Dunny money!

If I had a dollar for every nappy I’ve changed I would be a millionaire! Well maybe not…but I would be rich, I’m sure of it! We are taking up a challenge and I would love for you to join us. This is a great way to help teach your littlies that some of the…

finding the good

Winter has a way of reminding me that I am human after all! We have had 2 sick kiddies this week = 3 trips to the Dr, one trip to the Emergency room, too much money spent at the chemist, not enough sleep, too much tv time and a cleaner house (when you can’t go…

Stuff!

Ever have days where you feel like you are sinking in all the ‘stuff’? Sometimes it is the ‘stuff’ that everyone wants from you. Sometimes it is the ‘stuff’ that you have to do. Sometimes it is the ‘stuff’ of life that can weigh you down and sometimes it is just STUFF! We are blessed…

Busy Busy and about to get busier!

I read something once about how when someone asks you “How are things going?” Our general response is…’busy’. Whatever I was reading was talking about being cautious with the word busy…that we use it to often and that it makes others feel like the should do more, or that you have no room for relationships…I…

Becoming the best mum I can be

I remember rearranging my parents lounge room with the girl next door to create a ‘house’ for us and our ‘babies’ when I was about 8 years old. That was what I wanted to be…a mum. When Rick and I were engaged, we had the ‘talk’ about when we would start having kids. Rick said…

Such a time as this

Change? I am all about change! Change is fresh, exciting and new! But…. Decisions….not so keen about. Decisions are hard, daunting, unnerving. And to make matters worse…I am an emotional decision maker. Can you tell the Pekan’s are spending lots of time thinking?? Feel like God has got something big for us….just gotta decide (and…

How do you handle it?

They say you can be sure of two things in life…taxes and death. I say, you can be sure of 3 things…taxes, change and death. Change in one of those button pressing things. It is always able to conjure a comment out of someone, typically along the lines of ‘I hate change’ or the classic,…

He said what???

While sitting at Toddler Jam today my wonderful friends husband who is being a SAHD (Stay at home dad) just for this month commented, (while eating a delicious looking cupcake and sipping punch from a coconut cup, with a little umbrella and everything), “I don’t know why mums complain about staying at home with the…
