  • Travelling #101 – Traveling with kids

    Well, it is time for our monthly homeward bound trip. It is wonderful to travel and to see places but for a mother, going on ‘holiday’ is more like having to work overtime, well without the benefit of extra pay! Kids are not made for long journeys and by long, I mean anything above an…

    The Amazing Love of Grandparents

    Goodmorning friends! I hope you had an awesome weekend, mine, however, mine was somewhat bittersweet. I had a totally disastrous month end shopping experience with my two kids and my eldest (2 year old is sick at the moment!) but on the other hand, my parents came over – my kids love them! It was…

    Having two kids close together isn’t as hard as you think!

    Having kids a year a part from each other is cutting is close, I agree. But it is not insane! Don’t be afraid mothers’ and mothers’-to-be, it’s not as scary as everyone makes it seem!

Welcome to The Mum Blog SA. On this blog you will find many posts pertaining to my journey through motherhood. Motherhood, no matter how easy your mum makes it look, is actually a lot harder than you think. I am the mother of a beautiful 1-year-old girl and a gorgeous 2-year-old son, who are born almost exactly a year apart from each other.

Why start The Mum Blog SA?

To be honest, I started this blog as a creative outlet for myself in the hope of connecting with other mothers. As a young mum, I want to create an identity for myself in this world. I love and appreciate that my identity is now made up of Yash, Ralee & Avi but I also need to make it about myself. I want to share my journey through motherhood with all the moms out there and I hope to share theirs.
 
My blog started out with my husband saying to me, “You should write a book baby”, yep, those were his exact words. I have always enjoyed writing, I have written letters, random thoughts and poems on random occasions and often my husband has been the critic of my work, well not really critic but he is brutally honest! He sparked the idea in my mind that I should attempt to do something with my words.
 
I hold a diploma in IT, I am a mother of two children and a wife, I definitely felt like I had a whole lot to say. After a few months of consideration, I began The Mum Blog SA, just two weeks ago! My aim is to connect and share the journey of motherhood with other moms out there, that face life’s ups and downs while trying to be superwoman for her kids. Even though we are moms, we are allowed to do something for ourselves, motherhood does not have to mean giving up your identity, instead embrace it and add it to your existing identity. You are YOU, not just the wife of Mr SO and SO or the mum of baby Cuteness (although there’s nothing wrong with those introductions – I love being known as the mum of Yash & Ralee or as Mrs Gobin!) but it is also important that you do not lose yourself on the way.
