We Provide Support For Mums
I have been a mum for almost 12 years. My children were born 2007, (2009-2011), 2012, 2013. With four kids, lots of reading and researching and practicing the art of motherhood, finding friends in alien lands, pursuing my hobbies and staying sane… I’ve got lots to tell you here.
I have been newly married in a new country… to newly pregnant with no relatives or friends… I’ve moved to a new city and house hunted at 34weeks pregnant… Delivered through an emergency C-section… I’ve always juggled two kids under two… I know what it is like to go School shopping for one child while expecting another one … what being seriously ill and pregnant means… how to entertain kids while on bed rest… I am a pro at losing post pregnancy weight!
If it is Potty training trouble… Moving beds… Big kid … discipline that works… Summers without a vacation… Road tripping with toddlers... You name it! I’ve been there and I am here to tell you how modern, educated women bring up their kids.
