Review (& Giveaway): Dirty Birdie Bath!
So I’ve recently stumbled upon a kids bath product that is taking over my bathroom with its brightness and cheer! Strolling through one of the Wellness Warehouses a few weeks ago, I found these bright little sachets of happiness, and as soon as we got home, my son “needed” to bath. From a not-so-little town you’ve probably never heard of in Germanland, called Dresdner, the Dresdner Essenz company created the Dirty Birdie range of certified organic bath cosmetics specifically for children, with specific natural essential oils to help do the [Read More...]

Do You Believe In Magic?
By Natalee Holmes. Last week I was hit with that awful question that a parent dreads…ok, ONE of the awful questions every parent dreads.. “Mommy, is Santa real? Miguel says it’s the parents. Is it?” I was driving. And when he said “I just want to know the truth now” I realised that it was time to tell him. But I was driving. He was behind me.

Join Our Exclusive iParent Workshop!
As a mom of a 4 year old, I’m so aware of THE “burning issue” in South Africa of Education. The questions of ‘which school’, ‘which opportunities’, ‘which extra-curricular activities’, ‘what will give my child the best advantage’ are ever-present in conversations with my son’s father, because we know that too many public schools are dysfunctional, and way too many young South Africans exit the schooling system without even basic numeracy and literacy skills. With the increase in accessibility, and growing necessity for technology in this day and age, our kids are figuring out how [Read More...]

I Got Divorced Last Week… and I’m Still Standing!
By Kathy Bruggemann. Yes, it didn’t actually kill me. There were moments in the last months, and if I have to be quite honest, specifically on court day last week, that I was actually hoping the earth would just swallow me whole, and that this reality wasn’t mine. It’s not as much that I didn’t want it, ‘cause for those who have engaged and asked, who know the situation or us, understand that this decision was indeed spurred by me almost a year ago now. But finality is a surprise, every time. When you take a nostalgic look back at [Read More...]

REVIEW: Get squeezing with the Infantino Fresh Squeezed Squeeze Station
By Chereen Strydom: The ingenious tool that makes preparing and storing your own purees easy – and so much fun to boot! Confession: I rely on ready-made baby foods far too much than I’d care to admit. As a work-from-home mom, I’m working against the clock at the best of times so any free time that I do have, is spent playing with my son, as opposed to in the kitchen slaving over the stove and whipping up fantastic, nutritious [Read More...]
