has inspired me to continue with the #intentionallivingchallenge by @momoftwolittlegirls. She didn’t say it had to be 7 consecutive days, right? 😉 ❄️ The theme for Day 4 is #Motivation . The reason that this freezing, misty, wet and windy weather is my image for Motivation is that #SuperDad and Wade have gone out on a 5km hike this morning. In this weather. ❄️ Wade, who is all of 9 years old, is a super #crosscountry runner and all round sports nut. This year he has made up his mind that he wants to go all the way to SA Championships and his motivation, his never-give-up attitude is such an inspiration to me. ❄️ I have always tried to teach him never to give up and to see how he truly lives this motto of ours in every part of his life is incredible. He motivates me to keep going too.
Girl mom's, do you find there is more internal pressure when raising girls? I feel with my girls there is more to teach them like, ➡️How to be strong. ➡️How to stand up for themselves. ➡️Not to listen when people say they can't because they are a girl. ➡️How to physically protect themselves. ➡️What to do when I man pinches their bum in the supermarket. ➡️How to deal with criticism. ➡️How to be their own shade of beautiful in a world telling them to confirm. ➡️How to deal with men who are threatened by your strength. This is just some of the things. Some days it feels overwhelming and as we prepare to send Kiara out into the world I worry more and more about how well I have equipped her. Girl mom's, how are you all doing? 👧 #iammom #mommin #mothers #kindnessmatters #raisingkindkids #raisethemkind #madeyousmile #joyfulmamas #momentsinmotherhood #powerfulwomen #motherhoodthroughinstagram #mysunshine #candidkids #candidchildhood #lifedailymoms #handsfullheartfull #myheartisfull #postpartum #mommylife #mamastrong #mamabear #momssupportingmoms #momsbelike #momvibes #sharetheeverymom #realmomlife #harassedmom #samomblogger

One day I will see my feet again 😍 I actually just discovered that my socks are mismatched but after all the time it takes to get them on - that's totally OK! 😊 At 34 weeks I'm very grateful for a husband who trims my toenails, reminds me everyday to take my vitamins and is big and strong enough to lift me off the couch 💪 and who's slippers I can slip on instead of my own because they're so big and I don't have to lift my feet to tug them on! #itsthelittlethings ❤️😘🤗 @r3aperza Reminder: When a man finds a wife, he has found a treasure!

The box is loaded with goodies, check out my stories for more. My life is changed you guys. Cheese delivered to my door! Is this heaven? 😍 🧀 🍷 😋

We’ve got our Friday faces on and we’re ready for the weekend. Bring it on! I’m looking forward to resting and getting some admin sorted out this weekend. . . . We’d like to try have a family movie night with Lukhanyo again, any toddler friendly movie recommendations? The only movie he’s watched and loved is Finding Nemo. . . . Have a lovely weekend . . . . . #Babywearing #Toddlerwearing #WearAllTheBabies #OurCandidLife #AttachementParenting . . . . .

So, I've been thinking about getting a branded shirt or cap with my blog name on it. You know, to get attention and to look professional - have something that says I'm going the extra mile for my brand. The thing is, I don't know how I want my brand's look and feel to look like. Anyway, I'm going to get business cards printed from @printspace.co.za and since I don't know what I want, I've asked Ian (the owner) to design my cards for me. It's pretty much going to a hair salon and telling the hairdresser "you can surprise me". 😂 The little input I gave is that I want a certain logo on it. In a few days, I'll get the reveal. Can't wait! #entrepreneurlife #freelancing #hustlehard #bosslady #bloggingmom #samomblogger #pblogger #SouthAfrica #momblogger #freelancewritervibes
