I Will Do Whatever I Want!

A few days ago Amy Schumer uploaded a video to YouTube of her shutting down a heckler who yelled “show us your tits”, during her live performance in Stockholm. I love Amy. She is such a funny lady and I have always been a fan, but I must say I love her even more now after she stopped her set to give this guy a piece of her mind. You see, this type of ‘casual’ sexist comments are NOT cool. Too many people walk around thinking it’s okay to say stuff like that or make other sexist comments, almost as if...

Bad Experience While On Holiday

We’ve just come back from a week in Italy. We stayed in one of those ‘family friendly’ resorts. The type that has only families in it, and gives you the feeling that it’s super safe, almost as if nothing bad can happen cos everyone around you is exactly like you. But the truth is that this feeling is merely an illusion.The truth is that this type of place is no less dangerous than anywhere else you might take your kids to, because the reality is that – even ‘crazies’ go on holiday. Last day of our holiday. I was...

To follow Tova’s Blog on Facebook: www.facebook.com/mythoughtsaboutstuff/ I’m nearly two stones heavier than I was on my wedding day. Since having three kids, my weight has gone up, my boobs have dropped down and I’ve got a fantastically massive c section scar, as well as an overhang of skin, fat and dead muscles tissue dangling over it, that will never go away unless I surgically remove it. I think it’s safe to say that I have not ‘bounced back’. Today’s body is not the body I had when I was 16. Not the body I had in my 20’s or 30’s...

An Open Letter To Kim Kardashian From An Average Mom

Dear Kim, A few nights ago on ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ (yes I’m a fan), you said how happy you were to be in Fergie’s new music video M.I.L.F$ (which is supposed to have some sort of ‘pro mom’ message). You said that you are “all about” empowering other moms but later added that you are not like one of those “mom moms”.   When you said ‘mom mom’ I can only imagine that what you meant was the ‘average mom’. A mom like me – who works hard, raises her kids to the best of her ability and...

Let’s Be Honest About Breastfeeding

Before having my first child just over five years ago, I knew very little about breastfeeding and did not hold a strong position on whether or not I was going to breastfeed. I was kind of laid back thinking ‘I would give it a go’ not because I was pressured or cos I felt strongly it was the best way to go, but just cos I fancied doing it. In my mind it was going to be so natural and easy cos as far as I could tell, it was kind of what my body was supposed to be...
