Quick life update

I am a working mom. Every single weekday – unless i’m on leave – I spend 8 hours of each weekday in the office, working! This is all by choice. I love being able to support myself. I love having money in my bank account. I love being able to get what I want, when I want, without thinking twice about it. I love buying stuff for my daughter and I enjoy that I am able to do so without […]

How I maintain my 3 year old’s natural hair

As a mom with no village around to help me, I’ve come to understand fully what people mean when they say being […]

A promise to my Daughter

I am an emotional wreck as i’m writing this. Tears, snot, everything you can imagine…it’s all happening! Tonight is one of those nights where I don’t have to stress about getting to work early because of work the next day. I am on leave tomorrow, so I had a couple of hours to kill before bedtime.

Things I know for sure about travelling by taxi with a TODDLER
