Today Motherhood Beat The Shit Out Of Me

My day starts with three hours at the zoo listening to my 3-year-olds moan, fight and constantly ask me to do something for them. I then take my eldest to an afternoon event at her school. There I am, in the midst of another child packed activity, shattered and kinda recovering from a night out we had last night, PLUS did I mention we ran out of milk this morning so I hadn’t had a coffee all freaking day?!?!?! The twins and Mike join us at some point, there is more moaning, “why did she have a bigger slice...

There Is Nothing Sexier Than Being Real

Last week I shared the “perfect” selfie on Instagram (see the small image on the bottom left). It got a whole lot of “likes”, friends told me I was sexy and I even made it my new profile picture on Facebook. Today I am sharing the ‘behind the scenes’ of that image. How I actually looked when it was taken, without 20 attempts to get it right, without cropping out the bits I don’t like and without adding the ‘make me look pretty’ filter. You see, over in the weekend I read an article about how more and more...

You Are A Sexy, Pregnant Goddess

Guest Post by Gail B. Hoffer-Loibl Hey, you! Yes, you with the beautiful round belly. I see you shuffling along, tugging at the waist of your maternity jeans, wondering how you could possibly ever fit into your normal clothes again. I see you hunched over in your chair, trying to make your belly look a bit smaller because it is so much bigger than your friend’s who is a month ahead in her pregnancy. Do you know how sexy you are? And not in the creepy, depths of the Internet fetish kind of sexy. I’m talking full on, goddess, make...
