Busy Multi-Tasking Mummy

Dex meeting his "cousin" Anna for the first time.

So I just realised it has been over a week since I last posted! And that post was a blah post too. Oops. Sorry bloggy friends. I will try harder.

So what have I been doing?

Well, I have been busy over at The Mummy Diaries, we had our first giveaways, one for the blog and one for the Facebook Page. The birth stories keep rolling in too, which is great, please feel free to send yours in, with pictures if you like. Email them to us here.
Trying to do "surprised" faces. I don't think Dex got it.

On Friday last week, I set up a new blog page called www.nzwahmshowcase.blogspot.com. The idea of it is to give free advertising to Work at home parents. It was initially WAHMs but I decided that was a little sexist of me and so changed it. Of course I will support WAHDs as well! So anyway, the idea is that as WAHPs can join up and as they post new articles to their blogs advertising their products/services, I will have them added to mine, to increase the traffic to their pages, and hopefully increase their business. At some stage I would like to have paid advertising on there also, but for now, the site is totally free and I am doing it from the goodness of my heart :) Cos I'm nice like that. So if you want to be on board, please email me. There is only 4 followers so far, but I hope that as it builds up a little, there will be more people wanting to advertise their products/services and more people to read about them!

There is also a permanent page which will eventually have a proper built up directory that you can go to to find particular services in your area, as there are more people to put in it!

No, he didn't drink the bourbon (so daddy tells me)

Moving on!

I made my first tutu! Not too bad for a first attempt I think. I have another under way now. This one is for a 9 year old, and the new one I'm making is bright blue and is for a 6 month old. As you can see I changed the ribbon, the pic with 2 ribbons is what it looks like now.

I have been working, walking and weight watching. 300g down last week, which is better than gaining weight, which I was doing for the few weeks before this one.

Besides that, I have been trying to spend lots of quality time with my 2 favourite boys.

So that's me! The last 9 days of my life. Now I have to go feed the cat before she...
A. Wakes up Dex with her constant meowing.
B. Drives me to insanity with her door scratching.

And then it is bed time. Night Night all!


  1. I LOVE the tutu! I am sure these would be a hit at the markets - it is something I would most definitly buy if I stumbled accross it!

  2. Really? Oh yay! Apparently she took this one to her ballet class and her teacher LOVED it. I like that for incentive :)


I would love to hear from you, please leave me a message!
