#makeyourmove during this month of love with closeup.

February is the month of love all around the world. We celebrate Valentines Day yearly, putting guys in a frenzy of what to buy their Valentine to ensure that they don’t end up sleeping on the couch! If you’re a fan of romantic comedies like I am, you would know that one of the cliché’s of any romance movie is the lead girl’s smile. Yep, her smile is something that people are supposed to fall in love with. Well, newsflash guys, us girls, also dig smiles!

We bought a zoo! Okay, no, but we’ve bought a home! {The Gobin’s are making one last move!}

at

Yes people, The Gobin’s have finally purchased a home! For 5 years, we’ve moved around from Mooi River to Richards Bay and within those 5 years, we’ve also moved house more than 6 times. After a great struggle (post to follow on The Opinionated Wife), we managed to bag our perfect house, one that we are about to renovate and make into a home!

Do you know baby CPR? Here’s a list of medicine & simple CPR instructions

at

Last year my son got sick very badly with Croup. Croup is awful by the way, your kid’s throat is sore, they can’t eat anything, they get this awful temperature and you can see what a battle it is for them to breathe. We took him to the doctor but to be honest, I was too afraid to sleep even though we were medicating him with good medicine. I was scared that he might stop breathing and I wouldn’t know. Thankfully with lots of love, care and medication, he was back in good health soon and did not contract the sickness again (touch wood!), however, now with baby number 3 on the way, I realize how important it is to know about baby CPR in case of emergency.

Packing my labor bag & baby bag

at

With baby number 3 on the way and with January making a fast appearance, I’ve decided to start packing my hospital bag. I know you may think that it’s quiet early, but with the increased amount of braxton hicks, pain and with the baby turning to face down; I feel as though it’s best to be prepared.

Baby Number 3 on it’s way & all that jazz

at

In December 2017, my husband and I were totally amped for the new year. As we all do, we had plans ..not like set in stone plans but just plans for 2018. We began 2018 with a good start, all was going fine and dandy. We had developed a great routine with both our kids, we were all under one roof, my husband even quit smoking after 14 long ass years. I was so proud, I still am proud.
