Breastfeeding a toddler, Gabby is 2!

Here we are. 2 years later. Wow. Just over 2 years ago I was sitting at my first La Leche League meeting wringing my hands over my 7 months pregnant belly. I was nervous, very naive about breastfeeding and scared of failure. I am also not great at public speaking and even in this very

Kicking the Antibiotics

Early last month I posted about trying to get my children off what felt like constant antibiotic use. The post was well received and I was happy to see I wasn’t the only one worried about this. I realize that the weather is starting to warm up and that means less illness, but it is

Spice Route

I haven’t seen my friend Warren for about 2 years. We were at school together and were good friends and like to touch base with each other every now and then. After wishing him for his birthday we communicated briefly and decided to get together. He suggested we go to Spice Route in Paarl.  

Toddling Toddler

About a week and a half ago, my baby took her first wobbly steps! Of course, I had to Instagram them: Click to view video.   She is growing up so very fast. She is doing well on the immunity booster the doctor prescribed. She has had a fever that has gone away on its

Medical Madness

I have been back to the doctor yesterday. More medical issues.   For the past month or so I have been experiencing severe pain in my joints. Although I feel it in most joints every now and then, my wrists are the most sore and it has gotten to a point where they hurt every
